After spending a good deal of money (not too much if you shop at World of Watches), you want to ensure that your luxury watches are clean and in working order. Unless you have divers watches, you need to take proper care about getting certain parts of the watch wet. Start with the bracelet. If you can, remove it. If not, just don’t let the watch face get water on it. Fill a small bowl with water and a small amount of mild detergent. Place the band in the bowl and allow it to soak for a few minutes. If there is a heavy amount of dirt and grime, let it soak longer. Use a soft cloth to brush away the dirt. Rinse under clean water or with a clean, damp cloth.
If you have a leather watch, use dish detergent instead with a small amount of white vinegar to the mixture. You can then follow the same steps except rinse with a damp cloth instead. Dry thoroughly, especially for leather bands. You don’t want any moisture to remain, otherwise it can cause mildew.
For those with scratches on their gold watches, it’s best to simply take it to a jeweler to remove them.
