HOW TO KEEP YOUR WATCH REAPAIR IN WORKING ORDER

In order to reduce the likelihood of your watch needing repaired we recommend it is kept away from movements that may cause shock. Each watch is designed to resist impact but occasions where it may come under excess stress should be avoided. This is because shock may damage its appearance and cause wear in the delicate inner components. If damage occurs we can offer strap replacement,watch polishing and all watch repairs UK at Repairs By Post.

Magnetic fields can have a detrimental impact on your watch, if you leave your watch near strong magnetic fields such as speakers, refrigerators and magnets it may affect its performance. It’s also recommended that your watch is taken off when entering a body scanner at the airport. We offer watch repairs London  and Watch replacement parts London to remedy these problems if they occur.

HOW CAN I TELL IF MY MECHANICAL WATCH IS MAGNETISED?

  • Place your watch near a traditional compass
  • If the needle starts to move, it’s magnetised
  • Send your watch to Repairs by Post for inspection

A quartz watch will only be affected temporarily by magnetic fields and will work again once out of range. However, a mechanical watch may stop working completely so should always be kept at least 5cm away from magnetic devices.

OTHER WAYS TO REDUCE DAMAGE TO YOUR TIME PIECE

To look after your watch you should;

  • Keep away from extreme temperatures, a sharp change in temperature can cause condensation underneath the crystal.
  • Keep out of strong direct sunlight; this can damage the movement if exposed to temperatures above 60 degrees.
  • Chemical products may corrode the water resistant gaskets and damage the aesthetic of your timepiece.
  • Sand has small minerals in it which can scratch the sapphire crystal or steel bracelet on your watch.
  • If you’re going to be near water ensure the crown is fully pushed in and avoid the leather strap touching water as this may damage it. We offer watch strap replacement should damage occur. We can offer  crown replacement if there is any damage sustained.
