There can be hundereds of causes why your watch isn't working properly, so, I'll not name them.
One is clear- without help of skilled watchmaker your watch will NEVER work properly.
NOTE: It may sound very strange, but mechanical watches do NOT like to be left without job.
Next time you decide to leave mechanical watch aside for long time- do not forget to wind it up once in a 2-3 days even if you are not wearing it.
This will help to prolong watch movements life and keep timekeeping steady and accurate.

My watch wouldn't start ticking after sitting for a few months. I wound it up completely, initiated the stop watch function to see if I could force movement there but it did not work. I wound up dropping it from 8 inches onto my headphone cables to soften the blow and that did the trick. It took about 3 drops on the face of the watch to get it going again.
Boom.

I recently bought an invicata 8926A. It looks great, but I'm having some trouble winding it. When I wind it by moving it round and round for a few seconds, it runs for a while. But when i rest my...


This is certainly not normal. I had an automatic watch and because I wore it daily, I was unaware that is need any special treatment.

Automatic watches usually run for 2-3 days before stopping (if fully wound) and thrive on being used. My automatic watch was unsatisfactory when I bought it (new but very cheap) and I had it cleaned and it gave years of excellent service after that- perhaps that is your problem. I suggest that you contact their service center for advice.


If your watch is new then you should register it on their web site (go to http://www.invictawatch.com/invicta/services) and send it to them for repair.

If it is out of warranty, then you will see a price list on the above page (this is very unusual!) which will give you an indication of what you may have to pay to get it fixed.

MY INVICTA IS AN AUTOMATIC WATCH. I'VE TURNED THE CROWN SEVERAL TIMES BUT WITHIN MINUTES THE SECOND HAND STOPS


If hand winding does not work then try waving it gently from side to side for 100-200 times (yes! that is what some makers recommend).

Since self winding watches thrive on use, it is best to wear it daily to keep it functioning.

How do I change the date on my invicta divers watch


The answer to your specific question is the 2nd instruction below...I've also included two other settings:
Here are the 3 main crown positions you need to know once you unscrew it from its locked down position:
1) unscrewed, it can be manually wound, in one direction [clockwise}...20 to 30 half-turns seems to be good to get it through the night.
2) then, pulled out one small stop, the date can be advanced by turning the crown towards you (ie, counterclockwise)
3) pulled out one more stop, the time is adjusted by turning the crown.
I hope this helps!

New automatic watch keeps stopping


You can wind this watch until it is snug. If it does not continue to run during normal wear then you should have the watch looked at. The swing weight or main spring maybe malfunctioning. If you can return it under warranty that would be best.

Problem winding a Invicta Skeloton Mechanical Stainless Watch


The Tag Heur repair center says an automatic watch must go through an "initiation" process. They recommend winding manually 40 revolution of the crown clockwise. You must wear an automatic watch at least eight hours per day. Repat the initiation if the watch is not worn for 20 hours or so.
