Caring for Your Automatic Watch
Although automatic mechanical watches do not have batteries, some easy-to-follow maintenance is necessary for continued and long-lasting good use.
Self-winding automatic watches depend on the movement of the arm to operate and do require some winding, even if you wear your watch on a daily basis.
If you wear your Automatic watch every day, it is best to wind it once, every two weeks to keep the wheels in motion and oil fluid. Simply wind the crown (the same knob used to adjust the time and date) until you meet slight resistance.
If you do not wear your Automatic watch every day, you should try to wind it at least twice a week to ensure continuous operation, as well as keeping the inside mechanism in complete running order.
When changing the time due to changes to winter and summer time or when going abroad please make sure that you have fixed the crown back in to place if not your watch will let in water. If you are not sure how to do this please consult your instruction manual or call us.
If you have the battery in your watch changed, you should be sure to have it resealed and pressure tested by the jeweller to ensure that it is still water resistant to the stated depth.
At Ebling Feres we are happy to change your battery for a small fee and re seal the watch. Please contact our customer service team for more details.
Please note that by using an unauthorised dealership or repair shop will null and void your warranty
