MAINTENANCE & TIPS
To ensure continuing pleasure and performance of your
RAYMOND WEIL timepiece
1. Keep your watch clean with a soft dry cloth.
2. Avoid contact with perfumes, spirits or petroleum products as these may damage seals, straps or case/bracelet.
3. Ensure that the crown, which is used to change the hands/date, is properly pushed in and/or screwed at all times. This prevents penetration by water or dust.
4. Avoid abrasions as scratching may eventually affect the case and bracelet.
5. If you are about to undertake heavy physical work, remove your watch.
6. If your watch has a leather strap do not wear it too tightly fastened or expose it to water, unless the strap is water resistant.
7. Avoid subjecting your watch to rapid changes in temperature.
8. When not being worn, keep your watch in a cool dry place.
1. To ensure reliable performance your watch should be serviced at least every three years.
2. Batteries should last for up to three years. If your watch needs a new battery please attend to this immediately as dead cells can harm the movement.
3. A water resistant model should have its seals checked at least every 2 years, and annually if the watch is worn whilst bathing to ensure its water resistance.
4. Your watch must be returned to an official RAYMOND WEIL agent for servicing and any other necessary repairs.
HOW WATER-RESISTANT IS MY WATCH?
The water resistance of your watch is engraved on the case back of your timepiece and expressed in ATM or meters and feet. Please note this measure does not coincide with an actual depth to which you can immerse your watch but is a correspondence to the measuring unit usually used in watchmaking: atmosphere (ATM). Here is a list of equivalence between ATMs, feet, and meters.
1-2 ATM – 10m – 33 ft
3 ATM – 30m – 100 ft
5 ATM – 50m – 165 ft
10 ATM – 100m – 330 ft
20 ATM – 200m – 660 ft
Showering, bathing, and diving are not recommended, especially if your watch has a leather strap. It is also not recommended to swim with your watch unless it has a screw down crown and/or pushers, especially at the beach and in climates with important temperature changes. Do not wear your watch when in a steam bath or sauna.
