Owning a luxury watch is one of the best investments you can
make when it comes to your style.
They say a watch is one of the most important pieces of jewelry
that a man can wear, and donning the right piece makes a huge impact on your
individual character and style. The right luxury watch evokes elegance and
commands attention to the wearer, makes for a great conversation starter, and is
a window to the wearer’s personality and taste.
The TAG Heuer Autavia collection takes inspiration from the original Autavia models of the mid-1900s.
A bronze watch exudes elegance, but says that a person likes
adventures. It makes for a great storyteller since its ever-changing patina naturally
develops on the bronze over time, based on the wearer’s habits. A dress watch
with a leather strap heralds to the classic gentleman, who likes simplicity and
sleek sophistication. Some men however, like to make an entrance with a sporty
stainless steel, which can take him anywhere because of its versatility and
Bronze is not only elegant and characteristically timeless, it is also rugged and ready for a lifestyle that includes the great outdoors.
But not only does a fine watch make a bold fashion statement;
it also increases value over time. And a great timepiece like the newly
released TAG Heuer Autavia can last you a lifetime—if properly taken care of
Here are some things you can have to keep in mind when caring
for your luxury watch.

Wipe it every after use
Keep dust and dirt from building up by wiping it down with a soft piece of cloth every after use. For water-resistant watches like the TAG Heuer Autavia in stainless steel straps, you can even clean it with a mixture of water and mild soap, using a cleaning brush with soft bristles to get to the nooks and crannies. When cleaning with water, make sure that the crown is in its proper position so the water won’t seep inside.

Keep it in its box
The box that your watch came in is beautiful for a reason: use it for storage. When you’re not using the watch, keep it upright in its box, instead of lying flat and vulnerable on your bedside table. One quick sweep of your hand in the mornings and you’ll wish you never tried to reach for the snooze button.
An automatic watch like the TAG Heuer Autavia is preferred by many since you don’t have to mechanically wind it. Wearing it alone winds it for you. But what if you’re not wearing your watch as often? That’s when you have to start thinking about investing in a quality watch winder, which will keep your movement wound when it’s in storage.
Speaking of storage, avoid placing your watch near any kind of magnet. A magnetic field may permanently affect your watch’s inner timekeeping, which may cause it slow down or even stop.

Keep your watch serviced
As a general rule, a watch must undergo routine maintenance service every 2 years to keep it in tip top shape, whether you’re using it or not. This is important so your service professional can check your watch for parts that need replacing. It is a machine, after all, that’s why it needs care and attention. If you have the TAG Heuer Autavia, you can send it to the TAG Heuer Service Center (Watchworks) at Araneta Center, Cubao to have it checked and serviced.
