CLASSIC DESIGN MEETS MODERN ACCURACY
With painstaking attention to detail, we are very proud to introduce the True North Watch Co. Vintage Rally Timer chronograph. A classic timepiece inspired by the iconic valjoux chronos of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.
With the “Patina” project our goal was to add 30 years of age to your VRT. In order to create this tropical rust, we developed an oxidized patina method that allowed us to control the aging, resulting in the perfect recreation of a time earned patinated dial.
The warm yellow lume mixed with our exclusive “Tropical Rust” finish creates the feel of a watch that honors the aesthetics of time passing.
The VRT is powered by a rugged meca-quartz mechanism, resulting with a watch that combines the accuracy of quartz with the crisp feel and performance of a mechanical chronograph.
DON’T Wear Your Watch In The Shower! (Even Your Diver)
So your watch is water resistant or waterproof, and you wonder: can I wear my watch in the shower? There is actually a lot of elements that will prevent you from showering with your favorite piece on.
Don’t wear your watch in the shower. They are not designed to withstand warm water. When your watches cools down after the shower, moist air gets sucked into the case. Doing this repeatedly will deteriorate the movement, even if your watch is water resistant or if it’s a dive watch with a depth rating of 100 m or more.
Why wearing a watch in the shower is a bad idea
Now, you might think: come on, I’m not 100 m deep in water when I shower!
That’s true, but here is the thing: the water freefalls onto your watch. The speed the water gains from falling adds up a lot more pressure than if you were to gently submerge your watch 2 inch (or 5 cm) deep in water.
So the pressure might not be the same as if you were deep diving, but it doesn’t detract from the fact that – yes – a shower puts the water resistance of your watch to the test. Not a crazy amount of pressure, but still.
Hot water can cause gaskets lose their ability to contract and expand, crowns and pusher have a harder time screwing in or popping back into place, crystal crack. It’s just the way it is: your watch is a living object, and it ages – just like us.
As a result, over time, your watch may lose some of its water resistance rating. Wearing it the shower will reduce the amount of time between servicings even more, so that you will have to send it for servicing more often if you want it to perform at factory specifications.
