Think about where you will wear your new luxury watch

A world time function, for example, can be very useful for someone who travels to different countries or does business abroad. An elegant dress watch is appropriate for formal occasions. Some styles provide greater protection against damage and wear. You will also find higher levels of magnetic, corrosive and water resistance. These fall generally under the category of tool watches. Consider how big your watch is and what type of strap it will fit on your wrist. You can choose from leather, rubber, fabric, or a metal bracelet. Each has its own characteristics.

Watch enthusiasts appreciate mechanical calibres that preserve traditional clockwork technology more. But, there are some advantages to battery-powered quartz movements. Manual-winding watches need to be wound daily, while automatics need to be wound less often if they are worn every day. They will eventually stop working and need to be wound and reset again. Quartz is not as reliable as mechanical, but it does not require any input from the wearer. It doesn’t have to be reset (until the battery is changed).

How do you care for your luxury watch

It’s time for you to bring your luxury watch home after you have purchased and paid for it. You want it to look as good as new for as long as you can. Here are some tips to help you do that.

Remember to use heat, water and magnets

Be aware of the limitations of your luxury watch. It may be too sensitive to water depths or pressures greater than the one it was designed for. As the gaskets in your watch deteriorate, so does its water resistance. This is especially true if the watch is regularly exposed to heat and water. Movement components can be damaged by heat, knocks, or abrupt temperature changes. Avoid heat sources in general, and hot water situations like a sauna or hot bath. (Steam can penetrate where cold water cannot. Avoiding magnetic fields in close proximity to your luxury watch can negatively impact its accuracy. Magnetism, unless anti-magnetic protection has been included, can cause your luxury watch to lose or gain time or even stop completely.

Keep It Clean

Clean your luxury watch regularly to remove dust and dirt. To prevent corrosion of metal parts, make sure to clean your luxury watch after it has been worn in salt water. To reach difficult-to-reach areas, such as between metal bracelet links, use a soft, damp cloth, a toothbrush and a cotton buds. Avoid getting the leather strap wet as it can cause damage. Avoid chemicals. Cleaning products and perfumes don’t go well with luxury watches.

Keep it up

It is important to keep mechanical movements running on a regular basis. Moving parts can become clogged up when oil dries. Your manual-winding luxury timepiece should be wound regularly. Don’t overwind your luxury watch – stop when the crown feels stiff. Automatics cannot be overwound, but they do require periodic winding depending on the activity. If you do decide to use a watchwinder, be careful not to over-wind the movement. Each automatic has a maximum number of revolutions, also known as turns per day (TPD).

Get it serviced

Your luxury watch should be serviced at least once every three to five year. The movement components must be cleaned and lubricants should be reapplied. Water resistance seals need to also been replaced. To ensure water tightness, make sure that the case has been professionally resealed. You should not open your luxury watch or attempt to modify it unless you are an expert watchmaker.
