Had my watch serviced.
I was surprised that service will cost S$240.00! Price will go up if they need to replace anything inside.
After a month, I received a notification that my watch is ready and that there will be no additional costs.
After collection… I was informed that they will provide 2 years warranty after the service…
They will also give you a case, and the parts replaced from your watch.
Things I learned during collection…
When adjusting the date, time should be 6:30!
Do not adjust the date from 8:00 to 2:00! Since it’s my first time to hear this, I did some research and learned that the mechanism to change the date will start building up at 8pm and fully release at 2am.
So safest time (regardless of brand) to change the date is 6:30.
You will need around 40 hours to fully wind-up the watch. Just wear it regularly (or if you have a winder, use it). Do not vigorously shake the watch as it will case uneven wear on the watch’s internals and it will result to uneven oiling.
I initially thought S$240 for having my watch serviced is too much. But after seeing the watch fixed and on my wrist again, it was definitely worth.
My watches have stories and memories behind them, it’s one of the reasons why I’m still not using a smart watch.
