SOURCE: watch second hand

I had the same problem with my Tag. Same 4 second jump. It's definitely the battery. I'm surprised at only 3 months, but maybe it sat a while in the display case. Mine was over a year and a half.

SOURCE: the second hand stop moving but the watch is still

The hands of an analog watch are often only press-fitted on the shafts (hour and minutes are tubular, seconds solid shaft) and the second hand has probably only slipped so it is no longer being driven. I suspect a watch-maker could reattach it for a small charge.

Sounds like a job for Fossil!

Go to their web site "www.fossil.com" and at the bottom of their page is a menu which includes "store locator".

Sounds like it may be a bit sticky or need demagnetizing. A light sharp tap on the side on something like a wooden or plastic surface might help!

I have a FOSSIL mens wristwatch model # AM3423. I recently had a watch repair person replace the battery. Battery type and charge confirmed. I received the watch used as a gift from a relative who was...


Quartz watches stop working most often for one of three reasons: (1) dead battery; (2) dirt in the gears blocking the train; and (3) a bad crystal. This is the order in which I typically troubleshoot watches.

If the watch isn't working after you change the battery, first check to see that the stem is fully pushed in. A watch movement can shift just enough inside the case that a stem sometimes looks pushed in, but isn't quite in far enough to re-engage the movement. Pull out and push in the stem a few times to see if that changes anything.

Next, assuming that the battery is indeed fine, look closely at the second hand. Is it moving at all, even a tiny bit? Hold the watch up to your ear. Is there any kind of "chunk" sound about once every second? If you can answer "yes" to either of these questions, a speck of dirt has gotten into the movement and is preventing the gears from moving freely. It doesn't take more than a a big spec of dust to cause this. Sometimes, advancing the time will move the gears enough to cause the dirt to fall out. Some watch repair places also have a special machine that spins the hands rapidly to blow out or compact any dirt in the train. It's usually not economically rational to have the movement professionally cleaned beyond this point.

Finally, if you don't hear anything coming from your watch, the battery is good, and the setting stem is pushed firmly and completely into the watch movement, you may have a bad quartz timing crystal. It does happen, and when it does, the only repair is to replace the entire watch movement. Sometimes, that's affordable; sometimes, it just doesn't make sense.

Good luck!

your watch is chronograph,. and it is not in the picture. probably your problem is the second hand won,t move, it is because that the sub dial on the lower part it is the real second hand. the big second hand is for the stopwatch. the to sub dial on the upper sides of your watch. the upper button/bumper is to start and stop the stopwatch or the big second hand and the bottom bumper/button is to reset it. i hope this can solve the problem...

The crystal face of the watch is cracked. We need to have the crystal replaced. Where do we send it in? Our watch repair doesn't handle things like that! It is an Akribos watch.


there are many different options, you can "google" watch repair, and choose someone to send it to. any local jewelry store should be able to give it to their watchmaker for a replacement crystal.

Well, thats a good watch. however, based on the conditions of your watch, probably, its battery is not dead. some of its mechanism were not in place or broken. Repairing it is advisable. Afterall it has no scratches like what you've said. So go for repair men!

The minute and hour hands are "out of sync"... the


The problem that you describe--misalignment of the hour and minute hands--would be fixed in the way you'd describe--the watch movement would be removed from the case, and the hands would be removed from their pinions and placed down more accurately. This is a relatively minor repair if you have the right tools, but it's not something I recommend for the average DIY person.

The first challenge is removing the watch movement from the case. Some movements drop out easily, but others are kept in place by the crown and setting stem. These must be removed in a way that they can be re-inserted. Simply pulling them out by brute force usually damages the internal set lever; different movements have different mechanisms for releasing the stem.

The second challenge is removing the hands. Attempting to "slide" the hands on their pinions runs a high risk of damaging the pinions by making one or both of them oval instead of round. Very little force is applied to the pinions, so even a slight distortion can mean that your watch will start to hang up at odd times when friction is stronger than the force being put out by the watch movement. Even worse, it's possible to break one of these little parts--they're very strong, but they're also very brittle. A tool called, naturally enough, a "hand remover" is used to pull the hands straight up off their gears; they're then pushed back into their correct place.

For a qualified watchmaker or watch repair technician, this is a simple and inexpensive repair that should take them only a few minutes once they get around to actually paying attention to your watch. Given the high risk of damage to your watch if you haven't done this before and if you don't have a hand removal tool, I would suggest that you outsource this repair instead of attempting it yourself. I have ruined more than a few watches in the course of practicing this repair; it doesn't take much force to damage these delicate parts!

Most makers have a limited warranty and does not cover anything outside the case.

Have you tried any of the local watch repairers; on the face of it, it sounds to me that a watch repairer should be able to fix it for you.

Just had the battery replaced on my Wenger Swiss Army watch Model : 7987X/T. The red second needle is no longer moving.. its stuck on the 30 min mark. Watch works fine otherwise. Could not find any info...


If the second hand of your watch isn't moving, but the watch is otherwise keeping time, you most likely have one of two problems. The simpler to fix problem is that the second hand might have come loose from the post onto which it's been fitted. It's a simple friction fit, and a watch technician would simply remove the watch movement from the case and very (very!) gently push down on the seconds hand to re-seat it. If that's the problem, that's all there is to the repair.

A second potential cause for this behavior could be that a speck of dust or crud has gotten into the gears that operate the seconds hand, preventing it from moving. This can easily happen when changing a battery--many watches tend to get somewhat of a buildup of crud where the watch back meets the case. Especially with screw back cases, the process of loosening the back also loosens the crud layer, making it easy for little bits to fall in. If you do have crud in your movement, you're a bit limited in what you can do. Unlike old-time mechanical movements, very few quartz movements are made to be disassembled and cleaned. Instead, a watch repairer may be able to blow some air (not compressed air from a can--that will probably wreck your movement) to try to clear the gears. If that doesn't work, there is a little device that some watchmakers have that runs your watch at about 50 time as fast as normal. Spinning the gears like that can sometimes generate enough force to clear a blocked gear train. I have done this to resurrect several watches whose hands were stuck. However, I was still able to see the "pulse" of the second hand on those watches, even if the hand itself never moved forward.

We have a Carriage watch by Timex that's my mom's (she's in a nursing home). The watch wasn't keeping time so my brother replaced the battery. It was running fine, now it's lost time....


A second hand that pulses but does not advance usually indicates one of two problems: (1) a weak battery that provides insufficient power to the tiny motor that advances the second hand; or (2) a bit of dust or grit somewhere in the watch's gear train that is jamming up the works.
Try testing or replacing the battery. If that doesn't work, some watchmakers can try to blow out (using very gentle air puffs, not cans of compressed air) the watch movement and/or put it on a special machine to try to unjam the gears. It is usually does not make economic sense to perform further repairs on a watch of this price range, though it is also possible to replace the entire movement.

You would have to remove the movement from the case, remove the hand and reinstall it, to where you want it.
