Dealing with Watch Magnetization: An Easy Fix

Mechanical watches, which can consist of hundreds of intricate parts, are susceptible to magnetization when exposed to magnetic fields. The good news is that this issue can be easily and affordably fixed with a demagnetizer. These devices are inexpensive and can demagnetize your watch in just a few seconds.

Why Magnetism Affects Watches

  • Vulnerable Components: The most commonly affected component is the hairspring, even those made from Nivarox alloys, which are designed to be resistant to magnetic fields. Despite this resistance, the iron and nickel in the alloy can still become magnetized.
  • Effects on the Watch: When magnetized, the coils of the hairspring stick together, effectively shortening the spring and causing the watch to gain time. In severe cases, the movement can stop entirely.

Detecting Magnetization

  • Compass Test: Place your watch near a compass. If the needle moves, your watch is magnetized. This is a 100% reliable method to diagnose the issue.

Using a Demagnetizer

  1. Simple Process: Pass the watch back and forth over the demagnetizer to remove the magnetic field and restore normal operation.
  2. Included Guide: Each device comes with straightforward instructions for use.

Product Details

  • Cost-Effective: Demagnetizers are typically priced around €40 / £35 / US$49.
  • Dual Voltage: This demagnetizer is dual 220/110V, making it usable worldwide. It comes with standard North American plugs. For use in other countries, simply use a readily available travel adapter. A version with a standard European plug is also available on our website.

Common Magnetic Sources

Magnetic fields are ubiquitous in everyday life. Some common sources include:

  • Airport scanners
  • MRI machines
  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Handbags with magnetic clasps
  • Speakers and TVs
  • Security system door contacts

Real-World Example

One customer experienced magnetization with every mechanical watch he wore due to frequent exposure to a magnetic device at work. Identifying and eliminating the magnetic source resolved the issue.


Magnetism can be a major headache for hand-wound and automatic watches, but fortunately, no damage is usually done. The watch can be easily demagnetized using a demagnetizer, returning it to perfect working condition. If you suspect your watch is magnetized, use a compass to confirm, and then follow the simple demagnetization process.

Keep your mechanical watch running accurately and efficiently by addressing magnetization issues promptly with a demagnetizer. This simple tool offers a quick and reliable fix to a common problem, ensuring your watch remains in top condition.
