Care and Maintenance

Care&Maintenance

To ensure that your watch functions correctly and maintains its impeccable appearance for many years, we recommend that you bear the following points in mind.

MAGNETIC FIELDS

Avoid the magnetic fields to which we are all exposed every day (e.g. microwaves, television, loudspeakers, locking systems on handbags, etc.).

CHEMICALS

Avoid bringing your watch into direct contact with solvents, cleaning agents, perfumes and cosmetics, etc.

Products of this kind can cause a serious damage to the strap, the watch case or the gaskets.

EXTERNAL INFLUENCES

Protect your watch from impacts and exposure to intense light and sunlight.

Keep the watch in its original box if you do not use it for a moment.

COMPLETE SERVICE EVERY THREE TO FIVE YEARS

We recommend generally to carry out a complete service every three to five years.
For automatic movements. After removing the wristband and opening the case, the watchmaker carefully dismantles the movement into its individual parts and examines each component for damage and repairs or replaces it as necessary.

Once the tests and functional controls of the movement and case have been completed successfully, and the all components of the watch have been cleaned professionally, the watch is ready to be returned to the customer.

WATER RESISTANCE

The water resistance of your watch may gradually reduce as the gaskets deteriorate with age, or as a result of accidental impact damage to the crown. We therefore recommend that you have the water resistance of your watch checked once a year at an approved Boyle&Copeland approved watch centre.

CROWN AND WATER RESISTANCE

To prevent water from getting into the watch movement, always push the crown back into its neutral position on watch models without a screw-in crown. If your watch has a screw-in crown, screw the crown into place carefully to avoid damaging the screw thread. Do not press the chronograph button under water, as it cannot be completely guaranteed that water will not get into the watch movement.

METAL BRACELET AND RUBBER STRAP

Metal bracelets and rubber straps can be cleaned using a toothbrush and soapy water, and dried with a soft cloth.

LEATHER STRAP

Leather is a natural, porous material. You should therefore avoid allowing a top-quality leather strap to come into contact with oils, solvents and cleaning products or cosmetics. By doing so, you can prevent discolorations or premature ageing of the material.

In everyday use, a wristwatch is subjected to many different strains and stresses, such as vibrations, impacts, dust, water, ultra-violet radiation or fluctuations in temperature. Therefore we recommend to have a complete service carried out approximately every three to five years to allow your timepiece a long life durability.

We provide a five year warranty on all our watches.
