WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT THAT MY UNION GLASHÜTTE WATCH IS SERVICED REGULARLY?
Unlike many other mechanical instruments, your watch works non-stop, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. To ensure constant accuracy, the individual components in the movement must be well-oiled and spotlessly clean. The quality of the oil degrades with time, causing slight friction and deposits which can have a negative effect on the accuracy of your watch.
Therefore, Union Glashütte recommends having your watch serviced regularly, every four to five years, so that the oil and worn components can be cleaned and replaced. To ensure that the work meets our quality standards, it is important that the maintenance service is performed by a watchmaker certified by Union Glashütte.
