What should you do if you need your watch repaired?

Let's take a look at some of the steps you can take if you need your watch repaired.

Watch repair store

A watch repair store can help fix your watch if it's been damaged. That said, it's important to find a watch repair shop that fixes your specific watch. For example, you likely won't be able to take get an Apple Watch screen repair done at a place that specializes in Rolex watch repair, and vice versa. You want to go to a place that has all the watch repair tools necessary to fix your specific watch. Simply search "watch repair near me" to find the closest repair shop.

Depending on the type of watch you have and the extent of damage, watch repair can be expensive. For example, if you have a vintage watch that is older and hard to find, it can be in the thousands to fix.

Check your warranty coverage

An extended warranty can help reduce the cost of repair for your watch, and can do the same for replacements. If you have an Apple Watch, Apple offers AppleCare+ for its products, which will help with repair costs significantly. For example if you don't have AppleCare+, the cost to repair damage to an Apple Watch Ultra can be as much as $499, compared to just $79 if you have an AppleCare+ plan.

Many watches also come with manufacturer warranties, which cover issues with defects, production, mechanical problems, and more. These are often more limited in scope than extended warranties, and only last for a fraction of the time period, so it's important to always know where your coverage stands.

Keep up with maintenance service

Mechanical watches especially need to be serviced four or five years. Parts of the watch can wear down over time, and preemptively getting those looked at and replaced if necessary can help tremendously in extending the life of your watch. It can also help bring down future repair costs, as keeping up with maintenance means there won't be as much to repair later down the road.
