How to keep your watch moving?

Watches need surprisingly little maintenance considering what fine instruments they are. By following a few rules of upkeep, you will keep your watches in good working condition for years.

Have mechanical and automatic watches checked by a professional jeweler every three to four years for lubrication and damage.
In general, quartz watches do not need as much maintenance as mechanical watches; however, it is a good idea to have the watch interior checked for needed repairs when you have the battery changed. Keep watches, especially quartz watches, away from magnets which can damage the movement.

Moisture can cause damage to watch movements, and most watches feature a certain level of water resistance in the design to keep water out of the case. Have water-resistant watches checked every one or two years to make sure the seals are still intact.
