Elapsed Time Ring

If your watch is equipped with a rotatable outer dial with numbers and indicators, this Elapsed Time Ring may be used to indicate the length of time remaining for an activity or the starting time of an activity.

  • TIME REMAINING - set the outer ring so that the traingle is pointing to the time the activity is to end.
  • STARTING TIME - set the triangle on the time the activity is to begin.

INDIGLO® Night-Light

If your watch has INDIGLO on the dial, your watch is equipped with the INDIGLO Night-Light. To activate this feature, depress the crown or the pusher on the left side of the watch to illuminate the entire dial for easy reading during nighttime or low light conditions. Light will appear immediately.

Your NAUTICA watch featuring INDIGLO Night-Light contains a patented electroluminescent technology (U.S. Patent Number 4,527,96 and 4,775,964). The INDIGLO Night-Light illuminates the entire watch lens with a uniform bright light that offers superior readability in all low light and nighttime conditions. Simply press the appropriate button to activate.

WARNING: DO NOT PRESS THE BUTTON UNDER WATER AS THE WATCH WILL NOT RETAIN WATER RESISTANCE.

Screw -in Setting Crown

Some deep-depth water-resistant analog watches require the setting crown to be screwed in to ensure water-resistance. If your watch case has a protrusion with screw threads, the crown must be screwed in after setting the watch.

To screw in, push the crown firmly against the threaded protrusion and hold it in while turning the crown clockwise. Continue to screw in the crown light until it is tight.

Tachymeter

A tachymeter measures the speed at which the wearer has traveled over a measured distance, i.e., a measured mile on the highway.

For example, start the chronograph when you pass the starting point and stop it when you pass the finish. You can then read your speed in units per hour off the tachymeter scale.

Water-Resistance

If your watch is water-resistant, it will be indicated on the watch face or on the caseback.

  • 50 Meter Water-Resistant watch withstands water pressure to 86p.s.i.a. (equals immersion to 164 feet or 50 meters below sea level) and dust as long as crystal, crown and case remain intact.
  • 100 Meter Water-Resistant watch withstands water pressure to 160p.s.i.a. (equals immersion to 328 feet or 100 meters below sea level) and dust as long as crystal, crown and case remain intact.

NOTE: CROWN MUST BE SCREWED INTO THE CASE PROTRUSION TO ASSURE WATER RESISTANCE.
