    PRS-6 Service

    A service has just been completed on my PRS-6. You might be interested in what is involved.

    That's what's involved with servicing a watch, all taken to pieces then all put back again.

    I sent my Tutima flieger chronograph there around this time last year. They did a great job and Id happily use them again.

    The bits that are too tricky to photograph are the interesting bits! Trueing up and correcting hairspring faults is a good example. Watches are simple machines, its the small scale that causes difficulty.

    The most useful tool I possess is the digital camera, taking pictures during stripdown makes life much easier when building a movement back up. This is particularly true for day/date mechanisms and chronographs. I have an extensive library of pictures on the computer covering most commonly encountered movements, taking pics at each stage is time- consuming but its time well- spent.

    And now back in the fold.






    The service was 50% more than the watch cost new.

    What Eddie used to be able to charge for a Swiss watch is incredible.
