How to clean your men’s wooden watch ?
Make sure you keep your wooden watch clean. Any small cracks in the watch tend to collect dust and debris that can damage the watch over time (if not cleaned properly and regularly).
To clean the wooden case (and in many cases the strap), you can use a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice as a cleaning solution to apply to the watch, using a soft cotton cloth or an ordinary cotton swab.
If there is a particular engraving on the back of the watch, it is advisable to clean this area as well, as dirt may have settled there. After applying this mixture to all the wooden parts, you can wait a few minutes and remove the excess residue with a clean, dry cotton cloth.
If your wooden watch has a leather strap, use a clean, damp cloth for the leather strap and rub it gently. You can apply a small amount of neutral liquid soap to restore the colour and suppleness of the leather. Be sure to let it dry completely before putting the watch back on your wrist.
Care of wooden watches
1. Avoid direct contact with water or sunlight
Direct exposure to water can change the appearance of your wooden watch. In order to preserve the beauty of your wooden accessory, you should avoid wearing it at the beach, swimming pool or anywhere where there may be direct contact with water. If you submerge it completely in water, we recommend that you dry it immediately with a soft cotton cloth.
2. Avoid extreme temperatures and sunlight
This advice applies to both wooden and non-wooden models. Be sure to keep it away from extremely hot or cold temperatures: watches operate with great accuracy in a temperature range of 5° to 35°C. Prolonged exposure to very high temperatures and especially to direct sunlight can cause the wood of the watch to crack, become brittle, and even dry out.
Be sure to store it individually in its own bag, rather than in an ordinary jewellery box, in a dry (no humidity), dark and temperature controlled place. If you store your wooden wristwatch without any protective layer in a drawer, jewellery box or even in a suitcase (when travelling), the likelihood of scratching the case and band is high. The watch should not be stored on a shelf, but preferably in a box: if you do not have the original box, you can get a lined watch box with cushions inside.
Other tips for maintaining your wooden watch
1. Danger of cosmetics
Perfumes, creams, lotions, sunscreens, etc. can cause wood to lose its colour, so it is best to avoid excessive use of such cosmetics when wearing such watches.
2. Polishing them
To revive the shine of your watch, you can polish it with natural beeswax or, alternatively, with coconut, walnut or almond oil.
3. Wear it often
Many people tend to wear their wooden watch only on special occasions to reduce the risk of wear and tear. On the contrary, it is advisable to wear this accessory as often as possible to keep it beautiful: the natural oils in our body act as a lubricant for the wood, keeping it well hydrated.
