We Specialize in Luxury Watch Repair & Service with Over 45 Years of Experience
COA – Clean. Oil. Adjust.
A COA service (a.k.a. COR or Overhaul) is our most complete service. Most manufacturers recommend that you have a COA completed every 3 to 5 years. Unlike the “service” offered by some other watch care facilities, where they may simply “clean your watch case and add a little oil”, our expert watchmakers follow manufacturers service guidelines to provide a fully intensive service.
A COA service consists of the following
Disassembly of the watch case, bracelet, and movement with a careful assessment of all parts for wear and damage.
Movement parts are thoroughly cleaned in a multi-stage ultrasonic cleaning machine. Worn or damaged parts are replaced.
The movement is reassembled using several types of high quality horological lubricant. The correct lubrication of the movement is essential to ensuring your watch continues to serve you for years to come.
Using an electronic timing machine the movement is calibrated and adjusted for correct time keeping. The movement is tested in multiple orientations in order to verify the correct Amplitude and Beat Rate and to reduce Beat Error.
The case and bracelet are polished, refinished and ultrasonically cleaned to remove scratches and blemishes.
The watch is reassembled with new gaskets and seals, and if applicable, a water-pressure test is performed.
All watches are then monitored during a 48 to 72 hour time test before being returned to the client.
One-Year Service Warranty
Watch Face Repair – Glass Face Watch Repair
The watch crystal is that front part of your watch, usually made of glass or plastic, which covers up the dial, or face. Since this part of the watch literally “faces” the rest of the world, it often takes a lot of abuse. They can scratch, crack or break just from dropping it on the ground. Thankfully, most watch crystals are easy to replace, and to replace with original parts.
What To Do?
If you’re finding your watch crystal is constantly getting scratched or cracked, a good option would be to upgrade to a sapphire crystal. Sapphire crystals are significantly stronger than mineral glass crystals, and are virtually scratch resistant.
Custom Made Crystals For Oddly Shaped Watches
Most crystals are readily available for replacement when damage occurs, but in the case that the crystals we have available don’t fit your particular watch, we can make a custom one just for you.
Sometimes you don’t just want your watch to run like new, but you also want it to look like new!
No matter how long you’ve owned your watch and how careful you are with it, sooner or later it’s going to lose some of its shine. Sometimes you’ll start to see little scratches or dents, or you might just notice an overall loss of luster. It can happen so gradually that you might not even notice. But one thing is for sure, once you get it back from our expert technicians, you’ll remember what it’s like to have that new watch again.
Our experts personally handle and polish each piece to give it that like-new shine. They have years of experience that you’ll see every time you look at your watch.
