EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LIV WATCH
Your watch should last a lifetime and beyond with proper care. Here are some tips for you to help preserve the aesthetics and the mechanism of your LIV Watch.
1. KEEP YOUR WATCH RUNNING
2. KNOW YOUR WATCH'S ENEMIES
Exposing your watch to chemicals like soap, detergents, cosmetics and perfumes can damage your watch case or strap. Wait until creams or perfume dry completely on your skin before wearing your watch. Also prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading on the watch, so avoid lengthy contact with sunshine.
WATER & MOISTURE
A watch’s water resistance cannot be permanently guaranteed. It may be affected by the ageing of gaskets or by an accidental shock to one of the components assuring the water resistance such as crown, pushers and crystal. Make sure to have your watch checked every two years by the LIV service center if you regularly expose it to water. Please follow our recommendations when using your watch in water: always make sure that the crown is safely closed, do not swim with a leather strap, rinse the watch with clear water after salt water exposure, do not press the pushers under water, and avoid taking showers with your watch (thermal shocks, soaps, steam and pressured water are not recommended).
Magnetism can cause the spirals of the hairspring of your watch to magnetize together, shortening the spring, thus causing inaccuracy of time measurement. We recommend to not keep your watch close to any magnets (television, speakers, tablets, etc.) to prevent magnetism interference.
3. KEEP MAINTAINING YOUR WATCH
TIPS FOR BETTER USE
SCREW DOWN CROWN
On some models, a screw-down crown still ensures more tightness thanks to an additional seal, which becomes water resistant when the crown is screwed in completely. In order to ensure a perfect seal, it is important to screw the crown back in properly after using it.
The rotating bezel feature on your diver's watch enables the diver to measure elapsed time during the dive by aligning the 12 o'clock marker on the bezel with the minute hand. Make sure your bezel is always cleaned and rotated frequently after each dive to ensure its durability.
The watch buckles allows a two-step closure of the bracelet: unlike a simple pin buckle, if a folding clasp would open, the watch would remain in suspension. Cleaning is necessary like the rest of the watch, however no specific maintenance is required for this component.
