Taking good care of valuable and treasured items makes financial sense. We maintain our cars and homes, having them cleaned, polished and refinished to keep them working well and looking good. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that watches should also be cleaned and undergo periodic maintenance.
Modern watches have a high level of reliability and recent innovations like ceramics mean that new watches remain looking good for longer than ever before. Considering the number of tiny fast-moving parts that make up a mechanical watch movement, it is amazing that these miniscule machines continue to keep time year after year.
The truth is, we watch-wearers expect a lot from our watches and it’s nice to know we can give them a helping hand now and then – whether is be cleaning, fitting new straps or ensuring proper storage – so that they will continue to function well and retain their looks.
