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.

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.

Guess Steel Water resistant is not water resistant!!!


Water resistant does not mean water proof. You should never wear this watch while bathing, swimming or in sauna.
Any watchmaker will be able to remove any condensation and dry out your watch - no matter you are in the U.S.A. or Romania.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help.

Rate, please.

Armitron wr165 ladies watch


WR 165 simply means Water Resistant to 165 feet. The model of your watch is stamped on the back of the watch face.

Check out this website for possible instructions, and at least they can sort of help you get started....
