The battery may be bad or installed with the wrong side up. Usually the positive (+) side faces up.

If this is not the problem you may have a bad coil in the movement or the watch needs servicing by a qualified watchmaker.

If you have any further questions please let me know.
Many thanks!

If you have any problems with a new watch you should go first to the supplier and if they can't help, contact the maker.

Most makers have a service depot who can help you.

You can find your nearest service depot by going to the Invicta web site (http://www.invictawatch.com/) and clicking on "service " in the menu bar at the top and there is a link to instruction manuals.


The battery should be OK unless the watch has been part of a window display for a considerable time. (Most of the batteries I have used lasted 1-3 years).

The light in my watch stopped working. How do I get it fixed? It is a Timex Indiglo(ladies) I don't have any other info.


Most watches of this type have 2 batteries - 1 for the light and 1 for timekeeping. If you use the light a lot, you may have flattened the battery but the watch keeps going because it's running on the other battery. Take it to your local jewellers/watchmakers/watch repair shop and get them to test the battery and replace if flat. If the battery isn't flat and the light doesn't work then you have a faulty watch - if it's still under guarantee fine, if not buy yourself another watch if you can't put up with the fault.

Will the analog (hands) stop working on a Wave Ceptor when the battery is low/dead? Digital feature still works fine....watch about 4 years old


Yes, definitely analogue part will stop, because it takes more power to move gears and hands. Replace battery and you'll be OK. Rate me, plz.

I havent worn this watch for about a year the battery has 10 year warranty and was working fine.now it has stopped working.


A few watch companies...Bulova being one of them used to give a 10 year warranty but I dont know of any batteries that actually last 10 years! The average life of a 1.5 volt silver oxide battery is 2-3 years (sometimes a smidge longer) depending on the age and condition of the watch. A 3 volt lithium battery will get on average 3-4 years.

Im guessing that your battery is probably dead! :-)

I just bought my wife a michele csx-36 watch. Its brand new. The watch runs for about one day then stops . What do you think it is. We did replace the battery already. Thanks


that happened to me too...the watch repair man told me that I had the stop watch on. The stop watch should serve as a stop watch, not the second hand. The second time on your watch is the small dial at the bottom middle of the face. Once I turned off the stop watch feature, my battery life is fine...I have not had to change my battery in over 2 years now. HOpe this helps.

Swiss army stopped, im stressing..


If it's a quartz (battery powered) watch test the voltage of the battery. If below 1.5v then replace with new. Ensure battery contacts make good contact with the battery and are free of corrosion/rust/contamination of any sort. Check operating manual for any specifics regarding battery replacement proceedure.

Buttons stopped working


Probably you changed battery youself. If that's right, then open watch again, take battery out and check it with tester if it is fully charged. If yes- put battery back in place and secure the contact. Now carefully check for AC sign on movement. When found- take fine tweezers and connectAC with battery+ for 3 seconds.
Watch should work now, but resetting is needed. Use your watch manual to reset all watch functions.
NOTE: Some movements require connect AC and+ twice. This should be written inside caseback or on battery cover.

Good luck.
