Question about Watches

Relic Watch is running slow

I just bought a supposedly new Relic ZR33659 Ladies Silvertone Dress Watch off ebay. When it arrived, it was running. (It didn't have one of those little plastic things on it to keep it from running).

I set the time on it and it seemed OK at first, but a few hours later, I looked and it was 20 minutes behind. With each passing day it is getting further and further behind. Could a dying battery cause this or did I get a bad watch?

Try replacing the battery.. Did you use Paypal... if the battery doesn't fix it... Contact the seller... ask for a refund (UNLESS - it said "as is - no warranty") .. then Use Paypal's services to get your money back

SOURCE: Tropby radio controlled watch, runs slow, even with new battery

Your watch is need to clean an replaced the old oil in gear shafting that is the common problem of a watch when the old oil is sticky already thats makes the gear moves slowly and your watch is always late . If ever your watch was already clean and replaced new oil and still working slowly then the problem is in the circuit board is near to run out its needs to replaced whole circuit board so its better again. I know this because im a technician in Rolex service center before. Feel free to ask whatever the result.

Hope it may help you;

Regards;

SOURCE: Mens Relic watch stopped working after battry change

I suggest that your watch has an oxidized contacts and electricity can not reach the movement.
Do as folloes:
Take out the batttery,
Clean (scrape) all battery related contacts till they are shiny (use hardened steel needle for that),
Use the dust blower to get rid off any tiny dust and dirt particles after cleaning,
Refit the battery back.
Now your watch should work again.
If all written above do not help, then there is a problem with your watch and you will need the help of the watchmaker.

SOURCE: how to set the time on relic watches

I had to go to the Sears counter to fix mine. The sales person had to use TWEEZERS to pull the serrated knob up. He had to really work at it. Once it is pulled up you can twist the knob to set the time and then push the knob back down. What a stupid design.

I wanted to replace battery in my wife's Relic watch and a little metal part dropped on the table. I don't know where should it be put back. Do you have a manual for watch ZR33471. I would like to fix...


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
First of all, the manual would not help you with the battery. They usually dont have this info in manual. Your best bet is to take your watch to a local jeweler who does watch batteries. I imagine its just the battery strap but they can help you. You may get lucky and they dont charge you if you have the battery.
Best regards. Jewel

I have a Relic ladies watch that I wear all the time and just love. I recently had the pin to brake that holds the watch to the band. The jewelry store repair man had to drill the pin out to replace it...


mcdevito75 here, That pin is called a spring bar and is used to hold the band to the watch, the pin must be frozen in place on the watch, Best Bet is to try another jewelery shop, in the meantime you can put a drop or 2 of cooking oil on the pin just as it meets the watch this may loosen the remaining portion of pin.

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!
