How to use it

Winding the watch movement

Your watch is fitted with a manual-winding mechanical movement
Turn the crown forwards and backwards without forcing it, until it resists


Setting the time

Pull the crown out and turn in a clockwise direction until the desired time is indicated. Push the crown back into its original position


Winding the musical movement

Open the back of the watch using the thumbnail groove
Inset the key into the square aperture and turn the key gently in a clockwise direction, ensuring that it remains inserted


Starting and stoping the music

Press the button under the winding hole and it will start the music and bring the animated scene to life
The music will play as long as the button is being pressed and provided the spring controlling the musical movement is not completely unwound


Setting the alarm

Pull out the sided crown and turn it in a clockwise direction until the hand indicates the desired time.
Push the crown back into its original position
When the alarm goes off, the music will play for about one minute
when the music stops, the musical movement must be wound up again in readiness for subsequent use
If you do not wish the alarm to go off on the following day, pull out the sided crown, turn it in a clockwise direction until the hand indicates the present time and push the crown back in


A Charles Reuge pocket watch is a mechanical instrument. The more it is used, the better the quality of the sound it emits

To ensure optimum performance, we recommend winding the watch and musical movement every day
