Watch Care & Cleaning
To clean your watch's case or crystal, lightly moisten a soft cloth with warm water. Applying minimal pressure, proceed to wipe your case and crystal clean. Be careful not to immerse the watch in water, nor to apply too much pressure during cleaning. Avoid soaking the leather strap in water. Thoroughly dry your case, crystal, and strap with a soft dry cloth, being careful to apply minimal pressure again. A free cleaning is included with our battery replacement or strap installation services.

What does Water Resistant 5 ATM mean?
All J.Ciro Watches are Water Resistant at 5 ATM / 50 Meters. A common misconception is that 5 ATM means the watch can withstand swimming as deep as 50 meters beneath the surface. This is incorrect. 5 ATM, instead relates to atmospheric pressure. The official measurement is atmosphere (ATM), which is equal to 10 meters of static water pressure. Watches generally come in contact with non-static water, though e.g., waves at the beach, rain-water, garden hoses, water coming from the faucet. All of these instances have water hitting your watch at different pressures and anything over 5 ATM can damage your watch, even if your watch is only exposed for a limited time.
J.Ciro's general recommendation is to avoid swimming / sub-merging your watch in water and never dive or spray water at your watch. That said, don't worry if you get caught in the rain, get splashed, or get your watch wet while washing your hands.
