Before your vacation: To prevent any infiltration from water or dust, you should make sure that your watch has passed a water-resistance test during the last 18 months at an authorized Wenger service center.
At the airport: To protect your watch from magnetism, we advise you to remove your watch before going through security control.
Before showering / swimming etc.:
- Check that the crown is fully pushed in or locked down against the case in order to preserve water-resistance.
- To protect your leather strap from deformation or discoloration avoid contact with water.
- For frequent or prolonged use in water, we recommend a steel bracelet or rubber strap.
After each exposure to salt water, rinse the watch carefully in fresh water and then dry it.
Condensation: A sudden change in temperature may cause condensation to appear under the crystal. This does not affect the watch’s functions and will soon disappear on its own. Nevertheless, it indicates a water-resistance weakness, and we recommend that you consult an Authorized Wenger Watch service center.
- Temperatures above 60°C (140°F) can have a significant effect on the mechanism and battery life.
- High temperatures cause discoloration and can shorten the lifespan of the leather strap. We do not recommend that you expose your watch to extreme climate conditions.
- Intense light: This can age materials used in your Wenger watch, such as coatings, plastics, rubber and leather.
- In cold environments, we recommend keeping your watch on your wrist so that it remains close to body temperature.
- Below 0°C (32°F), the mechanism oil can lose fluidity and slow down the movement.
