SOURCE: Mens Relic watch stopped working after battry change

I suggest that your watch has an oxidized contacts and electricity can not reach the movement.
Do as folloes:
Take out the batttery,
Clean (scrape) all battery related contacts till they are shiny (use hardened steel needle for that),
Use the dust blower to get rid off any tiny dust and dirt particles after cleaning,
Refit the battery back.
Now your watch should work again.
If all written above do not help, then there is a problem with your watch and you will need the help of the watchmaker.

SOURCE: automatic watch not working

I would suggest you do the following........

Pull the bezel out to the first notch then wind the it back and forth for a couple of minutes then that should be it.

How do i know this. I have had a Roadster for a 6 years and just found this out yesterday.

Enjoy the watch.

Hello!
Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".

mcdevito75 here, The answer is no, Rolex watches do not operate with a battery. Most Rolex watches are Automatic winding with the motion of your wrist / arm. Of course if you leave your Rolex on the dresser for say 30 hours, it will run down, simply hold the watch in your hand and with a gentle rocking motion say from 6--to 12 O'Clock for about 30 seconds, this will give your automatic Rolex an initial wind up, from there you just wear the watch and it will continealy wind itself. You may also have the non automatic Rolex in which case you would have to wind it dailey. If your Rolex will not run at all no matter what you try, Check out the repair service directory here at fixya, bottom of the page click on repair service directory then watches.

Rolex st6 23zuan original or fake??


This is the hint regardless of Rolex. Look at the second hand and watch the motion! Does it sweep or tick? If it ticks it is battery operated watch knockoff.
Rolex is a self winding watch thus the second hand sweeps does not click each second.

Watch stops after wearing for a few hours


Self winding watches need motion ( wrist twist) without they can stop. Sometimes just shake your wrist for a few seconds. I purchased a winder box for times I don't wear. ( Amazon)!
it is belt driven winder, rotates watch 5 minutes every hour.

Relic watche zr11853 automatic is not working. No movement in the skeletal innards but the dial works if pulled out. There shouldn't be a "battery correct?


the RELIC ZR11853 is an automatic movement (spring) you have to rotate the crown to wind the spring,
the Automatic part is, when its worn on the wrist, the movement of your arm swings a small weight in the watch that winds the spring.

Please stop telling people Rolex watches don't tick.


Yes, absolutely correct , all automatic watches tick and the fake Rolexes just tick a bit slower so it is more visible.

I have model fs-2919 would like to know what the other dials are for i dont have the booklet thanks for your help


The three small dials on this watch are all part of a "stopwatch" system. The small dial at the 12 o'clock is for tenths of a second( each half circle completed is one second or 1 whole rotation equals 2 seconds.) the small dial at the 6 o'clock counts a full 60 seconds for each revolution, and the dial at the 9 o'clock counts minutes(one full circle equaling an hour.) when the stop watch is started the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock dials will start at the same time. you will notice that every half turn on the top dial equals one "tick" on the bottom dial. After the first minute of timing the top dial will stop ticking as it is for more precise timing of things that take less than 1 minute. each full rotation of the bottom dial will then equate to one "tick" of the 9 o'clock dial. hence the three dials counting tenths of a second, seconds and minutes. the setting of these dials is fairly easy once you understand the purpose. on the side of the watch there are two buttons(one top and one bottom) with a setting wheel in the center. When in use the top button starts and stops the stopwatch and the bottom button resets the counters. To set the watch simply pull the center wheel away from the watch all the way(2 clicks) set your minute hand and hour hand and then tap the bottom button repeatedly until the small dials all line up straight up. once that is done push the center wheel button halfway into the watch or one click to set the date. then simply push the wheel the rest of the way in and voila!!! hope this answers some questions

The watch stopped running. It is an automatic watch.


Automatic watches will stop running if not worn for a few days.

Did you leave the watch off for more than 2 -3 days?.

If you did, then it can be restarted by either winding it using the crown wheel (may not be possible) or by holding the watch level and swinging it gently from side to side for a few minutes. (There is a weight inside which rotates with the motion of the wearer to wind it up- so don't swing it very rapidly).

If this does not work, then it may be that you have to take it to a dealer to have it examined.

Watch stopped after not being used for several days


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.

How to set the time on relic watches


I had to go to the Sears counter to fix mine. The sales person had to use TWEEZERS to pull the serrated knob up. He had to really work at it. Once it is pulled up you can twist the knob to set the time and then push the knob back down. What a stupid design.
