With an estimated growth rate of about 4% year-over-year, the watch market is expected to reach $11.5 billion by 2020. That’s because high-end watches are an eye-catching and luxurious status symbol that people instantly take notice of. Patek Philippe watches are among the most upscale and valuable watches available, but that being said, it’s critical to maintain them properly. Here are just a few tips to keep in mind when caring for new or used Patek Philippe watches.

Wind Properly
Watches that need to be manually wound should be done so every morning. Not only does this reduce the risk of shocks and subtle positional variations, but it helps to optimize the impeccable function of the watch’s movement. While self-winding watches typically have a power reserve ranging anywhere from 38 to 48 hours, it’s important to remember that if they’ve been put away or have otherwise stopped running, they can be wound manually with just a few gentle turns until they resume function.

Take Care of Leather
While the face of a watch is clearly its main component, it’s important to put care into maintaining its leather strap as well. Leather watch straps can prematurely age due to prolonged sunlight exposure or contact with water. You should also take your leather-strapped watch off every night to allow the leather to breathe and maintain its feel.

Consider Water Resistance
Rolex created the first waterproof wrist watch in 1926, but now, waterproofing is a common element found in many modern upscale watches. However, experts recommend getting any new or used Patek Philippe watches serviced by an authorized service center at least once a year to ensure that its waterproofing capabilities are still effective and protective. Don’t worry — these checks typically only take a few minutes.

Take Precautions
Finally, there are a few mistakes you want to avoid to ensure maximum longevity of your new or used Patek Philippe watches. It’s advised to never wear bracelets on the same wrist as your watch. It should also be adequately adjusted to your wrist to avoid premature wear. Its functions are typically not designed for use in water, so refrain from setting the time or working any other functions while the watch is underwater or still wet.

Ultimately, many of these tips can be applied to other upscale and quality watches, including Bertolucci watches, Daniel Roth watches, and new or used Breitling watches for sale. Knowing how to take care of your Patek Philippe watch is the key to maximizing its lifespan.
