First Steps


1. Rest mode and wind-up function for automatic Zeitmesser

2. Date set-up

3. Time set-up

1 Winding up your automatic
You only have to complete this process if you have an automatic Zeitmesser. Before you can set the time on your Zeitmesser, you have to wind it up. To do this, turn the crown towards 12.00 h ten times. It‘s now completely wound up. The force of motion will automatically rewind it while you wear it. Hence, it will stop working if you don’t wear the Zeitmesser over an extended period of time. Rewinding it will reactivate it.

2 Setting up the time and date
To set up the time, turn the pulled out crown until the hands are in the desired position.
Note: There are 24 hours in a day, but watches have only 12 hours on their faces. When setting the date, make sure you choose the proper date change point to ensure the date doesn’t change at noon.
Also keep in mind: While the date jumps from one day to another, the transition inside the movement takes longer. It occurs between 9 pm and 4 am or between 9 am and 4 pm if your Zeitmesser has been set up to the incorrect day-night rhythm. Changing the date during these time periods could damage the date movement.

Your Zeitmesser is water proof up to 50 m of underwater diving pressure. It easily keeps the water out as you go about your everyday routines, such as washing your hands or the dishes. However, it’s not designed for permanent exposure to water.
