Question about Tag Heuer Aquagraph CN211A wristwatch

5 Answers

Runs Fast My Tag Heuer Aquagraph has recently been running fast. It's automatic so I'm unsure what the problem is. It seems to gain 5 mins every 2 or 3 days. By the time a couple weeks go by, it's about a half hour too fast. What could be the problem? The last thing I could remember that would have affected anything was pounding on a door with the same hand that the watch was on. The watch did not hit the door but maybe the force could have transferred from my arm to the watch and affected the internal mechanics or rotor? How much would it cost to fix something like this? Al

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 !!.

Hi, I've got a automatic tag aquaracer watch that loses about 4 mins every month (about 4 yrs old). Common problem? Can this be fixed ? Or is it a lemon of a watch? Any advice welcome. Cheers.

If it's automatic and 4 years old, it's probably time for a watch overhaul. Auotmatic watches need overhauled about once every 4-5 years. It's normal for it to lose time, but 4 minutes per month may be a little extreme. So, get the watch overhauled. I would recommend Tag Heuer to overhaul it.

I accidentally banged my watch going down a hallway, it now runs 10 minutes fast per hour. What did i do to it?

If your watch is mechanical one, then you may have dislodged the balance wheel. If that is so you need to take it to a watch repairer to have it fixed.

I have an aquaracer automatic and it gains up to 6 - 10 minutes in a day. I have had it fixed before and it was fine for 12 months and now it has started again. Is this normal?

All of the watches I have owned have run for many years without attention and when you buy one as expensive as yours, I would expect similar reliability.

I suggest that you speak to the maker (or contact them via their web site "Tag") and discuss your problem with them.

The second hand runs extreamly fast

Either the watch is faulty, in which case you need to return it to the store which you bought it, Tag Heuer are very good at fixing their watches. If you bought it elsewhere, check that it is genuine, before sending it anywhere, because if not a genuine Tag Heuer, you may not get it back. I'm guessing its a Quartz model, which are difficult to repair but simple and cheap to replace, which is what they will do (Tag/Jewellers) if its an Automatic model, then it will be repaired quite quickly, as very simple to do. Any problems, luxury sauce dot com, contact me via there.

How do you replace the batteries on a Rotary Revelation watch?

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.
