Please take care to handle your watch in a suitable manner and observe the following preventative measures.
Protect the watch from magnetic fields.
Do not place the watch near major heat sources.
Make sure that the winding button is closed before entering water.
Rinse the watch in soft water after bathing in the ocean.
The chronograph hand should not be used as a second hand.
Do not press the stop function while the watch is under water.
Be sure to take proper care of your leather wristband. Water, oily materials and other cleaning agents cause the material to age faster.
When you are not wearing your mechanical watch, you should wind it once a month.
For SBS aluminium watches:
Please bear in mind that the watch you are wearing on your wrist is made from the exterior shell of a Soyuz rocket. It is made of an especially robust aluminium alloy whose basic hardness has been increased by means of multiple processes. Its scratch resistance is comparable to that of a steel watch thanks to an especially hard anodising treatment. However, aluminium is still aluminium, and despite all of these measures, it is still a somewhat softer base material than steel. Heavy impacts can therefore leave larger marks on your watch than on a steel watch. Please bear this in mind and treat your watch with the appropriate care.
