How to care for your Dive Watch

Here are some steps you can take to care for your dive watch after swimming or diving:

  1. Rinse the watch with fresh water: After each dive or swim, rinse the watch with fresh water to remove any salt, chlorine, or other contaminants that may have accumulated on the watch. This will help prevent corrosion and other damage.

  2. Dry the watch thoroughly: Use a soft cloth or towel to dry the watch as thoroughly as possible, paying special attention to the crown, buttons, and other moving parts.

  3. Check the gaskets: Dive watches have gaskets (rubber seals) that help keep water out of the watch. If the gaskets become damaged or worn, they may allow water to leak into the watch. Be sure to check the gaskets regularly and replace them if necessary.

  4. Store the watch properly: When not in use, store your dive watch in a dry, cool place. Avoid exposing the watch to extreme temperatures or moisture, as this can damage the watch.

  5. Have the watch serviced: Have your dive watch serviced by a professional watchmaker every few years to ensure that it is in good working order. This will help prevent problems and prolong the life of the watch.

By following these simple steps, you can help keep your dive watch in top condition for years to come.
