Automatic watches: what maintenance tasks should you consider?

Luxury Watches


Automatic watches are exclusive, delicate products that distinguish you from the majority. For many they represent authentic treasures, manufactured by hand and that require very specific maintenance tasks to work properly. The purpose of this post is to show you everything you need to know about it and give you four tips on the best way to perform such maintenance.

As you know, automatic watches or those that depend on gears and other mechanisms have returned with more force than ever. They are loaded alone as they have an internal weight that winds them up with arm movement. The generated energy is then transferred to an internal reserve that keeps the clock running. They do not need batteries and are considered to use clean energy. Although it is not necessary to do it every day, it is advisable to wind them up and charge the automatic watches regularly, so that they work accurately and extend their useful life.

Other tips for the maintenance of your automatic watches and to extend their useful life to the maximum

There are a number of recommendations that we must give to maximize the life of your automatic watches. First of all, cleaning is very important. Avoid accumulating dust, dirt and sweat by wiping a soft dry cloth or, if necessary, a damp cloth with fresh water. Never, under any circumstances, use chemicals or solvents.

On the other hand, you should avoid the vibrations produced by some sports and not subject them to extreme temperatures, since they have oil inside and this could affect their viscosity, and consequently, their inner mechanism. Keep an eye on the magnetic fields and do not store your watches or bring them close to magnets. Always keep them going, with the crowns tightly closed and try not to sleep with them. Finally, you should make regular visits to a watchmaker every 3 or 4 years, for greater peace of mind. We hope we have helped you!
