One of the latest elegant timepiece brands to hit the market is Maurice Lacroix watches. Whilst they are new, the quality of these timepieces is certainly superior. This company has made breakthroughs in developing watches that are innovative.

The company is based in Switzerland and they added retrograde displays, chronographs and moon phase indicators to their watches. The pride and passion of watch making in these watches is obvious and the question is how to take care of these valuable timepieces?

These watches do not come custom made and therefore it may necessary to adjust the watch bracelet to fit your wrist. The spring-loaded pin in the bracelet is what you would work with in order to adjust the bracelet to suit your wrist. Work on a cloth when working with the spring as it is tiny and you could drop it and not be able to find it. You will find the hole to insert the pin that will make the strap fit you best. Some watches have screws to which the links are attached; in this instance, you will require a screwdriver that fits these screws to be able to adjust the watch bracelet.

Leather straps can often be too big for the wrist. Making an extra hole or two is the way to solve this problem. Unless you have a leather punch rather not attempt to make the holes yourself, take it a shop that has the correct tools for the job.

Manual wind watches should be wound up at the same time each day. By winding your watch up in the first part of the day the watch will have maximum power that will last all day and result in better keeping of time.

Do not attempt to wind up the watch whilst it is still on your wrist, rather take it off and then wind it up. By not taking off the watch, you put strain on the strap and the winding system of the watch.

Wind the watch slowly and at a consist ant speed that is slow until you feel the tightening. By over winding the watch you could break or damage the mainspring and some other components.

Cheaper automatic watches can stop, as they do not have a winding system to start the watch again. If this is the case then gently swing the watch in an arc formation for a brief period. The manual wind watches can made to work again by turning the winder slowly for a number of minutes.

The watches can be water resistance and how resistant is indicated either on the watch itself or the packaging of the watch. You will see something like: WR30, this indicates it is water resistant to a depth of 30M. If it says WR200M then it is resistant to a depth of 200M. The depth is not as important so the type of water that the watch is exposed to. Hot, soapy, chlorinated or water with detergents in is bad for the seals of the watch. Clean your watch with clean cool water after exposing your watch to any kind of water.

Watch out for magnets near your watch as they can cause the watch to malfunction. Computers and the magnetic seal on the freezer door can cause this. A watchmaker will have the equipment needed to sort this issue out promptly.

All Maurice Lacroix watches regardless of whether are inexpensive or costly should be maintained properly. Both quarts and mechanical watches should be maintained and looked after so that they enjoy a long life span. The Maurice Lacroix ladies watches are built to last and are durable, particularly if you look after them.
