Watch movement is like a fine automobile engine and needs to be regularly lubricated to run smoothly. Mechanical movements should be serviced every 3-5 years, and quartz 4-6 years.
Swiss Watch Materials & Tools Ltd. repairs clocks and watches as well as antique pocket watches and contemporary quartz, including Bulova Accutron watches of various brands like Seiko, Ronda, ETA, Pulsar, & Citizen.
Adequate lubrication is required in order for your watch movement to keep time properly. If you think your watch needs to be serviced/cleaned but you wish to hold off, it is wise to store your watch until the time is right for you.
It will depend on the movement caliber in your watch but generally speaking we recommend that you change your battery every year.
