We are surrounded by magnetic fields, the strength of which varies depending on our environment. Magnetism may disturb mechanical watches and affect their functioning by making the spring of the movement stick. You are therefore recommended to avoid magnetic fields on a permanent basis, or to neutralize them.
Magnetic fields are difficult to avoid because they are invisible. It is nevertheless important to know that they are mainly created by magnets, loudspeakers, smartphones, and magnetic clasps for handbags. In case your watch is magnetized, we recommend that you take it to a Lane’s boutique, where we could help to neutralize your wristwatch so as to restore it to its normal working condition.
