The frequency of cleaning the watch depends on the intensity of its use. Actively operated models must be cleaned once a week. The cleaning procedure should be taken seriously, improper actions will lead to damage to the mechanism. In the work you will need:

  • Paper, napkins – used to wipe the case, glass.
  • Soap, toothpaste are universal detergents.
  • Toothpicks, tweezers – allow you to work with small parts.
  • Ethyl alcohol – acts as a degreaser.

Before proceeding with cleaning, you must completely disassemble the device. Remember the location of parts, carefully handle the elements of the mechanism.

Next, clean the parts. Wet parts of the outdoor product must be thoroughly dried. The assembly of the inside provides for the lubrication of the main elements. Standard oil is used, you can purchase the product in specialized stores.

Cleaning the watch does not take much time, effort, every user can perform the procedure. The main thing is to adhere to special rules. We recommend that you find instructions, read the features of the model, pay special attention to small details. The slightest mistake can lead to breakage.

Internal mechanism

Cleaning the internal mechanism differs from other procedures. One improper movement can damage the mechanism. In the middle of the device there are many small parts that require maximum attention. The processing process of the internal mechanism:

  • Gently takes out the inside.
  • Use tweezers for small parts.
  • We immerse the elements of the wrist product in an alcohol solution for a couple of minutes.
  • We wipe the parts with a dry cloth and paper.
  • We assemble the device back, following the instructions.

The procedure must be carried out for details such as balance, anchor fork, winding wheel, dial hands. Clean the watch dial from dust, grease, and dirt.

Polishing watches

The cleaning process involves polishing the accessory. The procedure will make it possible to give the device a spectacular appearance. Polishing is done for glass. This element of the wrist product is constantly dirty, scratches appear. Polishing the glass will allow the device to return to its previous form.

Before processing, it is necessary to determine the type of glass. For mineral products, a polished wheel is ideal. This is a special device that allows you to eliminate scratches, dirt, minor damage. You will need additional elements: cotton pads, alcohol solution, paste.

Cleaning and polishing watches with plastic glasses requires an abrasive. Toothpaste is ideal. It is necessary to remove the glass, this will allow you to thoroughly wipe the product. Perform the procedure with a damp cloth. Cleaning is simple, does not take much time, effort. It is problematic to process sapphire crystal. The product feature is stiffness and fragility. Improper movement will result in instant damage.

Main recommendations to choose men’s watches

  • Watch’s tyles

The choice of men’s watches is a scrupulous affair, which suggests first thinking over what exactly a useful accessory is for. If you like the classic, then it is better to dwell on analog devices or smart watches with a traditional design. For fans of an active lifestyle and lovers of newfangled gadgets, both digital products and all non-traditional varieties of the accessory are suitable.

  • Watch’s durability

Durability of the device depends on the product brand. Therefore, choosing an accessory, you need to focus on the prestige of the company, recognition, annual turnover and the life of the gadget.

  • Well known brands

It is not easy to choose a men’s watch with so many brands, but it is also known that each brand has its own characteristics, both in design and in the filling of devices. Therefore, it makes sense to trust companies that have already earned the trust of users.

  • Choice of housing

The material from which the watch is made affects not only the appearance, but also its endurance, i.e. the duration of the wear of the products.

  • Watch’s strap selection

How the watch will look on your hand and whether it will be comfortable to wear depends on the width and length of the strap. A fixture that is well-adjusted in length will not allow the appliance to hang or press.

In addition to the usual straps, the watch can be attached with metal bracelets. In this case, so that the product fits perfectly, you can remove the extra links, or vice versa, add. In order for the strap to become a successful addition to the watch, you need to know the size of the wrist and decide what style the product should be in.

The main types of watches: mechanics and quartz

All watches according to the principle of the clockwork are divided into:

  1. mechanical – classic (with a manual spring winding, which must be performed once a day or three) or with automatic winding. Mechanical watches from well-known manufacturers are considered a more prestigious accessory than quartz watches in the same price category. The service life of high-quality mechanical watches is about 50 years.
  2. quartz – operating on quartz crystals, which, when current flows from the battery, give out pulses with a certain frequency. They are divided into analog (arrow) and digital – depending on how the information is presented to the user. A special case of quartz watches is electronic – they work on the same principle, but the information in them is reflected on a digital display (and sometimes in the form of arrows).

Due to the small size of the mechanism, mechanical watches can take very elegant forms, which are especially appreciated by sophisticated elegant women. Dear chronometers allow you to measure time periods in fractions of a second, although, by and large, this does not play a practical role for the average layman. Manual winding mechanics have a delicate complex mechanism, consisting of many parts, very sensitive to shocks and shocks. For those who often forget about the daily need to start their watches, self-winding models are recommended – the internal rotor of the mechanism, when moving the hand, transfers its vibrations to the movement of the rotating spring mechanism.

Any mechanical watch reacts to magnetic fields, requires periodic cleanings and adjustments, usually carried out every few years. Many people love classical mechanics for the smoothness of the arrows, the characteristic “ticking” and beauty – in modern models, designers often include skeletons that allow the transparent elements of the case to see the mechanism. Chronometers usually call watches of a certain degree of accuracy , confirmed by a certificate of the Swiss Chamber of Weights and Measures, which is why Swiss watches are considered a recognized icon of accuracy.

Compared to mechanical watches, quartz watches have a higher level of accuracy and resistance to adverse external influences (shock, falling, shaking, etc.). The service life of the mechanisms themselves in both types of watches is quite comparable – the wear of the base parts is the same, and a high-quality quartz battery lasts up to 10 years. But functionally quartz watches are in many ways superior to mechanical ones – many models not only show full-time, but also the current date, allow you to work with the calendar and set an alarm.

An alternative to the usual batteries in quartz movements can be automatic winding and solar panels (photocells). The mechanical movement of the hand while walking is converted into electrical energy sufficient to automatically recharge the battery – automatic winding is very convenient, because usually a person is in a state of constant movement. Photocells are a natural charge of hours from the generated solar energy: both the simple decision, and environmentally friendly.
