Cleaning your watch? any recommendations

Hey everyone,

how do you clean your watch from $100 -$100,000?

Soap and Water?

·

From my experience, and based on 50 years of collecting, I have found the best way to clean my watches is with my shirt.

·

Toothbrush and a little soap n water for the tough grime. 

Otherwise it’s a microfiber from the dozen or so locations I leave around everywhere for just such an occasion.

·

Alcohol wipes on bracelet, clasp and case but NEVER on the crystal or bezel. Don't want to mess up the AR outer coating if present. 
But I am a RN and have a gazillion alcohol wipes around me all day. 

Rinse under fresh, running water after being in or around salt water. 

·

Wipe them with a cloth every time you take it off, every 6 months remove the bracelet (if stainless steel) clean between the lugs

soak the bracelet for a few hours in lukewarm water with a bit of cleaning fluid, then a bit of a toothbrush clean and bingo, good as new.

Anyone use ultrasonic jewelry cleaners on their watch bracelets??
