Very Experienced Techs at a VERY low Price!

Overhauling your watch. (Clean and Oil).
We remove the inside of the watch and disassemble the parts. We then place the parts into a 4 cycle cleaning machine that removes dirt, old oils, film, and any debris that may have cause the watch to not work properly. Once the 4 cycle process is completed the technician oils and assembles the watch movements accordingly applying proper amounts of oils and grease as needed. The skill is in how much and where to place the oil and grease. Too much or too little will place too much friction on axial, pinion, gears, and other sensitive components.

Star Time cleans the outside of the watch by place the watch without the inside into an industrial ultrasonic machine that vibrates the dirt off the watch. The watch is placed into the machine that has a cleaning solution. The solution helps loosen and remove the dirt.

Replacing a battery in a watch yourself.
If you haven't seen the inside of a watch, it would be a challenge to avoid damaging the circuit or other parts of the watch as you use common tools to pry open the back of the watch. Holding the watch while you try to open the back is another challenge. At as small
price, our technician can do this for you. With over ten years of experience with opening and closing thousands of watches, we will to it properly for you.

Battery Replacement by a professional.
Star Time replaces batteries very often and we order batteries weekly. Fresh battery's means the watch will last longer compared to buying battery's at sores that may not insure freshness. Closing a watch to maintain water resistance is important as making it tick again. Even your perspiration can damage a watch if the back is not sealed properly. With proper tools and years of experience and knowledge of how to open the back, avoiding fragile parts and handling of the battery, Star Time replaces battery with professionalism.

Crystal Replacement - Plastic Crystal Polishing.
You may replace scratched crystals. Each crystal replacement most often includes a case and band replacement. Polishing is generally free if you are doing other replaces to that watch. Polish is upon request. ($20-$40 for most; with high saphire and special crystals at $80 plus)
