Quality & Trademark All our watches are water resistant but not waterproof; we do not recommend swimming with them or taking showers with them. Taking the watches underwater will revoke their guarantee.

  • Swiss or Japanese?

    Difference between Swiss and Japanese Quality:

    Body:
    The materials that are used for the casing, bracelet, and exterior features of both types of watch are the same. The only difference is in the precision of the manufacturing. Some exterior details may be closer to the original and the exterior features of the watch may be more exact on the Swiss models.

    Mechanism:
    The biggest difference between Swiss and Japanese quality is the mechanism itself. Swiss quality watches are made with Swiss ETA movement and are actually made in Switzerland. They are identical to the original in every way. Japanese quality watches are made with Miyota movement. This mechanism can sometimes be less precise.

    Features:

    • On Japanese quality watches the chronograph feature is sometimes just for show.
    • On Swiss quality watches the power reserve is better so it will need to be wound less.

    Warning:
    Although some sites may make a claim their replica watches are water proof no replica watch is water proof. They are water resistant. This means you cannot submerge your watch in water and you should remove it before taking a shower.

    WATCH INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION

    Warning:

    This watch is water resistant not water proof. You cannot submerge your watch in water and you should remove it before taking a shower.

    Understanding your watch:

    The Crown: The crown is the main dial or knob on your watch. It is the biggest and the center one to the right. It is used to set and wind your watch.

    The crown has 4 positions:

    Position 1: Closed- When you receive your watch the crown will be in the closed position. Once you have opened the crown you need to press the crown inwards and turn it clockwise to screw it back into the closed position. It is always advisable to keep the crown tightly closed when you are not adjusting the date or time.

    Position 2: Winding- Starting with the watch in the closed position, if you turn the crown counter-clockwise the knob will unscrew, once unscrewed it will pop out. This initial position is for winding. Always wind in a clockwise direction (away from your body). Winding counter clockwise can damage your watch.

    Position 3: Date-Starting with the crown in position 2 gently nudge the dial outwards by pulling with your thumb and forefinger. It is important to note that pulling it all the way out will move it to position 4. You need to find the sweet spot between position 2 and 4 to change the date. If your watch does not display the date there will be no position 3. When the crown is in the date position it is very important that you do not force it counter clockwise. You can damage the mechanism.

    Position 4: Time- Starting from either position 2 or 3, with your thumb and forefinger pull the crown out until it stops. From this final position you can change the time. Always move the crown in a clockwise direction. Moving the dial counter clockwise can damage the mechanism.

    *Some watches (Hublot & Cartier) have 4 different dials or knobs that are used for setting the date and time.

    Operating Instructions:

    Winding your watch: When you first receive your automatic watch you will need to manually wind it for approximately 1 minute. This is what we call ‘jumpstarting’ your watch. From position 2 turn the dial clockwise for 3 consecutive minutes. Do not turn the dial counter clockwise. You could damage the mechanism.

    To ensure your watch is fully wound we recommend also winding it by 2 full clockwise circles 3 times a day for the following 2 to 3 days. After that your watch will continue to self-wind from the motion of your wrist provided you continue to wear it every day.

    Setting the Time: While the crown is in position 4 turn the dial clockwise (away from your body) until the hands have reached the correct position. Do not turn the dial counter-clockwise. You could damage the mechanism.

    Setting the Date: With the crown in position 3 turn the dial clockwise (away from your body) to change the date. If your watch also displays the day you may be able to turn the dial counter clockwise to change the day. Do not force it; if your watch does not have this functionality you could damage your watch by turning the dial counter clockwise.

     

    Chronographs: Many of our watch models feature up to 3 sub-dials. These are chronographs (essentially stop watches) with timekeeping intervals ranging from seconds to hours. The chronographs are activated with start/stop push buttons located next to the crown. To start a chronograph, simply push the button corresponding to that sub-dial, and press the same button again to stop it.

    How is your watch powered?

    Kinetic Watch: Your kinetic watch does not use a battery. Inside the face of the watch there is a small mallet which self-winds the watch according to the movement of your hand. If you take the watch off for more than 24 hours you may have to reset the watch and wind it.

    Quartz Watch: A quartz watch is powered by a battery. The battery will need to be replaced regularly in order to keep your watch in working order.

    Japanese vs. Swiss Watches:

    The materials that are used for the casing, bracelet, and exterior features of both types of watch are the same. The only difference is in the precision of the manufacturing. Some exterior details may be closer to the original and the exterior features of the watch may be more exact on the Swiss models.
    Swiss quality watches are made with Swiss ETA movement and are actually made in Switzerland. They are identical to the original in every way. Japanese quality watches are made with Miyota movement. This mechanism can sometimes be less precise.
    It is also common on Japanese quality watches that some of the functionality is for show only. By contrast, all the functionality of the Swiss watches is fully operational. The power reserve on the Swiss watches is better so it will need to be wound less.

    Trouble Shooting:

    Your Watch Stops Working: Your automatic watch does not use a battery and winds itself using the movement of your wrist. It is normal for a watch to stop after 24-48 hours of not being worn. You will need to wind your watch and reset the time as outlined in this pamphlet. It will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again.

    Your Watch is Losing Or Gaining Time: If your Automatic watch is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period, while you are wearing it, the watch movement needs to be adjusted. All of our automatic watches feature Japanese Miyota or Swiss ETA movements with an adjustment screw just like the original. Any local jeweler can easily service these watches.

    Chronograph Doesn’t Work: Our Swiss watches have fully functional chronographs just like the originals. If one of the chronographs stops working it needs to be serviced by a professional. Servicing a chronograph involves removing the case and manually restarting or replacing the mechanism that controls it.
    Unfortunately many Japanese made watches do not have the separate mechanism necessary to operate multi-function chronographs. If you wish to have fully functional chronographs we recommend you purchase a Swiss quality watch.

    Battery Powered Watch Does Not Work

    If your watch is not fully operational when you receive it, it may be necessary to remove and replace the battery of your watch to restart it.

     

    We recommend having your watch serviced once or twice a year to ensure the mechanism continues to work.

One of the Most Recognizable Watches in History Review by hogwldfltr
Rating
It's sad how some of the reviewer try to make themselves important by lambasting what is perhaps the most recognizable watch in history. The model has been owned by presidents, kings, stars, athletes and portrayed on the wrists of both felons and aristocracy. It is a symbol of success and accomplishment. It would be nice if those who can't imagine how they could work smart enough to own one would get their heads out of what ever part of the anatomy they've stuck them and consider working for something of value instead of criticizing it.

How can you go wrong. Received as a gift and rarely wear it. Just a statement watch, but its a nice statement. Not a huge dial and can easily keep discreet in coat and tie. (Posted on 28/11/2017)

The Swatch gains about 2 seconds a month and the battery is very easy to change Review by Peter J. Lange
Rating
It is not quite as accurate as my Swatch. The Swatch gains about 2 seconds a month and the battery is very easy to change. Also the band is flexible and therefore, when my wrist has swollen a little in the late afternoon, the band still feels comfortable. I have to set the Rolex band a little loose to start with in the morning and, because the watch is so heavy, it bounces around on my wrist when I use an ax or a hammer. I find it convenient to wear a wristwatch when I am using the sextant because I can look at the time when observing the altitude of the sun. May I humbly make two suggestions: Make the watch lighter and more accurate like an electronic movement with an easily to change battery, something I can do myself and do not have to visit a watchmaker. It is also a nuisance to have to bring the watch to a watchmaker to have it cleaned every few years and then Rolex keeps it for several month to "re-calibrate" (Posted on 28/11/2017)
