Question about Ripcurl Ultimate Oceansearch Watch

Open Question

What causes my Ultimate Oceansearch watch to reset itself multiple times a day / week?

I have had the battery replaced and had the watch pressure tested - the watch resets itself constantly for no apparent reason. Time reverts to 12h00 and date reverts to 01/01. Tides and compass also reset.

My casio pro trek 2894 is frozen it shows op en ontop and when i press the setting button it resets time to 12h00


Hi

Have you checked that all buttons when pressed come in and out easily?
Sometimes the little spindles that press the contacts inside the watch do not come out completely and remain "pressed" even if the button appears to be "out"
Clean the watch, with particular attention to the buttons area so they can move easily in and out. If this does not do the trick, open the watch with great care not to damage the threads on the plastic case and visiually inspect if the buttons travel easily in and out and that all springs if fitted are sound. Remove and replace the batteries with new ones (DO NOT use bargain batteries from that "auction site")
and reset the watch.Try again, if ok carefully clean the back seal apply a little vaseline to the top of the seal and close the case. DO NOT over tighten the screws as this will damage the plastic thread and the watch will not seal properly and will be likely to flood with moisture. Good luck

You should have to turn the watch on. If it is not on, then you need a new battery.

After I changed a battery on R0614ZM TERNER watch, the display went berzerck and then blank altogether. Any ideas at all?


Some watches have a "reset" button or combination of buttons that must be pushed to clear all the electronic registries on the watch's little computer after you replace the battery. You might try taking off the watch back and seeing if your watch has this requirement. Even then, it's not always a perfect solution. Last week, I replaced the battery in a watch that had been dead for some time. The watch appeared to come alive again when I put the new battery in, but when I pushed the reset pin (on this movement, it was on the watch movement itself, next to the battery), the entire watch went dead. Nothing I did would wake it up. I removed the battery, waited 30 seconds, then re-inserted the battery. Problem solved; the watch powered up, and I was able to set the time and access all functions again.
On some digital watches from the 1980s, after replacing the batteries, you were supposed to push and hold all the external buttons for a few seconds to reset the watch. I don't think manufacturers still make watches that respond to this, but it is easier to try than taking off the back and re-installing the battery.

IT IS AN ORVIS AUTOMATIC AND IT STARTS AND STOPS AND DOESN'T KEEP CORRECT TIME.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
When you first receive your automatic watch, you must give the watch an initial pre-wind. If you wear it everyday, it will continue to wind itself on your wrist when you move around and walk. If you stop wearing it for more than approximately 2 days, the watch will need to be reset, but will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again. The disadvantage to this is pretty clear. Your watch does not t keep time if you do not wear it constantly. The advantages are that you will never have to replace a battery, the watch keeps great time when it is running, and most of all, this type of movement is exactly what the originals use! If your Automatic is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period the watch needs to be adjusted. All of our automatics have an adjustment screw on the movement just like the originals. Any local jeweler can service these watches.
Best regards! Jewel

you don't have to change battery, as it was still at the right time. There might be some other reason that your watch behave like that. A test on the capacitor of your watch is needed, if this still strong then i suggest you should have your watch General Overhauled by a technician.
