It is recommended by the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH that mechanical watches are cleaned and serviced every three years to ensure accurate time keeping. A Quartz watch has moving parts which also require regular maintenance.

What happens during a service?

During a full service your watch will be completely stripped and all components cleaned, and worn parts replaced on an exchange basis. The components are then re-assembled, lubricated and all functions tested, regulated and sealed back into the ultrasonically cleaned case. Testing takes place over a 5 day period where timekeeping and power reserves are tested.

How can I get my prestige timepiece repaired?

Simply take your item to your nearest Ernest Jones branch, and our staff will give you a verbal estimate and an approximation of when the repair will be complete. If the watchmaker, after examining the movement, decides more work is needed a further estimate will be sent to you.

All Ernest Jones stores have a dedicated Atelier watch technician either onsite or within the local area.

Jewellery restoration - Ernest Jones - Love & life

It is important that your cultured pearls are given extra special care to ensure their beauty, as they are softer than other gemstones and precious metals. Clean diamonds shine the brightest, as they allow the maximum amount of light to enter the diamond resulting in breathtaking brilliance. If possible, remove gold jewellery before washing up, bathing or showering, as soap can cause gold to appear dull.

Once we have discussed your options and you have designed your jewellery, Atelier designers will transform your ideas into a workable design for your approval.
