Yes it's the battery. Please make sure to take it to someone QUALIFIED This watch requires that all the gaskets be replaced and pressure tested at the time you have the battery replaced

SOURCE: Swatch Irony Battery replacement will not work

mcdevito75 here, I am thinking your watch ran fine before the battery change. It sounds like the new battery is not makeing good enough contact, you can try, removeing the battery and cleaning the contacts in the watch carefully with a Q tip, dip the Q tip in anything containing alcohol cologne, rubbing alcohol, perfume wet the Q tip good, then sqeeze most out of the Q tip as not too saturate the battery contacts, also clean the battery itself, the oil on your fingers could give it a poor contact on the watch. The stop watch section doesn"t take as much battery power as the second hand. You may also be able to jump start your watch also, You"ll need a needle and a magnifier glass, With the back off your watch, right in the middle of the movement, just below where the stem (winder) goes, you"ll just see part of a little gear, this is the hour hand gear, see if you can gently move that gear just a fraction, place the needle between the teeth of the gear and try to move it as gentle as possible then se if the gear will move on it"s own., be very carefull with the movement. Swatch watches are collectables. If you don"t feel comfortable doing the above, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help.

Not able to change the battery!


My husband had to take his watch to a store that carries that watch brand to have his battery changed. Apparently they have a special "key"to take the watch back off.

Second hand keeps stopping


You should really provide more information such as brand/model number but that's an indication of a need for battery replacement for a quartz watch. If that doesn't work, post your question again with more specific information.

Just had the battery replaced on my Wenger Swiss Army watch Model : 7987X/T. The red second needle is no longer moving.. its stuck on the 30 min mark. Watch works fine otherwise. Could not find any info...


If the second hand of your watch isn't moving, but the watch is otherwise keeping time, you most likely have one of two problems. The simpler to fix problem is that the second hand might have come loose from the post onto which it's been fitted. It's a simple friction fit, and a watch technician would simply remove the watch movement from the case and very (very!) gently push down on the seconds hand to re-seat it. If that's the problem, that's all there is to the repair.

A second potential cause for this behavior could be that a speck of dust or crud has gotten into the gears that operate the seconds hand, preventing it from moving. This can easily happen when changing a battery--many watches tend to get somewhat of a buildup of crud where the watch back meets the case. Especially with screw back cases, the process of loosening the back also loosens the crud layer, making it easy for little bits to fall in. If you do have crud in your movement, you're a bit limited in what you can do. Unlike old-time mechanical movements, very few quartz movements are made to be disassembled and cleaned. Instead, a watch repairer may be able to blow some air (not compressed air from a can--that will probably wreck your movement) to try to clear the gears. If that doesn't work, there is a little device that some watchmakers have that runs your watch at about 50 time as fast as normal. Spinning the gears like that can sometimes generate enough force to clear a blocked gear train. I have done this to resurrect several watches whose hands were stuck. However, I was still able to see the "pulse" of the second hand on those watches, even if the hand itself never moved forward.

We have a Carriage watch by Timex that's my mom's (she's in a nursing home). The watch wasn't keeping time so my brother replaced the battery. It was running fine, now it's lost time....


A second hand that pulses but does not advance usually indicates one of two problems: (1) a weak battery that provides insufficient power to the tiny motor that advances the second hand; or (2) a bit of dust or grit somewhere in the watch's gear train that is jamming up the works.
Try testing or replacing the battery. If that doesn't work, some watchmakers can try to blow out (using very gentle air puffs, not cans of compressed air) the watch movement and/or put it on a special machine to try to unjam the gears. It is usually does not make economic sense to perform further repairs on a watch of this price range, though it is also possible to replace the entire movement.

Brand New Watch second hand won't move. won't keep time.


The watch has a problem in the timing module and the second hand won't move (a cog wheel issue) this is clearly a manufacture defect that can not be remedied and should be returned since it is under warranty.

The second hand of my Tissot watch T870/970 starts and stops.


Hello!
Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".
