Question about Tissot T-Race Mens Black Automatic Chronograph Sport Watch T0484272705701

Tissot T Race Auto Chrono watch stops after 1 / 2 days of not wearing?

I bought this Tissot T Race Automatic Chronograph watch just a month back, and I dont wear it everyday - but I am surprised that even if I dont wear it 1 / 2 days it runs out of juice and stops working. I hate resetting each time I have to wear it - is this normal? I've had many other Auto Chrono watches other from smaller brands like seiko and casio they go on forever without wearing. I have warranty, if this is not normal, then I could act asap.

Got the same model (the golden one) encountered the same issue, if you don't have the watch box and you wont use the watch, mount it on an oscillating electric fan that you use everyday (so that it will keep on moving whenever you use the fan), that will do the trick ;)

As the name suggests, it is AUTOMATIC watch. That means the watch is wound by the movement of your wrist and the energy of oscillating weight is transferred in to mainspring through gears. Usual power reserve for modern mainsprings is about 42 hours or less, so , do not expect watch will run longer than that if you do not wear it or wind it up.
If your Seiko or Citizen watches were running longer, that means these watches weren't AUTOMATIC. These are Kinetic, Solar or battery powered.

SOURCE: Bought a 1970s tissot automatic

A self winding watch will run for 2-3 days if it is not worn (they thrive on being used) and it sounds as if you have not been using it; is this the case?

It could be that the winder does not operate on the spring (some watches don't), so to wind it up you need to activate the self winding mechanism.

You can do this by gently swinging the watch from side to side for a few minutes. This will simulate the normal operation when it is being worn.

If you continue to have trouble with it stopping, it could be that it needs cleaning. I had a similar problem with a watch I had some years ago.

SOURCE: the tissot visodate watch is automatic not battery driven.

I would not wind the watch manually. I also have a Tissot. If you cannot wear it often enough to keep it going, you can purchase a watch box that is made for self-winding watches which will turn the watch periodically in order to keep it wound.

Just bought a Longine watch L4.309.5.57 automatic, can i use it during sports e.g. Aerobics class and cycling?


I had a similar problem. I had no trouble with ordinary mechanical watches but when lcd electronic watches hit the market I tried a change and bought one which was replaced several times while all my friends had no bother at all.

These days I rarely wear a watch because mostly I no longer care what time it is and my phone has the time on it.

Longines watches are a reasonable quality but an automatic watch is really only suitable for normal everyday activity and such things as aerobics is likely to severely shorten the life of the mechanism. The original "activity" watch was the Swiss incabloc movement but the people who could afford to buy such a watch would not dream of wearing it while performing vigorous physical activity.

I imagine the only watch that would have a chance of standing up to sustained punishment would be a quality digital watch.

A fob or pocket watch would be a sensible alternative. There have been a wide variety of sports fob watches produced, many of them combining timepieces with stopwatch and timer functions.

I hope this helps.

I bought a Tissot prc 200 quartz chronograph a month ago and it suddenly stopped working. Can someone please tell me what's the problem?


Well, I go to a jewelry shop called fast fix and purchased a "forever battery " most obvious answer is that the battery is simply dead. Second, there may be debris in the clockwork, which will also kill the battery. Good thing about the forever battery method is that they will clean out the watch for free usually, which saves on them replacing the battery.

The 60-second counter hand shakes slightly when watch is tilted.


I don't think it is normal for hand to move when tilted. what about the warranty? Tissot must cover your watch under the warranty. Mind you I had a similar experience with Samsonite luggage and despite International guarantee, they did not honor. I have lost faith in some brand names.

Can you tell me what 50M water resistant really means in a Tissot watch that uses a crown to set the time? PRS 516 Quartz, Chronograph. So can I swim with it?... (never mind the leather strap) Will it...


hi its a bit of a grey area as some cheap watches boast 50m water resistant but as its a tissot you should be fine but id rather you went to tissots website to make sure, just as long as you dont go diving it should be fine, good luck
