BATTERY LIFE
If your MICHELE timepiece has a chronograph function, you can extend its battery life
by ensuring the chronograph function does not run continuously.
*NOTE: The chronograph function is in use when the large second hand is in motion.

RESET
1. To stop the chronograph, press pusher A one time.
2. To reset the large second hand to the 12 position, press pusher B one time.
The average battery life when the chronograph is not in use is 2 years. Continuous use
of the chronograph will reduce the average life to approximately 1 year.

WATER RESISTANCE
All MICHELE timepieces are designed with a minimum water-resistance rating of 5ATM
(165ft/50m).
The water-resistance of a timepiece protects the movement from, dust, moisture, and
risk of damage to the movement should it be immersed in water.
Please see chart for guidelines for recommended exposure of various water ratings.
It is important not to attempt to adjust the position of the crown while the timepiece is
in contact with water. Water can enter the case causing damage to the movement.
For timepieces with screw-down crowns, it is important to ensure the crown is in the
proper position and completely locked before contact with water.
For timepieces with chronograph functions, do not engage the chronograph under
water, as water may leak in the case and cause damage to the movement.

TIMEPIECE CARE AND PRECAUTIONS
Each MICHELE timepiece is designed and manufactured to exceed the highest of
standards. Unlike most other mechanical objects, a watch operates non-stop. In order
to ensure optimal performance and longevity from your timepiece, please review the
simple guidelines for care and precautions of your new MICHELE timepiece.
WATCH CASE AND MOVEMENT CARE
Your timepiece should be cleaned with a soft cloth and water only. Do not submerge
your timepiece. To ensure long use and trouble-free operation, we recommend
servicing your timepiece every 18-24 months.
Ceramic Components
Ceramic is of high quality and is naturally porous and brittle, making it a luxurious
material that should be handled with care. To maintain its lustrous appearance, please
buff with a soft cloth. If necessary, wipe clean with a damp cloth using mild soap
and water. Avoid dropping or making contact with hard surfaces. When mishandled,
ceramic may chip or break.
Precautions
Your timepiece is a complex integration of parts and components brought together
by skilled craftsmen. There are certain actions or environmental situations that may
damage or impede your timepiece’s ability to perform optimally.
It is important to avoid the following conditions: extreme heat or cold, as well as
prolonged periods of exposure to direct sunlight, exposure to wet conditions that
exceed your timepiece’s water rating (see case back and chart.) Never operate any of
the function buttons or crown when timepiece is in contact with water.
22
Your timepiece should not be affected by magnetic fields generated by household
items such as televisions or stereos, but avoidance of other strong electric fields or
static electricity, which may interrupt mechanism, is suggested. It is also important to
avoid extreme shock or impact.
STRAP AND BRACELET CARE
At MICHELE we only use first quality materials in making our straps and bracelets. All
straps are specifically designed for the watches they fit.
Exotic Skins and Textiles
The natural material used to manufacture your strap is unique and will vary in texture,
pattern, and markings from other straps within the same collection. No two straps are
alike. Exotic skins & textiles are delicate materials and are sensitive to the elements.
They are not waterproof, and should not be wet for any reason. Water, sunlight,
exposure to chemicals or perspiration will cause discoloration, shrinkage and damage
to your strap. Your strap should not be worn during exercise or while sunbathing.
Patent Leather
Patent leather straps should be stored separately, as color may transfer from other
straps or dark-colored fabrics onto the glossy lacquered surface. Contact with make-up
and grease should be avoided, as these items may penetrate the surface of the strap
and darken or stain the leather.
Synthetic Straps and Metal Bracelets
Rubber straps, silicon straps and stainless steel bracelets are water-resistant. They are
recommended for more active lifestyles. However, please note, they may only be worn
for swimming when paired with watch heads which are 10 ATM or greater.
23
Strap and Bracelet Cleaning
All MICHELE straps and bracelets should be wiped with a soft cloth. No chemicals or
cleaners should be applied to straps.
To maintain the “new look” of metal bracelets, we recommend periodic cleanings with
a soft brush and warm soapy water. Remove the bracelet from the case and gently rub
the bracelet clean.
24
HOW TO CHANGE STRAPS
Push metal tab inward until the pin is released.
Repeat this process in reverse to re-insert the new strap.
*NOTE: The short side of the strap with the buckle should be attached to the 12
o’clock hour. The long side of the strap should be attached to the 6 o’clock hour.
25
HOW TO CHANGE BRACELETS
Tabs Down
Tabs Up
Lift up both tabs.
Push tabs toward each other to release pin.
To re-attach, hold the bracelet against a firm surface, depress the tabs inward, and
attach the head.
