The importance of a good service in a vintage watch

We some times forget that watches are mechanisms that are alive and they need care as a car/or other would. I am trying to be informative as many collectors just don't take count of the importance of caring for their vintages as a watch is not only what you see from the outside. Its intrinsic value lies on it's overall!

This is a comment I often read from vintage watch vendors... "I just got a 30-40 year old watch from my father or grandfather etc... and it still in good running condition!" or "I have this watch that has been kept in a drawer and have not worn it for 20 or more years and I'm glad to say that it still runs well!"

The only fact that a vintage watch runs well doesn't mean that the watch will run properly in the near future...
Would you run your car having the same oil for 20 years? Would you park your car for 5 years, and then start it up and run it on 5 year old oil?

There is oil in it to prevent metal on metal wear. When a watch is not worn, one of two things happens, the oil evaporates or collects to one side and turns into "tar". When a watch is serviced it is tested in several positions, not just face up or down, as on a table top. A properly serviced mechanical can last over 100 years, IF properly serviced.

Vintage automatic and manual wind watches were intended to be serviced every 3-5 years! If the watch you are considering to purchase does not specifically say when it has had a service then you should plan on needing to have the watch serviced upon its arrival. Some movements can imply great difficulty as certain services can be complex or even become very expensive or is irreparable!

I good service includes the complete dismounting of the complete watch and movement. Each part to be controlled, cleaning of each component and if necessary, replace the used parts by original parts, oiling and adjustment of the movement. Replacement of all gaskets for the best protection against humidity. So this is not only about oiling a movement randomly as this needs a professional work not by pseudo watch maker amateurs.
I mention this very carefully as I'm tired of opening purchased watches that are full of oil, gaskets in bad condition and/or melt over the movement and that stops functioning correctly after some time.

And another advice on quick setting the day and/or date:

Presuming your watch has been serviced in the last 3-5 years... Normally you keep winding it past midnight until the day is correct and then STOP. Now you wind it back to 8:30 p.m. and back to midnight until the date is correct. Then you set the time. >IF< the watch's date is WAY OFF, do this about 5 days at a time and let it rest for a minute. The gears are very small and when you wind them quickly it is like taking your car over 100 MPH! By letting it rest for a minute you let the gears cool off.
