The Best Watch Repair in Orange County
No matter what type of watch you wear on your wrist, your watch will eventually need to be serviced or repaired. This list will help ensure you’re taking your timepiece to the best watch repair in Orange County. Watch & Wares offers affordable watch repair options from basic maintenance to high-end watch servicing.
We’ve always had a reputation as the best place to buy a pre-owned watch in Southern California. Throughout the last 30 years, we’ve also serviced & repaired thousands of customers’ watches in Orange County. Because we’re a full-service watch service, we handle everything from simple watch battery changes and link removal to gasket testing and full timepiece overhauls.
Basic Service & Watch Repair in Orange County
Basic watch repair is one of the services we offer at Watch & Wares. Whether you need watch battery replacement, or your watch is too loose or tight on your wrist, we’ll take care of you. From replacing batteries on a quartz watch to troubleshooting your movement, Watch & Wares has spent 30 years returning watches to their OEM specs.
We replace watch batteries while you wait or take advantage of the shopping & dining in Old Towne Orange. We take great care to ensure that your quartz watch is watertight and secure before returning it to you. Some watches use just one battery, while others may employ 2 to 4 in order to function properly. We stock the most widely-used watch batteries and don’t charge an arm and a leg for them. It’s important for us at Watch & Wares to acquire and retain customers in the long-term, so expect zero hassles and fast turnaround on your basic watch repair needs.
Watch Polishing & Watch Detailing Services
Watch & Wares knows what it feels like when you spend a small fortune on a timepiece. Over time (pun intended), the watch may develop some light surface scratches on the stainless steel or gold links. All watches may dull, but they can be brought back to its original luster with our watch polishing services.
We’ve seen watches with one or two deep scratches, either on the links or bezel, and others with your everyday desk-diving marks on them. Our Orange County watch repair will take the utmost care with each watch we’re trusted to clean and detail. Our turnaround time for watch cleaning and detailing services can vary depending on the number of scratches, so either call us or send us some photos of your watch using our handy submission form.
Watch Gasket Repair & Water / Moisture Testing
Watch gaskets are also referred to as Watch O-Rings. When you buy a new watch, these gaskets should be greased and provide an airtight seal that keeps moisture out. Over time and with daily wear, a watch’s gasket(s) may wear or dry out. Once a watch gasket dries out, they will need to be replaced.
We use only the finest watchmaker’s silicone sealant and OEM-grade watch gaskets. Throughout the last four decades and thousands of watch gasket replacements and repairs, we’ve become the go-to place for watch gasket replacement for watch fanatics who cherish their timepieces.
Watch Movement Cleaning and Full Watch Overhauls
Watch & Wares services everything from high-end timepieces to vintage clocks and antique pocket watches. Because using aftermarket parts can affect the value of your watch, we use OEM watch parts whenever available. In the even that OEM watch parts are not available, we’ll contact you FIRST, in order to make sure you’re okay with using an aftermarket part.
We perform in-depth watch cleaning and full watch overhauls at Watch & Wares. If you feel your watch’s movement is making your watch run a bit slower or like it isn’t running like it used to, bring it in! Our Master Watchmaker will be able to look at your watch movement in-depth and determine if there are any issues or build-up that’s affecting the way your watch keeps time.
Our watchmaker has been repairing watches for over 40 years. Because of this, Watch & Wares has become synonymous with watch repair in Orange County. Have a question about what might be wrong with your watch? Give us a call and give us the symptoms. We’ll probably have you bring the watch in simply to ensure we’re diagnosing the problem correctly, but unlike other jewelers that offer watch repair in Orange County, we’ll get it right the first time!
