Tips for Caring for Your Watches

June 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 188

When you buy watches online, no matter how much money you decide to spend on them, you want to make sure they last for as long as possible. You want your watch to serve you faithfully for years, not just months. However, in order to achieve this long-lasting life for your watch, a little diligence and attention must be paid.

In other words, if you want it to last, you have to be responsible for its proper care, and maintenance.

If you aren't sure how to correctly care for your Timex or Casio watch, you are in luck. We have a few tips that will make extending its life easy and hassle free.

Tips for Caring for Your Watch

  • Temperature- You may not realize it, but the temperatures you expose your watch to could affect how well it works. While many watches from Timex and Casio are built to resist damage caused by low or high temperatures, some are not. If you wear your watch in a high heat environment for long periods at a time, you could be reducing the life of the watch's battery. Extremely cold temperatures could keep the watch from performing properly. Make sure you understand the features your watch has before purchasing watches online, and if they are not resistant to extreme temperatures, avoid wearing them in locations where temperatures are extreme.
  • Water Resistance- In general, many of the outdoor watches online from Timex and Casio are resistant to water. However, some are not. When you purchase your watch, make sure you look at the features it has to see whether it is water resistant. If it isn't, try to remember to take it off before you go near water. If it accidentally becomes wet, dry it as soon as possible to prevent as much damage as you can. Also, even if the watch is water resistant, you should wipe it off after swimming in a pool to remove any chlorine that may have accumulated on it.
  • Maintenance- If you truly want to extend the life of your new watch, make sure you have it serviced every three or four years to ensure it is working properly. While Casio and Timex watches generally live long past this routine maintenance time, consider this as a "check up" like you would receive from the doctor. Also, to keep the watch in tiptop shape, wipe it down at the end of every day with a soft clean cloth to remove perspiration, dust, and dirt that might keep it from functioning properly.
  • The Band- If you have a watch with a metal band, keep it out of water and clear of dirt may be all you need to do to prevent any damage from occurring during its lifetime. However, if you buy watches online with leather straps, additional care must be taken. You should never expose a watch with a leather band to water, as this can weaken the band and cause it to tear. Women wearing watches with leather bands should be particularly careful, especially when putting on perfume. Perfume can damage leather and cause it to crack and break. If you want to spray perfume on your wrists, spray it prior to putting the watch on your wrist and allow it to dry to reduce the amount of damage you cause to the leather.

When you purchase watches online, you want them to last for a lifetime. In order to ensure they do, however, proper maintenance is a must. Use these tips to ensure they are taken care of and can keep time for years to come.
