Certified Watch Repairs & Services
If your watch has slowed down, isn't keeping time, or has simply stopped working, it likely needs a service. Most mechanical watches (those that don't require a battery) should be serviced every 3-5 years. This depends greatly, however, on the watch and how it is worn. Whether it's a Rolex watch, an Omega watch, or a Seiko watch, many factors contribute to a watch's service cycle, and unexpected bumps and accidents may mean your watch needs service sooner. Whatever the cause may be, if you find your watch or clock isn't working like it should, it is important to have the piece serviced as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

The Watch Repair Process
When you bring your watch in, we'll examine it thoroughly to correctly diagnose the problem and give you a free estimate. Sometimes the problem may be a broken part on a Rolex watch; sometimes an old Omega watch needs to be completely taken apart and rebuilt. In any case, we'll let you know what the issue is and what it will cost.
Upon your approval, we will begin the process of servicing your watch. If the watch requires a full service, it will be expertly disassembled, with every part examined and repaired or replaced as needed. If a part is needed (for instance on a Raymond Weil watch), we will source an authentic replacement; if the watch is older, we may have to fabricate a replacement, which we are happy to do. The watch will be cleaned with a multistage cleansing machine to remove microscopic detritus. After cleaning, the parts will again be examined for any issues, and barring further concern, the movement will be reassembled and lubricated and placed on the timer to ensure that it's accurate and running perfectly.
As soon as your timepiece is ready, we'll let you know so you can pick it up at your convenience. At Arlington Watch Works, we pride ourselves on doing quality work, the right way. You can depend on us to have your timepiece running like new again, regardless of how old or what type it is.
