IWC maintenance and care tips

IWC BATTERY REPLACEMENT

Like most timepieces, batteries in IWC watches should last for up to three years. It’s essential that when your battery dies, 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? Contact a member of our team today for more information about IWC battery replacement.

IWC WATCH SERVICING

Make sure you are maintaining your IWC timepiece. When investing in a piece of luxury wristwear, ensure that your watch is continually accurate and in good working order to keep it in the best shape.

To optimise the performance of your IWC watch, regular upkeep and servicing are necessary. Repairs by Post recommended that you service your watch every 3-5 years. Maintenance can vary and will depend on the wear and tear your watch undergoes.

AVOID WATER AND DUST DAMAGE

Make sure that your IWC watches crown, which is used to change the hands/date, is properly pushed in and 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.

CHEMICAL REACTIONS

Your watch is precious; do not let it come into contact with chemicals, perfumes or liquids that may tarnish your steel IWC watch bracelet or damage the appearance of your IWC leather strap. You can wash your steel strap with lukewarm water if a damaging liquid comes into contact with it, but always let it dry naturally or use a soft cloth, never use a hairdryer or radiator.

TEMPERATURE

It’s important you do not expose your watch to sudden temperature changes. When your watch isn’t being worn, store it in a cool dark place such as a drawer. Do not expose your IWC to temperatures that exceed 60 degrees Celsius, or below 10 degrees Celsius as these can damage the workings of the watch. Should your watch suffer extreme temperature exposure; send it for professional watch repair.

Specific 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.

WATCH SHOCKS AND VIBRATIONS

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 IWC watch and keep it in a safe place before undertaking any sporting activities or heavy physical work.
