7 Quick Tips for Wearing a Watch in the Summer

1. Do not wear leather or alligator straps

  • Sweat will stain straps (leather could get expensive )
  • Stick with the bracelet, NATO, or perlon straps

 

2. Get your watch pressure tested

  • Water inside can affect the movement
  • Keep watch water resistant
  • No moisture under crystal

 

3. Do not wear a watch with plating

  • Oils in skin can affect the plating
  • Wearing can occur

 

4. Stay away from copper or bronze case watches

  • Again oils can react with the metals 
  • Can cause premature aging of the case

 

5. If you have your watch on a bracelet, slightly adjust it

  • Add a link or expand clasp slightly
  • Heat causes your wrist to swell making for an uncomfortable fit

 

6. Do not store your watch after wearing it in direct sunlight

  • Doing this can cause oils inside the watch to dry

 

7. Quick rinse

  • Luke warm water
  • Wash off oils, salts, or whatever may get on your watch that day
