CW21 Certified Watch Repair

If you are looking to get your watch repaired or serviced, performing a  simple search online will inundate you with hundreds of watchmakers and jewelery stores offering their services. With so many options it is very difficult to know which watchmaker you can entrust to perform quality work on your luxury watch. That is why the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute (AWCI) with the cooperation of some of the leading premium Swiss watch brands (Rolex, Omega and Breitling), have created a series of certifications for watchmakers.

These series of certifications is known as the Certified Watchmaker Twenty-First Century or CW21 for short. In order for a watchmaker to become CW21 certified they must pass a written test involving watch gear calculations and theory in general as it pertains to the watchmaking profession. They also must repair a modern Swiss made automatic, chronograph and quartz watch with all the pertinent adjustments and know how to use a watchmaker’s lathe to perform hand-held graver turning operations. The CW21 certification is the highest and most rigid standard for watchmakers to achieve and maintain, so much so that there are only about 130 fully certified CW21 watchmakers in the United States. That number includes Raymond Lee Jewelers own CW21 certified watchmaker and watch repair specialist!

Our fully certified CW21 watchmaker provides only the most excellent service and is able to maintain this standard of excellence by possessing extraordinary skills and knowledge for servicing luxury watches. As a certified CW21, our watchmaker is c0nsidered to have the highest level of skills applicable in the watch industry. Remember only those who have passed the new CW21 exam can claim such a title. If you are at an other jewelry store and they claim to have CW21 certification and cannot provide proof they likely do not have a real CW21 certified watchmaker. Raymond Lee Jewelers is proud to have a CW21 watchmaker on staff and will always provide proof upon request.

Concord Repair

Concord Repair

Repairing your luxury Swiss watch, such as a Concord, should be treated like caring for your automobile.  Every so often both need to be looked at to ensure they are running properly.  And just like a car there are signals that your Concord sends you telling you it is time for a Concord repair.

If your automatic watch is losing or gaining a couple of seconds per day that is normal.  No automatic watch keeps perfect time in all directions.  However, if you notice it is missing minutes, you may have a serious problem where parts need to be replaced.  In order to ensure this never happens, make sure to have a cleaning every few years.  Make sure the cleaning includes lubricating the movement.  Without proper lubrication an automatic movement cannot run to its full potential and may even rust.

Concord watch repair, like any luxury Swiss watch repair, may seem simple but is actually quite complicated.  When you drop your car off for repair you don’t see what happens while it is in the shop; and same with a watch repair.  It turns out it is quite a complicated process.  First, a certified watchmaker must remove the case from the band disassemble the case.  All parts including the dial, movement, crystal, and tubes and gaskets must be separated.  Once this happens the case and bracelet are polished and cleaned.  Next, the movement itself is taken apart.  The gears and other parts of the movement are checked for damage or rust and replaced if necessary.  Then, the movement is placed in a Greiner Vibrograph ACS 900 cleaning machine.  Once the movement is cleaned it is reassembled and fit together with the dial and case.  If the watch is water resistant the watchmaker must test it with our Witschi Proofmaster M machine.  Once all of this is done the watch will be fully reassembled, including the band and your Concord watch repair is finished.

Ebel Watch Repair

Ebel watch repair should be trusted only to a CW21 watchmaker. At Raymond Lee Jewelers we have on staff a CW21 watchmaker. Sure, you can walk into a jewelry and get a new battery in your Ebel for 2 bucks. Ever wonder what they are doing for 2 bucks? They pop the back off with a knife, remove the battery, replace it and pop the case back on. This could work for you and it could work forever.

What happens if you go swim with your watch or take a shower, better yet get caught in a rain storm? Your Ebel could fill up with water or get condensation under the crystal. This could potentially completely ruin your watch. Ebel watches are expensive. Is it really worth wrecking your watch to save a few bucks getting a cheap while you wait battery job?

When you bring your Ebel watch or other luxury watch to Raymond Lee Jewelers our factory trained watchmaker performs a factory style job. After the battery has been replaced, the case back gasket is replaced to maintain the water resistance of your timepiece. When the job is complete your watch is put on our Witschi Proofmaster M, which test for leaks. This will make sure your watch remains water-resistant.
