I have a Pulsar watch and on the expandable band, the casing fell off and can't get it replaced unless we take off a link...To me this was too much trouble, time and expense...I won't buy another Pulsar! Too bad cause I thought it was a beautiful watch.

hi...either the generator is shot or the rechargeable battery...yes, it should run guess is that it should run a couple of months without wearing/charging it...I suggest you mail it back to the manufacturer.....d.

For sure it is time to replace that old capacitor and replace it with the latest solution that uses a Lithium Ion battery. Find a good experienced repair person to do this for you. I do this daily and I am a Certified Master Horologist/watch repairman.. Ron at

SOURCE: My pulsar watch (maybe 7 years old)runs

is it battery or automatic or kinetic. first have battery checked if this still does not solve prob ask repairer for movement exchange instead of service as this way you get a new engine...if its automatic a service should have worked as pulsr use seiko movements wich are very good if its kinetic it needs a new capasitor as these last about 5yrs before the need to replace or attempted recharge.

Wich battery number may i use in this watch bulova 96t63 ??thanks

cant see that model watch on the Bulova web site user manuals
if unsure if it needs a battery go to a jeweler or watch or battery seller

some model Bulova Watched instructions
(no battery)
Mechanical watches differ from Quartz watches in several
1. No battery changes are needed - they are powered by a main-
spring, which is wound either by wrist movement; or in some
models by daily winding of the setting crown.
2. Because it is a mechanical device, it's accuracy is subject to
the effects of gravity and temperature. You can expect, on the
average, a daily variance of up to 10 to 20 seconds for
mechanical watches.
3. Just like automobiles, these watches require routine mainte-
nance. Due to their mechanical complexity, mechanical
watches require cleaning and new lubrication every 3 to 5
years to run at optimum efficiency.
it must be wound at least six or seven times before you wear it.
After that, your daily activity should wind the watch sufficiently
to keep it running at night when it is not being worn. If your
normal daily activity is not sufficient, occasional supplementary
manual winding may be necessary. It is suggested that your
mechanical watch be cleaned and oiled periodically to insure
optimum performance. As a mechanical watch, quartz watch
accuracy cannot be expected. References to the power cell do
not apply to Automatic watches

Watch stopped working

Sometimes the complex movements can be fickle about how you move it. On my best friends watch he just moves it back and forth while my wifes watch has to be swirled in a circular motion. If that doesnt work part of the movement may be broken or out of alignment.

I bought this watch 1.5 years back.I have started using that.It worked properly.For the last few months I didn't wear it.Now the watch is not working. So the problem is in the battery ?

On average, I've found that analog wristwatches that use a silver oxide (or alkaline) battery last about a year after a fresh battery has been installed. Digital watches, because they have no moving parts, will typically last longer on a set of batteries if you're not using the alarm or backlight function. Watches that use lithium batteries generally last two years or more between battery changes.

Based on your model watch, I would guess that your battery has run down too far to power the movement. A fresh battery will probably fix your watch. Hint: in the future, if you aren't going to wear your watch for a while, pull the stem out into the "set" position. That will stop the movement and extend the life of your battery. When you want to wear the watch, simply set the time (and date, if you have a date window) and push the stem back in.

Hi, I have a fastrack 4307SL02 watch with which the manual wasn't given during purchase. In the fastrack website, the manual for this model is not available. Where to get the manual?

I hope what we can do is , just on a daily basis we can mark the date at the top of the watch through Black Temporally Marker.

or to change the Watch.......

I have to set it everytime i put it on. it good when i wear it. is it the battery?

What make and model watch do you have?

(is your watch automatic? if it is, then these only run for 2-3 days at most before stopping and need to be used daily to maintain their operation.)

If hand winding does not work then try waving it gently from side to side for 100-200 times (yes! that is what some makers recommend).

Since self winding watches thrive on use, it is best to wear it daily to keep it functioning.

How come the time stops when you do use it for a little while?

You do not say what make or model of watch you have but look at the face to see if it says "automatic".

If this is the case, then your watch is a mechanical self winding type which will run for 2-3 days before the spring needs rewinding.

These watches thrive on being used, so if you wear it daily, the self winding mechanism will keep it wound up.

I have bought a new daytona but after every few hours it just stops anf i have to reset it again.its quite frustrating

A Rolex watch is automatic.It needs to be worn 8 hours per day to store enough power to run 36 hours off the wrist.Assuming that you are wearing the watch daily if it still stops there is a problem with the auto winding or mainspring.As a new watch it will be under the Rolex guarantee so return it to the place of purchase.If you dont have a guarantee contact for advice or a free estimate.
