Dan Henry 1972 Maverick Automatic instructions
Your Dan Henry is powered by the Miyota cal. 8215, an automatic movement that is often referred to as “self-winding”. Automatic movements harness energy through the natural motion of your wrist. No battery is necessary.
If worn every day, your 1972 Maverick will not need winding. If the watch is not worn for several days, wind it for initial power (see Crown Positions).
The crown functions in three positions:
1. Unscrewed (wind the movement)
- To wind, rotate the crown clockwise. (If the watch has stopped because the automatic movement has run out of power, wind about 50 rotations if you have not used the unit for a while).
2. Partially pulled out (change the date)
- To advance the date, turn the crown counter-clockwise. (Do not adjust the date between 9pm–3am, while the date gears are in motion to change the date)
3. Fully pulled out (adjust the time)
Rotate the hands to set the time. (We recommend you only turn the hands clockwise for the long-term health of the movement).
Inner bezel GMT bezel
Your Dan Henry 1972 Maverick automatic watch is equipped with two crowns, the left crown rotates the inner GMT bezel, for a second time zone.
- Your crows are screw-down to improve water resistance and protect the movement.
- To open the crown, turn it counterclockwise until it is no longer threaded.
- To secure the crown after adjusting the time or date, gently push in the crown to align the screw threads; then turn clockwise.
Water resistance: Your chronograph is safe for wear in a swimming pool, but not for scuba diving. The crown must be completely screwed in to ensure that the watch is water resistant
Do not use the timing functions when the watch is wet or underwater.
Do not wear your watch in a bath, shower or sauna; soap dries out the rubber seals, and your watch may lose its water resistance.
