Some of our watch services include:

Battery Replacement (including capacitors in Seiko Kinetic, and Citizen Eco-Drive)

A quartz watch that uses a battery doesn’t require any service until the battery needs to be replaced. This is usually done every 2-3 years. Most batteries can be replaced while you wait by one of our professional watchmakers. For more valuable timepieces we recommend a periodic cleaning of the case and band to keep your watch in tip-top shape.

Watch Band Repair and Replacement

We carry the areas largest supply of pins clasps and other watch band parts. Whether your watch band is completely worn out or you would just like something new our inventory of metal, leather, rubber, silicone, and fabric bands is second to none.

Stem and Crown Replacement

The crown is the piece on the side of the watch that is used to set the time. If you have a missing or broken stem and crown it is important to have it repaired right away. Dust, dirt, and moisture can enter the case through the crown and cause damage to your valuable timepiece. We have thousands of genuine and generic stems and crowns in our inventory.

Crystal replacement

The front part of the watch that is usually made of glass or plastic is called the watch crystal. Watch crystals can break, crack, and scratch from an impact to a hard surface. Nothing detracts more from your watch than a damaged watch crystal. We can replace your broken or damaged crystals so that your watch will look like new again. We have so many crystals that we had to dedicate a whole room in our new facility to crystal cabinets.

Gasket Replacement

If you are a scuba diver swimmer or someone who just likes to wear your watch 24/7 you should have the gaskets in your watch replaced and water tested every 2 years.

Case and Band Cleaning

Normal wear and tear can make your watch band and case stinky and dirty. We can clean your watch band and watch case in our commercial strength cleaners to remove any dirt, grime, and oder that has overtaken your watch.

In order to keep the movement in good condition these watches must be properly lubricated so that they can operate with minimal friction.
