For Battery Driven Watch (Quartz Watch)

While not using your watch daily, you should avoid placing your watches near items with strong magnetic field, such as: Television, Refrigerator, Speakers, Computer or Laptop, Cellphone, Induction cooker (while turning on) or others wave receiving and transferring machine, because watches’ batteries will drain faster if they are exposed to such types of environment with strong magnetic field. Moreover, watches’ Internal circuits (IC) will be magnetized which will cause them to malfunction. You should keep in mind that the batteries must be replaced right after it is used up. Although modern batteries are very well-built, keeping long used-up batteries in your watch can make them rust and hence damage other parts in your watch.

Mechanical Wrist Watches In General (Mechanic, Automatic, Tourbillon)

For watches with Automatic movements or Hand-winding movements, you should avoid adjusting the time, calendar or the winding between 21 to 3 o’clock of every day, because if you perform those actions during that period, you will damage the watch’s wheel system. Moreover, you should not adjust the time anti-clockwise, which means you should not turn crown anti-clockwise (apart from some special brands which allow you to turn the crown up or down in order to switch to different time and time zone), this can damage the gears and windings severely. A watch’s mechanism is as same as one from a car, it also need regular maintenance so that its parts and delicate details cooperate at their fullest, hence helps it perform precisely and increase its lifetime. Periodically, take you watch back to the its genuine agency every 2 years to have a professional technician maintain and oil it.

Wrist Watches Using Solar Power (Eco-Drive)

Wrist Watches Using Solar Power (Eco-Drive)For watches with rechargeable solar-powered batteries, if you don’t use them anymore and put them away in a cupboard or closet, away from the sunlight for a period of time of 3 to 6 months, the watch will stop working. If you want the watch to start running again, you must bring them out to the sun for 15 minutes, your watch will re-start after a moment. However, you should casually put them away, since it will age the battery (which means the battery life time will decrease). One other thing is that if expose it for a long time under the hot and bright sunlight, it will damage the leather band.

Stainless-Steel Band Wrist Watch

For Stainless-steel band wrist watch, during you usage it will be dirtied with sweat and dirt. In those situations, you can use toothpaste or liquid hand soap to clean it. Use a toothbrush to gently brush it then wash carefully with water. Finally, use a soft towel to clean it properly. This will help increase the lifetime of you watch. Do not apply any solvents, cleansers, industrial bleaches, adhesives, paints or industrial sprays on the watch’s surface. Firmly close the adjust button in order to prevent water from entering the watch while cleaning.

Leather Band Wrist Watch

Nowadays, watches’ bands which are made of leather are beautifully crafted, and with acre, they can keep their durability in quite a long time (about 12 months). However, because it is to some organic materials, leather band’s life span is usually limited due to the effects from the environment, especially moisture – sweat from the owner’s hand. In order to keep the leather band in good conditions, prevent discoloration and rotting, you should keep them away from places with high level humidity, do not wear it when you wash your hands, go under the rain or any kind of contact with water. Leather band is complexly constructed and it can absorb moisture, that’s why you should not let them be in contact with any solvents, cleansers, perfumes, and other types of cosmetics, because there chemicals can damage your leather band. When you sight cracking and rotting signs on your leather band, you should change to a new set of band with similar size right away so as to avoid sudden wrecking of the band and the watch fell to the ground, break or damage parts of the wrist watch.

Gold Plated Wrist Watch

You should keep in mind that sweat is the enemy of the plated layer. Even though advanced technology nowadays can give us a more beautiful and more long lasting layer, you sweat still contains a larger amount of salt. This salt will dull the color of gold when it is in touches the surface, hence the surface of your watch will not look as glossy as it used to. This is the reason why, you have to bring along a small piece of cotton with your watch to clean it whenever you take it off. This is not only a very good way to keep your wrist watch shiny all the time but also a good approach to protecting your gold plated layer! On the other hand, if you do not have time to take such care for your watch, then every 3 or 4 weeks, you should use soft cotton soaked with warm water to clean your watch in order to wash away the sweat on your gold plated layer.

Some Other Important Cautions

  • Docaution-stick-man not test the durability and anti-scratching of your watch’s Sapphire glass by using objects that are harder than sapphire such as glass-cutting knife, diamond… because they will scratch the watch’s glass
  • Do not wear your watch while taking a hot bath or sitting in a sauna because it will break the gasket inside the watch, which will eventually reduce the water-resistant ability of the watch
  • Do not wear your watch while doing heavy works, works that make you hit your watch into many other things, such as: mechanic, porterage… because the watch’s coat, glass, and band will easily be scratched and damaged
  • Mechanical watches in general (mechanic, automatic, tourbillon) are ingeniously manufactured, with tiny parts which co-operate with each other. In order for the watch to work stably for a long time, you should not wear it while participating in sport activities such as: swimming, soccer, volleyball, tennis… (apart from special-designed sport watches)

Sunrise: An ideal time to lose weight

If you wish to get thinner without wasting a lot of energy, you should do it at sunrise because the sun at this time can help you lose weight. You might find this doubtful, but nothing is further from the truth !

According to a study from Feinberg Medical School of the University of Northwestern, the sunshine at dawn can actually help you lose weight very effectively.

The researchers asked 54 participants – aged 30 on average – to wear a screen monitoring their exposure to morning sunshine in 7 days straight. They also kept a record of the food that had been consumed. In the end, the participants who had come into contact with morning sunshine possessed lower BMIs than those who had not.

Why did those who exposed themselves to the early sun weigh less ? There are two reasons:

First: people who get up early to embrace the early sunshine at dawn have better biological clocks, good and stable sleep patterns resulting in more effective metabolism, thus helping with the process of losing weight.

Second: the sunshine in the morning is more intense than that in the afternoon and evening; therefore, exercising in the morning is what you should frequently do.

Blue light included in the morning sun rays is beneficial to a person’s biorhythm. You only need between 20 and 30 minutes exercising under the morning sun to effectively lose weight without worrying about going on a diet.

Or, if you cannot get up and go out to exercise, drinking a cup of tea or coffee under the morning sun also brings you considerable benefits.
