Do you wash or clean your watches between wears?

As the topic header says, do you? I have mainly Casio G-Shocks so it鈥檚 quite easy for me to clean these. My cleaning method is pretty simple - lukewarm water and a mild soap and I just use my fingers to rub over the bezel and the band. And then of course, a tap water rinse. My reason for doing so is to clear the dead skin cells and sweat marks. One oft spends good money on watches, so my feeling is to keep 鈥榚m looking good. I suppose with less water resistant watches and those on leather or material bands, this sort of cleaning would be impossible. Do you have other methods of watch cleaning?

Despite warnings not to, I just shower with my Orient Mako II and my Citizen Skyhawk.

For less robust watches, I just wet a towel and wipe... when I remember to.

Thanks for your comment.

I think it鈥檚 a good idea to give them a cleanse. Even if just now and then.

Any non-dress watch that can鈥檛 handle a shower isn鈥檛 worth my money.

I'm retired not doing hard heavy and sweaty work. So I just wipe down my watch before it goes into the box before bed.

Good night

Cheers!

If it's on a bracelet, I wash it under the tap when I wash my hands. Not every time, but often enough. This includes the 30m water resistant Grand Seiko. Makes the watch shine.
