Question about Fossil ME1020 watch

1 Answer

Not sure what parts should be moving on new Fossil Me1020 watch.

I purchased a mens Fossil watch item ME1020 and one of the see thru working parts is not moving but I'm not really sure if it should since I have not ever seen another like it. There are two small circle shaped openings on the left hand side of the watch one above the second dail and one below. The one above the dial is moving but the one below is not. Should it be? I'm wondering if I have a bad piece that I should return. Thanks!

I have a Fossil Twist ME1011, basically the same idea behind the one you have. What happens is there is a weighted third-circle that is in the back of the watch behind the battery (you can't see it) that spins a spring (the spring is the bottom seethrough part that ISN"T moving!) the spring then moved the UPPER seethrough part, which in turn spins the second hand!

IF the second hand stops working, carefully take the back off the watch and you'll see the weighted third-circle that I was talking about. It should spin, and in the middle there is a tiny flat head screw. The screw can get loose, so gently tighten it and the second hand should work again!

    It's fine! I have the ME1011, pretty much the same idea. If you take of the back, you can see a weighted wheel that can spin around freely. You cannot see this from the front. This weighted wheel spins as you move about, and winds up a spring located in the lower 'see through' portion of the watch, which then spins the upper see through portion that you can see moving! This in turn spins the second hand. The battery is in charge of keeping time for the minute and hour hands. IF the second hand stops working, it's probably because the screw on the back of the weighed wheel is loose. Carefully tighten it and your back in buisness!

    Gosh I got the same problem!! I bought the watch about 2 weeks ago and the second hand doesn't work already!!!! Is it normal? should I take it back with the warranty?? I got even the impression that the automatic wheel isn't working well as it isn't spinning well when i turn the wrist! is it broken?

I have a fossil 1089 and the automatic machinery stops after being placed on a table within few minutes. Is it just for show or does it charge the quartz cell.


Fossil Twist watches are somewhat odd ducks; there is no connection between the automatic watch mechanism that powers the second hand and the rest of the watch, which is powered by a battery-operated quartz movement. Unlike a Citizen Eco-Drive or Seiko Kinetic, the automatic rotor does not power or charge the electronic side of the watch in any way.

My me1020 came without instructions and i do not know how to set the date, min nor theday please help


Actually there is no instruction manual for ME1020 available on Fossil website except for how to replace the battery. When you try to match ME1020 model with the available diagrams, there is no match (4 eyes). To set the time, pull the crown out to the second position. Now set the min/hour hands. Date hand is linked to it so keep rotating the crown till the date is set is set correctly. Now remaining is the day setting. Notice that the day changes every 24 hour mark on the 24 Hour sub-dial, so cross this mark to change the day. Go reverse & again cross the 24 hour mark to get the next day. Repeat this till you get the correct day setting. Now your day is also set along with date & time!

I can't get my head around how to manually wind my Fossil ME1020


You are not supposed to wind the watch, in simply winds itself with the motion of your wrist. A weighted wheel located in the back of the watch winds a spring that powers the second hand. The minute and hour is power by quartz and a battery.

Set?


Press Both side buttons at the same time. This should reset the hours and minute mini-circles. Then use the top button to "start" the second hand moving again. press it again to stop the second hand. I'm unaware as to how to restart the bottom seconds circle.
