So far only few people have only tried it but it's a 5 min job that does magic. I sold a ZZF sub to a member here and after receiving it he replied he went to buy vaseline for all of his bracelets.

    I don't understand the oil bath thing at all some people leave them there for 2 days like the bracelet sucks in all the oil and you return in the morning to find an empty cup with just the bracelet inside. There's no difference in 20 sec soak or 24h soak. Same as oiling your bicycles chain you just tab some oil there give it couple of turns and thats it you'll not leave the chain in oil bath for 24 hrs like it makes it much better that way.

    Vaseline is water resistant as well it does not come off nor dos not dissolve in water so you can swim all you wan't it still feels the same.
    Soaking it for a long period of time isn't to get more oil in the bracelet but to have the oil remove the grime in between the links. That's why some people wash the bracelet with soap after to remove as much oil as possible to prevent more dirt to stick to the oily residue.
    I like watches the same way I like my women.

      I use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaning machine first. Take the watch head off bracelet (I also bought springbar pliers, works great to remove bracelet!), then drop bracelet into machine and clean. You'll be shocked at the amount of manufacturing gunk that comes out.

      Then I dry the now pristine bracelet with a hair dryer, then put it into a baggie and liberally squirt Rock N Roll Extreme dry bike chain lube to cover the bracelet. Let it work in well, leave it in baggie for awhile, then take out and wipe dry with clean cotton cloth. Finally reattach watch head. Your bracelet will look and fell better than new.

        "Use qtip and put it allover the bracelet, clasp, glidelock, safety clasp than move everything several times so it goes to all the areas and than clean it with paper and wash it under water and again paper.

        It will feel solid gen like and really smooth afterwards."

        Has anyone else here tried this? I may give this a go tomorrow.
        I don’t know if it’s frowned upon, but I always just used WD40 (which is basically mineral oil and Vaseline based combo). Did the same thing with the qtips. Took 5 mins, bracelets feel amazing.

          Didn’t ever think to use CLP. I use it on my 6.5 creedmoor precision rifle.

            Slather in Dawn dish soap FTMFW!
            Damp/ Soft tooth brush or the wife’s veggie brush is she aint lookin’!
            Rinse it. Dry it paper towel or microfiber.
            And spray silicone. Yep. Work it in there.
            Then a quick light soap rinse wash.
            Dry it.
            Then hit it with JNA sparkle spray.
            Rinse it again with water.
            Dry it.
            Wear it.

            It’ll be money after that.

              I don't think it is frowned upon as such and I have read a few people use WD40. From my perspective, there are 2 aspects to this, the benefits to the bracelet, and the harm to your skin. I may be wrong but I don't believe WD40 is too good for your skin and the residual odour isn't everyone's cup of tea.

              Has anyone used contact cleaner for the cleaning process? It will take a long time for a sonic cleaner to arrive in NZ so I'm considering using a contact cleaner to get rid of the grime and follow that up with the vaseline treatment.

                No matter what needs protecting or freeing up if a light oil is appropriate CLP/Break Free will be the go to product unless it's a long term storage situation in which case Lanolin spray and grease. Next best choice is LSA oil., forget all the fancy civvy oils.
