Clean, Oil, And Adjust

Product information


Cleaning, applying new oil, and adjusting is a basic maintenance for any fine timepiece. As the movement ticks and spins the hands, the oil lubricating all the gears slowly dries. When that oil is completely dry, the gears and springs are likely to break leaving you with a more expensive repair. We suggest this maintenance every 5 years. During this maintenance, we take each part of the movement of the watch apart, clean each piece, and reassemble with new oil and lubricant. We will ensure the gaskets are in good shape. Finally, we will verify the watch movement is working. The prices can vary and depends on how complicated the movements are. For example, my 1870s 18 karat yellow gold French pocket watch, which loses about 10 minutes per day, is more expensive to clean than my nice 1980s Rolex Day-Date, which normally keeps very well.
