Like any high-precision instrument, a watch needs regular servicing to ensure that it functions perfectly. We cannot indicate the frequency of such work, since it depends entirely on the model, the climate and the owner’s individual care of the watch.
It is important to regularly service your watch. As a general rule, a watch should be serviced every 4 to 5 years, depending on the conditions in which it is used.
In order to preserve watch characteristics in the long-term, we recommend users to:
We invite you to read with greatcare the user guide and follow the maintenance instructions of your watch.
Have watch water-resistance checked by an authorised watchmaker once a year or each time the watch is opened.
MANUAL WINDING WATCHES
Wind the watch once a day, preferably in the morning.
Ensure the watch bracelet is suitable for the anticipated use and that it is correctly adjusted to wrist size at the time of purchase.
Avoid contact with water and dampness to prevent discoloration and deformation.
Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight to prevent the color from fading.
The eather is permeable! Therefore avoid contact with greasy substances and cosmetic products. It is not advisable to clean your strap with leather cleaners.
Avoid all watch impacts and shocks (have water-resistance checked after a severe shock). Avoid wearing the watch during activities that may generate strong and repeated vibrations. Avoid wearing a jewel on the same wrist as the watch.
Avoid exposing mechanical watches to magnetic fields (electronic units) as this may disturb watch settings.
Screw down the crown carefully to prevent water from penetrating the mechanism.
NON SCREW-DOWN CROWN
Push it back into the neutral position to prevent water from penetrating the mechanism.
SUBMERSION IN SEA WATER OR POOL
Rinse always your watch with warm water afterwards. Not use control functions, pushers or the time setting crown under water or out of water if the watch is not dry.
For metal bracelets and water-resistant cases, use a toothbrush with soapy water and a soft cloth for drying.
Avoid extreme tem peratures above 60°C or 140°F below 0°C or 32°F or extreme temperature changes.
Avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetic products etc., since they may damage the bracelet, the case or the gaskets.
