Watch keeps stopping

I've had a problem when I adjust the time, the second hand stops, as it should, but after I finish, it intermitently doesn't start back up. how do I get the second hand to restart? It's a beautiful watch, but this is frustrating. Thanks, Ron

Just a quick question On my Omega Double eagle, I went to mexico for the week left my watch at home and when I return I gave it a shake to start the movement being it is a chroncile watch and for some...

A mechanical watch will tend to stop in the same place if an internal gear is slightly unbalanced and/or there's a spot of grease/dirt that makes that particular point on a gear slightly more difficult to pass. I've often seen watches with day/date indicators stop just around midnight, as it takes more energy to advance those dials than just move the hour and minute hands.
Try winding your watch with the crown as opposed to shaking it to wind it via the automatic rotor. Actual winding will bring your mainspring up to full power much faster than a whole lot of winding via automatic rotor. See if this changes the behavior of the watch. If it doesn't, you probably need to have a watchmaker take a look at the watch. He or she will probably recommend cleaning the movement to clear any dirt that might be causing the problem.

How do i set the time for my adidas ADP6002?

The watch looks and feel great; the band doesn't hurt my wrist like other watches. The instruction book, however, was awful. It was a bunch of instructions for other watches, not the ADP6002. It took a few minutes of playing around for me to figure out how to set the watch. Here's how to do it: 1) Make sure there is a little "t1" above the second hand. If there is a "t2" instead, hold the Start/Stop button for 3 seconds. (This is the part that was messing me up) 2) Hold the Set/Light button for a few seconds. The watch should say LIGHT and "OFF" or "ON" should be flashing. 3) Press the Mode button until the hour hand starts flashing. You can adjust it up and down by the Start/Stop and Lap/Reset buttons. 4) Press Mode to adjust the minute, second, and other settings. 5) Press Set/Light button when you are finished.

mcdevito75 here, It sounds like the (larger) minute hand is leaning against the (smaller) hour hand, stopping the time telling past 11:20 while the seconds hand keeps going. You"ll have to see a Watch repair person and have them look at your watch. Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area.

In reading the movado 800 quartz chronographic instruction manuel there are 3 settings for the crown. the first is the one in which you generally wear it. the second position states it will stop the watch...

The time should only stop when the crown is pulled all the way out in the third positiion... In the second position the 2nd hang should continue to tick and you should only be able to move the hour hand on the watch

  • Undo & pull the crown all the way out,then
  • undo the adjuster button (the one underneath the crown)
  • push the stop/start adjust button one push at a time and it will move in slight increments,keep going till you get the second hand on the 12 mark
  • then push the top adjuster and it will go back to the 12 mark.
  • Push the crown in and wind your adjusting buttons up and you have finished

Second hand stops, then ticks four ticks very fast then stops,

It may be that the battery is getting near the end of its life.

Analogue hands don't correspode to digital clock


Sometimes a watch will be off center due to shock, dead battery etc. Symptoms are; hands don’t line up, digital and analog time doesn’t match, Compass function doesn’t have the hands exactly opposite etc. This can all be fixed. The Synchronization function can be used:

1. Activate Crystal
2. Tap center until you are the unit’s screen (12h or 24h, F ft or C m).
3. Push and hold (at least five seconds) the center crown
4. Watch will beep and word (SYNCHRO) will appear in the display.
5. Use the top + button to line up the minute hand right on the 12.
6. Use the bottom – button to line up the hour hand right on the 12.
7. When finished, press crown and you will go back to time.

The second hand of my Tissot watch T870/970 starts and stops.

Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".

Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.

The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.
