Time, it’s the one thing that we can never get back. At Nasr Jewelers, we are passionate about spending every minute we get doing what we love, and that’s helping those in our community purchase jewelry pieces that will not only bring them joy and make them feel beautiful but that can be passed down for generations to come. However, what’s the point of doing what we do if we aren’t educating our customers on caring for their rings, necklaces, bracelets, and watches? Today, we are going to focus on the latter – watches.
Watches are a sign of luxury and professionalism. Not only are they useful, but they are the key ingredient to every outfit, no matter the occasion. You could be hiking up a mountain or conquering the boardroom; either way, wearing a watch shows that you are punctual, organized, and prepared. To keep yours in perfect condition, adhere to the following tips!
Keep Your Watch Wound
To start, you need to determine if you have a manual or automatic watch. A manual watch will need to be wound once a day at the same time, while an automatic watch will only need to be manually wound roughly once a month. Your watch is lubricated. However, it can dry out over time. Winding your watch forces the lubricant to spread, allowing your piece to work better for longer.
Keep Your Watch Clean
A little soap and water never hurt anything, right? Wrong! While a touch of water is fine, soap can creep into the crevices of your watch and cause long-term damage. Our advice is that you use a microfiber cloth, and if you need to use water, make sure that the crown is fully secured and that you don’t touch the leather band. Remember, your watch is very delicate and should be handled with a tender touch.
Test Your Watch’s Water Resistance Annually
Yes, your watch may be water-resistant, but a good rule of thumb is not to test its limits. Remember, it’s not waterproof. So, keep that in mind during use. Another good habit to develop is to have your watch’s water resistance tested annually. As we mentioned, pieces of your watch can dry out. To guarantee that you aren’t putting your treasured piece in harm’s way, it’s best to know how well she’s holding up regularly.
Read your Watch’s Owner Manual
Have you ever purchased something, opened it up, saw the owner’s manual, and immediately thrown it in the trash can? We know you have, just like us! However, we urge you not to do this concerning your watch. The owner’s manual will enlighten you on how you should care for and store your piece. If you want your watch to last beyond your lifetime, for others you care about to enjoy, you need to make sure that you are giving it the care it needs.
At Nasr Jewelers, we have many different watch brands and designs to choose from, all of which will take your breath away. We hope you now feel confident that you have the tools needed to care for one of these pieces. Purchasing a watch is an investment. As with all investments, it’s vital that you understand the ins and outs of what you are getting yourself into. Now that you know how to care for a watch, it’s time to start or add on to your collection! Stop by Nasr Jewelers ASAP and let our team help you pick out a piece that showcases your personality and lifestyle!!
