    Would X-ray damage my THC45 ?

    I am traveling tomorrow and might be asked to put my watch through x ray ...

    Thanks

    I was traveling by plane last week with my TH CM45, and it passed through X-ray three times with no problem at all... just remember to put it in Flight Mode when you are on the plane ;)

    It shouldn't damage it, it's basically the same technology as a phone or ipad, and they get xrayed all the time

    Out of interest, and seeing as though this thread is created, what are the damages of an automatic watch going through an xray machine. I had to go through a machine a few days back, I took my watch off and just put it on top of the machine before I walked through.

    I wouldn’t imagine that it will do any damage, if it considered safe for the human body your watch should be ok? I have been advised to keep them away from electric hot air hand dryers though, lots of static electricity and
    magnetism.

    Interesting, thanks for that. I was just warned by my AD to not go through any xray machines at the airports, something about the magnetism?
