tradition and modern technics fertilise in my workshop.
Craftmanship for three generations
Watches being handed in for overhauling will be completely disassembled, all parts are examined for damage and, if necessary, repaired or renewed. After reassembling the clockworks, they are recalibrated by hand in use of oils of various viscosity, adjusted in different situations and, where appropriate and watertightness is tested. Cases and metal bands are polished and cleaned.
As you can see: Being a watchmaker for me has nothing in common with selling cheap short-living plastic parts.
I am a craftsman and I intend to remain so.
Even todays synthetic oils will slowly deteriorate and become detrimental for overhaul with a period of five years in order to secure a long and accurate life.
Watertight watches should be checked every year as the tiny seals gradually degree.
All these activities do not mean boredom or cause trouble, but being an important aspect of my job, which for me is a profession.
Something you can rely on!
