To ensure your SUB functions perfectly for many years to come, please follow these recommendations. Before you start wearing your SUB for the first time (or if it has stopped), you will need to wind it manually.
Magnetic fields Avoid placing your watch in the vicinity of magnetic fields. These invisible fields may originate from sources such as hard drives, medical devices, speakers, televisions and refrigerator doors. Mobile phones, tablets and laptops, as well as magnetic fasteners on handbags and purses, are also sources of magnetic fields.
Seawater Always rinse your watch in fresh water after swimming in the sea.
Shocks Avoid subjecting your watch to shocks and sustained vibrations.
Screw-down crown Always make sure you have screwed the crown down fully to prevent any moisture from getting into your watch.
Standard crown Always make sure the crown is pushed in against the casing to prevent any moisture from getting into your watch.
Temperatures Avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures (above 60°C/140°F and below 0°C/32°F) and to sudden temperature variations.
Water resistance We cannot guarantee that your watch will maintain its original water resistance over time. The seals may be affected by wear or by an accidental shock to the crown. As recommended in our service guide, have the water-resistant seals of your watch tested once a year by an authorized DOXA Service Center.
Chronograph pushers Do not adjust the pushers underwater as this may allow moisture to get into your watch.
Cleaning Use a toothbrush and soapy water to clean metal bracelets and water-resistant cases. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.Cleaning Use a toothbrush and soapy water to clean metal bracelets and water-resistant cases. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Chemical products Avoid any direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfume, cosmetics, etc. which may damage the strap, case or seals.
Do not manually set the date on automatic watches when the hour hand is between 10:00 pm and 2:00 am.The automatic date function is actively engaged during this four-hour period(the pinions are being repositioned to carryout the automatic date change), and manually setting the date will damage the self-winding movement. ALWAYS be sure that the crown is fully screwed down and in position 0 (P0 - see diagram on next page). Your watch will NOT be watertight if the crown is not completely screwed down. Please note that improper use/operationof the crown will void the warranty. If for any reason you are unable to operate the crown of your watch, please contact DOXA Customer Service without delay:
