Thanks for your purchase!
Congratulations on becoming the proud owner of a MANIME automatic watch! This manual is designed to guide you in comprehending the optimal usage and maintenance of your timepiece. We kindly request that you read these guidelines attentively.
3 GOLDEN RULES TO FOLLOW:
- To start your watch, unscrew the crown until it “pops” out, and wind it clockwise 15-20 times. Screw the crown back.
- Don't change the date on your watch between 9:00 and 3:00 positions.
- Before going into water, make sure the crown is fully screwed in.
How to set the time, the date and manually wind the movement
The crown of your watch is referred to as the 'screw-down crown,' and it should always be securely tightened. To wind the movement, set the time and date, you need to unscrew the crown.
Once you've made the necessary adjustments, ensure that the crown is securely pushed back into position 'A.' The watch's water resistance is only guaranteed when the crown is in this correct position.
The watch's mechanism features an oscillating rotor that winds the mainspring through the motion of your wrist. This mainspring will then power the watch for approximately 42 hours. For wearers who are moderately active, the watch can fully wind within 4-8 hours. Additionally, the watch includes a manual winding feature. If your watch has completely stopped, we recommend manually winding the mainspring. Follow these steps:
- Position A : Neutral - Screwdown Position
- Position B : Manual Winding
- Position C : Set the Date
- Position D : Set the Time
For Manual Winding (Strat the watch) :
1. Unscrew the crown until it "pops" out to position B.
2. Turn the crown clockwise 15 to 20 times to wind up the mainspring.
3. Screw back the crown completely.
If it is your daily wear watch it should already be fully wound. Only wind the watch, if it stops after its power reserve has run out.
For Setting the Date :
DO NOT CHANGE THE DATE ON YOUR WATCH BETWEEN 9:00 AND 3:00 POSITIONS.
- Unscrew the crown until it "pops" out to position B.
- Pull the crown in position C
- Turn the crown clockwise to set the date.
- Push the crown in position B.
- Push & Screw back the crown completely.
For Setting the time :
1. Unscrew the crown until it "pops" out to position B.
2. Push the crown to position C.
3. Turn the crown clockwise to set the date.
4. Push the crown in position B.
5. Push & Screw back the crown completely.
How to adjust the bracelet?
We've shipped the bracelet to you at its maximum size.
You can achieve the perfect fit by making use of the 1.3mm screwdriver provided in the package. To maintain a balanced appearance, we suggest removing an equal number of links from each side.
However, please be mindful of those small screws – they have a tendency to go missing!
Precautions and preventative measures
• TEMPERATURE & SHOCKS
Extreme variation of temperature and shocks may cause damage to your watch and its mechanism. It is important not to expose your watch to sudden temperature changes (exposure to sunlight followed by immersion in cold water) or extreme temperatures [over 60°C (140°F) or below 0°C (32°F).
While your watch is waterproof (20ATM), it is not recommended to wearing it during showering or washing dishes, it can result in a sudden change of temperature.
• MAGNETIC FIELDS
Do not expose your watch to intense magnetic fields such as loudspeakers, portable telephones, computers or refrigerators and other electromagnetic appliances.
If your watch has suddenly started running inaccurately, it's likely due to magnetization. However, there's no need to worry, as a professional watchmaker can demagnetize it for you. If you prefer to address a magnetized watch on your own, you can easily purchase a watch degausser.
• HARMFUL PRODUCTS
We recommend to avoid direct contact with perfumes, detergents, solvents, and cosmetic products etc.,
It may damage the straps, the case and/or the joints.
We suggest to clean the case and bracelet regularly using a soft cloth to prevent any corrosion caused by perspiration. All water-resistant watches can be cleaned with a toothbrush and soapy water, and then dried with a soft cloth.
If you’re going into salt-water, please remember to rinse your watch off with fresh water to avoid corrosion - make sure the crown is fully screwed down before any contact with the water.
• WATER RESISTANCE
Water resistance of watches is rated based on laboratory pressure tests comparable to a swimmer or diver sitting still at that pressure level. However, many water-based activities involve a lot of movement and other environmental changes. These exceptions to how the watch was rated may challenge or defeat the water protection features of a water-resistant watch.
Your watch is 20 ATM/ 200m 660ft, when the crown is closed is will resist to water splashes, swimming, and water sports.
Let us reiterate: Get your crown screwed down properly before even thinking about getting in the water.
The water resistance of a watch cannot permanently be guaranteed. It may be affected by ageing of gaskets or by accidental shock to the crown.
Also, never activate the time-setting crown and/or the pushers while the watch is under water and make sure that the crown has been pushed down tightly after every operation.
And, do not under any circumstances open the watch yourself.
