While you are in the market for the best replica watches and checking out the specs, you’ve possibly seen information about the extra water resistance. No matter if you’re an avid diver, already looking ahead to that summer beach trip, or just desire to get a better understanding of your watch and its capabilities, it’s significant to know your watch’s water resistance and how to take good care of your watch from the shower to the deep blue sea and beyond.
There are big differences between Water resistance and waterproof. Although the watch world uses the term “waterproof,” no watch can really be totally waterproof. There are just varying degrees of water resistance. A watch described as water-resistant most likely has a relatively low degree of water resistance. It often means it’s just designed with some moisture protection. Let me show you an example, your average water-resistant watch can endure getting caught in an afternoon rain shower but not being submerged in a swimming pool.
Water-resistance itself is a measurement of static pressure at a particular depth. A 30m watch is the basic standard for being able to be labeled “water-resistant”. But actually, this means that water shouldn’t get inside of a watch during a normal day. However, this does not mean that the watch is safe for activities that introduce dynamic pressures.
So how should you care for your watch? Whether it’s exposed to a bit of water through daily wear or a full submersion, it’s crucial to know how to care for your replica watch’s water resistance. Your watch’s water resistance should be tested yearly at a minimum. We suggest this for normal daily wear only. However, if you’re a diver, swimmer, surfer, sailor, or someone who wears your watch in the water often, it should be tested more often. This is especially imperative if you wear your watch frequently in saltwater. Over time, the salt causes corrosion and additional wear and tear on the watch, diminishing the water resistance over time.
All it takes is a single drop of water to do serious damage to the mechanism of your watch. It is important to take your watch to a certified professional immediately if you notice water inside your watch. This would consist of droplets or condensations. The longer that moisture stays inside a watch the more damage the watch sustains. Moisture can cause damage to all the internal portions of a watch including the movement, dial, hands, and luminosity.
Well, simply showering with your fake watch and exposing it to soap and water could result in water getting in the watch and causing serious damage. Even though your watch says it has water resistance of up to 100 meters, you should still avoid things like diving in a pool. An act like diving into a pool causes an abrupt change in pressure that can shock your watch and instantly push it over its water resisting capacity.
