A mechanical watch is more than just something that tells the time. Not only is it a pure symbol of classical engineering, with a rich and interesting history, but there are also personal stories associated with these watches, many times making sentimental values outweigh financial ones. If properly cared for, a good mechanical timepiece can be passed along from generation to generation.
Service your watch every two or three years, regardless of warranty length. You want to be sure and catch issues before they are a problem.
Some watch wearers are not aware of their watch’s limits and take their watch too deep. If your watch cannot handle the depths, the rapid change in pressure may prove to be too much for your watch to handle. If your watch is not water resistant, it can still handle small splashes of water, but it’s best to avoid it.
Take every precaution you can to prevent from banging the crystal of your watch against a wall or any other objects that may cause scratches.
When not wearing your watch, it’s best to keep it in the box it came in. By setting the watch on its side or on the crystal, there is always the possibility the watch could get scratched. The watch box is made to keep the watch safe and offers protection for the watch.
Leave this up to a watchmaker. Opening your watch can expose it to dust, dirt, and other particles that can get inside the movement.
