What is a Quartz Watch Movement?
Quartz movements are battery-powered and winding is never required, even if you don’t wear the watch for some time. Although Quartz Watch Movements have fewer moving parts and do not need as much servicing as Mechanical Wind Up or Automatic Watch Movements, quartz movement batteries will last between 12 to 24 months and will need a battery replacement on the regular.
Quartz watches also break down over time and will need replacement services, especially in the case of battery acid and water damage that will affect the watch movement itself.
Quartz Movement Replacement Services
What is most important about your quartz watch is to replace the battery as swiftly as possible. Once the watch battery dies, there’s a chance that the battery can start leaking acid, which will do considerable damage to the movement. It is advised to not try to replace your own watch battery, unless you have the proper water pressurization equipment and trained expertise.
Our certified watchmakers have the knowledge and dexterity to successfully repair any problem on any type of watch movement in order to keep your watch running with optimal performance. To learn more about this concept look into the Types of Watch Movements.

Cracked Your Quartz 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 find yourself not winding your watch on the daily and needing a battery replacement, you most likely have a quartzl watch movement.
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.
It is recommended that your watch should be serviced every three to five years, also depending on how long the watch has been with or without the wearer's wrist. If you hear rattling when you lightly shake it or the timing of the movement is slightly off, these may be signs to get your watch serviced.
Remember, not all watches require repair, but all watches require routine care and maintenance.
It all depends on what your watch needs. Repairs such as a crystal replacement can get a little complicated depending if it's cracked, or shattered and glass fragments have damaged the movement. The chart below gives some insight to the most common types of watch repair services.
