Warranty is limited to our discretion, up to 12 months, and within reason on work performed. Watches sold, mishandled, not wound correctly or dropped after service are not covered. Mishandled watches resulting in a broken balance staff, jewels, pivots, crystals, and other parts are not covered. Broken mainsprings and other parts are not covered unless those parts were replaced. After service, all watches are placed on extended testing. They can vary plus or minus, depending on temperature, position and how often you wind it. Some vintage watches can vary a couple of minutes per day. Watches sent back and not covered under warranty will be charged labor, parts and return shipping. It is recommended to keep vintage watches from water. Be careful even washing your hands. Avoid rain and high moisture environments. Most vintage watches were not designed to be waterproof or dust proof. If your watch has water damage, it will not be covered by warranty. You must fully wind a mechanical watch daily for good timekeeping, preferably, every 12 hours or less. Wind your watch slowly clockwise until it stops unless it is an automatic, then wind until you feel some resistance, generally 30 to 60 half turns of the crown. If your watch is an automatic and does not manual wind, it is recommended to gently shake the watch side to side for a couple of minutes spinning the rotor inside and winding the watch, before wearing it to get the mainspring started. If your watch has rapid day/date advance, do not advance until well past midnight to avoid damage to the mechanism. Keep vintage watches from rough activity, sports, construction, hammering, golfing, exercising. Most vintage watches have no shock protection and damage can occur if dropped or receive a sudden shock. A watch overhaul does not cover everything that can go wrong with a watch in the future, it is limited in scope because too many variables are out of our control and a watch is a very delicate machine.

Thank you.
