    Servicing

    Greetings. In the last month i've bought a brand new self winding glycine incursore. The model is around 5 years old and i'm aware of having a service every 5 years or so. My question is, if the watch is 5 years old anyway, does it need servicing now or in 5 years time?
    Thanks

    Kinda like saying, if your car stops running have it towed in.

    a) a stitch in time saves nine

    b) if it ain't broke, don't fix it

    You can only agree with one of these statements.

    Dunno WB, kinda like if your car starts to lose oil (slowly), fill it up, maybe take her in . . .

    IMHO ... if it is running well, leave it alone.

    Do you believe in 'preventive maintenance'?
