At the airport
- To protect your watch from magnetism, we advise you to remove your watch before going through security control.
- Check that the crown is fully pushed or screwed down—depending on the model—against the case in order to preserve water-resistance.
- We recommend that you prevent leather straps from coming into contact with water to avoid deformation or discoloration.
- For frequent or prolonged use in water, we recommend a steel bracelet or rubber strap.
- After each exposure to salt water, rinse the watch carefully in fresh water, then dry it.
- To prevent any infiltration of water or dust, you should make sure that your watch has passed a water-resistance check during the last 18 months with an authorized Victorinox Swiss Army Service Center or before taking a vacation.
- In cold environments, we recommend keeping your watch on your wrist so that it remains close to body temperature. Below 0°C (32°F), the mechanism oil can lose fluidity and slow down the movement.
- Temperatures above 60°C (140°F) can have a significant effect on the mechanism and battery life.
- Intense light can age materials used in your Victorinox Swiss Army watch, such as coatings, plastics, rubber and leather. High temperatures cause discoloration and can shorten the lifespan of the leather strap. We recommend you do not exposure your watch to extreme climate conditions.
- A sudden change in temperature may cause condensation to appear under the crystal. This does not affect the watch’s functions and will soon disappear on its own. Nevertheless, it indicates a water-resistance weakness, and we recommend that you consult an authorized VSA service center.
