    DO NOT BUY A TISSOT! I purchased the watch on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship out of Venice in July of 2007. I LOVED the watch, and am a big outdoorsman that used the compass and altimeter, barometer—everything a lot hunting bighorn sheep in the Rocky Mountains. I literally thought I could be a commercial for TISSOT TOUCH. Last summer the watch quit working, and then started again, it worked on and off for a few months intermittently stopping—I assumed it was the battery and when it finally stopped for good I took it to my jeweler to have the battery replaced. He could not open it, which I discovered was a good thing because the warranty would have been void. I then contacted TISSOT through the website, and within a few days Veronica responded Friday, November 7, 2008, 9:14 AM. Since then I have been in touch with Time Tech, a referred watchsmith on your list, I sent them the watch (WITH a battery, since I expected that was the issue) only to discover after several weeks of persistence, that they do not work on the TOUCH and sent it away. It then took me quite some time to receive any further information as to where the watch went, who has it, what they are doing with it, when I will get it back. Of course, all this time, I was still thinking I had an $800 watch. I finally receive, after persistence once again, information that they sent it back to “the factory” and I cannot call them because Time Tech sent it to them and is the customer, not me, so they will not talk to me. OK, fair enough, after all I am getting my watch fixed for free, it is a warranty issue obviously—what happens next? I receive an estimate for $400, $245 minimum from TIME TECH. Where is the estimate from “the factory” or is the watch being repaired under warranty and Time Tech is charging me $245.00 to coordinate it? Also, why could I not send it to the factory in the first place? At this point I am thinking of tossing the watch and regretting the whole purchase—I can’t even sell it, it doesn’t work, and functional used one can be purchased for $290.00 on ebay—that is what I am being charged just to get mine back. I have been told that I need to get the battery replaced about 1/year (?) That seems like a pretty big hassle for an $800 watch. Did I make a mistake in buying TISSOT? As cool as the watch is and as much as I loved it for one year, that is a pretty expensive short term investment.

I have a 3054. About 3 days ago it reset to 1-1-2005 and has never changed. it now reads 1-3-2005 at 5:57 PM

This same problem (watch resetting to 1/1/205) has happened to me 2x now, about 2 months or so apart.

I have had this watch for ~10+ years now, and works perfectly.

I have replaced the battery 2x.

Again, the watch works great.

I just realized that in the .pdf manual, there is no indication for a "low-battery" condition.

I am guessing that the "low-battery" is what is causing the watch to reset the date/time to 1/1/2005.

Any others having this same problem if this watch resetting to 1/1/2005 after the watch has run just great (auto time syncing, etc.)?

This watch Keeps great time!

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.

You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.

Need to set time on WalMart TGHK watch.

If its digital that makes it more difficult to give setting directions online. Need to know the exact model #. I would do a google search to try and find your watch and you might find a manual online. OR you could seek out a local watch repair business and they should be able to set it with no problems. Most Sears have a watch repair kiosk in their stores! I woudlnt take it back to Walmart because they are just sales people! They have limited watch knowledge!

Good luck!

Watch second had is not consistant on how the second hand moves - it still keeps good time is that a low battery issue

If you second hand is ticking in stutter steps, in other words it hesitates 2-3 seconds then quickly steps forward, and your watch is still keeping correct time that is an EOL (end of life) feature...your cell has become very low and it's the watchs way of telling you to replace the battery. Good luck :)

Watch stopped while in hospital and now, although running again, has the second hand moving in two second intervals

Some Seiko kinetic watches and other self charging watches do this when the battery is low. If it relies on you moving to keep it charged that may explain why it stopped in hospital. Try giving it a good shake and see if it starts moving smoothly again

Watch stops sometimes and then restarts

If it's new, then just take it back to where you got it. There is no way your warranty can run out in a week.

Watch not keeping the right time

I wonder if someone (I usually blame my kids for that sort of thing) has dropped it and managed to get adjacent turns in the balance spring tangled. Finding out means opening the watch up, examining, and if necessary fiddling with the most delicate part of the movement - there's plenty of potential to do further harm. (The balance spring is hair spring that sits beside the little wheel that you'll see rocking back and forth to make the watch tick. It should be a neat, open, flat spiral). A.
