CHANEL places the utmost importance on the quality of the materials which make up your watch. Special care and maintenance will allow your watch to look its best and function properly for longer.
An automatic watch should be manually wound after an inactive period of about three weeks to avoid the oil in the movement from drying out.
Mechanical automatic watches self-wind due to the movement of the wrist. A badly adjusted bracelet can result in a reduction in autonomy. It is therefore important that your watch bracelet be correctly sized.
When not worn, a fully wound watch has a maximum power reserve of 42 hours.
Beyond this margin of autonomy, the watch will need to be manually wound to ensure a full power reserve.
Even though mechanical movements are fitted with the means to absorb shock, they are still relatively fragile.
It is therefore recommended to avoid wearing your watch while undertaking any “high impact” activities, such as playing golf or tennis, where repeated shocks can deregulate or even damage the watch mechanism.
