Are Your Watches Water Proof?

Especially watch mechanical watch is an extremely sophisticated product configuration, for high-grade mechanical watches, in addition to professional conservation 1,2 times a year, but also for everyday wear should follow some precautions to avoid unnecessary damage. Although most of the watch has waterproof apron, but long years, always Aprons aging. Moisture, water, maintenance is an important part of the watch, be sure not to place undue reliance on waterproof watch. While avoiding wear a watch sauna, because the source of water vapor is the most terrible rust movement. So back to the south, to pay special attention to moisture and water.

Watch moisture, but also be careful not to put the watch into a larger temperature difference between the environment, otherwise it would watch component variants, getting containers of change of electrical resistance, resulting in stop and go watch or accuracy. Some people think that I watch waterproof up to 100 meters or 300 meters, so the table wearing their love to take a bath sauna. In fact, this approach is wrong, because the watch itself is not an absolute seal of the shell, that is not necessarily waterproof water vapor. We all know that water vapor is mixed in the air, has been able to float in the air because of the molecular structure of water vapor is very small. And watch waterproof rubber ring seal is blocked by the gap between the bottom cover and the case, when the temperature changes, atmospheric pressure will squeeze into the air with a lot of water vapor in the watch, and the water will be the aging of rubber, it thus losing the waterproof performance degradation.

Watch water will watch what will bring harm? First, we all know that quartz watches and electronic form by the resistors and capacitors and batteries and other components of the composition, the water itself is a good conductor, electrons in the water “flow.” A large amount of water, then they will burn in the short term a quartz substrate, a small amount of water may not be a problem if the short term, but long-term down the water will corrode circuit boards cause permanent damage. While other mechanical components oxidize water table gossamer gear, resulting in loss of precision can not even use.
