Calibrate and Regulate Movement

A standard watch repair procedure for mechanical watches, this process adjusts your watch’s movement, making it preform either faster or slower, according to its manufacturer’s specifications. Over time, mechanical watches require this service to improve time keeping accuracy and reliability. When your watch runs fast or runs slow, you may require movement regulation. When your watch requires movement calibration, our watchmakers will take the following measures:

  • First, our experts remove the case backing of your timepiece
  • Your watch will then be adjusted to perform more accurately depending on whether your watch is running too quickly or too slowly
  • By delicately moving the watch’s regulator bar in the positive or negative direction, your timepiece will run according to its original factory specifications
  • Once the regulator bar has been adjusted appropriately, the watch will be subjected to a time test to ensure its accuracy and precision in time keeping
  • After all inspections have been made, and each test completed successfully, your watch will be reassembled and a dry test will be performed to guarantee your watches resistance to water and moisture in accordance to its original manufacturer’s specifications

Regularly calibrating the movement of your mechanical watch will ensure that your timepiece will continue to keep time as it did the first time you put it on your wrist.

I've been very pleased with the service, web site, price/value, and shipping...I had 2 watches in for repair and the convenience of a web-based company can not be underestimated. When I did need to speak with a live person, I was greeted by a very respectful, knowledgeable and helpful associate. These qualities ensure a long lasting relationship, which is key, especially when providing service to clients with watches in the $10,000-20,000 range. Kudos to all!

I want to thank you for sending me a new watch. Or, maybe you made it look like a new one! Earlier this year, I sent the watch to the Cartier facility in Texas and they came back with estimates for needed repairs in a sort of laundry list — with no real explanation as to why a specific part needed replacement. I had them return the watch.  I appreciated the detail you gave as to why something needed to be done. Should the occasion arises in future, I will most certainly recommend your firm. Thank you.
