Question about Watches

1 Answer

Since I've had my battery changed at a jeweler's, my TechnoMarine Cruise 3 Hands Quartz day rotates over in the middle of the afternoon and not at midnight-ish. How can I fix this, or can I?

Three hand quartz, with day and date facet.

    Oh, and also...I cannot rotate the day at all beyond the current day! Meaning, I can't change it back to the day before or the day after!

Should i pull the crown to save battery if i store my quartz watch for a few months


I don't think storing a watch with the crown out accomplishes much. That I am aware of, pulling the crown out does not break the electrical connection between the battery and the watch. At least in looking at quartz movements, I don't see any electrical apparatus that insulates the crown in any way so that it could act as a switch. I think that in quartz watches that hack, pulling the crown out mechanically disengages or interferes with the drive train, but it doesn't stop the oscillator or stepper motor from running.
With quartz movements, at least those I have seen the internals of, (most ETA and ISA designs, some Rondas, a few Seikos), pulling the crown to the setting position does one of two things:
1) On better, jeweled movements - it breaks contact between the coil and battery, thus stopping the motor. The oscilator continues to be powered, but most of the current consumption is from the motor. These pulling the crown out does save battery life. Or,

2) On cheaper non-jeweled movements - it blocks the rotation of the second hand gear, and stalls the motor. These are observable by a "twitchy" second hand when the stem is out. This method actually kills the battery faster, as a stalled electric motor draws more current.

My watch loses 2-3 minutes a day even with a new battery. Is there an adjustment I can do?


No unfortunately there is not! you have gone as far as you can go by changing the battery. The problem lies in the timing module that houses the quartz crystal, it vibrates at a certain frequency that is critical for keeping time. This will require a jeweler who specializes in this type of repair to address the situation.

I have a Techno Marine diving watch. It just stopped. How do I best replace the battery. Myself? Or do I need to send it somewhere? Cebron


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
NEVER attempt to replace a battery on a diving watch yourself. It will break the seal.
You will need to send back to Technomarine or take to a registered Technomarine service center.

I Have a problem with my Technomarine ABS05. There is changed a battery by someone. but the watch doesnt work. I removed the back and some oil came out. where can i find that sort of oil? How can I change...


Hi,

Oil should not come out of a watch. There just isn't that much oil in a watch to have it dripping out.

Are you sure it wasn't water? I can see where moisture could have gotten inside the watch if it was not sealed properly after the battery change.

The fast mall battery change places, jewelers and mart stores do not hire people that are trained to change batteries properly. We have a love hate relationship with those places. We love them because they keep us in business with all the watches they damage. We hate that they are in the business of replacing batteries in the first place because of how many watches they damage.

If you had one of those cheap battery stores replace the battery most likely they did not reseal your watch and it got water inside. This water will cause the problems you have now with your watch.

You will need to have a qualified watchmaker repair your watch.

Hope this helps,

Ken

How does the swiss eta g10.211 quartz chronograph work


Hello,
I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking how this particular quartz movement operates?

All Quartz movements are pretty much the same operational wise. They can vary greatly in materials used for construction and number of jewels.

At it's basic a quartz watch uses a piece of quartz crystal called a transistor oscillator to vibrate a tuning fork. This vibration is a is brought down by micro processors to a meaningful number then converted into mechanical energy trough the movement and hands.

In the case of a chronograph it means more internal gears and jewels.
Although this is a good movement it is the low side of middle of the road.

The G10.211 is an analog display of hours and measured time. These include hours, minutes and a small jumping second as 6 o'clock. Mechanical date and counters for 1/10 second, 60 seconds and 30 minutes with "ADD" and 'SPLIT" functions. Operated by 2 push buttons.
It has 6 jewels.

If you want to know something more specific please just ask.
Hope this helps.

HOW TO CHANGE DATE


The Skagen watches have  two-step stem; fully pulled out will change the time and partially pulled out will change the date (only goes one way so try turning it counter-clockwise or clockwise - I forget which is correct).  It's easier to find the date length by extending it all the way and then go back toward the case.  It won't change the date if you run it through a 24-hour cycle - you have to do the half-way thing.  Hope this helps.
