How does magnetism affect my watch?

Magnetic objects such as electronic devices, household appliances and magnetic fasteners can affect the functioning of your watch. The effect of the magnetic field can cause your watch to run fast or slow. In the event that your watch has been in contact with such a magnetic field, we recommend having your watch demagnetised. Please contact our experts for this. The impact of the magnetic field varies by type of watch:

Our Italian collection consists exclusively of quartz watches, which means the watches are powered by a battery. The impact of a magnetic field is very strong in this type of watch.

This is primarily because the mechanism already uses a magnetic force to generate drive. Given that the components in a watch are very small, they can easily be affected by an object that contains a greater source of magnetism. This can cause your watch to run fast or slow, or interrupt its functioning. Magnetism that remains in the mechanism itself does not affect the accuracy of the time reading. If the watch has been exposed to very strong magnetism, we recommend having your watch demagnetised.

Our Swiss collection consists of mechanical, automated watches. These watches are sensitive to magnetism to the same extent. The difference is that when affected by magnetism, these watches remain magnetised after they come back out of the magnetic field. The time indicated by the mechanism may then have lost its accuracy. We recommend having the watch demagnetised.
