Question about Tag Heuer WK1120.BB0314 Wristwatch
Hi, about a month ago, the watch stopped, and the seconds hand started to move backwards and forwards. I was told that Tag's do this to indicate that the battery needs replacing. When I took it to the shop to get a replacement battery fitted, they said that there was a problem with the ELO or something similar to this. they didn't replace the battery as they said the problem needs to be fixed first. The shop wasn't a Tag specialist, and they couldn't say with 100% certainty that this was the problem, more of a guess really. Does anyone have an experience similar to this or suggest any recommendations? Does anyone know a DIY method to remove the back? Many thanks for reading this!
Explanation is simple: your watch has jammed geartrain or some dirt particles stuck into geartrain. This is why the seconds hand was moving backwards and forwards.
Nothing to do with EOL (End Of Life) feature wich is built into watch microelectronics and signals that this is the time to replace battery by advancing seconds hand two or four seconds at once.
To open the watch you need a proper watch caseback opening tool, but I can't see any reason for doing that as you will not be able to fix the geartrain problem without proper knowledge and skills.
If the warranty of the watch is expired, you don't need a TAG specialist as you will be charged for job anyway. So, find your nearest watchmaker shop and ask for repair.
Do not forget to rate, please.
