About overhaul

Overhaul referring to the “Disassembly Inspection Cleaning '' is a type of  maintenance process on disassembling the entire movement of the watch, inspecting, cleaning and washing parts, repairing, lubricating, adjusting, and reassembling.

A watch is a collection of valuable parts, the movements of gears, springs, and other parts. Long-term use of a watch can cause deterioration and oxidation of lubricating oil that makes the watch rust and decay.

Leaving problems behind might lead to a lack of precision and cause damage to the parts, leading the watch irrecoverable. To prevent this, an overhaul maintenance will minimise the need for parts replacement and reduce cost in case of a breakdown.

Although there is no recommended overhaul period for battery-powered watches, unlike mechanical watches, they use mechanical oil for the internal parts, and if a watch is used for a long period of time, the oil can get dry and cause malfunctions. We recommend overhauling your watch if it does not work properly after battery replacement or if there is any inaccuracy.

We recommend every 3 to 5 years for mechanical watches, and every 5 to 7 years for quartz watches.

Even if the watch has no issue with the mechanism, deterioration and oxidation of lubricant oil, and corrosion of parts may occur. That is why we recommend periodic overhauls to ensure a long life for your watch.
