    I currently own a Seiko 5 watch with 30m water resistance. From what I've heard, this means splash-resistant only. Does anyone know an effective way to clean these watches without potentially damaging them? Most of the guides and videos out there use watches with 100m or higher water resistance...
  2. STOWA
    Hi, I just purchased a flieger 40 classic in bronze case. As you all may know, Stowa gives its bronze watches a special treatment which should prevent the bronze from further developing a patina. It seems it does a very good job. The problem is that this treatment gives the bronze a darker...
  3. Citizen
    Very helpful posts. I wish I had stumbled on them earlier. I have a Citizens AT, Eco drive, Blue Angel’s Sky Hawk Titanium watch. I got it in 2016, and wore it constantly until 2021 when I bought a fitness band and wore it instead. Although it had sat on my bookshelf the entire time, it was...

    I thought I had already learnt my lesson when it came to any type of cleaning on vintage watch dials, but just a little dab of rodico and a chuck of varnish lifted in the worst place on my new Seamaster De ville. What would you guys do? Leave as-is or try and add a tiny layer of varnish back...

    First time, long time.... Anyone have any tips on cleaning coin edged cases? not coined bezels, the cases that have the edges like Breguet does. Thank you in advance.
  6. Hamilton
    Hi, I have a Hamilton Pan Europ chrono. The rotating bezel is no longer rotating, it's a bit gummed up. I brought it to a Jewelry store that said it may be like $400 to clean. I told him I only wanted external cleaning as otherwise the watch is functioning fine. He said that may be $50 or...

    I recently got a mudman g9300. I wore it while playing football in a muddy field ( hey, its a mudman! lol :p ) and well, my watch got soaked in the mud. I wanna clean it now. Before I open up a new G shock and unknowingly destroy it, I request the knowledgeable members of this forum to plz guide...
  8. Casio G-Shock
    I use my G shock as an everyday beater and its been on my wrist for the past 5 years, 24X7. b-) I was browsing online for new strap replacements and saw images of all the dirt buildup under the Bezel and let me be honest, its freaking me out and now I am feeling uncomfortable knowing that...

    Hello everyone and happy 4th of July! There's tons of information about machines and solutions but it's all over the place mixing professional and hobby level info.

  10. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hope it's okay to ask in this forum. I've got more than 30 PWs, does anyone know a good watchmakers in SE Asia? Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, ... Had some really bad experiences. Like when I asked to get a friend's old mechanical wristwatches serviced. Yeah, someone took the money. No, nothing, nada...

    Hi guys, I am a proud new owner of the Speedmaster Professional 3570.50! Love the watch! I wanted to ask a question regarding cleaning. I searched the forum and read numerous posts regarding the watch's water resistance, from some people saying swimming is fine to others who said no swimming or...
  12. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi~ I buy and resell used watches on eBay. Many times I come across watches that are in bad shape cosmetically but still function properly internally. Usually the cystals are all scratched up, the steel case and bracelet is heavily scratched and scuffed... In general it is a mess. I would like...

    Hi, I've just received a new Ticino watch, 47mm. After 2 days of wearing, I must say I am impressed because time keeping is 0sec/day, better than all my watches except my Citizen radio controlled which does the same. :) The sapphire is domed and it has AR only on the internal side. But today I...
  14. Straps & Bracelets
    I just purchased my Hamilton Khaki King from Jomashop and have had it about 3 weeks. I absolutely love the watch and have been very protective of it. Somehow I managed to scuff up the top of the clasp that sits on the interior of my wrist and also some minor scuffs on the bracelet itself (you...

    Curious how you guys clean and maintain your bracelets and cases? Also, I have a SS bracelet for a PO XL that is a little scuffed and scratch. Pretty minor but annoying nonetheless. Any recommendations for the best way to restore it? Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise!

    I have been using the same cloth that came from the watch box for several months now and I'm wondering if they can be washed and how often are you supposed to replace them?

  19. Oris
    On Friday I received my first Oris, a used older model BC3, which I'd purchased on ebay. I got a very good deal on it since it was a little beat up and in need of some care. Below is a description of how I cleaned it up with some before and afters.Note that this is not a tutorial in any way...
