This particular watch in for repair ,unfortunately, like many others, was stowed away in a drawer when the owner received a smartwatch as a gift. After a few years, when the desire to wear the Apeks resurfaced, the owner sought a battery replacement, new seals (gaskets), and a pressure test at the store to ensure its continued functionality.

Our meticulous Apeks watch repair services cover various aspects:

  1. Battery Replacement: If your watch has been dormant for a while, a battery replacement is often the first step. Our team ensures a seamless transition, using high-quality batteries to power up your Apeks watch.
  2. Seal (Gasket) Replacement: Over time, seals can wear out, compromising the water resistance of your Apeks watch. We provide expert seal replacement services, utilizing top-grade materials to ensure optimal performance.
  3. Pressure Testing: To guarantee the durability of your Apeks watch, we conduct thorough pressure tests. This step ensures that your watch can withstand the challenges of underwater environments, meeting the high standards set by Apeks.
  4. Movement Replacement: If your watch requires a new movement, fear not. We source Seiko quartz movements, integral to Apeks watches, through our efficient UK distribution channels, ensuring a quick and reliable replacement.
  5. :Crystal Replacement: Whether it’s a routine upgrade or addressing visible wear and tear, our crystal replacement services ensure your Apeks watch maintains its pristine appearance.

Upon examination, it became apparent that the battery had leaked, causing damage to the watch’s movement, which, in the case of Apeks watches, utilizes Seiko movements. Thankfully, Seiko quartz movements are readily available and replaceable, and in this instance, the necessary movement was conveniently accessible through UK distribution channels.

While awaiting the arrival of the new movement, we utilized the time to disassemble and clean the case, subsequently assembling it with new crystal and gaskets followed by conducting a pressure test to ensure water resistance.
