Your timepiece is a precision built instrument in the form of a watch. It is normally worn on the wrist, where it can be subject to damage or abuse, often without you realising it. Take care of it and it will continue to serve you faithfully.
Always clean off dirt, dust or perspiration, and wipe dry as soon as possible if a timepiece becomes wet. Regular cleaning of resin straps to remove skin salts or chlorine from swimming pools will extend its life and soft feel. Some watch models are water resistant to varying degrees while others are not.
The Term 'Water Resistant'
With the term "water resistant", please bear in mind that the degree of "resistancy" relates to pressure, measured in a static condition, at a given depth under water. But remember, the faster an object is moved in or against water, the greater the pressure. For that reason a watch that may be water resistant to 30 metres (approx 100ft) may leak if exposed to water coming forcefully from a tap, or worn whilst vigorously swimming, or jumping into water or diving, as the increased pressure may exceed the designed static resistancy. N.B. modern power showers can run up to 3 bar pressure. This is equal to 30 metres depth!
Handling of Non-Water Resistant Watches
If your watch is not water resistant (see back of the case or dial to determine this) protect or remove your watch when washing your hands, working or playing around water or walking in the rain. Regular hot showers cause the gaskets to distort, dry out grease and prematurely age. Moisture ingress into your watches circuit boards is impossible to remove 100% so can cause electrical shorts in the future, even if a service has been carried out.
Handling of Water Resistant Watches
Although water-resistant watches are warranted, steps should be taken to avoid damage that results from mishandling:
• Do not operate the crown or push-button in the water or while the watch is wet. Tighten screw lock crown completely.
• Should the watch become immersed in water, dry it off immediately. If the watch comes in contact with salt water, be sure to rinse it thoroughly in warm fresh water to remove any trace of salt.
• If a watch is wet from cleaning or by accident, never store it in a closed container. It should be dried immediately or taken to a watchmaker or jeweller if moisture is inside the case to prevent damage from rust.
• Parts such as the crown, packing and other water-resistant materials should be replaced every year or two to ensure water resistance.
Care for Metal Bracelets
To extend the life and maintain the good appearance of the metal watch bracelet, the following recommendations are given:
• Be aware that since the watch and bracelet is worn next to the skin, it collects dust and perspiration and becomes soiled if not cleaned regularly. This is particularly true of the inner parts of the links or mesh of the bracelet.
• Soil and rust, when present in a bracelet, are dissolved by perspiration and can cause staining of cuffs and irritation of the skin in some instances.
• Heavy perspiration should be wiped off the watch and bracelet with a soft dry cloth. The bracelet should be cleaned occasionally by using an old toothbrush and warm soapy water after which the soap is thoroughly rinsed with clear water and the bracelet dried completely. The foregoing manner of cleaning should not be done if the watch is not water-resistant but should instead be done by your jeweller.
Care for Leather Straps
• Heavy perspiration, if not removed from a leather strap, can wash out the natural oils and cause the leather to become dry and deteriorate. Any moisture should be blotted with a soft dry cloth or paper towel and the strap allowed to dry naturally.
• Salt residue & soil can be removed from the leather by cleaning with a dampened soft cloth and mild soap or saddle soap.
• Occasionally, the inside surface of the strap should be cleaned by using a soft cloth dampened with alcohol.
• The strap should always be worn a little loosely (one finger space between wrist and strap) to allow air to circulate, causing any moisture to evaporate.
Care for Resin Straps
Regular cleaning of resin straps to remove skin salts or chlorine from swimming pools will extend its life and soft feel.
Care for Rubber Straps
• Rubber straps should be washed frequently with mild soap and warm water using a soft brush.
• Thorough cleaning, using the same method, should especially be done after use in salt water.
• Solvents, oils, perspiration, tanning lotion and salt can cause rubber to deteriorate if not removed.
