Note: The Red arrow hand is for setting the alarm.
Gently pull the upper crown out. Turn it backwards (towards yourself)
until the arrow points to your selected time, then
B.: Push the upper crown back in.
C.: Wind the upper crown upwards [away from yourself]
about 10 times to make sure the mechanism is fully wound.
The alarm is now set.
Gently pull out the lower crown about 1 millimeter.
B.: Twist the the crown backward (towards yourself), moving the hands forward
until you arrive at the correct time. Push the lower crown back in.
The time is now set.
(If it is your first time wearing the watch or if you haven't worn it
for an extended period of time, we suggest that you wind the lower
crown upwards [away from yourself] about 10 times to make sure
the crown is fully wound).
AFTER you've set the alarm to the desired time, push the crown back in.
Then, continue to wind the crown upwards gently [away from yourself]
until it can no longer be wound. Once you reach that point, do NOT wind further.
Instead, wind the upper crown backwards (towards yourself] two revolutions.
You do this so that the mechanism is not FULLY WOUND - which is not suggested
for the watch. Later, when the alarm sounds, it will sound for the maximum length
of time possible.
-- Adjust the alarm and time before winding either the upper or lower crown.
-- Never wind the crown while the alarm is sounding.
This will damage the watch mechanisem.
1. As we all know, mechanical watches do not have batteries inside.
Therefore, if you are wearing the watch for the first time OR if you
haven't worn the watch for some time and it has come to a stop, we suggest
that you wind the lower crown upwards [away from yourself] 10 times before
putting it on. This gives your watch an extra power boost while it builds
up its reserve power.
2. Allow yourself an adequate amount of time to familiarize yourself with the watch.
Some mechanical watches require that you wind up the lower stem before
putting on the watch - especially if you take it off at night.
