Care Instructions
How do I clean my jewelry or accessories?


Clean items with a soft cloth, like the one you would use on a pair of eyeglasses. Any jewelry that comes in contact with makeup or a lot of moisturizers should be wiped down daily. 

Watch Bands

1.  Wipe it down

Start by wiping down the watch band with a soft cloth to remove initial layers of dirt, dust or grime. You can use a paper towel for this, but a microfiber or chamois cloth is recommended. In a pinch, a clean dish towel or t-shirt hem will work just fine, but likely won’t remove as much grime as a finer, softer cloth.

2. Dip the band in warm soapy water

First it’s important to note that you want lukewarm water, not hot or steaming water. And here’s why: temperature fluctuations can cause the acetate or steel band to expand or contract, potentially allowing water to loosen the band and damage the delicate components inside. Even the most robust and water-resistant watch bands can fail after an evening in the hot tub or sauna, and most watch manufacturers recommend against showering with your watch on your wrist because of the exposure to water above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

So to clean your watch, fill up a sink basin or clean bowl with lukewarm water. A short soak and some gentle wiping with a cloth should remove most grime from your watch. If not, you can add a drop of antibacterial dish soap to the water. Dish soap is formulated to dissolve grease, which is why it works to remove oils and debris.

3. Gently scrub the bracelet links

Use a damp, clean toothbrush to get into the crevices of the watch bracelet. Be mindful of how much pressure you apply, as a heavy hand can cause unwanted scratches.

4. Rinse with warm water

Dip the watch band in warm water or run it under the sink to rinse away the soap. Leaving soap residue can cause it to look dull, while a proper rinse will help preserve the polished surfaces like new.

5. Dry with a soft cloth

Pat the watch band dry with a bath towel, or use a hair dryer on a low-heat setting to quickly dry in between the links. If you wear the watch immediately after you clean and rinse it, your body heat will help get rid of water between bracelet links and in other little nooks and crannies.

How often should you clean your watch?

If you wear your watch every day, give it a deep clean once a month. The most meticulous watch wearers will wipe down their timepieces daily. Use a soft cloth to wipe down the inside of the band, plus the back and front of the case. This will help remove any excess moisture or lotion that rubbed off your skin and onto the watch throughout the day. Regular maintenance and care for your watch band will make your monthly deep cleaning even easier.
