How do magnetic fields affect our watches?

Recommended Posts

Place your watch near electronic devices that can generate magnetic fields may affect its performance. The effect on a quartz watch will be of short duration only, and limited to the time it remains within the magnetic field. However, mechanical watches  are more sensitive to magnetic fields. Watches are designed to withstand magnetic fields encountered in everyday life, but certain strong fields can magnetize steel components of the movement, particularly the balance spring. In certain rare cases, magnetized parts may stick together and cause the watch to run fast or even stop completely. In such cases, demagnetization must be carried out at a  authorized After-Sales Service Center.
