Maintenance and Usage Tips

Welcome to Lorinaté's Maintenance and Usage Tips Page

Preserving the beauty and functionality of your vintage watch from Lorinaté requires careful maintenance and handling. These guidelines are designed to help you get the most out of your vintage timepiece.

General Usage

  • Handling: Treat your vintage watch with utmost care. Avoid impacts and rough handling that could damage the internal components or exterior finish.
  • Chemicals: Protect your watch from harsh chemicals, including perfumes, detergents, and lotions, which can harm the case and strap. Apply such substances well before wearing your watch.
  • Magnetic Fields: Keep your watch away from magnetic fields from speakers, refrigerators, or strong magnets, as these can affect the mechanism's accuracy.

Water Exposure

  • Water Resistance Caution: Even if your vintage watch is labeled as water-resistant, we advise against exposing it to any water. Age and wear may reduce the effectiveness of original water-resistant seals.
  • Avoid Humid Environments: Do not wear your watch while swimming, bathing, or in high humidity environments like saunas to avoid potential water damage.

Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Regular Cleaning: Use a soft, dry cloth to gently wipe your watch, removing dust, grime, and fingerprints. This simple routine helps preserve both its appearance and operation.
  • Professional Servicing: Schedule a professional service every 3-5 years with a qualified watchmaker. Regular servicing ensures mechanical precision and helps address issues before they lead to more serious damage.
  • Battery Replacement: To ensure consistent performance, our professional watchmaker recommends replacing the watch battery annually. This precaution helps to avoid battery leaks and ensures reliable timekeeping.


  • Proper Storage: Store your watch in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, which can fade the dial and degrade materials.
  • Prevent Scratches: If storing multiple watches, keep them separated to prevent scratches. A padded watch box or individual soft pouches are ideal for protection.

Winding Mechanical Watches

  • Manual Wind Watches: For manual wind watches, wind them once a day, ideally at the same time, to maintain accuracy.
  • Automatic Watches: If you do not wear your automatic watch daily, consider using a watch winder to keep it operational.

By adhering to these Maintenance and Usage Tips, you can help ensure that your vintage watch from Lorinaté maintains its beauty and functionality for years to come. For specific concerns or further assistance, please contact us at
