Roma Gioielli specialize in the thorough and professional complete servicing of high-grade watches.
EXTEND YOUR WATCH’S LIFE
When you invest in a quality timepiece it is important to maintain it with regular, quality service, thereby extending the overall life of your watch and maintaining its accurate time-keeping ability. To be effective, this service and maintenance must be done using the appropriate tools, lubrication, equipment and parts in order to maintain the optimal condition of the timepiece. As our watchmakers have seen countless times, when a watch is serviced poorly or improperly, it can cause further damage to the watch and can actually shorten the life span of the watch. Our watchmakers have the training, experience and integrity to help ensure that you get the best performance out of your timepiece, and can work on most watch brands, depending on the service and parts needed.
