Before continuing please ensure your watch is one of our genuine Swiss Military watches by checking the authenticity on our website: www.swiss-military.com
Like all high-precision instruments a watch, too, needs to be serviced regularly. The service intervals depend on the model, the climate and the wear and tear the watch is exposed to. Do avoid contact with any chemical products or strong magnetic fields
We suggest to service the mechanical movement every two years. Do bear in mind all our mechanical timepieces come with a lifelong warranty provided you have the watch serviced every two years. To this end do please send the watch directly to us by registered mail. The service costs CHF 450.- and covers cleaning of the watch, cleaning of the movement, readjustment of the movement etc.
We suggest you regularly clean the case and the metal bracelet with a damp, soft brush and thoroughly dry the watch afterwards
Regular maintenance involves rinsing with fresh water the watch and the bracelet after swimming or diving in salt water. Once a year the water resistance of your timepiece should be checked by an authorised watchmaker and the gaskets might have to be replaced if deemed necessary
