Tropby radio controlled watch, runs slow, even with new battery

I have a Tropby (correct spelling) radio controlled watch. It started to run slow, so I have had the battery replaced, but still it won't self correct, and it is approx 7 - 8 minutes slow. There does not appear to be anyway to adjust the time, other than a small button that advances the watch one hour per press. Can this be fixed, or is it time to throw it away? Watch cost approx £30.00 when new.

Your watch is need to clean an replaced the old oil in gear shafting that is the common problem of a watch when the old oil is sticky already thats makes the gear moves slowly and your watch is always late . If ever your watch was already clean and replaced new oil and still working slowly then the problem is in the circuit board is near to run out its needs to replaced whole circuit board so its better again. I know this because im a technician in Rolex service center before. Feel free to ask whatever the result.

Hope it may help you;

My atomic watch is 5 minutes slow, do not know how to change the time to the correct setting


I would suspect that your watch is not picking up the radio signal to reset itself to the correct time. There are several reasons for this - the battery might be very low, or you are in a poor reception area, or you are just too far from the transmitter, or the hands need realigning. If the watch claims to pick up multiple transmitters, then be sure that it is set to the correct one. Try taking off the watch at night and placing it face-up on a window sill to give it the best chance of a signal.
I can't offer anything other than general advice as you do not give the make/model of your timepiece. Some radio-controlled watches have a facility to realign (or 'zero') the hands - again, can't be specific without more information.

The digital display shows the correct time but the hands do not.


hi there when you replace batteries in wave ceptors all hands have to be set to the home position (straight up at 12 oclock), as the instructions vary wildly from watch to watch you will have to download the manual from www.casio.co.uk you will need to put in the module number (found on the back plate of the watch), this will be in PDF format, you can download adobe reader for free from www.adobe.com to read PDF files. good luck

Eddie bauer watch runs slow


This usually means the battery is dying. Usually the backs on these are very tight, and the back has to be taken off to replace the battery. You might be able to get the back off without damaging the watch, but you probably will not get it back on without breaking the crystal. Best thing to do is take it to a reputable watch repair place or jewelry shop and have them replace the battery for you. Before they begin, make sure they are willing to replace the crystal for free for you if they break it!

New watch is losing 5 to 15 minutes a day


This could be that the battery is slow. Newer swiss watches have a indicator in the movement of the watch that makes the sweep second hand skip every few seconds to indicate that the battery is slow. On regular japan made watches the watch just simply starts slowing down. Your watch could be new but the battery in it could have a long shelf life.

Klik radio controlled watch


First, you need to set the hands at midnight. Press the upper button for 3 secs and let go. The hands will start to advance. Watch them, and when you are almost at the position of 00:00:00, press the upper button again briefly and the hands will stop. Then pulse the upper button to finish advancing the second hand to a perfect 00:00:00. Within 10 seconds, press the middle, knurled, button briefly (if you don’t, the watch will just to back to where it was). When you have done this, the watch will start to run (albeit at the wrong time).

Now you need to tell it to set itself from the time signal. Press the upper button and the lowest one *at the same time* for 3 secs and let go. The watch will acknowledge your request by moving the second hand (only) to 12. Leave the watch somewhere it is likely to get good radio reception. In a few minutes, you will see its hands start to move to the correct time, and they will eventually get there and your watch will be working again.
