Whether pendulum clock or wristwatch – a mechanism constantly in use over many years requires once in a while a complete service. In case of such an overhaul, the watch is completely disassembled, all its components are cleaned and afterwards reassembled and oiled. An in-depth function check and fine-tuning complete this kind of service.
Depending on the brand, model and age, a complete service is usually necessary every four to five years, though shorter or longer intervals are also possible. In order to ensure the waterproofness of a watch according to its specifications, its tightness should be checked at regular intervals and, if necessary, restored. This is necessary as the seals become brittle over time and must eventually be replaced.
Zigerli+Iff is an official and certified service center of Rolex and employs its own highly experienced watchmakers in-house. We will also gladly take care of other brands of renowned Swiss watch manufacturers. Depending on the type of work required, the availability of the spare parts and the cost efficiency, the maintenance work is carried out in our studio or we cooperate with the manufacturer.
In case of brands that we carry, batteries are replaced within a few hours, in case of external brands within 24 hours. Large clocks – especially pendulum clocks – are not only serviced but also picked up at your request and mounted again afterwards.
