When you get a new watch, you may be curious about how is such a sophisticated instrument to be waterproof? Professional watch manufacturer can give you the answer.

Waterproof principle

 

There are several factors that make a watch waterproof. The most important is the gasket, or O-ring, which is made of rubber, nylon or Teflon. A waterproof seal is formed at the joint between the crystal glass, the bottom cover, and the crown and the case. If it is a chronograph, its pusher will also have a gasket. In addition, the waterproof case is lined with a sealing layer (coated with a rapidly hardening liquid) to prevent water seepage. The thickness and material of the case determine whether a watch can be worn underwater and is therefore an important factor. The use of a threaded tight bottom cover instead of a press-fit bottom cover also aids in waterproofing. Many diving watches use a threaded crown to prevent water from penetrating 

through the rotating holes. The crown is tightly sealed to form a watertight seal, just like the seal between a jar and a threaded cap.

In addition to its own design factors, improper use is the main culprit in the water intake of the watch. For example, after adjusting the time, the faucet is not tightened; the watch is prone to fogging under the condition of high temperature and low temperature; in addition, wearing a watch to take a bath, There may be no problems at first, and after a while, the watch will definitely have problems. When the watch encounters the problem of water ingress, it is best to send it to the watch store for the movement of the movement or the drying of the case by the professional master. It is best not to blow it dry by the hair dryer when the machine is not taken out. The move not only does not help, but it is easy to leave the evaporated moisture inside the movement. The problem will be more serious. Watch factory would like to remind friends who have this habit should pay attention to it.
