This could be that the battery is slow. Newer swiss watches have a indicator in the movement of the watch that makes the sweep second hand skip every few seconds to indicate that the battery is slow. On regular japan made watches the watch just simply starts slowing down. Your watch could be new but the battery in it could have a long shelf life.

Tag Heuer watch losing time


Make sure the voltage on the new battery is correct. Just because a battery is new does not mean it is good. That is likely the problem.

My watch has been losing time all day long. It runs at least two to five minutes slow in the course. I bought it in 2006.


Overhaul is needed for your watch. It has mechanism, and it needs to be serviced every 4-5 years. Just imagine what would your car do without service! So, go and see the watchmaker.

My prc 200 is not working maybe its the battery?


These watches are "automatic" which means that the are self winding.

They will run for 1 -2 days before stopping. Shake the watchgently from side to side for a few minutes and it should start again.

(These watches need to be constantly used to keep them working).

Analog hands lose time when worn.


This is usually a indication that the minute hand is slightly loose on its pinion. This requires that the hand be tightened, so that it does not slip. Best left to a watchmaker.

I believe you are just outside your warranty. Its time to see a watch maker/technician about repairing the watch. Often times slowing is as easy to fix as lubricating the movement and forcing the gear train through the use of a cyclonic device. This fix takes minutes and is very cost effective. If the slowing is due t circuit board issues or a more sever gear train problem then the movement will need to be overhauled. I suggest comparing this cost to the cost of a replacement movement.

Watch stopped after not being used for several days


The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

There is nothing wrong with your watch. Probably it's the one measuring heart rate and pulse (heart beats per second).
Use your users manual to set the watch.
By the way: Timex is one of the worst watch producers.

Luminox 3001 watch not keeping time


Because of the way they work, it's quite hard for quartz movements to run consistently slow - so if you find one getting behind, it's usually a sign that it's stopping intermittently. It would do no harm to check that the crown is properly pushed in after you've reset it, but my guess is that the watch will benefit from a new battery. A.
