What is involved in a Eberhard Watch Service?
The watch is broken down and the movement is removed from the case. The bracelet, case, seals and movement are inspected thoroughly to diagnose any issues. We strip the whole movement and the case components.
Every part inside the watch is inspected for wear and anything showing the slightest sign of deterioration is removed and replaced with new parts from the manufacturer. Tolerances inside watches are so fine that even the smallest defect can affect performance.
Once inspected all parts are then put through our ultrasonic cleaner with specialist fluids, which removed old grease from the parts.
After it goes through the cleaning agent and three rinsing agents, it is put through a drying process resulting in a completely clean movement ready for re-assembly and lubricating.
We assemble the movement and fit the dial and hands assuring everything are aligned and then time test the watch to assure it is performing accurately.
6. PRESSURE TEST
The case is reassembled so it is now a watertight empty case. We then pressure test it to the required bar to ensure there are no leaks.
We then move on to the case and bracelet (if the watch has one) which is cleaned and refurbished. We use various polishing, cutting and grinding wheels to remove any small dents, scratches and imperfections where possible, brining the watch as close to new condition as possible.
8. FINAL TESTING
Watch is reassembled and time tested for the second time and placed on test for 2-3 days on our workshop simulator which slowly moves the watch round in different positions. This allows us to monitor the watches performance and see if any further adjustments are required.
Above and beyond service. JVM really excelled themselves from the neat packaging they send you to put your pride and joy in and send it back. The attention to detail displayed was superb, the watch came back looking like new, the strap, the face looked perfect and added to that they send you the parts they had replaced as part of the service which demonstrates transparency and generates trust. Highly recomended!!
Good old fashioned service. Friendly, quick and personal service that is as accurate as the finest chronometer.
The service was excellent - very efficient and informative answering all my questions. I was somewhat nervous about sending my pride and joy through the post, but they made the whole process very simple and secure. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Your Eberhard watch must always be diagnostically inspected first to produce an accurate repair quotation, this allows the watchmaker to find out exactly what issues need addressed and price any parts accordingly. However most repairs are covered in a full Eberhard watch service price which varies depending on model.
The price is made up of the master watchmaker’s time in servicing the watch (which can take up to 4 hours) and the cost of any parts required to restore performance.
If you are being offered a service for cheaper it would be advisable to proceed with caution. It may be generic parts that are being used in your repair resulting in your watch losing its worth and running into similar problems in the near future.
The old adage holds true for luxury watch ownership, buy cheap, buy twice. Having your watch maintained by an official service centre will ensure your Eberhard watch lasts long into the future and retains its value.
The History of Eberhard
Eberhard and Co boasts a long tradition of making exquisite timepieces with remarkable precision and advanced technology. Being a highly regarded luxury Swiss watchmaking brand, its products adorn the wrists of wealthy clients, from Italian Royal Navy officers to sportsmen alike.
Established in 1887, in La Chaux-de- Fonds by George – Lucien Eberhard, this year celebrates the brand’s 130th anniversary. Since its early days, Eberhard and Co continues to produce watches that stand out for their exceptional quality and traditional style. They are created in tribute to the brand’s remarkable heritage, actively reviving its antique demeanour inspired by classic pocket watches.
The brand is recognised for seeking to bring together comfort and functionality of sportive watches alongside the elegance associated with dress watches.
In 1894 the brand patented an innovative time-setting system for its pocket watches. This early development paved the way for a century of technical innovations, achieved by the company.
1919 proved to be a particularly important year for Eberhard and Co, as it saw the launch of the most advanced wrist chronograph created by the brand’s watchmakers. This reiterated the company’s ambition to never cease pushing boundaries of horological expertise, and set Eberhard and Co on an individualised path in the craft.
In 1935 the company once more proved its vanguard position by producing a wholly unprecedented chronograph which featured two pushbuttons with a stop and start function without reset.
Three years later the brand launches a chronograph with an hour counter, and in 1939 arrived a wrist chronograph equipped with an innovative fly-back device, which enabled dual time keeping. During the years of the Second World War Eberhard and Co was also supplying chronographs to officers of the Italian Royal Navy.
Since 1996, the manufacture has focused primarily on luxury king-size wrist watches, which was soon followed with the launch of a new Grande Taille (Super Size) collection. In 2001, the brand introduced the Chrono 4 chronograph wristwatch. It was remarkable for the fact that it was the very first chronograph to have 4 counters aligned in one row.
Aside from the Chrono 4, the company has designed many other models to answer the specialised needs of sportsmen, as well as drivers. Amongst these is the Extra-Fort watch. An iconic timepiece of the 1940s, It was revived in 2012 with the limited-edition ‘125ème Anniversaire’ anniversary watch with a more contemporary design. It is a skilful blend of technique and class, with timeless charm.
The 8 jours watch is now one of the brands most popular models. It is a classic wristwatch with a historic feel and an easy to read dial. Apart from its appealing appearance, it comes with an impressive 8-day power reserve indicator.
Inspired by contemporary femininity, the Gilda line is a harmonious blend of modern practicality and aesthetic tradition. It features a dial in white mother-of- pearl and eye catching, stylised roman numerals.
Eberhard and Co maintains its honourable status as a vanguard watchmaker of the highest calibre. It stands in league amongst the best watchmaking brands, for its dedication to making exceptional products out of passion for tradition, timeless elegance, and precision.
