A certified watchmaker is the only person you want to work on your watch. The watchmakers that have been trained by specific companies to work on those watches have been trained to use specific oils and have specific tools to open and close the cases of the watches. The “Art of Oiling” is complex to describe and understand but it encompasses using the exact, right amount of oil in specific areas to lubricate those gears and parts exactly so the performance is not hindered. If oiling is not sufficient then the performance of the watch is compromised. The lubrication process should allow a 5 year period between servicings. Some watchmakers use generic oils and the customer’s watch will not perform well after a few years or sometimes less. That comment is pending no abnormal physical abuse which can also affect the watches performance.
