How often do Swiss watches need servicing?


The rules are that Swiss watches need servicing every 3-5 years (depending on the manufacturer). However, the practice of Frezer House indicates that it is better to order repassage of Swiss watches as needed.

  • uneven running

  • watches run down faster than one day/night

  • watches began coming to a stop

Most problems usually arise because of the grease thickening. If you apply for the Swiss watches servicing in a timely manner, you will get your watch back in the perfect condition.

Before these signs appear, repassage is not needed.
