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

潜水员手表:有效地保护你的手表不进水!

5 四月 2017 |

  请记住能够定义为“潜水员”的手表仅限于能在超过10巴的压力/100米的深度下保证防水性的手表……下面给出了一系列关于使手表免遭进水造成的损坏的最佳保存方法的建议: 上弦把头是一只防水手表最脆弱的一个部分。采用螺旋式把头的手表具备最佳防水能力。记住要一直将把头关好!  用于秒表功能的按钮和把头一样,只有采用螺旋式关口才是防水的。在任何情况下,都不能在过于潮湿的环境或水中使用秒表功能,以避免进水。 乱流和水流的冲击带来的压力超过3巴,因此会对手表产生一个强大的应力。防水性能为30米的手表可能会被损坏。 在洗热水浴、桑拿或土耳其浴时不要配戴手表,因为高温会对手表的密封圈造成无法修复的损害。  保护手表避免其在海水或咸水游泳池中使用相关的风险。用大量淡水清洗手表(把头一定要关好!)以防止化学物质侵蚀而损坏密封圈以及形成咸水垢而对可转动的部件的运动产生阻碍。 每年在夏季来临前或在需要经常在水中使用手表之前做一次防水性测试。事实上手表的防水性能如何取决于它在最近的分析测试中所表现的质量以及它的密封圈所保持的状态。密封圈的保质期不是无限的,根据其材料、功能使用程度和受保养程度的不同表现出不同的使用寿命。 最后请注意:在手动机械表家族中有一部分手表是极轻巧且昂贵的超薄型,它们对夏季的潮湿度的承受力较差。它们的表盒通常没有密封圈的保护,手腕上的汗水就可能进入表盒,其后果是需要对表盒里的机械进行精细且昂贵的修复。 幸运地,当发生隐藏性进水时,手表可以发出警告信号。如果你看到表盘玻璃蒙上了一层水汽,这就是表内进水的信号,可能只是极少量的水,但仍然是危险的。需要马上求助于经授权的钟表师进行处理!

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。
