As is required for state-of-the-art servicing and in order to comply with the standards laid down by the principal brands authorizing repair work on their watches, great attention is paid to the standards of workmanship. The machinery used is in line with the most advanced technological standards: two machines for ultrasonic cleaning (one for the prewash and one for the final one), chronocomparators to test a watch’s rate, instruments for the testing of water-resistance, both under pressure and under water, polishing, lapping and sand blasting machines to restore cases and bracelets to their original splendour, an engraving machine, a gold plating machine and – finally – integrated software for monitoring the entire overhaul process and simplifying communication with clients.
