FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
- Q- How do I know if my watch is mechanical or battery operated?
- A- To easily differentiate movement categories look at the second hand. If you see a smooth sweeping motion it is a mechanical wind up watch…if you see a “tick tick” motion that moves once per second, this is a battery driven movement.
- Q- What is the best way to store my Quartz movement watch if I’m not wearing it for extended periods of time?
- A- If you do not plan to wear the watch for a year or longer, the battery should be removed by a qualified jeweler or watch specialist. Save the old battery so it can easily be replaced by corresponding numbers. It is not recommended to pull the stem out to stop the watch. The old battery can leak and permanently destroy the movement.
- Q- How long can I expect a new battery to last?
- A- 12-15 months minimum, however some movements can continue to work for several years. Watches with various functions can shorten the lifespan of the one battery or use more than one battery.
- Q- Is one movement recommended over another?
- A- Watch preference is really based on personal taste and budget. Do your homework before you purchase a finer watch. Maintenance and repairs can be costly.

SO… WHAT DOES “RE-TIPPING” MEAN?
Re-tipping is nothing more than building up the prongs so that they are durable again.
Because of the incredible abuse some jewelry receives during the course of every day wear, prongs have a tendency to get bent, broken, caught, cracked, and worn. Dirt buildup also hastens the wear of your jewelry. Visit your jeweler at least twice per year to have your fine jewelry professional cleaned and inspected for worn prongs, faulty clasps, or other potential problems.
HOW CAN I TELL IF MY PRONGS ARE WORN?
If you run your fingers over the tops of the prongs, you should be able to feel all the small rounded “nubs” of metal. If the prongs feel smooth and flat, and are even with the gemstone, this is a warning sign that it is time to bring the piece in for maintenance. Additionally, if you hear any stones rattling, or are constantly snagging on clothes and various fabrics, this is a tell-tale indication that your stones may be in jeopardy of falling out.
As always, it is better to be safe than sorry. If ever in doubt, bring your jewelry into My Jewel Shop for a free inspection, and our jewelers’ will be more than happy to assist you.
