Greg Chalk Wrote:The shock of playing golf tennis squash transmitted into a watch movement can do damage to all mechanical watches whether auto or HW. Better to take the watch off and put it with your wallet and keys in say the racket cover under the tin and the front wall. Why risk damage to an expensive watch. Roger Federer takes his Rolex day date off and puts it in his bag. Dare I suggest that he is a) not short of CHF US$ or GB£ and he can afford to buy them by the dozen and b) his ability to hit a clean shot that does not jar through the racket into his wrist and the watch is far greater than your efforts dare I suggest. Also a hard shock to a mechanical watch whether auto or HW can cause the balance spring to get snagged and the watch then gallops at a fast rate until the balance spring is released whether by a service or another shock. Also why do you want to give your nice watch a bath in your sweat? Would you rally a road going car over dirt roads such as a Merc or BMW let alone an Italian thoroughbred? Please reconsider where your good watches are when playing the likes of tennis or squash.
