Daily Self Care
Always refer to the watch's instruction manual for care instructions and warranty information. Avoid water, unless your watch is waterproof. Even then, be mindful of your watch when it is exposed to large amounts of water. If water does make its way into your watch, you may see condensation. As soon as you see this symptom of water damage, take your watch to a professional. In fact, if you see any problems at all with your watch, get specialized help as soon as possible to avoid any further damage.
Routine Professional Care
One of the most important things you can do to maintain your watch is to get it regularly "tuned up." Like a car, watches have many working parts and should be regularly maintained. If your watch is not routinely cleaned and maintained, it can cease to function to its best ability sooner than you anticipated.
Regular maintenance of a wedding ring will help you to know that all of the jewels are intact and your ring is in top shape. Watches are the same way. Not only will your watch be cleaned and tuned, but any imperfections can be detected and fixed by a specialist before they get any worse. Being on top of your watch's maintenance and repairs is the best way to make your high-end watch last for a very long time.
With each trip to the specialist, your watch's battery can also be checked and, if needed, replaced. Nobody likes to wear a dead watch. This will help you to stay on top of your battery changes while keeping everything else in check, too. Steady maintenance will ensure that you are getting your money's worth from your watch.
