Watch Maintenance | Expand the Life of Your Watch
If we asked, “ What’s the most important aspect of owning a luxury watch?” Would you say maintaining its appearance? Making sure that your timepiece is accurate? Perhaps you may say keeping your watch dry and water-resistant is key. Whichever statement resonates with you the most falls under the same commonality: proper watch maintenance is the king of responsibility for the watch enthusiast. Here’s how you can cater to your watch with accurate and efficient methods.
Clean it Up and Wind it Down
Wearing your watch regularly means it may come in contact with oil, dirt, dust, and other particles that can damage or corrode your timepiece. Wiping down the entire watch, including the watch case and straps, every few weeks, helps to keep your watch looking spotless. Take a soft, damp cloth and wipe down the watch, and then follow it with a dry cloth. Allow the timepiece to air dry before putting it away in its box.
If you are an occasional watch-wearer, winding your watch every few months when you aren’t using it is also necessary. Doing so will prevent the chemicals and oils inside the watch case from hardening and getting in the way of the free-moving parts of the piece.
Gaskets and Seals
No matter how sturdy your watch may look, it’s important to understand that exposure to certain elements can damage your piece—potentially beyond repair. Liquid and humidity are primary causes of dysfunctionality in a watch, which can be eliminated with mindful maintenance. Even waterproof watches cannot guarantee that moisture won't sneak in over time. To keep your watch in top shape, have a professional examine them on a regular basis to verify every component is in working order. If you suspect your watch has been harmed by water (a cloudy face is a good indicator), take it to a specialist to be assessed and repaired.
