How Often Should I Get My Luxury Watch Serviced?

As the proud owner of a luxury timepiece, you've likely invested a significant amount into your prized possession. As with any investment, it's important to protect your asset and ensure that your luxury watch continues to function properly and retain its value for years to come. That's where regular servicing comes in. But how often should you have your luxury watch serviced? The answer can vary depending on the brand, model, and usage of the watch. However, it is generally recommended to have a luxury watch serviced every three to five years. If the watch is worn sparingly, servicing can take place less often, but it's important to wind and run the watch at least once a month to keep the movement's parts lubricated. It's also worth noting that if you're going to be diving to extreme depths, it's recommended to have your watch serviced by the authorized service center, as most independent repair shops do not have access to water testing machines capable of testing beyond certain depths such as with the Tissot Seastar 1000 40MM. Since how often a watch should be serviced varies per watch, it's ultimately best to consult with the manufacturer or an authorized dealer to determine the ideal frequency for your specific timepiece.

How do I find a qualified watchmaker to service my luxury watch?  

If you're not sure where to start when it comes to finding a watchmaker to service your luxury timepiece, there are a few things you can do to narrow down your search. First, check to see if the manufacturer or authorized dealer offers in-house servicing or if they recommend a specific third-party service provider. If not, you can search for independent watchmakers or authorized dealers in your area who specialize in servicing luxury timepieces. You can also read reviews online or ask friends and family for recommendations. Once you've found a few potential service providers, be sure to ask about their experience and qualifications as well as the cost of their services. It's also important to ask about their warranty policy in case something goes wrong during the servicing process. By taking the time to find a qualified watchmaker to service your luxury timepiece, you can rest assured that your investment is in good hands and will be cared for properly.

In addition, it's crucial to ensure that the watchmaker has experience working with various types of watch faces, jewels, calibers, dials, and bezels commonly found in luxury watches. This expertise is essential for maintaining the integrity and value of your timepiece.
