Cleaning the watch strap or bracelet

Straps and bracelets are an integral component of watches. They are made from a wide variety of materials: from traditional metal and leather to ceramics, plastic, silicone, etc.

And the point is not only that it loses its appearance, but also because of pollution, especially from the inside , it creates the most favorable conditions for the propagation of harmful microorganisms. So that the strap / bracelet can be cleaned in the most inconvenient places for access, it must be removed from the watch.

  • The ceramic bracelet on the watch is the easiest to clean – just wipe it with a soft cloth moistened with liquid for washing glasses, it will be like new.
  • It is recommended to clean the leather strap on the watch with a cotton pad soaked in soapy water, to which several drops of ammonia have been added, after which the soapy residue is removed with a damp cloth. The silicone strap / bracelet is also cleaned with the same solution. It is not recommended to soak the leather strap in the solution, and also to clean it with gasoline or alcohol. If the skin on the strap is light, and even more so white, it is cleaned with a mixture of milk and egg white.
  • For plastic, rubber and fabric straps / bracelets, it is recommended to clean with toothpaste or a solution of laundry soap.
  • Stainless steel watches usually have a stainless steel bracelet, which is cleaned with a mixture of table vinegar and soda (vinegar can be replaced with ammonia). The silver bracelet is cleaned with the same solution. This can also be done with ordinary shampoo or a mild detergent for dishes. Although the bracelet is stainless, it must be wiped dry with a dry cotton cloth or microfiber.
  • A gold bracelet is not steel, from constant wear it can become dull and become contaminated by sweat and grease , which pores on the hand secrete. It can not be cleaned with any aqueous solutions – only a mechanical cleaning method using baby powder, powdered chalk or powder. They are applied to a dry flannel , the bracelet is polished on both sides, and then wiped with a dry cloth.

How to choose a watch for a man

Watches made for a business dress code usually have a simple and elegant look. Their case is made of metal, and the strap is made of leather. A round watch is considered to be classic, but this is not a panacea. As in the world of men’s fashion, black is more formal than brown. The white dial is more classic and therefore more suitable for a business dress code. Everything added to the watch, except for the three hands that show seconds, minutes and hours, are superfluous elements. For example, functions such as a stopwatch, calendar, backlight, and so on can be added to a watch. The maximum that you need to have in a classic watch is the day of the month, no more.

Which watch is right for you depends on what lifestyle you have, what social status you occupy, and of course what you like best. If you are a business person and a classic men’s suit is your work wear, then you should choose a leather strap. Try to choose the color of the leather strap for the rest of the details of clothing and accessories. There is no strict rule here, as in the combination of leather shoes and a belt on a belt, however, if you have the opportunity to wear a watch with a brown strap under brown shoes and a belt, this will not be superfluous.

So, you have decided that you need a watch. You go to the store and are surprised to see the picture that very similar watches can cost differently. The difference can reach several orders of magnitude. There is an explanation for this. When buying a watch, you pay for the following items:

  • mastery of the watchmaker;
  • aesthetics
  • watch or brand history
  • prestige.

Note that you do not pay for the watch as such, but for the image. According to some reports, only 20-25% of the cost of watches is direct manufacturing costs (material, the work of the master), everything else is marketing, the brand name and its history. Therefore, the difference between a watch for $ 100 and for $ 1000 is to a greater extent the brand value, not the quality of the watch.

What else to know when buying.

Mechanical watches always more “classic” than quartz watches. Of course, quartz watches are more accurate, but the accuracy in the watch is not the main thing (we figured this out earlier). The very fact that on your hand is a complex mechanism that moves thanks to physics, not the battery, makes the watch a more stylish accessory than, for example, a mobile phone (even if it is an expensive phone).

Distinguish watches by their set of functions. The more functions in the watch, in addition to the main one – displaying the time on the dial, the more informal the clock. Sports watches – only for casual style and for a suit can be worn only if you want to show a rebellious character … or lack of taste.

If you wear a watch on a regular basis, then take a look at the watch with a car factory. When the hand moves, the pendulum moves in the clock, which automatically starts the clock. The only negative in such a watch is accuracy. The more often you wave your hand, the faster they go. Have to let the clock down regularly.

Sapphire crystal is stronger and less susceptible to scratches than mineral or plastic. As a rule, the cost of sapphire watches starts from $ 400 – $ 500.

Over the past 50 years, watches have become smaller, but recently, it has become fashionable to wear watches the size of a desktop alarm clock. Be more practical, and choose the size of the watch according to the size of your wrist. Too large a dial on a thin hand looks ridiculous; too small watches on a large hand do not look serious. Try on a watch, adjust the strap so that it hardly rotates on your wrist and look at the harmony of your hand and watch.

Watch recommendations

If you consider watches as an accessory that defines your classic business style, then it is better to look at the brands that are primarily engaged in the manufacture of watches, and not in addition to clothing, perfume or cars.

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.
