The water resistance is the capacity of a watch to resist pressure underwater and is measured in bars or atmospheres of pressure. The water resistance of a watch is measured in meters or atm. In terms of water resistance, 1 atm equals 10 meters, 2 atm equals 20 meters, and so on.
A watch with a water resistance of less than 5 atm should not be immersed in water. A splash on the surface should not affect water resistance, but the impact of submersion could damage the watch. The waterproofness of a watch is guaranteed for a limited time. We recommend checking mechanical and quartz watches every one to two years.
MANUAL & AUTOMATIC WATCHES
An automatic watch uses a rotor, or a metal weight, to power the clock. The rotor will oscillate freely within the watch. Every time the owner uses the watch and moves its wrist, the rotor oscillates. This rotating movement is transferred to the energy that winds the watch's mainspring automatically.
A mechanical watch works by winding the crown before wearing it. The mechanical energy of winding the crown is converted into energy in the watch's mainspring, which is then released smoothly clockwise.
And the quartz watches, require a battery to work. This is the energy source that powers the function of its model. It is recommended to consider changing batteries every 2-4 years (depending on the watch model) to keep the watch functioning properly.
YOUR WATCH AND ITS DOCUMENTS
We recommend that you have our certified watchmakers check your watch every two to three years. And every five years, we recommend you to completely overhaul your timepiece, to ensure a long life for your watch.
We also suggest, you keep your timepiece or jewelry documents as warranty and care instructions, to guide you in keeping it in optimal conditions and perfectly working.
