HOW IT'S DONE AT WATCHARTEXCHANGE!
Highest quality Boley lathes and micro tools are used in precision parts repair and restoration.
We utilize Jacot tools which are hand powered lathes that are essential in the repair of vintage movements and antique watches.
These tools are necessary for sizing and restoration of watch pivots.
Pallet Stone Setting Tool used for precision setting of watch pallets and pivot straightener. (A tool that adjusts bent pivots. When a watch has bent pivots time accuracy cannot be maintained.)
When restoration of watch cases is necessary, many complicated factors must be taken under consideration. For example, a case cannot be over polished and must maintain all original contours and edges.
In order to achieve this, proper tools must be implemented together with precision hand detailing. To bring out a high-quality shine only high-speed polishing machines can be used. However, our master polisher always keeps a close eye on the process in order not to damage the delicate watch case and threading on case back.
