You should change the battery, it is the cheapest thing to try. The batteries can be very old before they are installed and could have been in the watch a long time before you got it.

I've had the Avalon EXC talking watch for just a little over a year. A month ago, the battery quit, so I went to a store that had a jewelry counter and they replaced the battery. After just a month, it...

Some of these talking watches have 2 batteries, one for the voice and one for the hands, the one for hands is underneath the talking part. A lot of people don't know this and,just change the top battery. All watch batteries are the same voltage but the better brands tend to last longer, a good Swiss battery is the way to go. The more you use the talking function the more power you,will use

I have a FOSSIL mens wristwatch model # AM3423. I recently had a watch repair person replace the battery. Battery type and charge confirmed. I received the watch used as a gift from a relative who was...

Quartz watches stop working most often for one of three reasons: (1) dead battery; (2) dirt in the gears blocking the train; and (3) a bad crystal. This is the order in which I typically troubleshoot watches.

If the watch isn't working after you change the battery, first check to see that the stem is fully pushed in. A watch movement can shift just enough inside the case that a stem sometimes looks pushed in, but isn't quite in far enough to re-engage the movement. Pull out and push in the stem a few times to see if that changes anything.

Next, assuming that the battery is indeed fine, look closely at the second hand. Is it moving at all, even a tiny bit? Hold the watch up to your ear. Is there any kind of "chunk" sound about once every second? If you can answer "yes" to either of these questions, a speck of dirt has gotten into the movement and is preventing the gears from moving freely. It doesn't take more than a a big spec of dust to cause this. Sometimes, advancing the time will move the gears enough to cause the dirt to fall out. Some watch repair places also have a special machine that spins the hands rapidly to blow out or compact any dirt in the train. It's usually not economically rational to have the movement professionally cleaned beyond this point.

Finally, if you don't hear anything coming from your watch, the battery is good, and the setting stem is pushed firmly and completely into the watch movement, you may have a bad quartz timing crystal. It does happen, and when it does, the only repair is to replace the entire watch movement. Sometimes, that's affordable; sometimes, it just doesn't make sense.

Good luck!

Well, thats a good watch. however, based on the conditions of your watch, probably, its battery is not dead. some of its mechanism were not in place or broken. Repairing it is advisable. Afterall it has no scratches like what you've said. So go for repair men!

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.

My watch is keeping accurate time. The send hand holds for 3-4 seconds then moves the like amount. In other words, instead of moving every second it goes in 4 seconds at a time

It is called the "eol" or "end of life indicator" Not yours! Your battery. Notice the time is still correct. This is a feature some better watches have to tell you your battery is about to go dead.

Battery has been replaced. watch will not work

This isnt uncommon! Depending on how long the dead battery remained in the could be that the watch is running but the hands might not be moving. Chances are thats what the issue is. The problem is that you need to find a watch repair business that has a cyclonic machine. It picks up the "beat" that the magnetic rotor makes as the wheels move inside. It most likely needs a little watch oil and a spin on the cyclonic machine.

We do this countless times everyday! Customer brings a watch in and its not running, we check the battery and its good. The watch oils loose viscosity as the watch ages and it can keep the hands from moving! Another issue is finding a repair company that wont try and sell you a new movement when its not needed! Thats common too! :-( I would check around at different places. If they are honest then they wont try to fix something that isnt broke! :-)

Good luck!!!

I have an AW 150 watch. I looked everywhere for a solution to setting it. I found nothing. It appears that all types of this watch are hard to set. I happened upon the correct procedure for at least setting the watch.

My watch has 4 set buttons that you can push. 2 on each side. Hold the upper right hand button until something starts flashing on the watch. On mine it was the seconds. Then release the button. Now each time you push that button for a very short moment, the flashing part of the watch will progress through each area (minutes, hours, date, etc). When you get to the area you want to set/adjust, use the bottom right hand button to move up/forwards and the bottom left hand button to move down/backwards. When you have fixed one function push the upper right hand button to move to the next function you want to change and repeat the procedure. When you are done, hold the upper right hand button in until the watch quits flashing anywhere and then release the button. Your watch is no longer in the adjust mode. Hope this works for you. It drove me nuts until I figured it out.
