    Water Moisture in the Watch

    Hi,

    I took my Casio 200m watch to go diving and now the glass has a thin layer of mist. I guessed when I had my battery replaced the last time, it was not sealed properly.

    Question - Is there something I can do to get rid of the moisture? Many thanks.

    Opening the back of the watch and gently waving a hairdryer at it should clear the moisture.

    Then reclose the back, applying some silicon grease to the seals. Make sure the gasket is correctly aligned.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Hi Cruiser,

    It doesn't have to be a bad seal on your watch/ If your watch was closed on a humid and warm day, there is reletive much water in your watch. If the crystal suddenly cools down (going outside in the freezing cold, or diving in relative cold water) you get condence on the crystal.

    The methode Tribe described is probably the best,

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Usually if the circumstances Sjors describes happened then warming the crystal will get rid of the mist. My guess is that the gaskets are too old for SCUBA diving (may survive a swimming pool), the gasket lube is gone, dirt trapped between the back gasket and the case or the gasket and the back, or the back isn't on tight enough. How old is the watch and what have you exposed it to that would kill rubber? Things like brake fluid, gasoline, rubbing alcohol, sweat, heat, OFF! bug repellent, sulfuric acid, ect.
    SPROING!!!!

    (oops! Time for a new watch!)
