Watch movement as a high-precision timing instruments and decorative arts and crafts, people the proper use and maintenance is crucial, as a watch lover, you really understand how to extend the watch's "life" it? Anti-magnetic watch movement can not be used in a strong magnetic environment? Watch movement maintenance also have "skills"? Do you know all these?
Watch movement can not be used in a strong magnetic environment
General mechanical watch movement of the anti-magnetic ability is only within a limited range to achieve anti-magnetic effect, if it exceeds the anti-magnetic ability, the watch movement of steel parts will be magnetized, hairspring will be affected, resulting in the watch is not accurate , Resulting in slow, fast phenomenon, there will be serious stop. In addition there are many users will ask, then I am not a mechanical movement, is the quartz movement, will it affect? Quartz clock movement in the steel parts, although very little, but the strong magnetic field of the normal operation of the rotor will have interference. Therefore, the general movement of the watch can not be used in a strong magnetic field environment, not to watch the movement on the electromagnet, speakers, generators, transformers and large electrical equipment.
Watch movement can not be stored together with camphor
Camphor (including natural camphor, artificial camphor, coal tar brain) is a highly volatile material. Camphor volatile all the time, placed in the closet and the box of "mothballs" slowly smaller, is the result of camphor volatilization. Camphor volatile molecules easily with the heart of the clock machine lubricant chemical reaction, the deterioration of lubricants lose lubrication. Such watches can not move around, a direct impact on the travel time accuracy and service life. Therefore, everyone's watch should not be stored with camphor. When the watch needs long time storage, should choose dry, clean, not exposed to direct sunlight, and should use the clock every few months to move around, to prevent the time is too long, the oil sticky, affecting travel time.
