What's the best way to clean your Pam? Are they completely safe in water such as showering and swimming?

Remove strap/lug wires, lightly tighten screws (keep crud out of threads)
Tape plexi w/ painters tape
light polish of stainless surfaces with Cape Cod polishing cloth, buff off.
light poslish stainless surfaces with nevr-dull, buff off
wipe off piece with soft tissue
remove painters tape on plexi
light buffing of plexi with poly-watch, buff off.
Reassemble watch, rinse under cool water assuming strap is waterproof, dry and finish wipe with microfiber cloth.

I do this once a year at best.

I use a special jewelry cleaner though safe for all metals then toothbrush then rinse with warm water - I only will use cape cod cloth/scratch brush as needed if I see a scratch/mark. I need to get good with polywatch though as the 372 plexi is probe to hairlines like crazy...
