Not sure if your watch is water resistant or was it at one time and is no longer? Allow the experts at Watch Technicians to help. The durability of a watch often comes from being water-resistant, which allows them to endure everyday exposure to water from washing hands to taking a shower or swimming. The Water Resistance Testing and Restoration service provided at Watch Technicians evaluates and, if necessary, restores a watch’s water resistance.
Water Resistance Testing Methods at Watch Technicians
In the Water Resistance Testing at Watch Technicians, our team of experts will use one of two processes to determine the water resistance of your watch. One such testing utilizes a dry pressure tester that is connected to a compressor. The compressor supplies air to the chamber in order to test a watch’s water rating at various depths. Another method used at Watch Technicians involves a machine that utilizes a special internal program. In this machine, water resistance is verified by a two-step process consisting of vacuum and positive pressure in an enclosed chamber.
The Restoration Process for Leaky Watches
If a leak has been found, the watch technician will begin restoring this feature. First, they’ll open the case and inspect the seals to determine if there is any damage that could have compromised the watch’s water resistance. Many times they’ll need to replace the gaskets, a crucial part in maintaining the case’s watertight seal. As part of Watch Technicians Water Resistance Restoration service, our technicians will use high-quality gaskets, specific to each brand for optimal fit and maximum water resistance.
Post-Repair Water Resistance Verification
Once repairs are made, a second round of water resistance testing will be done. This verifies that the repairs were successful and that the watch is again water resistant. Before going home with your watch, your technician will spend some time with you to explain how to maintain this feature. Guidelines for water resistance include special handling around water as well as scheduling routine resistance checks.
