    Service is suggested every four to six years.

    Use them untill they start losing the accurancy, or every 5 years, which ever comes first.

    I just plan to wait for the accuracy to go out of whack. Ive never had a nice watch long enough to require service.

    The manufacturer's recommendation you should service a watch every five years is a little short, probably made in the hopes that you will take your watch to one of their service centers every five years.

    With modern synthetic oils that don't break down as rapidly as older natural oils, you can probably go ten years without a service.

    my good friends, told me that resistance will be no more so tight after the watches have opened a few times..

    Are we talking about water resistance here?
    When they open your watch, they should replace t he rubber gaskets (seals) and pressure test it to be sure that it works as expected. Opening it is no problem at all if done by a qualified person.
