Why watch get foggy after go in water


Moisture is getting into the case under the crystal. A jewelry store might be able to tighten the case or replace a gasket. It would be better not to wear it in the water unless this is repaired.

Watch has film inside the glass. Also, the finish has began to decay in appearance.


The film is from moisture getting into your watch. Moisture can get in one of 3 ways generally. The crystal if cracked, the crown, or the back. In your case since you have buttons for the mulch-functions of the watch you add a possible place for moisture to enter. Take the watch to a watchmaker or watch repair person. Your watch has to be taken out of the case and the case needs to be cleaned. Next the watch tec. may be able to see just where the seals failed and replace them. We of course do this. Also if the gasket is old or out of shape this is a culprit as well.
Hope this helps, gabe

Water (vapor) under the crystal


Water condensation on the inside of your watch crystal means that moisture has entered your watch, most likely through the hole in which the setting crown/stem is fitted, or, possibly, through the door of your battery compartment. It's usually easier for water to enter a watch then to leave it again. Water inside a watch can quickly corrode delicate parts, causing erratic timekeeping and premature failure of the watch, so you'll want to get it out of your watch as quickly as possible.

Fortunately, it's not that difficult to get moisture out of a Swatch. Pull the crown out into the time setting position and remove the back battery hatch. Then, turn the watch face down and leave it in the sun for a few hours. If you're worried about dust and/or rain getting into your watch, leave it inside a parked car that's in the sun--that will actually speed up the drying process, as car interiors, with the windows closed, quickly heat up far beyond outside ambient temperatures (except in winter). If it's dark outside, you can accelerate the drying process by using a hair dryer set to low / medium heat and heating the crystal gently until the moisture has evaporated. You don't want to heat the crystal too much or else it may start to melt or crack.

Once the water is out of the watch, close up the battery compartment and update the time/date for your watch. You should be good to go, as long as you try to keep your watch dry when doing things like washing hands and the like. If you had been doing so, it's also time to stop wearing your watch when you shower, wash your car, or engage in other activities where the watch is exposed to a lot of water.

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.

Water under crystal


Obviously you have moisture inside the watch. If the crystal is not cracked then moisture can get in around the stem if the seal is no longer good. Although also possible is from a bad seal on the case back. These seals need to be replace every 3 to 4 years and then properly lubricated with a special silicon grease. With time, the seals will tend to flatten out and the grease will dry out. So get it serviced before the moisture will permanently damage it. Also. 330 ft is if you decend slowly. If you jump in a pool or subject it to a heavy spray, like in a shower, that is another story and they don't always keep the water out then.

I can't get the cover to close on a timex watch.


I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:
  • small board
  • cushy mousepad (to avoid scarring and crystal breakage
  • watch crystal facing mousepad
  • watch back in correct position
  • ratchet socket the same diameter as watch back centered behind cover
Slowly I positioned all these items with minimal pressure. Then when I was sure that I was ready (and prepared to hear the crystal break) I put as little pressure closing the vise that I could. The I heard a snap, and to my relief, it was the back going in!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!

A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!

Hope this helped.
Good luck!!!!

Submariner water under crystal


You definetely have to ask for watchmakers help to dry out your watch properly. Moisture may not be visible to your eye, but it's still in the watch case and ruins your watch movement permanently and quite quick.
Sooner or later your watch will stop or show some other faults, but by that time the price for repair can be sky-high.
I've been replacing whole movements, just because the owners thought it's not a big deal or didn't want to pay for such a job. It just sounds 'drying out', but actually it's not, as watch must be disassembled completely (incl. movement), cleaned, oiled and properly re-adjusted.
Rolex repairs has never been cheap, but better do it as soon as possible.
Do not forget to rate, please.
