Regular Maintenance

To ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your luxury watch, committing to a schedule of professional maintenance every 3 to 5 years is crucial. This routine care allows experts to meticulously examine and address any potential issues before they escalate, from lubricating moving parts to replacing worn components. Such preventative measures not only uphold the watch's precision and reliability but also play a significant role in retaining its value over time. Remember, a well-maintained timepiece is a timeless investment, reflecting both personal taste and legacy. Our team of experts at Wilson & Son Jewelers is more than prepared to take such care of your cherished pieces with the utmost respect for these incredible works of horology.

Mindful Wearing

Wearing your luxury timepiece with awareness is key to preserving its beauty and function. Consider the activities you engage in and the environments you enter. Extreme conditions, such as high temperatures, direct sunlight, and exposure to chemicals, can detrimentally affect the watch's mechanism and finish. By being mindful of these factors, you not only protect your investment but also ensure that its elegance and performance endure, making it a piece that can be proudly passed down through generations.

Clean With Care

Keeping your fine timepiece clean is essential for both its appearance and longevity. A gentle wipe with a soft, lint-free cloth after each use can remove oils and dust that accumulate on the surface. For a deeper clean, especially for water-resistant models, a slightly damp cloth can be used, carefully avoiding the leather straps to prevent damage. This simple yet effective routine helps maintain the watch's luster and prevents build-up that could potentially compromise its function and aesthetic appeal over time.

Secure Storage

Proper storage is vital for preserving the condition of your luxury watch when it's not adorning your wrist. A dedicated watch box or a soft pouch provides a safe haven, protecting it from scratches, dust, and environmental damage. Such measures ensure the timepiece remains in pristine condition, safeguarding its aesthetic and mechanical integrity. Additionally, storing your watch in a controlled environment prevents exposure to harmful conditions, thus maintaining its value and ensuring its legacy can be cherished for years to come.

Documentation and Provenance

Maintaining a comprehensive record of your luxury watch's history is indispensable for preserving its value. This includes safely storing all purchase receipts, warranty cards, and records of servicing. Such meticulous documentation not only authenticates your timepiece but also enriches its story, making it more appealing to collectors and enthusiasts. A well-documented watch not only stands as a testament to your stewardship but also enhances its desirability and market value, securing its status as a sought-after heirloom.
