In a series of different steps your watch is disassembled into its component parts. One begins with the disassembly of the case and bracelet. Both are taken apart and refurbished – goldsmiths repair any damage to the case and bracelet and, where necessary, set a diamond anew; new seals are fitted and the case and bracelet reassembled.
During this time a watchmaker takes the movement in hand. Piece by piece, the movement is taken apart, starting with the dial and hands. The movement is separated into its component parts, all of which are cleaned with great care and lubricated once again following assembly. It goes without saying that the watchmaker replaces all worn-out parts.
The movement is then assembled, lubricated and regulated in accordance with the watch’s average daily rate. Following assembly we test of all of the watch functions very carefully. If the movement passes all the relevant tests, we mount the dial and the hands.
Upon completion of these maintenance operations we test the energy performance, power reserve, water resistance and rate values over a period of several days. In a final check we take great care to test all the functions and the aesthetics once more.
We return the watch as soon as we are satisfied that it meets the strict standards of Glashütte Original in every respect.
