So disgusting. And I fear you can't even toss it into the ultrasonic cleaner first of all, shall be necessary to take the bracelet off. I would really charge the triple to that lady. LOL! And please avoid repeating to quote the pictures all, ok?

I hadnít heard about the steam being a problem for the seals before (only in a dishwasher where heat raises the pressure in a confined space).

I use a bar of soap so only have to worry about the shampoo on the seals.

Also wash the watch last thing of all just before getting out to avoid picking up bits of dead skin etc.

Likely if you wear it the same thing will happen; don't worry about it. As Bas has pointed out, the main issue is UV attack of the crystal seal.
