Thank you for purchasing an Alfex watch
Here are all our manuals:
All Alfex timepieces are designed with a minimum water resistance rating of 3atm.
the water-resistance of a timepiece protects the movement from dust, moisture,
and risk of damage to the movement should it be immersed in water.
please see the chart for guidelines for recommended exposure of various water ratings.
it is important not to attempt to adjust the position of the crown while the timepiece
is in contact with water. water can enter the case causing damage to the movement.
wear and care of watches
protect your watch against shocks, magnetic fields, strong heat, water and chemicals
and against mechanical abrasion.
water-resistance according to DIN is a design feature which may be impaired by shock temperature fluctuations, grease and acids (check our instructions for water resistance).
make sure that the crown is always pushed in firmly when you wear the watch.
|water-resistant characteristics||light spray perspiration, light rain, etc||bathing, etc.||swimming||skin diving (diving without oxygen cylinder)|
|5 atm||ok||ok,but not guaranteed to be resistant to jumping into the pool||no||no|
|10 atm||ok||ok,but not guaranteed to be resistant to jumping into the pool||ok||no|
end of battery life (eol)
If the second hand begins to jump in 4 second steps, this indicates that the battery will soon be flat.
In that case, it should be changed within around 1 week.
Please have the batteries changed by a specialized watchmaker and ask him to check
the gaskets at the same time.
