HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU SERVICE YOUR WATCH?

Check water resistance every 2 years (every year if in frequent contact with water)

Servicing every 4 to 5 years

Jewelry watches are precious and fragile. They are water-resistant, but are not designed to be completely submerged in water. The water resistance feature protects the watch against dust, rain and splashing water. This protection is provided by a series of seals, which we recommend replacing every two years to ensure optimal protection. Do not wear your watch in a sauna, steam room, bath or shower. Sudden changes in temperature may damage the seals.

For maximum accuracy and reliability, we recommend not wearing your watch when playing a potentially high-impact sport like tennis, golf, and horse riding. Also, stay at least 10 cm away from highly magnetised objects like smartphones, tablet computers, induction hobs, speakers, TV screens, and airport security detectors. For more information about magnetisation, please read the Watchmaker's Advice section.

Your watch is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement that winds itself with the movement of the wrist, which causes the oscillating weight to turn on its axis. The power reserve can be affected if the strap is not adjusted correctly, so it is important that your watch is properly fitted. When the watch is not being worn, it has a power reserve of 42 hours. It must be manually wound when the power reserve runs out.

If the watch remains idle, we recommend winding it manually every two or three weeks (20-25 winds of the crown) so the movement's lubricating oils stay intact.

Important: It is best not to adjust the date between 10:00 PM and 1:00 AM (and between 4:30 PM and 1:00 AM for Moon Phase models).

Do not submerge your watch in water to avoid damaging the strap.

Use only a clean and dry soft cloth to clean your strap. Do not use chemicals like soap, alcohol or solvents. Avoid contact with water.
