    There is a big difference between "operational" and "in need of a service".

    A car engine may start and work fine with 80,000 mile old oil, but that doesn't mean the oil is in good condition or not in need of changing......

    While wearing the watch less may theoretically lead to less wear on some parts, often when you service a watch, you pay a set price regardless if there is only little minor work done, or a bit more minor work. Prices only are increased when something unexpected needs to be replaced. So, really there is not much point in changing what is convenient for you, just wear the watch how you like.
