I guess you never overhauled your watch.Every mechanism has it's limits - so does the watch movements. Your watch has ETA Swiss made mechanical movement which is very good and reliable, but you have to take care of it from time to time. Mechanical movements are designed to last almost forever if they are looked after and yours isn't an exception. Bring it down to the local watchmaker and ask to overhaul it. It will run as new again and will not let you down. It is recommended to overhaul mechanical watches every 4-6 years. If this will be done, your watch will happily tick-tock on your grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand children's wrist and they will remember you with a few good words and respect.

Tissot lelocle is loosing too many seconds a day and second hand jumps several times between second 10 and 25. Is there anything broken?


take it back for a warranty inspection / repair or refund
maybe it is not genuine brand but a knock off in which case the manufacturer would like to be told about

Tip

Watch glossary: U, V, W, Z.


UNIDIRECTIONAL ROTATING BEZEL
An elapsed time rotating bezel, often found on divers' watches, that moves only in a counterclockwise direction. It is designed to prevent a diver who has unwittingly knocked the bezel off its original position from overestimating his remaining air supply. Because the bezel moves in only one direction, the diver can err only on the side of safety when timing his dive. Many divers' watches are ratcheted, so that they lock into place for greater safety.
UNIVERSAL TIME
The mean solar time of the Greenwich meridian, counted from noon to noon, Often confused with the mean time notion.
VARIATION
In horology the term is usually referred to the variation of the daily rate, i.e. the difference between two daily rates specified by a time interval.
VIBRATION
Movement of a pendulum or other oscillating bodies, limited by two consecutive extreme positions. In an alternate (pendulum or balance) movement, a vibration is a half of an oscillation. The number of hourly vibrations corresponds to the frequency of a watch movement, determined by the mass and diameter of a balance and the elastic force of the balance spring. The number of vibrations per hour (vph) determines the breaking up of time (the "steps of a second hand). For instance, 18,000 vph equals a vibration duration of 1/5 second; in the same way 21,600 vph = 1/6 second; 28,800 vph = 1/8 second; 36,000 vph = 1/10 second. Until the 1950s, wristwatches worked mostly at a frequency of 18,000 vph; later, higher frequencies were adopted to produce a lower percentage of irregularities to the rate. Today, the most common frequency adopted is 28,800 vph, which assures a good precision standard and less lubrication problems than extremely high frequencies, such as 36,000 vph.
WATER RESISTANT or WATERPROOF
A watch whose case is designed in such a way as to resist infiltration by water (3 ATM, or atmospheres, corresponding to a conventional depth of 30 meters; 5 atmospheres, corresponding to a conventional depth of 50 meters.)
WHEEL
Circular element, mostly toothed, combines with an arbor and a pinion to make up a gear. Wheels are normally made of brass, while arbors and pinions are made of steel. The wheels between barrel and escapement make up the so-called train.
WINDING STEM
Element transmitting motion from the crown to the gears governing manual winding and setting.
WINDOW
Aperture in the dial, that allows reading the underlying indication, mainly the date, but also indications concerning a second zone's time or jumping hour.
WORLD TIME
Additional feature of watches provided with a GMT function, displaying the 24 time zones on the dial or bezel, each zone referenced by a city name, providing instantaneous reading of the time of any country.
ZONE
Small additional dial or indicator that may be positioned, or placed off-center on the main dial, used for the display of various functions (e.g. second counters).
ZODIAC
Circular belt with the ecliptic in the middle containing the twelve constellations through which the sun seems to pass in the course of a year.

Does the Tissot PR516 T044.417.21.051.00 use a battery? My second hand is not moving when i start the timer and the night vision is terrible.


Yes, it does require a battery. I believe a 394 is the correct one to fit, but I'd suggest you took it to a professional rather than attempt a battery change yourself. I hope this helps.

The tissot visodate watch is automatic not battery driven.


I would not wind the watch manually. I also have a Tissot. If you cannot wear it often enough to keep it going, you can purchase a watch box that is made for self-winding watches which will turn the watch periodically in order to keep it wound.

Tissot prs 516 will not wind. doesnt work. Could it be overwound? I ride a motorcycle. Would the vibration overwind it?


This watch is described as "quartz chronograph", so it is not a self winding watch.

Go to http://www.tissot.ch/?mod_collections/action_getsubfamilies/colid_0002/famid_0012/refid_T044_417_27_031_00 for a description of the watch.

If it has stopped working, cold the battery be dead *have you had it for more than a year)?

Don't know how to remove the links on my prs200


mcdevito75 here, Best Bet look for a small watch repair shop in your area to save money on cost. You"d need a special tool called a link remover tool available on ebay but you can also wind up destroying the band, and a tissot band is expensive, let the shop remove the links.

Tissot is Swatch. They do not sell parts! You need to contact the company OR where you purchased the watch.

T button broken


The manufacturer? Maybe watch repair shop can order it for you? Make one from crazy glue and cast?
