Your timepiece is warranted for three years from the date of purchase, against failures due to defective materials or workmanship, under normal use. During this three year period, we will repair such defects, free of charge (except the fee for mailing and handling), provided that the timepiece has been used and operated in accordance with the instruction in this booklet.
Unlike quartz analog watches, the 17J or 25J self-winding mechanical watches require maintenance at least once every two years, to oil and clean the mechanism. This warranty specifically excludes repairs to 17J or 25J self-winding watches which are due to failure to maintain, or due to damage resulting from shock (dropping the watch) or exposure to a strong magnetic field.
This warranty does not cover the free repair or replacement of cases, batteries, watchbands, straps, dials, crowns, clasps, or crystals, etc., since such items are subject to the wear and tear of daily use. The warranty is void if the watch has been tampered with, abused, exposed to moisture (for watches which are not marked water-resistant) or subjected to extreme conditions for which it was not designed, or if other than factory genuine parts have been used.
THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER LEGAL RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
Your watch is powered by a 1.5 volt silver oxide battery or a 3 volt lithium battery (except Auto-Quartz or Self-Winding mechanical watches). When the battery is exhausted, your watch will stop. Be sure to replace the battery immediately with a qualified jeweler or our factory service center, as a dead battery may eventually leak and damage your watch. Under no circumstances should you attempt to replace the battery yourself.
