Please note that like any micromechanical precision instrument, Lars Larsen watches should have regular maintenance. This keeps your watch in perfect working order and makes it last longer. The frequency with which this maintenance work needs to be carried out depends on the model, as well as climatic conditions and the owner's care of the watch. Therefore we cannot give a specific time interval for servicing. We generally recommend that a complete maintenance service should be carried out every 3 years.
Basic advice for safeguarding the water-resistance of your watch:
The water resistance should be regularly checked i.e every 12 months by an authorised Larsen Watch Service Centre. You should ensure that the crown, according to the model, is pressed back at all times into position 0, or with a screwed down crown, that it is screwed back carefully, so that water cannot get into the mechanism. During the final check, Larsen watches are checked for water-resistance as marked on the bottom of the back of your watch case, but the water resistance of a watch is not permanent. The water-resistance can be impaired by accidental knocks to the case and crown, as well as natural wear of the internal gaskets.
The degree of water resistance is indicated on the back of the watch case:
3 bar (30 m)
5 bar (50 m)
10 bar (100 m)
15 bar (150 m)
20 bar (200 m)
100 bar (1000 m)
Please note that leather is a natural material subject to natural ageing. Depending on your wearing habit, the strap should be replaced regularly for reasons of safety (security of the watch on your wrist), as well as aesthetic and hygiene reasons. If worn daily, it may need to be changed every 6 to 12 months.To keep your leather strap in good condition for as long as possible, Larsen Watches recommends the following:
Don't expose your wristband to sunlight for long periods as this can fade it. Don't forget that leather is permeable. So avoid contact with oily substances and cosmetics. To prevent discolouration and deformation, avoid contact with water and moisture.
Bathing in the sea:
Always rinse your watch with clear water, when it comes in contact with salt water.
For metal bracelets and for all water-resistant cases use a small brush i.e a toothbrush in light soapy water.
Use a soft cloth to dry it so that you do not scratch the watch or the metal bracelet.
Avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetic products etc., since they may damage the bracelet, the case or the internal gaskets. If you have been swimming in chlorinated water, rinse your watch in clear water afterwards.
Do not expose your watch to any intense magnetic fields, such as metal detectors or electromagnetic appliances. This can damage your watch or impair its accuracy.
Do not expose your watch to sudden temperature changes (exposure to sunlight followed by immersion in cold water) or extreme temperatures over 60°C (140°F) or under than 0°C (32°F). Or for examble sauna to shower / swimming pool to shower.
Whether thermal or any other shocks, avoid them. In the event of violent shocks, please have your watch checked by a Larsen Watch approved Service Centre.

Watch batteries can last from between 2 and 3 years, depending on the watch type, its size and the amount of energy used by the various functions. If the second hand begins to jump in 4 second intervals, the battery needs to be changed (end of life indicator)
Changing the battery:
We recommend that you take your watch to an authorised Lars Larsen Watch Service Centre or Larsen Watch retailer as they have the tools and testing equipment necessary to carry out the work professionally. An empty battery must be changed as soon as possible to avoid the risk of leakage and resulting damage to the watch mechanism.
