5 Timepiece Safety Tips Infographic

Despite the frightful weather outside, you can still wear your luxury watch during the cold winter months without worrying. There are several ways to protect your expensive timepiece without storing it away until late Spring. Learn some useful tips for keeping your timepieces safe in frigid conditions. First, It’s important to familiarize yourself with your watch. Instead of struggling with its functions when you need them or waiting for issues to arise, take the time to read or watch information about how your timepiece works before wearing it. Pay attention to temperature changes. If it’s cooler outside than indoors, you may see fog on your watch crystal when you leave the house. This is normal and usually disappears within seconds if you cover your timepiece with your sleeve or gloves. It’s important to prevent slips, trips, and falls. While your watch can’t help you avoid slipping on ice or falling into a snowbank, taking precautions can help protect your watch from damage. Wear sturdy, slip-resistant shoes and thick gloves when you’re out and about. Consider opting for non-metal straps during winter. While a stainless steel strap attached to your IWC Ingenieur looks sharp, wearing metal bracelets in cold weather can be uncomfortable and heavy. Instead, consider belt straps, silicone, rubber, or leather, which are lighter and more comfortable in colder conditions. Lastly, be aware of static electricity. Cold air carries less water vapor than warm air, meaning your body holds onto a greater electrical charge. This is why we experience more shocks from static electricity in winter than in summer. By following these tips, you can ensure that your luxury watch remains safe and functional throughout the cold winter months, allowing you to enjoy its elegance and precision regardless of the weather.
