Watch fogging up, did I do something wrong?

advice-needed

#1

Hey all, I assembled my diy watch a few months ago. Looks great, runs great. But recently I’m seeing the crystal fogs up. Is this something to worried about?


#2

Does it fog up only when it goes from an air conditioned place to a hot place outside? That could be just condensation.


#3

If you want to be sure, you can take it to a watchmaker to test for water leak. It shouldn’t cost much. Some will even gladly test it for free.

I second @vanBaerle’s comment. get it checked to make sure its waterproof. worst feeling is not knowing if the watch works in water

Thanks all for your advice!

Quick update, I did take the watch to a watchmaker for a checkup. Turns out I didn’t tighten the case back enough so water is leaking in from that spot. Silly me! Now my watch is back to being waterproof!
