: This guy has found a way to "de-fog" his watch (if it gets water in
: it). He "puts the watch in a small plastic bag (sandwich bag) with
: the crown open (I assume). The bag is not tied, but left loosly open
: (loosely wrapped around the watch)... this whole mess is stuck into a jar
: with some Uncle Ben's rice... The dry rice draws the moisture out" of
: the watch.

: I know it won't keep the watch from leaking, but at least I saved a couple of
: $$. Take care, "a dude" (dont know his name)

: whole reason why the watch leaked in the first place, but what do you want
: for nutin?

: ideas you can do at home to defog a watch, then let me know!)

: Dog me if you want, but hey, I'm just passin info on to Omega owners! Let me
: know if this whole deal REALLY works! Gene
