What To Deal With Water Intrusion Of Your Watch

Now watches are basically water-resistant( cheap watches not included).The waterproof standard is 30 meters or 3 atmosphers(3 ATM , the same name as the automatic teller machines ,but don’t mistake it )This waterproof standard is called “life waterproofing”,which means it can temporarily resist rain and shower splashing but can’t be worn for swimming and diving.

Watches waterproof structure are based on the sealing rubber ring or nylon ring.However, rubber ring will be aging and generally this will occur after being used for a few years,which will cause the loss of leakproofness.However,even without  inflow of water,its mechanical parts will get rusted by prolonged exposure to moisture  in the damp environment   .

 phenomenons of water inflow

 (1)mist inside the watch glass

 (2)condensatin of water drops inside the glass

?3?a large number of water drops on the dial and watch glass

the natures of the water that gets into your watch

(1) pure water or distilled water

(2) tap water or rain

(3) drinks or beer

(4) seawater

(5) cosmetics or chemical reagents or medicinal liquid

Corrosion of distilled water is less than that of seawater,and corrosion of  chemical reagents is the largest among 5 types above.It is imperative to take action when your watch get water intrusion.Otherwise, water will rust the steel parts inside the case.And tiny components will need to be replaced once getting rusted, which will lead to a great cost of repairment. In addition to the movement components,dial and hands will suffer discoloration and rust from water vapor.

some simple methods to cope with this problem

(1)If your watch is soaked by water ,you can pack it tight with several paper or a lint ,then place it near 40-watt light bulb ,about 15cm away from it, in the end  bake it for about 30 minutes.Don’t bake it near fire in case of suffering deformation of watch mirror from the heat.

(2) wear it in the same way but with your watch upside down ,the water vapor can be revomed after two hours.

(3)put granular silica gel and your watch into a sealed container.A few hours later, the water will disappear when taking your watch out of the container.This method is not only simple and cost-effective but also does little harm to accuracy and life of your watch.Silica gel can have its capacity of water absorption back after being dried at 120 ? for several hours. As a consequence , it can be repeatedly used .

These simple methods may help you ,but if the problem is serous , you should send it to a repair shop as soon as possible.
