Caring For Your Watch

Taking care of your luxury watch involves much more than wiping the lens of your timepiece with a cloth. Your watch is a carefully crafted instrument that needs to be cared for and maintained regularly. Automatic watches that rely on a self-winding movement, if not worn can soon power down. Just like a manual winding watch (which requires you to turn the crown until it resists) an automatic watch requires at least 20 winds of the crown or can be stored in a watch winder that mechanically rotates your watch when you aren’t wearing it.

Quartz-powered watches require a battery replacement every 2-3 years. Our on-site specialist watch technicians can carry out a simple battery replacement for you here in our Ashbourne-based watch repair worship in Derbyshire. You can call a member of our team today on 01335 453453 who can guide you through our services and book your watch in for a battery replacement and reseal at a time that conveniences you.

To preserve the quality of your leather watch strap, we advise resisting regular exposure to water, chemicals, sunlight and cosmetics. If you need a new strap or metal bracelet for your watch, you can shop our extensive range of premium watch straps manufactured by official watch brands from all over the world. If you can’t see the watch strap you require, our strap finder form is a simple, hassle-free process that enables us to configure the perfect strap for your watch by sourcing a direct like-for-like replacement from an official watch manufacturer or find a generic leather band or metal bracelet that fits the correct lug width for your watch. We also offer a seamless watch strap replacement and strap refurbishment service here at our in-house watch repair store.

To keep your watch safe and protected from the knocks, bumps and scratching sustained whilst travelling or on the go, we advise you to keep your wristwatch in the presentation box it comes supplied with upon purchase.

As with every special investment, your luxury watch will require regular servicing. You can enquire via email, phone call or our live chat facility to book a watch repair or watch service with us today, or pop into store to discuss your requirements with a professional member of our team.

When you bring your watch into our store for a repair, a service or a clean, we promise an unbeatable and highly professional service here at C W Sellors. If your watch needs to be sent to its official manufacturer for work to be carried out, our watch team will endeavour to work closely with the brand to bring you regular updates on the status of your watch service or repair.

It is never recommended you attempt to remove the back or front of your watch to carry out a clean or service yourself. Our fully trained watch repairers and technicians can offer you full guidance and expertise on the level of work required for your watch, ensuring it is treated with the care and attention it deserves.
