There are plenty of meetings throughout the day and setting your mobile to beep beep at the right moment just doesn’t cut it. You decided a simple to use alarm watch would do the trick. Well that’s OK but what you didn’t realize is that this watch is a lot more expensive than the regular off the shelf variety you have been used to in the past. So you figure you really need to take care of this one. But how do you look after a watch? What do you have to do with it to make sure it lasts a long time? Does it need any maintenance? You never even considered these questions with regards to a watch before did you?
Maintain your automatic watch winder clean. If it’s a water resistance rating of 50m you’ll be able to clean your view with luke warm water and a quite small volume of soap. A tooth brush or equivalent object can be used to easily loosen dirt. Be sure that you take away all soap and dry it completely afterwards. When the water features a rating of less than 50m the best issue to work with is a soft cloth as well as a dry toothbrush to clean between the links.
If you’d prefer a colorful, casual watch, the Yachtman piece with the bright blue dial is a good choice. The numbers are represented by bold round indices.

Although, quartz still has other advantages. For example, quartz watches are almost always accurate. You can set the time on a quartz watch once, and it will still be fairly accurate 10 years later.

Thus, automatic watches become pretty inaccurate within a few weeks, and you need to reset them. Also, you need to use a watch winder if you have an automatic watch. A remontoir montre automatique will keep your watch moving during the middle of the night, which simulates the movement of your arm. If you don’t do this, then you will need to reset the time on an automatic watch every single morning.
