"We encourage our customers to think of their luxury watches like luxury cars. The same way that Ferraris and Lamborghinis require regular upkeep to stay in top condition, new and pre-owned watches by top brands like Rado, TAG Heuer, and Rolex must also maintained every couple of years. And just like you wouldn't trust just any mechanic with your Ferrari, your luxury watch should also be serviced in the hands of professionals,"
Luxury watches need to be serviced every two to five years, Lodowski notes, depending on their type and functionality. Manhattan Time Service recommends that owners of water-resistant luxury watches have their timepieces inspected and pressure tested every two years to maintain the same level of resistance; during this kind of maintenance, the company's watch repair specialists inspect and, if necessary, replace the timepiece's gaskets and seals.
Owners of automatic or manual windup luxury watches should bring their timepieces in every three to five years, Manhattan Time Service recommends. When it comes to a Rolex watch repair, the company offers a meticulous process; after removing the watch movement, it is taken apart by a watch specialist and each component of the movement is cleaned by Manhattan Time Service's top rated, state-of-the-
Following reassembly, Manhattan Time Service subjects all luxury timepieces to a series of rigorous tests. Each watch is calibrated using a computerized timer and inspected both visually and technically to ensure that all functionalities are in working order. Finally, the watchmaker employs an automatic winder to simulate four days of use in various positions. Manhattan Time Service offers a one-year warranty on all of its repairs, with a six-month warranty available for vintage luxury watches.
“Owners of battery-operated luxury watches must be particularly careful about their repair schedules,” said one of Mitchell’s sons, Thomas Lodowski, an advanced level watchmaker. Although many wearers assume their batteries are fine until their watches stop running, our NY watch repair facility recommends that clients schedule a replacement every two years. After this point, there is a risk that battery acid will leak into the mechanism and destroy it.
