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 & SöhnePaneraiBreguetTudorBlancpain and is authorized by Vacheron ConstantinJaeger-LeCoultre, IWCZenithTag 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

自动机械表的正确上弦方式:怎样正确操作以及怎样保证上满弦!

3 一月 2015 |

  关于自动上弦的关键问题:一只自动机械表必须戴多长时间才能保持其持续的正常运转?显然这并不只是由配戴时间决定的,这同时也与手腕进行的物理活动类型有关,而且不同的钟表公司选择的设计显然也会产生不同的结果。 一些极端和明显的情况下(病人或从事极为静态的工作的人),手表会在意想不到的时候慢慢停下来,甚至是在此人活动最多的时候停下来。自动上弦非常高效的手表也有可能在一系列活动(例如:正常的工作日- 夜晚 - 在高速公路上开车七个小时 - 在海滩上休息放松直到日落 - 夜晚)之后意外停止。 上述情况的解决办法是手动为自动机械表上弦,虽然有点无奈,但却是行之有效的方法! 但是注意:在自动机械表停止时进行手动上弦是必要的,但这样做只是为手表在最初的几个小时里提供足够的能量保持正常运转从而防止不愉快的意外发生。只要将把头轻轻地稍转数圈就够了,剩下的让摆陀在白天去完成上满弦的工作。 这里讲到手动上弦的操作要轻,因为自动机械和手动机械不同,它的把头只在必要时使用。在手动机械表里,用于上弦的小齿轮尺寸较大,可承受驱动的压力每24小时在其上重施一次,而在自动机械表里,尤其是在超薄型的手表里,这个部分更加精细脆弱,因此对把头施力过强很容易将小齿轮损坏。

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!
