Does the watch have a battery, if it does it is a signal to change battery. Mine jumps 5 seconds at a time when battery low. Not sure if a watch like that has a battery.

I just bought a Gucci 8905 YA089303 and the second hand jumps about every 4 seconds. Is this fixable?


You are witnessing what is called the EOL or end of life indicator. Relax, it's your battery not you! Better watches have this feature. You will notice the time remains correct even if the seconds hand jumps 4 seconds. Some watches it is 2, some 3 seconds.

Seiko SGF204 second hand hesitates or jumps a second and looses probably 10 minutes an hour. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks


When the watch jumps a second or seems to stop then tick twice, it indicates that the battery is low. You will need to take your watch to have the battery replaced.

The movement on the second hand is jumping every 5 seconds instead of every second, however the time is still correct.


Many high end quartz watches have a feature called the EOL or end of life indicator. This causes the seconds hand to jump 2, 3 or 5 seconds depending on the make of watch when the battery life is low. The watch will continue to keep accurate time until the battery dies completely. So, when you see your seconds hand jumping multiple seconds it is time to get a battery.

My Wittnauer is jumping every 5 seconds


Your watch is fitted with EOL feature and let you know about insufficient battery power by moving seconds hand by 2-5-second increments. You have about two weeks time to change the battery from the EOL engagement or your watch will start to malfunction or even stop. In this case you will have to reset your watch after battery replacement. EOL = End Of Life (relates to battery only). Jumping seconds hand means it's time to change battery.
Rate me, plz.

Second hand not sweeping but jumps at 5 secs intervals. Appears to be keeping accurate time.


When the second hand moves in short jumps rather than a smooth sweep or a second-by-second hop, it means that the battery is about to run out. Usually, with a week or two the watch will stop working altogether. You should go and have it changed as soon as possible.

Second hand doesn't move for each second


Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Longines watch problem


Some longines watch has built-in battery gauge. When battery is low, the second hand jumps every four seconds. If you have new battery installed and the problem persists then there is a short circuit somewhere that drinks a lot of battery juice.
