- WHAT IS A QUARTZ WATCH?
Quartz watches are simply watches that are battery powered, or more specifically, uses an electronic oscillator powered by a quartz crystal to create an extremely accurate measurement of time.
- HOW LONG DOES A WATCH BATTERY LAST?
It depends on the type of the watch, dimensions and capacity of the battery, the size and weight of hands, and the amount of energy required by the different functions of the movement. In most cases, a battery in a brand new quartz watch with basic time and date functionality may last up to three years.
- WHAT IS A MECHANICAL WATCH?
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a mechanical movement to measure the passage of time, as opposed to modern quartz watches which function electronically. It is driven by a spring (called a mainspring) which must be wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power the balance wheel (a weighted wheel which oscillates back and forth at a constant rate).
- WHAT IS THE POWER RESERVE FOR A SELF-WINDING MECHANICAL TELLUS WATCH?
The functioning of a self-winding mechanical movement depends on the wrist movements of the wearer. When fully wound, a watch will usually have a power reserve of around 48 hours.
- WHAT ARE THE WATERPROOFING RULES FOR A WATCH?
The resistance of a watch is always shown on the back of the case. So if no indication is given, your watch isn’t waterproof.
The measure of waterproofing is specified through the meters unit:
A 30 meters water resistant watch does not allow immersion and can’t bear more than the occasional splashes. That's why we advise you to remove your watch before any contact with water: washing hands, cleaning dishes.
A 50 meters water resistant watch will allow you to immerse it but with a reasonable use in the bathroom tub or a pool without any diving. Please be aware that a direct jet from a shower or a tap directly on the glass or the push buttons may be the equivalent of a 50 meters water pressure and your watch may then take the water.
A 100 meters water resistant watch will not take water and will resist immersions even when used during water sports.
A 200 meters water resistant watch can be used in deep water while scuba diving, jet skiing, or diving.
- WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC FEATURES OF TIME TO CHANGE COLLECTION?
Based on the fact that a woman acquires a watch for its functionality as well as its color and the material of her band, Tellus came up with an innovative concept where one can change the straps/bands of the watch at will, depending on seasonor mood. You can choose your own combination by purchasing the watch case of your choice and pairing it with any of the 100 different bands in every color of the rainbow.
- WHERE DO THE CRYSTALS ON TELLUS WATCHES COME FROM?
We only use Swarovski elements for our watches.
- ARE TELLUS'S GOLD WATCHES MADE OF SOLID GOLD OR ARE THEY GOLD-PLATED?

- DOES TELLUS’s STAINLESS STEEL WATCHES CONTAIN NICKEL?

- HOW CAN I LOOK AFTER MY WATCH TO MAKE IT LAST?
Magnetic fields: unless your OMEGA watch is equipped with a Master Co-Axial Chronometer movement, resistant to magnetic fields greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss), we recommend that you avoid exposing it to powerful magnetic fields such as loudspeakers, refrigerators, certain handbag clasps, I-pad cases etc.
Diving in the sea: always rinse your watch with warm water afterwards. Please note: we recommend that you have the water resistance of your watch checked once a year by an authorized OMEGA Service Center.
Shocks: whether thermal or other, avoid them.
Crown: screw it in carefully to ensure that no water enters the mechanism.
Cleaning: for metal bracelets and for all water-resistant cases use a toothbrush with soapy water and a soft cloth for drying.
