You should go back to the watch repair shop and ask for complete check-out of your watch. No watchmaker can return the watch to the customer without properly checking all the gearwork, timekeeping, battery power and all the features the watch has.
As your watch was serviced and the battery replacement took place, the executives of all the work done are responsible for all the faults your watch is having right now.
As watch repairs are quite expensive and time consuming, they (probably) will argue with you about this issue, but DO NOT give up, as these are YOUR consumer rights to ask for the job to be properly done (under warranty or paid by you). In case if you will be turned down, ask for FULL refund and find another shop.
If the repair shop is ready to undertake the job again, do not rush them, as the complete watch overhaul and check may take up to 6 weeks (this MUST be done at no any cost to you if you have the warranty or allready paid for the job).
P.S. I suspect that there is some fault in your watch geartrain, because if it is shooked or moved, the watch works, but when idle-it stops. That means the service of your watch was NOT DONE properly, and some failure or even dirt in geartrain was missed by the watchmaker (sometimes it happens- nobody is perfect!). This doesn't mean you have to agree with it, so, go and get your watch properly serviced and checked out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Does t. woods watch require pressure testing w/ battery replcmt?


As long as they don't charge you $40, it should be free. Having said that my machine for testing water resistance cost almost $5000. I have to recoup that somewhere. Now you know why it cost so much. Does it require testing, no. But kon't come crying to me your watch leaked and I was the last to open it. I told you it needed to be tested but you didn't want to spend the $40. That is the view from the other side of the bench.

A friend has a tag heuer tiger woods link that I think is non genuine. It does not have a screw down crown. Does not have a serial or model number on the back and does not say swiss made on the dial. Is it...


Take it to a store that sells them, they will be happy to determine if it is a fake. Take the opportunity to see, feel and appreciate what a real one feels like and you will probably be able to tell in future if it is fake or not. Beware, there are some good 'fakes' out there. And remember, Only fake people wear fake watches.

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,

Hi there i have bought a second hand tag heuer carrera tachymeter,i dont have a user manual,but cant seem to get the chronograph functions to work ?


Great watch! Operation should be pretty straight forward. The top button starts the chrono and stops it. The bottom button resets it. To calibrate the sweep arm into the right position pull the crown out to the first or second set position and press the start button until the sweep arm is in the start position you desire. This is typically 12:00 or 0.
If your chrono is not working then have the battery checked. If the battery has been recently replaced then make sure the watch doesn't need to be cleared.
I recommend you take this to a watch maker/technician who will be familiar with the service requirements of this model including resealing and pressure testing the watch to be sure it is sealed to its marked water resistance specifications.

Thanks!

Tag tiger woods runs down over night


I have a couple of questions. Do you wear the watch all day? How is your activity level ? If the answers to these is yes and good, then the problem lies in the self winding mechanism.
Without seeing the watch it is imposable to give you a complete estimate of the work needed.
We offer free estimates and all our work is guaranteed.
