For watches equipped with a screw-down crown please take care
to secure the crown before exposing the watch to water. In order to
minimize the possibility of cross-threading the crown turn the crown
counter-clockwise while pushing it in towards the case body until
you feel the beginning of the threads on the case tube and crown slip
over each other. After the beginning of the threads are aligned then
turn the crown clockwise until you can no longer turn the crown with
a modest amount of effort. The crown is now securely threaded onto
the case tube and the watch is water resistant. If you should feel any
resistance or any indication that the crown is threading onto the case
tube improperly immediately unscrew the crown and reattempt to
secure the crown.

YOUR TIMEPIECE
MAGNETIC FIELDS
Magnetic fields can adversely affect the accuracy of your wristwatch.
Please do not expose your watch to magnetic fields unless it has
been specifically noted that the watch is anti-magnetic. If your watch
is specified as anti-magnetic please take care not to expose the
timepiece to a field stronger than the watch’s rating. If your watch
has been adversely affected by exposure to a magnetic field please
contact a watchmaker for service. De-magnetizing a watch is
generally inexpensive and in most instances does not require that the
watch be opened.
WATER
To achieve the longest service life possible from your watch please
rinse your watch after each exposure to chemically treated water or
sea water. After rinsing or exposure to water in general, allow your
watch to dry thoroughly (i.e. do not seal the watch in a bag or other
unventilated container). It is strongly recommended that you remove
your watch before showering or using a sauna/hot tub. Exposure to
these environments can prematurely age components and seals.
Weakened or aging seals can lead to a loss of water resistance
or unacceptable increase in the humidity level inside the watch
(indicated by condensation on the underside of the crystal).
CHEMICALS
Take care not to expose the watch to corrosive chemicals, paints or
solvents. Exposure to such materials may adversely affect the water
resistance and/or damage the finish and function of your timepiece.
ROUTINE SERVICE
It is generally recommended that your timepiece be serviced every
couple of years or when the timepiece demonstrates a loss of
accuracy or another function. If the watch is used for swimming,
diving, or similar activities it is recommended that you have the water
resistance checked on an annual basis and the gaskets changed as
required.
