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.

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.

There are three main types of mechanisms for watches: mechanical, electromechanical (quartz) and electronic.

Mechanical watches. The mechanism of such a watch drives a tightly wound spring. The spring drives the pendulum, which at regular intervals act on the wheel clockwork. With this mechanism, the arrows on the dial begin to move. In mechanical watches, only arrows are used for counting time. The mechanical watch must be wound up periodically in order to tighten the untwisted spring. A feature of mechanical watches is the uneven speed of unwinding of the spring. Due to this feature, the watch may be in a hurry or late. For mechanical watches there is an acceptable scale of accuracy accuracy. Officially, it ranges from +40 to -20 seconds per day. In order to reduce this error, manufacturers supply their models with an additional automatic winding function. This mechanism allows you to automatically tighten the springs when the clock is oscillating. The automatic winding mechanism is useless with sedentary work. The disadvantage of this function is the fact that in order to implement the automatic winding mechanism, it is necessary to make the watch more massive and heavy. Repair of the automatic winding mechanism is very complicated and will cost the owner of such watches a decent amount. The cost of a mechanical watch is usually higher than that of a quartz watch, since mechanical watches require fine manual tuning during assembly. While most of the manufacturing of parts and the assembly of the quartz watch mechanism is entrusted to automation. that to implement the automatic winding mechanism, it is necessary to make the watch more massive and heavy.

Quartz (electronic) watches. Powered by battery. Instead of a pendulum, a quartz crystal is used. An electronic generator based on a quartz crystal delivers stable pulses to a stepper motor, which drives the wheel mechanism of the watch. He, in turn, moves the hands on the dial. Various models of quartz watches can have both a clock mechanism for visual display of time and a digital display. Compared to mechanical watches, quartz watches have higher accuracy. The official margin of error for quartz watches is from +20 to -20 seconds per month. Such watches do not need winding. Only occasionally change the battery. If for you the most important thing in a watch is the accuracy of its movement, then it is better to choose a quartz watch.

Digital Watch. An electronic watch is a quartz watch with a digital display. In them, the pulses of the generator are converted into signals that are displayed on the clock display as seconds and minutes changing on the dial. A hybrid option is also possible, when along with a digital display, time is indicated by arrows. If the electronic clock is in a hurry or behind, you can correct the readings by installing new ones, but the oscillations of the generator will remain the same, only in some models the correction of the readings entails a change in the oscillation frequency.
