FAQ About Service
A complete service on an automatic watch takes an average of 3 months. You leave the watch with us for an assessment of the type of service that needs to be performed. We will provide a cost proposal and begin the repair only after you approve the cost proposal.
We can provide an exact price for the service only after we have examined the watch. An approximate price for servicing an analog automatic watch is 3000 to 5000 SEK.

When replacing the battery, we perform thorough work, including battery replacement, cleaning of the glass, case, and case back, gasket service, and water-resistance service. The cost of a battery replacement ranges between 450 SEK and 950 SEK, depending on the brand and type of case closure. We replace the battery on-site in the store, and it usually takes 1 to 3 business days.
If you have a battery-powered quartz watch, it's usually because the watch needs a battery replacement. A new battery typically lasts about two years, but the older the watch is, the more often the battery might need to be changed. If the watch is over 10 years old, a movement replacement might also be necessary as quartz watches have a lifespan ranging from 10 to 25 years, depending on the quality of the movement and the watch's maintenance.
If you have a manual or automatic watch that has stopped and it's not possible to wind the watch using the crown, a repair or service is likely needed.
