Use of Microfiber Watch Cloths

Use of Microfiber Cloths
  • Use sparingly and with great judgment when using on dry, satin surfaces (not highly polished) to clean light smudges, fingerprints, etc.
  • Never ever use on your watch’s highly polished surfaces without cleaning your watch first or spraying or foaming the microfiber cloth first.
  • Wash microfiber by hand or by machine without the use of softener or dryer sheets. They will clog the pores of the microfiber essentially making them ineffective at cleaning.  Line dry or dry by machine.

While it may be tempting after handling your watch to use a microfiber to wipe its surfaces, this should be avoided on highly polished surfaces, while judgment should be used for satin finishes.  Satin finishes are more forgiving to light impurities and a cloth can effectively remove impurities without harming your watch surfaces.  Sometimes the slightest particle on a highly polished surface can scratch if a microfiber cloth wipes it across its surface.  Our recommendation is to use microfiber only on highly polished surfaces after cleaning the watch to effectively remove all impurities.  For light maintenance, such as fingerprints and smudges, you can use with judgment microfiber on satin finishes.
