Method 1: Drying granules with silica gel




When water enters the watch case carelessly, a granular substance called silica gel can be used to put the watches that have accumulated water into an airtight container together. After several hours, the watches are taken out and the accumulated water disappears completely. This method is simple and economical, without any damage to the accuracy and life of wrist watch. Silica gel, which has absorbed water for many times, can be dried for several hours at 120 C. with renewable water absorption capacity and can be used repeatedly.

Method 2: Hot baking with electric light bulb




If the water intake is not serious, but there is a layer of fog in the glass of the watch, then the watch can be wrapped tightly with several layers of toilet paper or moisture-absorbing velvet cloth, and baked about 30 minutes at a distance of 15 centimeters from a 40-watt electric light bulb, the water vapor can be eliminated. Do not close the watch to the fire and bake it directly, so as not to cause the watch to be warmed and deformed.




Method 3: Wear a watch back




A small piece of calcium chloride (Fig. 1) can be wrapped directly with gauze, then the watch cover is taken out, and the gauze-wrapped calcium chloride and the electronic watch are sealed into a plastic bag and box. Waiting for half a day, you can take out the watch, and you can see the water vapor of the electronic watch disappears. If the watches have serious water intake, they can be kept for one day.




Method 4: Oil wiping in watchshop




All the three methods mentioned above can not remove water vapor. They should be sent to the watchshop immediately to wipe off the oil and remove the moisture in the machine core so as to avoid rusting of the parts.




Watch Intake Maintenance Method: The only better way for the watches to enter water is to open the back cover of the watch, make a treatment of the machine core in the watch, and then oil each machine core part. Therefore, when the watch enters the water, it will make the parts of the machine core in the watch get wet, which will lead to the harm of rust. Therefore, the maintenance of the watches'water intake should not only be clear about the steam in the watches, but also maintain the machine core in the watches, so as to prevent the damage of rusting parts.
