How to properly use a men's mechanical watch?


There are two types of men's mechanical watches, one is a self-winding mechanical watch and the other is a manual-winding mechanical watch. Both of them need to be wound when they want to walk normally, but as long as the automatic mechanical watch is worn and maintains a certain amount of wrist activity and wearing time, it will automatically wind up. Manual mechanical watches need to be manually wound every once in a while.


When using a men's mechanical watch, if you don't wear it for a long time, you should manually wind it at least once a month to allow the movement to operate and prevent the lubricating oil inside the movement from drying up. You can buy a shaker for a self-winding mechanical watch and put it in. , the watch will automatically wind up when the watch shaker is activated.


How to wear an automatic mechanical watch and when the wrist is not moving, you can manually wind the watch to let the watch go first, and it will be automatically wound when you wear it normally.


How to properly use a men's mechanical watch?


What do you need to pay attention to in the daily use of men's mechanical watches?


1. It is best to avoid bumps and beatings. The movement of a men's mechanical watch is very precise. Violent vibrations will not only damage the appearance but also dislocate and damage the movement parts. It needs to be sent for inspection in time regardless of whether the appearance is damaged or not.


2. Avoid the watch from being magnetized. The magnetism of the men's mechanical watch will cause the watch to have a large error or even stop. Avoid using the watch near devices that may generate strong magnetic fields, such as refrigerator doors, TV sets, headphones, magnets, etc. After being magnetized, you only need to go to the watch shop to demagnetize with professional equipment and adjust the time to return to normal.


3. Avoid contact with cleaning agents, chemicals, cosmetics, and other items containing chemical substances. Chemicals can corrode the appearance of the watch and damage the waterproof gasket. If it does come into contact, rinse it off with water or wipe it off with a damp cloth, then dry it with a soft cloth.


4. The water resistance of the watch is graded, and the 30/50 meter water resistance can only prevent rain and water droplets that splash on the watch. 100/200 meters can swim in shallow water, 300 meters and above can wear diving. However, the waterproof of the watch is not eternal. The waterproof gasket to ensure the waterproof performance will gradually age with time. It is recommended to do a waterproof test every year. The watch should be repaired in time to avoid serious corrosion of the movement.


5. Avoid using the watch in environments with large temperature differences (such as bathing, or sauna), and also avoid using it in environments with extreme temperatures (below 0°C and above 60°C).


6. Regularly clean the watch. Men’s mechanical watches are usually stained with some dirt, and sweating on the wrist will also corrode the appearance of the watch and the waterproof gasket. Wipe with a soft, slightly damp cloth, then dry with a dry cloth.


7. Watches with functions such as the calendar should avoid adjusting the time and date of the watch between 9:00 pm and 3:00 am. During this time period, the watch calendar device is running, and the adjustment will damage the calendar device.


8. Men's mechanical watches need regular maintenance, and it is recommended to maintain them every 3-5 years. Because the movement of a men’s mechanical watch is relatively complex, the internal functional components need to run hundreds of thousands of times a day, relying on a small amount of lubricating oil inside the movement to reduce friction, and the lubricating oil will gradually dry up and volatilize over time, forming oil stains. Increase the degree of wear and tear of the movement. It will cause abnormal movement or even damage to the parts. Therefore, regular oil cleaning and maintenance are required.
