SOURCE: kenneth cole k3771, is the self-wind function working?

Self winding watched should not need to be wound as long as they are being worn.

To tell if the self winding mechanism is working, hold the watch close to your ear (hold it vertical, as though it was on your wrist) and rock it gently. You should be able to hear a ratchet operating (a soft clicking noise).

I can't help thinking your suspicion about the mechanism having failed, sound very likely.

SOURCE: Self winding watch stopped

You need to swing the watch backward and forward for some time (200-500 times!), to re-charge the battery.

This may take some patience!

SOURCE: Have old Mickey Mouse self winding watch. Bought

I will explain from the last question asked. To get it going you have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for estimate. Shop owner told you things he/she do not understand at all - self winding watches CAN NOT BE OVERWOUND, so, there is the question: are you sure this watch is self winding? I've experience of 26 years of watchmaking and have never came across Mickey Mouse watches having self winding movements. As far as I know, all MM watches are battery driven, but in case if you really have the mechanical one - you are lucky. That means there were past times when those watches were fitted with mechanical movements and now they are rarities. Even if your watch is not self winding, but is mechanical (not battery driven), visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to check this watch out. In case if it is mechanical - pay the money and get it fixed (you will be a winner anyway). If it is battery driven - put it on your shelf where your's mother in law picture is and treat it accordingly. Rate me , plz.

Self-winding Seiko watch stops ticking.


Take it in to a watch repairer. Sounds like the self-winding spring is worn if not so then the watch repaier will find the problem. There is nothing you can do so do not attempt to fix it.

My watch is not working,,is there a battery i must change?


Your watch is a self winding type and does not contain a battery.

To wind it up, swing it from side to side gently for a few minutes (this operates the self winding mechanism).

Self winding watches thrive on use and will only run for 2-3 days if not worn.

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.

The watch is self widing. ait just stopped working


Yes I do. Don't try to fix your watch.

My watch maker friends have told me that generally speaking, the reason most self wind mechanical watches stop is: (1) they need cleaning or (2) the screw that holds counter weight in the watch (that actually does the winding) comes unscrewed. He said most of the watches that have been worked on by the customer have lost the screw.

My advice remains have your watch looked at professionally.

Any other concerns my friend?
