Modern High Grade Watches
Occasionally it can be difficult to receive satisfactory service from the manufacturer of a modern high grade wrist watch. There has been a boom in the popularity of these watches. As a result it has been hard for the makers to keep up with the demand for repair. Some factory service centers refuse to work on the older models.
Here at Masterpiece Watch, we have considerable experience with these watches. In most cases we can obtain genuine factory replacement parts. Precise testing and several adjustments are required to obtain the maximum performance from the watch. For this reason we cannot promise speed, only quality. We use genuine Rolex recommended leak test equipment and "state of the art" electronic timing equipment. With the proper equipment and attention to detail we often obtain better than factory performance from these watches. We have improved the accuracy on many Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega and other high grade watches to the satisfaction of their owners.
- Antique Pocket Watch Restoration requires special skills and a great deal of patience. Because of the age of these watches replacement parts are not available through conventional means and often a part must be specially fabricated and fitted precisely in order to insure that the watch performs as it should. These parts require days and many man hours to design and then finally produce. Preservation of originality is an important consideration when designing and fabricating these pieces. Each restoration is a unique project in and of itself. Sometimes the expense is no object and other times practicality is in order.
- Some customers enjoy using these old watches today. While there is some risk in using an antique watch on a daily basis there is also a huge satisfaction and joy to experience a watch that still keeps time as it did hundreds of years ago. Many times this is the same watch that their father or grand father might have used every day.
