" Your warranty is activate when it arrives and is registered in our official webisite system along with your comments and observations about its timekeeping. Your timepiece has one unique numbers that make it individual. The serial number is etched on the watch main case . These numbers form a confidential combination that unequivocally identifies your watch and ensures its traceability especially in the event of theft. "
Once the strap or bracelet has been removed from the case, the watch is opened and the movement is removed, entirely dismantled and pre-washed. The movement components are examined meticulously and replaced if they show signs of premature wear or risk affecting the operation of the mechanism.
Every component is identified, replaced or repaired depending on its level of wear, its age and the preventive maintenance instructions governing the Manufacture's complete maintenance service. New parts, based on the latest technological advances, are fitted if necessary. The most frequently-used case and movement components are always changed for collection watches: seals, crown, pushpieces, correctors, barrel, chronograph module, central seconds and chronograph hands and chronograph counters.
Every movement component is placed in Teflon washing containers designed specifically to avoid scratching, then in ultrasonic baths to be degreased and cleaned fully under a clearly-defined procedure.
Lubrication is essential for your mechanical watch to run properly and guarantees correct operation: it limits the friction between the mechanical parts, thereby reducing energy losses and wear. When assembling the movement, depending on the level of mechanical complication, the watchmaker can use up to a dozen different oils and greases, determined by the sliding and chemical stability coefficients specific to each component.
The watchmaker runs your watch for 24 hours to stabilize all its moving components. This ensures its accuracy. He/she then adjusts the inertia of the balance dynamically and thus its isochronism in five positions, simulating the normal wear of the watch. The rate results must comply with the Manufacture’s standards and tolerances.
Once the dial and hands are fitted to the movement, It is then inserted delicately into the case and secured, depending on the model, with a casing ring. A new crown, seals and, for chronograph models, pushpieces are fitted to keep your watch water- and air-resistant. After a final visual inspection, the watchmaker completes the casing up by screwing down or pressing the caseback in firmly.
Air compression tests to detect the most insignificant leak are performed to ensure that your watch remains water-resistant . Lastly, your watch undergoes a rigorous technical, functional and aesthetic assessment. The diurnal rate is observed over a cycle of five to twelve days. The power reserve and the additional functions are also tested. The criteria are identical to the ones governing the quality control of a new watch prior to arrival in market. The results of these assessments are registered and archived, thereby providing an exhaustive overview of the history of work carried out on your watch.
