Operating Instructions: Unscrew the crown, located at the 3-pm position by turning counter-clockwise until it lightly jumps out into 1st Position. Crown in 1st Position - Wind The Watch: Turn the crown clockwise 25 to 30 turns, called “Winding The Watch�. Do this about once a week, to make sure your watch is fully wound and runs smoothly. Crown in 2nd Position - Change The Date: Change the Date by slowly moving the crown clockwise to advance by one day at a time. Crown in 3rd Position - Change The Time: Set the Time by moving the crown clockwise. Remember that in any given 24-hour period the hour hand will pass the 12 marking twice which will change the date automatically. When you are done winding the watch, setting the date and setting the time, you are going to screw the crown back into its original position by pushing on the crown gently while at the same time turning the crown clockwise. It is very important that you screw the crown in completely, otherwise water or humidity might get into the watch.

Debaufre GMT Watch - Usage Example To set the scene: Assume you live on the East Coast and it is now 5pm in the evening. However you want to track the time on the West Coast as well, and local time there is 2-pm in the afternoon. Considering that 2-pm in 24-hour calculations (since it’s displayed in Military time) is 1400 hours. So set the red GMT hand to point at the 1400 marking on the outside bezel ring on your watch. This will now accurately track the time on the West Coast while the normal hour hand tracks the East Coast time. Here’s another example, you want to track the time in London which is +5 hours from the East Coast. So at 5-pm EST, it is 10-pm in London. Per Military time, 10-pm is 2200 hours, so align the red GMT hour hand up with 2200 on the outside bezel ring and now you’re tracking London time. To find a list of time zones around the world, search Google for “World Times”. Enjoy your Debaufre Swiss GMT Watch.


Unitas 6497 & 6498 Hand-Wind Movement Description: Mechanical lever movement with 18.000 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz), round calibre, manual hand-winding movement, 17 jewels.

Operating Instructions: The crown, located at the 3-pm position, is where you “handwind” or “charge” your watch, which is important since the watch is a hand-winding model which requires winding every few days to operate. Crown in 1st Position - Wind The Watch: Turn the crown clockwise 25 to 30 turns. This is called “winding the watch”. You probably want to do this once every few days, just to make sure your watch is wound and runs smoothly. When the spring is fully wound, the winding will tighten and stop, do NOT forceably wind past that point. Crown in 2nd Position - Change The Time: Set the Time by pulling out the crown and slowly moving it clockwise to adjust for the correct time (we do not recommend setting the time backwards). When you are done setting the time, push the crown back to its original position. This is important, otherwise the watch won’t run and water or humidity might get into the watch. Once the watch has been wound, it will run even if you remove it from your wrist. Of course after a while, the spring will be once again unwound and the watch will stop. Simply repeat the steps outlined above to once again get it running smoothly and accurately.
