How to take care of your watch

Setting date and time

* The mechanism that drives the automatic date change in mechanical watches is complex and usually needs about 4 hours to be complete. Setting the date of the watch manually while the automatic date change mechanism is already running can damage the clock mechanism, this is why it is recommended to place clockwise between 3 and 9.

Watertightness

The crown should be in its default position (close to the watch case) unless setting time or date.

In those watches that have a screw-down crown, the crown must be always screwed unless you are resetting the watch functions. The same should be done with chronograph pushers if these are also threaded and you are not using the stopwatch.

You should NEVER use chrono pushers underwater.

It is advisable to rinse the watch in fresh water after use at sea.

In submersible watches it is advisable to perform periodic reviews to ensure a seal.
You should avoid sudden temperature changes such as those produced in a shower, because they can cause condensation inside the watch.

// Sealing Table
Designation Description Use in ideal conditions, according to the manufacturer Practical use
Water resistant 5m-10m. Least waterproof watches. Stand splashing water. Better not to wet.
Water resistant 30m. Waterproof watches. These watches withstand intensive discharge of water, shower, and swimming on the surface. Support discharges of water and swimming on the surface for a limited time.
Water resistant 50m. Waterproof watches. These watches withstand intensive discharge of water, shower, and swimming on the surface. Support intense of water and swimming on the surface.
Water resistant 100m-150m. Submersible watches. Withstand the above in greater intensity, besides diving sessions. Freediving support "lung".
Water resistant 200m. Submersible professional diving watches. Withstand the above in greater intensity and in adverse temperatures, in addition to professional diving sessions. Support diving sessions of limited duration up to 40m.
Water resistant or "Diver's watch" 300m. Submersible professional diving watches. Withstand the above in greater intensity and in adverse temperatures, plus long sessions of professional diving. Support professional diving.
Water resistant or "Diver's watch" 1220m. Submersible professional watches for extreme diving. They support all kinds of diving sessions, and Helium decompression. The same use (if you hold the carrier). Support decompression.
Magnetism

The magnetic fields of electronic devices can affect the performance of a watch and especially to mechanical watches.

Mechanical, automatic

In the case of watches with automatic winding movements, after setting the time and date you should wind the watch by turning the crown 15 laps before placing it on your wrist. This way the movement receives the energy needed to move forward and continue loading until reaching its maximum load.

Mechanical, manual winding

It is convenient to wind the watch once a day, and always gently and until the spring barrel has tighten and the crown is lock. At that point you should not force the crown as this may damage the mechanism.

Chemical products

Some everyday products such as solvents, detergents, and cosmetics can damage joints and bracelets, therefore it is recommended to avoid them.

Vibrations

We recommend not using the watch in sports activities in order to avoid vibrations and shocks that could damage the movement.
