The importance of servicing your timepiece is a topic many know little about. Questions like “how often do I have to service my timepiece?” or “why should I even service my timepiece?” arise on a daily basis amongst amateurs and even watch lovers. It would be a shame if something happened to your beloved timepiece due to your laziness, no?
So, to give you all an educational background to the world of watch servicing, I teamed up with the Swiss Watch Service, the Middle East’s largest and most comprehensive customer care center for timepieces, with the help of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons.
I recently interviewed Laith Ali Kadhum from Swiss Watch Services by Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, to understand more about the importance of servicing your timepiece.
