Service life of watches


The service life of watches can not be expressed by exact figures so far. Generally speaking, the service life of a watch depends on whether the wearer is correctly using and maintaining the watch. For example, Peter Pace wear watches a bath, watch the appearance of dirty, watchband length discomfort, bad environment, serious impact, will make the watch is easy to damage, shorten the service life. A watch, if properly maintained, will still be in normal condition for decades.

Watches in the daily wear process, it will inevitably encounter many problems. For example: watches in the wear suddenly go fast, when the time is not stable; watch careless water; watches by the magnetic, and so on. Faced with these problems, if we know the problem, becomes much easier, here together with the small series of learning these watches knowledge!

Why does the watch suddenly move fast and unstable when it is worn?

Automatic mechanical watches with shockproof ability, but if the impact force is too large, such as vigorously waving wrist, the impact will make spring up together, to watch too fast or even shut down; more impact will let watch hairspring jump off speed damping device, the misplacement of the needle is a fatal impact on the speed control system. Often suffer from great impact, will make winding efficiency, even failure.

What's the standard of error for watches?

Mechanical friction and fatigue due to structural characteristics, a ring material, the output torque changes from strong to weak, and the spring and the gear in the transmission torque of the friction, will affect the accuracy of the clock. Another climate temperature, gravity, magnetic field, regional environment and the normal operation of a pendulum also influence the position. The quartz watch overcomes the weakness of the mechanical watch, and uses the extremely stable high frequency vibration of quartz crystal as the reference of time. Walking time error in quartz + 0.5s (quality), the range of mechanical watch on the error in 15s/d + 120s/d + - even more to some well-known foreign brand watches as an example: imported watches (the export standard for Sir Alex's -25 ~ +29s/d, -30 ~ +120s/d - 4 women, 5 Table Pronto (Pronto), Nivida (Nivada), certina (Certina), Yingnage (Enicar), Santos (Sandoz), Titus (Titus), the general requirements for the standard workshop and sellers time less than week + 45s/d, 2 ~ 3 class table such as plum (Titoni), Malaysia (Syma), Morocco (lines Marvin), Deluxe (Heuer) for less than +30s/d, such as high-end Rolex (Rolex), OMEGA (Omega), Longines (Longines) is less than 15s/d, the import of Japanese watches, men are generally less than 50s/d, women less than 60s/d. The above data are for reference only. If you used a quartz watch, please don't be surprised on the high error of mechanical watch, you can not have it both ways, many people are not mechanical complex can replace quartz watch. On the other hand, you can choose quartz watch if you have high requirement for time precision.
