Commander | User Manual

The Sherwood Commander has an automatic movement. The Miyota is a high-beat mechanism (28,800 bph) with a 42-hour power reserve and an accuracy tolerance of -10 ~ +30 per day.


What is an Automatic watch?

An Automatic Watch is a self-winding mechanical watch that does not require a battery. When worn daily, the movement of the wearer's wrist causes the mainspring to wind progressively, eliminating the need for manual winding. To start your automatic watch, you can swing it from side to side for 30 seconds. Alternatively, unscrew the crown to position 1 (see Fig 3), then wind it clockwise. Ensure the crown is re-screwed into its original position.

Diver’s Scale

The Diver’s Scales is the watch’s turning bezel, it allows the diver to determine their submersion time in easily observed minutes (and the rest of us to time pretty much whatever we’d like). The traditional bezel has a number or pip sequence starting at 12 o’clock, which is then rotated to the minute hand to create a timer scale. The Commander has refined this process; the numbers/pips have been replaced with timer bars (see Fig 2) for a more elegant look. You can turn the bezel to whichever position you find most pleasing, but to use as a timer, orient the edge of the first bar to the minute hand. Each bar denotes 5 minutes for a total timer scale of 20 minutes.

Setting the time

  1. Unscrew the crown, and it will pop to position 1

  2. Pull out the crown to position 2. The watch stops.

  3. Turn the crown until the hands are at the correct time.

  4. Push the crown back into position 1. The watch will begin running again.

  5. Re-screw the crown back into the original position (This must be done to maintain water resistance).

Water Resistance

The Sherwood commander has a water resistance of 200m, making it suitable for swimming, high-impact water sports, and scuba diving.
