Any high performance machine needs service every so often, your Quartz battery operated watch is no different. It is recommended that every four years or more your Quartz watch has a few routine services performed. The watch case is opened, cleaned, gaskets are checked and changed if we see necessary, and the battery is changed. The serviced watch is then electronically tested. Water resistance tests are performed if the watch has a rating of 10ATM or greater.
Danson Jewelers will replace your watch’s battery, clean the movement and test the movement for battery consumption.
If you notice that your watch is not keeping accurate time and it’s too fast or too slow, our Swiss Trained Authorized Watch Repair Technicians will return your watch to brand specific factory adjustments.
The watch bracelet is removed from the watch case and polished according to factory styles. Your watch bracelet will look like the day you first purchased it. Polish styles differ from brand to brand, and Danson Jewelers will make sure that your watch bracelet is done accordingly by taking all necessary steps.
The watch case is completely disassembled and bracelet or strap are removed. The watch movement is also removed and stored safely in order to protect it from any dust. The watch case is then placed in an ultrasonic cleaner, and given a deep cleaning to remove and dirt or dust. The case the then polished to factory finishing by our master polishers, and then placed in the ultrasonic cleaner again to remove any polishing dust. The movement is then returned to the watch case, all gaskets are replaced and the watch case is reassembled. The watch is then tested for water resistance.
The watch case, bracelet and mechanical movement are completely disassembled piece by piece. The watch case, bracelet, and the mechanical movement are then separately ultrasonically cleaned. If there are any worn or rusty parts in the mechanical movement they are replaced with genuine factory parts. The mechanical movement is then reassembled and lubricated, and then calibrated and placed into the case. The watch is then completely reassembled, regulated for timing, and pressure tested to insure water resistance.
The glass like material that protects the dial is called a crystal. If hit with the right amount of impact a crystal is susceptible to breaking. The three common types of crystals are acrylic, mineral and sapphire; with sapphire being the hardest and most scratch resistant. Our Swiss Trained Authorized Watch Technicians will replace your watch’s crystal with an original factory crystal. If an original factory crystal cannot be found, our technicians will custom fit a crystal that meets factory standards.

Water proof is a term loosely used in the watch industry, no watch is truly water proof. Water resistance, with the assistance of the proper gasket installed, is a rating that each watch has that tells the watch owner how much water pressure a watch can withstand. Every time a watch with a rating of 10ATM or greater is opened for any reason, the gasket should be checked and the watch should receive a pressure test to insure that the continues to stay water proof up to its manufacturer’s factory specifications. This test only applied to modern quartz battery or mechanical watch movements.
Repairing an older manual wind watch might be very expensive, and at many times the proper parts are no longer available; a quartz battery conversion might be the right move in this case. Once the quartz conversion takes place your watch will only require a basic service from time to time, and a fresh battery every year or so.
The Stem and Crown have a few important jobs in the functions of a watch. The Stem and Crown act as the primary connections from your watch’s movement when it comes to setting the date, time, and winding your watch. They also act as additional security for water resistance, and the crown also completes the watch’s look. Ensuring that your Stem and Crown are replaced using original manufacturer parts will aid in the longevity of your timepiece.
