Please read all information careully, especially for AUTOMATIC Watches
* Frist thing when receiving the watch
Carefully open the package, do not use any sharp tools to cut protection wrappers to avoid any cause of scraches to the surface. If your watch has a screw-tight crown (lock), release it by turning it counterwise until it loose and the crown will pop out released. Wind the watch gently by turing the crown for about 15-20 full turns clockwise. (DO NOT continue winding watch if felt stuck, could be the movement already fully winded). To tighen up the crown, turn the crown clockwise and screw it tight back at the same time. (This only have screw-tight crown watch).
* How to set up the time
Unscrew the crown counterwise direction if you have a screw-in crown watch. Gently pull the crown out a little bit. The best wa to do is to use first and scond finger and use finger knuckle as a lever in order to pull the crown out with a little force as possible. Once you feel a little "click" you can set the time by turning it counterwise "turning down" and the minute-hour hands will foward until you set the right time. (For AUTOMATIC watch DO NOT adjust the clock backward when you accidently pass the correct timming.) It would cause unstable for the movement when adjusting the time backwards.
* How to set up the date
To change or adjusting the date. Gently pull the crown out softly by using your thumb's nail (too hard will damage the spring). You shall feel a "click". There are two steps when you pull the crown out. The Frist Step is for setting up the date (and if you have a DAY-DATE) turn upward clockwise is to adjust the Date, by turning downward counterwise is to adjust the Day. DO NOT ADJUST the DATE or DAY with the time 10:00 to 3:00. It will damage the internal geras unknowingly if you do that. The best way is manually adjust the time to 6:00 and then adjust the DATE or DAY.
* Recessed pusher of uses
Some watches have Recessed Pusher, the uses is to adjust the day, date, year or etc. Use a ball-point pen to push the recessed pusher all-the-way and release fully will make it change accordingly. Repeat the process until you set the right information. DO NOT push half way or release half way, it will sometimes cause the gear to change half way and make it show the wrong information and it might damage other mechanical parts in the watch’s movement.
* How to setup GMT Time
GMT means Dual Time Zone and it usually use a 24-hour clock instead of a 12-hour. GMT can be set with two time zones. A local minute-hour hand time and a GMT (sometimes red) arrow second time zone. To adjust GMT hand, unwind the crown counterwise softly and slowly until it loosen up. There are two steps of pulling out the button stem. Do not exert too much force here and please make sure you do it lightly and carefully. Pull one-step out is to set GMT and date by winding the button clockwise and counterwise respectively. Pull one more step is for setting local time. Pushing the crown inward one step will bring it back to GMT setting. Pushing it two steps will bring it back to normal position and you can wind it back clockwise while pushing it back softly to secure the crown onto the watchcase.
Set local time FIRST and then GMT SECOND time zone. When you set local time, GMT time will also be changed at the same time
* Chronographs Movements Valjoux 7750 / 7753 / 7750B1 or 4130 to advoid damge
If you have 7750/7753/B1 or 4130 movement has DATE function, DO NOT ADJUST the date when your time is between 10:00 to 3:00 (adjust the time to 6:00 when changing the dates).
When you are using the chronograph functions, always MAKE SURE that you to start the stopwatch, you depress the pusher button on top and also to STOP the stopwatch, depress the same pusher buttom. REMEMBER START & STOP is TOP Pusher Button Only after you STOP the stopwatch, then you depress the lower pusher button to RESET the stopwatch function. DO NOT DEPRESS the lower pusher button when the stopwatch function is running. ONLY Depress the lower pusher button after you STOP the chronograph.
Do not activate the chrono until you have done all these steps as mentioned above. Remember to handwind the piece for about maybe 50 rounds, so to generate enough power reserve. Then you shake the piece for 3-4 minutes to generate more power reserve (If necessary) Then pull the crown out to adjust the hour hand manually to determine when is am/pm. See the date change - then you will know when is am/ pm. Make sure you know when is am/ pm before you proceed
* How does Tachymeter works?
Many sports version watches have it either on the rim or bezel. In conjunction with the second hand, it gives the speed of a moving object. A tachymeter takes a value determined in less than a minute and converts it into miles per hour. For example, a wearer could measure the time it takes a car to pass between mile markers on the highway. When the car passes the second marker, the second hand will be pointing to the cars speed in miles per hour on the tachymetric scale.
Have Questions was not mention above
If you follow the instructions carefully, your watch will last you a long time. Naturally watches may not last a lifetime since they aren’t made to COSC standards and neither are they SWISS GENEVE made or stamped. Remember a replica is always a replica but do enjoy them as at a fraction of the cost, these cosmetically perfect replicas are a joy to wear.
Warm reminder: ALWAYS Make sure you don't adjust the date between 10:00 to 3:00 never ever! Do not ask me why because it just works this way.
