Dior Watches- Care Instruction
Ceramic cases and bracelets
High-tech ceramic is a scratch-proof, hypoallergenic, rust-proof material which retains its colour. In order to keep your ceramic watch and bracelet in good condition, we recommend you clean it regularly.
This should be done using a soft brush moistened with warm soapy (liquid soap) water. Then the watch should be rinsed with clean water to remove the remainder of the soap. To prolong the service life of your watch, clean it after contact with dirty water or cosmetics. Ceramic is extremely hard but is sensitive to knocks and being dropped. A violent collision with a hard surface may break it so we advise you to handle your watch with care.
Cases and metal bracelets
In order to maintain your watch and your metal bracelet in good condition and to guarantee an optimum lifespan, we recommend you clean them regularly. This should be done using a soft cloth dampened with tepid soapy water (liquid soap) to remove the deposits which accumulate on the case and between the links. Then, rinse your watch in fresh water in order to remove any remaining traces of soap and dry it with a soft dry cloth.
In case of scratching, it is possible to “freshen up” the timepiece with total or partial re-polishing. This after-sales service operation will restore the shine close to the original one but is likely to soften the angles and edges and reduce the pyramidal shape of the bracelet’s links. This operation can be carried out only 1 or 2 times maximum in the watch’s lifetime. This is not taken in charge by the guarantee. Finally, the appearance of premature scratching can be avoided if the watch is well adjusted to client’s wrist.
A noble material, leather ages and may become shiny. The lifespan of the strap depends on the how often it is worn and how often it is in contact with humidity.
Indeed, certain conditions of use accentuate the ageing process.
In order to avoid premature wear and tear, it is recommended to avoid putting your watch into contact with water or cosmetics (creams and perfumes).
Mother-of-pearl is an organic material naturally produced on the inside of seashells whose appearance can evolve over time and which is very sensitive to acids and fatty substances. Therefore, if the bezel on your timepiece is decorated with mother-of-pearl, in order for you to preserve its beautiful look and shine, we recommend you avoid any contact with cleaning or food products as well as perfumes and cosmetics. To take good care of it, we simply recommend using a soft, dry cloth or if necessary clean the mother-of pearl on the timepiece’s bezel with marseille soap, then rinse with fresh water before drying with a soft cloth. Mother-ofpearl is a fragile material that may scratch or break after a strong blow or knock. Therefore, we recommend handling your watch with precaution.
The power reserve of your watch may vary depending on the type of movement; it will be at least 38 hours.
If your watch is equipped with a mechanical self-winding movement, each time you move your wrist, it activates the oscillating weight, which allows your watch to accumulate the energy needed to ensure it works. It is important that the watch bracelet should be correctly adjusted to your wrist. A loose fitting bracelet may result in a loss of autonomy.
If the watch has not been worn sufficiently or it has stopped, it must be wound manually by turning the crown clockwise in the initial position.
It is not recommended to try winding the watch up automatically (by shaking it) as this could result in damaging the movement.
