Hold your watch with fingers and quickly twist your hand back and forth( like you would spin plate back and forth). Watch must be held flat and twists (spins) made around watch axis(centre of dial, where the hands are fitted).
If this doesn't restart the watch- only watchmaker will be able to sort the problem.

Watch stopped after changing time


It may just be a coincidence that the battery is dead at the same time you changed the hours

10 year old Seiko Kinetic (model5M62-0B00) blue face. Last week stopped and after some shaking started again but seconds moved in 2 sec intervals for a few hours. Went OK for a week and again last night...


After 10 years it will be likely that the Kinetic capacitor will need upgrading. Your watch is designed to tick in two second intervals to tell you the power is very low. The power button will work again when it has some power to show. Yorkshire Watches www,yorkshirewatches.co.uk can do the upgrade for you if your in the UK. Give them a ring.

Rado dia star jubile womens watch stops working when i take it off......put it on and it starts again


I am not familiar with this watch but if it is a mechanical escapement (which ticks), then it could be that the balance wheel has become dislodge.

Has the watch been dropped lately? If it has, then a trip to a watch repairer is needed.

Watch stop ticking


mcdevito75 here, There can be many, many reasons why a watch stops ticking, Have you wound the watch?? is the watch a Quartz?? when did you have it cleaned and oiled last?? how old is the watch??. You can try this, Reset the time on your watch, at times, pulling out the stem and moveing the hands will get a watch to start ticking again, primarily in older watches. If it"s a Quartz watch the battery may be dead. I do some work on watches and I'll be glad to look at the watch for you. Contact me at mcdevito@netzero.com for details.

Hi my tag heuer monaco has stopped working but when i wind it to the correct time it starts again for a while, what is wrong with it


I'm sure its an automatic - next time it stops do not set time just shake it and see it if starts again - automatics need to be worn most of the day to last during the night

Stuck second hand


You need a new battery, as there is not enough power to move both gears. You can send it back to Wenger and get battery replaced or just pop into your nearest watch repair shop and get it replaced. It will cost you $5.oo and will be done in 10 minutes time instead of months of waiting it back from Wenger. Rate me, plz.

The back glass from my cartier fell and broke


The tiny particles of broken glass can stop the watch working. There isn't anythining you can do about it. The only solution is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help as they definetely have all the gear and knowledge to sort it out.

Rate, please.

Watch stopped after not being used for several days


The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.
