Taking care of your watch
1. Protect it from shocks, magnetic fields, strong heat, water also chemicals.
2. Set date functions only between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.
3. Always close the crown tightly
4. Do not open the housing and base yourself
5. Protect from strong sunlight if not carried
6. Have service carried out regularly (every 4-6 years)
7. Wind up mechanical watches at least 1x per month if not worn for a longer period of time
Below is a detailed description of the 7 tips:
1. To guarantee a long life for your watch, we advise you to protect it from shocks, magnetic fields, strong heat, water also chemicals.
2. To avoid damaging the date disc and the movement, please observe the following. Always turn the hour hand first above midnight (the date changes), and then to 6 o'clock 30 minutes. Now set the date and day etc. (via the quick switching function) from the previous day. Now pull the crown back into the hand correction position and turn the crown until the correct date appears. If it is afternoon, you must turn the hour hand again over the 12 o'clock position, so to "afternoon".
3. The crown of the watch should always be pressed in or screwed (if possible) tight when worn to avoid contamination by dust and corrosion by moisture. Please note that an unnoticed impact can lead to water leakage. There are various water resistance standards, which are explained below water resistance.
4. Please do not open your watch yourself, because only a tightly closed and undamaged case can protect the movement properly. To avoid damage, please return the watch to us in the event of a warranty claim or for repairs.
5. Please note that excessive UV/solar radiation can lead to discoloration and aging of the dial.
6. As with your car, a timepiece must be checked and serviced regularly to ensure that it functions perfectly and to prevent possible damage. On average, you should have your watch checked by an expert every 4-6 years to replace worn parts and restore its water resistance.
7. Each movement is oiled and lubricated. To prevent the important lubricants and oils from drying out, a mechanical movement must be wound at least once a month when worn irregularly. For automatic watches, we recommend the use of a watch winder, which also makes it easier to adjust your watch.
