possible, yes. Soaps, caustic soda solutions and cleaning products
should not come into contact with your watch. Sooner or later all
chemicals will damage the seals in your watch. Certain chemical
solvents, such as petrol or gasoline and acetone can have such a drastic
effect on seals that your watch is no longer water-resistant.
Some might ask,
Question: Can I keep my watch on in the shower?
advise you to take your water-resistant watch off when showering. Soap
and shower gels are designed to reduce the surface tension of water
because this makes it easier to remove particles of dirt from the skin.
However, soapy water can also penetrate the minute gaps between the
parts of the case and the seals. Please note this whenever you clean
can also be very detrimental to leather straps; certain types of
leather (e.g. crocodile skin) should never come into contact with water.
