How should I clean the bronze crown?
The signature Farer bronze crown will patinate as it is exposed to the elements. It may also over time develop a soft green tone depending on the acidity of the wearer’s skin. If you wish to return the bronze crown to its original condition, use a pinhead-size blob of metal polish and a fine polishing cloth to gently remove any tarnish. We recommend Peek metal polish.

Servicing & Repairs
How often should my watch be serviced?
All component parts are manufactured from the best materials. However, some parts are subject to natural wear. This is why we recommend that you have a maintenance service carried out on your watch every four to five years. Contact Farer for any servicing and maintenance requirements through the Servicing & Repair contact form or alternatively use a reputable watch technician who has experience with ETA movements.
