Ensuring Your Watch’s Water Resistance

*/?>

Ensuring your watch's water resistanceMost watches today offer some level of water resistance. Although no watch is truly water proof, some are capable of being submerged in water to various depths. To ensure that your watch will continue to perform as it should while still maintaining its water resistance, you should consider the following tips:

  • Make sure that your watch’s crown and stem are fully secured and completely screwed down to prevent any water, moisture, or even dust from making its way into your watch’s movement. Be careful not to over tighten the crown, which can strip the screws and allow moisture to enter the case.
  • If you subject your watch to water regularly, be sure to have it checked by an authorized service center periodically to ensure that all gaskets (which wear down naturally over time) are working properly. Periodic inexpensive maintenance can prevent future expensive problems.
  • Make sure that your watch is pressure tested every time the case is opened to perform any inspection or service to test for potential leaks and its ability to maintain the manufacturer’s original pressure standards. If you have your battery changed at an inexpensive mall location, they will not usually pressure test the watch or make sure that it is sealed.

Today’s watches can maintain their water resistance for generations if you take proper care of the watch and make sure to complete some periodic preventive maintenance. Just like changing the oil and filter in your car, your watch requires periodic maintenance to maintain water resistance to its original manufacturer’s specifications.

I had the battery of my Raymond Weil watch changed in one of the repair shops here in the city of Turlock, CA. It worked for only two days and then it just quit. I did my research online to have my watch repaired by an expert of the brand and that’s where I learned about Govberg Watch Repair. My watch is functioning perfectly and I can say that they really did a great job. I would highly recommend Govberg Watch Repair to anyone with any brand of watch. Thank you very much!
