Rodania offers a 3-year warranty on your Rodania watch from the date of purchase, subject to the conditions outlined below. The Rodania International Warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship that are present at the time of the delivery of the purchased Rodania watch.
During the warranty period, upon presentation of a valid warranty card, you are entitled to free repair of any defects. If your Rodania watch cannot be restored to its normal operating condition, Rodania will replace it with an identical Rodania watch or one with similar characteristics. The warranty for the replacement watch expires 3 years after the date of purchase of the replaced watch.
This warranty does not cover:
- Battery life;
- Normal wear and tear and aging (e.g. scratches to the crystal; changes in the color and/or material of non-metallic bracelets and chains, such as leather, textile, rubber);
- Damage to any part of the watch resulting from improper/abusive use, lack of care, negligence, accidents (knocks, crushing, broken glass, etc.), improper use of the watch or failure to follow the instructions provided by Rodania;
- Indirect or consequential damages of any kind resulting from the use, non-use, defects or lack of precision of the Rodania watch;
- If the Rodania watch has been handled by an unauthorized dealer (e.g., for battery replacement, service, or repair) or has been altered beyond Rodania's control from its original condition.
All other claims against Rodania, e.g., for damages beyond those defined in this warranty, are expressly excluded, except for any mandatory rights that the purchaser may assert against the manufacturer.
- is independent of any warranty provided by the seller, for which the seller assumes sole responsibility.
- does not affect the buyer's rights against the seller or any other mandatory rights the buyer may have against the seller.
Rodania's after-sales service ensures the proper maintenance of your Rodania watch. If your watch requires maintenance, take it to an official Rodania dealer; they will be able to service your Rodania watch in accordance with Rodania’s standards.
Replacing the battery
The replacement of the battery must be done by an authorized Rodania dealer. They have the necessary tools and equipment to carry out this work professionally. An exhausted battery should be replaced as soon as possible to prevent the battery from oxidising and to avoidthe risk of leakage, which could damage the movement.
Precautions and preventive measures
Do not expose your watch to sudden changes (e.g., exposure to sunlight followed by immersion in cold water) or extreme temperatures (above 60°C or below 0°C).
Do not expose your watch to strong magnetic fields such as those produced by loudspeakers, mobile phones, computers, refrigerators or other electromagnetic devices.
Prevent thermal or other shocks that could damage your watch. In case of a severe shock, please have your watch checked by an authorized Rodania dealer.
Avoid direct contact with solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetics, etc.: as they may damage the bracelet the case, and the watch.
Care and Inspection
Regularly clean the case and band with a soft cloth to prevent corrosion from perspiration. All water-resistant watches can be cleaned with a toothbrush and soapy water, then dried with a soft cloth. If a water-resistant watch has been immersed in seawater, it should be rinsed with fresh water and then dried completely.
The water resistance of watches is tested through laboratory pressure tests, simulating conditions comparable to those experienced by a stationary swimmer or diver at various depths. However, many aquatic activities involve movement and other environmental changes that may challenge or compromise the watch's water resistance.
The water resistance of a watch is not guaranteed indefinitely, so we recommend having it checked every 2 years by an authorized Rodania dealer.
To ensure that your watch remains water-resistant as long as possible, please follow these instructions:
After using a water-resistant watch in the ocean, wash it in clean water and dry it with a soft cloth.
Wipe off moisture, sweat and dust with a soft, dry cloth after removing the watch from your wrist to increase the durability of the case back, gaskets and strap.
Make sure your crown is screwed down before washing it.
Avoid washing a water-resistant watch directly under running water. Wash your watch with a clean and wet cloth.
Never operate the time-setting crown and/or pushers when the watch is submerged in water, and ensure that the crown is fully pushed in after each operation.
Do not attempt to open the watch yourself; always have it inspected by an authorized Rodania dealer.
All Rodania watches are water-resistant to 3 ATM (30 m / 100 ft). A screw-down crown enhances water resistance, particularly for watches that are water-resistant to depths greater than 10 ATM (100 m / 330 ft).
PVD Coating (Physical Vapor Deposition)
This process occurs in a vacuum, with microscopic particles deposited on products via ion bombardment. Very thin layers (1 to 3 μm) of impurity-free components can be produced. These layers offer high hardness (nitride, carbide, etc.) and resist corrosion, adhere well, and come in various colors. PVD's inert nature minimizes the risk of intolerance.
Sapphire is made from aluminum oxide (Al2 O3). It is transparent and colorless, and can only be scratched or cut with a diamond. Due to its extreme hardness, it is scratch-resistant and resistant to wear and chemical attack. However, sapphire can break when dropped on the floor.
316L Stainless Steel
Rodania has selected high-quality stainless steel from the 316L family. It offers high resistance to corrosion and excellent strength.
Like any high-precision instrument, a watch requires regular maintenance for optimal performance. As a general rule, we recommend having your watch checked every 2 years by your authorized Rodania dealer. Please note that this interval may be shorter depending on the climate and conditions in which the watch is used. To ensure that your watch receives the best possible maintenance and that your warranty remains valid, always contact an authorized Rodania dealer.
Availability of spare parts
Rodania guarantees the availability of spare parts for its watches for a minimum of 5 years from the date production of the watch ceases.
