The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Rado watch stopped working


It sound like a fault. Be careful who looks at it though and what they charge - a complete new quartz movement for most watches, even fancy ones like your don't cost as much as £90 so almost all of what you are charged is labour.

I bought the same watch recently and have the same problem. The hours can be adjusted in the dual time zone by looking up the manual, but the minutes stay put. I can't bring them to blink so that these could be adjusted. Any ideas? I sent a mail to Rado through their website but no answer.

I have a Rado DiaStar watch (with digital display), and the hands are out of synch with the digital display. Is there a way of adjusting the hands independently of the display? or must it be sent back to...


Hears how i do my watch, i have the same watch as you.Just make sure nothing is displayed on the clock face by turning the winder, ie NO digital time, NO daul time, NO alarm, NO stop watch etc, Pull out the winder(crown) and adjust the hands to the time you require by spinning the winder.(Gentley for mins and fast for hours) The digital clock will display wilst doing this, but not change the time.handy if you want to sync both clocks.Push the winder back in at the time to sync and the digital display will go out, then spin the winder again if you want to display the digital features. I hope this helps, please post if it does, Maurice Chevalier- Herts
