Magnetic fields, such as those emanating from induction hobs, cell phones, refrigerator magnets, or loudspeakers, for example, can have an adverse impact on your mechanical watch. If you suddenly notice a strong variation in the accuracy of your watch, it could be due to magnetization, which a watchmaker can soon remedy.
Leather straps: Like any leather product, a leather watch strap requires careful treatment. For this reason, protect your leather watch strap from water, moisture, grease, cosmetics, and chemicals and do not overexpose it to the sun.
Metal bracelets: Metal bracelets also need to be cleaned on a regular basis. Use a microfiber cloth to clean the surface and a soft toothbrush or cotton swab for the gaps.
A watch is a complicated mechanical instrument. It runs day in, day out, and in many cases for years without ever stopping. Just as a car cannot be driven for 200,000 kilometers without being serviced, your watch requires regular maintenance. We recommend an inspection every four to five years.
