HOW TO START YOUR AUTOMATIC WATCH


mcdevito75 here,The Automatic feature in your WATCH consists of a counter-weight attached to the MAIN SPRING by a gear that allows a SLOW but steady wind of your watch with the motion of your WRIST, ARM. Once, only in HIGH END watches, today almost all watch manufacturers have this feature in some of their models. Everyone who owns an AUTOMATIC watch knows, you can START your AUTOMATIC watch by WINDING THE STEM and you can continue to wind the stem with no end. This will at least START your AUTOMATIC watch and, this is true to some extent BUT, does this apply to my watch you ask?, Here"s how to tell if your AUTOMATIC watch will START with a few winds of the stem or not. ------- Very Simply, Hold your AUTOMATIC watch to your ear and wind the stem, if you hear a sound as though something is DRAGGING or the stem feels slightly stiff one way you wind the stem and you hear a clicking sound when you wind in the other direction, then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that will start with a few winds of the stem, approx, 20 turns or winds. If on the other hand you hear nothing when you wind the stem and the stem feels very loose when turnning then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that winds only with the motion of your wrist / arm, to start this type of AUTOMATIC watch, simply hold the watch in your hand and rock your watch back and forth, say from the 12 O"clock to the 6 O"clock, and or, Hold your watch securely in your hand a make circular motions with your hand, any movement to get your watches counter-balance to turn and thus wind your watch. Approx. 1 minute of this extra motion will start your AUTOMATIC watch, then simply wear your watch and your wrists / arm motion will keep it wound.

Automatic light function.


There is a button below the face of the watch that has the atomic watch symbol on it. Hold this button down until you hear a beep and it will turn that function off. To turn it back on, press & hold the same button until you hear a beep.

Problem winding a Invicta Skeloton Mechanical Stainless Watch


The Tag Heur repair center says an automatic watch must go through an "initiation" process. They recommend winding manually 40 revolution of the crown clockwise. You must wear an automatic watch at least eight hours per day. Repat the initiation if the watch is not worn for 20 hours or so.

Small 'eye' icon??


The "eye" icon appears when you have your backlight set to auto. that means when you move your wrist to look at your watch the light comes on automatically. I have found this to be a huge drain on the life of the battery. to turn it off hold down the light button (the grey button on the front with the red "g" on it) untill you hear it beep.

As for the watch dieing when the alarm goes off that is a good indication that you need a new battery.
