Setting a Men's Automatic Watch: A Step-by-Step Instructions

Congratulations on your new AAPEX men's automatic watch! We understand that setting up and adjusting your timepiece can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you're new to automatic watches. But worry not, because we've got you covered! In this comprehensive instruction manual, we will walk you through the process of setting up your men's automatic watch, ensuring accurate timekeeping and the smooth functioning of your timepiece.

Step 1: Winding the Watch

To begin, let's wind your AAPEX men's automatic watch:

  1. Locate the Winding Crown: Look for the winding crown positioned at either the 3 o'clock or 4 o'clock position on the side of your watch.

  2. Unscrew the Crown: Gently unscrew the crown in a counter clockwise direction until it pops out slightly. Avoid using excessive force to prevent any damage.

  3. Wind the Watch: Rotate the crown in a forward motion, clockwise, for approximately 20 to 30 full turns. This action winds the mainspring and stores power in your watch.

  4. Secure the Crown: Once you have finished winding, push the crown back in gently and screw it clockwise until it is snug against the case. Ensure that it is fully secured to maintain the watch's water resistance.

Step 2: Setting the Time

Now, let's set the time on your AAPEX men's automatic watch:

  1. Pull Out the Crown: Gently pull the winding crown to its outermost position. This action allows you to adjust the time.

  2. Rotate the Crown: Turn the crown clockwise or counter clockwise to set the hands to the desired time. Take note of whether it is AM or PM and adjust accordingly.

  3. Setting the Date (if applicable): For watches with a date complication, continue rotating the crown until the desired date is displayed. Avoid setting the date between 9 PM and 3 AM to prevent damage to the date mechanism.

  4. Push the Crown Back In: Once the correct time and date are set, push the crown back in gently to its original position.

Step 3: Additional Features (if applicable)

Some AAPEX men's automatic watches may have additional features. If your watch includes any of these functions, refer to the manufacturer's instructions for setting and operating these additional features. These features may include:

  • Day Indicator
  • Second Time Zone
  • Chronograph Functions

Step 4: Wearing and Daily Use

Now that your AAPEX men's automatic watch is set up, it's time to wear and care for it properly:

  1. Securely Fasten the Watch: Place the watch on your wrist and fasten the clasp or buckle securely.

  2. Daily Wear or Use a Watch Winder: To ensure accurate timekeeping, wear your automatic watch for a minimum of 8 hours per day. If you do not wear it daily, consider using a watch winder to keep the watch movement adequately powered.

  3. Storage during Extended Periods: If you plan to remove your watch for an extended period, such as when traveling, store it in a watch box or use a watch winder to maintain its power reserve.
