Watch Wearing and Maintenance Guide
Mar 09, 2018

Watch cases or straps, like personal clothing, are contacted with human skin directly. If dirt doesn't be cleaned, they can easily contaminate the cuffs of the clothes. They can also cause skin irritation. Therefore, they need to be kept clean. When removing the watch, you can use a soft cloth to wipe the body, strap, and buckle gently to increase the life of the watch.

(1) When wearing a watch, the sweat on the hands is corrosive to watch case. The all-steel case is nickel-chromium alloy and has better anti-corrosion performance. The semi-steel case is copper, and it is in contact with sweat for a long time and is prone to corrosion. You should use a soft cloth to wipe away sweat or add a plastic table top to prevent it from being eroded by sweat.

(2) Do not open the back of the watch to avoid dust entering the movement and affecting the normal work of the watch.

(3) Do not put the watch in a wardrobe with mothballs to avoid deterioration of the oil.

(4) Do not place your watch on amplifiers, stereos, or televisions to avoid magnetization.

        (5)If digital watch is affected by damp, you can take some small pieces of calcium chloride and wrap them in gauze; then open the watch back, and  put the packed calcium chloride and the electronic watch together in an airtight plastic bag or glass hermetically. Generally, the humidity can be removed about 3 hours so that the electronic watch get normal. For moisture-intensive watches, the moisture absorption time can be prolonged.

(6)When you receive a beloved watch and remove the outer packaging, you must keep the packing box used to protect the watch. These protective watch boxes can provide the watch with the safest protection when it is not normally worn, and prevent the watch from being damaged or collided. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to keep the box, and it is recommended if you don't wear a watch,you can put it to watch box in order to  greatly reduce the chance of damage to the watch.

(7)It is recommend to wear the same watch every day. Instead, you should prepare several different watches to use alternately. This will not only enrich the individual's shape, but also prevent dust and body dirt from being concentrated on the same watch. For the leather strap, you should take more care to avoid the frequent wear and tear caused by everyday use of the strap. Even if the watch dial looks new , the watch will look very old.

(8)If you wear a luminous watch on your wrist, it will have an adverse effect on the body. This is because the luminescent materials coated on the hands and dials are mainly a mixture of radium and zinc sulfide. The radiation emitted by radium can excite the zinc sulphide crystals. When sleeping, if you wear a watch, the human body will be subjected to eight to nine hours. Radiated radiation is harmful to the human body. Therefore, before going to bed, it is best to take down the luminous table and put it on the table.

(9)If the glass is scratched, You can put one or two drops of clear water on it, and then squeeze a little toothpaste to wipe, and last the glass will recover as new.
