Correct watch care
Devote a little time to your watchHow to clean and maintain your watch properly
Storing your watch
- Store your watch safely in a case or drawer. More valuable pieces should be kept in a safe.
- Modern quartz watches have an energy-saving mode. If you only wear your watch from time to time, you can pull out the crown to the time-setting position. This reduces power consumption to a minimum and extends battery life.
- To prevent wristwatches from deteriorating while in storage, it is sufficient to wind them once every couple of months. For automatic watches with additional calendar functions, a watch winder is recommended.
- Please note that, when quartz watches are left in storage, acid can leak out of empty batteries and cause serious damage to the movement. For that reason, it is important that batteries of quartz watches that have been left in storage are replaced as quickly as possible.
