The wearer of any mechanic watch takes advantage in an automatic winding. In terms of comfort, the constant manual winding is no longer required but rendered rather randomly by the wearer’s natural moving. Moreover a mainspring’s ever consistent power achieves the most accurate and permanent precision.
The date display adds to a watch’s calendar complication. Beside the time it indicates the current day or date even in different ways: either by hands from the dial center, subdials or supplemental rotating disks within a dial window. Firstly found in the 16th century the date display has been applied to ancient astronomic watches, followed by clocks and finally as late as in 1940/50 fitted to pocket and wristwatches.
Regular revision according to manufacturer’s instructions ensures perfect function. This includes cleaning as well as greasing of the watch. Revisions should be conducted every two to five years. The exact intervals depend on different factors. The water resistance of watches refers to an inspection pressure for a certain amount of time. Watches of an inspection pressure of 10 bar (DIN-Norm 8310) are suitable for swimming. Water resistance should be tested once a year. Case and bracelets may be wiped with a dry, soft cloth or soft brush. After water use, rinse watch under tap water and avoid contact to all kinds of chemicals. In case of leather straps water contact should be completely avoided.
