Instructions for using watches

General features of the products - way of operation and setting.
Automatic clocks are kept in working order by moving a semicircular rotor mounted on the back of the mechanism, its rotation being determined by natural movements of the wrist of the wearer. After being removed from the hand, the clock should operate for about 2 days (depending on the caliber of the mechanism). If the mechanism stops, it is recommended to manually load it by turning the reamer clockwise (from left to right) until it has a slight resistance. Some models of automatic mechanisms do not allow reloading from the reamer; in their case, keep the clock in the horizontal position, with the dial up and make some circular movements - they will move the rotor, which in turn will load the clock.

Mechanical clocks are kept in working order by turning the reamer until it has a slight resistance when it is in the normal position, glued to the casing. It is recommended that the clock returns regularly, once a day.

The accuracy of the mechanical and automatic clock is ± 10/30 seconds per day.

Quartz watches are powered by a battery, and their very good accuracy - averaged ± 15/20 seconds per month - is ensured by the quartz oscillator, the integrated circuit and the stepper motor, its three main components. If the clock battery is consumed, it is recommended that it be replaced as soon as possible to avoid leakage and, consequently, failure of the mechanism. This operation must only be performed in an authorized service center. Some quartz watches are equipped with the E.O.L. (end-of-life) that warns the wearer that the battery is about to be exhausted. When activating this function, the secondary begins to move at intervals of 2 seconds (or more, depending on the mechanism model), thus announcing that the clock will only function for a short period of time and at the same time saving from the remaining energy . When the secondary moves at intervals of 2 seconds, time counting is still correctly within the integrated circuit, the indicators on the dial displaying the time accordingly.

The energy required for clocks with a kinetic mechanism to operate is generated by a rotor, just as with the automatic mechanism. The difference would be that the kinetic energy generated by the rotor is transformed into electrical energy and then stored in a rechargeable battery. The kinetic mechanism combines automatic clock technology with that of the quartz clock, giving it a mechanical power clock, but with the accuracy of a quartz watch. The energy reserve of a kinetic clock can reach a few months, even up to a few years.

Before making any settings using the remover, check if the watch is equipped with a standard or inflatable reamer. The check is made as follows: in the position where the reamer is attached to the housing, turn it counterclockwise. If the reamer does not move away from the casing after rotation, it means that it is a standard reamer. Drag it gently to the outer positions to make the necessary settings. If you turn the counterclockwise counterclockwise, notice that it rolls off, continue until it is completely unfastened. The entire operation must be done with extreme caution and without force or abrupt resonator. When the reamer has been completely disengaged, pull it out into the outer position to make the necessary settings. In the case of an inflatable remontator, it is crucial that after making the settings, it should be completely inflated until it is glued to the casing. Otherwise, there is a risk of compromising the water resistance of the watch.

Setting the clock for the two-position bracket:

1: operating position (closest to the housing)
2: position for setting the time (extreme position - furthest from the housing)

The time setting is as follows:
- Carefully pull the reamer in the extreme position (2);
rotate the remover in the clockwise direction until the indicators (clock and minute) indicate the desired time;
- press the reamer back into position (1).

Setting the clock for the three-position bracket:

1: operating position (closest to the housing)
2: the position for setting the date (and day of the week - depending on model) (intermediate position)
3: position for setting the time (the extreme position - the furthest from the casing)

The time setting is as follows:
- Carefully pull the reamer into the extreme position (3);
- rotate the remover in the clockwise direction until the indicators (clock and minute) indicate the desired time;
- press the reamer back into position (1).

Setting the date is as follows:
- Carefully pull the reamer into the intermediate position (2);
- rotate the reamer in the correct direction until the desired date is displayed;
- press the reamer back into position (1).
Please note: it is not recommended to change the date between 20:00 p.m. and 04:00 a.m., as it is possible that the date is not set correctly the next day and may also damage the mechanism.

* For clock models displaying both date and day, the date setting is done by rotating the reamer (pulled in position 2) clockwise, and setting the day is done by rotating the reamer counterclockwise.

Watches with chronograph function

These types of clocks can be easily recognized after the three counters (subclasses) that we find time measurement units *. This unit differs according to the caliber of the machine - it can be hours, minutes, seconds, tenths of a second, hundreds of seconds, etc.

The mode of operation is as follows:
Button A: Starts the chronograph
Button A: stops the chronograph
Button B: Resets the chronograph

Note: chronograph operation is only possible when the reamer is in position 1 (glued to the casing).
* Not to be confused with multifunctional clocks, which also have three counters, but can not measure the user's time intervals, but only display items such as the day of the week, 24-hour time, date, moon phases, and so on
