What do we mean by complete services?
Our complete services produce good lasting results. Because every watch problem is unique, we carefully check the repairs needed. Partial repairs are unwise. First of all, they lead to further problems down the road. Second, a string of repairs is more costly than doing the job right in the first place. Compete services include…Modern Automatic Watch service, Modern Battery Powered Watch restoration, and Antique and Vintage Watch restoration.

What is the difference between Modern, Vintage and Antique Watches?
The Watch Companies use 21st century technology to produce modern luxury watches. They use special materials. They use special oils and chemicals. In addition, they use service ideas that extend service intervals and maintain accuracy. Hence, we service modern luxury watches with factory quality oils, chemicals, and parts. We also employ fine tuning for the best time keeping. Plus, we use only genuine factory parts when available from the manufacturer. And, we test the watches with testing equipment recommended by the manufacturer. You can see some of our equipment Here.
Vintage watches have been around a long time. As a result, they often have worn parts, and a long repair history. As a result, they must be carefully checked for hidden defects. Also, finding parts is an issue. Complete service may involve simple cleaning and oiling or it may become a major project. For those that enjoy wearing a fine piece of history, the expense can be a wonderful investment. At Masterpiece we have much experience with restoration of vintage watches. We have pictures HERE.
Antique watches have an even greater repair history than vintage watches. And, parts for antique watches are rarely available. They also may have unusual mechanisms. Accordingly, the parts must be repaired or remade. Hence, repair requires the skills of a master watchmaker. Our master watchmaker can do the job. Some antique watches have great value because of their history. Others are valued for their beauty, or unique qualities. At masterpiece, we repair old watches. No watch is too old.
