Read our frequently asked questions
Are Etive Watches good quality?
Always. We provide affordable luxury watches without compromising on quality. We only use 316L Stainless Steel – otherwise known as Surgical steel – it is commonly used for making surgical instruments as it offers unparalleled resistance to corrosion and acids. 316L is regularly used in making specialist diving watches, therefore, all Etive Watches are waterproof to 5 ATM. This means that they are water-resistant to up to 50 metres in depth for 10 minutes. They are suitable for low-velocity and shallow-water activities.
How do I adjust the date on my watch?
For watches with date tracking capabilities adjusting this is a similar process to adjusting the time. However, for changing the date pull the crown out until you feel the first click and then turn to adjust the date. To adjust the time you should pull the crown out and feel two clicks.

What warranty do you offer?

How are you limiting your impact on the environment?
All the cardboard used for shipping and packaging is FSC certified, responsibly sourced and recycled. Vegan leather is used in manufacturing our luxury boxes and at the end of each year we offset our carbon footprint. We strive to be a conscious and responsible company and keep our environmental impact to a minimum.

All of our watches have been specifically designed to fit the majority of adult wrist sizes. Tools needed for adjusting the Tresca collection will be provided in your order. A flat head screwdriver is needed to adjust the Zali collection. Please see our adjustment videos here.
