To ensure your watch provides complete satisfaction for many years to come, please follow the instructions listed below:
- Avoid any impact that might damage your watch or affect its running.
- Avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures.
- Avoid leaving your watch exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods.
- Avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes or any chemicals, since they may damage your watch’s components.
- Make sure that the crown is always pushed back into the normal running position, to prevent moisture, water or dust penetrating into the case.
- Never operate the crown or chronograph push-buttons when the watch is wet or underwater to prevent water penetrating into the case.
- Use soapy water or soft cloth for cleaning metal bracelets. Rinse with clean water to eliminate washing residue. Never use cleaning or polishing agents.
- Always rinse your watch in lukewarm water after use in a saline or chlorinated environment (sea water, swimming pool).
- Leather strap is vulnerable to discoloration and deterioration from moisture, sweat and direct sunlight.
- Use a soft dry cloth to wipe off moisture and sweat as soon as possible after use
- Refrain from using it while bathing, swimming, or water-related activities.
- Avoid using or placing sharp objects on leather watch strap. Leather may be durable, but not accident or damage proof.
- Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or strong light to prevent the color from fading.
- Avoid contact with greasy substances, cosmetic products and perfumes.
- Take off your watch when performing some menial work and avoid potential corrosive stains.
- Avoid wearing it tightly. Always leave enough space so that you can fit at least one finger between the watch strap and your skin. This helps air circulation and lets moisture evaporate more effectively.
