Popular Watch Repair Terms

Watch repair shops that fix men and women’s wrist and pocket watches keep timepieces accurate and well maintained. If water gets inside a watch, a band becomes damaged, or a replacement battery is needed on an electric watch a repair specialist can help. The following are some common watch repair terms to be familiar with.

  • Swiss – Swiss made watches have a reputation for being incredibly accurate and of high quality. The first electronic wristwatches made with quartz were developed in Switzerland, which contributed to the Swiss watchmaker’s reputation for innovative products.
  • Pocket – A pocket watch is designed to be carried in an individual’s pocket, rather than worn on the wrist. They often have chains that can be attached to clothing to prevent them from getting lost. Some are open faced, while others have covers.
  • Mechanical – A mechanical watch operates through mechanical mechanisms driven by a spring. Mechanical watches come in a variety of styles, including pocket watches and men and women’s wristwatches. Antique watches are exclusively mechanical. They will require repairs over time and winding to keep them accurate.
  • Automatic – An automatic watch used electric mechanisms that are powered by a battery or quartz crystal. These watches may derive energy from a wearer’s movement to keep them accurate or need occasional battery changes.
  • Winder - Winders keep watch movements accurate. Older mechanical watches and clocks require cleaning and lubrication as well as winding to maintain accurate time keeping. Automatic watches that depend on movement should also be kept in a winding device when not being worn.

    Watch restoration or repair stores will work with every type of watch available with the proper equipment so your old pocket or wrist watch will have a battery that works and a clock that ticks. Antique models that require winding may sometimes need to be fixed for it to work as if it were new. You can easily find a company that knows how to fix both women's and men's versions, whether they're new or part of a vintage collection. If you dive underwater a lot, you may find that the mechanical clock has stopped working. Finding what is wrong can be time consuming, especially if you aren't sure exactly what you're doing. Automatic, luxury, and military clocks will come in gold, silver, platinum, or leather. Of course, if you have broken the device you may find that it's hard to replace certain parts unless you take it to a watch repair and restoration company. You can find one online or in a phone book. Let them know what materials the watch is made out of so they can make the proper arrangements if you need to replace or install a new link. Compare prices with different companies and see who can fix the watch in the least amount of time if you're under a time limit. Broken equipment can be hard to locate if you aren't sure where to look, while a professional knows where to look immediately depending on the problem. If you aren't happy with the level of service you're given, take your watch to a different store and get an estimate from them before making a decision.
