“I inspected it and have to say that they did a beautiful job”
About three weeks later I received a email stating that my watch had shipped, they provide a tracking number that I might keep a track of it, upon receiving the watch I inspected it and have to say that they did a beautiful job on the exterior cleaning and polish plus they replaced the clasp, I can only assume that the work done to the movement is of equal quality and detail this will be born out over time as I see how the accuracy is.
They also provided the pressure test ticket in the return package.
I would recommend this company if you have need of jewelry repair.”

Types of Watch Movements Repair Services
Many folks consider a watch’s movement to be the beating heart of a watch, a complicated entity making it operate.
There are many types of watch movement mechanisms, and we have built out our teams, environments, and processes to handle them.
Manual Winding Movement Services
Mechanical watches (hand-wound movements) are the oldest type of watch movement ever made. Manual winding movements, unlike quartz, are powered by winding a spring inside the movement. No battery necessary. The watch spring releases energy as it unwinds that is then transferred through the rest of the watch.

Automatic Movement Services
Automatic watches wind themselves while worn on the wrist. The one drawback is that if you don’t wear an automatic watch for a prolonged period of time, the watch might need servicing.

Quartz Movement Services
Quartz movements are battery-powered. No winding is ever required, even if you don’t wear the watch for some time. Quartz watches are also more accurate in comparison to mechanical timepieces. Typically, quartz movement batteries will last between 12 to 24 months.

Cracked Your Watch's Crystal?
You May Need Watch Movement Servicing With a Cracked Crystal
In some cases, when a watch crystal is shattered, it is important to check on the watch movement since microscopic glass or sapphire particles can get into the movement causing damage. This can cause the need for watch movement servicing, and potentially replacement of movement parts.

Commonly Asked Watch Repair Questions
The Watch Movement Repair Service depends on the type of watch movement that your watch has. Watches need to be serviced on a regular basis, just like a car would. All you would need to do is send in your living heirloom of a watch and we make sure it gets the proper care, like lubrication and complete disassembling to prevent wear and tear.
Print your shipping label and order slip. Choose your insurance, pack your repair(s). My Jewelry Repair provides step-by-step instructions for safe packaging and travel. All you have to do from there is schedule USPS courier pickup if you don’t want to leave your home, or drop-off (with your nearest USPS location). Tracking included for safe arrival and transparency.
There are several giveaways to identify what type of Watch Movement that your watch has. One of the easiest ways is to check the text on the back of the case or on the dial; what you can look for is the caliber number engraved within this text. You can either identify the type of movement by the knowledge of how often you wind your watch, or observing the actual movement of the watch hands.
If you have trouble identifying the type of watch you have and need it serviced, our Certified Watchmakers will be able to do that for you with no problem.
