Interview With Patek Philippe Customer Service Team – Teach You How To Be A Family Doctor Who Loves Watches
Over the past ten years, the world’s top watch brands have gradually entered China, and Chinese consumers have become increasingly mature, from simply ‘owning’ a watch to ‘appreciating’ its uniqueness Some tastes and stories, up to the ‘investment and collection’ of its hidden brand value. Therefore, the in-depth knowledge of maintenance and maintenance has become a knowledge that is continuously accumulated and practiced by everyone who loves watches.
For watch enthusiasts or seasoned collectors, finding a watch that makes you love is not easy; therefore, it is important to cherish your watch and check whether it is in the best condition. We may check our bodies every year to understand our physical condition. Similarly, do you know the status of Love Watch?
Watches are just like the human body. There are many visible warnings to remind us to ‘see a doctor’ in time. Patek Philippe’s customer service team recommends that you focus on the four major aspects of power, precision, appearance, and habit, so that you can grasp the principles and steps so that you can perform basic ‘health checks’ for love watches at home. Although it is an old saying that ‘prevention is better than cure’, it can save a lot of unnecessary troubles and burdens.

First of all, after confirming that the watch has not entered the water or suffered any external force, you can try to be a family doctor who loves watch in four aspects:
First, you can check from the most obvious travel time conditions, such as whether the watch is walking normally. For manual winding or automatic winding watches, you can first check if it has been wound on that day. In the case of a battery-powered watch, you can see when the battery was last changed. On average, quartz watches require battery replacement in about 2 to 3 years. If it is an annual or perpetual calendar watch, you can try to observe whether it always stops at a certain point in time. If this happens, it may be caused by insufficient power.
In general, the accuracy of mechanical watches can have an error space of -15 / + 15 seconds every 24 hours. Patek Philippe strictly regulates the travel time error. For watches with a movement diameter greater than 20 mm, the travel time accuracy must be between -3 / + 2 seconds per 24 hours; for watches with a movement diameter less than 20 mm, between 24 hours -5 / + 4 seconds.
View the reference value used for the last set time. Sometimes the watch moves too fast, which may be due to the deviation of the time referenced at the beginning, which then causes a larger error over time. (If the first day is set to 3 seconds, the error will accumulate to 3 minutes after two months).
3. Appearance / Sound:
If the watch makes an unusual sound, it may be the signal it sends to you (for example: when it is wound, a sudden ‘click’ sound) reminds you to let it ‘see a doctor’ in time.
Check to see if you have a habit of winding a watch. In general, if the self-winding watch is left idle for 2 to 3 days, you can wind it first and then check whether it is walking normally.
Some electrical appliances in the home have magnetic fields of different strengths, which may affect the watch to varying degrees. Please be careful not to place the watch near appliances with strong magnetic fields such as iPad, TV, hair dryer and so on.
Complication watches are so fascinating that they combine miniature craftsmanship with artistic aesthetics. In a 30 mm diameter square circle, hundreds of precision parts run in harmony and quietly. To ask how long it takes to self-check for the love watch, Patek Philippe customer service (http://www.patek.com/contents/default/cn/servicecenters.html) suggests that it is better to hold the enthusiasm of playing the love watch at all times, Make yourself the closest person to a watch and the person who knows it best.
