    I have the same problem with my brand new Seiko snac11p1 with a 7t62 calibre in it. The main clock stops running when I lay the watch down. The little alarmclock however stays running and shows the right time. How is this possible? I can't find anything that explains this in the instructions. When I pick the watch up and start wearing it, it won't start running. It only start when I pull out the crown, but then I have to set the time again.

Hi...either the generator is shot or the rechargeable battery...yes, it should run overnight....my guess is that it should run a couple of months without wearing/charging it...I suggest you mail it back to the manufacturer.....d.

My watch delayed every day


Looks to me it needs service when it can't store enough energy to tun through the night.
Sure it is not a battery powered watch? because then it could be the battery needs to be replaced. The colder battery can't deliver enough power to keep the watch running. Within a little time it even won't work even when warm or moving.

My watch stops in the night.But works fine when i wear it.any ideas?


Yes, the Movado is a self winder, and it was designed for the sports active wearer, of which the motion of the wearer's arm provides the power to keep the watch wound. Apparently you are not active enough for the watch to be fully wound, so when you take it off, it will use up all of the stored energy in the spring and stop. many self winders will only store enough energy for 8-12 hours of use and will require constant wearing. You could try wearing it to sleep and see if this is enough to keep it wound.

If you feel that this is not the case for your watch, then you may want to have it looked at by a watch maker

Tag Heuer Tiger Wood Golf WAE1111.FT6004 Watch stops when not worn. Is there a problem


Hi,

An automatic watch needs to be worn, wound daily or placed on a watch winder to keep it going. It is not like a quartz watch that has a battery and can keep going when not worn. A modern automatic watch will run for about 36 - 48 hours on a full wind.

A quartz watch that stops like you describe is in need of a cleaning by a professional watchmaker. When this stopping occurs it is an indication the oils have dried out and the warmth from your body heats them so they are semi liquid again and the watch runs. but when the watch cools again the oils harden and the watch stops.

Hope this helps,

Watch winding is not holding


Two words: Wind it! When any self-winding (automatic) watch runs down from not wearing it you have to manually wind it to get it going again. Once you've done that the movement of your wrist will cause the self-winding rotor mechanism to keep it running as long as you are reasonably active and wear it everyday. Just wind it about 40 turns and you'll be good to go. Oris is a great watch company and you should enjoy it for many years.

Watch stops shortly after any movement


Automatic, or "self-winding" watches get their power from movement of your wrist throughout the day. Unless you're quite active the amount of movement is just about enough to keep it running till the next day. However, if you let the watch run down completely as you did when you were away, there is no reserve power left. The solution is simple: just manually wind the watch and you'll be good to go. To manually wind the watch unscrew the crown as if you were going to set the watch but do not pull it out as would for setting. Wind the watch about 40-50 turns and it will run fine if you wear it every day.

My wifes recently repaired Rolex loses about an


Is it an automatic self wind or wind up? An automatic watch has a weight that winds the main spring and if you wind it by the crown it will not stop. If its one that you wind by hand then the watch should be wound daily at the same time...like right before bed or when she wakes up. Wind gently until it stops. That costly repair should come with a warranty so if she consistently winds daily and still loses time you need to send it back!

If the watch is an automatic then she can gently hold the watch in her hand and rock it back and forth a good 20 times or so and that will give it a good winding! This is a common issue we see at our watch repair business. Some people do not move enough during the day to keep an automatic movement wound. If thats the case then there is nothing ong with the repair, just make sure it gets a good daily wind! :-)

Wrong time


Your watch is an automatic watch which means it winds itself as long as you are wearing it. If you don't wear it for several days it will stop working. To solve this situation buy an automatic watch winder to keep your watch in while you are not wearing it and it will keep the correct time.
