TERMS, CONDITIONS, INSTRUCTIONS & WARRANTY.
Last Updated Jan 4th 2021 New Old Stock watches have a warranty for 3 months only and does not include water proof rating. Komrade only ever offers warranty to the original purchaser.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE:
An automatic dive watch or other depth rated watches should only ever be used as a back up to using a dedicated working dive computer at all times when diving!
Our automatic watches should be serviced regularly and hand wound 30 - 40 times before you dive to ensure the mainspring is fully wound on the White Pointer and the Urban Diver MK2.
INSTRUCTIONS: For Miyota 9015 movement watches
The Urban Diver, The Military Diver,
The Military Field Watch.
Winding the mainspring and adjusting the date or time is done by following the below procedure once you have unwound the crown anti-clockwise and it releases to the open position.
Once you have finished making adjustments please ensure you push the crown in and wind it clockwise back into the closed position so that it seals properly.
(1) Winding the mainspring
The automatic winding watch can be also be manually wound by turning the crown in position “A”. Wind 15～20 times clockwise until second-hand starts to move naturally.
(2) Adjusting date
Adjust the date by rotating the crown in position "B".
Note If the date is adjusted between the hours of around 8:30 PM and 2:00 AM the date may not change on the following day.
(3) Adjusting time
Rotate the crown in position “C” and adjust the standard time. Then check if it is morning or afternoon and adjust correctly
Water Resistance and General Care of your Komrade Military Diver, Urban Diver and Military Field Watch.
Our first generation of Komrade watches are rated to 300 mtr water resistance, you can extend the life of the seals in your watch by following these recommendations:
» Ensure the watch crown is always screwed shut.
» Wash your watch in cold running water if you have used it in the sea to rinse the watch off.
» Due to the hot steam environment of showers and to preserve the life of the seals we recommend that you take your watch off before showering as good water-resistant watches are designed for cold water environments.
» Always check that the crown of the watch is screwed shut before immersing in water.
» Never open the case back of the watch (this will void your warranty).
INSTRUCTIONS: For WHITE POINTER WATCHES winding and setting the time and date with THE SWISS ETA 2836/2 movement.
After an extended period of non-use, the ETA 2836/2 movement must be set in motion by winding the crown clockwise in its unscrewed position 40 - 50 times and screw the crown back down.
You should immediately wear your watch once the time and date have been set as your wrist movement will then wind your watch as you wear it.
Engaging the Day/Date function when the Hour Hand is between 8 pm - 2 am can cause serious damage to the calendar gears of the internal movement and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
Setting the Time
To set the time, unscrew the crown (1) and pull it out into position -b- and turn the Winding Crown counter-clockwise (CCW).
Keep turning the Winding Crown until the hands pass midnight and the day/date display advances.
Continue to turn the Winding Crown until you set the correct time, this will ensure the correct setting of your watch in relation to AM/PM.
The Second Hand (4) remains stationary to allow the watch to become synchronized for better accuracy.
After the time has been adjusted correctly the watch is set in motion by screwing the Winding Crown back down to its ‘normal closed position’.
Changing the Day / Date setting
Reminder, do not engage this function if the hour hand is between 8pm and 2am because this will void your warranty.
Unscrew the Winding Crown (1) out into position -a- turn the Winding Crown clockwise (CW) to change the date.
Or turn the Winding Crown counter-clockwise (CCW) to change the Day setting which can be displayed in either English or Chinese.
Ensure you screw down the Winding Crown into its normal closed position once finished.
The 2836/2 movement by ETA allows for 1 of 2 chosen languages to be displayed when displaying the day. Komrade has chosen English and Chinese rather than English/French or English/German which is often seen.
Water Resistance and General Care of your White Pointer Watch
Your Komrade White Pointer watch is rated to 1000 metres water resistance. You can extend the life of the seals in your watch by following these recommendations:
» After using your watch in the sea, wash your watch in cold running water to rinse off the salt water.
» Due to the hot steam environment of showers and to preserve the life of the seals we recommend that you take your watch off before showering as good, water-resistant watches are designed for cold water environments. We realise that this may not be practical but it will help extend the life of the seals and we wish you to be aware of this.
