It is a feature of this watch, it is referred to as the end of life (EOL) feature, it is a way of letting you know its time to change the battery before it dies to the point where it cannot keep time anymore

On my Luminox 3051 BO watch, the second hand (showing seconds evolution) does not match exactly with the marks all around the watch. Regards Robert


Sorry Robert but it is likely you will have to accept and get used to it. The movement's seconds hand is just not calibrated to the exactness the dial is printed in. Notice as your hand moves it sometimes lands on a marker and gradually stops lining up and then as it reaches another part of the dial it will start lining up again. However it never is consistent as to what markers it lines up with. Lots going on behind the scenes (in your movement) that is inherent in battery powered movements.

I HAVE A LUMINOX 3100 I THINK IT LOOSES TIME IS THIS A SIMPLE FIX?


If any battery operated watch starts losing time or displaying the incorrect time, this is usually indicative of a battery going bad and needing replacement. My Luminox 3100 started lagging in time and I noticed that the second hand would intermittently stop. I also have a Suunto Vector (Digital) wrist-top computer and the times along with the compass, altimeter, light and alarms all started to act crazy and all it happened to be was the battery being run down. Coincidentally the Suunto has a battery gage that only appears and flashes during low battery charge.
BL: Try the simplest thing first, change your battery. Please be very careful not to break the O-ring on any watch that's waterproof/resistant as this will render the protection useless. Also if your watch is still under a manufacturer or vendor's additional warranty, get them to change it as not to void your warranty. 'Hope this helps!

Secound hand jumps every four secounds,but watch keeps correct time.


It may be that the battery is running low. Have you had the watch for some time?

(Other watches use a similar behaviour to indicate low battery).

Watch second had is not consistant on how the second hand moves - it still keeps good time is that a low battery issue


If you second hand is ticking in stutter steps, in other words it hesitates 2-3 seconds then quickly steps forward, and your watch is still keeping correct time that is an EOL (end of life) feature...your cell has become very low and it's the watchs way of telling you to replace the battery. Good luck :)

My second hand moves out of sync as well


Sometimes ticking like how you described is a sign of low cell, bad circuit board or dirty gears...or any combination of these..also in this style Luminox sometimes the second hand is a bit long and will catch or rub on the traser ring causing it to slow down, stutter or stop all together...you should take it to a reputable jeweler and have them diagnose it...good luck :)

My Luminox (one of the original navy seals model)is losing time. Can I adjust it, and how?


there's really no way to adjust this problem...unless the watch has been severly jarred or damaged in some way it is most likely just a low or dead battery..if it has been damaged only a watchmaker would be able to replace the faulty gears or parts
