Prevention Is Better Than Cure
To ensure the highest quality of work, we maintain strict standards when performing premium battery reseals. These standards include the following procedures:
First, we dismantle the bracelet from the watch head by removing the spring bars. Following this, the bracelet is submerged into an ultrasonic cleaning tank, where dirt trapped between the links is removed, and any bacteria is killed.
Next, we clean the case back to remove any dirt trapped between the grooves. Leaving dirt inside the watch can cause blockages or damage to the mechanism if left unattended.
Once the watch is opened, we remove the gasket and thoroughly clean where the gasket sits and around all edges of the watch casing and the internal watch mechanism. This meticulous cleaning ensures that no dirt or dust will cause damage to the internal mechanism.
We inspect the gasket closely for any imperfections. If necessary, we replace the gasket to ensure correct sealing.
The gasket is then coated in special watchmaker’s silicone grease and fitted back into its position. The silicone grease provides a protective barrier to prevent any contamination from entering the watch.
Next, we carefully remove the old battery and inspect it for any leakage of acid into watches. We clean any acid left behind from the old battery and remove any crystallised acid to prevent it from clogging the watch's movement.
A new premium battery is then fitted and the movement is inspected and cleaned before securing the case-back.
The watch goes through a pressure to ensure the watch is resealed correctly and back to manufacturer standards.
We then clean the head of the watch and bracelet thoroughly with the ultrasonic cleaner and by hand.
Finally, we check the spring bars and replace them if necessary before reassembling the watch.
