How to clean your watch at home
The main rule when cleaning the watch is not to use chemicals, as they can ruin the mechanism of the device or scratch the glass of the case, as well as cause allergies. Instead, use the usual means at hand:
- clean and soft napkins;
- a toothbrush with soft bristles;
First, with a toothpick, you need to clean those areas that the napkin cannot penetrate. These include body parts, bracelet links and other small parts. When working with a toothpick, do not make sudden movements, otherwise it will break and become stuck in the watch.
If the watch is waterproof, then it can be safely cleaned with a dampened toothbrush and water. For this procedure, laundry or baby soap is suitable. If the watch is marked with water resistant or water permeability below 50 m, it is best not to wet it, but simply wipe it with a damp cloth.
As for expensive watches that contain gold or silver, they are not cleaned with hard and rough brushes. To do this, it is better to use soft napkins or rags, and instead of soap – alcohol or wine vinegar. They can also be wiped with special cleaning agents.
How to clean the watch strap
Use a soft toothbrush to remove dirt from a stainless steel or rubber strap. Previously, it needs to be wet and soaped. You need to clean the strap so that splashes of water do not get on the dial. Metal and rubber straps are cleaned in the same way. Wipe leather, silver and gold straps with a damp soft cloth with the addition of a special tool.
After all the procedures, the watch is left to dry for a couple of minutes, and then before installation, wipe it again with a dry soft towel.
Remember that one cleaning is not enough for a long preservation of the functionality and appearance of the watch. Store time measuring instruments in a special box, especially if they contain noble metals. Do not leave them in the open air, as gold or silver watches are afraid of direct sunlight. Remember to take off your watch before taking a bath or shower.
How to choose a watch for men?
All watches are also divided into women’s watches, men’s watches and universal. Representatives of any gender can wear a universal option, but more often models with characteristic features of a particular category are purchased to emphasize their status.
Generally men’s watch models have a heavier case, wide strap or bracelet. The material for them is often platinum, gold or steel. Plain bracelet and case do not attract attention, unlike the dial. As a rule, it is distinguished by its complexity and the presence of additional elements on it. Shock-resistant self-winding models are popular.
If you want to give a man a watch, with the expectation that he wears their daily lives, it is best in this case to make your choice in favor of mechanical models. At the same time, if you need to give a watch for fishing, tourism, sports and other active forms of life, then it is best to choose a quartz watch.
