When do I need to service my timepiece?
The movement and the water resistance should be checked periodically.
Can a shock disturb my watch?
My watch is running fast. Why?
If your watch is running fast, it may have been exposed to magnetic fields. If necessary, a simple demagnetization process can be performed by a professional watchmaker, before resetting the time. If not, you watch might need a maintenance service.

Ensure that your watch is fitted properly on your wrist. This improves the efficiency of the winding system and avoids premature wear of the links of your metal bracelet. Avoid wearing several watches or items of jewelry on the same wrist, as doing so risks scratching the watch and metal bracelet links.
Even if you have not worn your timepiece for a while, you should wind your mechanical watch (self-winding or manual-winding) at least once a month. For a manual-winding watch, turn the crown until it resists, without forcing it. For a self-winding watch, we recommend at least 30 turns of the crown. This helps keep the movement components well lubricated.
The movement and the water resistance should be checked periodically. Water resistance seals exposed to the environment (temperature differences, acidity, amongst others) should be replaced every two to three years depending on wear and tear. This routine water-resistance service is the only way to protect the heart of your watch from dust and humidity.
Throughout everyday life, we are often exposed to magnetic fields that may cause timepieces to run slower, excessively fast, or even stop. If necessary, a simple demagnetization process can be performed by a professional watchmaker, before resetting the time.
Avoid correcting the date, month or lunar cycle in the afternoon or evening. Similarly, avoid manipulating the annual or perpetual calendar outside of the time ranges recommended in the watch manual.
Before swimming, check that the crown and push-pieces are fully screwed down. Aside from crowns on our "Diver" models, crown and push-pieces should not be activated while submerged in water. After swimming in salt water, rinse the watch with fresh water.
Clean your watch and its metal bracelet regularly with warm water, rinse with fresh water, and dry with a soft cloth. This simple gesture limits the abrasive or corrosive effects of the chlorine, seawater, sand and perfume.
