Moisture in the face plate

There is some moisture under the face plate of my relic zr66001 watch. Is there any way that I can take care of it myself or do I have to take it to a jeweler?

You HAVE to bring your watch to watch repair shop as the moisture in watch can dissapear for an eye, but it will still there and can affect your watch to function properly.
Do not try to dry out watch yourself as the temperature changes can affect the watch as well.
Find your nearest watch repair shop as quick as you can because that moisture is shortening your watch life very quickly.
Don't forget to rate, please.

Moisture is never a good thing in any watch as detrimental corrosion is sure to follow. First of all it must have got in there from a bad case back seal or a bad stem seal or maybe a crack in your crystal. So the watch needs to be taken apart and it should be cleaned and properly lubricated. During this process it should be examined for any corrosion and any moisture removed. Then it will need to be resealed with new O-rings and tested for any leaks. Find a reputable shop to do this for you. Best of Luck.

You need to remove the back plate and leave it sit in a warm, dry area for 24 hours to allow the moisture inside the watch to evaporate.

Hi, i was caught in a thunder shower and since then i have moisture cloud under my face dial of the watch.please guide me to remove the moisture cloud . a.jarrahian


Best thing to do is remove the back and let it air dry for a few hours or until the cloud is gone, but it means your back or stem gasket needs replacing. You can use a hair dryer to speed the process. Keep an eye on the heat.

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.

Moisture under lense


Moisture can sometimes be removed by putting your watch in a warm place and leaving there for a day or so.

If it persists, then it may be necessary to remove the back of the watch. This is usually best left to a jeweler, especially if it is a waterproof type, as the seals can be difficult to re-fit. If your watch is still under warranty, then you may invalidate the warranty if you try any self repairs.

Getting moisture under the face of the watch just from wearing. This is not putting it in water at all


This usually happens when the watch is carried from low temperature to the room with higher temperature and it's called condensation. You need to dry out your watch and check if all the gaskets are in tact, flexible and lubricated. Don't leave it for a long, as later those tiny drops of condensate will sit down on gear wheels, causing them to rust and as a consequence will stop the watch working. Any watch repair shop will be able to help within a matter of an hour.

If qz. see previous answer. If it's mechanical and absolutely all the moisture is not eradicated then rust may begin to form and will over time cause damage. So if it's mechanical take it to a watchmaker for servicing asap.
