Knowing the effects of magnetism, you have probably wondered how safe magnetic watch boxes are for your timepieces.
Now, inadvertently, we live surrounded by magnetism in our daily lives. Even if we want to, we cannot escape its influence, as this can occur - naturally or artificially - in objects that contain magnets or ferromagnetic materials.
Unfortunately, our precious watches are no exception. The magnetism present in objects as common as toys, credit card memories, refrigerators, computers, mobile phones or electric guitars can affect its accuracy. These remain magnetically charged even after moving them away from the magnetic source.
Magnetic resistance performance
|Type||Magnetism resistance (in case of direct current magnetic field)||Explanation|
|Common timepiece||Up to 1,600 A/m (approx. 20 gauss)||The minimum magnetism resistance requirement for a watch. (For reference)|
|Type 1 antimagnetic watch (magnetic resistant watch)||Up to 4,800 A/m (approx. 60 gauss)||A magnetic resistant watch almost always maintains its performance when placed at 5 cm from magnetic field generating devices of everyday life.|
|Type 2 antimagnetic watch (super magnetic resistant watch)||Up to 16,000 A/m (approx. 200 gauss)||A super magnetic resistant watch almost always maintains its performance when placed at 1 cm from magnetic field generating devices of everyday life.|
|Diver's watch||Up to 4,800 A/m (approx. 60 gauss)||The magnetism resistance requirement for a diver's watch.|
Case Elegance watch boxes have been tested with a magnetic field tester, and within 1cm of the embedded magnets inside the lid, the interior magnet generates approximately 6 gauss, well below the range of what any modern-day watch can withstand.
