Watch Water Resistance

All the Shinola timepieces are designed with a minimum water-resistance rating of 3ATM (100ft / 30m). Your watch's water-resistance rating can be found on the back of the watch.

The water-resistance of a timepiece protects the movement from dust, moisture, and risk of damage to the movement should it be immersed in water. Please see chart for guidelines for recommended exposure of various water ratings.

It is important not to attempt to adjust the position of the crown while the timepiece is in contact with water. Water can enter the case causing damage to the movement. For timepieces with screw-down crowns, it is important to ensure the crown is in the proper position and completely locked before contact with water. For timepieces with chronograph functions, do not engage the chronograph under water, as water may leak into the case and cause damage to the movement.
