SOURCE: The second hand of my Tissot watch T870/970 starts and stops.

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

SOURCE: Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.

The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.

I have a Waveceptor 3353. If I change time zone I can usually set the watch to show ,say, Paris time both digitally and in analogue. When I try to go back to my home time zone, London, the second hand...


If you cannot find the automatic way of setting the hands, you can manually reset the analogue hands by pressing the mode button until you reach the "HS" mode and using the 2 or 4 o'clock buttons to adjust the hands.

I have a Casio Wave Captor 4757 WVQ-142E and after the change in time this fall I can't seem to set the time correctly. I am in Paris, so GMT +1, however it is 10:30 and my watch reads 3:03. I have reset...


I sympathize, it took me ages to work this out - I had the same problem having had the battery replaced in my watch which only lasted 18 months...the irony was that my previous watch was still working & set to the correct, time date etc!

The following instructions are for the Casio Wave Ceptor 4757 WVQ-142E, the official Casio instructions are available at the following:

http://www2.casio.co.jp/manual_pdf/wat/en/pdf_search.php?MODULE=4757

For the extra information Casio neglect to tell you in the manual, read the following:

First, the watch needs resetting. To do this you need a watchmaker's screwdriver, remove the back (4 screws - obviously, you do this at your own risk), remove the thin plastic cover to reveal the battery.

On my watch on the battery cover it says to reset the watch, get a pair of tweezers & connect the battery back to the negative (marked -) plate for about 2 seconds, thus forming a circuit.

The watch stops, the screen goes blank for about 30 seconds, replace the plastic cover , back & screws.

Wait until the watch has picked up the correct time signal, the digital part will show the correct local time, the analogue screen won't at this stage.

Set the watch to the desired time zone that you require or HS (Home Setting).

Then press button "C" (bottom left) to scroll through until "HS" is displayed on the screen, then press button B (top right) for about 5 seconds until it flashes "OO" in the screen, then press the A (top left) button down & to reset the analogue time (so all 3 hands are pointing up) to 12 O'clock, it has to be set to 12 so the watch will recalibrate itself, if it is not set to 12 O'clock, it won't work! - sadly Casio don't tell you this bit in the manual....& of course this is really obvious to us mere mortals!

Now that you have aching hands & repetitive strain injury, press the B button (top left) to exit the (watch) hand setting mode & the watch will now wind the hands by itself to the correct analogue time, (or in theory it will, it took three attempts to set my watch).

Yes, for the record Mr Casio, if you hand a watch to someone & tell them to set it to the correct time, they will set it to the current local time (assuming that it is not 12 O'clock) & as opposed to 12 O'clock by default!

This is not rocket science, if your company is able to make & market a radio controlled watch which is in theory accurate to one second in a million years because it is controlled by the Rugby atomic clock, you'd think that the instruction department could write some decent instructions!

Hopefully this solved the problem!

The movement on the second hand is jumping every 5 seconds instead of every second, however the time is still correct.


Many high end quartz watches have a feature called the EOL or end of life indicator. This causes the seconds hand to jump 2, 3 or 5 seconds depending on the make of watch when the battery life is low. The watch will continue to keep accurate time until the battery dies completely. So, when you see your seconds hand jumping multiple seconds it is time to get a battery.

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.


You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.

I have an Invicta watch Model #6193. My question is does the second hand supposed to not move? And how does the power reserve work on this particular watch? My second hand doesnt move. I wondering is this...


As to the power reserve.....It's just there to give you an estimate of how much power is left in your battery. As far as your question about the second hand.....My guess is that you are looking at the hand for the GMT function (which stands for Greenwich MeanTime...Greenwich is a place in Great Britain where the prime time zone is located, but most people just use this function as a second time zone). Can you confirm or deny that my supposition is correct or not? (in regards to you thinking the GMT hand was the second hand?? Use clarification request if I am mistaken and when you explain again what you need answered, please also post whether or not the watch is keeping correct time or not. Thanks!! and Best of luck to you!

My Wittnauer is jumping every 5 seconds


Your watch is fitted with EOL feature and let you know about insufficient battery power by moving seconds hand by 2-5-second increments. You have about two weeks time to change the battery from the EOL engagement or your watch will start to malfunction or even stop. In this case you will have to reset your watch after battery replacement. EOL = End Of Life (relates to battery only). Jumping seconds hand means it's time to change battery.
Rate me, plz.

Second hand sweeping five second increments


Yes, it is sign for time to replace the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) device. This device forces the integrated circuit board to move seconds hand in 2 - 5 seconds increments when the battery power level is less than necessary for smooth running of the watch movement. At the same time the timekeeping of the watch is not affected and it will still keep good time for about 2 weeks.
Rate me, please.

Second hand doesn't move for each second


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.
