How to Clean a Watch Case

The clocks need to be subjected to a periodic cleaning to maintain their functionality and their beauty. Even more so if we own watches, especially French ones, dating back to the Imperial age whose characteristic is to be built and crafted by hand. A key feature that, even today, it gives more value to the clock is gilding “Mercury”; using this method it gets well preserved to this day. It is logical that over the years you may encounter dull areas, accumulations of weathering, but mostly insect droppings. With this guide we give advice on how to clean the Golden mercury case of a watch.

In this case, if we want to restore the original splendor of the period and at the same time enhancing the LED watch requires a thorough cleaning. The latter, in fact, enhances its value a bit like the so-called coins “uncirculated”. To begin work we dismantle the mechanical part that makes up the clock in its functions: time and chime. Then, immerse all parts in a plastic container containing of water, possibly distilled.

In fact, as is well known, the distilled water has the advantage that once dried makes no veneer of limestone. At this point, we must add about one liter of ammonia; it you can buy in supermarkets. We keep putting a pinch of ammonium chloride, what you use for sweets and buy at the pharmacy, we add some SOAP for hand washing rich in potassium, solid yellow and to finish we put a few drops of lemon juice. Complete, using gloves, mix everything together and then we distribute on all Golden parts using a soft sponge, leave it to soak for about half an hour.

After that time, we extract the crate from the bowl to wash it thoroughly with distilled water, especially in the most hidden parts, i.e. at the threads. After drying the surface completely dry with a soft cloth, while we use boxwood sawdust. To finish the job, do the so-called “rhodium,” in this way we will highlight its luster. Now we have to use a hair dryer or put it in an oven at a maximum temperature of 80°c, for about 5 minutes. It’s time to reassemble the mechanism of the clock and put it back in operation.

Advice
Never forget:

Avoid tuti gkli excesses in the use of components and especially in the final stage of drying.
