    Depending on which movement it can only be wound by wearing. If you put it on and it begins to run your on the right track. If you wear it all day and stay active it will still stop over night more than likely however put it on the next morning and wear it. It should then make the overnight running. The watch cannot be overwound the mainspring is designed to slip at the top of the wind. Hope this helps, gabe.

If it's automatic it means the movement of your wrist keeps it wound up ,but if it's not been worn for long time you can still wind it with the winder, if it still doesn't work it may need to go for a service at the jewelers.

Does the dial have "Automatic" wtitten on it". If it does then it's a mechanical movement. If it has "Quartz" then it requires a battery. If the watch isn't running perhaps it just needs a battery. This may also explain why the pushers aren't working. If it's mechanical the watch needs to be wound before the pushers will work. What are the markings on the subdial.

Hi, this is easy to do what you need is a sharp knife then the back of the watch will have a case on it smaller than the watch you will see its raised and has an edge running all the way round. Sometimes their is a tiny recess running along the top or bottom of this cover this is to put knife into to pry the back off, not all watches have this. If yours dont then get sharp knife and pry the cover off from either the top or bottom it can be tight but get the knife so your putting pressure on to lift the cover up. The cover is only pushed in and it clips in so their is nothing holding it down.
Just keep prying it with a thin sharp knife untill the back lifts off it shouldnt be that difficult but just use thin knife and keep working it so as to lift the back cover off the watch.
This will give you access to the battery and once replaced the back just pushes on by hand push it on hard as this seals it from water and dust.

Move the little battery to the side and lift up on the edge. It will pop out. Don't take the movement out.

Put new battery in pulsa chronograph 100m watch how do I get it working Plz help

You might need a jump start the watch, or cleaning. I usually try using a air dust blower ball to get all the particles that is invisible to the eye, you can do this on the movement and around the battery area. Aftwards try inserting the battery again then pull out the stem and move it clockwise at least 10 times passing the 12'o clock marker. If the watch is not brough back to life you can try one last thing before buying a new movement or taking it to the watch repair shop. If you take it to watch repair shop they might charge you a few bucks to jump start the movement. I hope this helps. Marcelo

1. tends to stop if you are not wearing it 2. tends to stop at particular times ie 12.20 3. can't rewind the time past certain times

Automatic watches will generally run for 2-3 days before they stop.

I have no idea what causes the other problems.

If you want to keep it going while you are not wearing it, you can buy a watch winder, which gives it enough movement to operate the self winding mechanism.

My pulsar watch (maybe 7 years old)runs intermittently. It runs most of the time I wear it and stops when I take it off. I had it cleaned. Cleaning didn't seem to help much.

is it battery or automatic or kinetic. first have battery checked if this still does not solve prob ask repairer for movement exchange instead of service as this way you get a new engine...if its automatic a service should have worked as pulsr use seiko movements wich are very good if its kinetic it needs a new capasitor as these last about 5yrs before the need to replace or attempted recharge.

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.


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.

How do I start my Pulsar watch? The instructions said to swing it side to side for 30 seconds...that didn't work. Checked the battery and it's ok..even exchanged the watch but this one's the same...I...

If you're supposed to swing it, that means it's an automatic or kinetic watch and it charges it's battery using an internal winder that moves as the watch moves. Try wearing it for a while, being mindful of moving your hand, or if that doesn't work try using a watch winder. If none of that works it probably needs a new movement. Take it to your dealer to submit for warranty.

The hour & minute hands on my pulsar nx14-x001 do not move. the second hand quivers, but also does not move. the digital time and other functions are okay. HELP!

Without knowing the model of the watch i would say you need a new battery. It is typical for this style of watch to have two batteries or one lithium battery. In either case the analog movement will drain faster than the digital portion of the watch and will stop working first.

Bought pulsar- no instructions

Go to the pulsar website to see if they have a PDF file with instructions or scour Google with the Y182 etc. information. That info is the movement model number the Seiko website may also have information. Knowing the movement information may link you to instructions. Call or go to Otto Frei website, call them and they may point you to the right direction. They probably sell that movement.
