Easy fix, you just need to take the watch back off and let it dry. More help here: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Remove-Moisture-From-a-Watch

SOURCE: Condensation on inside of face, how do I stop it

mcdevito75, Some watches are waterproof, shockproof, and so on. But, no watch is air proof, Believe it or not air is always in your watch and---all air contains water, hot air, cold air, Heat up air and you seperate the water, the air in your watch gets hot on your wrist then cools when you go outside or when you take off the watch. The condensation you see is the tempersture change of the air in your Timex, Believe it or not. It really can"t be stopped, If you can or have a small watch repir shop remove the back and put in another seal around the back cover this should help. Try to keep your watch at a constant temp.

It is sometimes possible to get rid of moisture by putting the watch in a warm place and leaving it there overnight.

If this has not effect, then the watch needs to be opened to dry it out.

As moisture has entered the watch, then it would appear that the seal in the back or the winder is no longer effective and it may need replacing.

SOURCE: i put in new battery

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!

Condensation is NOT good. THe crown may have not been cosed all the way, you may have banged the cryatal a little too hard without knowing it. Condensation inside your watch will cause rust and corrosion on the gears inside. You should take it to a local jewelry store or watchmaker ASAP!

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 have condensation on the inside of the glass on my watch. I have a pr50 automatic so i don't know if the normal jeweler will be able to fix it. It doesn't have a battery and was recomneded to me to send...


  • Decide whether the risk of possibly damaging the watch is worth attempting a do-it-yourself fix. If the watch is expensive, you may want to have a professional repair it rather than risk damaging the watch or invalidating the manufacturer's warranty.
  • Step 2 Lay the watch in a dry place in sunlight and see if the water evaporates on its own. Put a piece of soft, absorbent cloth such as a towel under the watch. If the water inside the watch face is only a fine film of condensation that clears on its own after a short time, you probably do not need to do anything else.
  • Step 3 Seal the watch in a plastic bag filled with unopened packets of silica gel desiccant. These are the packets that come in shoe boxes and other packaged items. You can also use dry rice instead of the silica gel packets. Leave the bag somewhere warm and dry for a few days. The silica gel packets or rice can help draw out the water from inside the watch.
  • Step 4 Direct a fan at the watch or use a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting to blow air on the watch. Alternatively, if you can safely leave the watch on top of a low heat source such as a floor vent or radiator, this can help evaporate the water from inside the watch.
  • Step 5 Obtain the appropriate watch repair supplies. If you need to purchase tools, look for these at a watch repair shop or at a jewelry store. You can also find watch repair tools online. You may need small, fine-tipped screwdrivers and watch openers and closers.
  • Step 6 Take off the back of the watch, as if you were changing the battery. Use care not to scratch or damage any of the mechanisms such as the coil or stem. Let the watch dry thoroughly in the open air until there is no trace of moisture. Reassemble the watch once it is dry and press the seal firmly back into place. If the seal does not fit tightly, you may need to replace it

    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.

    Condensation


    On most watches, if you get condensation within the face, means that there is a small crack on the glass/plastic covering. Some watches you can take apart from the back and pull out the workings and replace this casing, on others, you have to take it to the jewelers to have it replaced. Depending on how much you paid for the watch, you are better off buying a whole new one.
