Rules for the use of watches
- Do not use the clock in the mode prohibited by the factory.
- Protect the clock from the effects of factors that can damage the clock, glass, external coating, or damage the clock mechanism.
- Categorically forbidden loads, beats, vibrations, lessons with extreme sports, moto driving and heavy equipment.
- Protect the clock from the effects of magnetic fields and statistical electric charges. It is strictly forbidden to place the watch near TVs, computers, refrigerators and microwave ovens. As a result, the clock mechanism can magnetize, which will lead to inaccuracies (this applies to both quartz and mechanical watches).
- Protect the clock from substances that can aggressively affect metals: chemistry, cosmetics, perfumery, sweat, water with chlorine or salt impurities, detergents.
- Prevent natural factors from entering the watch housing (moisture, sand, or dust).
- Protect the watch from unauthorized objects entering the enclosure.
- Protect the clock from too high or too low temperatures. It is imperative to remove your wristwatch before visiting the pool, watercourse, sauna, sauna or spa. Do not leave the clock in direct sunlight. If the clock is subjected to rapid temperature fluctuations, it may be followed by de-metering, as the body and gaskets will deform.
- It is strictly forbidden to engage in water sports (water aerobics, swimming, surfing, diving, water motorcycles and water skis). In the gym, use another clock for sports.
- If the clock is in the water, it is not advisable to do anything with the buttons or the factory head: water can flow inside.
- Do not rotate the clock clockwise to the mechanical clock.
- Do not change the date in the clock calendar between 21:00 and 06:00 as the automatic date change mechanism is running during this time period.
- It is forbidden to remove the back cover of the watch body independently and disassemble the mechanism.
- The mechanical clock should be worn regularly at the same time of day, removing it from the hand. If you do not use your clock during this period, it is mandatory to wear it, otherwise there will be a thickening of the lubricant, which is responsible for the accuracy of the run. Watches with automatic winding should preferably be worn with a special box with a rotating mechanism.
- Before going to bed, the wristwatch must be removed from the arm so that you cannot bump or damage it during sleep.
- If your watch is gilded or has a different coating, avoid exposing the material to the casing (jacket, dress, fur coat) as this will cause the coating to shrink.
- If you decide to clean your watch, strap or bracelet, it is strictly forbidden to use chemical agents. Exposure to such substances can damage the surface of the body or strap. If you decide to clean your wrist watches, it is preferable to use a dry and soft cloth. Some models of watches are equipped with pictures made with scribbling technique. Such models should be cleaned very carefully to avoid scratching the original drawing.
Watches with leather straps
- Such watch straps must not be in contact with water unless they are made of waterproof material.
- If the watch itself is protected from water ingress, but its strap is not waterproof, bathing with such a clock is strictly prohibited (the strap may deform). To limit contact with water, replace the standard strap with waterproof.
- If you decide to wash your dishes or hands, remove the clock in a timely manner. Do not leave the clock in direct sunlight, dry it with a hairdryer, heating radiators, or under incandescent bulbs.
- The strap should not wrap your hand too tightly, leaving a free space between your finger and your hand.
- Under normal circumstances, the use of leather straps varies from half a year to a year. Polymer straps can be worn for up to 18 months.
- If the strap is subjected to regular exposure to moisture, chemicals and other harmful materials, its use time will be significantly reduced.
- If your watch with a waterproof strap or iron bracelet has been in contact with sea water, it should be thoroughly washed with running tap water and wiped with a soft cloth.
Watch straps made of polymeric materials
Often, this type of strap can produce a white powder, but it does not confuse you - it is absolutely harmless to human health and is easy to clean with a dry soft cloth. Storing the strap in high humidity as well as getting rain and sweat on it can lead to cracks and other damage. To increase the lifespan of such straps, regularly clean them with water and dirt with a soft, soft cloth.
Watches with metal bracelets
If you want to reduce or increase the length of the bracelet, repair it, it is imperative that you only contact the specialist watch service. If the length of the bracelet is perfect for your wrist, it will only prolong its lifespan. In order to preserve the original appearance of the bracelet throughout its lifetime, hand it over at least once every 6 months to the warranty service.
A variety of glasses are used in the manufacture of watches, but none of these types of glass is impact resistant. Therefore, the clock should be treated with the utmost care, as even a small blow can cause a crack in the glass or a cut.
Water resistance of watches
- 30М - initial degree of water protection, contact with water is strictly prohibited.
- 50M - second degree of protection with a possible load of up to 5 atm. In this case it is allowed to wash your hands or get into the rain, but it is not recommended to do different types of water sports.
- 100М - protection capacity up to 10 atm. Normal swimming is allowed, but not diving, even if you dive with scuba. It is also forbidden to engage in water sports.
- 200М - protection capacity up to 10 atm. Swimming and diving are allowed, not water sports. Protect the clock from the tap jet, as the water pressure in this case is high enough to reduce the watertightness of the watch.
To increase the durability of a waterproof watch, contact your service department before each swimming season to perform the following manipulations:
