Water Resistance

When 3ATM” is marked on the case back of your watch, this means the watch is resistant to water at depths of 30 meters (5ATM=50 meters, 10ATM=100 meters). If there is no such marking, the watch is only moisture resistant and should not be put under water in any circumstances. Regardless of the water resistant level, your watch should not be worn under high mist environment such as sauna or steam room. If the watch is damaged by water leakage, please immediately seek an authorized retailer or service centre for repair.
