*** Never pull out the crown when the watch is wet.***

*** Always check that the crown is pushed in.***

The water resistancy of the watch relates to the pressure of water against it whilst static, at the depth specified. However, the faster the watch is moved against the water, the higher the pressure against it. This explains why a watch marked ‘WATER RESISTANT / 30M’ may not be resistant to the force of spray from a tap or swimming.

Watches without water resistant engravings on the caseback, should be protected from water and excessive amounts of moisture, steam and condensation to avoid damage.

We do not recommend water resistant watches to be worn while having a shower or bath. The item also should not be exposed to or left in conditions of high temperatures, condensation or steam that is usually found in environments such as a bathroom.

This is to avoid damage caused by contact with high pressure or temperature which will cause deterioration of the gaskets.

The water resistancy of the watch is not permanent, and will be affected by the deterioration, through time, of the gaskets sealing the glass, casebacks, pushers or crown.

We recommend that your STORM watch is re-sealed and tested for water resistance every year or when the case is opened for servicing to maintain continuous water resistance.

Please ask for this service, if required as this work is not standard.
