How to charge automatic watches

As you may already know, automatic watches, or those that rely on gears and other mechanisms, are back stronger than ever. Their main characteristic is that they are self-winding, as they have an internal weight that rotates or winds them with the movement of the arm.

The energy generated is then transferred to an internal reserve which keeps the watch running. In this way, automatic watches do not need batteries and are considered to use clean energy. 

However, even if it is not necessary to do so every day, it is advisable to wind and charge automatic watches from time to time to ensure that they run accurately and extend their service life.

4 tips for maintaining your automatic watches and extending their service life to the maximum

In addition to showing you how to charge automatic watches, there are a series of recommendations that we should give you to extend their useful life as much as possible. 

How to charge automatic watches

First, cleanliness is critical. Prevent dust, dirt, and sweat from accumulating by wiping with 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 do not subject them to extreme temperatures, as they have oil inside them and this could affect their viscosity and, consequently, their internal mechanism. Watch out for magnetic fields and do not store your watches or bring them close to magnets. 

Thirdly, it is always recommended to keep automatic watches always running, with the crowns tightly closed. It is also recommended not to wear them when sleeping. 

Finally, we also recommend regular visits to a watchmaker for peace of mind. These do not necessarily have to be frequent, but it is sufficient to take them every 3 or 4 years.
