This service, unfortunately, is becoming increasingly obsolete, as what we are dealing with here are clocks that have often been abandoned in houses or in a corner, until someone has rescued them with the intention of restarting them, and many times the clocks are well over 60 years old and can reach 100 years old.
In the "thick" watchmaking that they say, the repair consists of several parts, on the one hand, we have the mechanism of the watch itself that must be reviewed, greased and change some items, which as we mentioned before, increasingly costs more find spare parts, and we may even have to make some parts manually.
We also find that part of the work consists of repairing or restoring furniture, hinges or metal components that need to be polished and/or restored. The most common in a repair is to make the chains or weights golden, look like the first day. It is one of the things that the customer is most grateful for, as it greatly impacts the end result compared to how they had come into our hands. Another thing is a restoration of the furniture, but this is no longer so common, although it can be done by experts in antique furniture previously agreeing price/work.
If the watch is very bulky, we also offer the service of picking it up, when the task is finished, the commissioning could be done at the client's home. All revisions are guaranteed for 6 months. In the event that these watches have a quartz machine or batteries, repairs are also carried out, as this is more common lately, since these types of movements are currently used more since they are cheaper ... but not as durable as mechanical ones.
