Watches have evolved from a time telling equipment to a lot more in the last few decades. The watch you wear can say a lot about your personality, style, your social status, and your taste in finer things. There are many luxury watch brands that have captured the hearts and imagination of people worldwide. These watches tend to speak for those who own them.  

However, owning and wearing watches and maintaining them are two different things. We have a tendency to throw out things that don’t work or try to fix it ourselves. Watches often fall under this category although it shouldn’t. People often try to fix whatever is wrong with their watch by themselves or try to hand it off to the cheapest possible repair shop. All of this can be disastrous for your luxury watches. The best thing to do is to know how to handle a situation where your watches might need repairs or servicing. 

Here are a few dos and don’ts for watch repairs and watch servicing that will help you in the future. 

Don’ts: Luxury Watch Repair and Servicing

  • Do not try to clean your watches at home. Watches require expert knowledge and tools to ensure the watch is not damaged by cleaning process which is not possible at home    
  • Don’t give your luxury watches to your local watch repair centers. The watch service or watch repair sector in India is unorganized. There aren’t many reliable places with trusted professional who can deal with luxury watches or their repair  
  • Do not have your luxury watch parts be replaced with off brand or local parts. This will damage your watch.  
  • Do not ignore dampness, water damage, changes in speed, tears and discoloration of watch straps, dents or cracks on the watch.
