The main servicing procedure

  • A Complete Service involves the watchmaker checking the watch’s functions, diagnosing the cause of any faults.
  • The complete dismantling of the movement with the correction of any faults and replacement of any damaged / worn parts.
  • All parts are then cleaned in a series of ultrasonic chemical baths which removes all the old oil, grease and dirt.
  • While the movement is being cleaned the case will be completely broken down (case back, bezel, crystal,pushers etc. removed) and, having removed all the seals and gaskets, refinished and cleaned in large ultrasonic tanks.
  • Once the case is clean it is reassembled with new seals and gaskets, which are lubricated as required with special greases. The case is now ready to receive the cleaned movement.
  • The cleaned movement and pristine components are systematically reassembled and lubricated using up to 8 different fine synthetic oils and greases, before having the dial and hands refitted.
  • The watchmaker will now reset the clean movement with the dial and hands mounted into the watch case ensuring there are no hairs or dust in the case and recheck the watch regulation on the timing machine.
  • Once the case is closed the watch is then tested for water resistance and the final aesthetic, timekeeping and power reserve checks are made to ensure the watch is performing correctly.

Battery service

  • The watch is opened and electronic components checked using specific testing equipment.
  • Replacement of the battery and gaskets as appropriate to the watch model.
  • Tested for water resistance. Final aesthetic and timekeeping checks to ensure the watch is performing correctly.

I wanted to say how pleased I am, my Ball watch looks nothing short of  stunning. You were a joy to deal with, it was seamless. Not only that, but you achieved all this in a far shorter time than your original estimate. I would recommend you and your Company without hesitation! 

Mr Beardsell , UK

Thank you to the team for the servicing and refurbishing of my fathers' Omega watch. The accuracy is well within original factory tolerance and refurbishment makes it look as good as new. Thank you also for the tour of your workshops when I collected my watch.

Brief history of Perrelet Watch Service

Ever since its founding, Perrelet has consistently innovated in the field of horology, displaying an audacity firmly rooted in its DNA and its values. The inventor of the self-winding watch almost 250 years ago, Perrelet has faithfully cultivated its pioneering, avant-garde spirit as well as impressive mastery of its timepiece developments. Key values such as rigorous technical standards as well as extreme precision are placed in the service of a vision: that of perpetuating the watchmaking legacy of the brand’s legendary founder, Abraham-Louis Perrelet, as well as his successors such as Louis Frédéric Perrelet.

1728 – Birth of Abraham-Louis Perrelet in Le Locle, a Swiss village in the mountains of Neuchâtel. Fascinated by watchmaking professions, as a teenager he devotes himself to the construction of a certain number of precision instruments.

1777 – From the 1770s onwards, Abraham-Louis Perrelet applies himself to perfecting a system which, from one single initial impulse, would continue to function indefinitely. It was in 1777 that he develops his completely revolutionary invention – the self-winding or automatic movement. To this very day nobody has managed to improve on this to give life to mechanical calibers and his invention continues to make its mark on watchmaking history.

1780 – Abraham-Louis Perrelet develops the first pedometer and becomes the first person to create watches with a cylinder, duplex, calendar, and equation escapements.

1781 – Heir to his grandfather’s watchmaking genius, Louis-Frédéric Perrelet is born in 1781. Demonstrating a predisposition for mechanics and mathematics, he is trained by his grandfather prior to moving to Paris to study in Breguet’s workshops. Thanks to his talent, he rapidly proves his skill as an independent watchmaker.

1823 – His growing interest in astronomy, physics, and science leads Louis-Frédéric Perrelet to design so-called “intelligent” watches. An astronomical clock designed in 1815 and presented at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1823 results in him becoming watchmaker-mechanic to three French kings.

1827 – At the Exhibition of Products of French Industry, he presents a chronograph counter for physics and astronomy with flyback hand. This model, for which a patent is officially registered in March 1828, earns him a medal from the Académie des Sciences in 1830.

1834 – Honorary evidence of the extent of his reputation across Europe, as well as his talent and his perseverance, in addition to multiple gold medals, Louis-Frédéric Perrelet, is given the rank of Knight of the Legion of Honour.

1995 – The House of Perrelet develops, perfects, and produces the first so-called “double rotor” Caliber: a system unique in its kind, which connects the winding weight of the automatic system to a rotor on the dial side.

2009 – Perrelet presents the emblematic Turbine model. Inspired by the so-called “double rotor” movement, the oscillating weight on the dial side is transformed into a propeller which makes a striking impression with its extreme rotating speed.

2012 – Perrelet takes a decisive new step on the path towards autonomy by adopting and equipping most of its timepieces with Caliber P-321, the first Manufacture-made movement entirely developed and produced within its workshops.

2013 – Perrelet presents the Turbine Chrono, thereby demonstrating its creative ability to combine the Turbine effect with a watchmaking complication. That same year, Perrelet also launches his Tourbillon model.

2014 – The Turbine gains height. The company presents the Turbine Pilot: a tribute to the world of aviation which, like its Fine Watchmaking counterpart, is based on a blend of daring and calculation.

2015 – Perrelet celebrates the 20th anniversary of its iconic Double Rotor concept. With the First-Class Double Rotor Skeleton collection, equipped with a Manufacture movement, Caliber P-481.

2019 – The Turbine collection celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2019. To commemorate this important landmark, Perrelet releases the TURBINE EVO with a completely overhauled design and a new in-house movement with the Caliber P-331-MH.
