How to maintain Patek Philippe watches
Proper care and maintenance is essential to extend the life of luxury watches. Therefore, here are some tips to help you maintain Patek Philippe watches.
If you have a manual-winding or self-winding watch, it is best to repair it at an authorized Patek Philippe service center every five years. For watches that are manually wound, Patek Philippe recommends that you wind it at approximately the same time each day. This is to protect the movement. On the other hand, for a self-winding watch, if the watch stops operating, you can manually rotate the crown several times to restore speed.
When servicing leather watches, care must be taken that leather may age prematurely when exposed to water or excessive sunlight. Patek Philippe also recommends that you take off your watch at night to allow the leather to breathe.
For general care instructions, we recommend that you avoid wearing other accessories on the same wrist as the Patek Philippe watch to avoid scratches. You should also avoid exposure to extreme temperature fluctuations, magnetic fields, salt water and chlorinated pool water.
