1. Keep Away from Magnetic Objects

Avoid placing your watch near magnetic objects, as the magnetic field can interfere with the watch's accuracy and function.

2. Address Water Ingress Promptly

If water enters your watch (even just air moisture), take it to a repair center immediately to prevent rusting of the movement.

3. Remove Protective Film

Before using your watch, remove any protective film or stickers from the back. Sweat can seep into the backing paper, causing the back of the watch to rust.

4. Avoid Contact with Chemicals

Keep your watch away from solvents and chemicals. These substances can corrode the case and strap, leading to discoloration and rust.

5. Temperature Considerations

For quartz watches, the ideal operating temperature range is 5°C to 35°C. Temperatures above 50°C can cause battery leakage or shorten battery life. Avoid prolonged exposure to temperatures below -10°C, as the cold can cause time discrepancies. When the watch returns to normal temperature, it should function correctly again.

6. Understanding Water Resistance

Watches are categorized by their water resistance levels. Here's a breakdown:

  • Sweat-Resistant: Very easy to understand, just prevent sweat from running into the watch.
  • Water-Resistant: It doesn’t matter if it occasionally touches water. For example, when you water the flowers, you accidentally spray water on your hands. Don’t be nervous.
    Just take it off and wipe it clean. In short, it is to prevent occasional small splashes in life.
  • 30M Water-Resistant (3ATM, 3BAR): The watch with "30M" on it is a waterproof watch. It can be used for daily grooming or rain, but it is mainly to prevent the movement from being damaged by dust and moisture.
    30-meter waterproof, according to professionals, means that each square centimeter can withstand a pressure of 3 kilograms, which is equivalent to the pressure of 30 meters deep in a static state, which is equivalent to the pressure of 3 atmospheres. For ordinary consumers like us, we only need to remember 30m, which is the most basic waterproof watch.
  • 50M Water-Resistant (5ATM, 5BAR): A watch with "50M" on it is a 50-meter waterproof watch. It is a truly waterproof watch in the minds of consumers and can be used for swimming and general household waterproofing. Remember not to adjust the watch in water.
  • Diver’s Watch (100M, 200M, 300M Water-Resistant): Designed for professional use, suitable for swimming, diving, and other underwater activities.

Friendly Reminders

  1. Avoid Hot Water and Steam: Do not wear your water-resistant watch in hot water or steam environments, such as hot baths or saunas.
  2. Temperature Fluctuations: Avoid using your watch in environments with significant temperature changes. This can cause condensation inside the watch, leading to water ingress and fogging. If this happens, visit a professional watch repair service for cleaning and maintenance.
  3. Handle with Care: Remember, a watch is a precision instrument. Good habits can extend its life, while neglect can shorten it.

By following these tips, you can ensure your watch remains in excellent condition, providing accurate timekeeping and lasting enjoyment for years to come.
