Question about Tag Heuer Aquagraph CN211A wristwatch
Usually when a watch with a mechanical movement is running fast its is because the adjustment on the hairspring is advanced to far. Since it wasn't running fast to begin with I can assume its because something was knocked loose. It is possible that a tiny drop of oil was on the hairspring and by knocking the watch two coils are stuck together by the oil. (this usually only happens if it has been over oiled by an amature watch repairer) Magnitization is possible but pretty unlikely, unless you play with Big coils of wire that are carrying a LOT of current. Either way, unless you know what you're doing and have the right tools, you are looking at taking it to a Tag repair center. Since a simple tune up can cost about $250, I'd expect to pay $400 to $500 for that one. Welcome to the wonderful world of high end watches.

Occasionally it could simply be a problem of the balance wheel being set to too fast a position. If you can remove the case-back with no problems, and have a small enough screwdriver, you can play with the balance wheel adjustment.
If the watch still runs fast it could be a de-generative problem deeper within the movement.

Solution number three is a good laugh. :)

Cut open a rubber ball and place the watch inside, boil in water for about ten minutes, then bounce it down a flight of sixty-one
stairs 19 1/2 times, remove the watch then take it to your
jeweler to be repaired.

Exposed to a magnetic field ??.
Think if you have been near it ( electronic devices, etc. ).
The watch must be desmagnetized !!.
