CAN I WASH UP WITH MY WATCH ON?
We do not recommend immersing your Bremont watch in hot soapy water whilst washing up. Chemicals or detergent mixed in the water can lower its viscosity, effectively making the water “thinner” and therefore allowing it to penetrate the seals more easily. Open and exhibition case-back models are particularly susceptible to extremes of temperature so we do not recommend exposure to very hot water. Additionally, leather straps are not waterproof and will be prematurely aged if immersed in water.
CAN I WEAR MY WATCH IN HOT WATER?
Bremont recommends that you do not wear your watch near hot water, for example in a hot shower, steam room or jacuzzi as this can cause moisture to permeate the seals and cause condensation to form inside.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY WATCH?
Bremont watches are put through extensive testing before they leave the workshop and, although they have more than proved their resilience, we want to ensure that the enjoyment that comes from wearing a Bremont timepiece lasts for generations. Therefore, we recommend the following tips are observed:
• Ensure the Crown is pushed in to prevent entry of water into the mechanism.
• Wash with fresh water following exposure to sea water or solvents to avoid damage to seals and strap.
• Avoid contact with electrical equipment and strong magnets (See “What is Magnetisation”)
• Keeping the watch in contact with your wrist will help minimize any exposure to extremes of temperature which can cause moisture to permeate the seals and cause condensation to form inside.
