How Do I Care For My Watch?

Caring for your watch is essential to ensure good working order. There are a number of websites that are helpful in giving information in order to keep your watch in good condition. After all, if you have invested good money to enjoy the luxury of a quality item, doesn't it make sense to maintain it? Like any machinery, watches require tune-ups and servicing as well as repair. Every 4–5 years, a watch should be serviced completely.

In the long run, by maintaining the good condition of your watch, you will be saving yourself the expense of a future purchase to replace it. And what price can be put on the satisfaction of owning a work of quality?

Whatever value you place on your watch, be it a dollar value or emotional, it is certainly worth it!
