Are Virtas Timepieces water resistant?


Our pieces are rated to 5ATM. This means they can be submerged while washing your hands etc, but should not be taken swimming or in the shower. Please Note: Our 24 Month Warranty does not cover water damage.

What movement do we use?

There are many great movements available, but we wanted ours to be reliable, so you are never late for your appointments. As a result, we decided to go with a Japanese Miyota movement, which is well known for its consistency.

What type of stainless steel do we use?

We only use high-quality grade 316L Steel. The same low carbon steel is used in surgical procedures and marine applications.

Will I have to pay international Taxes/Duties?

Your order may be subject to import duties and taxes. Please visit our shipping page for more information.

When will my order ship?
