This is a nice looking watch, but it quit working about a month after I got it. I lost the warranty paper and don't know where to send it for repair. Can you help?
The problem is it only has movement for 5 seconds, then I shake it to wind it since it is automatic and it works only for another 5 seconds. There seems to be some loose parts rolling around in the bottom like something came apart inside.

Yeah, it does not say it is waterproof, I have one they are "Water Resistant" to like 165' or some such nonsense. Anyway, if you paid for a warranty you can have it repaired by Diesel, this is the 1st watch I have ever purchased where they ask at the counter if you wish to purchase the manufacturers warranty. Mine was an extra $35 for the warranty. Yours may have been included in the price? If not your choice is deal with the fogging, repair it yourself, or pay a jeweler to repair it properly. You don't necessarily need jeweler's tools to repair it, but it is very easy to gouge the watch without them. New seals are available online. Personally I would take it to a jewelry store that offers watch repair. Your other option is to send it to Diesel, but you'll be paying for shipping/handling plus repair costs without warranty.
To maintain the warranty and ensure that you do not have any problems with the seals. It is recommended to send your watch in to an Authoriozed Polar Service Center. Doing anything else will void the warranty.
it is possible to change the battery yourself or have a watch repair place do it, but you or they will not have the vaccuum sealer to repressurize the seal, and any moisture that gets in there will do damage to the CPU. A little extra tip, when you send in your watch to polar there is a 3 month warranty on that service if anything goes wrong, and it happens quite frequently outside of the system, seen it many times.
All decent watch repairers should issue at least 6 months warranty on their craftsmanship. If the watch repairer can not resolve the problem and your watch is still stopping, you can ask for full refund. Next time save your nerves and time - find on the web where your nearest Omega dealer is and bring the watch to them. It may take quite a lot of time and cost dearer, but you will have your watch serviced at proper Omega workshop and will get original Omega warranty.
Change the battery. If your watch stops ticking, chances are the watch is not broken and the battery simply needs to be replaced. You can purchase a watch battery at your local department store or drugstore. Use the screwdriver to pry the back off the watch and place the new battery in the same place where the old one fit.
If your watch is still not working, determine the problem. If you can hear the watch ticking but the hands are not moving, there may be a gear stuck inside. If only one of the hands does not move, the hand itself could be broken. Once you determine the problem, you can see whether it makes more sense to purchase a new watch or get the old one fixed.
Check your watch warranty. If your Fossil watch came with a warranty that is not yet expired, Fossil will fix your watch if you send it to the company and pay for shipping and handling. See the "Resources" section below to fill out the Watch Repair Form provided by Fossil.com. If your watch strap is broken, however, Fossil will charge you a fee as broken straps are not covered in the warranty.
Check a competing local watch repair store. There are watch repair stores located all over the United States that will repair a Fossil watch if your watch is no longer under warranty or if you do not want to pay the shipping and handling to send the watch to Fossil's watch repair department. Although the watch repair store may not have the exact strap you are looking for, it may offer a replacement strap that is similar to the one that originally came with your watch.
Return the watch to the store where you bought it. If you purchased a Fossil watch that was broken when you purchased it or broke recently after you brought it home, you may be able to return the watch for a refund or store credit. Check with the store's policy before purchasing the watch if you are concerned about returns.
You have to visit any of nearest watch repair shops and watchmaker will do the job for you.All decent watchmakers can repair very many different watch makes,so, no need to find a particular Columbia watch repairer.Type in your browser:WATCH REPAIRS IN (NAME OF YOUR TOWN), and you will find quite a lot watch repair shops. Rate me, plz.
As you lost all the papers , there is no reason to send your watch to any specific repair centre. Just find your nearest watchmakers shop and they will sort the things out. Alternatively you can pop in to any Anne Klein dealer shop and ask to fix your watch. Do not forget to rate, please.
I also have a Prague automatic watch (not the same model) which I purchased in 10/06 and have had it repaired twice. If you purchased the watch new, a little white warranty paper should have accompanied it. If not, you might be out of luck. Anyhow, each Prague has a two year warranty. My warranty instructed me to send the original receipt, a check for $10 (for return shipping) and the watch to Croton Repair; 195 Anderson Avenue; Moonachie, NJ 07074. There of course is no phone number to call them. Make the check out to Croton Repair. The warranty also says they do not guarantee they will fix the watch, but they guarantee they'll send you the watch back if it cannot be repaired. It took about 5 weeks and my watch came back repaired. Unfortunately about 6 months later it broke again, same exact problem (no long self-winds, ticks or keeps time, my watch also has a diamond at each hour, two of which fell out)... I've seen a lot of the issues people are posting seem to be the automatic watches not working. Probably duds, the inner workings seem to be very sensitive.
