Watch service centre

The Hausmann & Co. Service Centre is the company’s star operation. Horological expertise has formed part of the Hausmann DNA for over two centuries, representing a factor of strategic value which is guaranteed by the sizeable team of master watchmakers and polishers employed in the workshop, which makes it probably the most famous independent watchmaking workshop in Italy.

We are proud to ensure a state-of-the-art overhaul of a watch, able to make it as good as new. This is because our Service Centre is certified for watch repairs by RolexPatek PhilippeCartierA. Lange & SöhnePaneraiJaeger-LeCoultre, IWCBreguetTudorBlancpain and is authorized by Vacheron ConstantinZenithTag HeuerChanelChopardLonginesF.P. JourneParmigiani FleurierL. LeroyPorsche DesignGiuliano Mazzuoli.

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.

The master watchmakers’ professionalism is guaranteed not only by the centuries-old name Hausmann & Co., but also by the qualifications deriving from the training and development courses regularly attended at the principal watchmaking companies.

The Hausmann & Co. service workshop numbers several institutions among its clients, which have never ceased over the years to place their trust in the watchmakers’ expertise and ability; these include the Office of the President of the Republic of Italy, and the Holy See.

With its considerable watchmaking expertise, Hausmann & Co. harbours the ambitious goal of consolidating and defending the culture of watchcare. This is one of the reasons why the “Diary” section of this website includes suggestions and tips for using mechanical watches, accumulated over the course of years of

手表如果走得过快或过慢怎么办?

7 三月 2017 |

最精准的机械表被称为“精准计时器”,他们凭借其性能拥有COSC(一个检测表类运行质量的瑞士独立单位)的认证。 对于COSC而言,精准的机械表意味着在月底,相对准确时间向前或向后偏差2-3分钟(有关允许的误差值,参见:http://www.cosc.swiss/bienfacture/precision)。 因此必须放弃拥有一块精准的机械表?瑞士单位认为“是”…。但这不是放弃的好理由!事实上好的钟表匠可以改善表的精准性,尤其是通过调整平衡齿轮(其关乎机械的运行节奏)。钟表匠的操作余地取决于表的部件的质量(例如,平衡齿轮的技术特质),但是总可能获得即使不是最佳的结果,而且这无需特别复杂的操作和高昂的花费。 单独而言,如果出现较大的差值,表的慢走(或者,较少见的,快走)可能预示着出现了机械问题。这种情形下,有必要迅速介入以避免忽视可能严重影响表的运行的机械问题。 显然,这些仅限于机械表。石英表因为石英的高频率摆动而具有相当的精准性,类似的慢走和快走都是不可接受的……如果出现相反的情形,意味着你们的表需要更换电池或者,在极端情形下,需要检修机械。

给手动机械表上弦:你的操作是对的吗?

14 十月 2015 |

手动机械表需要精心而持续的照顾才能保证它的连续运转。你的手表在床头柜上等着被你戴上但是…不要立刻把手表戴上手腕!首先要做的是给它上弦并校准,进行这些操作时不能将表戴在手上以免垂直的应力施加在轴上损坏上弦把头精细的直杆。 在进行上弦操作时要牢记以顺时针方向转动把头,不要由前向后转,否则会使上弦的小齿轮的磨损加倍。 手动机械表每24小时上一次弦,对于声明可独立运转48小时甚至更长时间的手表也不例外,因为弹簧释放压力的方式是相同的且前36小时为最佳,超过这段时间它就会显现出不规则运转。每天早上上弦是一条玉律,这样手表能够在外界应力(意外碰撞,突然移动,振动)最强的白天保持充足的动力。建议每天在相同时间上弦,以使施加在机械齿轮系统上的压力保持恒定。 为了保证不损坏上弦的机械结构,转动上弦把头(一般来说大约二十圈)直到感觉到阻力变大,这表明弹簧已经完全上足。这时要马上停下来以防造成断裂!
