Question about Watches
The second hand, the small one at about 6 o'clock is moving which indicates your watch is working. the other large hand is not the second hand but the chronograph hand or stopwatch hand. You start it in motion by pushing the button a 2 o'clock. You also stop it this way. The button a 4 o'clock is the button than resets it to zero (12 o'clock). You didn't say what wasn't working. Does this help?

mcdevito75 here, Once any Quatrz mechanism goes, it"s ususlly gone. New replacement Quartz mechanisms are sold but just the mechanism itself could cost $30.00---$70.00 then the labor to have it installed, A Swatch watch is a COLLECTABLE item, it may be worth the expense of a new Quartz Mechanism, spaek with the watch shop about details.

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.
