5 Tips For Taking Care Of Your Automatic Watch

August 18th, 2021

Your most prized possessions need the time, care, attention, and exquisite upkeep they deserve.

After investing in an automatic timepiece, the last thing you want to do is let it wither away. At Davidson & Licht, we want your luxury piece to perform just as well as it did the first day you purchased it.

Our jewelry store in Walnut Creek, California is here to make sure your automatic watch stays pristine and functional as it begins to age over time. Whether you own a designer watch or a pre-owned watch, use our five tips to start taking care of your cherished timepieces today:


  1. Service Your Watch Regularly

Every couple of years, it’s important to service your piece with the help of an expert in repairs. Luxury pieces are complex gadgets that require proper care and maintenance to keep them running smoothly and efficiently.

Whether you need your timepiece serviced, repaired, or replaced, Davidson & Licht has endless service options for you to choose from.


  1. Actually, Wear It

Why invest in something if you aren’t going to use it? Get the most out of your timepiece by wearing it regularly. Not only does wearing an elegant item bring joy to you personally, but it also keeps it working. Men’s timepieces and women’s watches are kept running by subtle movements, such as moving your wrist from side-to-side. By wearing your item, it experiences constant action and thereby keeps “ticking”!


  1. Store Your Piece Safely

If you don’t wear your leisure design daily, keep it safe and sound in the box it came in or in your own personal jewelry box. Keep your timepiece out of direct sunlight and away from moisture to avoid damage as well. Avoid stacking on top of each other to prevent scratches and instead consider lining them side-by-side to avoid any future scrapes or accidents.

  1. Clean Your Watch

Help preserve your timepiece by washing and cleaning it occasionally with a cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals that could potentially damage your piece and instead opt for soapy water and a soft brush.

Don’t attempt to polish your piece, as this should only be done by a certified expert. If you are hesitant to clean your piece yourself, Davidson & Licht will be happy to help guide you through the proper cleaning process.


  1. Enjoy it!

Enjoy the bliss of sporting your automatic piece with your everyday look. Whether you are indoors, outdoors, hanging on the couch, or jetting off to meetings, your pristine style is sure to complement any outfit and any situation. By taking care of your timepiece, you will get to enjoy your sentimental piece for years to come.
