Do your upkeep right?
In daily wearing, various pressure and stress on the watch, for instant, vibration, impact, dust, moisture, ultraviolet radiation, sweat and temperature fluctuations. With the 24 hours precise and continued operation for several years, movement abundant the mechanical load.
In order to solve the problems: the wearing of certain moving parts, meanwhile, the natural aging of oil and lubricants, the wearer should maintain the watch about once every two years, at the same time, there will conduct a whole inspection for the watch every five years.
Is it a anti-magnetic watch?
In principle, you should avoid exposing the watch to magnetic fields, regardless of length of time. Any mechanical movement contains parts that can be magnetized. More significant, whether the magnetism depends on the strength of the magnetic field. But, if you wear IWC Engineer or Pilot series watch, you don’t have to worry about these. These series watches are equipped with extra soft iron inner shell anti-magnetic devices to protect the magnetic field more effectively. Even so, it is necessary to averting the watch expose to a magnetic field for a long time, in order to save the life of your watch.
Is the strap you chose really suitable for you?
Watch straps are mostly leather, metal, of course, it also has rubber material. For IWC, leather straps are specially crafted in calfskin, buffalo leather and crocodile skin. Because the purpose that IWC always sticking is “do not use leather of endangered and protected species as a production material.” Of course, the crocodile leathers involved here are obtained from regular inspections, comprehensive monitoring of licensed US farms. Leather straps are more skin-friendly and easy to match making them the preferred choice for many watch enthusiasts.
Is there a conflict between watch and sports?
In principle, you should avoid violent vibrations and impacts, such as golf or tennis, cross-country cycling, etc. Mechanical watches are precision instruments that require tolerances of a few hundredths or even thousands of millimeters in the manufacturing process. Repeated and violent impacts will have a negative impact on the precision of the movement and may even damage the movement.
Is it Gems movement?
The “gemstone” used in the watch is not a natural precious stone but is made of industrial ruby. The role is to reduce wear and tear on the day-to-day operation of machinery. Although the watchmaking industry used natural rubies in the past, basic synthetic rubies with the same characteristics and higher homogeneity are basically used.
30m-waterproof watch is a diving watch？
The water resistance of the IWC watch is measured in bar instead of meters.
The use of meters for waterproof performance does not mean that the watch can indeed be used in wet environments as well as in water or underwater.
3ATM (3BAR/30m) waterproof, it means that it is suitable for daily use and cannot be used for swimming for a long time; it can resist a small amount of hand-washing to splash water and rain.
The 5ATM (5BAR/50m) is waterproof, which means that it is suitable for short-range swimming in the shallows and cannot be used for diving or snorkeling.
The 10ATM (10BAR/100m) is waterproof, which means it is suitable for swimming and snorkeling.
20ATM (20BAR/200m) waterproof, it means that it is suitable for high impact sports in the water and some diving activities such as snorkeling.
