CARE & PRECAUTIONS
Your timepiece should be cleaned with a soft cloth and water only. Your time pieces should be rinsed clean and dried with a soft cloth after any saltwater use. In order to maintain the new look of metal bracelets, we recommend periodic cleanings of the bracelet. Dip a soft brush in warm soapy water and gently rub bracelet clean. We advise having your timepiece serviced every 18 – 24 months to ensure long use and trouble-free operation.
Your timepiece is a complex integration of parts and components brought together by skilled craftsmen. There are certain actions or environmental situations that may damage or impede your timepiece’s ability to perform optimally.
It is important to avoid the following conditions; extreme heat or cold, as well as prolonged periods of exposure to direct sunlight, exposure to wet conditions that exceed your timepiece’s water rating. Never operate any of the function buttons or crown when timepiece is in contact with water.
Watches that do not have WATER RESIST or WATER RESISTANCE marked on the back cover are not protected against the effect of sweat. Avoid using such watch under conditions where it will be exposed to large amounts of sweat or moisture, or to direct splashing with water.
Do not operate the crown or buttons while your watch is submersed in water or wet.
Do not wear your watch while in a heated swimming pool, sauna, or any other high temperature/high humidity environment.
Do not wear your watch while washing your hands or while performing any other task that involves soaps or detergents.
After submersion in seawater, use plain water to rinse all salt and dirt from your watch.
Tightening the band too tightly can cause you to sweat and make it difficult for air to pass under the band, which may lead to skin irritation.
Deterioration,rust, and other conditions can cause the band to break or come off of yourwatch, creating the risk of your watch falling from your wrist and lost.
Allowing your watch to remain in contact with other items or storing it together with other items for a long period while it is wet may cause the colour of the leather band to transfer to the other items or vice versa. Be sure to dry off your watch thoroughly with a soft cloth before storing it and make sure it is not in contact with other items.
Extreme temperature can cause your watch to lose or gain time, to stop, or otherwise malfunction.
The watch is designed to withstand impact incurred during normal daily use and during light activities. Dropping your watch or otherwise subjecting it to strong impact, however, can lead to malfunction.
If you do not plan to use your watch for a very long time, thoroughly wipe it free of all dirt, sweat, and moisture, and store it in a cool, dry place.
CHEMICALS & METAL COMPONENETS
Failure to clean dirt from metal components can lead to formation of rust, even if components are stainless steel or plated. If metal components are exposed to sweat or water, wipe thoroughly with a soft, absorbent cloth and then place the watch in a well-ventilated location to dry.
