Caring for your timepiece
Patek Philippe timepieces are designed to last many generations. To ensure your legacy endures, we recommend a regular service every five years (three years for non-waterproof models) to keep your timepiece in perfect working order.
In order to preserve the value of your Patek Philippe timepiece, it is important to regularly service your watch. Watch maintenance should only be undertaken by an accredited Patek Philippe Service Center. Below we explain our recommended maintenance guidelines:
- Quartz and mechanical watches (whether manually wound or self-winding): must be serviced every five years (three years for non-waterproof models). However, as batteries normally last only two or three years, quartz watches will need to be returned to an authorized agent more frequently for a battery change.
- It is advisable to have a water-resistance test carried out every year on water-resistant watches. This is a simple procedure that takes only a few minutes at a properly equipped point of sale.
- A Patek Philippe service is guaranteed for one year by the Authorized Service Center that carried out the check-up. Any intervention performed by a non-authorized agent renders the Patek Philippe guarantee void.
