Ceramic Watch Care
1. BASIC WATCH CARE
- Ceramic watches can be absolutely beautiful choices for a timepiece. A lot of celebrities wear these kinds of watches because of their beauty. They consist of ceramic bodies and bezels and a scratch resistant coating on the crown. But ceramic watches still need to be cared for properly to keep from any damage. To clean a ceramic watch and make it look brand new, you can sweep the watch with a soft cloth to get rid of excess dirt. Then, using a non-abrasive cleaner, you can wipe the crown, band and back of the case. Dry the watch with a new, dry cloth.
- Ceramic watches are highly scratch resistant, which makes them a great choice for someone who is really active or is going to wear the piece on a daily basis. In general though, you should avoid chemicals, reduce the exposure to heat and radiation, and of course keep it out of direct contact with water. Water resistant doesn’t equal water proof, so while a drop or two is OK, be careful if you are washing dishes or something similar. It’s better to take the watch off first before continuing. You’ll see your watch will last that much longer.
- It is important to avoid the following conditions: extreme heat or cold, as well as prolonged periods of exposure to direct sunlight, exposure to wet conditions that exceed your timepiece’s water rating.
- Your timepiece should not be affected by magnetic fields generated by household items such as televisions and stereos, but avoidance of other strong electric fields or static electricity is advised.
- It is also important to avoid extreme shock or impact.
- Don’t wind the watch backwards when setting the time.
- Clean your timepiece with a soft cloth and water only. Do not submerge it.
- After any saltwater use, your timepiece should be rinsed clean and dried with a soft cloth.
- We recommend to exchange the battery every ½ or 2 years to avoid the watch’s mechanism.
2. LEATHER STRAP CARE
- The straps are made from soft calf leather using natural dyes, contact with direct heat, water or solvents should be avoided.
- To prevent fading, keep them out of prolonged direct sunlight.
- If your strap is wet, gently dry it carefully with a cloth and do not let it dry under the sun or next to heating.
- Clean leather with the use of a damp cloth and a mild leather cleaner. Sponge gently until all grime and stains are absorbed. Please do not use water to clean your band as this can cause damage to the leather.
