About Altanus 

The origins of Altanus Geneve date back to the beginning of the last century in Geneva, Switzerland, It was born as a workshop specializing in refined and exclusive products, but in a short time, thanks to the initiative of a Neapolitan family headed by Mario Casillo, it entered the panorama of watchmaking, earning more and more approval and expanding its network of customers.

Today, Altanus’ worldwide distribution starts from the headquarters in Il Tarì of Marcianise (Caserta), Italy, still maintaining Geneva’s workshops in Switzerland.

If you cannot find your watch model (or movement) in this watch, you can try to determine your Altanus winding mode. You should choose the combined winding mode (CW+CCW) and minimum turns per day (TPD). Then put your watch into the watch winder and check the accuracy of your watch display time after a few days. If you run behind, you need to increase the number of TPD by one level.

Altanus Watch Time Adjustment Method

- Pull the crown outwards with one push
- Set the watch to the exact local time.
- Push in the crown and turn clockwise until secure.
- Push the crown firmly into position 1 and the watch starts to move.
Some Altanus watches have a screw-down crown that must be unscrewed to change the time or date. After use, the crown must be pressed against the case and tightened. Otherwise, it will affect the waterproof performance of the watch.

Can I Always Wind my Watch Manually With the Crown?

It’s okay to do this once in a while, but not too often—especially if your watch has a screw-down crown.
Firstly, with crown winding, the gears and other parts of an automatic movement will wear out faster, as will the screw-in crown system, as it is not designed for frequent use. Self-winding watches should be worn for at least eight hours a day to make the most of their power reserves, so rather than letting your automatic watch's power reserve drain, invest in a simple automatic watch winder.
