Do you have a vintage watch that makes your heart skip a beat? Here at Timekeepers, we understand the pleasure that beautiful jewelry gives and also the upset it causes when it is damaged. Getting vintage jewelry repaired and restored is not a job for amateurs, and it makes sense to use a service like ours that guarantees your timepiece will come out in the best possible condition.
Common Damage To Watches
It’s common for watches to sustain damage, especially if it is a vintage model that is worn regularly, and whilst it is upsetting, it is not the end of the world. Here are three of the most common issues we see when it comes to watch damage:
• Winding your watch when it is on your wrist. This can result in you over winding the watch or even damaging the crown due to the angle you are winding it at.
• Exposing your watch to water. Vintage watches are not waterproof, and many people forget they have them on their wrist when they decide to do the dishes, which results in a waterlogged watch.
• Failure to store the watch correctly. Watches need to be kept in an environment that is not prone to significant temperature changes as this can cause the movement to stop functioning properly.
In addition to these common problems, we frequently see watches that are just simply old and worn that need some love in order to restore them back to their former glory.
