  • 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

  • Hope this helps!!

    Condensation/water in watch?

    A watch with condensation under the glass needs to go to a watchmaker without delay, even if the condensation disappears again after a short time. This is one of the worst things that can happen to a watch. It means that minute quantities of water have penetrated the case but the seals are still tight enough to prevent it from evaporating. What you have on your wrist is in effect a miniature hothouse, where the water condenses at the coolest point. The constant damp atmosphere inside the case is very corrosive and, at worst, can destroy the movement. Without watchmakers knowledge there is no way anyone can dry the watch out and not to damage it, so, rush to your nearest watch repair shop as quick as possible.

    I put my 1962 Omega Seamaster (leather band, dress watch) through the washing machine... any ideas?

    If you wear it and do not see condensation on the crystal then it is likely OK. Many watches are at least water resistant which may keep water out for shallow immersion. You should not attempt to open these watches yourself as they are a bit trick from what I can find.

    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.

    Condensation on inside of face, how do I stop it from happening? and how did it get there in the first place? Watch is less than a year old, Timex indigo WR 30M

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
