How to clean your luxury watch

You’ve got a luxury watch – it’s your pride and joy. But how do you keep it clean? Sweat, dust, grime, and daily life can all wreak havoc on your Daytona. If you wear it daily, it can start to look old before its time.

We recommend our Luxe Watches Cleaning Kit, which contains everything you need to keep your beloved Rolex or Patek in top-notch condition which is what you will want, should you come to sell it at a later date.

Here’s how to get your watch sparking for summer with our essential cleaning kit.

What’s in the kit?

Our essential cleaning kit is available from our beautiful Epping boutique. For those who live further afield, you can also purchase it from our Instagram page and eBay.

Here’s what’s included in the kit:

  • Microfibre cleaning cloth
  • Specialised watch cleaning solution
  • Cleaning brush
  • Watch polishing cloth
  • Leather ‘restore and revive’ cleaner

Cleaning your luxury watch

Even though most luxury watches are made from robust materials like stainless steel and gold, they can still get scuffed and dull over time. Regular cleaning will protect the metal and keep it looking brand new.

Microfibre cleaning cloth

Start with the dry Luxe Watches microfibre cleaning cloth to remove any dust or dirt from the bracelet. This cloth creates a static charge that attracts dirt to it until washed. If any residue remains, wet the cloth to remove the last bits of dirt.

Specialised watch cleaning solution

Pour the specialised cleaning solution into a small bowl, ensuring there’s enough to fully submerge your watch. Leave your watch in the solution for 15 minutes to thoroughly cleanse it.

Cleaning brush

Use the cleaning brush to tackle dirt in awkward places, such as between the links in the bracelet or around the crown.

Watch polishing cloth

For a final buff, use the watch polishing cloth to give your watch a super sheen, leaving it sparkling.

Leather ‘restore & revive’ cleaner

Leather can quickly start to look old due to sweat, dead skin cells, dust, dirt, or body oil. While a leather watch strap may eventually need replacing, regular cleaning can extend its lifespan. Our kit includes a natural and organic leather restoring and reviving balm. This enhances the look and feel of the leather and adds a waterproof coating. A small touch on your microfibre cloth will bring the leather back to life.

Buy our cleaning kit

Our cleaning kit is available for £38.95 and can be collected from our boutique. You can also order it from eBay or our Instagram page.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to store your luxury timepiece in a covered case or somewhere dust-free to prevent it from settling into the band’s crevices.
