SET UP YOUR BAUME AUTOMATIC WATCH

An automatic movement is a complex assembly of gears, gear trains and other components often not much bigger than a single strand of hair. A watch’s precision is determined by the spiral balance wheel, the heart of the watch, which regulates the rate of time through its oscillations. Oscillation frequency can be anywhere between 3 and 4 hz, it is therefore important to bear in mind that, despite the great care taken in assembling your watch and its movement, it is nevertheless not as precise as a quartz watch, with an oscillation of 32,000 hz. Further, rate variations may still occur, caused by a variety of factors, including impact, the aging of the oils, significant temperature fluctuations, magnetic fields and wearer activity.
In general, your watch time may vary by 1 to 2 minutes per week.


SELF-WINDING MECHANICAL WATCH
A watch equipped with an automatic winding mechanism automatically winds itself throughout the day as you move your wrist.
Because of this, the watchband must be correctly fitted to the wearer’s wrist. If the watchband is too loose, the watch may not wind itself correctly. For optimal winding, wear your watch daily.
If you have not worn your watch for more than 40 hours, you must wind it manually by turning the crown in Position.

Please note that once you have finished adjusting your watch, press lightly on the crown while turning gently clockwise, tightening it down again until you feel some resistance. If the crown is not correctly screwed-down, your watch may no longer be completely water-resistant.

To help you setting your watch we have defined the following position:
Position 0: the crown is pushed to its maximum
Position 1: the crown is pulled at the first step or click
