How to maintain the mechanical watch movement
Watches are one of the most important tools in our lives, and many people wear them while traveling. Mechanical watches are the most valuable types of watches. Mechanical watches, particularly mechanical watch movements, are more careful than quartz watches while using.
- Normal wear to avoid vibration
Only with an appropriate amount of activity can it continue to wind and run normally (the wearer may walk slowly when the activity is small, which is a normal phenomenon. Although the watch is shockproof, it is easy to break the tip of the balance shaft or the journal of the wheel train when the external impact is strong, and it can also cause the vibration of the fast and slow hands to affect the travel time. When using it for the first time, please rotate the crown 20-30 times to make the mainspring initially wound).
- Avoid magnetization
Although the watch is made of nonmagnetic materials that are not easily magnetized, the magnetic field, such as the magnetic buckle on the TV, next to the radio speaker, backpack, or purse, has a significant impact on the travel time.
- waterproof watch
Try not to wear the watch while swimming or washing clothes. When it rains or gets wet, do not pull out the crown to adjust the watch; instead, dry it immediately.
Sea water is even more impenetrable. Even if the watch is marked waterproof, it can only be guaranteed waterproof for one year because the waterproof ring of the watch will be tired after a year of wear and tear, as well as various unavoidable external factors such as sweat and dust, so the waterproof ring must be replaced after one year; otherwise, the waterproof function will be lost.
- watch cleaning
Generally speaking,3-5 years of oil washing is determined by the following factors:
1.The watch's seal
2.The watch's wearing degree (wear degree)
3.A quartz watch can prolong the oil-washing cycle.
4.Men's watches or pocket watches may be thinner, and the oil washing cycle for women's watches may be longer.
- Long-term storage of unused watches
The oil on the watch will deteriorate if it is not stored in a suitcase with mothballs or health balls, and the time will be inaccurate.It needs to be wound or worn to ensure flexible internal activities every month.
