SOURCE: can't get my croton watch to work.

There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:

  1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead battery in them).
  2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
  3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!

Why does my Wave Ceptor WVA-105H work sporadically after getting wet?


Try a new battery. When water got in there it may have shorted the battery and drained it. It may work for a short time and then die. Also put the watch on you car dashboard in the sun to bake it instead of the oven unless you have an electric oven. For electric oven use a thermometer to get temp of 140 F then turn the oven off and put the watch in for an hour.

How to remove the dew on the watch


Dew on the watch happened because of seepage of water when we shower, rain, swimming or fell from shirt pocket into the water...
do not panic first.
this is the solution for while or for long time.
put inside of rice during 5 - 7 hours,
best time for do that is at the night, the time before you sleep and when you wake up your watch is clear back.
if it doesn't change please take it to service center.
good luck : )

Water


You would have to unscrew the back (needs a special tool) and leave it open to dry..then probably have it cleaned. Only a professional watch mender can do this.
BUT Rolex watches are water resistant. It either isnt as Rolex, or you went too deep

Hello , I own a timex iron man triatholon model no t5g691 , the problem is none of the buttons work . they only work when I press them all together to turn it off . I also went recently swimming with it...


this problem occur only if one of the buttons are stuck inside, because you cannot push two or more buttons at the same time unless that you have to reset the watch. 2nd probably the buttons of your watch didnot reached the contact inside, sometimes it needed to be cleaned and had to be lubricated. if still did not work. reset your watch using the reset button inside the watch. i hope this will help you a lot.

I bought a Timex H/R/M and on my first swim workout, it kept slipping out of place. This happened everytime I pushed off the wall to swim freestyle. Any suggestions?


Timex watches are not designed for swimming, snorkel or diving unless it is stated on the watch itself. All the info about water resistance is mend to be when the watch is in still/motionless position submersed in water. If you are looking for the watch to withstand your swimming activities - you have to by any watch with the marking 50 or100 meters at least.

Left in to dealer to get new battery and new seal


First of all: every Tissot watch comes in a proper presentation box and the booklet is allways proper, nice looking and readable (mostly in black with the Swiss cross on it).
As you were swimming with the watch on your wrist, there is no guarantee anymore unless your watch has the screwdown crown.
This is why your dealer is aking to pay for the replacement.
By the way : crowns usually do not rust- the stems do, and stems are allways screwed into the crown, so, it's not possible to unscrew the stem if the stem is rusty(rust works as welding-unbelievable strong).
About that shower and dishwasher: Don't know why, but all watch manufacturers are making people to missunderstand all those writings.
If you have clear writing on the dial of watch, stating, lets say: 50 meters, then you can be sure- your watch will withstand those 50 meters of depth, and if it's not, you can send your warch back and ask for refund and even a little bit more.
If your watch has the writing: 5ATM- that means you can barely go close to the water, etc.
Please, do not rate me yet, as this is not a solution, just explanation.
If you gonna give me more specific details about your watch, I'll help you to sort it out.
