Watch Maintenance

No matter how many timepieces you have or what they’re worth, there are a few simple things you can do at home to keep all of your watches in good shape.

Have a lot of watches? If you pull the stem out slightly, the watch will stop running and prolong the life of the battery.

If you have a watch that isn’t working and you suspect the battery may be dead, do not delay in getting it changed. An old dead battery can leak and corrode the inside of any watch, regardless of how good the watch is. This can happen to any watch at any time.

If you don’t want to put a new battery in, you should still have the old one removed to prevent corrosion. Make sure you save the old battery or write the battery number down in a safe place for when you do want to put a new one back into your watch.

Design One Jewelers no longer does watch repairs, other than batteries.  We can, however, recommend several locations to use if the need arises.
