Servicing And Care

Watch care

Try not to stress your watch, it is a finely tuned machine and a drop from any height could cause damage as could unnecessary temperature extremes and unnecessary wetting. Use common sense to protect your asset. Do you need to wear it in the shower?

Watch servicing

 

Schofield Watch Company manufactures watches of superior quality and robustness. Schofield’s watch collection is over engineered to endure for many decades. This is reflected in the use of extra thick sapphire crystals, screw down case backs, screw in strap bars and large screw in stainless steel buckles. The Soprod, Unitas and ETA movements are also of the highest quality manufactured with strict tolerances and attention to detail. Mechanical movements of any kind need periodic servicing. Please contact us to book a service. We recommend your watch is serviced when there is something wrong with it. We do not advocate periodic servicing, for more information please contact us.
