I have this problem too... it's for my gucci 5500M. i haven't tried replacing the battery, but i remember the second hand getting this problem when i had to change the time. i wonder if a small gear broke inside the watch, but the weird thing is that the time still stays on time.

I have Swiss legend challenger and it's new. How do you get the second hand moving.


New or not SWISS use the second hand as an early indicator of the battery state.

My memory is that it starts by skipping seconds...
Then the second hand stops...
Then the watch...

The movement is bad.

If it is INDEED NEW... Take it back & get
yourself a fresh one.

Replaced watch battery on bulova millennia alarm and it skips to two second interval / I need to find out how to program it to 1 second interval

Watches, well most quartz anyway, are programmed to alert it's wearer to the fact that the battery in the watch is growing weak and needs to be replaced. There are watches that use a 2 second split and then there are those, like my Bucherer quartz that hops at 5 second intervals. Remember, just because you put a "new in the package" battery in your watch does not guarantee that it is new by way of battery power. Some batteries go completely dead while sitting on shelves waiting to be sold. For those of you that don't know, take it from a man of experience, never... ever... ever... store loose change and opened, new or used, coin or watch batteries in the same junk drawer. They will combine chemically to cook off the battery cells like a .22 rounds and pieces can fly pretty fast. Have a great day!

My Aquaracer keeeps time, but the second hand skips 4 seconds at a time.

This is the indication that the battery is getting low and should be replaced as soon as possible.

Skips time

If it is not a feature built in to the watch to save power when it needs winding, I would say it has a bad gear wheel inside.
I would go here, join, and ask in the Rolex Forum,
These guys are really knowledgeable.

My echodrive second hand skips 2 seconds the skips 1 second 2 tim

For sure you know EcoDrive watches are powered by light and all advertisements says: you will never have to change the battery. That's right - you will never have to change the battery, because there is no battery as we know. In your watch you have CAPACITOR, and it is the cell (sort of battery), recharging itself from the light consuming plate underneath the dial. Capacitor is not timeless, so, you have to replace it anyway. Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for replacement.

Wenger watch second hand pauses and skips ahead 4 seconds, it's keeping time find. Seems to just have started.

That is a low battery indicator. It will do that until the battery is replaced or is dead. When it does that it means its time to change the battery.

Second hand skips

This is warning: it's time to change the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature and this is how the low battery power is displayed. However, the watch will keep running correctly for about two weeks.
