With the new Lepsi Watch Mag mobile invented in Geneva you now can easily measure if your watch is magnetized or not and then figure out if this is the reason why your watch runs fast or late.
How often have I been describing you the tremendous negative effects of magnetic fields for a mechanical watch. Omega is releasing more and more absolut anti-magnetic calibres to make its watches absolut resistant against the known and steadily growing sources of magnetic fields.
When a watch once is magnetized it will start to run either late or fast and if the watch is exposed to more and/or stronger magnetic fields it will simply stop to run/function.
Often people do not realize that this is the “simpel” problem why their (expensive and reliable) wristwatches run fast or late.
With the new Lepsi Watch Mag mobile App you now can measure yourself in only some seconds if your wristwatch is magnetized or not.
This is what you have to do:
Download the free Lepsi Watch Mag mobile App from the Apple App-Store and then activate it on your iPhone or iPad.
Go in the setup mode of the Lepsi Watch Mag mobile App, then place your iPhone/iPad on a table. Take a small magnet and move it around the screen without touching your iPhone/iPad. Observe the magnetic strength displayed by the App. The higher the “magnitude” digits get, the closer your magnet is to the iPhone´s sensor.
So, once you’ve found the sensor, double click on the identified area. Above you a screenshot of my iPhone 6S. The sensor’s position will be now be represented by a good visible circle.
After you have pinpointed the sensor on your iPhone/iPad, you now can measure your watch’s magnetism:
Click on the above shown “Start”-button and wait for three seconds. Now put your watch about one centimeter away from the sensor (the visible circle) without having it touch the screen.
If the message “No Magnetism” shows up, your watch is not magnetized.
If the message “Magnetism Detected” shows up your watch is magnetized.
In case your watch is magnetized you could demagnetize it by using a demagnetizer. You can buy a demagnetizer online or even at the website of Lepsi
You don’t want to do it by yourself? Every watch service center will also be able to demagnetize your watch …
Absolutely cool and free of charge!
Guys, please test your watches and tell me what you detected!
