To clean off patches and fingerprints that may appear on the surface of the case and crystal of your new watch, you should use a soft cloth.

After prolonged wearing, you may notice scratches on the surface. In this case, you can have the case and bracelet of your watch refinished and it will look as new again.

If your watch goes on a metal bracelet, it is also advisable to have the bracelet removed and cleaned from time to time as liquids, dust, and other environmental elements often penetrate in between the links of a metal bracelet.

As for leather straps, they often darken with time it is better not to make them wet. Some leather straps can be worn in the water.

If your watch goes on a rubber strap, it is most durable. You can clean and rinse it with a mild soap and water.

A mechanical watch should be serviced once in 3-4-year period, even if you have no problems with your watch. It is better to take your watch to an authorized retailer or service center of the watch manufacturer.

If your watch is water-resistant to at least 30 meters (the Tissot watch you mentioned is 100-meter water-resistant), you can wear your watch while washing your hands. Still, it is better to keep your watch away from long exposure to hot water.
