Swarovski watches are crafted with care, and they require special care to retain their magic and brilliance. Find out how to care for and clean your Swarovski watch in this simple guide.
Caring for your Swarovski watch
All our watches are crafted in a traditional way and are therefore very delicate. Each stone is individually set, and the metal may be coated or plated. Follow these care instructions for how to clean your Swarovski watch to keep it looking its best.
How to clean a Swarovski watch
Follow these steps to clean your watch and maintain its brilliance:
Wash and dry your hands.
Use a lint-free cloth* and gentle circular motions to carefully polish the entire watch, including the case and dial.
Use the same technique on leather straps and metal bracelets.
If possible, clean frequently to remove any dirt or other signs of daily wear. Polishing regularly can maintain your watch’s lustrous finish.
More tips for wearing and caring for your Swarovski watch
• Please read the accompanying operation instructions manual carefully to ensure you know your watch’s characteristics, including its level of water resistance. • Store your watch in its original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratching. This also helps to reduce exposure to sunlight, humidity, and excessive heat, which could fade colour or shorten battery life. • Always remove your watch before applying body care products such as perfume, hairspray, soaps, and lotions. These liquids can damage the metal and reduce the lifetime of the plating or coating, as well as cause discolouration and loss of brilliance. • Make sure to replace weak or dead batteries as soon as possible, as they may leak fluids that can damage the watch’s movement. To replace the battery, please entrust your watch to an authorized Swarovski retailer that sells Swarovski watches, a watchmaker, or a jeweller. • Put on your watch last when dressing and take it off first when undressing. We also recommend that you do not wear your Swarovski watch in bed or when exercising.
Things to avoid
• Avoid contact with water and other fluids – especially acidic liquids, sonic cleaners, and commercial jewellery cleaners containing ammonia or alcohol. These types of liquid can damage both the plating or coating and the crystals. • Avoid impacts and shocks to protect the case, crystals, and movement from damage. Take care to avoid scratches and chips if wearing your watch together with bracelets on the same wrist. • Avoid magnetic fields, which can affect the timekeeping performance of a mechanical watch. Computers, smartphones, and even handbags can contain magnets.
Swarovski watches are intended to be worn and enjoyed every day. With such regular wear, you may want to replace your watch strap on occasion. Replacement straps are available to purchase online and can also be ordered from most authorized Swarovski retailers.
