Relic Watch Fogged Up On The Inside

My Relic ZR77106 watch suddenly and randomly got fogged up under the face piece glass. It will un-fog if i apply hot water over it, but then it just fogs right back up again. I was wondering if there was any way to get under the glass face piece to wipe away the condensation that appears to be causing the issue. I just wanted to know if it was easy enough to do with the proper tools, so i do not have to bring it to a repair shop and get charged more than i paid for the damn watch. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thank you

The problem is that water or humidity is getting into your watch. You either need a new back gasket 9 probibly nicked when changing a battery, or your crown ( the little piece used to change the time) gasket is bad, or you have a crack in your crystal. Turn your crown as if to wind it , if it turns REALLY easy your crown gasket is bad, if not you need to open your watchback and insert a new gasket around the back cover. Make sure that it fits tight ( you probibly have to stretch it a little) and then reclose the watch. The only place I know you can get a seal is at a watch repair shop.

Take it back, the battery must have been changed sometime when it was in the store, and the back has not been sealed correctly. If the store won't take it back I would send to the company. If you don't want to do that, take it to a reputable watchmaker ( NOT A JWEWLER) and have them check out the seal, and how well the back was put on. If you have anymore questions, please feel free to ask. Good Luck!!

I have a relic brand watch model ZR11957 and can't get the back to attach properly after changing battery, how do I fix it?

Did you use a small blade and pry between the back and a small indentation on the rim of the watch to pop it off? If so, its a pressure fit. There should be a rubber gasket around the back, make sure its there and in good shape. Place the watch face down on a pad similar to a rubber computer mouse pad, properly align the case slot with the crown stem and place into position, using both thumbs push down on the back, it should snap into place.

My watch glass fogs when I wear it on cold days

Yeah, it does not say it is waterproof, I have one they are "Water Resistant" to like 165' or some such nonsense. Anyway, if you paid for a warranty you can have it repaired by Diesel, this is the 1st watch I have ever purchased where they ask at the counter if you wish to purchase the manufacturers warranty. Mine was an extra $35 for the warranty. Yours may have been included in the price? If not your choice is deal with the fogging, repair it yourself, or pay a jeweler to repair it properly. You don't necessarily need jeweler's tools to repair it, but it is very easy to gouge the watch without them. New seals are available online. Personally I would take it to a jewelry store that offers watch repair. Your other option is to send it to Diesel, but you'll be paying for shipping/handling plus repair costs without warranty.

Broken Armani sign

Yes it can be fixed but may need a jeweller. You cannot take the glass face out on it own, you have to remove the watch back plate and then pull out the watch mechanism. (Once the back plate is off removing the mechanism is not difficult) You then have access to both the inside glass face and the watch face. If you can do this you will need to glue the Armani logo with something like super glue, but not applied directly to watch, too risky. If you have tweezers hold the Armani logo in them. Use a pin and dip it into a small blob of super glue, apply the pin to the back of the logo and then place it on the watch face as quickly as possible and align. Once aligned apply a little pressure with the tweezers on the logo to help adhere, about 5 seconds, leave to dry and then put watch back together. If this all seems to difficult a jeweller can do it in about ten minutes.

Casio sea pathfinder fogged crystal. Worked in yard. No water exposure other than sweat. Advice please?

condensation inside a watch means the watch's internal temperature and humidity reached dew point.
The watch needs to be disassembled "completely" and dried out. Get the battery OUT! Get a can of dust remover spray and get it dry. You can use some alcohol and a swab to clean it too. But careful, alcohol may act like a solvent and the parts may melt. If its been a few days, it might be too late. If you don't have the tiny tools or patience to do this yourself, try a local jeweler. They'll tell you right up front if its shot or not...

I have moisture in the center of my watch face. It is a circle shape, right in the center of the face. Looks like it is fogged up, like steam.

Hi Its condensation if its a watch with a button to set the hand then pull it out to its max and put your watch in a nice worm place over night would be good.
its important to get it dry as soon as possible to stop it going rusty
If this is useful please rate me
Yours ian

I bought my relic watch last year around christmas time it claims on the back of my watch it is water resistant up to 165 meters i haven't even gone close to that depth for the past 3 months or so my...

The most common failure of a watch to be water resistant is caused by a faulty contact between the case at an opening around the glass, crown, or pushbutton and the opening's gasket. Worn or defective rubber O-rings are often a cause of failure. Condensation forming under the crystal of a watch following a sharp temperature change (a swim after a stretch in the sun, for example) tells you to have the watch checked without delay. This can be an indication of additional moisture elsewhere inside the case. It is also the only water-tightness check a consumer can perform.
Of course non-water-resistant watches don't contain the additional seals and gaskets found on water-resistant models. Consequently, moisture-laden air can easily enter the case. Once inside, a pronounced change in temperature may cause condensation to form under the crystal. Very little can be done to prevent this. A high-quality water-resistant watch, however, properly serviced and maintained, will be sealed to prevent internal water damage and will more than outlast an ordinary watch.
To keep the watch properly sealed, replace any defective parts , such as gaskets, crystals, and crowns. Water-resistant watches should be tested for case tightness at least once a year, as well as every time the watch is opened, such as when a battery is replaced.
