BEGINNERS GUIDE TO SWATCH WATCH CARE & MAINTENANCE.
HERE ARE 10 FACTS ABOUT SWATCH WATCHES YOU SHOULD KNOW.
THERE ARE OVER 7,000+ DIFFERENT MODELS IN THE SWATCH WATCH RANGE.
1. :- Battery Change
When changing the battery, you should be very careful to avoid the battery contacts, as any sort of damage could affect the movements working, or stop the watch working completely.
2. :- Changing the Day or Date
It is very important to bear in mind when altering the dates / days is that SWATCH WATCHES change date anytime between 12 midnight and approximately 4am. So NEVER adjust the date or day function during this period as it could prevent the watch from working.
3. :- Routine Cleaning
We have found the best and most effective way of cleaning all water resistant SWATCH WATCH cases is to use a soft (children's) toothbrush dipped in tepid mild soapy water and a soft cloth for drying.
4. :- Face Crystal Repair
As all SWATCH WATCH owners no to their cost. Plastic watch crystals scratch very easily with the result that they soon look unattractive. Replacement of the crystal is not normally possible, especially when watches have sealed plastic cases like SWATCH WATCHES, watch owners the world over suffer from this sort of problem. But now thanks to PolyWatch a new type of special purpose polishing paste offers an extraordinarily simple solution. You can remove scratches rapidly and cheaply from the plastic watch crystal by carrying out an easy to follow do-it-yourself procedure.
5. :- Water- Resistance
This does not mean the same as WATERPROOF. Believe it or not even an extra sharp tap, drop, blow, knock or even just changing the battery can cause your SWATCH WATCH to lose some, if not the majority of its stated water resistance and the first you will know about it is the face steaming up with condensation. So if you plan on using your SWATCH WATCH under water for swimming, or more importantly showering and bathing, it is important to have the water resistance checked. But a far easier solution is just to take it off and avoid any doubt.
6. :- Swimming in the Sea
If you are brave and go swimming with your SWATCH WATCH on, make sure you rinse your watch with warm water afterwards. Sea saltwater can affect many parts of your watch, especially the strap, both leather and plastic, and some say that this causes the yellowing of some plastic parts of SWATCH WATCHES.
7. :- Skin and Chemical Products
When wearing your SWATCH WATCH wherever possible avoid direct contact with the following solvents, detergents, perfumes, sun creams and cosmetic products etc since they may damage either the strap or case of the watch. For more information on this and how it could affect your watch see our guide entitled SWATCH WATCH DISCOLOURATION.
8. :- Shock
Whether it is either thermal or physical both should be avoided as much as possible. Remember a SWATCH WATCH given the right TLC will be last for many years.
9. :- Magnetic Fields
Magnetic fields are all around us so avoidance is difficult, some say impossible, and they have been the ruin of many a good quartz watch. Be aware that just laying your SWATCH WATCH down on a domestic hi-fi speakers or on or near a kitchen refrigerator could well damage your quartz movement as they have strong magnetic fields. De-magnetizing by a local reputable jeweller will be needed. There are also D-I-Y machines available, if you can find one it could be well worth the investment.
10. :- Temperatures
Avoid extremes of temperature SWATCH WATCHES find it hard to function correctly above 60C or below 0C, come to think of it i think the wearer would also struggle at those extremes of temperature. Try to avoid extreme temperate changes as well.
So to summerise, look after your SWATCH WATCH and treat it with care and respect and in return your SWATCH WATCH will keep time and look nearly as good as it did on the day you purchased it.
A SWATCH WATCH IS FOR LIFE.
NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS.
