Question about Seiko Titanium SMY042 Wrist Watch
I left my watch in the shower and steam got in it. What can i do to fix it?
Whilst I Agree with Shilon, This will not fix the problem.
Problems occur with steam and rubber seals. This is what you probably were NOT told when you bought the time piece. The seals you have in the watch are rubber and rubber and steam don't mix. On top of that you have heat acting upon your watch, which will make the watch case expand (ever so slightly) and steam will pass through it and the seals!. Also you have soap and shampoo etc and due to the expanded case will seep right through!.
I deal with this problem daily, so please in future heed the above information !. As for your current problem can I will assume you have followed Shilon's advice? If you see rust in the movement you will need a minimum service and seal kit (all seals replaced), even after a while rust can still form after you have dried out the watch.
Take to your local watchmaker for a quote.
