MONTBLANC MAINTENANCE TIPS

WATER RESISTANCE

Montblanc recommend that owners have their watch tested for water resistance at least every three years. Failing to do his might lead to the infiltration of water or condensation which will be detrimental to the movement.

After your watch comes into contact with chlorine or salt water you should clean it with lukewarm fresh water and dry with a soft cloth, or leave it to air dry. Chlorine and salt water can cause your delicate watch to corrode.  We specialise in watch refurbishment should your timepiece suffer severe damage.

MAGNETISATION

The modern world has led to magnets being everywhere, including TVs, radios and airport security scanners. If you suspect your watch is magnetised send it to our watch repair company for confirmation and remedy.

Quartz watches will only be affected by magnetic fields for a few seconds, but mechanical watches can suffer long term damage.  Our Montblanc service center is fitted with special machines to demagnetise your timepiece.

Though Montblanc are relatively new on the scene compared to other watch brands, their traditional watch making elements echo that of antique movements. We are skilled at restoring vintage watches and Repairs by Post are specialists in mechanical to quartz conversion. Do you have a vintage watch that no longer works? A conversion could be the thing to bring it back to life and allow you to it enjoy it once more. Once converted, you will have peace of mind that we are experts in quartz watch repair.

WINDING YOUR MONTBLANC WATCH

  • If you have not worn your automatic or manually-wound watch for a while, wind it up fully by turning the crown twenty times.
  • In order to ensure the performance of your manually-wound mechanical watch, Montblanc advise owners to wind the crown once a day, preferably at the same time.
  • If you feel resistance, stop winding.
  • Do not change the hour or date between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. This is when the date changes and winding during these times may cause a damage of the mechanism.

TEMPERATURE SHOCKS

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. Your watch should not be exposed 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.

CHEMICAL REACTIONS

Your watch is precious; do not let it come into contact with chemicals, perfumes or liquids that may tarnish your steel Montblanc watch bracelet or damage the appearance of your Montblanc 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.

If damage occurs send it to our expert team for Montblanc watch strap repair or replacement.

With just under twenty years in the luxury timepiece game, Montblanc may be a relative newcomer, but the brand’s long-running philosophy of master craftsmanship allowed them to transition into the world of horology with ease.
