Top Rated Bracelet Repair Specialists - Safety First For Your Watch
Sport or Dress's timepieces need to be securely hugging your wrist.
Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, and all high-end luxury Swiss timepieces need to have strong bracelets holding to your wrist.
Not only for comfort while wearing it. You need to move, live and play knowing that it will not get lost.
The bracelet of a watch is professionally designed to comfortably fit your wrist, move along with your arm, and in that way wind the movement. It complements the design of the head of the watch and many times it improves the overall look of the timepiece.
There are almost as many bracelets as there are watches. Every manufacturer has its own design and tries to create a special image that will attract its niche customers.
Sometimes they are just gorgeous, other times very attractive, many times just go unnoticed but the most important aspect of a bracelet is that it should make wearing your watch comfortable, safe and provide peace of mind to the bearer.
It does not matter how good the bracelet looks if it is not protecting the watch you own and by that we mean, that it does not open while wearing it, or that the links are strong enough not to break.
Your watch, like any mechanical instrument, needs to be serviced and taken care of every so often, even more, if you do not wear the watch frequently or if you use it every single day and night.
Most high-end watch manufacturers like Patek Philippe, Rolex, Breguet, Vacheron Constantin, and many others recommend that you service, lubricate and clean the mechanical movement of your timepiece every 4 to 5 years to keep it working in perfect shape, lubricated and clean to avoid damaging the many parts that work together in perfect symphony keeping accurate time.
And you should not overlook the bracelet while you are servicing your timepiece. You can polish and detail the band and the head of the watch, and you have to especially pay attention to the top links, the individual links, and the buckle. If a watch is over 20 years old, if you have worn it every day or if you have played sports while using it, chances are that your links are stretched and your head links and buckle could have been damaged.
It is very important that you check the condition of the bracelet often and make sure it is safe to wear it. We have had one too many cases of watches coming for repair after they are drop from the wrist, even some that were run over by a car after falling to the floor.
An inspection by one of our Swiss-trained, very qualified watchmakers will give you the best advice in regards to how to handle the repair, protect your watch, and keep it looking brand new.
