How to take care of your watch

To ensure that your favorite timepiece runs correctly and gives you the utmost performance for many years to come, we have several tips and tricks that will help you along the way.
1. For every day to day basis and wear, do not wear a bracelet or chain on the same wrist as your watch.

-This will help you preserve that long term shine and perfect surface condition of your case.
2. Be careful to protect your watch from invisible factors such as
-Temperature: Exposure to extreme temperatures can reduce the service life of the battery and affect the liquidity/viscosity of the lubricants. Both mechanical and quartz watches are sensitive to severe changes in temperature.
-Vibrations associated with sports or anything with a lot of physical activity.
-Chemical Products: Direct contact with specific products such as solvents, detergents, various cosmetics and perfumes may damage the timepiece’s seal and alter the appearance of bracelets and cases.
-Magnetism: Placing your timepiece near electronic devices can generate magnetic fields that can affect its performance. Certain strong fields can magnetize steel components of the movement, specifically the balance spring. In rare cases, magnetizes parts may stick together which will cause the watch to run fast or even stop completely.
-Water-Resistance: The natural aging of the seals, wear and tear or accidental impacts to the crown can lead to a significant deterioration in water-resistance. We recommend that you get a water-resistance check every year.
When you have a watch and it is immersed in water, under no circumstances should you pull out the winding crown or press the push buttons to change the date or start the chronograph. By doing so, you may allow water to enter into the case and damage the overall movement.

Regular Maintenance:

Steel bracelet: Use a soft brush such as a toothbrush that can remove any specks of dust and grains of sand that may be embedded between the links
Leather strap: Servicing the life of a leather strap depends on how often it is worn and under what conditions. You should avoid all contact with water, greasy or acidic substances or cosmetics.
Rubber straps: Much like leather straps, servicing the life of a rubber straps depends on the frequency of its use. A rubber strap can be kept in good condition simply be using soapy water then rinsing with fresh water.
