Swatch beat digital watwon't function after new battery installed

I purchased a Swatch Beat aluminum digital watch in London in 2000. The battery died awhile ago and I just had it replaced but the watch still doesn't function at all. No display at all. How do I "restart" this watch?

The brand of these watches is "Le Clip" and they are not Swatch nor are they by the Swatch Group. They should not be mistaken for the Swatch Clip watches or the Clip prototype.

Biederman & Company has become the United States ad agency for Le Clip, a Swiss-made watch that may be clipped to a place of your choice. According to Barry Biederman, the watch has already caught on in Switzerland, Britain, France and Spain, where 500,000 of them are expected to be sold this year.
With the United States added, the sales goal for 1987 is two million.
The watch is being made by Le Clip S. A. of Geneva, and it has set up an American marketing arm called Le Clip U. S. with Steve Bochner, formerly a regional sales manager of Swatch Watch U.S.A., as managing director. Le Clip will have a suggested sales price of $35.
The budget for the October-through-December introduction in New York will be about $500,000, and national spending next year should be $2 million to $3 million. All in good time.

My Swatch Irony watch has recently been running slow. I thought it might be a low battery, but after a replacement, it still loses time (a few minutes each day). Any ideas?


Thank you for contacting Fixya,<br /> I would have the battery checked again. Sometimes batteries in stores can be past the extended life of battery. Otherwise could be a number of issues. Has it been around water? Dropped? Could need cleaning. In cases of most watches, like Swatch, the cost to have repaired may exceed the watch. <br /> You can contact Swatch at:<br /> <a href="http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html">http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html</a>

mcdevito75 here, Once any Quatrz mechanism goes, it"s ususlly gone. New replacement Quartz mechanisms are sold but just the mechanism itself could cost $30.00---$70.00 then the labor to have it installed, A Swatch watch is a COLLECTABLE item, it may be worth the expense of a new Quartz Mechanism, spaek with the watch shop about details.

The pendulum stopped swinging...the clock and chimes work well


Hi
This clock short of needing a full service may simply be out of beat.

Taken from my web page located at:
http://antiqueclock.clockstop.com/CLOCK_BEAT.htm

"HOW TO PUT YOUR CLOCK IN BEAT"
-Included below is a 10-second sound <snip> of a clock both in and out of beat.

leval.jpg notleval.jpg
IN BEAT ////////\\\\ OUT OF BEAT
· Turn on your sound and click on the clocks above for a sound clip.

-One little known fact is that a clock does not have to be level to be in beat. I had a customer that had a mantel clock in an old farm house, it was brought in for repairs and sent back running great just one problem: I put the clock in beat on a level surface [a small problem] because the mantel it had set on for it's entire life was not level. I had to literally go to the house to put it in beat where it sat.
-I have often found most Grandfather or floor clocks are set up out of level and put in beat where they stand, This is fine.
-As I'm sure we now realize a clock must be in beat but not always level to function properly.
clutch.jpg
· Above is the verge with a slip clutch.
· Often found on Grandfather clocks and requires only a long swing to get it in beat.

-To get the clock on the right side in beat you would need to push the verge assembly to the left.
-If it must be bent to put it in beat, do it slightly, but don't bend any of the suspension parts.

Put in new battery and it does not run.


It is because some 317 batteries have their negative terminal plate flashed a little bit into the positive side plate and some are a bit thicker thus the negative plate of the skin swatch touches the side of the battery. sometimes battery cove/lid cannot be closet when the battery is a minute thick. renata battery is just right for the skin swatch.

Hye...my watch swatch stop functioning even i already changed the battery.


Could be Following Reason

1, Watch movement required overhaul
2, Circuit or coil warn out
3, Battery connection are not on right place
4, Test new battery to check its strength

If watch has only battery cover on the back and does not has backcase
like most of swatch watches are then watch can not be overhaul.
hope this information is helpful
