Watch Care

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 taken 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:



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.


Magnets, how do they work

Magnets can negatively effect your watch, By magnetizing the watch, you can seriously damage the internal components of your timepiece rendering it inoperable. Keeping your watch close to your phone or other similar objects can have the same effect.



Most watches are water resistant to a certain depth, you should know your watches water resistance, before submerging your watch under water.



Make sure to get your watch serviced every 2-3 years, especially if you own a mechanical or automatic watch. Most swiss manufacturers recommend a complete overhaul every 5 years.



As always its best to keep your watches stored in a watch box. You wouldn’t want your cat to knock your precious timepiece on the floor and destroy the internals.
