Precautions and preventive measures
Before making any settings, please adhere to the instructions given hereafter.
Never activate the time-setting crown and/or the pushers while the watch is under water and make sure that the crown has been pushed/screwed down tightly after every operation. Do not under any circumstances open the watch yourself; arrange to get it inspected by an authorised AUGUSTE REYMOND® Service Centre only.
The water resistance of a watch cannot permanently be guaranteed. It may be affected by ageing of gaskets or by accidental shock to the crown. We recommend that you have the water resistance of your watch checked once a year by an authorised AUGUSTE REYMOND® Service Centre.
Water resistance of watches is rated based on laboratory pressure tests comparable to a swimmer or diver sitting still at that pressure level. However many water-based activities involve a lot of movement and other environmental changes. These exceptions to how the watch was rated may challenge or defeat the water protection features of a water resistant watch.
Screw down crown
To ensure greater water resistance, certain watches are equipped with a screwed down crown. Don’t forget to screw the crown; otherwise the watch has only a reduced water resistance.
Do not expose your watch to sudden temperature changes (exposure to sun light followed by immersion in cold water) or extreme temperatures [over 59°C (140°F) or below 5 °C (32°F)].
Do not expose your watch to strong magnetic fields such as loudspeakers, portable telephones, computers or refrigerators and other electromagnetic appliances.
All our watches are shock resistant for the normal daily use. For a long life care, avoid thermal or other shocks, as it may harm your watch. In the event of a violent shock, please have your watch checked by an authorised AUGUSTE REYMOND® Service Centre.
Avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetic products etc., since they may damage the bracelet, the case or the gaskets of the case.
Care and checks
Clean the case and bracelet regularly using a soft cloth to prevent any corrosion caused by perspiration. All water resistant watches can be cleaned with a toothbrush and soapy water, and then dried with a soft cloth. After being worn in the sea, the watch must be rinsed with warm fresh water and then dried completely.
