Storing Your Watch

*/?>

Storing your watchKeeping your watch in a safe place when it is off your wrist is crucial to ensuring safety and ability to maintain a precise and accurate ability to properly keep time. When not wearing your timepiece it is important to consider the following:

  • Do not store your watch near speakers, televisions, refrigerators, or other electronic devices. These products generate magnetic fields that can affect the functioning of your watch and can ultimately affecting its ability to properly keep the time. If you find that your watch does not keep time after being stored near electronic items, you can have the movement regulated by an authorized repair center to return your watch to its original specifications.
  • Keep your watch safe from contact with solvents, harsh oils and detergents, perfumes, cosmetics, alcohols, or any petroleum passed products. These products can and will cause the gaskets, case, bracelets, and/or straps to wear down more quickly.
  • A cool, dry environment is the optimal place to store your timepiece.
  • If you have an automatic watch, consider purchasing a winder to keep your watch(es) functioning when they are off of your wrist for long periods of time. Automatic watches will maintain their movement for several hours when removed from your wrist. If you have multiple watches, you should keep the watches you are not wearing on a winder so that they do not stop or become idle before you wear them again. Besides eliminating the need to set your watch again, keeping the watches moving will also optimize its performance over the long term.

About the repair
Thank you very much. It was nice to be able to process the repair by mail! It saved me the trip into the city when I did not have the time. The watch is as good as new and was received in advance of the estimated completion dates.

I want to sincerely thank you for your excellent repair of my Omega watch. I feel that it looks better than the day I bought it. Your attention to detail on the cosmetics of the case and bracelet restoration, only assures me that the same attention to detail went into the movement repair, bringing the watch back to life. I will recommend your services and if need be, use you again.
