Misunderstandings and solutions for the use of diving watches

Misunderstanding: Some people think that their watches are waterproof, and they often get into some misunderstandings. For example, wearing a watch to take a hot bath or going to a sauna is actually completely wrong. Because the watch itself is not an absolutely sealed case, that is to say, waterproof is not necessarily waterproof, no matter how many meters it is marked to prevent, it cannot be used in hot water above 40°C.

Because according to thermal expansion and contraction, some components of the watch will expand in different degrees under hot water conditions, which may increase the possible gap and affect the normal service life of the watch. In addition, the lubricating oil not only diffuses and loses rapidly at high temperatures, but also oxidizes and deteriorates, thus losing its lubricating effect; sudden temperature changes, such as sudden ice water stimulation, will easily condense and fog the air in the watch. At the same time, the watch is waterproof The rubber ring is also easy to accelerate aging under the action of thermal expansion and contraction, which affects the waterproof performance of the watch.

How to deal with it: The situation of water ingress of the watch is also different. General tap water is better to deal with. If it is sea water or beverages, it will be corrosive to the watch to a certain extent. The most important thing is to send the watch as soon as possible. Watch repair shops do drying, and scrubbing oil if the water is serious. Don't leave it alone. If the repair is not done in time, the water will cause the steel parts in the watch movement to appear embroidered.
