Just like cars and motorcycles, mechanical watches also need to be checked regularly.
If there is any mistakes that happen to overhaul, it will mess the watch up.
This is why GMT choose the best craftsman and equipments to check our watches.
Polishing is one of the important steps during repairing process. Without experiences, the only way to polish the watch case, is to scrub the case and make it thinner. However, this will damage the watch as well. At GMT, we use special polishing service to polish every watch. This will not make the watch case thinner, but make it looks like new ones.
At GMT, the repairing process will not be done by doing only overhaul. After casing the watch, we will try the movement many times with different angles. Waterproof testing,
Precision testing, etc. will also be checked. And the watch will send back to GMT in a perfect condition.
