Luxurious and iconic – two very fitting words to describe the Swiss TAG Heuer watches. Whether you wear your TAG Heuer watch everyday, only take it out for special occasions or bought it as a collector’s item, you’ll want to make sure you care for it properly. In this following guide, we explore all things related to TAG Heuer watch care, including how often you should clean your timepiece and have it serviced.
How do you clean your TAG Heuer?
You should generally aim to clean your TAG Heuer watch every 2 to 3 months. Before cleaning your timepiece, you should firstly make sure that its crown is tightly screwed on. If the seals of your watch have been checked within the last 12 months, take a soft brush and add some soapy water to clean the watch’s case and strap. However, it is recommended that you should not do this if your strap is made from leather, fabric, python or alligator skin.
After cleaning your watch case and strap, rinse it with some water and use a soft, clean cloth to dry it off. If you’re unsure about the seals or if your watch isn’t fully water-resistant, we recommend cleaning your watch with a dry, soft brush. It’s important not to use chemical products as they may damage your watch strap and the water-resistant seals.
If you’d rather leave it to the professionals, you can always take your watch to an authorised TAG Heuer cleaning service.
What can I do about condensation?
Should you be in an area where the temperature suddenly changes, you may see a build-up of condensation in your TAG Heuer watch. The condensation will disappear relatively quickly and won’t affect the overall functioning of your watch. Should this become a continuous problem, you should take your watch to an authorised TAG Heuer watch repair centre or dealer. In most cases, however, it’s actually quite easy to defog your timepiece yourself.
How can I make my TAG Heuer watch strap last longer?
A key measure you can take to make your TAG Heuer watch strap last longer is to try and prevent it from coming into contact with water. Interaction with water can spell disaster and could mean you have to replace your timepiece on a more regular basis. As well as this, it’s important to know that leather strap watch straps will need replacing as its colour naturally fades over time.
What happens to the water resistance of my TAG Heuer?
Over time, the water resistance of your TAG Heuer Watch can deteriorate. This is because its gaskets are under permanent pressure to ensure that no water enters your timepiece. To make sure that the seals are intact, be sure to take your watch for an annual check-up. Ensure that this check up includes bench and pressure tests, to ensure through maintenance and overall care of your watch.
TAG Heuer Watch Service
You should take your TAG Heuer to a TAG Heuer watch service centre every 1 to 2 years to maintain your watch’s water resistance. Every 4 to 6 years, your TAG Heuer will need a complete overhaul to make sure that it continues to function at its very best. The cost of a TAG Heuer watch service will depend on the type of TAG Heuer Watch you have – have a read of the full UK price list.
How to protect your TAG Heuer when you’re not wearing it?
How you protect your TAG Heuer when you’re not wearing it depends on the type of timepiece that you have.
If you have an automatic TAG Heuer watch, you should wind the mainspring manually or use an automatic watch winder. This is important, as it ensures the lubricating oil remains fluid.
