I went to take some shots of my Tissot the other night and when I got them on the computer I noticed just how grotty the watch was! It has been my daily wearer for years, I worked in retail for a while and wore it while moving great loads of stock and cleaning and so on, sweaty work mostly....wore it mowing the grass, working on cars and so on so I should have realised that a quick wipe over with a damp cloth just wasn't going to cut it. So I broke out the wifes jewellery cleaner and soaked it for 5 minutes then with the small "bonus" cleaning brush I got into all the tuff spots...in the end I think it came up well, could do with a polish to remove the swirls in the bezel I guess but for it's age and use I am pretty happy.
My question is..... HOW DO YOU CLEAN YOUR WATCH ??
Any tips for the "newbys" or for that matter those with many years of collecting under their belts?
Tips for cleaning/polishing
Here are some pics of my finished project, (wish I'd got some usable before shots...)
