maintaining your watch
A watch is often one of the most expensive accessories that you can buy and that’s why it hurts even more when it stops working or when you have to shell out extra money to repair it. However, if you follow the few simple tips that we’ve given below, it will help prolong the life of your watch and keep it in pristine condition:

  •  Understanding the water resistance capabilities of your watch is very important. If your watch has no water resistance rating you should shield it from any source of moisture such as rain or perspiration.
  •  Watches with resistance rating of 50-100 meters can withstand normal rain and can be used when swimming in a pool. They will also do fine during normal to heavy showers.
  •  For extreme water exposure such as scuba diving you will need watches with resistance rating of 200-500 meters.
  •  Do not expose your watch to heat by keeping it in places such as the dashboard of your car where the sunlight directly hits the watch. Watches which have a quartz stone can get damaged if exposed to heat.
  •  Avoid exposing your watch to extremely cold temperatures as it might function slowly.
  •  Wipe your watch using a soft cloth at least once a month to remove dirt, stains and water spots.
  •  When wearing a leather watch, always keep a gap between your watch and your skin — around the width of your little finger should do. This will help moisture evaporate. Also, wipe the watch belt once a month with a soft cloth damped with alcohol to remove body oils and dirt.
  •  In case of a metal strap, use a soft bristled tooth brush to clean the oil and perspiration once a month. If not cleaned, it could lead to rust.
  •  For rubber straps, apply a mild soap using a soft bristled brush and then pat dry using a cloth.
  •  The best way to preserve the crystals on your watches is to avoid wearing it in situations where it is likely your watch will be damaged. In case of major damage, take your watch to a jeweller or your watch company. In case of minor ones you can apply a very small quanity of toothpaste onto the crystal and then buff it with a soft cloth to lend shine to the crystal.
