Keep Precise Time Longer With Proper Quartz Watch Care

Sep 4, 2008
A quartz watch is a fine piece of jewelry that must be cared for and properly maintained if you wish for it to remain in good condition. In order for a quartz watch to continue to provide precise time, it will need to be serviced every couple of years as well. There are
some things that you can do between servicing to care for your watch.

Treat your quartz watch carefully at all times. Try not to bang the watch against any walls or doorways accidentally. Such a collision or a drop on a floor could result in the watch being broken or losing its precision. You can wear your watch while playing most sports, although if you think there is a chance that you could hit the ground at any point, you should take off the watch. You can purchase shock proof quartz watches but just the same, it is best to be careful with any quartz watch.

Extreme temperatures may temporarily affect the ability of the watch to keep precise time. For instance, very cold or hot temperatures may stop the electronic functions for a short time. If the quartz watch has a digital display, the liquid crystals may be slow to display in extremely cold weather or appear dark in very hot temperatures. A quartz watch keeps the best time when it is worn for long periods in a moderate range of temperatures.

Although magnetism does not affect digital quartz watches, analog quartz watches may be affected. For this reason, avoid putting such watches near electrical equipment which has enough electrical current to create a stronger magnetic field around it. Avoid putting the analog quartz watch near any magnets.

A quartz watch should not get wet, unless it is waterproof. If you have been wearing the watch for a long period, do not put it into its case. Let is air dry first to avoid getting moisture from perspiration in its inner workings. Do not wear the watch so tight that your wrist gets sweaty. If your watch gets dirty, you should clean it with a damp cloth carefully. Use a soft toothbrush to clean the watch with soap and water when necessary. Do not get any water on the watch face or case. If the strap is leather, do not set the watch in the sun because this could fade the band.

It is worth it to take your watch in to get serviced every two years or when you need a battery change. Battery life for quartz watches can last between one to five years so take your watch in to get serviced even if the battery does not need to be changed yet. Such watch care service includes lubrication and cleaning of inner workings of the watch. The service person will open up the watch case and disassembles the watch. The watch parts are checked for need of replacement parts. After cleaning and lubrication, the watch is reassembled. Once the timing is set, the watch is polished and will appear new again.

Care and regular servicing will keep your quartz watch running perfectly. It does not take much to care for your quartz watch so that it will continue to give you the right time and look for years. Many quartz watches have lasted for decades with the right care and maintenance.
