Handwound Watches

1. Winding the watch

 

Start with the watch crown in the closed position. Then wind your watch by turning the crown clockwise between thumb and index finger until you feel a marked resistance. When fully wound your watch has a power reserve of about 44 hours. 

Be careful not to wind beyond the point of resistance.

2. Setting the time

 

To adjust the time, pull the crown outwards. You will feel a click once the gears are engaged. Turn the crown to set the time. Always adjust time winding forward, to protect the movement and prolong the longevity of the mechanism. i.e. From 2pm to 3pm or from 3pm, a full round to 2pm.

 

Never wind backwards.

Caring for the watch

1. Case

 

The casing of our watches is made from 316L stainless steel and sapphire crystal glass. This grade of steel is medical grade and does not corrode easily. As for the crystal, it is one of the hardest elements around and is virtually scratch proof; with the exception of diamond.

2. Water-resistance

 

All watches are water resistant. Wearing them while washing your hands will not cause them any problems, but you should take them off before a dip in the pool or entering a shower.

3. Magnetic fields

 

Magnetic fields can harm all mechanical watches, so it’s best to avoid them. If you notice any abrupt loss of time accuracy, your watch could have been magnetized. A watchmaker can fix this quickly.

4. Service

 

A mechanical watch should undergo a complete servicing around once every five years. This involves cleaning and replacing the watch oil lubricating it. We recommend you to send your watch back to us or to a watchmaker for a service.
