Launch event, user manual & shipment information
What a day. It almost felt like when apple starts selling a new product.... We were completely overrun by approximately 400 watch lovers. They came from Norway, Holland, Germany, France and Austria.
The shipment is underway and already 2/3 of the watches have been sent out to their new owners. We aim to complete the shipment by December 8. Christmas will be early this year! We thank all of you for your patience.
User manual: Please read instructions beyond.
Please operate the winding button with the requisite care. You are handling a fine mechanical device. The winding button can easily be pulled off or “mangled” with the application of force. Keep the watch away from from magnetic force. Do not place the watch near sources of heat. Ensure that the winding button is pressed in before placing the watch in water. Rinse the watch with freshwater after swimming in the sea. Water resistance to 5 ATM corresponds to a depth of 50 m. Special precaution for water sports: The impact of water (e.g. when water skiing, diving etc.) can mean that water pressure is rises briefly above 50 ATM.
Date & time
The winding button is screwed into place. Before you can set the watch, the button must be released. Turn the button carefully in an anticlockwise direction until the button “springs out”. The button is now at level 1.
Level 1: Winding up the watch If your watch stops, it should be wound up by rotating the winding button alternately in a clockwise and anticlockwise direction for 15-20 seconds. Note: The watch will begin to tick with even the smallest of movements. At this precise moment, however, the winding stem still has too little energy to enable to watch to keep accurate time. As such, where possible, the watch should always be kept wound up. The watch has a power reserve of almost two days.
Level 2: Setting the date Before setting the date, point the hands (second and minute hands) downwards. (If the hands are pointing upwards, it can occur that the date mechanism becomes blocked.) Locating the second level and rotating the date wheel requires a little sensitivity. Turn the winding button in an anticlockwise direction. The date can only be adjusted in one direction - forwards. Caution: Your watch is mechanical. It doesn’t know whether the time you’ve set is in the morning or at night. The date changes after two times twelve hours. In order that the date changes at midnight, you should pay attention to the following when setting it: Always set the date to the previous day, then move the time forward until the date changes. If you’re setting the time in the morning: Set it as normal. If you’re setting the time after noon: After changing the date, move the watch forward another twelve hours before setting the time
Level 3: Setting the time Pull the winding button out fully. Set the time. Caution: After you have set the date and time, the winding button should be screwed back in. Make sure you do this gently - no force is required. Use gentle pressure to twist the winding button back to its original position. If the winding button is not properly locked in place, the watch is not waterproof. Should the winding button be extended, it is also at risk of snapping off if the watch suffers an impact.
The adjustable launch sequencer dial on the inner ring of the watch indicates the flight phases of the rocket in orbit. Information about the time, height and stage (for rocket stages 1, 2 and 3) is presented here. Set the launch sequencer: The winding button for the launch sequencer is located at two o’clock. To set the dial to the correct time, the crown must be released. Turn the crown in anticlockwise direction until it springs out. It’s now possible to rotate the inner ring. Turn the launch sequencer dial to your desired lift-off time. The minute hand shows you in which phase the rocket is located: at minute 1:58, stage 1 is jettisoned; at minute 3:10, the rocket crosses the boundary with space (Karaman Line) and at minute 4:48, stage 2 is jettisoned. After minute 8:49, the spacecraft detaches from the rocket. It is now in orbit at a height of 2,000 km and coasting at a speed of approx. 27,000 km/h.
Caution: After you have set the launch sequencer dial, the winding button should be screwed back in. Make sure you do this gently - no force is required. Use gentle pressure to twist the winding button back to its original position.
