Question about Elgin Watches
Just cleaned and oiled and now will not run
Posted by Anonymous on
Could be a lot of things. Cleaned and oiled isn't the same as overhauled. A bad cleaning will just move some particles out of the way, temporarily. Eventually, they can stop a watch. A part could have broken during the cleaning. You may have "over wound" (jammed gear) the watch and it's stuck. So, sorry, but no single answer. Yesterday, I bought a watch that was supposedly cleaned. I removed the back to authenticate. It was dirty. So... A reputable place is important. Size of store or advertising is not. Do some checking. Good watchmakers are hard to find.
A good watch overhaul can cost at least $125 and well over $600 on higher end brand name watches. Average is about $160 at retail.
