Probably the worlds smallest watch manufacturer. The first and only watch manufacturer in Iceland. All timepieces are designed and assembled by hand in our studio/workshop located in Iceland. In our production we only incorporate high quality Swiss movements, European made parts and components. Every detail of our timepieces has been given the personal attention needed for perfection.

Automatic mechanical movements

A self-winding watch movement has a mechanism which winds the mainspring using the natural motions of the wearer’s body. For a self-winding/automatic watch to function properly, the mainspring must build up a sufficient power reserve and therefor it should be worn at least eight hours a day to maximise the power reserve. Automatic wristwatches can also be wound manually by turning the crown, so the watch can be kept running when not worn, and in case the wearer’s wrist motions are not sufficient to keep it wound automatically. When the watch has stopped after depleting the power reserve, it can be rewound by hand (About 10 clockwise turns of the crown).

General information

Js watch co. Reykjavik has tested your mechanical timepiece during and after assembly. If it is cared for and serviced according to manufacturer recommendations it will have a long life. Js watch co. Reykjavik recommends that the timepiece is brought in for servicing and testing every four to five years. Service includes oil change, cleaning, tuning and testing of the water seal. If the timepiece is cared for and serviced at regular intervals it will please the eye and serve as an accurate timekeeper for years to come.

POWER RESERVE

Wearing your watch automatically powers the movement and when your watch is fully wound, you are looking at approximately 40 hours of reserved power for most JS collections and 65 of reserved power for the Vínland collection.

SECOND TIME ZONE (GMT COMPLICATION FEATURE)

Models with this feature have a sub dial. To set the GMT hand the crown is pulled out one click (position II) and then
turned forward to adjust the GMT hand. The time is now running in the GMT display according to the desired time zone. For models with 24-hour display, this is used as a display for the second time zone.


WATER RESISTANCE

Keep your watch away from water and moisture. There is no such thing as a waterproof watch. Water resistance of 5 ATM indicates that the threshold for pressure is equivalent to the pressure that the object would endure at the depth of 50 meters. This means that the watch has been tested at this depth and reviewed with the leak test. The figure refers to a diving depth and does not take into consideration dynamic loads, such as swimming, diving in the water, jets, etc. The pressure load may be much higher in these cases and may damage the mechanism. 5 ATM means that the watch is suitable for daily use, such as showering and washing your hands. This model is not for swimming or diving! Every watch is exposed to various environmental factors, thus making the gaskets lose their strength over time, therefore making the watch less water resistant as time goes by. Even with regular wear and tear or accidental bumps against the crown, the water resistance will be affected. Have your watch regularly serviced by an authorised technician. Depending on the climate, use and maintenance of the watch, you should have a full service on your watch every five to seven years. never push the buttons or adjust the crown in damp or wet conditions. Should water, moisture or condensation unintentionally penetrate the dial, you should immediately have your watch checked.
