Sounds like there is dirt in the movement that is blocking the train and stopping the watch a service should sort it out

SOURCE: watch second hand

I had the same problem with my Tag. Same 4 second jump. It's definitely the battery. I'm surprised at only 3 months, but maybe it sat a while in the display case. Mine was over a year and a half.

SOURCE: the second hand stop moving but the watch is still

The hands of an analog watch are often only press-fitted on the shafts (hour and minutes are tubular, seconds solid shaft) and the second hand has probably only slipped so it is no longer being driven. I suspect a watch-maker could reattach it for a small charge.

SOURCE: The second hand of my Tissot watch T870/970 starts and stops.

Hello!
Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".

SOURCE: Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.

The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.

How do you know if a watch battery is fading. On some watches the second finger moves two seconds at a time but on one of my watches it is just losing time.


If it looses time and it has been like more than 2 or 3 yrs since replacing the battery it could be that the battery is loosing power. loosing time is a symptom of a fading battery power.

Akribos xxiv watch


Sounds like it may be a bit sticky or need demagnetizing. A light sharp tap on the side on something like a wooden or plastic surface might help!

My watch works with movement, and will work for a few seconds then stop, even thought I'm continously moving. Is it a shortage or something? I can shake the watch and it will work but only for a few...


I would take it to a watchmaker/jeweler to have them check the battery. Some watches have a battery bar that holds the battery in and it may have come loose. Or the battery is losing charge. It should not cost you anything to have them check the battery for you. Good luck

Stopwatch second hand stops/jams at 57 seconds point, jamming the whole works. watch stops. keeps excellent time otherwise if stopwatch not used. 2003 SS model. bought new from rolex.


this watch will need a service from a rolex trained repairer wich wont be cheap 700 dollars min or 500uk pounds min..you could try tapping watch in palm of hand to see if a batton or luminous paint has come loose,then all it needs is movement taking out and blown clean inside case.any decent repairer can do this.sometimes the teeth on a wheel can wear in one place hence it always stops in same place.recomend service as best action,you never loose on a rolex...

Automatic watch seconds hand stops at 8


The 'dit' at the 8 is higher than it should be. Slightly lifting or unbending the tip of the second hand will correct the problem.

I have an Oris BC3 which was never a great time keeper; gaining or losing 5-10 seconds per day. Recently, it started to gain at an alarming rate and I took it to be cleaned and regulated at a watch...


Take your watch back to the watchmaker and ask to regulate the watch again. After a decent repair watch shouldn't loose or gain that much and if properly regulated and tested can keep good time. ORIS is using the same Swiss made ETA movements as Tag Heuer, Ebel, Montblanc, Tissot, Maurice Lacroix etc. These are very good mechanical movements and can be adjusted to allmost perfect timekeeping.

pull out the crown and press either the start button or split button. One of those will move the sec needle.
