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 put in new battery and now the watch gets condensation on inside of the crystal and the watch stops sometimes.


quite possibly, the case back has a gasket on it, and when you replaced the back, the gasket got squished and is not creating a good seal. you are going to need to have your watch serviced soon as the condensation that is forming, is slowly going to start turning into rust on your gears, as it dries. if you cannot take it in for service, then try taking the back off the watch, and checking the gasket on the case back, if there is none, then could it be possible, it shot off without you even seeing it? it has happened to me before. you are going to need to put one on there. if the gasket looks fine to the naked eye, then possibly it never got lined up properly, and just smooth it over with your finger and snap the back on again. i hope this helped!

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.

WHEN EVER IT GET HUMID MY MOVADO HAS WATER BUBBLES INSIDE THE CRYSTAL. IT TAKES DAYS FOR THE WATER BUBBLES TO CLEAR?


mcdevito75 here, This is condensation, the difference in air temperature inside and outside your Movado watch, no watch is air proof, Humid means water in the air, the higher the humidity the more water is in the air. As the humid air enters your Movado it cools thus leaveing water behind, very much like boiling water, we see the steam, but put a cover over it and we see water, the hot air hitting the cover cools and turns back to water. However in your Movado this is too much and over time your watch will become water logged and be no good, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area and have them re-seal the crystal and back cover of your Movado watch, also chek if your watch is still under warrantee, if so the re-seal should be free.

Condensation in crystal of eco watch


If there is water in the watch, it's going to quit working sooner or later. If sooner, then the watch (at least the back) will have to be opened anyway. If later, then there will likely be some rust that could cause the watch to never work again.

In the meantime, I'd advise putting the watch near some dry heat -- like a radiant room heater, or maybe a hair dryer. Don't "burn it up" trying to dry out the water. You don't want the crystal to melt, etc.

Water in a watch is bad. The best solution would be to have it repaired now.

I hope this helps!

CharlieJ
