In order to keep the lifetime of the watch two principal features should be cared for. 1) Keep your watch sealed 2) Keep the watch lubricated
At Tic Toc Man we recommend your watch be serviced every 2-3 years.
Every 1-2 years any water resistance timepiece should be tested up to the recommended pressure in order to verify if the watch is sealed.
Yes, seals are made from rubber, with age and use they may deteriorate or harden, therefore at any given time the watch becomes not water resistant.
Water-resistance of a watch protects the movement from dust and moisture. Although It is the right of the owner to do how he pleases with his watch, we do strongly advise seals be changed. Even If the watch is not used in water, if dust or perfume moisture infiltrates a watch it may become costly to repair.
Once we are in receipt of the watch we aim to have quotation on movement repairs within 3-5 working days.
Once we have emailed the quotation to you, for each repair completion time may vary in accordance to the type of repair. Below is a guideline of completion time for each type:
Battery replacement – While you wait
Strap replacement – While you wait
Pressure test – While you wait
