Precautions to take with your watch made from an Aston Martin DB5

Congratulations on your purchase of a watch from the DB5 collection, an exceptional timepiece that deserves your full attention. In this article, we will provide you with valuable advice on the precautions you need to take to ensure the longevity and optimum performance of your watch made from an Aston Martin DB5 bonnet.

Protecting your watch from knocks

One of the first precautions you should take is to protect your watch from shocks and impacts. Although watches are generally robust, repeated shocks can damage the internal mechanism, compromising the accuracy and durability of your Aston Martin DB5 inspired watch.

Put your watch away when you're not wearing it

When you are not wearing your watch, it is advisable to store it in a safe place, away from dust, humidity and extreme temperature variations. A quality watch box can provide adequate protection while showcasing your precious timepiece.

Avoid prolonged contact with water 

Although the Atelier Jalaper watches in the DB5 collection are designed to be water-resistant, it is best to avoid prolonged contact with water, especially if you are unsure of its water-resistance. Activities such as swimming or scuba diving should be avoided without first assessing the water resistance of your watch.

Read the instructions for use supplied with your watch carefully.

Each watch in the DB5 collection is accompanied by a detailed user manual providing specific instructions on its operation, maintenance and unique features.

It is essential to read these instructions carefully to avoid using your watch incorrectly. To help you, here are two guides to the general operation and handling of your new watch.

Remove your watch before reassembly

Your watch made from an Aston Martin DB5 has a self-winding mechanical movement, so be sure to remove it from your wrist before winding if you wish to wind it manually. This will prevent excessive stress on the winding mechanism, preserving the longevity and precision of your watch.
