Watch manufacturers suggest that watches be cleaned, oiled and serviced every three to five years to ensure that the components are properly lubricated and that the mechanism is free from dust, dirt and moisture.
When a mechanical watch begins to function irregularly, i.e not keeping time or stopping, it is a sign that the
timepiece needs maintenance and the attention of a professional horologist.
When a Quartz watch stops, it could be among many reasons, such as a simple battery change or movement necessities; inner wheels, gears, and/or electronic components may need replacing.
Over time, the lubrication protecting the gears and the wheels of a watch will begin to dry. In addition, water resistant watches have seals and gaskets which will also begin to dry and wear. This allows for moisture to enter, causing the movement to rust and the dial and hands to discolor.
There any many other minor repairs that need to be done, such as crystal replacements, crown replacements, pins, dial changes and case/bracelet adjustment.
