Hi, I have a Cartier Roadster chrono and I have not worn it for at least 5 days. I went to wear it today and it has stopped working - after wearing it for about 10 mins it began to work - is this right? Does it not have a battery? Thanks

I was just given an older - 1996 Cartier Santos 18K & SS automatic watch - Two questions - I am using a watch winder on the days that I am not wearing the watch is that advisable? How do I...

The watch should have two position on the crown , first position should be for the date second for the main hands.
be careful not to push the button with the crown pulled out as this may alter the hand settings on the chrono.

Roadster not winding properly?

Since the watch has a quartz movement, no winding is needed.

If your watch has stopped, return it to Cartier to have it replaced.

The watch stopped running. It is an automatic watch.

Automatic watches will stop running if not worn for a few days.

Did you leave the watch off for more than 2 -3 days?.

If you did, then it can be restarted by either winding it using the crown wheel (may not be possible) or by holding the watch level and swinging it gently from side to side for a few minutes. (There is a weight inside which rotates with the motion of the wearer to wind it up- so don't swing it very rapidly).

If this does not work, then it may be that you have to take it to a dealer to have it examined.

I haven't wear my cartier for a couple of days and is nor working i wear it for a few hours but still not working what should i do?

Hi , your Cartier is a quartz movement watch and does not need to be winded or worn in order to work. It does though need a battery. This sounds like your battery has died and needs to be replaced. Any jewelery or watch repair store will be able to change it out from the price of 8 -20 dollars please only go to an experienced jeweler though.

My cartier tank francaise watch stopped working after I didn't wear it for a couple days. Do you know how to get it to work again?

If your watch is automatic, then it is self winding and should start if you gently shake it from side to side a few minutes.

Automatic watches do thrive on being worn every day and if left unused will stop after a few days.

If it is a quartz watch, then take it back to the vendor and ask them to fix it.
