water in my watch, any advice on what i should do?

So I was washing my hand and water managed to sip through even though I was being careful, now there is mist inside and won't come out. What should I do? I tried placing it under the sun and blow drying it. Any other advices? Thanks in advance!

if you have a shoe rack for your dryer, i suggest placing it on it...and turning on the dryer...on low heat...for 45mins or so....and up the heat accordingly...otherwise visit a qualified watch technician to get the seals replaced.

depending on your watch it may be cheaper just to get a new watch than seeing a technician.

Agreed. I also suggest that you get it checked out ASAP as it may be too late already.

Water got inside my 16-year old Tag (probably because I didn't tighten the crown). I noticed this on a Sunday. On Wednesday, I brought it to Rodeo Jewelers in Oakridge and the watch repair guy helped me dry it out for free. Unfortunately it doesn't work reliably anymore because there's rust inside. He told me full repairs would cost $500+ and suggested that I look for a new watch.

I think he speaks Vietnamese though, so his English will be very difficult to understand.

doesnt always work as the water vapour is still stuck inside the watch...so when you move it away from the heat source, the water vapour condences back into water droplets.
