5 Tips on How To Take Care Of Your Watch

A watch does more than just tell the time. Often, there are personal memories associated with it, making it an incredibly sentimental object. And, if take care of properly , you can pass your watch on to future generations. Watches are built to last, and it’s not difficult to properly take care of it to keep it in top shape:

Cleaning Your Watch

Clean your watch as often as possible. Take a soft cloth and wipe down the band and the case to remove any dirt or dust. Soak the watch in soap and water (recommended only on a stainless steel bracelet watch ) every couple of months to loosen the dirt, make sure you check your watch water resistant. 

Getting Your Watch Serviced

Get your watch serviced every two or threes years for a mechanical watch and three to four years for a quartz watch. (When in doubt, have a visit to your nearest Watch Studio store, click here to check our store location)

Keeping Away from Magnets

Avoid magnets. Some of you may not be aware that placing your watch close to a magnet can negatively affect the timekeeping of your watch.

Water Resistance Matters

Know your watch’s water resistance. Most watches these days are built with some water resistance, but vintage watches tend to lose their waterproof-ness over time. If your watch is not water resistant, it can still handle small splashes of water, but it’s best to avoid it. And, if your watch has a leather band, avoid getting your watch wet—water weakens the leather.

Your Watch’s Crystal

Take care of the crystal. This is quite obvious, but it’s still important and worth mentioning. Take every precaution you can to prevent from banging the crystal of your watch against a wall or any other objects that may cause scratches.
