Maintenance Advice

When a quartz watch stops ticking, the typical solution is to replace the battery. However, if you own a high quality watch, the process is not quite so simple. You cannot simply take this watch to your local market, as the worker there likely lacks the experience and knowledge to handle luxury watches. Unlike other watches, water resistant watches require resealing and pressure testing when opened in order to maintain water resistance. As such, if a watch is opened without undergoing these processes the protective seals will not be resealed. This in turn could allow dirt, dust and moisture to enter the watch. These contaminants can cause significant damage to the internal mechanism and ultimately lead to an expensive watch servicing bill. Hence, it is always best to get Next watch battery replacements done professionally, as this can extend the time between servicing and save you money.

Frequent watch battery changes

It's important to replace the battery promptly to decrease the risk of potential damage caused by battery leakage. This remains the primary reason why Quartz watches may require servicing. Thanks to this, even top quality Swiss batteries are susceptible to leaking, and cheap quality batteries can even leak while they still have charge remaining. Thus, it's crucial to use professionals who use the best materials to provide quality watch repairs.

Finding the "cheapest" option may save you money in the short term, but it can cost you more down the line. Keep in mind that regular maintenance is crucial for your watch and is a better solution than waiting for potential damage or issues to arise.

We offer a new Premium watch battery option that guarantees a leak-proof battery, so you need not worry about the battery leaking into your watch. Opting in for this option will grant you an extended battery life and delay watch servicing. Remember, in the world we live in, you pay for what you get, so make sure to choose quality over savings.

When it comes to timepieces, there is nothing quite like automatic watches. They operate on a very sophisticated mechanism that does not rely on electric currents to function. Instead, it uses a complex network of mechanical parts that work together to keep the watch ticking accurately. As the wearer walks or moves around, the self-winding rotor in the watch powers it, making it a very efficient and elegant timekeeping device.

Mechanical watches certainly have a unique charm to them, and their intricate workings are a testament to true craftsmanship. However, keeping accurate time is not their strong suit. Most automatic watches have a variation of up to 15 seconds per day, and as such means that the time may need to be adjusted periodically.

Constant adjustments can cause damage over time to the screw-down crown of the watch, which is vital for maintaining water resistance at higher pressures. At times, watches may even lose or gain time significantly throughout the day, making the watch inaccurate. One possible solution to this is to regulate the watch's timekeeping. Instead of going for a full Next watch servicing, this option involves making minor adjustments to the watch's internal workings. This is so that it falls within tolerable bounds. Only regulating the timekeeping means that you can save money on a full strip-down and replacement. Once these adjustments are made, the watch is resealed and then should keep time significantly better.

Frequent use of the same watch can lead to complications caused by wear and tear. Among the typical issues are light scratches and the build-up of dirt between the links, which trap dead skin cells, sweat and other debris. This accumulation of dirt between the links can cause corrosion of the pins, resulting in a weaker bracelet. Fortunately, ultrasonic cleaning offers a simple solution that removes all trapped dirt and restores the watch's shine.

As time goes on, watch bracelets are likely to acquire surface scratches, particularly on the clasp, which is the most visible part of the bracelet. For watches that have two tones and contrasting finishes, scratches and wear can both decrease the contrast of these finishes significantly. This is why a full watch polishing service can be an excellent option for bringing the watch back to its original condition. This service is effective in removing scratches from most surfaces, and helps to renew the two-tone finishes. So, by picking this option, you can transform the look of the watch and make it look brand new.

Next Pressure Test

To ensure that a watch is water-resistant, it is imperative to carry out pressure testing. This process can identify any potential issues that could cause moisture to penetrate the watch. These include worn-out and deteriorated gaskets around the crown, glass, or case back, and poor conditions of the crown or glass. Due to these factors, pressure testing is an essential part of maintaining a watch's integrity underwater.

Additionally, watch owners who frequently swim or engage in water sports should be particularly diligent about pressure testing their timepieces. Failure to do so can result in significant damage and a hefty financial loss. Moisture penetration can easily cause several hundred or even thousands of pounds in damages. Hence, regular pressure testing can be a worthwhile investment to prevent such issues.

Next Watch Cleaning

On a daily basis, watches come into contact with dirt, and debris starts to accumulate, particularly between the links and clasp. Consequently, it is of utmost importance to get your watch cleaned regularly. Regular cleaning not only helps maintain the life of the watch bracelet but also prevents dirt from corroding the pins that hold the bracelet together.

To address this issue effectively, we offer our ultrasonic watch cleaner, a perfect solution for removing all accumulated dirt from your watch. This advanced cleaning method leaves your timepiece shiny as new, and extends its lifespan. Additionally, it greatly reduces the risk of corrosion. With our ultrasonic watch cleaner, you can rest assured that your cherished watch will remain in great condition, retaining its pristine appearance for years to come.

Next Watch Polishing

Watches are meant to be worn, but the inevitable scratches and signs of wear can leave even the most luxurious timepieces looking worn-out. However, there's no need to worry because that's where our expert watch polishing service comes in. With years of experience in both hand and machine polishing techniques, our skilled team of watchmakers can remove the majority of scratches. In doing so, your treasure will be restored to a condition that's as good as new.

When you trust us with your cherished timepiece, we guarantee to give it the attention it truly deserves. Our meticulous polishing process ensures that your watch will come out looking like new again. With our commitment to craftsmanship, you can be confident that your watch is in the best hands possible. So let us take care of your prized possession, and we'll make sure it shines with brilliance every time you wear it.

Next Watch Bracelet Repair

As the age-old adage would have it, "you're only as strong as your weakest link" - a principle that very much applies to the world of watch bracelets. These essential accessories rely on many different types of pins and spring bars to secure your timepiece to your wrist. However, over time, these metal components can weaken and become less effective. To ensure the safety and security of your watch, it's crucial to take regular preventative action and change out these weaker elements before they pose any large problems.

By addressing this issue proactively, you can keep your watch in tip-top shape and maximize its lifespan. Regularly inspecting and replacing worn-out pins and spring bars will prevent unexpected failures. Additionally, it can help to keep your timepiece safely strapped to your wrist. This simple yet vital maintenance step will grant you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your watch is always secure, no matter what the day brings.

Next Glass Replacement

As a watch owner, it's essential to stay vigilant for signs of wear and tear on your timepiece. One such issue that can arise is a cracked or scratched watch glass, which can lead to even more significant problems if left unaddressed. For instance, damaged glass can allow moisture and other unwanted substances into the watch, compromising the mechanism and timekeeping accuracy. Additionally, with extreme wear, small glass shards may land on the watch dial, potentially damaging the watch's internal components. Thus, if you observe any signs of an imperfection on your watch's glass, such as a crack or scratch, we strongly recommend seeking professional help or finding a replacement without delay.
