We want your new watch to be reliable and long lasting, so to help here are a few guidelines to help you keep your sparkling new watch in pristine order; in appearance and workmanship for many years to come.
 

Watch Straps/Bracelets


Stainless steel bracelets:

It's good to clean your metal watch case and bracelet with a soft brush (old tooth brush works a treat) with cold water and liquid soap, then rinse it off with cold water afterwards. Human sweat is acidic and contains salt which can over time corrode and mark the underside of your metal watch, not to mention the build up of dead skin and debris from the air around us. Cleaning it every couple of months will help prolong the appearance of your new wristwatch.

Leather straps:

To prolong the life of your leather strap, avoid the following: Exposure to direct sunlight for long periods, submerging in water for long periods, contact with solvents, detergents and perfumes. As with metal straps human sweat will over time deteriorate your leather strap as well as normal wear and tear, however replacing a leather strap is easy and non-expensive. You can get a new leather strap fitted at your local jewellery shop or you can contact the manufacturer of your watch who may be able to send you the original strap for a small fee.


Rubber/Plastic straps:

Plastic and rubber straps should not be exposed to fragrance sprays, insecticides, chemicals, detergents and gasses. Try to avoid getting oily substances or paint on your watch as it will prove difficult to remove, like leather straps plastic and rubber will deteriorate over time and may harden and discolour after extensive use and wear and tear.
 

Watch movements

Quartz/Battery powered:

All quartz watches are powered by batteries (some models from Fossil use a mixture of quartz and automatic movements, please see your manual for full information). If your watch stops working you should send it to the service center (details of which can be found in your manual) to have the battery replaced as soon as possible. While they are replacing the battery it's a good idea to have your watch serviced especially if your watch is water resistant, any worn seals or gaskets will be replaced at the same time. Quartz movements contain both electronic and mechanical parts which will need periodic servicing every couple of years. Most Quartz batteries last around two years; some watches do house batteries that last as long as 10 years, for full details please read your manual that came with your watch. Please note: If you leave a dead battery in your watch for long periods of time it can leak and permanently damage your watch to the point it will be unrepairable.

Automatic/Mechanical:

Mechanical and automatic watches should be serviced by the manufacturers service center (details can be found in your manual) every 3 years to keep your watch accurate, they also require cleaning and servicing as the movement can be made up of hundreds of moving parts which can stop if even the smallest particle of dust or debris manages to get inside. Automatic watches are powered by the wearer's movements; if the watch is left for a long period of time without being worn you will have to manually wind the watch. Please note: You should keep your automatic/mechanical watch away from magnetic sources, leaving your automatic/mechanical watch near things like HifI/Cinema speakers, white goods or other sources which produce a magnetic field can damage the movement and stop it from working.
 

Water Resistant/Proof Watches - Important Information

Always adhere to the water resistance as stated on either the dial or case back (check the manual for full information). To avoid extensive and sometimes irreversible damage to the movement, make sure the crown is screwed down properly to stop water entering into the case. If you see condensation building up on the inside of the watch lens, you should send it to the manufacturers service center as soon as possible. Avoiding hot water in a bath or shower is a must because the heat can expand the gaskets and seals that keep your watch water tight before shrinking again as it cools down; allowing water to enter. All water resistant watches should be serviced regularly by the manufacturers service center, and any worn seals or gaskets replaced every 1-2 years depending on how much you use your watch in wet conditions. Even a hard knock can stop your watch from keeping water out, so as stated above if you see any condensation within the watch face have it serviced immediately. The term water resistance refers to the watches ability to withstand water to certain pressures in laboratory conditions. If you dive into a pool, then the pressure will be greater than the pressure while swimming at the same depth, see chart below for guidance on use of watches in water.

* Only watches marked "Divers" on the dial should be used for diving, as they fully comply with the international standards for divers watches. If you intend to go Scuba diving, then a specialist watch designed for this is strongly advised. Water resistant watches should be inspected every year by a qualified jeweller and any worn out seals replaced. The water seals should also be checked whenever the watch is opened - for instance when having a new battery fitted. "Water resistant" should never be confused with "water proof". Please note: Try not to use the crown or push buttons while the watch is submerged in water, as this could allow water to penetrate your watch.
