Watch Care Tips
Our Best Watch Care Tips
After seeing how useful having a reliable timepiece is, you will always want to keep it in tip-top shape. This means taking the time to ensure that your watch is properly cared for so that none of its functionalities have a chance of degrading. How can you ensure that your watch is in good shape? Of course, every timepiece is made differently, so you should always make sure that you become familiar with your specific model to understand its requirements. To increase the longevity of your watch, consider the techniques we have outlined below to be the best watch owner possible.
Cleaning and Winding
Winding your timepiece is important to preserve its functionality, but how important that is will largely depend on what movement it has. Automatic movement watches will see the best use of winding, requiring daily winding to ensure functionality. Watches with quartz movements will not have to be wound daily, however, cleaning your watch is vital regardless of the movement it uses. Cleaning it with a damp rag and cloth is an ideal way of keeping it sharp, but your local jewelry store, such as Rumanoff’s, offers cleaning services if you do not want to risk potential water damage.
Gaskets and Seals
Just because your timepiece is waterproof when you buy does not mean it will maintain the same feature throughout its lifespan. Over time, the gaskets and seals that prevent water from leaking into a watch’s most vital components have the potential to wear down. Sometimes, the damage can be so unnoticeable that small amounts of water can leak in over time, causing damage to your watch’s vital movements that can gradually get worse. Local jewelry stores like Rumanoff’s offer routine repair services to ensure that water does not slip through the cracks. It is important to utilize these services frequently to prevent any water damage that might occur.
