 Care of Your Watch


The watch itself should be cleaned with a soft cloth and water only (while crown is screwed down) . Avoid getting leather bands wet. Metal bracelets should be cleaned with a soft brush and warm soapy water. Then rinsed with clean water and dried with a soft cloth.
If you have not worn your watch for 24 hours or more, it should be wound about 30 times to replenish its power reserve. Do not adjust the date of your watch between 8pm-4am. Changing the date the date between these time could damage gears in your watch.  Always set your time by turning hands clockwise (turning crown towards you)  Turning the hands counter clockwise could damage your movement. Damages resulting from these actions are not covered under warranty.

Normal sports activities will not affect the watch’s integrity. However, any type of violent shock may upset the movement and the watch’s ability to keep correct time.

Instructions For Use

Sizing

To size your watch use included screwdriver (if included with your package purchase) to size if your watch has screws in the links.  For models with push pins remove pins in directions of arrows on the inside of the bracelet (using the enclosed tool  if your purchased package includes one).  If you have not sized a watch before or do not feel comfortable sizing it yourself we recommend you take it to a  professional.  Be especially careful with the push pins as you can slip and stab yourself in the hand or fingers.  Aquacy Watches is not responsible for injury should you choose to size your own watch. Sizing your watch is at your own risk.  We also recommend you wear safety glasses while sizing your watch.

Changing Strap or Bracelet

Your package may have included an extra strap.  Should you wish to change it yourself use the provided strap changing tool (if your purchased package came with the tool) if you have never changed a watch strap before or do not feel comfortable doing it we recommend you take it to a  professional to be changed.  Lugs can easily be scratched during this process if you are not familiar with the process.  The springs bars are spring loaded and can sometimes "shoot out".  We recommend you wear safety glasses when changing your watch strap.   Aquacy Watches is not responsible for injury should you choose to change your own watch strap or bracelet.  Aquacy Watches is also not responsible for any damage you may cause to your watch during the process.

 Winding With the crown in Position A, wind the watch about 30 times. This will power the mainspring of your watch. The rotor will continue to wind the watch as you wear it and keep the watch going. The watch has a power reserve of about 40 hours when fully wound.

Setting the Time: Pull the crown out to Position C to set the time(hours and minutes). The second hand will stop in place when the crown is pulled out to this position. This feature is known as “hacking".

Setting the Date: Pull the crown out to Position B to set the date. Only advance the date when the time is after 4 A.M. and before 8 P.M.

If placing onto a watch winder the winder should be set at Bi-Directional Winding. Aquacy recommends Arcanent Watch Winders at Arcanent.com

Do not adjust the date of your watch between 8pm-4am. Changing the date the date between these time could damage gears in your watch.  Always set your time by turning hands clockwise (turning crown towards you)  Turning the hands counter clockwise could damage your movement. Damages resulting from these actions are not covered under warranty.

If your watch stops while not wearing it (like at night while you sleep) then you likely are not wearing it enough time each day to keep it wound.  Typically it should be worn at least 8 hours a day. You can also wind it some each time before putting on or place it on a watch winder to keep it running when not in use.
