If you want to buy authentic Breitling Chronomat, you also have to understand how to take care of it. The watch is very expensive so making sure that you can maintain it well is definitely the right thing to do. Thankfully, taking care of your Chronomat is not difficult at all. Here are some important things you need to do.
Watch for Extreme Temperatures
Chronomat, and all Breitling watches in general, is designed to function in temperatures between 0 degree to 50 degree Celcius. If you expose your Chronomat to higher temperature for a long time, the battery will be compromised. And if you bring it to a very cold area below 0 degree Celcius, there will be a problem with the precision.
You need to clean the watch regularly to prevent dust from accumulation, especially if your skin is prone to irritation. To clean your Chronomat, simply prepare a toothbrush and liquid soap. Brush the watch carefully and then rinse with water until clean. You can also use the same method to clean Chronomat with leather strap. However, make sure the water will not touch the leather because it can compromise the quality of the leather in the long run. If you accidentally splash the leather strap with water, simply wipe it immediately with a clean cloth.
Beware of Shocks
Breitling watches are made to last. It is very strong, durable and it will stay in good condition even with intensive daily use. However, it doesn’t mean that you can treat the watch harshly. You still need to give it a good care. Make sure you don’t drop the watch or bump it into hard objects. Even though the watch is very durable, hard shocks can still mess up with the mechanism and precision of the watch, not to mention the glass may break too.
