   TAKING CARE OF YOUR WATCH

Piaget watches are precious instruments requiring proper care and regular servicing to ensure their accuracy and extend their lifespan.

In this section, we provide you with a few simple gestures to take care of your watch.

Piaget specialists in our boutiques are at your disposal to provide you with personalized maintenance advice.

DAILY CARE TIPS FOR YOUR WATCH

Nine simple tips to keep your watch running perfectly and looking its best.

1. WIND YOUR WATCH REGULARLY

Even if you are not planning on wearing your watch, you should still wind it regularly to prevent the oils from different mechanisms drying out.
- For a manual winding watch, turn the crown until it resists, without forcing it.
- For a self-winding (automatic) watch, we recommend at least 20 turns of the crown.

2. REPLACE YOUR OLD WATCH BATTERY

Avoid leaving a flat battery in a quartz watch. Without being visible on the outside, it could still leak and cause serious damage to the movement.

3. BEWARE OF MAGNETISM

Magnetic fields can affect the correct operation of your watch.
Avoid placing your watch too near objects using magnets, such as TVs, hi-fi equipment, microwaves, and even handbag clasps. In case of doubt, you can have your watch checked by taking it to a Piaget boutique or retailer.

4. CLEAN YOUR WATCH

You can keep your water-resistant watch and its metal bracelet clean with soapy water. Afterwards, rinse and dry it with a soft cloth. This simple gesture limits the abrasive or corrosive effects of chlorine, seawater, dust and cosmetics. Avoid letting leather bracelets come into contact with water.

5. PROTECT YOUR WATCH FROM SHOCKS

We do not recommend wearing your watch while practicing activities that may lead to strong vibrations and impacts. We also recommend protecting your watch from sudden temperature changes.

6. SET THE DATES AND CALENDAR PROPERLY

Do not adjust the date on your watch between 9.00 pm and 3.00 am, to avoid damaging the date change mechanism.

7. STORE AND TRANSPORT YOUR WATCH CAREFULLY

When not wearing your luxury watch, make sure it is correctly stored away from humidity (e.g. bathrooms) and UV exposure, either in its original case or in a Piaget travel pouch (available from boutiques), to protect it from scratches.

8. TAKE PROPER CARE IN WET ENVIRONMENTS

With the exception of a few specific models, including vintage ones, Piaget watches are designed and crafted to be water-resistant. However, you should not activate your watch’s functions (e.g. chronograph) when you are in the water.

9. TREAT LEATHER STRAPS WITH CARE

A leather strap is a natural handcrafted product that requires particular care.
To provide maximum protection for your leather strap, avoid:
- Contact with water or exposure to high humidity,
- extended UV exposure,
- contact with cosmetics or oily products.

DEPOSITING YOUR WATCH FOR MAINTENANCE

To ensure the accuracy and proper functioning of your watch, day-to-day care gestures are fundamental but not completely sufficient. Each Piaget luxury watch is designed to last forever. However, as a complex and constantly moving mechanism, technical care is required at regularly intervals.

The frequency of a watch service depends on a certain number of parameters:
- The frequency of its wear,
- the model,
- the environment in which it is used.
As a rule, we recommend that you confide us your watch for a service every three to four years.

MAINTENANCE SERVICE

This is a periodic maintenance service that involves performing technical and aesthetic operations.
Piaget's watchmakers open the case-back, and replace the gasket. They carry out other adjustments as necessary after in-depth inspections. Finally, they clean the case, metal bracelet and buckle using ultrasonic technology. This service also enables them to identify any malfunctions affecting the smooth running of your watch.
