SETTING THE TIME & DATE
Rotate the crown in an anti-clockwise direction to unscrew the crown from the watch case. the crown is now in position # 2.
Gently pull the crown to position # 3, and rotate the crown in an anti-clockwise direction to set the desired date.
Gently pull the crown to position # 4 and rotate the crown in a clock-wise direction to set the desired time.
Push the crown back to position # 2, then push and screw the crown in a clock-wise direction so that the crown screws into the case into position # 1. This ensures the watch is then water resistant.
Avoid changing the date between 8pm – 4am as the date wheel is already starting to advance to the next date. Forcing a date change during this time can cause permanent damage to the movement. To make a date change during this time please move the time outside of 8pm-4am, then change the date and finally set the time.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I wear my watch whilst swimming?
Refer to the below chart to determine the water resistance capabilities of your watch. All PANZERA watches have the water resistance level engraved on the back of the watch.
How do I know whether my watch is in the AM or PM cycle?
To ensure your watch is set to AM/PM; set the dateusing the rapid change function, to one day before the current date. Then adjust the time forwards until the date changes to thecurrent date. You are now in the AM cycle. Continue to move the time forwards to the desired time.
Can I wear my watch whilst playing sports?

Can I wear my watch in the shower?
No, as a general rule it is advisable to avoid wearing your watch in the shower.

It will also reduce the longevity and general effectiveness of the rubber watch seals (gaskets).

How to operate the luminous function on my watch?
PANZERA watches use super-luminova paint on the hands and indexes to allow the time to be read in the dark. See this video below for a demonstration on how to charge the luminous paint on your watch.
What battery does my watch use and how often should I change it?
Your watch is fitted with a Silver Oxide button battery. PANZERA recommends to have your battery changed by a local professional watchmaker every 2 years.
The battery model number is: SR626W, and is supplied by brands including Murata, Maxell, Sony, Renata and others.
How can I clean my rubber strap?
With the popularity of light colour rubber straps keeping them clean can be a concern. The acidity of your skin and perspiration can cause discolouration. Apple watch owners with light/bright straps have the same issues. Below is a video on how to clean these types of straps using a Magic Eraser sponge which works well.
