If you're a watch lover, you know that caring for your men’s watch is just as important as the way you care for yourself.
It's not just about keeping it in good condition. it's about keeping it with you and making sure that it's always there when you need it.
We all have those moments where we find ourselves looking down at our wrist, wondering if there's anything more that can be done to keep our men’s watch in top form. But the truth is, there are plenty of things we can do and they don't require any special skills or equipment. All it takes is some time and attention.
So don't worry, here are simple steps you can take to take care of your men’s watch it once and for all.
Men’s watches are a classic and timeless accessory that can be worn with any outfit. They're a great way to add some sophistication to any wardrobe, while also telling the time in style.
These amazing timepieces are built to last, and they look great on every wrist. But if you want them to continue to run at peak performance and keep looking good, you need to learn how to care for your men’s watch.
Avoid extreme shocks and knocks
Men’s watches are made to be durable and tough, but they can still be damaged by abuse. If you're going to be doing any kind of rigorous activity with your watch, make sure that it's well secured on your wrist so that it doesn't fall off or get damaged.
Extreme shocks and knocks can cause damage to the inner workings of your watch, which can lead to expensive repairs down the road. If you're planning on doing anything particularly physical, take off your watch and store it safely in a drawer, travel bag, box or pocket until you're done playing around.
Do you need to take it of before showering or swimming?
Taking off your men’s watch before showering or swimming is not necessary if you have a SÖNER, but if you don't have one, a good way to protect it is to remove it before.
If you take a shower or go swimming with a watch not water resistant enough, water can get into its inner workings, which will damage the watch over time and may even cause rusting or corrosion on the metal components inside the watch.
If you are not sure if your watch can handle such a treatment the best thing to do is simply remove the watch before showering or going for a swim. That way you don't risk damaging the watch by water splashing onto it while washing hands or taking a shower.
Also, make sure you avoid exposing your men’s watch to extreme temperatures; this can cause condensation which could damage components like lubricants or springs.
If your men’s watch has gotten wet or has been exposed to high temperatures (or both.), wipe it down with a clean cloth and dry it immediately afterward.
Clean the watch with a soft cloth
The cleanliness of your men’s watch can be determined by how clean its glass is. You should always clean the glass with a soft microfiber cloth.
This will prevent any dust particles from getting into the inner parts of the watch and causing damage later on in time.
Wipe the case and bracelet to remove sweat and dirt. Most of the time this can be done with a damp cloth.
Polishing is another way to keep your men’s watch looking great. Use a polishing cloth, or for better results try using a jewelry cleaner with a soft microfiber cloth. This will help preserve the finish of your men’s watch.
You can also remove any dust from the case by blowing on it with compressed air.
Protect your watch when you are not using it
The best way to take care of your men’s watch is to keep it in a box (if you have a SÖNER you also have a velvet travel pouch) when you are not wearing it. This will prevent the watch from getting scratched or damaged. It also prevents dust from settling on the watch's surface. This will also provide protection from scratches and dents that may occur during transportation.
This will also avoid exposure of your men’s watch to direct sunlight or extreme temperature changes as these can cause damage to the watch's casing and other parts of its body, which could result in malfunctioning or damage due to exposure to moisture or other elements that may be harmful to some models (such as leather straps).
Don't use harsh chemicals to clean your watch
A men’s watch is a work of art, and like all works of art, it needs to be treated with care and respect.
To keep your men’s watch in tip-top shape, make sure that you don't use harsh chemicals to clean it. This can cause damage to the leather band and other parts. Instead, we recommend using a soft cloth to wipe down the watch every few months. Also, if you're going to be wearing your men’s watch in the pool or ocean, make sure that it's waterproof.
