Time is slow, not accurate at TAG QUARTZ watch

I bought a TAG quartz watch for my wife, after 2 weeks, it become slow. I went back to shop, she asked to wait and see the difference, If problem still persist, they will change the battery. When we back to shop, this time they may send to repair 5 weeks to 6 months. Its unacceptable.

Rarely but sometimes, even the jewelers batteries can be low on energy even when new.

Very unusual that an expensive watch does what you're saying.

Has the watch ever been dropped, OR does it have any noticeable scatches or scuff marks along the edges? use a magnifying glass to inspect it carefully.

if you find unusual marks or scratches, you may have been sold a bad watch too.

Nowhere in the little operations manual that came with my watch does it give the accuracy of the timepiece. Where can I get that information? I have a movado ESQ bracer chronograph.


Interesting question. I know little about watches but, as you would know, your watch does have a quartz movement, so, from Wikipedia, 'Quartz clock':

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.

If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.



Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?

I didn't wear my Michele CSX 36 w/ diamond watch for a few days..When I went to put it on the time was wrong. So I tried to correct it and now it has not kept accurate time w/in a 24 hr period. Fo


I am pretty 100 percent sure that Michele CSX 36 diamonds only comes with a swiss quartz movement not an automatic movement.
So the problem seems to be that the battery is dying and need to be replaced. Stopping and going is usually a sign of a battery dying in a swiss quartz movement.
So it should be nothing major and just a battery.

The quartz Tag I have stops when I am not wearing it for a day or two. It is 18 months old. What do I do?


Battery in watch was fitted at the time of assembly, not at the point of sale. Replace the battery and ask watchmaker to check if the watch is OK at once.

How does the swiss eta g10.211 quartz chronograph work


Hello,
I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking how this particular quartz movement operates?

All Quartz movements are pretty much the same operational wise. They can vary greatly in materials used for construction and number of jewels.

At it's basic a quartz watch uses a piece of quartz crystal called a transistor oscillator to vibrate a tuning fork. This vibration is a is brought down by micro processors to a meaningful number then converted into mechanical energy trough the movement and hands.

In the case of a chronograph it means more internal gears and jewels.
Although this is a good movement it is the low side of middle of the road.

The G10.211 is an analog display of hours and measured time. These include hours, minutes and a small jumping second as 6 o'clock. Mechanical date and counters for 1/10 second, 60 seconds and 30 minutes with "ADD" and 'SPLIT" functions. Operated by 2 push buttons.
It has 6 jewels.

If you want to know something more specific please just ask.
Hope this helps.

Second hand doesn't move for each second


Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.

The seconds hand ticks at 4 secs a time


Don't whatever you do allow the watch to be sent to Tag, as they are very likely to state that the watch needs a service at a cost of £125 after having your watch for 8 weeks (they charge £40 for a new battery which is bad enough) . This they do all the time and seems a bit if a scam. They state that the internals need cleaning by their specialists. Lets just think about this. A hermetically sealed watch to 200 meters has got dirty inside! They said this to me and so I asked for the watch back. They had removed the back of the watch, so I had a look inside and in the intervening weeks the run down battery had corroded. Luckily the terminals are gold and resistant, so I replaced the insulating disk which had corroded with a disc of thin plastic from a water bottle label and bought a battery for £1.36 and all has been dandy ever since. If you are concerned to do the same, an independent watch specialist will change the battery and repressurise for between £25-35
