Solid gold pocket watch care

Solid gold pocket watch care is crucial to the life of your precious watch.  There are many things to be aware of and steps you should take in order to keep your pocket watch in the best possible condition.  The first is keeping it clean on a regular basis.  Gold pocket watches, just like any other piece of gold jewelry, should be cleaned with a jewelers wipe at least once a month.  Gold will not tarnish, however, over time it will start to become dull and less luxurious.  A good monthly cleaning with a jewelers wipe will tend to keep that shine around for much longer time.

If the solid gold pocket watch is a “hunter-style” watch then you should ensure that you do not open the case too far.  By putting old-pocket-watchtoo much resistance on the cover, you could damage the hinges which will not allow it to close properly and in turn leave the pocket watch vulnerable to further damage.

Definitely do not submerge a pocket watch into water.  This could damage the gears and cause the watch to stop working.  An occasional rain drop here or there can be wiped off without causing any damage to the watch.

If your solid gold pocket watch is a “wind-up” watch, you do not want to wind it too far.  If you wind it until it stops, then that is too far.  They should be wound daily, however, not too much or you could cause damage to the movement of the watch, or the stem.

When carrying a pocket watch, be careful not to leave it in your pocket with things that could scratch the watch.  Things like keys, knives, and change should be carried in the other pocket or you will be taking a chance of scratching the surface.

These are some of the more important step in solid gold pocket watch care.  If you follow these tips, you will feel much better, without worrying whether you are damaging you pocket watch or not.
