U could have drained the new battery by tiuching the front and the back with your fingers jewellers use a plastic tweezers. also they sometimes have to be shorted. but if you paid $1,000 for it i would not advise you to do it unless you are sure about it. hope this helps joe

    I have had the watch for a few years and the hands have stopped, I thought it was the battery but the chronograph still works perfectly. What could be the problem?

    You may have two batteries, there are watches with a lithium battery and a not so obvious silver oxide cell underneath. I don't know what watch you have so I cannot tell you for sure if this is the case

    I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...

    If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

    Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

    Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

    Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.

    I have a Movado Eliro Men's Black Dial Steel Watch which I received as a gift about three years ago. It stops running whenever I wear it. If I take it off and let it sit for a few starts...

    It sounds like some portion of the circuitry has 'gone thermal.' As a test, set the watch in a sunny place and allow it to get warm; if it again stops, then the quartz oscillator section has become sensitive to minor increases in temperature.
    This is not a DIY situation since the major part of the circuit will be on one IC and because of size and proprietary nature of it, it will require a pro to remove and replace it.
    As a better watch, it might be worth repairing and I would check the manufacturer's website to see if they offer repairs; some better companies will do this free to protect their reputation.

    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.
    Do not forget to rate, please.
