REPAIRS and RESTORATIONS
«Restoration» the new life of a watch. When a clock enters the Somazzi watchmaking laboratory, it will surely come out with a perfectly renewed heart; new life and many years of life, even when it comes to pieces that are already two hundred or more years old. The movement is opened and all the gears completely disassembled, placed in a first bath of specific substances, followed by an ultrasound bath. At this point each piece is ready to be checked.
All anomalies are detected such as pin scratches, time wear, spring defects etc. All damaged parts are replaced or repaired. We remount the movement to also check the wear of the holes. The holes are rectified after dismantling the whole mechanics. All parts are washed again and only at this point we enter the last phase, in which the watch is reassembled, oiled and controlled.
Examination of watches and clocks.
An expertise can also start using a photo shoot of the object.
