In case of regular contact with water, check the watch every year, in case of absence - once every 2-3 years.

If the watch is wet or is still in water, it is strongly not recommended to unscrew the crown. Before swimming or diving, be sure to check that it is securely screwed in. Also, we do not recommend pressing the buttons on the watch, otherwise there is a high risk of water getting into the case.

If condensation has formed under the glass, and at that moment it is impossible to contact a service center or a watch brand store for advice, dry the watch by placing it in a warm, dry place and unscrewing the crown.

Be sure to remove the watch from your hand before a bath, sauna or jacuzzi. The high temperature can deform the gasket in the housing and the glass can detach from the housing. Additional harm from bath procedures in watches rafiqsonsonline.com/product-category/fossil/ is the formation of condensation and subsequent rust on the parts of the clock mechanism.

If salt or chlorinated water gets into the case, it is recommended to rinse the watch under running water.

How to choose a diving watch ?
The tightness of the case is not the only guarantor of the long life of a waterproof watch. You need to pay attention to structural elements.

A good performance for diving over 15-20 meters implies a strong steel case, ideally equipped with a screw-down case back. The thickness of the glass must be at least 4 mm, otherwise it will not withstand the pressure of water and cracks are likely to form. The crown should be screwed down and, if possible, with additional protection on the sides. In case you are choosing a diving watch rafiqsonsonline.com/product-category/bonito-watches/, the bracelet / strap for it is usually made of stainless steel, rubber or neoprene, providing a wrist margin necessary for diving in a diving suit.

The important detail is the rotating bezel. It should only rotate counterclockwise & have special protection against accidental rotation.
