Advice 1  Get Started with your LAPS

Every LAPS comes in a case with its serial number and the strap you have picked.

We have designed the LAPS watches so that you can place and change their straps the easiest way. Their length is made to fit to the greatest number of people and can be adjusted perfectly at the buckle.

Advice 2 : Switchable straps

Change the style of your LAPS in no time. To place the LAPS on your wrist, make the strap slip between the lugs on both sides of the watch to remove and replace it!

Advice 3 : Replacing a spring bar

If a spring bar gets away, here is how to put it back on your LAPS :

> Put one end of the spring bar in the notch placed in the inner face of the lugs.

> Press on the free end of the spring bar to place it in the opposite lug’s inner face.

> Make sure that the spring bars are well placed to avoid it to pop out again.

You can now slip your strap to your LAPS and place it on your wrist!

Upkeep

Here are pieces of advice to keep your LAPS fresh!

Batteries

V357/303

Depending on the model, LAPS watches are fitted with either a Swiss or Japanese movement which both need a battery to work.
Those batteries have an average lifetime of 2 years. To replace it we advise you to visit a professional who will have the proper tools to manipulate the watch and insure its integrity.

Straps

Perlon

Most of LAPS straps are made of a braided synthetic material called perlon, which is similar to nylon. So it is very resistant with a lifetime of several decades.
If it gets soiled or loosened, just wash it with soaped water and it will be as good as new!

3ATM

WATER RESISTANT

Your LAPS has a 3ATM water resistance which equals to a 3 bars pressure.
Hence, your watch will resist washing hands splashing and rain, but it will not maintain to be plunged into water.
So think to wear it off before diving or taking a shower!

Spring Bars

2 PIECES

On every watch a spring bar can pop out. But it can handily be replaced by yourself. .
If this issue happens to your LAPS, you can have it replaced by any watchmaker. Else, please feel free to contact us via the contact page of the website and we will send you some replacement ones.
