Tissot Watch Care
To keep your Jared Tissot watch in top condition, clean it regularly using a soft cloth and warm water. For metal brackets and for all water-resistant cases, use a toothbrush with soapy water and a soft cloth for drying. Do not expose your watch to intense magnetic fields such as loudspeakers or refrigerators and other electromagnetic appliances. Avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes and cosmetic products since these items can damage the bracelet, case, or gaskets on the watch.
Tissot watches can come in self-winding and manual-winding movement modes. The difference is the way you wind the watches. Manual-winding watches must be wound each day and self-winding watches have an internal rotor activated by wrist movements. 10 to 12 hours of wearing a Tissot watch should keep the watch going for 24 hours a day.
The battery life in a Tissot watch varies. On average, a battery will last two to five years. The Tissot watch does have a power reserve warning indicator to let you know when the watch battery is running low. If you see the second hand jumping every four seconds, you know it is time to replace the battery.
