Keeping your watch in good working order is easy with some basic maintenance from time to time. Here’s a few tips to help:

• Avoid exposing your non-water resistant watch to moisture 

• Metal bracelets can be cleaned with slightly soapy water and a soft toothbrush

• Never adjust the date on your watch when the hour hand is between the hours of 9 and 3 o’clock to avoid damage to the watches gears and pinion

• Water resistant watches should always have the crown screwed down tightly before exposure to water

• If your watch is handwound, be sure to wind it fully at the same time each day, stop when you feel resistance

• An automatic watch should be worn daily to remain at peak accuracy

• Avoid extreme temperatures with your watch, and unless you’re rocking a Milgauss or Ingenieur, stay away from magnetic fields. Always avoid direct contact with magnets

• Unexpected impacts or shocks can result in damage to the case, crystal, or crown, as well as the internal components

• Take the watch off your wrist to wind it

• Don't sleep on the manufacture recommended maintenance periods(they don't come around that often, and can add many years to the life of your watch)
