We have put decades of watch making experience into making sure you enjoy your timepiece for just as long. That’s why we’ve put together some useful tips for getting the most out of your MeisterSinger.
Your mechanical watch operates with a small but powerful machine. Like the engine of a vehicle, it must be serviced. Just as car tyres become porous over the years, the seals of a watch must regularly be checked and, if necessary, replaced. With regular inspection, such details are expertly examined. A general service is recommended every three years.
Water is every mechanical watch’s biggest enemy. That is why MeisterSinger watch casings are made to be water resistant and will withstand the indicated pressure – either three, five or ten bar. A watch’s water tightness is not a permanent state. External factors, for example age-related porous seals, can negatively influence the water tightness.
Winding your mechanical watch
Turn the crown back and forth until you feel a slight resistance. The movement keeps time most accurately when the watch is wound once daily. If you're not such a creature of habit, your watch will still continue to run for 42 to 48 hours, depending on the model. The following reliable advice may also aid you in winding your watch: By associating the act to a regular activity, such as when you get up, at lunch, before going to bed, it quickly becomes part of your daily routine.
Winding your automatic watch
The crown lies against the casing. By moving the crown back and forth about 15 times, the watch mechanism will start working. The automatic watch will continue to recharge itself through daily movements, so theoretically you only need to wind it up once. Should the watch be left motionless for so long that it stops, simply wind the crown to get it running again.
Setting the time
The procedure is the same for single or three-hand watches, whether with a manual wind or automatic. Pull the crown out as far as it will go and turn it until the watch shows the correct time.
Setting the date on models with a calendar function
Pull the crown out to the first notch and turn it until the correct date is displayed.
