WATCH SPECIFICATIONS AND SERVICING
What is the warranty on an ERROYL watch?
Your ERROYL watch is available with a two (2) year manufacturer’s warranty. Each watch includes a warranty card providing details of what is covered under the warranty. Further details can also be found by referring to the warranty page on the ERROYL website.
After you have purchased your watch, ERROYL recommend you validate your warranty by completing details of your purchase on the register your timepiece page.
What is the accuracy of my ERROYL watch?
The accuracy of your ERROYL watch can depend on the movement used and your habits. Automatic watches can react more sensitively to temperature fluctuations and climatic variations; as such, an automatic watch does not run as precisely as a quartz watch. The average precision tolerance is between -10/+40 seconds per day though it is often much more accurate.
What is an automatic watch?
All ERROYL watches are automatic. An automatic self-winding watch is powered by kinetic energy created by your movement, not by a battery in the case of a quartz watch. An automatic watch, once fully wound, will usually run for approximately 40 hours or so without activity.
What is the difference between a manual and self-winding (automatic) watch?
A manual wound movement must be wound by hand regularly, while a self-winding (automatic) watch is wound by the kinetic energy created by the movement of the wearer. An automatic watch can also be manually wound.
What is a triple date complication?
A triple date complication is a watch that displays the day, date and month. In the case of the Regent Collection, the day and month are displayed via a sub dial and the date via a window at the six o'clock marker.
What is a chronograph?
A chronograph is a watch with stopwatch functionality. This additional mechanism is used to measure and record time. By clicking on the push buttons, the hand of the chronograph (seconds, minutes and hours) you can start, stop or reset it. A chronograph can often have additional functions that can differ from one chronograph to another, e.g. tachymeter, pulsometer etc.
How frequently should I service my ERROYL watch?
Your ERROYL watch is a precision instrument, as such this should be serviced to ensure it continues to work perfectly. It is difficult to indicate the interval for servicing as it can vary depending upon the movement, climate and the amount of use of your watch. As a general rule we consider it good to have your watch serviced approximately every 4 years although this can also be dependent upon the frequency of use.
What is the lifetime of my leather strap?
The lifetime of your leather strap is typically anywhere from 6 to 18 months, though this can vary depending on usage and natural wear and tear. Please note that leather straps are more acutely affected by climatic conditions, daily exposure to sweat as well as bacteria and dirt. As such it is wise to take hygienic issues into consideration when considering the timing of replacing your leather strap, as such we recommend you change your strap at least every 12-18 months.
How do watches define water resistance?
The water resistance rating of an ERROYL watch provides general guidance only on the types of activities and exposure to water that your watch is able to endure. As a general rule, temperature fluctuations, exposure to solvents, dust and shock can affect how your watch copes with exposure to water. Also, over time, the water resistance rating of your watch may diminish. This is because the seals that protect your watch can be affected by wear and tear and age.
As such, we suggest that before engaging in activities that could expose your watch to stress, e.g. swimming, surfing, diving etc that you consider if your watch is suitable for the conditions first.
Please note that while your watch may be suitable for water activities your strap may not be suitable. As a rule, your watch should not be operated under water. Before exposing your watch to water you should ensure that all moving parts, e.g. crown are in the rest position (screwed in firmly). At the end of any water related activities, e.g. diving, swimming etc your watch should be rinsed with fresh water and dried properly.
Where you intend to utilise your watch for water activities such as snorkelling, diving or surfing we suggest you consider testing the water resistance regularly.
Our minimum water resistance recommendations are as follows:
- splashing 3ATM (30 meters)
- water surface activities 5ATM (50 meters)
- swimming/snorkelling 10ATM (100 meters)
- diving 20ATM+ (200+ meters)
