If you have a mechanical watch tuning it up once a year is eagerly suggested.
The reason behind this is that it works with lubrication and over time it can dry out. If this happens you will start to lose time on the watch as well as create a fine dust that is abrasive to the workings of the watch. Always follow the instructions from the manufacturer on the watch's servicing needs.
What happens when you take your watch to be serviced? The jeweler will take the watch apart and clean it with ultrasonic technology. The watch will also be polished and examined for any parts that may be worn.
If any parts are found they will be replaced then the watch will be reassembled, oiled, and regulated. The maintenance will also include checking on the water-resistance of the watch if it has this feature.
You may find that you have a warranty on the watch so be sure you check to see if there is a specific dealer that you need to take the watch to for maintenance.
