Left in to dealer to get new battery and new seal

About a week ago,i left my t90.4.496.51 tissot watch in to an official tissot dealer to get battery changed and also to have it sealed.i have owned the watch for less than 2 years.i have been in the sea.swimming pool shower etc. with it on and never had a problem with it. so to my amazement when i went swimming having got my watch back from the dealer there was condensation in the face! i was lead to believe these watches were water resistant for 50 metres! to my horror when i went back to the dealer he said that they were just water resisant for showers washing dishes etc. consequently my watch winder has rusted and needs replacing and the dealer expects me to pay for this! could you please let me know if this watch is totally waterproof for deep water
or is the dealer just winding me up! i was also wondering what a tissot warranty looks it just the little booklet that came with the watch . thank you for listening and can you give me some answers ! yours faithfully sean pilkington ireland

    thank you for replying to my response to your solution it is a screw down crown and it is not the crown which is rusted but the stem which would leave me to believe that he did not screw the crown down firmly after replacing the battery which i believe lead to the rust of the stem. the back of the watch is a screw down back and also on the back plate has 50 metres written on it . also could you tell me is the liitle book that comes with the watch actually the warranty? i bought the watch on a carribbean cruise the royal carribbean line and i still have the receipt and there is 4 months left

    on the warranty thank you

First of all: every Tissot watch comes in a proper presentation box and the booklet is allways proper, nice looking and readable (mostly in black with the Swiss cross on it).
As you were swimming with the watch on your wrist, there is no guarantee anymore unless your watch has the screwdown crown.
This is why your dealer is aking to pay for the replacement.
By the way : crowns usually do not rust- the stems do, and stems are allways screwed into the crown, so, it's not possible to unscrew the stem if the stem is rusty(rust works as welding-unbelievable strong).
About that shower and dishwasher: Don't know why, but all watch manufacturers are making people to missunderstand all those writings.
If you have clear writing on the dial of watch, stating, lets say: 50 meters, then you can be sure- your watch will withstand those 50 meters of depth, and if it's not, you can send your warch back and ask for refund and even a little bit more.
If your watch has the writing: 5ATM- that means you can barely go close to the water, etc.
Please, do not rate me yet, as this is not a solution, just explanation.
If you gonna give me more specific details about your watch, I'll help you to sort it out.

After six years my battery is low, so I took my Tissot Touch back to the shop...

When you need frequent re.Syncronizing of your Touch or after 2-3 year
maybe you need to replace the battery.

you need:
a CR1632 3V Battery (about 2€)
a very tiny screw driver
a very sharp knife

With the knife remove the bottom of yout Tissot, (you do not need to unscrew) it's just a cover to pull up like in this imagedcef0c0d.jpg


Now you can clean with a soft brush & remove the dust.
Use the screw drive to replace the battery,
put back the cover & enjoy

Hi, there. I just purchased a Tissot PRC 17158652 from, brand new. It is running 10 minutes slow every hour. (I have only had this watch for 2 days). Should I return it? Or is there...

Amazon is the selling place for fakes. Take it to a local Tissot dealer or jeweler for verification. It sound like it says Tissot on the outside but says 'made in China on the inside. They will do that for you for no cost. Tissot are a great Swiss timepiece and should be accurate to a minute a month. If it is a Tissot, they calibrate using a gadget that listens to the ticks. They will keep it 24 hours.

My Chinese made Rolex gained 30 minutes a day. I see a pattern :>)

This one?

It has had a new battery but the second hand only kicks. Watch does not run

If all else fails, you should send it to an authorised dealer, who should be able to sort it out for you.

You can find out where your nearest dealer is at the web site "". At the bottom of the page is a menu, click on "repairs".

There is a charge for fitting a new battery (which I know you have already done) but at least if you ask them to do it again you can be certain that it will be working when it comes back!

Touch only works on some functions now . centre touch does not work at all and thermo does not work, cant get the date of course

If you have had the watch some time then the battery might be running down.

Go to a watch shop and have the battery replaced. If this does not solve the problem, then you may have to take it to a Tissot dealer or send it to a repair depot.

If you need to look for a dealer, one can be found by going to the Tissot web site "", from the menu at the bottom of the page select "stores" and fill in your details.

I have a new tissot Prc100 T22268631 watch, but i don't know how to adjust the time and date. What will I do?

The usual way to adjust time and date is to screw out (not pull) the winder and rotate it backwards or forwards. The winder will have two "out"positions, one for the date and the other for the time. (the "screw" for the winder is to improve water resistance).

If you have already tried this and it does not work, then go to the Tissot web site "", locate your nearest dealer and ask for advice.

Alternatively on the Tissot site find your watch under the heading "sport". To view all the watches in a section move your cursor along the dots, this moves the images along to find the one you want.

Select the PRC100 and details of your watch appear and at the bottom of the menu on the left hand side select "user manuals".

Click on "download" on the right and instructions will appear

Tissot T-Touch-Works fine until just about the end of the warranty

I suggest writing to Tissot in both your home country and in the head office in Switzerland. Use both email and paper letters. If you can provide documentation of the attempted fixes that will really help your case. Since you had a history of problems you have every right to ask them to stand behind their product. Perhaps there is a new warranty on the replacement movement, for example. You have nothing to lose except a bit of time, paper and postage. You could even ask your dealer to back you up with this -- he or she will still get paid for the work if Tissot agrees to extend the warranty.
