Care for your watch
- Ideally a watch needs to be serviced every year or two. Some watches will keep going OK for years without needing repair, but don’t risk it, there could be problems of wear building up that will make eventual overhaul more difficult or impracticable.
- Unless the degree of water resistance is clearly defined or marked on your watch or in the product manual, don't risk wearing it in the shower or pool. ‘Water resistant’ is not the same as ‘Waterproof’.
- No matter how handy you are, don't attempt any 'do-it-yourself' watch repairs or even take a peek inside. Only an expert watchmaker should be trusted to put your watch back into working condition if there is a problem.
