    Maintaining a Frogman

    I'm not sure that the title for this thread is exactly what I mean. I find no recommendations for cleaning/maintaining my new GW-200TC in the manual that accompanied it. I don't expect to have to do much maintenance, but I do wonder about how to clean grit and other stuff from the watch.

    Also, is it OK to operate the buttons on the Frogman while the watch is wet or under water?

    I suspect that the answers to these questions are somewhere in a thread, but I haven't found the correct combination. So . . . I would appreciate any advice.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Daily rinse off with fresh water will keep it clean

    Maybe dailly is a bit overdone, but the manually indeed states to rinse your Frogman everytime it has been in contact with salt water (a lot of swimming pools nowadays use a special salt in stead of Chloride!). I believe the manual says to put it under fresh water for overnight.

    Cheers,

    My bad. I downloaded the manual because it was easier to read. I just overlooked the reference section. I see the answer to my questions. Thanks to all. Now, if I can only figure out how to change my HOME setting to another city, I'm good to go. Sigh.

    A daily rinse under some tap water should help clean the superficial dust collected during the day. Every 6 months or so, I usually remove the outer bezel very carefully. There is a lot of accumulated dirt/grime that builds up under the bezel. Once again, I just use running tap water and sometimes an old toothbrush to remove all of the dirt paticles.

    I have also invested in a spare Frogman bezel and strap if and when the old ones break apart.

    Another suggestion is to used canned compressed air (what you use to blow dust out of a computer keyboard) to aid in drying the watch.

    Hi Sky -

    That's exactly what I do. Every night it joins me for a daily wash. Works wonders
