We utilise automatic movements within our watches. An automatic movement relies on kinetic energy generated by wrist movement to keep it ticking. A fully wound watch will have a power reserve that'll kick in for a period of inactivity.
To that end if you leave your watch on the side without any exposure to movement for an extended period of time it will eventually stop ticking. It can be restarted with a firm shake or the winding of the crown.
Pull the crown to the first click and turn the date to yesterday's date. Then pull the crown gently out to the 2nd click and turn the hands clockwise until the date window advances to today’s date. That’ll now be 12 o’clock midnight last night. Now you can advance the time to the correct reading moving through and past 12 o’clock if the current time is past midday. Finally, remember to push and screw the crown back in once the time is set correctly (an incorrectly secured crown can allow water to enter the watch).
Yes, all of our watches are pressure tested according to each watch's specification. Although your watch is sealed against dust and moisture, it's smart to have it pressure tested every few years to ensure the seals are fine.
Our wathches utilise automatic movements which each have a differing accuracy range.
The Brunt uses an NH35 movement which is accurate to within -20~+40 seconds per day.
The Campbell uses a Miyota 9015 movement which is accurate to within -10~30 seconds per day
The Gibson uses an SW200 movement which is accurate to within +/-12 sec/day up to +/- 30 sec/day
Most movements will outperform their manufacturers guidelines but if your watch isn't within these tolerances please drop us an email.
If your watch is running fast, it could have become magnetised from a strong magnetic source. If you suspect this please get in touch with the Stirling team.
