Insert the DAYE / TURNER spring bar tool carefully (scratches!) between the leather strap and the spring bar holder on the case. Push the spring bar away from the watch case. Reinsert the spring bars without the strap and thread the
nylon strap as shown below. In case the nylon strap does not fit through, remove the spring bars, hold the nylon strap to the watch and replace the spring bars with the strap between watch case and spring bar.
For a maximum life span of you DAYE / TURNER protect your watch from shocks, high temperature, magnetic fields and chemicals. Take off your watch at night.
In case the watch stops, please have the battery replaced by a certified dealer. Your DAYE / TURNER operates on a single battery for approximately 3 years, depending on the manufacturer.
Have the water resistance checked when replacing the battery.
SEIRIOS (CANIS MAJOR)
Why should the date not be adjusted between 21:00 and 04:00 h?
The mechanics of the movement switch the date during this period. If this process is intervened, the gears may jump out of position, resulting in the hands displaying in the wrong position, for instance between two weekdays.
What does waterproof mean?
Waterresistance of most watches is declared in ATM. ATM stands for atmospheres. If a watch is waterproof up to 3 ATM, it has been exposed to the pressure of 3 atmospheres under testing conditions. This corresponds to the pressure of a 3 m water column. However the slightest movements cause pressure peaks that exceed the testing pressure by far. This may be caused by water from a tap hitting the watch with far higher pressure. Or submerging a watch into the water, which causes higher pressure than occurs when the watch is only lying in the water.
Therefore 3 ATM is merely protecting against rain and slight water spalshes. 10 ATM are suitable for swimming, but not for diving.
How do I change the battery in my watch?
Changing the battery should always be performed by a specialized dealer. On the one hand, loosening the case back can hardly be done without appropriate tools, on the other hand the watch can't be sealed to regain it's full waterresistance.
It is crucial that the waterresistnce is controlled after each battery change. Only then the assigned waterresistance is restored.
