How to use your Swiss AUTOMATIC watch
If your automatic watch stops, don't worry it's not broken, it just merely needs to be wound. The automatic watch doesn't use a battery to power the hands. Swiss automatic movements (like those found in Rolex or Breitling) have a sweeping seconds hand with a continuous motion due to the spring inside the movement which is applying continuous power. The watch needs to be "wound" to keep enough tension on the main spring which drives the hands. This is achieved by unscrewing the crown and then in 1st Position turning the crown clockwise 40 complete turns to fully charge the spring. The watch has a power reserve of about 42 hours, meaning that it will continue running for that time even if not worn. Once the watch has been sitting idle for more than that time, the spring is unwound and therefore needs to be rewound.
These instructions will explain how to unscrew the crown, wind the watch, set the date and then set the time. Winding the watch happens in 1st position; setting the date happens in 2nd position; setting the time happens in 3rd position, and everything begins with unscrewing the crown.
Mechanical (automatic) watches are delicate pieces of machinery that can be thrown off kilter if the proper precautions aren't taken; among things that can affect a timepiece are magnetic fields, extreme temperatures, and shocks. Warranty on your custom watch is for 12 months [applies to the original owner] and does not cover wear & tear. Your watch has been manufactured according to the standards established for Swiss production. Each watch is inspected and has been electronically tested with various precision machines to ensure water resistance and timing function. Water can only get into the watch if the crown is left unscrewed or has not fully been screwed in. The watch is guaranteed to be free from defect due to faulty manufacturing for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase (excluding crystal glass, crown, bracelet, band, battery [where applicable] ). Our warranty does not cover against damage caused by third parties; wear & tear or user error. Should your watch require repair, please contact us via email for instructions on how to proceed before sending your watch back. We recommend that you send the watch without the watch box to reduce shipping weight, though very well packed and insured. We will inspect the watch upon receipt to determine the cause of the damage.
