Surface scratches and light wear consummate wiith age and use.As watches often have very fine and complex mechanisms, a general service, change of battery or further repair work may be necessary, for which you are responsible. We provide 1 year year internal warranty.Most wristwatches have been opened to find our the type and quality of movement. For that reason, wristwatches with water resistant cases may not be waterproof and we recommend you have them checked by a competent watchmaker before use.Due to our policy of not selling endangered or exotic wildlife leather if the original strap was exotic leather it has been omitted from the sale and a calfskin leather non branded alternative has been fitted. Should the purchaser wish to obtain an original brand strap this can sometimes be purchased from the brand store after the sale and is not the responsibility of the seller.

Vintage watches are more fragile than new timepieces. Some vintage metal bracelet watches have hollow links instead of solid links, making them much lighter in weight and a more susceptible to scratching or dents if hit against a surface.Vintage timepieces may be slightly less accurate than modern watches. You should expect your vintage watch to keep time to within a minute or three per day, its performance won’t be perfect.If it is a self-winding (automatic) watch, it only needs to be wound if it has stopped completely. If it is a hand-winding watch, you can wind it even if it is still running. However, in every instance, stop winding as soon as you feel resistance in the crown. Don’t try to eke a last turn out of it, since you could overwind the mainspring and cause damage.Vintage watches were not created with the same attention to water resistance as watches today are. Decades ago, people took their watches off before going in the water, and this is the mindset you need to have with your vintage watch.If you are planning a strenuous activity, leave your vintage watch at home. Just as they were not as water resistant as today’s watches, many vintage timepieces are delicate and cannot withstand as much shock as today’s stronger pieces.Have the vintage watch serviced every two or three years to ensure clean, new oils are added to the movement.
