Fossil maintenance and care tips


Make sure that the crown on your Fossil watch, which is used to change the hands/date, is properly pushed in and/or screwed at all times. This is highly important for your timepiece as this will prevent infiltration of water or dust, which could lead to internal damage.


Like most timepieces, a Fossil watch battery could last for up to three years. It’s important that when your battery runs out, you contact the experts at Repairs by Post for watch battery replacement. Did you know that dead battery cells can harm the watch movement if left unattended?


Watches are very sensitive instruments; therefore, it is important to avoid your watch from being exposed to rapid changes in temperature, both hot and cold.

Certain temperatures and movements can damage your timepiece. If your watch is if exposed to temperatures above 60 degrees it could damage the inside or outside of your watch, therefore, it is recommended to avoid leaving your watch in high-risk areas such as windows.


Don’t wear your watch during events where it could receive bumps or knocks. This could affect the inner workings of the mechanism and bracelet. Remove your Fossil watch and keep it in a safe place before undertaking any sporting activities or heavy physical work.


To guarantee effective water resistance, Fossil recommends that you do not expose your timepiece to hot water.

Fossil recommends that you clean your watch with a simple soft cloth and water only. It is advised not to submerge your watch underwater. Only do this if you watch is water-rated.

If your watch is exposed to saltwater use, make sure that you take the time to rinse it under tap water and wipe it dry with a soft cloth.

If your watch has a metal band, make sure that it is washed periodically. It is recommended that your watch is Cleaned with a soft brush that is dipped in mild, soapy water.

Wipe your watch dry with a soft cloth.

Make sure that your timepiece is always set in the closed position (otherwise known as the normal position. Make sure that you tighten the screw-lock crown down completely.


Watches are often used daily and quickly lose their shine to dirt and oils from skin, lotions, and other products. Their bands or bracelets are made of a variety of materials, and when removed, are easy to clean. Regular cleaning will keep the dirt to a minimum and prevent any unwanted odours.
