Question about Tag Heuer Kirium Quartz WL111E.BA0700 Wrist Watch

The seconds hand ticks at 4 secs a time

My Tag Kirium's seconds hand is ticking at 4 seconds a time. Its still managing to keep the time accurately however i am worried that this may effect the watch in the long run or be a signal from the watch that all is not well. Has any one had a simular problem? Or know what this may mean for my time piece? Gavin

Re: The seconds hand ticks at 4 secs a time

Don't whatever you do allow the watch to be sent to Tag, as they are very likely to state that the watch needs a service at a cost of £125 after having your watch for 8 weeks (they charge £40 for a new battery which is bad enough) . This they do all the time and seems a bit if a scam. They state that the internals need cleaning by their specialists. Lets just think about this. A hermetically sealed watch to 200 meters has got dirty inside! They said this to me and so I asked for the watch back. They had removed the back of the watch, so I had a look inside and in the intervening weeks the run down battery had corroded. Luckily the terminals are gold and resistant, so I replaced the insulating disk which had corroded with a disc of thin plastic from a water bottle label and bought a battery for £1.36 and all has been dandy ever since. If you are concerned to do the same, an independent watch specialist will change the battery and repressurise for between £25-35

My omega deville ladies prestige quartz is losing time. There is no second hand on the watch and the minute hand seems to tick every 10 secs or so. It has just had a new battery replaced by omega...

Yes. The minute hand ticking every 10 seconds is normal. Losing time is either battery or a movement malfunction. Only a trained watchmaker (or presumably Omega) can determine which. Take it back to Omega

If its a quatz movement - could it be that your battery needs replacing? This is a feature of my Tag 6000 so I assume yours is the same.

My tag professional ticks over every 4

Your battery is running low and should be changed soon.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

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 movement

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.
