WARRANTY AND REPAIR
Each watch comes with a one year warranty against manufacturing defects on the watch itself (movement, case, crystal). The warranty does not cover normal aesthetic changes that occur during typical wear and tear or aging. Please submit your warranty request through the form on our Exchanges and Returns page. Please include 'Warranty Request' in the subject line and include your order number and a detailed description of the issue at hand. All warranty claims and requests for watch repair/replacement will be completed at our discretion.
Case Waterproof up to 5 ATM: All timepieces are waterproof up to 5 ATM. This means that they can withstand splashes of water or rain. While the watchcase itself is suitable for showering or swimming in shallow water, we recommend refraining from getting the leather straps wet as this will significantly shorten the lifespan of the band.
Leather Straps: We use genuine Italian leathers for all timepieces listed. The leathers may inherently pick up markings and scuffs, and develop a natural patina and darken with everyday wear.
Battery: The watch battery can be accessed by unscrewing the 6-piece screw caseback. When it comes time to replacing the battery, please use plastic tweezers rather than metal tweezers as to not short-circuit it. You can find these singly or in multipacks in watch repair shops, some fine jewelry shops or online sites such as Ebay or Amazon. Your local watch or jewelry repair shop often provides services for easy battery replacement as well.
swapping leather straps
For screw rod models, you can swap your leather straps with a small precision screwdriver (1.0-1.5 mm). Unscrew the rods that attach the leather strap to the watch case, place your new leather strap between the case lugs and re-screw the rod in place.
Alternatively for spring bar models, you may swap the leather straps using a watch spring bar tool set. Carefully place the spring bar tool in between the case lug and leather edge. Gently compress the spring bar, allowing it to slide out from in between the watch lugs and remove the leather thereafter. Swap in the leather of your choice, sliding the spring bar into the strap hole. After placing it between the case lugs, use your spring bar tool to depress the end of the spring bar so it slides inside the watch lug, making sure both ends of the spring bar securely snap into the lug sockets once the spring is extended again.
