WATCH CARE
SKAGEN suggests the following solutions for cleaning metal and crystal surfaces:
3:1 SOLUTION OF AMMONIA-BASED WINDOW CLEANER TO WATER
OR
4:1 SOLUTION OF RUBBING ALCOHOL TO WATER
*Do not use soap products, as soap will leave residue behind when dry. These suggested
solutions will evaporate cleanly from metal and glass surfaces.
TO CLEAN THE CASE AND CRYSTAL
Moisten a soft cloth with one of the above solutions. Gently wipe the case and crystal clean.
Be careful not to put too much stress on the crystal as you clean. Avoid immersing or soaking
the case or crystal portion of the watch, regardless of water-resistance rating.
TO CLEAN THE BAND OR STRAP
METAL
Dip a cotton swab into one of the above solutions and gently rub it on the unclean area of
the band. For more intricate mesh bands, you may want to use a soft-bristle toothbrush or
nailbrush. Be sure to cover the case of the watch during this process so as not to soak it. For
stubborn dirt, you may want to take your watch in to the nearest SKAGEN location.
SILICON, FELT AND CERAMIC
Simply wipe the strap down with a damp, soft cloth. Avoid soaps and solvents as they may
damage the material.
LEATHER
Simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth, using water only. You may want to use leather
conditioner or a small amount of hand lotion to keep the leather supple over time. Top-grain
leather may develop a milky “haze” if left alone for extended periods. This can simply be
wiped away or removed with leather conditioner. A product called “nubuck eraser” can be
used to remove light stains and debris from the inside of the strap.
MESH BAND ADJUSTMENT
TO ADJUST THE BAND
LIFT
SHIFT
PRESS
1. Position a flathead
screwdriver or other
adjustment tool in the slot on
the clasp. Lift the bar in the
direction facing away from
the straight pin.
2. Shift the adjustable
buckle to the desired
position. Clasp must
be placed in one of the
adjustment indentations on
the back of the band.
3. Press the slotted
clasp closed.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that the
tool handle points toward
the watch case. Pressing the
adjustment tool against the
straight pin may bend and
destroy the pin.
TO SECURE THE BAND
Pull the hook over the pin, snap the flat clasp closed, then close the security clasp.

1. Using a small pointed tool, insert tip into hole on underside of band and push the pin out.
2. Grasp the pin and pull out. Arrows on the band indicate the direction that the links are to
be removed. In order to remove one link, two pins must be removed. If removing more than
one link, remove an equal number of links from both sides to maintain the symmetry of the
wrist band.
3. After removing the necessary number of links, tap the remaining pins back into place using
a small hammer.

MANUALLY WINDING THE WATCH
Instead of a battery, this watch contains an automatic winding movement that generates power
through the movement of your wrist. It will run normally with regular wear, but not wearing the
watch for several consecutive days could exhaust the power reserve.
In the event that the watch has completely stopped, leave the crown in its normal 1 position
and rotate clockwise until you feel resistance. The watch will resume time keeping.
SETTING THE TIME
A. Ensure that the watch is running, or wind it using the instructions above. Pull the crown out
to the 2 position and rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise (depending on model) to set
desired time.
B. Push the crown back to its normal 1 position and the time is now set.
