Watch Safety Clarification
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE PURCHASING YOUR WATCH.
Please note that the advertising claims of our watches as intrinsically safe as it relates to our Sparkies and Original Automatic ranges requires clarification. We have recently been made aware of an error relating to the testing documentation of our Sparkies watch which we are working to resolve.
As a result we can advise that the Sparkies range of watches have passed basic electrical safety testing – for burning and insulation resistance – however, despite the very low energy output, the Sparkies watch should NOT be purchased at this time if you require a certified watch to be worn in hazardous or explosive areas. You can view the documentation here.
Our range of Original Automatic watches do not have official certification but have been cleared as safe for use in flammable gaseous atmospheres by the Queensland Department of Natural Resources & Mines. You can view the documentation here.
