O L I G O watches are automatic mechanical watches. Fully wound, they have a 40-hour power reserve. Their precision is + or - 6 seconds per day.

In order for the watch to be as accurate as possible, we recommend winding it manually before putting it on your wrist (crown pushed against the case, turn the crown about 20 turns upwards - clockwise)

Their water resistance is 3 bar (30M). This means that they can withstand occasional splashes such as hand washing or rain, but they are not designed to be immersed in water. We therefore advise you to remove your O L I G O during a shower or a swim to avoid the risk of damaging it.

O L I G O bracelets are made from vegan and eco-friendly materials. They are therefore likely to evolve over time depending on how the watch is worn (exposure to perfumes, creams, hydro-alcohol gel, water, etc.).

Maintenance recommendation

A mechanical watch should be serviced every 5 years to ensure the reliability and precision of the movement. During the overhaul, the watch and movement are completely dismantled, cleaned, worn components replaced, and then the whole unit is reassembled and checked. The warranty after a full service is 2 years.



O L I G O watches are guaranteed for 3 years against all manufacturing defects (parts and labour). We encourage you to contact us directly either through the contact form or by phone +41 (0)77 443 45 58.

Full details of the guarantee can be found in the general terms and conditions of sale.

Oligo grants a 3-year (36-month) warranty on all its watches from the date of purchase, subject to the conditions set out in this warranty. This guarantee is total (parts and labour).

We do not guarantee that any marks on the clothing (e.g. rubbing of the leather on a shirt) can be removed and do not take responsibility for them. These traces are not a sign of poor quality or defect of strap, but a characteristic of a natural product.

The warranty does not cover :

- normal wear and tear and wear and tear due to ageing (e.g. scratches at crystal; alteration of the color and/or material of the bracelets, such as leather, textile, rubber);

- damage to any part of the watch resulting from improper/abusive use, lack of care, negligence, accidents (knocks, dents, crushing, breakage of the crystal, etc.), improper use of the watch;

- any indirect or consequential damages whatsoever resulting from the use, non-operation, defects or lack of accuracy of the watch;

- the watch handled by an unauthorised person or whose original condition has been altered beyond the control of Oligo. Thus, watches opened, modified, transformed or repaired by a third party not authorised by Oligo are no longer covered by the warranty.
