An overhaul involves:-
Removing the movement from the case, removing the hands and dial from the movement.
Dismantling the movement into component parts, and checking all parts for signs of wear, replacing where necessary.
Cleaning and rinsing the individual parts in special fluids that remove all traces of old congealed oil.
Reassembling and oiling where necessary with special Swiss watch oils.
Ultrasonically cleaning and polishing the case and bracelet.
Refitting the movement into the case and testing for water resistance if necessary.
Testing over several days for timekeeping.
