Watch Care & Instructions

Every timepiece requires proper care.
Read on the following key information to care for your watch, such as tips on daily care, cleaning and storage.


Bracelet / Strap Care

We recommend cleaning your watch band frequently to remove sweat buildup and other particles or residue and to prevent odor.

Bracelet Watches
To clean, wipe the metal band with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. If necessary, simply wipe with a little soapy water and dry with a soft cloth. Allow the band to dry completely before wearing.

Do not use metal polish or abrasives to clean or refinish your metal band as this may result in damage to cosmetic finishes. Avoid direct contact with sprays such as hairsprays, perfumes or detergents.

Leather Straps
To clean, wipe the leather band with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. You may dampen the cloth lightly, if needed, to remove dirt buildup. Allow the band to dry completely before wearing.

Avoid soaking your strap in water, prolonged exposure to sunlight as well as direct contact with solvents, detergents and perfumes.

Nylon Straps
To clean, wash the band in cold water. A mild soap may be used to remove stubborn dirt or stains. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and allow to dry completely before wearing.

Silicone or TPU Elastomer Bands
To clean, rinse with water and allow the band to dry before wearing.

To remove residue from lotions, sunscreens, insect repellent, etc., use rubbing alcohol and a lint-free cloth, followed by rinsing with water. Allow the band to dry before wearing.


Operating Instructions

Automatic Watches
The self-winding device in automatic watches keeps the watch wound while it is being worn. Off the wrist, it will keep going for between 28 to 48 hours. To keep its movement in motion after this time, rewind it manually. Alternatively, place in an automatic winding box.

  • For a manual winding watch, turn the crown until it resists, without forcing it.
  • For a self-winding (automatic) watch, we recommend at least 20 turns of the crown.

Quartz Watches
All quartz watches are powered by batteries so it is not necessary to wind them. If your quartz watch stops, have the battery checked as soon as possible. A “dead” battery (acid leakage) may cause serious damage to the movement if left inside the watch too long.


When not on your wrist, your watch should remain in a cool, dry place, protected from light. If you’re storing your watches in a watch box, make sure the watches are stored separately in a compartment each to avoid the watches from being scratched. It is also not advisable to store your watches face down.

Avoid exposure to strong humidity, strong sunlight, strong vibrations and impacts, magnetic fields, extreme temperature and temperature changes etc.
