Sounds like a job for Fossil!

Go to their web site "www.fossil.com" and at the bottom of their page is a menu which includes "store locator".

You have a bad capacitor. You can either try to repair this yourself with a special upgrade kit for about $20 (and maybe screw it up) or pay an expert who will do it right for $67.

For an extra $20 he'll do a pressure test on it to be sure it is water-proof but since this is a pro you really don't need to worry about it on a non dive watch.

It may require rather more than a bit of a shake! Some makers say that you have to swing it gently form side to side for 200-300 times to fully wind up the watch.

I bought one some years ago that didn't work well and I had it cleaned, after which it worked perfectly for years.

If giving your watch the shaking I described above it still does not work, try having it cleaned.

Automatic watches thrive on being used but should run for 2-3 days before stopping.

No work quartz


This watch is kinetic, in that a moving rotor inside the watch powers a rechargeable battery that runs the quartz mechanism. You should not need to attempt to open the watch! It may be that the battery is flat (especially if it's not been worn for a while) - you can try swinging the watch back and forth to charge it (check online for charging instructions for Seiko or Pulsar kinetic watches). If that fails, take it to a reputable establishment for repair.

WHAT IS KINETIC ENERGY


kinetic energy is an expression of the fact that a moving object can do work on anything it hits, it quantifies the amount of work the object could do as a result of its motion.

Fossil blue BQ9089 stop working but the linght still lights up


The light is only powered by the battery. The watch itself has many moving parts and probably has some kind of mechanical issue.

10 year old Seiko Kinetic (model5M62-0B00) blue face. Last week stopped and after some shaking started again but seconds moved in 2 sec intervals for a few hours. Went OK for a week and again last night...


After 10 years it will be likely that the Kinetic capacitor will need upgrading. Your watch is designed to tick in two second intervals to tell you the power is very low. The power button will work again when it has some power to show. Yorkshire Watches www,yorkshirewatches.co.uk can do the upgrade for you if your in the UK. Give them a ring.

I have a fossil 1089 and the automatic machinery stops after being placed on a table within few minutes. Is it just for show or does it charge the quartz cell.


Fossil Twist watches are somewhat odd ducks; there is no connection between the automatic watch mechanism that powers the second hand and the rest of the watch, which is powered by a battery-operated quartz movement. Unlike a Citizen Eco-Drive or Seiko Kinetic, the automatic rotor does not power or charge the electronic side of the watch in any way.

My husband purchased a new PS watch, that doesn't need batteries, but is suppose to stay going by movement. The problem is it stops all of the time if he is not actively moving.


Kinetic dive watches utilize motion, or kinetic energy from watch or hand movement. If there is inadequate movement to keep the watch going.

RECOMENDATION:

1. Involve some much needed physical movement (Physical Training) that will both help the wearer and the watch with the watch being the judge of if he is moving enough every day?

2. Get a battery powered watch.

Number one is a better solution.

Hope this tip helps.

Seconds hand stops moving


1st reason. This means your oscillating weight and paired gears are not generating enough power to charge capacitor, thus not be able to move hand properly. 2nd reason. Capacitor can not recharge itself to full power and needs to be replaced. 3 reason. Seconds or chrono wheel has a mechanical fault developed over the time and needs to be cleaned or replaced. Those are 3 reasons why the seconds hand stops moving in Kinetic watch. Which one is right, you will find out only after visiting watch repair shop, because I can not give correct estimate without seeing the watch myself.
Rate me, plz.

My watch runs too fast: adds appr. 1 minute every 24 hours


That is way too fast for a Seiko Kinetic. There is no adjustment to slow it down. With time of course it might run slower as the gears get dirty. Maybe Seiko will replace the movement, worth asking

Can I use an ordinary button cell in a seiko kinetic


I have been trained by a Master watch maker and I have worked on many Seiko Kinetic watches. Yes the original watches came with a capacitor that is charged by your arm movement. But unfortunately, they seem to only last a few years. All replacements are now done with a Lithium Ion battery that is much better and lasts longer than the original capacitor. This is the correct solution and don't try to use a battery type that is used in other quartz watches.
