WHAT IS A MECHANICAL WIND UP WATCH MOVEMENT?
Mechanical watches, also known as “hand-wound” or “manual” watches, are heralded classics and the oldest type of watch movement ever made. Mechanical Wind Up Watch Movements do not utilize a battery nor rotor in its movement for the watch movement to run.
Manual Watch Movements power the watch from a tightly wound spring, or the “mainspring.” This watch spring collects, regulates, and releases energy and tension transferred through its springs and gears. With all these components making up the gear train, this is what keeps the movement of the watch moving, but also requires the watch wearer to manually wind them either by hand or with specific tools.
Mechanical Watch Movements are found in very expensive, antique, and collectible watches. Besides the glorious fashion statements of these pieces, these types of mechanical watches are for those who have a passionate interest in the micro-mechanics of the watch movement itself.
Manual Winding Watch Repair Services
There are several things to consider about when sending in your mechanical watch to be serviced: if you watch is on time, the age of your watch, and the last time you had your watch serviced. Over a certain period of time, your watch needs to have a complete disassembly and overhaul to give your mechanical watch the proper care that it needs. Cleaning and lubrication is necessary and key for having your watch is operating accurately.
What is the difference between a Manual Wind Up and Automatic Mechanical Watch Movement?
One of the key differences between Mechanical Wind Up (Manual) Watches and Automatic (Kinetic) Mechanical Watches is that Automatic Watches are known to be self-winding. Automatic Watches are self-winding due to having a type of rotor that keeps the mainspring moving, which allows the movement itself to keep running with the wrist movement of the watch wearer. The presence of this rotor also tends to make the watch itself heavier. To learn more about this concept look into the Types of Watch Movements.
NOT SURE WHAT WATCH SERVICE YOU NEED?
Not only are Watch Movement Repair Services required after a prolonged period of time after its last service, Watch Movement Repair Services are also mostly likely required after needing Watch Crystal Replacements as tiny glass particles from a cracked Watch Crystal may fall into the many moving parts and gears within the Watch Movement.
There are other Watch Movement Repair Services that include the other types of movements such as:

I feel like I have found a treasure
“Searched All Over Russia/Ukraine for the Parts Needed”
They did a beautiful job on the exterior cleaning and polish
About three weeks later I received a email stating that my watch had shipped, they provide a tracking number that I might keep a track of it, upon receiving the watch I inspected it and have to say that they did a beautiful job on the exterior cleaning and polish plus they replaced the clasp, I can only assume that the work done to the movement is of equal quality and detail this will be born out over time as I see how the accuracy is.
They also provided the pressure test ticket in the return package.
I would recommend this company if you have need of jewelry repair.
