    What movement parts tend to wear out most often?

    Hi,

    Ordering some replacement parts and thought that while my watch guy is servicing several of the movements, I would order those parts that wear out more often. He'll have them apart anyway.

    The watches are all manual and automatic Enicars.

    I would suspect, but could be quite wrong, that some movements are quite different in the wear factors...

    Cheers,

    Hunter

    That's correct. And keep in mind, that if high quality movement is properly serviced every 3-5 years, it will last you a lifetime with little wear.

    Thanks! Appreciate the input.

    I used be involved with exotic cars and learned that whenever you break the motor open to replace a valve or bearing, you just wind up redoing the whole thing while you have it apart anyway. Glad to hear watches are different...

    Yes very different. While not exotic, I work with cars all the time
