Bought my first Patek!

Recommended Posts

Today is a new watch day for me.

Went down to the shop where they had a sealed piece.

After handing over the cash, it's bye bye seal...

And it's out

Wanted the shop to size the bracelet, but he suggested to go to Patek service centre instead. So off I went.

A hammer was required to size the bracelet!

Thanks guys!

Now I have a very serious problem:

how in the world am I supposed to keep it clean?

For my Rolexes, I simply wash it with some mild detergent and run it under a tap.

But this piece only has a 60m rating. I've read that soap is not good for the seals, and I/m sure polishing it with a microfibre cloth often does not bode well for the shiny bits.

Any advice?

Huge congrats, my all time fav naut, about cleaning it come on, if the water is at a small flow nothing will happen, of course if you use your shower on "massage" mode to do it might be risky but if not, I wash mine every 5 days +/- and it's fine, 60m is absolutely ok, no problem… Oh and don't try to polish it with any kind of cloth, mine after 1 year of almost 24/7 wrist time looks almost like new, you'll be fine...
