Care & Cleaning

Read the manufacturer’s instructions and warranty information carefully.

Only an expert jeweler or watchmaker should be trusted to repair your watch.

Oils from your skin can build up on a watch. If your watch is water-resistant, clean it with a damp cloth and a mixture of warm water and mild soap. For watches with no-metal straps, consult your professional jeweler on how to clean.

Wind your watch in a clockwise direction about the same time each day. Remove from your wrist when winding.

Although many watches are equipped with shock-resistant devices, it’s not wise to subject it to overly vigorous treatment.

Replace broken or scratch crystals immediately. Even a hairline crack can threaten the timekeeping mechanism’s accuracy.

Unless the degree of water resistance is clearly specified when you purchase you watch, do not expose it to water or moisture.

Always ensure that locking crowns and cases are secure before immersing a watch-resistance watch. Be sure to wash your watch off in freshwater immediately after exposing it to saltwater.

Have the battery in a quartz watch replaced by a professional before it runs out. Dead batteries left in a watch can leak or corrode, ruining the timepieces.

Finally, if you have any questions, ask your professional jeweler. Your jeweler values you as a customer, and you should trust their expertise and judgment.
