Product Care

1. Mechanism

Your mechanical watch will enjoy being wound up every day to keep its movement in motion.

- For a self-winding (automatic) watch, we recommend at least 20 turns of the crown.

2. Temperature
Avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures (less than 0°C or 32°F and more than 60°C or 140°F) and sudden changes of temperature.
3. Magnetic fields
Avoid leaving your watch near electromagnetic sources, as they may affect the operation of your timepiece.
4. Shocks and impacts
Avoid subjecting your watch to shocks, including sudden changes in temperature.

5. Harmful products
Prevent your watch from coming into any direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetic products etc., since they may damage the bracelet, the case or the gaskets.
6. Cleaning
We would advise you to clean your watch regularly (except for the leather strap) using a soft cloth and lukewarm soapy water. After immersion in salty water, rinse your watch in fresh water and leave it to dry completely.

7. Service

Like any precision instrument, a watch must be serviced regularly for optimum operation. As a general rule, we recommend that you have
your watch checked every 3 years by a qualified watchmaker. Do not open your watch by yourself.

Water resistance

- To protect the movement against moisture, make sure that the crown is pushed in fully against the case

- Your watch is only protected in daily life activities, bathing, accidental splashes, short swims or car washing – it is resistant to perspiration, water vapor, rain drops.

- The watch's water resistance properties cannot be guaranteed indefinitely. 

Leather Bracelet

For leather straps avoid the following: 

- Frequent contact with water

- Exposure to excessive humidity

- Prolonged exposure to sunlight

- Contact with cosmetics and oily materials

Accuracy

- The efficiency of the automatic winding system of a mechanical movement depends on the wrist movements of the person wearing the watch. Your watch has an average accuracy tolerance of around -10/+30 seconds per day.

Settings

1. Setting the time

- Pull the crown out to position II

- Turn the crown in either direction to place the hour and minute hands at the desired time.

- Push the crown home against the case.

2. Setting the date (if applicable)

Do not perform a rapid date correction between 22:00 and 02:00.

- Pull the crown out to position I

- Turn the crown clockwise (or counterclockwise depending on model) until the date shows in the aperture.

- Push the crown home against the case.
