(1) When wearing a watch, the sweat on the hand is corrosive to the case. The all-steel case is made of nickel-chromium alloy, which has better corrosion resistance. The semi-steel case is copper. It is in contact with sweat for a long time and is easy to corrode. Always use a soft cloth to wipe off the sweat or put on a plastic watch to prevent it from being eroded by sweat.

(2) Do not open the back cover of the watch at will, so as to prevent dust from entering the movement and affecting the normal operation of the watch.

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

(4) Do not place the watch on the amplifier, stereo, or TV to avoid magnetization.

(5) The ordinary mechanical watch is wet. It can be pressed on the watch with dry cotton, and then baked with a 40-watt bulb for 5 minutes. The moisture in the watch can all be evaporated. If the quartz electronic watch is wet, take a few small pieces of calcium chloride and wrap it in gauze; Then open the electronic table cover, wrapped calcium chloride and electronic table together into an airtight plastic bag or glass bottle for sealing. Generally, the moisture can be removed in about 3 hours, so that the electronic watch returns to normal. For tables with severe moisture, the moisture absorption time can be extended appropriately.

(6) When you receive a beloved watch, when you remove the outer packaging, you must keep the box for the protective watch.

The radiation emitted by radium can excite the zinc sulfide crystal to emit light. When sleeping, if the watch is worn, the human body will suffer eight The nine-hour radium radiation is harmful to the human body. Therefore, before going to bed, it is best to take the luminous table and put it on the table.

(9) The table was refurbished. After the watch has been marked with a lot of lines, you can drop one or two drops of water on the watch, then squeeze a little bit of toothpaste to remove the scratches and make the watch look like new.
