SOURCE: Longines watch problem

Some longines watch has built-in battery gauge. When battery is low, the second hand jumps every four seconds. If you have new battery installed and the problem persists then there is a short circuit somewhere that drinks a lot of battery juice.

SOURCE: my watch just stopped working, i take get care of

It definitely is worth to fix. But I suspect that all you need is just a battery replacement. Don't forget, that before you purchased your watch, it was laying on dealers shelf for no one knows how long. Battery originally is fitted at Tag Heuer's workshop in Switzerland, and nobody was replacing battery when you bought the watch, so, it may have been in the watch for a year or even more before watch was sold to you.
Rate me, plz.

SOURCE: I bought this watch 1.5 years back.I have started

On average, I've found that analog wristwatches that use a silver oxide (or alkaline) battery last about a year after a fresh battery has been installed. Digital watches, because they have no moving parts, will typically last longer on a set of batteries if you're not using the alarm or backlight function. Watches that use lithium batteries generally last two years or more between battery changes.

Based on your model watch, I would guess that your battery has run down too far to power the movement. A fresh battery will probably fix your watch. Hint: in the future, if you aren't going to wear your watch for a while, pull the stem out into the "set" position. That will stop the movement and extend the life of your battery. When you want to wear the watch, simply set the time (and date, if you have a date window) and push the stem back in.

SOURCE: I've not worn my watch in 7 years. I did not think it had a battery. It charged from movement. I tried to wear 2 days and still it does not work.

It probably needs a good cleaning and lubrication. This can be done at any watch repair shop, even the ones they have in Sears department stores, if you have no specialty shops in your are.

Fossil AM-3539 The watch has 2 batterys. one operates the changing face the other the watch movement. I replaced both batteries and now the face doesn't change. How do I re-set it?


Please note that many Fossil kaleido watches, especially the sports variety actually have THREE batteries. Two run the animation and one runs the time. The time one lasts much longer, usually a few years, but is smaller and buried a little deeper so you could overlook it if not paying attention. The two kaleido batteries are very visible and usually placed side to side. Pay attention though as for some of the watches those two batteries are set in the same way ( both positive sides up) while others, especially the sports variety have one battery positive side up and the other negative side up. It is important to replace them the same way or the watch will not work

How to restart my casio module no 2271 watch


mcdevito75 here, I'm figureing you"ve changed the battery, Pressing the MODE button should re-start your watch. If you didn"t change the battery and your watch just stopped, try pressing the MODE or any button to re-start the watch. If nothing, change the battery and repeat the above instructions.

Your battery is running low and should be changed soon.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

I changed the battery in my fossil watch and the cell strap got slightly bent and now the watch isnt working. Is there a certain part on the strap that needs to be touching either the battery or some other...


Generally if the watch has a cell strap then yes, it should be contacting the plate of the movement. Are you sure that you put it back the way it was? You should also be careful that the negative contact remains in a position to contact the bottom of the battery.

There are a few things that can go wrong with this battery change including the contacts and strap. You may have also scratched the coil and that would stop it from running. You will also not be able to reseal this watch and you chance it not being water resistant anymore and voiding your 12 year warranty. I suggest going to a watch maker/technician and asking them to take a look at your battery installation. Then ask them to change the rear seal and pressure test the watch to the water resistant rating on the watch. This particular model is rated to be a dive watch.

New battery and still not working???


There are no mystery at all. If you leave flat battery inside watch for a long period of time, battery may explode or leak. Leakage is happening most often and when it happens it is allmost invisible to naked eye.
However, the leaking solution consists of various chemical solutions and they react with metal, alloy, brass, led and other metal parts of which watch movement is made. This process is called ''oxidation'' and it works like rust on metal. You can see it wth a help of magnifier and it looks like tiny fungus layer all over various metal parts.This layer do not transmit electricity as well.
Sometimes it's possible to repair watch (depending on how much damage has been done), but in my experience few times I came across the situation that new movement replacement was needed.
All watch manufacturers are advising not to leave watches with flat battery in and if not changed for the new one ASAP, get the flat battery out of watch.
All you can do is to find your watch repair shop and ask what's possible to do. Speak to the watchmaker, not the jeweller.
Best of luck with your watch.
P.S. Please note that I am just explaining what the problem is and your rating or feedback should not be based on your negative emotions.
