Tips on Keeping your watch Water Resistant

  • Take off your water-resistant watch prior to showering or washing dishes. Soap reduces the surface tension of water and increases the chances the water can get past the seals.
  • Once a year, have your watch's water resistance checked and have any bad seals/gaskets replaced.
  • If you notice condensation under the crystal or on the dial of the watch, take it to a watchmaker immediately.
  • If your watch has a screwdown crown, make sure it is screwed down before swimming of getting it wet.
  • Always rinse your watch in tap water after swimming in chlorinated water or in the sea.
