The watch is in the water. Is this really reliable?

In daily life, it is very normal for the watch to enter the water. However, how should the watch be handled correctly when it enters the water? Take a look.


  1. Is it really reliable to do this after the watch enters the water?


Put in rice


After the watch enters the water, the watch is placed directly in the rice. This is the method circulating on the Internet, but is it really useful?


Since the lower bottom cover and the watch are completely sealed, the water inside will definitely have a large amount of water vapor inside, so if you really want to thoroughly clean the residual moisture inside, only pull out the crown, but If it is put into the rice, the rice dust inside will be absorbed into the movement of the core of the watch, which will affect the normal function of the movement. Therefore, the watch is put into the rice after entering the water. Not very reliable.


  1. Seal the desiccant with the watch


Sealing the desiccant with the watch, this method sounds very reasonable. After all, the food we usually eat is also used to retain the water through the desiccant.


However, before we can think about it, the evaporation of water requires certain conditions. Only in the environment of high temperature and air circulation, the water can evaporate more quickly. If our watch enters the water, it will be Sealing it with the desiccant, the watch is completely in a tight airtight state, such an environment can not help to remove the evaporation of water in the watch, because the watch after entering the water is sealed with the desiccant At the time, the evaporation and direction of the internal environment inside are not changed at all, so it is not possible to completely remove the moisture from the watch.


  1. Put the watch after entering the water in reverse


Wearing the watch in reverse is also a suggested method of communication on the Internet. Its main purpose is to completely evaporate the moisture in the mirror by the temperature on our body.


However, there is no scientific basis for doing so. Why? Because if you understand the detailed design structure in our watch, you will understand that it is not reliable, and this way the watch is worn in reverse, have you considered the feeling of the strap? This will cause damage to the strap.

  1. Bake with a light bulb and blow-dry with a hairdryer


Bake it with a light bulb or blow it directly with a hairdryer. Using the principle of heating the watch after entering the water, the water vapor inside will slowly disappear, which seems to be quite reasonable.


However, there are many high-end watches that are better sealed, so the residual moisture inside is not so easy to discharge. If the residual water vapor is not discharged, it will cause a great hidden danger to the use of the movement. If the spare parts in the long part will rust or have abnormal functions, then such maintenance costs may be higher, so this method is only a simple solution to the problem.


In summary: the above methods all sound very simple and very practical, but it can be guaranteed that these methods can not completely discharge the moisture inside the watch, so it is still necessary Careful handling.


Second, the correct treatment of the water into the watch


If the watch really enters the water and wants to achieve the standard and cure the problem, the only way is to send the watch to the watch shop immediately after entering the water, let it wipes the oil, remove the residual moisture in the movement, so as not to cause the internal parts to rust.
