Your Guillot watch is equipped with a Swiss quartz movement. The average life of a battery is about two (2) years. To change the battery, refer to the settings chapter.
Metals and glass used
Guillot watches are made of stainless steel (316L) and some are covered with a pink gold or black plating. The glass used is a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating.
Interchangeable patented Guillot plate system
Your Guillot watch is equipped with a patented system that allows you to change the way you wear your watch according to your desires. Thanks to a system of stainless steel plates sliding on the back of your case, you can wear your watch as a bracelet, pocket watch or pendant watch.
When inserting your plates, make sure that they are in good contact with the case and that they have been pushed all the way to the end of their path.
It is advisable to keep your Guillot watch in a ventilated area protected from prolonged contact with ultraviolet rays.
Your Guillot watch has been delivered to you in a case with compartments and we recommend that you store it in this case and place the various elements that make up your watch (case, fixing accessories such as strap, pocket watch and/or pendant) in their compartment when you are not using your watch or when travelling. If you have several Guillot watches, you can store them in the same case, making sure that the different components of your watch (case, fixing accessories such as strap, pocket watch and/or pendant) are protected from each other.
To clean your Guillot watch we recommend that you use a clean and dry microfibre cloth and wipe the marks off the glass and the rest of the case without rubbing hard.
If you also want to clean the inside of the fixing plates, we advise you to use a cotton swab and pass over the tracks without rubbing intensely.
Your Guillot watch can withstand a pressure of 3 bar. This resistance has been tested in accordance with Guillot manufacturing standards and implies that your watch is only protected against splashes, rain or household chores but not against total and/or prolonged immersion such as swimming, diving, water sports….
In the event of accidental immersion in sea water, we recommend that you quickly wipe your watch with a soft cloth moistened with fresh water and dry it with a clean, dry microfibre cloth.
Although Guillot watches are equipped with magnets, the magnetism has been controlled so as not to alter the proper functioning of your watch movement.
Research and laboratory tests have been carried out to measure the influence of magnets on the autonomy of the movement. The magnet fixing plates and the case have been designed and engineered to block these magnetic waves and protect the movement inside. Thus their magnetic fields are isolated and do not affect the proper functioning of the movement.
Any sudden and violent impact, such as a fall or caused by the practice of a sport, may have not only damaged the external appearance of your watch but also altered the proper internal functioning of your watch. Indeed, some shocks can also affect the operation of your watch without the outside being visibly affected. An external inspection of your watch will not be sufficient to detect damage to the components inside your watch.
The practice of certain violent sports or sports that can lead to falls should therefore not be associated with wearing your Guillot watch.
Our leathers are treated to resist humidity and perspiration. Nevertheless, leather remains a natural material that evolves according to the use you make of it and the conditions in which you use it. As a result, your leather may become patina and its colour may change.
Leather also remains sensitive to water and ambient humidity. We therefore advise you not to wear your leather strap when participating in sporting activities.
In order to preserve their quality and appearance, the leather straps of Guillot watches:
– must never be exposed to water and more generally to any liquid
– are not intended to be worn when practising manual or sporting activities.
In the event that your leather strap has been exposed to water, we recommend that you dab it with a dry, clean cloth and do not wear it until it has completely dried, which will be done flat and away from a heat source.
