FAQ

  • How do I start my watch?
    To start your watch, gently unscrew the crown, pull the crown out to the second position, set the correct time, push the crown in (do not screw it in yet) wind it 10 full turns and then gently push in while you screw the crown back in.
  • Is my watch waterproof?
    Your watch is water resistant, rated and tested to a depth of 330Ft. Please make sure your crown is screwed in all the way to ensure accurate water resistance.   
  • Can I shower or go in a hot tub with my watch?
    Typically we do not recommend submerging any watches in hot water. Although the watch is water resistant, some condensation can build up under the glass if subject to super hot water temperatures.  
  • Why the name Archon?
    The word itself means "ruler" in the Greek language. We wanted our watches and their wearers to be the rulers of the sea.
  • What does Serial Number 1 mean on my Seafarer?
    Similar to the way literary figures honor a first edition, Serial Number 1 commemorates pieces produced within a specific timeframe. For the Seafarer, Serial Number 1 marks the production date between Dec 2018 and May 2019.

  • When was your company founded?

  • Who is the owner of Archon Watches?
    Archon watches is owned and operated by Blacklist Brands.
  • Do you sell any other band options or leather straps?
    Not at the moment. We will be looking to add some leather straps and other band options to our site in the future.
