Specialized TAG Heuer and Omega Watch Repair and Restoration Available for Vintage Models at WatchRepairNY.com

WatchRepairNY.com is showcasing its expertise in vintage timepiece restoration, including Omega and Breitling watch repair.

New York, NY, December 31, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Manhattan Time Service is encouraging owners of vintage timepieces to invest in the company's specialized Omega, TAG Heuer, and Rolex watch repair services, available online at http://www.WatchRepairNY.com. An asset for watch owners looking to breathe new life into old mechanical pieces, Manhattan Time Service's repair offerings include six-month warranties for all vintage pieces.

"Predating the quartz revolution of the 1960s and '70s, vintage mechanical timepieces are known for their character and old-fashioned craftsmanship. Often serving as treasured family heirlooms, these pieces have only increased in value as mass-produced quartz models have become the norm and many watchmakers have consolidated to use the same internal parts," said Manhattan Time Service's founder Mitchell Lodowski, a Master Watchmaker well versed in Rolex, TAG Heuer, and Breitling watch repair.

WatchRepairNY.com's comprehensive repair services begin with a complete disassembly of the timepiece's movement, an essential component to proper cleaning, lubrication, calibration, and replacement. This is the industry-preferred procedure over ultrasonic cleaning without disassembly, known as "watch breaking" for its likeliness to destroy a vintage timepiece. After reassembly, the watch technician will replace parts as necessary, including the mainspring, balance staff, jewels, stem, crown, watch crystal and back gasket. All existing parts are cleaned by Manhattan Time Service's computer-operated machinery.

During Rolex and Omega watch repair reassembly, the watch technician will lubricate the internal parts as needed, adhering closely to the manufacturer's specifications of oil type, quantity, and application. The timepiece will then be calibrated using a computerized timer and tested for accuracy of timing and reassembly with an automatic winder set to simulate a four-day wear period.

Manhattan Time Service has been recognized for its Rolex watch repair in particular by the users of Rolex Forums, in posts such as http://www.RolexForums.com/showthread.php?p=1716447 and http://www.RolexForums.com/showthread.php?t=115722. The company specializes in the repair of Rolex bubblebacks, and its industry collections make it possible to access hard-to-find, original parts from Rolex and other brands of Swiss-, German-, and American-made watches.

Aside from cleaning and watch replacement, many Breitling and TAG Heuer watch repair clients invest in dial refinishing to revitalize the appearances of their timepieces. Vintage watch dials typically crack, rust, or yellow over time, a process which cannot be remedied without removing the manufacturer's original lacquer coating and print. In dial refinishing, the watchmaker strips the dial down to its brass and begins anew by painting or plating the dial, printing on the details, and replicating raised number or marker spaces through various industry methods.

"Dial refinishing is similar to stripping a vintage car and repainting it. By researching the manufacturer's dial design, our Rolex and Longines watch repair technicians are able to replicate it almost exactly, enabling wearers to enjoy a timepiece's original look without any signs of age," said advanced level watchmaker Thomas Lodowski, one of Mitchell's sons in the business.

Also offering gold, silver, and rhodium case plating; laser case repair; and hand-, machine-, and laser-engraving, Manhattan Time Service can be found online at http://www.WatchRepairNY.com or contacted by phone at 866-969-9069.
