If you like watches like me, then you have a wide selection of them just like me. I use stainless steel watches for daily work wear, dual toned ones for evenings out, gold and jeweled ones for formal do’s and sports watches for when I’m feeling happy and casual. But I do care for all of my watches. They are serviced regularly, batteries are checked and replaced and of course, bracelets and straps are regularly polished and maintained. But irrespective of all that, watches do get damaged when you wear them out for occasions. The casings gets heated with the sun, affected by the salts in sweat, the oils in perfumes etc, etc. It’s not enough to just get them serviced and maintained regularly. One good way of ensuring that your watch collection is well maintained is by buying Selvyt polishing cloths.

The military uses the Selvyt cloth to make sure that all their metallic applications are smooth and well-maintained. The reasoning is that the smoother the finish, the better the equipment lasts without rusting and breakdown. The Selvyt Company has been around for more than 100 years and the cloths were originally used for polishing silver ware and jewelry. Selvyt cloths are now the number one choice for use in the polishing of expensive jewelry, antique and coated silver watches, and silversmiths and in the military. Industries which use the polishing cloth include optical industries, gun and metallic instruments in the military and watch makers.
There are several grades of the polishing cloth present and before you try to use the cloth on your delicate jeweled, gold or dual toned watches be careful of a few things like-
Silver polish cloths are used for polishing silver-coated casings or antique silver watches and silver jewelry and silverware. The cloths are impregnated with specific chemicals to remove the black tarnish on the surface of silverware while still preserving intricate details in the pieces. Gold polishing cloths are similarly manufactured but with different chemicals impregnated in the cloths. As you use the cloths to clean the watches, a superficial layer of dirt and grit is cleaned away. You can also remove scratches in the casing and glass face by using the multipurpose Selvyt cloths that the company offers.
