Do you dream of an engine that burns no fuel and runs for several decades provided it is periodically serviced ? That is what you get from your Tavannes mechanical watch, designed to run 24 hours a day for several generations.
With a mechanical watch, only your attachment to the masterpiece you have chosen can render you attentive to the natural ageing of the lubricants and seals; do not wait until it stops to offer it the rejuvenating treatment it deserves.
If you have opted for a quartz watch, the battery life reminds you at regular intervals that it is time to entrust it to the watchmakers of the Tavannes Watch Customer Service.

How to take care of your watch?
  Please avoid:
- magnetic fields (magnets, loudspeakers, etc)
- hard knocks (manual work, extreme sports, etc)
  Rules to abide by:
- follow the instructions for use
- follow the regular maintenance instructions
- if your watch has to be wound by hand, do it at a regular time
- if it is water-resistant, make the water resistance service every two years
The frequency of maintenance servicing depends on a number of factors. It is predominantly influenced by the wearer’s activities and environment, by temperature and humidity, by violent and repeated accelerations, by thermal shocks, blows, etc.
The size of your watch is also a determining factor. The smaller the movement, the more frequent the servicing.
