Quartz Movement Replacement

Time marches on, and even the most reliable quartz watch movement can eventually falter. At Sangamon Watches, we offer comprehensive quartz movement replacement services to restore your timepiece to perfect functionality.

Understanding Quartz Movements:

The heart of a quartz watch is its electronic movement. A small battery sends an electrical current through a quartz crystal, causing it to vibrate at a precise frequency. This vibration is then translated into the smooth, sweeping motion of the second hand, ensuring accurate timekeeping.

Signs You Might Need a Movement Replacement:

While quartz movements are generally durable, several signs indicate it might be time for a replacement:

  • The watch stops keeping accurate time. This could be due to a failing battery, but a malfunctioning movement can also be the culprit.
  • The second hand movement becomes erratic or stops altogether.
  • Chronograph or other features malfunction.

Our Quartz Movement Replacement Expertise:

Our skilled watchmaker can diagnose the issue and determine if a quartz movement replacement is the best course of action. We carry a wide range of high-quality replacement movements compatible with various watch brands and models, including those used by popular fashion brands, microbrands, and even some established names like Movado, Longines, Invicta, and Timex.

Extending the Life of Your Quartz Watch:

While quartz movements are generally reliable, a few practices can help extend their lifespan:

  • Avoid extreme temperatures: Exposure to excessive heat or cold can damage the delicate components within the movement.
  • Maintain a clean watch: Dust and debris can interfere with the movement's operation. Regularly wipe down your watch with a soft, damp cloth.
  • Replace the battery promptly: A dead battery can eventually leak and damage the movement. Schedule regular battery replacements as recommended by your watch manufacturer.

Affordable Restoration:

Our quartz movement replacement services are competitively priced, typically starting at $50. However, the final cost can vary depending on the watch brand and the specific movement required. We recommend contacting us for a free estimate.
