Check the condition of your watch

Take the time to examine your watch carefully from all angles to spot any scratches, dirt or other imperfections that may require special attention when cleaning.

Cleaning your watch from the DB5 collection in detail:

  • Make sure that the crown of your watch is in the initial position to avoid any water infiltration.
  • Prepare two containers of clear, cold water.
  • In one of the containers, mix water with mild soap until you obtain a slightly soapy solution.
  • Lightly moisten your soft bristle brush with this mixture.
  • Gently scrub the case of your watch with the brush, making sure to cover all the nooks and crannies.
  • Rinse your brush in the other container of clean water.
  • Rinse the case of your watch thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue.

Finish cleaning with a microfibre cloth

Once you have finished cleaning, use a clean, dry microfibre cloth to gently dry the case of your watch. This will remove all traces of moisture and restore your watch to its original shine.
