WHAT PRECAUTIONS CAN I TAKE BEFORE USING MY WATCH IN WATER?

Before using your water-resistant watch in water, there are several ways to ensure its protection:

• Verify its water-resistance by bringing it to Watchworks within past 12 months.

• Ensure the crown is fully pushed in (and depending on the model, screwed down) against the case in order to preserve its water-resistance.

• Leather straps are not advisable as they can be deformed/discolored by water. For frequent or prolonged use in water, we recommend a metal bracelet or rubber strap.

• After exposure to salt water, rinse the watch in fresh water then dry it.

• The table below indicates appropriate activities for the water-resistance of your watch. These figures are meant as a guide only, and don’t show maximum immersion depths.
