Complication watches

The movement of a complication watch is delicate since it contains a larger number of components.

These guidelines will allow you to preserve the precision, regularity, and authenticity of your complication watch:

  • Keep your watch away from all sources of magnetism.
  • Never set your watch to the right time when the striking mechanism or perpetual calendar are in operation.
  • When setting the time and date on your watch, respect the time and date adjustment periods specific to its movement.
  • Do not force the crown when you feel that the spring is tense at the end of the winding process.
  • Do not use the push-pieces, bolts and correctors of chronograph and minute-repeater watches when under water.
  • To avoid subjecting the movement to vibrations or temperature differences that might damage it, do not wear your watch when playing sports.
  • When you are not wearing your watch, wind its movement for approximately a dozen turns of the crown to prevent the oils it contains from drying out. Complicated watches with automatic movements may be kept in a watch winder.
