Caring For Your Watch

 

Your Sharp Bros. Watch is a precision mechanical device, thus it requires appropriate care, both to protect your investment, and to maintain good working order.

Daily activities, as well as normal sports activities, will not affect the integrity of the watch. A violent shock, such as a drop or impact may upset the movement, and the watch’s ability to keep correct time, however.

Your watch should only be cleaned with water and a soft cloth. Refrain from allowing water to come in contact with leather. Metal bracelets should be cleaned with a soft brush or cloth, warm soapy water, rinsed clean and dried with a soft cloth.

If your watch is immersed in water on a regular basis, it should be inspected annually to verify water resistance. If wearing your watch in salt water, thoroughly rinse the case and bracelet in fresh water when finished.

The maximum water resistance depth is engraved on the case back, or can be found on the dial. Never wind or pull out the crown when the watch is wet or underwater.

The water resistance indicated is tested at a static level of pressure. Underwater activities create additional pressures on the watch, which are greater than the normal or actual depth.

Guidelines For Water Resistance

 

100 Meters / 10 ATM / 330 Feet - Suitable for swimming and snorkeling

200 Meters / 20 ATM / 660 Feet - Suitable for recreational scuba diving

300 Meters / 30 ATM / 1000 Feet - Suitable for professional diving

Avoid wearing your watch in saunas and hot tubs, as the high temperatures can affect the watch’s water resistance.

Avoid bathing or showering with your watch, as prolonged exposure to soap can reduce the watch’s water resistance, over time.
