Cleveland Watch Repair

Warranty is limited. Watches mishandled not wound correctly or dropped after service are not covered. Broken balance staffs, jewels, pivots, crystals are not covered from being dropped. Broken mainsprings and other parts are not covered unless it was replaced. After service, all watches are placed on extended testing for days. They can vary plus or minus depending on temperature, position and how often you wind it. Vintage watches are not waterproof, be careful even washing your hands. Please be kind when you wind your watch. Wind it slowly until it stops unless it is an automatic, then wind until you feel some resistance. You must fully wind a mechanical watch daily for good time keeping.

Thank you.
