At Excel Watch Repair we understand the sentimental value your Swiss Army watch can have. We can help you repair or restore your watch and make it like new again. Here are some of the common repairs we perform on Swiss Army watches:
We can replace the crystal inside your watch with a new one if it’s broken. Watch crystals come in three main materials: sapphire (both natural and synthetic), mineral glass, and acrylic.
Acrylic crystals are less expensive. They scratch easily, and can crack if hit hard enough. The good news is that if the scratches aren’t too severe, it’s easy enough to buff them out. Mineral glass is the most popular material for crystals. Its crystals aren’t as easily scratched, but they can shatter with sufficient impact. Synthetic sapphire is the hardest of the materials. Crystals made from this material are difficult to scratch. Sapphire crystals are expensive, and many luxury watches use them, but they are still not completely shatterproof.
Total Watch Overhaul
Your watch is a sophisticated piece of machinery, much like a car. And just like a car, your watch needs regular maintenance to run at its best. At Excel Watch Repair we can give your watch a complete overhaul and check for minor problems that should be taken care of, before they develop into major and much more costly problems.
Your watch’s movement is like its beating heart. At Excel Watch Repair, we can professionally clean and lubricate your movement, as well as take care of any damaged parts. If needed, we can manufacture parts to replace the originals. If your entire movement needs replacing, we have many movements in stock at our location.
We can replace the battery on your Swiss Army watch. After replacing the battery, we’ll test the watch to ensure that it still meets its water resistance rating.
Stem and Crown Replacement
Replacing the stem and crown of a watch can be difficult, as they’re often specific to that specific model of watch. At Excel Watch Repair we have the expertise and experience that is needed to do this delicate operation correctly.
Band and Clasp Repair
The band of your Swiss Army watch can have its life prolonged with new watch pins or a new clasp. At Excel Watch Repair we can also adjust the fit of the watch band if needed, making it larger or smaller. Your watch band should fit comfortably, and it shouldn’t slide on your wrist. At Excel watch repair we can tailor your band to fit your wrist perfectly.
We can replace the hands of your watch if they have fallen off or become damaged.
If your Swiss Army watch has a dial that is damaged or looks worn, we can restore it at Excel Watch Repair.
Check and Repair Seals and Gaskets
At Excel Watch Repair, we can check the seals and gaskets of your water-resistant Swiss Army watch to make sure they’re working properly. This is important to do every two years, because a malfunctioning seal or gasket could let water into the watch, causing costly damage.
Those are the most common repairs we do for Swiss Army watches! If your Swiss Army watch is in need of attention, please contact us at Excel Watch Repair. We are happy to serve you!
