Turn knob to set on "Match" Pull out crown knob. Press both buttons for 3 seconds. When you release both buttons it will beep and both hands start moving. Press either button to stop movement. Then press the top button to set the minute hand to 12 oclock. Press the bottom button to set hours to 12. Press in crown and turn to "Time" Pull out crown and set time the same way.

    No matter what, I still can't get the hour hand to move. The minute sets fine but zero movement of the hour hand either on the match position or the time position. Any thoughts?

TW360 GLOBAL ATOMIC G-Force watch. The back of the watch says it's a STRONG IDEAS brand. I had a new battery installed and the Jeweler couldn't re-set the watch.

The solution provided does NOT solve the specific issue for this watch not having a 4 digit number on it's back. Therefore, the number of solutions to this problem is 0. Where is the thumbs down icon?

I have a Tissot PR 50 Chrono,,, I have replaced the battery 3 times in the past two years. Then it got to where the second hand only would run. Now, nothing. If I hold the lower button in, the second hand...

When a battery is replaced, but doesn't last long, that indicates an internal electrical problem with your watch. The fact that the hands are operating incorrectly is also an indicator that something has shorted out inside the watch. I wish whomever sold you batteries 2 & 3 knew what they were doing!
As the Tissot is a fairly expensive, quality watch, I would suggest finding a locally-owned, high-end jeweler to recommend a watch repair shop, or alternatively, go online and Google "Tissot repair" to find an authorized repair shop. Good luck! Sorry I couldn't help you.

I wanted to replace battery in my wife's Relic watch and a little metal part dropped on the table. I don't know where should it be put back. Do you have a manual for watch ZR33471. I would like to fix...

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
First of all, the manual would not help you with the battery. They usually dont have this info in manual. Your best bet is to take your watch to a local jeweler who does watch batteries. I imagine its just the battery strap but they can help you. You may get lucky and they dont charge you if you have the battery.
Best regards. Jewel

What battery is the replacement? Relic ZR11622

Thank you FixYa.
Look on the back of the watch, or in the manual. If it doesnt say the battery size you will need to take to jeweler to have them measure the compartment to see what battery is needed. Sorry but no other way to know the battery needed.
Best regards. Jewel

Cannot set

Every battery replacement includes watch reset as well. If it was not done properly by watchmaker, then you are eligible for full refund and even can ask to fix the watch, as it was in working order before you gave it to jeweller.
This will not solve the problem, but at least it will make you feel better.
Next time you need the battery replacement, find the nearest watchmakers shop - not the jeweller. They are usually under one roof, but the trades are completely different and no jeweller can do the watchmakers job, as this takes years of learning and training.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Dead battery on nixon insider watch!

The insider has not one, but FOUR batteries. I took it to my local jeweler for replacement and the watch never worked the same again. I suggest you return to Nixon for battery service.

To Nixon's credit, their warranty dept. replaced my watch after trying to fix it.
