  • Damp wrist syndrome

    Considering most watches are water resistant enough to wear in the bath or washing hair, how many people do? I ask as, for me, I don't tend to as I dislike the dampness under the watch afterwards. Yes, you can take it off afterwards to dry, but then doesn't that seem silly when you could just remove it beforehand and save the bother? It's the same with wedding rings; I don't tend to wear mine as I dislike having wet skin underneath it - well, that's my excuse anyway!

    It’s kind of like standing in the shower wearing a cap. I take my watch off to shower and sleep however I have worn a watch swimming and diving

      Never normally wear a watch on the shower unless my work watch is full of muck so may as well give it a clean.
      usually wear a watch in the pool - either the Panerai or my pooldweller,i mean seadweller! 😁

            I take mine off sleeping and bathing, but always wear one in the water at the pool, or beach. The damp towel after showering is pretty much my only method of cleaning them before I put them back on.

              Complicated answer to a relatively simple question!

              Simple statement is that I tend to wear my watches 24/7 - EXCEPT:

              Any watch with a depth rating of less than 10 ATM and/or any watch with a leather strap goes nowhere near water (apart from hand washing) but will be worn in bed.

              Any watch with a depth rating of 10 ATM or more with a metal bracelet will be worn showering and in bed. That includes stuff like the Daytona. Admittedly the Lange B-Uhr at 55m diameter takes up half the bed...........

                  Not in every respect.
