Please do not wear your watch when you go swimming or even when taking a shower. This is to prevent accidental moisture or water seeping in. We cannot guarantee the watch if your accidental usage results in water or moisture getting into the watch.
Q1. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING I NEED TO DO UPON RECEIVING THE WATCH? A1. Upon receiving the watch, First, Please use the screwdriver to tight all the screws on your watch band.
Q2. MY WATCH IS AUTOMATIC, WHY MY WATCH IS NOT WORKING WHEN I RECEIVE IT?
A2. If it is an automatic watch, then please wind it. It is likely that the watch runs out of energy during the journey. Wind the watch by turning the crown for about 30 - 40 full turns clockwise. If you know your watch is battery, there is no need to wind it. If your watch has a screw-tight crown, release it by turning it anti-clockwise until it is loose. Then you can wind it for 30 – 40 times clockwise as mentioned. Once it is done, Turn the crown clockwise and screw it tight back at the same time. By doing a manual winding of the watch, your watch will have 24-36 hours power reserve. The best way is wind the watch every night before you go to bed. So it will keep time all the time.
Q3. HOW DO I SET THE TIME?
A3. To set time, you need to unscrew crown anti-clockwise direction if you have a screw-in crown watch. You need to softly and slowly pull the crown out a little bit. The best way to do this is to use first and second finger and use finger knuckle as a lever in order to pull the crown out with as little force as possible. You can feel a little "click"! Now you can set the time by turning it anti-clockwise . This would turn the minute-hour hands forward until you set the right time. When time is set, push the button back and screw the crown clockwise for a few rounds to ensure it is screwed back tight.
Q4.HOW DO I SET THE DATE?
A4. To change date and time you need to do the following. If you have a screw-in crown like a Rolex, you need to turn the crown anti-clockwise for a few rounds until the crown is loose. Then you need to pull the crown out softly by using your thumb’s nail and first finger’s nail. Please do this softly to avoid breaking the stem. You should feel a "click" here. There are two steps when you pull the crown out. The first step is for setting the date (and Day if you have a Rolex Day-Date). The second step is for setting the local time (see Q2 and A2 for details). You can only set Date forward by turning the crown in one direction. When you are done with setting date and time, push back the crown and wind it clockwise for a few times to lock it.
Q5. WHY MY CHRONOGRAPH SECOND HAND IS NOT MOVING AFTER I WOUND IT?
A5.Chronograph watches have 3 buttons on the right side, and always have a stop watch function. When you do not use it, the big second hand normally stat at 12 o'clock not move. If you would like to make the big second hand run, please push the button at 2 o'clock, the second hand will start to run.
Q6. I HAVE A ROLEX DAYTONA WITH VALJOUX 7750B1 MOVEMENT WITH FUNCTIONAL CHRONOS, HOW DO I USE THE STOPWATCH FUNCTION?
A6. The Daytona has chronograph buttons, which has a protective-screw lock for protection. This is a unique feature for Rolex Daytona. When you need to push the button, you need to un-wind the protective-screw to the level of the inside button, then you can push the button and press the button. Be sure to push it all the way and fully release it when pushing. Pushing halfway may cause it to stop half way and cause mechanical problems.
Q7. HOW DO I ADJUST THE WATCH BAND SIZE
A7. There are 2 kinds of watchbands. One with screw links. Another kind with pins.
For the screw links, you need to use screw driver to unscrew two pins on any two consecutive links found on either side of your clasp, remove the link once it is completely detached from your bracelet. Slide all the remaining links together to align their pin holes. You should come up with one extra link and an extra pin. Save both in a safe place in case you need them in the future,

For the pin links, you need to use pin remover to push the pin out. Here is the video to show you how to adjust a pin watch band, https://youtu.be/nWs2Jy1ObtQ
Q8.MY WATCH BAND HAS A STRIPPED LINK AND CAN NOT HOLD THE SCREW?
A8. We have a trick for you that you can make the screw hold good in the hole. Please take the screw out and put some finger nail polisher on it, then screw it in. The screw will be hold when dry. You can also take it off later if you need. Better than glue.
Q9. My Rolex watch clasp is loose ( or too tight), How to make it tight ( or loose) ?

Q10. HOW DO I USE THE STOPWATCH FUNCTION ON VALJOUX 7750B1 MOVEMENT TO AVOID DAMAGE TO IT?
A10. To avoid damaging the delicate mechanisms of the Valjoux 7750b1 movement you need to follow the instructions listed below to take care of it:
If your Valjoux 7750b1 has DATE function, DO NOT ADJUST the date when your time is between 10:00 to 3:00. It will damage the internal gears unknowingly if you do that. The BEST WAY is to manually adjust the time to 6:00 and then adjust the DATE after that.
If you are using the chronograph functions of the Valjoux 7750b1, always make sure that to start the stopwatch, you depress the pusher button on top and also to STOP the stopwatch, depress the same pusher button.
Q11. IMPORTANT HERE!!! Should I leave the stopwatch running or ?
NOT RECOMMEND! bad for the movt, increased wear. Why expose your watch to unnecessary, excessive wear? Also, the PR (power reserve) WILL drop by having the chronograph running all the time
REMEMBER: START & STOP is TOP Pusher Button
ONLY after you STOP the stopwatch, then you depress the lower pusher button to RESET the stopwatch function. DO NOT DEPRESS the lower pusher button when the stopwatch function is running. ONLY Depress the lower pusher button after you STOP the chronograph.
For the stop watch function, you can adjust it easy by yourself. Pull out the stem to the position that you can set the time, then push the button at 2 o'clock position, the second will move step by step. Push the button until the second hand stop at 12 o'clock. then push the stem in. This is how you can adjust the second hand to reset to 12. Easy adjustable.

*Please read them before u play with your watch that has above movement
Q13. How do you set date on 7750 or any movementt with date chrono/ automatic?
Do not activate the chrono until you have done all these steps as mentioned
When you receive your piece, please remember to handwind the piece for about maybe 50 rounds, so to generate enough power reserve. Then you shake the piece like a "mad cow" for 3-4 minutes to generate more power reserve (If necessary)
Then pull the crown out to adjust the hour hand manually to determine when is am/pm. See the date change - then you will know when is am/ pm. Make sure you know when is am/ pm before you proceed
Make sure you do not adjust the date between 10pm-3am ever!!! Do not ask me why because it just works this way. if you adjust between 10pm-3am, the date will jam or go half way.
After u have confirmed the am/ pm…..u can adjust the crown to get to the desired date you want.
As for the timer hand to reset back to zero, it is pure luck….u may have perfect reset, or less than perfect reset. My Genuine Rolex Daytona did not reset back to zero after 3 months. By the way, make sure everytime you activate chrono, you have enough power reserve. Have fun!!!
That's because of all numbers between 1 and 31, 28 uses up most of the space available for for the date, so it looks better under the magnified image.
You need at least one 8 which obviously cannot be the first digit, and of the 1 and 2 which can be the only first digits, 2 again occupies the most space.
So Rolex show up the date which would give the most detail under the cyclops magnifier.
