Supplies needed to clean an Omega watch:

To clean your metal or waterproof Omega watch:
- Wipe down the watch with a dry clean cloth. This is just to ensure that the watch is free of any obvious dust or debris. It can also remove smudges on the watch face.
- Use the toothpick to gently clean out any dirt or grime in the bracelet of the Omega watch. The bracelet is the biggest trap for dust and dirt on an Omega watch, so the toothpick is the best way to scrape it out. Just be careful not to dig too aggressively, or you risk scratching the metal.
- Dip a soft toothbrush into warm soapy water and gently wipe down the watch. Be careful not to get it near the gears of the watch. Clean it gently and make sure that while the toothbrush is wet, it is not soaking wet. If there is too much water on it, you risk some leaking into the gears.
- Lay the Omega watch on a clean washcloth to dry. Gently pat the excess water off of the watch. Do not wear it or put it away until the watch is completely dry.
- When in doubt, take it to a professional. Jewelers have more products and tools to clean an Omega watch. If your watch is very dirty or is made out of leather or some other type of material, it is is better to get it cleaned by a professional than attempt it yourself. With an item so precious, it is better to be safe than sorry.
