How soon should a damaged timepiece be repaired?

Damage to a case can cause dust, moisture or other foreign materials to enter your watch, which can damage the movement. Damage to the bracelet may lead to further damage due to dropping to the ground or even loss of the timepiece. If you note any damage to the watch, such as a broken crystal, broken crown, broken pin, dust or moisture in your watch, please have it repaired as soon as possible. If you cannot get the damage repaired immediately, do not wear your timepiece until the damage is repaired.
