Hi!

I have a Pam 28 and would like to seek advices on how to clean / maintain a pvd watch. I tend to treat my watch delicately when using a soft cloth to wipe away water marks and fingerprints which become quite evident on the matte finished pvd watch. Is it advisable to wash the watch with water? Or is just using a cloth used for CDs to wipe clean the watch is better?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

Renaissance Wax on it. The wax will help protect the finish and also reduces the fingerprints and other discolorations on the surface.

Very good stuff.

Is that wax applicable to a pencil grey PVD?

I hope all is well with U and the Fam

Also works well on uncoated stainless.

Might even work on a Helson Bronzo ( I had to add that because it's been 4 hours since Helson was mentioned on the forum )

The Renaissance wax was originally developed to protect and preserve items in museum collections. It works on a variety of materials, not just metal.

Since this post is starting to sound like a shill, I have to disclose that I get $15 for every $5 can of wax they sell. I don't know how they do that, they must make it up on the volume

But seriously, it's good stuff, and you know I'm a serious man.
