Each OTC timepiece is designed and manufactured to the highest of standards. Unlike most other mechanical objects, a watch operates non-stop. In order to ensure optimal performance and longevity, please review the simple guidelines for care and precautions of your OTC timepiece.
Clean your timepiece with a soft cloth and water only. Do not submerge it. After any saltwater use, your timepiece should be rinsed clean and dried with a soft cloth. In order to maintain metal bracelets, we recommend cleaning periodically. Dip a soft brush in warm soapy water and gently rub the bracelet clean. We advise having your timepiece serviced every 18-24 months to ensure longevity and troublefree operation.
It is important to avoid the following conditions: extreme heat or cold, as well as prolonged periods of exposure to direct sunlight, exposure to wet conditions that exceed your timepieces’s water rating (see case back and chart). Never operate any of the function buttons or adjust the position of the crown when the timepiece is in contact with water. Your timepiece should not be affected by magnetic fields generated by household items such as televisions and stereos, but avoidance of other strong electric fields or static electricity is advised. It is also important to avoid extreme shock or impact.
