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。

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。
