Preventive Maintenance


What should I do to ensure that my watch continues to provide excellent service for many years?

 

Magnetic fields: avoid placing your watch on speakers or refrigerators, since these have strong magnetic fields.

 

Bathing in the sea: always rinse your watch with warm water afterwards.

 

Shocks: whether thermal or other, avoid them.

 

Screw-in-crown: screw it in carefully to ensure that no water enters the mechanism.

 

Cleaning: for metal bracelets and for all water resistant cases use a toothbrush with soapy water and a soft cloth for drying.

Chemical products: avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetic products etc., since they may damage the bracelet, the case or the gaskets.

 

Temperatures: avoid extreme temperatures above 60C or 140F below 0C or 32F or extreme temperature changes.

 

Chronograph push-pieces:
Do not operate chronograph pushers under water in order to prevent water entering the mechanism.
Exception: The Seamaster 300M and 600M chronographs have pushers which can function under water.

Service Intervals
What are the service intervals?
Like any high-precision instrument, a watch needs to be serviced regularly in order to work perfectly. Obviously, we cannot indicate the intervals for such work, which depends on the model, climate and the care taken by the watch's owner. As a general rule, service intervals are between 4 and 5 years, depending on the use of the watch.

MIGAGA recommends that you follow the steps below in order to preserve the condition of your leather strap as long as possible:
1. Avoid contact with water and dampness to prevent discoloration and deformation.
2. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight to prevent the colour from fading.
3. Do not forget that leather is permeable! Therefore avoid contact with greasy substances and cosmetic products.
4. If you have a problem with your leather strap, please contact your nearest OMEGA retailer.
5. In spite of the fact that the life expectancy of leather (as an organic material) is limited in time (sweat, wear and tear etc.) a leather strap should last for a period of about 6 months, without alteration of its aesthetic look.
