Care for your wristwatch properly - this is how your watch stays clean!

A wristwatch is a commodity - so it's inevitable that it gets a little dirty from time to time. We will show you how to clean your wristwatch in simple steps and what else you should pay attention to. Have fun while reading!

As an example we naturally take one of our V5 chronographs. The V5 basically consists of a screwed stainless steel case with sapphire crystal and a silicone strap.

Stainless steel cases are durable and resistant to rust and corrosion, but they can look dirty and scratched over time. Here are some tips on how to properly clean your stainless steel case:

  1. Use a soft cloth: Use a soft cloth to remove dust and dirt from the case. Avoid abrasive materials such as steel wool or scouring powder as they can scratch the stainless steel case.

  2. Use soap and water: To thoroughly clean the case, use water and a mild soap. Dip the soft cloth in the soapy solution and gently wipe the case. Avoid cleaning the case directly under running water as this can cause water to seep into the watch and damage it.

  3. Use special cleaners: There are special stainless steel case cleaners on the market that can help remove stubborn stains and fingerprints. Make sure that you buy a cleaner that is suitable for use on stainless steel.

  4. Avoid contact with chemicals: Avoid contact with chemicals such as perfume, hairspray and detergents as they can damage the stainless steel case.
