ROB. ENGSTRÖM, OUR WATCHMAKERS PERFORM MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR WORK ON WRISTWATCHES, WALL WATCHES, TABLE WATCHES AND GRANDFATHER WATCHES. OUR WATCHMAKERS ARE SPECIALLY TRAINED FOR THE BRANDS SOLD BY ROB. ENGSTRÖM.
Our watchmakers are trained on-site in the factories that manufacture the watchwork. The watchmakers have access to the best tools and have a large set of spare parts in the warehouse. For example, we have a complete warehouse for Rolex watchwork produced after the 1970s. As our customer, you can be secure in allowing us to take care of any repair and maintenance work that your wristwatch needs.
What is included in a watch inspection session?
The watchmakers begin by copying all the numbers on the watch and registering them on your customer card.
- Afterwards, the watch is opened, the movement taken apart and the dial and hands detached.
- All individual parts are taken apart and placed in an ultrasonic cleaner. After this, they are completely clean.
- It is then possible to polish up the watch case and chain according to the original finish. If the watch has plastic glass, it is switched out.
- All parts are examined under a magnifier and switched out if there is even the slightest damage.
- The movement is then reassembled together after all moving parts have been oiled. This is done using an ultra thin needle that has been dipped in a special oil, which is applied on the parts.
- After the movement has been assembled together, it is tested in a machine and adjusted according to the time intervals that different watch movements are required to meet. Afterwards, the watch is assembled together.
- The watch is then placed on a winding-up machine, which winds the movement up automatically. This control is performed for three days.
- Afterwards, the movement’s performance and cycle time are measured again. If the watch meets these requirements, then the servicing work is complete.
