Your Paulin watch is water resistant up to 5ATM which means it is resistant to everyday use and light rain. We do not advise that you wear the watch when showering, bathing, swimming, diving or during any activity where it is exposed directly to water. Additionally, our leather watch straps should avoid any contact with water as this can damage the leather.
As leather is porous, longevity can vary from person to person. The leather will absorb oils and will develop a natural patina which gives the strap its character. The lifespan of your strap can be extended by avoiding coming into contact with water, moisture, oils, perfumes or cosmetics as this will significantly deteriorate the lifespan of the item. Avoid over-exposure to extreme heat or direct sunlight.
Our leather straps are made using full grain bridle, Italian, suede, cordovan or stingray leather. Some scratches and marks will be visible on the leather as a result of the leather being a natural substance. This is normal and not to be seen as a defect. Over time your strap will develop a natural patina but it will from time to time need to be cleaned.
First of all, with a dry cloth wipe off any dirt or debris from your strap. Then with a very small amount of mild soap and water, gently rub your strap in small circular buffing motions. You do not want the strap to become damp as this can do more harm than good to the leather, so use only a small amount of water. Make sure you have removed all the soap residue from your strap, then leave it to air-dry, avoiding direct sunlight. Then you can use a leather balm to recondition your leather once it has been cleaned.
Your strap is secured with a spring-bar or in some of our original Commuters it might be attached using a bar and screw. Both are easy to change. To change the strap you can either take it into one of our shops which you can find here or visit any other reputable watch-shop or jeweller and it is normally something they can change whilst you wait. Or alternatively you can purchase one of our toolkits, so you can change your strap from the comfort of your own home.
To change the time on a Paulin watch pull the crown out all the way, then turn it clockwise till the hands are in the desired position then, you can push the crown back in and the seconds hand should resume ticking.
To change the date on our Chronograph watches pull the crown out halfway then turn clockwise. The date window goes up to 31 days, so every second month you will have to adjust accordingly.
The battery in your Paulin watch should last approximately 2 years. When you do need a replacement battery for your watch you can visit us at one of our stores which you can find here. Or you can visit any reputable jeweller or watch shop.
