Problems with Tag Heuer 2000 Classic WK1120.BB0314

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!

    I have recently noted that the seconds hand moves every 4 seconds (.i.e stops for 4 seconds and then moves again to the next four seconds i.e if it stopped at 12:05:04 it will go to 12:05:08). Time is correct.
    Can you please advise what is the problem?
    Does it need battery replacement?

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.

Swatch diaphane second hand stuck


Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

I accidentally stepped on my Tag Heuer TWWK1120.BB0314 bracelet now the clasp doesn't click and lock. Do I need to replace the whole bracelet or just the clasp.


Has it broken, or just been bent out of shape??? If it is just bent you could possibly take it to a TAG repairer or a watch maker to get it adjusted

Tag Heuer 2000 Automatic not moving


Hi,

Sounds like your watch is in need of service. All watches need to be maintained and regular service is required. A watch is a tiny machine. So if you think about it a car needs regular maintenance to keep it running and so will any machine.

In a watch the oils dry out after about 3-5 years and they stop lubricating. Just like in a car when the oils stop lubricating the engine will stop, a watch will stop.

The reasons for this are 1) no lubrication means high friction on the moving parts. 2) the dried oils become gummy like glue and hold the gear train in place which keep the gears from moving.

The only answer is to have your watch serviced to get rid of the old lubrication, clean and replace any worn parts, then reassemble and lubricate, and finally adjust the timing.

This is something only a watchmaker should do as the parts in your watch are very small and very fragile. Improper handling can permanently damage the parts.

Hope this helps,

I cant set the time.


sounds like the crown stem may have snapped. Same happened to me and it had to be replaced at a cost of NZD$300. Have you bumped the watch or maybe tighted the stem too tight?

Second hand stops for a few seconds and then starts again over and over again


Try manually winding it (assuming it's not a quartz watch). If a mechanical watch is not worn daily it will run down and need to be manually wound to get going. Turn the crown clockwise about 40 turns.

Where can I purchase bb0316 links for women's tag heuer band?


Hi,

If your watch is older than 4 years you can't buy links unless you get real lucky and find a watchmaker that happens to have some on hand.

Swatch sold Tag Heuer about 4 years ago to Louis Vitton. LVMH did not purchase the parts for watches made prior to the sale of the company. So all those parts are no longer available.

If your watch is less than 4 years old you can contact Tag Heuer directly for the links.

Hope this helps,

The chronograph hand of my TAG Formula1 starts at 2 seconds to 12 not at 12 o clock also after reset it stops at this point. What could be the problem?


If you pull out the crown to the first stop, then press the start/stop button that should move the second had on one second per press. The reset button moves one of the other dials. If you pull the crown out to the second stop, the start/stop moves the minute hand on, and the reset button moves the other small dial round.
