Are you fair
to your watch?
An automobile needs frequent
attention. What about your
watch a mechanism Infinite
ly more delicate?
CARBON in the motor of a
car will decrease the running
efficiency of that car. And
yet the carbon will accumulate.
The car owner, knowing this, has
his car frequently overhauled
and the carbon removed.
And yet this same man, pei
hnps, will allow his wntch, a
mechanism Infinitely more deli
cate, to run for years without
attention. All the while it is ac
cumulating dust for tiny dirt
particles will sift in through the
most tightly fitting ense-nnd this
will in time impede the timekeep
ing performance of the watch.
Your automobile performs oc
casional service, but your watch
has to run continously for a full
twenty-four hours each day.
Look at your watch; How long
has it been since you took it to
a jeweler for examination?
I &" J
If your watch is to run at its
highest efficiency, it should be
cleaned, oiled and adjusted at
least once a year before the last
particle of oil has disappeared
from the bearings.
Our Service Department is
well equipped to make any re
pairs and adjustments that may
be necessary.
And while you are in, we par
ticularly invite you to view our
