Care For Your Timepiece

Every hand-made, fine timepiece is a functioning work of art. Although they are made to last, its best to remember a few habits to maintain your timepiece and keep it ticking like new.

Before your timepiece has contact with water, always ensure that the crown of your watch is firmly pushed into place.

The winding crown and push-pieces for the chronograph function cannot be used under water. Your watch should be checked for water-resistance by a specialist watchmaker every 2 or 3 years.

Your watch should only ever be opened by a specialist watchmaker, even if it is just to change the battery. Only a specialist will provide quality water-resistance control and service.

Regular servicing of the movement (approximately every 5 years) will help to prolong the life span of your watch.

Never leave a used battery inside your watch; oxidization may damage the movement beyond repair.

Regular cleaning with a soft brush and soapy water will preserve your watch; especially after swimming, by helping to thoroughly neutralize the harmful effects of seawater and chlorine

Straps require particular care. Frequent contact with water can cause premature wear and tear.
