Winding the watch

  1. Unscrew the crown by turning it anti-clockwise until it pops out
  2. Don't pull it out any further. It winds at the "zero clicks"position
  3. Wind around 10-15 times in a clockwise direction until the watch starts moving
  4. Push the crown back in
  5. Tighten it by pushing in and turning clockwise until it's tight

Note: If the watch is already moving, you probably don't need to wind it further. Just wearing it will keep it wound up. If you wear the watch every day you do not need to wind it in the morning when you put it on.

Setting the time

  1. Unscrew the crown by turning it anti-clockwise until it pops out
  2. Pull the crown out as far as it will go (you should feel a click)
  3. Set the time by turning the crown anti-clockwise, ensuring that you only go forwards in time, never backwards.
  4. Push the crown back in
  5. Tighten it by pushing in and turning clockwise until it's tight

Removing the bracelet

Using a pin or pointed tool, push the pin through the hole in the lugs while gently pulling the bracelet. Here is a YouTube video on removing a bracelet:

Adjusting the bracelet

The Neon bracelet uses a combination of screws and pins. Internal links use hidden pins, adjustable links use single ended screws.

Use a 1mm screwdriver to remove links that you do not need. You can only remove links that will not damage the bracelet, so do not worry about removing screws to adjust it.

Important note: We use a thread locking solution to stop bracelet screws coming loose during regular use. If you need to adjust the bracelet, you may find that screws are hard to remove. If this is the case, slightly heating the effected screw will help. See the video below. Please do make sure that you reapply thread locking solution when putting screws back in, or they may not stay perfectly tight. We recommend Loctite 222 as the best option.

It is recommended to try to remove links evenly (or close to evenly) from each side of the bracelet so that the strap stays even. Some people find it slightly more comfortable to remove around 2 thirds from the end of the bracelet that attaches to the bottom of the watch and 1 third from the end that attaches to the top. Do what works for you.

Swimming in the Neon Automatic

The Neon Automatic is water resistant to 100 meters/10ATM. That means it's safe to swim in and for general water sports, but should not be used for professional diving.

Always make sure that the crown is fully screwed down before taking the Neon Automatic in the water, as if the crown is loose it will be easy for water to get in!
