Water resistance service

Stage 1

Diagnostics by a watchmaker

Diagnostics form an integral preliminary step of any repair. The condition of the surface of the watch and its parameters are analysed. This allows us to respond to your needs while maintaining the highest quality of our services.

Stage 2

Cleaning of the case and the bracelet

We perform the multi-stage cleaning process using an ultrasonic cleaner and a BecoTechnic steam pressure washer.

Stage 3

Checking of the technical condition of the bracelet

We assess the technical condition of the case, bracelet or strap, checking, among other things, the connections of the strap/bracelet to the case. We also check the condition of the pins connecting the bracelet and the correct functioning of the bracelet clasp.

Stage 4

Diagnostics of the movement

In the case of mechanical watches, we check the balance amplitude and timeliness of the watch. We also check the correct functioning of the automatic winding mechanism.

In the case of quartz watches, we check the power consumption of the movement.

Stage 5

Adjustment / battery replacement

We perform movement adjustments on Vitschi equipment, complying with the parameters set for each movement calibre.

In quartz watches, we replace batteries.

Stage 6

Restoring of water resistance

After replacing the gaskets and assembling the case, we perform a water resistance test in a dry chamber (Vitschi Proofmaster), confirmed with a certificate.

Stage 7

Quality control

Once the repair has been completed, the watch will undergo a technical and aesthetic quality check, after which you will receive a notification that it is ready to be picked up.
