3-4 days ago my bride and I collided, she had a loaded paint roller (Kilz) and ran it up my arm - and watch. I ran to the sink and washed it off, all's well I thought.

Alas! Yesterday I noticed the glass was fogged up and the stem not screwed in.
I removed the rear cover and sat it directly on a lighted low wattage bulb; 8-10 hours later I removed it and sat it aside.

I just remembered it and returned the cover. Then I adjusted the date and time. Will she keep running?

I think that she will Wrascal. ;)

It’s not like it was submerged in water, or had water really get into
the watch. Honestly just sounds like a bit of water maybe snuck in
when you were washing off. ..I’m going to think positive, and say
that should keep on running sir. :cool:

By the way, I love your willingness to tinker with taking that case-
back off. As well as trying that cool light bulb trick like that. (y)(y)

Very MacGyvery ! 🏆 ..Here’s hoping it keeps on purring along.

Thanks a ton for sharing this story with us !!!

Its horrible, just horrible!

I just retrieved her from her 3 day banishment to a watch winder. She's lost about 2 seconds in three days.

:LOL:;)

You had me worried all the way through the second ‘horrible’ sir. :ROFLMAO:
But it seems, or sounds like she’s working great ! ..And I’ll admit,
I was a little worried. However, I can see there was no need. (y)

Impressive, most impressive Wrascal ! ..Thx a bunch for the update !!!

This painted/ washed watch is the same one that was wearing my shark strap when the keeper came apart. Temporarily I was wearing it with another cheap (but purty brown) leather - up until a few min. ago; the shark has returned and is again patrolling.

Unfortunately shes now about 11-12 seconds slow - but still fog free.

It still seems like she is running alright sir, and the condensation has
been remedied, so that’s a big plus also. 🙂😉

Hopefully you are out of the woods with any serious issues Wrascal. (y)
