Watch Care

Special Care Instructions for your Timepiece

  • Water resistance is not permanent. In the course of time, the gasket of the case and/or crown may wear out.
  • Never expose your watch to water in extreme heat -hot showers, saunas, hot tubs - as it may cause serious damage on the watch.
  • Do not press the buttons or turn the rotating bezels of your water resistant watch while under water.
  • Never expose watch in extreme temperature change.
  • For watches with screw down crowns, make sure that it is tightly screwed into the watch case before taking your watch to the water.
  • After exposure to salt water and contact with sand or mud, rinse your watch in a stream of fresh water to avoid particle build-up and metal corrosion. Dry with a soft cloth.
  • For water resistant watches with leather straps, note that leather is easily damaged by water. Make sure to dry your strap with a soft cloth to improve the life of your strap.
  • Water resistance can be impaired by accidental impacts to the watch.
  • It is very important to read your watch's manual first above all else to know its features and resistance.
  • Water damage to a watch is never covered by any warranty.
  • If the case, crystal, buttons, screws or seals on a water resistant watch is damaged, the watch can no longer be regarded as water resistant
  • Avoid exposing your watch to strong chemicals, perfumes, soaps or solvents as they might cause discoloration, deterioration or damage to the strap, rubber seals and lubricants essential to the life of the watch.
  • Do not attempt to repair your watch by yourself.
  • While every effort is made to ensure that your timepiece is designed to withstand impact - under normal use - avoid severe impacts or drops onto hard surfaces.
  • Do not manually change the date when the watch is set between 8 PM to 4 AM. Doing so may cause damage to the quick set system of the date module.
