Watch and jewellery companies offer watch repair services, and taking the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch to one is the best route to getting it fixed. Certain companies specialise in repairing Jaeger-LeCoultre watches.

Antoine LeCoultre is the inventor of the prestigious Swiss timepiece. Jaeger-LeCoultre was formed when LeCoultre's and Jaeger's watch companies merged in 1925. The Jaeger-LeCoultre brand did not emerge until 1937. Since then, the Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece has been a luxury to own.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate a watch repair shop of your preference. Several are available that specialise in repairing luxury watches like the Jaeger-LeCoultre.

    Keep the following considerations in mind when you research suitable repair shops: Swiss-trained watchmakers may be preferable in some cases, as they are trained specifically to fix Swiss timepieces, such as the Jaeger-LeCoultre. Plus, certain watch repair shops use genuine Jaeger-LeCoultre parts (see Resources).

  2. 2

    Inform the watch repair company of the watch services needed, such as battery replacement, crystal replacement, restoration, bands straps or tune up. This may be done by sending a letter with the watch to the company's repair shop. Or, some companies allow you to contact them via an online form.

  3. 3

    Obtain an estimate by sending the watch to the repair shop. Some companies offer a free estimate, while others charge a fee. Carefully package the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch in padded packaging material, and use a sturdy box to encase the watch. Proper packing prevents damage to the watch during transport. Be advised that sending the watch in a simple, padded envelope will surely result in damage to your watch.

  4. 4

    Ship your watch to the preferred watch repair shop. Buy insurance to protect your investment in the event the watch is lost, stolen or damaged.

  5. 5

    Pay for your repaired watch if you decide you like the estimate and services offered by the repair shop. You may submit payment via the preferred method outlined in the repair shop's website. Finally, wait for the return of your newly fixed watch, typically a few weeks, depending on the turnaround time the shop indicates. Some companies offer a one-year warranty.
