Hello! I recently purchased my first automatic watch, the Archimede Pilot M. I like it quite a lot!
Alas, I clearly have no place owning such a nice timepiece, as recently I clumsily dropped from about waist height onto a slate floor. Oof. From what I can tell, there's no major damage, apart from a scuffed case and a little crack on the inside of rear crystal. It seems to still tell time accurately. I would like this watch to last as long as I do, and I'm worried about internal damage that will hurt the watch's prospects for long-term survival.
1. How likely is it that there's some kind of internal damage that I can't see? I seem to notice a spec of dust or two underneath the crystal. I realize that I may only noticing this now as I've been looking the watch over for damage ever since the drop.
2. Would it be worth paying a professional to open it up and give the internals a once-over, or should I leave the internals undisturbed?
Well, that was verbose. Any advice or guidance would be appreciated!
