Question about Tag Heuer 2000 Classic WK1113.BA0311 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

The second hand on my TAG automatic jumps in 4 second intervals.

This started to happen recently, and I have not done anything abnormal with the watch - same amount of use, under normal circumstances etc. I have had the watch for nearly 7 years, and it has not done this before.
Should I leave the watch and let the spring completely unwind, or perhaps I should use it vigorously for a while to try to "wind it up".
Very grateful for advice.

This is very strange situation, as usually this occurs in quartz watches with integrated EOL (End Of Life) only and that is a signal for time to change battery.
In your case I can see the only reason- seconds hand somehow became loose and you need to refit it.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask to do the job. It's not a big deal, but requires professional skill.

Second hand not sweeping but jumps at 5 secs intervals. Appears to be keeping accurate time.


When the second hand moves in short jumps rather than a smooth sweep or a second-by-second hop, it means that the battery is about to run out. Usually, with a week or two the watch will stop working altogether. You should go and have it changed as soon as possible.

Second hand doesn't move for each second


Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.

Watch second hand


I had the same problem with my Tag. Same 4 second jump. It's definitely the battery. I'm surprised at only 3 months, but maybe it sat a while in the display case. Mine was over a year and a half.

Second hand on my watch now goes in 5 second intervals


Check the instruction manual if you have one. Tag-Heuer watches move in 5 second intervals to let you know the battery needs replacing. A neat feature. Now you know that you have a real Tag!

Navy Seal Luminox watch second hand problem


It is a feature of this watch, it is referred to as the end of life (EOL) feature, it is a way of letting you know its time to change the battery before it dies to the point where it cannot keep time anymore

This is to let you know that the battery needs to be replaced.make sure that you use a watchmaker that can test and replace any worn case parts so that your watch will retain it's original design water resistance.
