We are using a Japanese Miyota Precision Quartz Movement coming from one of the leading manufacturers in the watch industry.
Schipper watches are, like the majority of luxury watches, water resistant at 3ATM. That means suitable for everyday use. Splash/rain resistant. Not suitable for showering, bathing, swimming, snorkeling, water related work, fishing or diving.
The leather straps are made of cowhide leather.
Glass is made of mineral. Mineral glass is ordinary tempered glass made from silica.
Most mid-priced watches have mineral glass crystal. It is an ordinary glass crystal that has been heat treated or chemically treated to withstand scratches.
We use Sony SR626SW batteries. Batteries can be found at most electronic stores, as well as most watch repair or jewelry shops. Any watch repair shop or jeweler should be able to assist you with the battery replacement. We don’t suggest you replacing the battery by yourself, as it requires some special tools and you could damage the watch.
