Diary of a Watchmaker

December 22, 2017



Your timepiece is a precision instrument, and the seals that hold back the elements are quite delicate. These seals tend to perish over time and unfortunately, unless you possess X-ray vision you can't determine how worn the seals are from examining the exterior of the watch. Pressure testing can tell you if it's leaking, and from where, but without replacing all seals, you can't guarantee future water-resistance with any certainty.  

Because the seals perish, a watch can lose its water resistance over time. For example, you might have a divers watch that is 200m water resistant, but one day after a swim at the beach you discover fog or condensation on the glass. What is the cause of it, what harm can it do? The answer is a lot ! I've seen a watch with worn seals develop significant rust within 40 minutes of being in the ocean due to the salt water. In this case I was able to remove the rust and restore the watch but this isn't always possible. Even a small amount of moisture can cause a lot of expensive damage to your timepiece.  

Most manufacturers recommend you have all your seals replaced every 2 years to ensure safe water-resistance.

Is it time to have your seals checked and replaced? We offer obligation free estimates.
