Frequently asked questions
The average precision tolerance is between – 1 and +11 seconds per day. The accuracy of a mechanical movement varies, depending on the habits of the person wearing the watch.
A watch should be revised regularly in order to run perfectly. It is difficult to predict the timeline as it depends entirely on the climate and the care the owner takes of their watch. Usually, a revision is required every 4-5 years, depending on how often the watch is used.
Do not expose your watch to intense magnetic fields such as loud speakers, cell phones, computers, refrigerators or certain electromagnetic equipment.
Avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetic products etc., as they may damage the bracelet, the casing or the gaskets.
Regularly clean the case and the bracelet with a soft clean cloth to avoid any corrosion due to perspiration. All water resistant watches can be cleaned using a toothbrush with soapy water, then dry off with a soft clean cloth. In case of total immersion in seawater, the watch should be rinsed with fresh water and then thoroughly dried.
Using an EVILARD mechanical movement with automatic winding depends on wrist movements. When the watch is entirely wound up, it has a run-time of 48 hours. The mechanism of automatic winding is directly linked to the activity of the person wearing the watch.
If a watch has not been worn during a few days, we recommend winding it by hand by turning the crown approximately 10 times (in a clockwise direction only) in order to guarantee the best possible run-time from the outset.
The difference between these two movements is the way in which the watch is wound up. Watches with a manual winding must be wound manually every day, while the watches with automatic winding are wound because of the internal rotor which reacts according to the movements of the wrist.
