Here are some tips on how to maintain a watch to make sure that your watch will last for generations to come. With proper watch maintenance and protection, your watch will keep perfect time and may even become a family heirloom for your future generations.
1) Avoid Vibrations and Impact
This is a no brainer and is perhaps the most common cause for watches to stop working, you should always avoid vibrations or impact to the watch, for example from sports or simply just dropping your watch from the high ground.
2) Avoid Magnetic Fields
3) Rinse after Salt Water Exposure
4) Use Chronograph Pushers with Care
5) Regular maintenance service
You should send your watch for maintenance service every few years, usually they will dismantle the parts inside the watch, clean it, lubricate and reassemble it back. What you will have back is like a brand new watch.
