Hi Murbilpov,

thank you for using fixya, you have a very fine piece of jewelry. it appears that your watch needs cleaning right on the knob and adjust mechanism. as per a service document from longines, a possible build-up or a broken first gear may cause this issue.

you may refer to their official statement when it comes to cleaning and having the watch repaired.

1) Where should I send a Longines watch that needs to be repaired, adjusted or serviced?If your Longines watch needs to be repaired, adjusted or serviced, werecommend that you bring or send it (well padded and by registereddelivery in the latter case) to your nearest Longines authorizedservice centre. You will find its address in your guarantee booklet oron our website in the Customer Service section.
2) Is the repair of a Longines watch that is more than 20 years old still possible?Yes, we still repair vintage watches at our head workshop in St-Imier.
However, without having the watch to hand, it is impossible for us tojudge its state and to know if all the necessary spare parts for therepair are still available.
Therefore, we kindly suggest that you send your watch via the nearest Longines authorized servicecentre to the Longines head office in Switzerland. Upon receipt andafter analysis of your watch, we will send you our comments and a priceestimate for the repair of your watch.
3) How often do you recommend having a maintenance service carried out on a Longines watch?We would like to draw your attention to the fact that a watch used daily is running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week non-stop.
The frequency of the maintenance service depends on the type of watch, the climate and the care taken by the watch wearer.
In general, it is necessary to have your watch controlled andserviced at least once every 4 - 5 years, just like any other precisemechanical device. This guarantees the reliability and rate precisionof your watch.
4) Which operations are included in a complete maintenance service?The following operations should be included in the price of a complete maintenance service:
– complete dismantling of the movement, cleaning, oiling, reassembling, regulating and the checking of functions;
– repair or replacement of movement components that are either worn or faulty;
–replacement of the following parts: glass, crown, push-pieces, sealsand battery if a quartz calibre (parts included in the price of theservice, with the exception of shaped mineral glasses and sapphirecrystals);
– restoration of the water-resistance (if a water-resistant model);
– refurbishing of the case or bracelet (two-tone, gold-plated and PVD-coated cases and bracelets, cleaning only);
The above service standards are only valid for the Longines head office in Switzerland.
5) Which operations are included in a partial maintenance service?The following operations should be included in the price of a partial maintenance service:
– during each partial basic repair, Longines undertakes to check theregulation of the movement and replace the glass (if necessary), thepipe, the crown, the push-pieces, the seals and the battery in the caseof a quartz movement (these parts are included in the price, with theexception of shaped mineral glasses, sapphire crystals, and restorationservices carried out on the dial, case and bracelet. Parts made out ofnoble metals will be invoiced separately);
– restoration of the water-resistance (if a water-resistant model) and cleaning of the case and bracelet;
Any repair that necessitates the replacement of a part, or any servicementioned in point 7 automatically involves a partial basic service.
The above service standards are only valid for the Longines head office in Switzerland.

Hope this helps, should you have other questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

regards,

voodoo

Stops after i take it off, I have to shake it to get it going again, problem is intermittent, I have no clue...


Your watch is self winding and will run down (if fully wound) for about 2 days.

This type of watch thrives on use and if not used will stop. To avoid having to re-wind by shaking, it should be worn every day.

(Some makers say that to full wind up their self winding watches, they need to be shaken (gently) aboiut 200 times).

I have a Tissot Automatic PR 516 from the early 70s. Time is kept well. Date moves forward correctly but it is the wrong date. I am unable to turn back the date. I am able to turn back the day. Any...


The crown wheel (winder) should have 3 positions, (1) the normal winding position (3) fully out; at this position the watch stops and the time can be adjusted.

(2) This position is between the 1 & 2 and is used to adjust the day and date. If you wish to change the date by winding the crown backwards or forwards.

Since watches can very a little, if turning the crown when in position 2 the date does not change, pull the crown to position 3 and turn the hands until you pass the midnight position, when the date will change and then re-set the time. If you wish to advance the time more than one day, when it changes, wind the crown backwards past the midnight position and then wind it forwards again. Repeat until the correct date is showing and then re-set the time. The exact distance you need to turn the crown to change the date will have to be found by experimenting!

My watch stopped run, it will only run for a few seconds and then stop, it has not been worn for a lot of years


This model is not on their web site but other SN models are and they are "self winding" types.

It could be that it needs to be wound by gently shaking it from side to side (face up). Some makers suggest several hundred times to wind the watch fully.

As most makers recommend that their watches are serviced every 2 or 3 years; if winding it up by shaking does not get it going, a trip to their service center might do the trick.

I don't know how to wind the watch....can you help?


WIND AT THE SAME TIME EVERY DAY. This is extremely important. In order to ensure that your watch keeps good time it must be wound at the same time every day. Most people like to do this at night before bed.
WIND ALL THE WAY. The watch must be wound all the way, or it will slowly lose the proper time and require constant resetting. Also, if not wound all the way, the watch may stop keeping time earlier than expected.
WIND IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. Most European watches wind clockwise when the face of the watch is pointing towards you. Determine which way your watch winds, and stick to that direction. To figure this out, try to turn it both ways. The wrong way will either be extremely loose, or extremely tight.
Tips & Warnings
Keeping your watch clean and free of dust and dirt will also add to its longevity.
Contact the watch's manufacturer for any special and/or specific care methods.
Don't under or over wind you watch. When you start to feel resistance, STOP.

I bought it new and then a few weeks later the battery seemed to stop. I did not wear it often. I heard some watches do not use battery and function with the movement of one's arm. Is this the case for...


If the watch is a self winding type, then it generally says "automatic" on the face. These will run for about 2-3 days if they are not worn, as the self winding action only works when the user is moving).

Battery driven watches should run for at least a year before needing a replacement, so if it has stopped already, it could be self winding or manually wound type. Some self winding watches can be manually wound so you could try this to see if it starts.

Do I need to wind a Fila Chronograph Automatic Watch


Under normal use winding an automatic watch is not needed.

If it has been left unused for more than about 3 days, then it will stop. On some automatic watches you can wind them but if yours does not allow this, then, holding it level (face up), swing it gently from side to side for a few minutes. This should wind the watch and after this normal use should be sufficient to keep it wound.

How do I adjust my time


hi friend,
i think your rolex watch must be a automatic one. this kind of watch, you don't need to put battery, after in full power, i can last 24-48 hours. if you wear it, it will not stop, but if you don't wear it for long time, it will stop automatic. to adjust the time, you just need to wind the crown counterclockwise, and then pull out the crown, and then you will hear the sound of "click" and then find the right position, and then wind the crown to change the date. please note that the date have to change from small number to big number. after adjust it, you have to screw down the crown to a good water proof capability.
