Recommendations and servicing for Manufacture watches

Your Pequignet Manufacture watch is designed to resist the ravages of time: scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, “solid” gold or steel which can withstand repeated polishing, screw-fastened or screw-down case back. An authentic watchmaking brand holds thousands of components in stock, to ensure all possible replacement needs are met over several generations. This means that a Pequignet Manufacture watch can be sent away and restored to its former brilliance at any point in time.
A Pequignet Manufacture watch bears an engraved individual number. This traceability guarantees personalized follow-up worldwide. This engraving is made after a double inspection.
A Calibre Royal requires regular overhauls; we recommend waiting no longer than 5 years.

 

Some recommendations

Water resistance

The water resistance of a watch is prone to deteriorate with time; on the wrist, the watch is subjected on a daily basis to various attacks, according to the wearer (impacts of varying force, sweat, abrupt temperature changes, seawater, pool water, etc.)

These factors influence the ageing of the water resistance gaskets. That is why you need to have the water resistance of your watch checked on a regular basis by an approved Pequignet dealer.

NB:

– always screw in the crown or press it back in against the case to prevent water from penetrating into the mechanism.

-do not use the chronograph push-pieces or winding stem underwater.

-after immersion in seawater or a swimming pool, rinse your timepiece in lukewarm water and dry it with a soft cloth.

 

Magnetic fields

Our environment is subject to interference from electromagnetic sources. This interference may have a direct impact on the operation of both self-winding and quartz watches.

Your watch is affected by powerful magnetic fields. In certain cases, the interference may magnetise certain steel parts in the movement, such as the self-winding system oscillating weight ball bearing, and more particularly the balance-spring.

The balance-spring loops may stick together, and the watch could rapidly gain/lose rate, or even stop.

 

PVD coating

PVD coating is a hardened surface coating, but can be prematurely worn through impacts or regular friction. The guarantee may not come into play.

 

Power reserve

Regularly wearing your timepiece will maintain the power reserve. If the watch has not been worn and it has stopped, we recommend winding it manually using the crown, as you need to be aware that shaking your timepiece will not be sufficient to wind it to ensure that it runs correctly at its optimum rate. The watch display would lose a lot of time, and very quickly stop. Despite the fine crafting and technological reliability of your timepiece, you need to be aware that the precision of a mechanical watch (unlike quartz models) varies between plus or minus 10 seconds per day.

 

Day-to-day care instructions for leather or other animal skin straps

– Avoid contact with water or any other liquid

– Avoid direct contact with cosmetics, perfumes, make-up, detergents, solvents or other special industrial leather cleaners.

– Exposure to strong lighting or sunlight may cause discolouration.

 

Temperature

Avoid exposing the watch to extreme temperatures, as well as abrupt temperature changes.

 

Only ever entrust your Pequignet Manufacture piece to one of the brand’s officially recognised agents.

 


 

Recommendations and servicing for Moorea watches

In order to last, your timepiece or jewel must receive special care, and requires constant servicing. So we recommend you observe the advice below.

Magnetic fields

Our environment is subject to interference from electromagnetic sources. This interference may have a direct impact on the operation of both selfwinding and quartz watches.
A quartz watch may be disrupted when it enters a strong magnetic field; though it will return to normal operation when it leaves the field. So this interference will last while your watch is inside a magnetic field (e.g. from a speaker, computer, mobile phone, etc.).

A self-winding watch is also affected by powerful magnetic fields. In certain cases, the interference may magnetise certain steel parts in the movement, such as the self-winding system oscillating weight ball bearing, and more particularly the balance-spring. The balance-spring loops may stick together, and the watch could rapidly gain/lose rate, or even stop.

 

PVD coating

PVD coating is a hardened surface coating, but can be prematurely worn through impacts or regular friction.
The guarantee may not come into play

 

“Prohibited” zone for manual date change on self-winding watches

We advise not changing the date manually between 21:00 and 03:00, to prevent any damage to the mechanism.

 

Power reserve for self-winding watches

Regularly wearing your timepiece will maintain the power reserve. If the watch has not been worn and it has stopped, we recommend winding it manually using the crown around twenty turns clockwise in order to guarantee its optimum rate, as you need to be aware that shaking your timepiece will not be sufficient to wind it to ensure that it runs at its correct rate. The watch display would lose a lot of time, and very quickly stop.

Avoid direct contact with cosmetics, perfumes, make-up, detergents, solvents or other special industrial leather cleaners. (applies also to rubber straps).
