Question about Invicta Automatic Watch

2 Answers

New automatic watch keeps stopping

I received an Invicta automatic watch recently and it keeps stopping. Especially when I'm sitting. I've wound it manually for what I thought was a good amount but it still keeps stopping.

How many rotations of the winder do I need to make for this thing to be fully wound? Or for how long approximately do I need to manually wind it so that it won't stopped when I'm working on my computer.

You can wind this watch until it is snug. If it does not continue to run during normal wear then you should have the watch looked at. The swing weight or main spring maybe malfunctioning. If you can return it under warranty that would be best.

I have to guess that you have a 21-jewel Miyota movement (it should say on the 1/2 moon rotor visible through the watch's case back), since you are able to wind it? 30 to 40 good size 1/2 turns should give it enough reserve for most of the day. Also keep wearing it even after winding it. It should start to perform more consistently...if it does not, then you may have a faulty watch.

It looks like your watch has mechanical issue. Without inspecting the watch it's hard to say what exactly the problem is and I suggest you return it for replacement under warranty.

This is certainly not normal. I had an automatic watch and because I wore it daily, I was unaware that is need any special treatment.

Automatic watches usually run for 2-3 days before stopping (if fully wound) and thrive on being used. My automatic watch was unsatisfactory when I bought it (new but very cheap) and I had it cleaned and it gave years of excellent service after that- perhaps that is your problem. I suggest that you contact their service center for advice.


If your watch is new then you should register it on their web site (go to http://www.invictawatch.com/invicta/services) and send it to them for repair.

If it is out of warranty, then you will see a price list on the above page (this is very unusual!) which will give you an indication of what you may have to pay to get it fixed.

I just bout my invicta skeleton ghost. Its an automatic watch and for some reason it won't work for longer than five minutes. Is there something that I did, or am doing, that u could point out to me?


If the watch has been allowed to run down, then it may need some considerable activity to wind it up again.

Hold the watch level and shake it gently from side to side for a few minutes (this should operate the self winding mechanism and wind the watch up). After this, wearing the watch should keep it wound up.

Tag Heuer Tiger Wood Golf WAE1111.FT6004 Watch stops when not worn. Is there a problem


Hi,

An automatic watch needs to be worn, wound daily or placed on a watch winder to keep it going. It is not like a quartz watch that has a battery and can keep going when not worn. A modern automatic watch will run for about 36 - 48 hours on a full wind.

A quartz watch that stops like you describe is in need of a cleaning by a professional watchmaker. When this stopping occurs it is an indication the oils have dried out and the warmth from your body heats them so they are semi liquid again and the watch runs. but when the watch cools again the oils harden and the watch stops.

Hope this helps,

How do I change the date on my invicta divers watch


The answer to your specific question is the 2nd instruction below...I've also included two other settings:
Here are the 3 main crown positions you need to know once you unscrew it from its locked down position:
1) unscrewed, it can be manually wound, in one direction [clockwise}...20 to 30 half-turns seems to be good to get it through the night.
2) then, pulled out one small stop, the date can be advanced by turning the crown towards you (ie, counterclockwise)
3) pulled out one more stop, the time is adjusted by turning the crown.
I hope this helps!

Automatic Watch Stops


There can be hundereds of causes why your watch isn't working properly, so, I'll not name them.
One is clear- without help of skilled watchmaker your watch will NEVER work properly.
NOTE: It may sound very strange, but mechanical watches do NOT like to be left without job.
Next time you decide to leave mechanical watch aside for long time- do not forget to wind it up once in a 2-3 days even if you are not wearing it.
This will help to prolong watch movements life and keep timekeeping steady and accurate.

Problem winding a Invicta Skeloton Mechanical Stainless Watch


The Tag Heur repair center says an automatic watch must go through an "initiation" process. They recommend winding manually 40 revolution of the crown clockwise. You must wear an automatic watch at least eight hours per day. Repat the initiation if the watch is not worn for 20 hours or so.
