Types of Watch Movements Repair Services

There are many types of watch movement mechanisms, and we have built out our teams, environments, and processes to handle them.

Manual Winding Movement Services

Mechanical watches (hand-wound movements) are heralded classics, the oldest type of watch movement ever made. Manual winding movements, unlike quartz, are powered by winding a spring inside the movement. No battery necessary. The watch spring releases energy as it unwinds that is then transferred through the rest of the watch.

Automatic Movement Services

Automatic watches wind themselves while worn on the wrist. The one drawback is that if you don’t wear an automatic watch for a prolonged period of time, the watch might need servicing.

Quartz Movement Services

Quartz movements are battery-powered. No winding is ever required, even if you don’t wear the watch for some time. Quartz watches are also more accurate in comparison to mechanical timepieces. Typically, quartz movement batteries will last between 12 to 24 months.

Commonly Asked Watch Repair Questions:


How Does This Watch Movement Repair Service Work?

The Watch Movement Repair Service depends on the type of watch movement that your watch has. Watches need to be serviced on a regular basis, just like a car would. All you would need to do is send in your living heirloom of a watch and we make sure it gets the proper care, like lubrication and complete disassembling to prevent wear and tear.

How it Works

Print your shipping label and order slip. Choose your insurance, pack your repair(s). My Jewelry Repair provides step-by-step instructions for safe packaging and travel. All you have to do from there is schedule USPS courier pickup if you don’t want to leave your home, or drop-off (with your nearest USPS location). Tracking included for safe arrival and transparency.


How Can I Tell What Type of Watch Movement I Have?

There are several giveaways to identify what type of Watch Movement that your watch has. One of the easiest ways is to check the text on the back of the case or on the dial; what you can look for is the caliber number engraved within this text. You can either identify the type of movement by the knowledge of how often you wind your watch, or observing the actual movement of the watch hands.

If you have trouble identifying the type of watch you have and need it serviced, our Certified Watchmakers will be able to do that for you with no problem.


Does My Watch Movement Type Need To Be Serviced?
It is recommended that your watch should be serviced every three to five years, also depending on the type of watch that you have. If you hear rattling when you lightly shake it or the timing of the movement is slightly off, these may be signs to get your watch serviced.

How Much Does Watch Movement Repair Cost?
It all depends on what your watch needs. A Battery Replacement by itself is pretty simple. However something like a crystal replacement can get a little complicated depending if it’s cracked, or shattered and glass fragments have damaged the movement. The chart below gives some insight to the most common types of watch repair services.

“Searched All Over Russia/Ukraine for the Parts Needed”

This particular work order took over a year to fully complete, with the watch being sent back three times for all the work to be done properly. I do understand that this was harder project given that it’s a vintage Russian movement, but I can’t tell you enough how much

They did a beautiful job on the exterior cleaning and polish

Sent my automatic watch to these folks for repair as it was no longer keeping accurate time, they assessed the watch for needed repairs and sent me the estimate which I approved. About three weeks later I received a email stating that my watch had shipped, they provide a tracking
