Do you ship outside South Africa?

Do you have women watches?

The watches are designed to be unisex. A medium case size, 42mm, is used to accommodate most wrist sizes. A women range will be launched in the year 2020.

What type of movement is used?

We didn’t look past one feature when designing Nkarhi. With this said, we went with a Japanese Seiko Precision Quartz Movement which is one of the most well known in the industry.

Are Nkarhi watches waterproof?

All Nkarhi watches have a water resistance of 5 ATM and can withstand a brief submersion under water (i.e. hand washing), but should not be taken swimming or bathing.

What type of leather is used?

Our leather straps are made of genuine cow-hide leather.

What type of glass is used?

The glass used for our watches is made of sapphire glass.

Is there a warranty?

Nkarhi has a limited warranty that covers manufacturer’s defects for three years after the original purchase date from an authorized dealer. Basically, if the watch parts or mechanics don’t work properly, and it’s our fault, we will repair or replace your product for free. However, this does not cover any abuse you might put your watch through on your own. The warranty does not cover water damage, normal wear and tear, batteries, accidental glass damage, scratches, strap damage, or theft. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims and service requests, so please keep your receipt.

How do I replace my battery?

All of our watch batteries can be found at any electronic store, as well as most watch repair or jewelry shops. Any watch repair shop or Jeweler should be able to assist you with the battery replacement. We don’t suggest replacing the battery, as it requires some special tools and you could damage the watch.

Swapping and adjusting leather straps.

Nkarhi’s leather straps can be attached and detached with ease by compressing the quick release integrated spring bar at the back of the strap with one’s finger. Align the spring opposite the cylindrical push button lever within the case lug first, and then compress the spring bar with the cylindrical push button lever to slide the pin in between the opposing case lug and release.
