Our Most Common Repairs for Breitling Watches
Is your Breitling watch having problems? Is it due for its regular maintenance? We can help! At Excel Watch Repair, we handle all the service requirements of Breitling watches. We know how valuable your watch is to you—both from a monetary and sentimental point of view. Here are some of the most common repairs we do for Breitling watches:
We can replace the broken crystal inside your watch with a new one. Crystals come in three materials: acrylic, mineral glass, and synthetic sapphire.
The cheapest material is acrylic, although crystals made from acrylic can be easily scratched. Thankfully, these scratches can be buffed out easily. But if they’re hit hard enough, acrylic crystals can crack. Mineral glass is the most popular option. It won’t scratch as easily as acrylic will, but it can still crack. The hardest—and most expensive—material is synthetic sapphire. It’s used by many manufacturers of luxury watches. Sapphire crystals are very durable, but not completely shatterproof.
Total Watch Overhaul
Like a car, your watch is a sophisticated piece of machinery. As such, it needs regular maintenance to ensure that it’s running properly. We can give your watch a complete overhaul to check it for minor problems, so that they don’t have the chance to develop into major ones down the line.
The movement of your watch is like its beating heart. At Excel Watch Repair, we can professionally oil and clean your movement, as well as take care of any parts that are damaged. If necessary, we can also manufacture parts to replace the originals. If your movement needs to be replaced, we have many movements in stock at our location.
If needed, we can replace your watch battery. After replacing it, we’ll test the water resistance to make sure it’s still working properly.
Stem and Crown Replacement
Replacing the stem and crown of a watch is a delicate operation. Often these parts are very specific to the model of watch. At Excel Watch Repair, we have the experience and expertise necessary to do this correctly.
Clasp and Band Repair
If your watch clasp doesn’t fit your wrist properly, we can adjust it so that it fits better.
We can replace the hands of your watch if they’ve become damaged or fallen off.
If the dial on your Breitling watch has become worn or damaged, we can make it look new again.
Check and Repair Seals and Gaskets
Water-resistant watches need to be regularly checked—usually every two years—to ensure that the seals and gaskets are operating properly. A malfunctioning seal or gasket could lead to water leaking into the watch, causing costly water damage, so this check is very important.
And that concludes our look at the most common repairs we do on Breitling watches. If your Breitling watch needs some attention, please contact us at Excel Watch Repair. We’re here to serve you!
