What should I be careful about daily care and use?
Watch bodies and bands (metallic or leather) may cause stain on sleeve edges due to dirt and/or rust, or skin irritation due to allergic reactions for those who have sensitive skins. Keep watches clean.
In addition, if rust forms in pins used in adapters that connect a watch body and a band or in metallic band links, the band may loosen, the watch body may fall off the band, or it even cause injury in rare cases.
Adjust the band to allow a little clearance with your wrist to ensure airflow. When wearing the watch, leave enough room to insert a finger between the band and your wrist.
Do not use solvents including benzine and paint thinner, chemicals, or bleach for cleaning.
- Moisture, sweat or dirt may cause rust on metallic bands including stainless steels and gold plating if they are left for a long time. Because some titan bracelets use pins made of high-intensity stainless steels, rust may form in the stainless steel parts.
Wipe off moisture or sweat with a soft and hygroscopic cloth and keep watches in a place that allows ventilation to dry them well.
Wash bands with diluted neutral detergent or soapy water using a soft brush occasionally. Keep the watch body away from water if your watch is rated as "non-water resistant."
- For leather bands, wipe off moisture or sweat with a soft and hygroscopic cloth and keep watches in a place that allows ventilation to dry them well.
A deteriorated leather band needs to be replaced. A leather band is susceptible to deterioration gradually even though the watch is unused.
- Synthetic rubbers such as polyurethane and plastic bands may crack, break, or deteriorate.
Wash bands with diluted neutral detergent or soapy water using a soft brush occasionally.
When a band becomes less flexible, have the band replaced with a new one. If you continue to use the band as it is, it may crack or become brittle over time.
