How to maintain the mechanical watch movement
Watches are one of the essential tools in our lives. Many people have the habit of wearing watches to travel. Among watches, the most valuable are mechanical watches. Mechanical watches are more careful in use than quartz watches, especially the movements of mechanical watches. Today, the watch home will tell you how to maintain the mechanical watch movement!
Wear normally to avoid vibration
Proper amount of activity is required for continuous winding and normal operation. (It may be slow when the wearer has a small amount of activity. This is normal. Please rotate the crown 20-30 times for the first time to make the mainspring wind. ), Although the watch is shockproof, when the external impact force is strong, it is easy to break the tip of the pendulum shaft or the journal of the wheel train, and it can also affect the running time of the hand. Replacement in daily life: wear a mechanical watch during static activities, and wear a quartz watch when engaged in sports. This will help to extend the life of the watch.
Although watches are made of non-magnetic materials that are not easily magnetized, they are greatly affected by magnetic fields when traveling, such as the magnetic buckle on televisions, radio speakers, backpacks or bags
Try not to take the watch to swim or wash clothes. Once the rain gets wet or gets wet, do not pull out the watch to adjust the watch at this time, but wipe it dry immediately. The sea is even more untouchable. Even if a waterproof watch is specified, it can only be guaranteed for one year. Because the waterproof ring of the watch has been worn for a whole year, plus various inevitable external factors such as sweat and dust, it will definitely be tired, so one year later It must be replaced with a new waterproof ring, otherwise it will not have the waterproof function. Because the crown of the crown is relatively protruding, try to avoid it from being bumped. Also, pay attention to the gap between the crown and the case. If the gap is too small, it will affect the operation, and if it is too large, it will affect the waterproof performance and it is not beautiful.
Generally speaking, 3 to 5 years of oil sludge washing are determined by the following factors: ① the seal of the watch ② the degree of wear of the watch (the degree of wear) ③ quartz watches can extend the washing cycle ④ men's watches or pocket watches can be relatively thin Or the women's watch has a long wash cycle
放置 Long-term use of watch
Do not place it in a suitcase with camphor pills or sanitary balls, it will deteriorate the watch oil and make the watch move inaccurately. 上 Wind up or wear it every month to ensure flexible internal activities.
1. Special remind everyone that any watch should not be worn in warm water or in the bathroom, even if your watch is waterproof, because the watch's sealed roll rubber is easy to age when heated, and the water vapor molecules around it are relatively small, it is easy to penetrate into the case , Causing damage to internal machinery.
2. If the watch is abnormal, it should be immediately sent to a special watch shop for inspection.
3. A fully automatic mechanical watch must be worn under sufficient activity, that is, it must be worn for more than 10 hours a day for normal operation.
4. Different watches should be worn on different occasions. For example, it is best to choose sports watches with excellent waterproof and shock resistance when exercising.
5. If there is a watch labeled WATER RESESTENT or 3ATM on the cover, it is generally only suitable for water spray or light rain under pressure.
6. Because the internal mechanical structure of each watch is different, under normal use, the error of a mechanical watch or a fully automatic watch is within 30 seconds per day (this standard is promulgated by the national ministries and commissions), while the quartz watch's Lower errors are also more accurate.
