A "non" fully charged watch will sometimes "jump" seconds rather than indicate one second intervals. Charging these small solar panel watches takes forever, in BRIGHT sun. Have you tried leaving it outside, in the sunlight, for at least 12 hours?

Leave your watch on window sill (sunshine must be plenty) for a week. If the watch will not keep charge after that, visit your closest watch repair shop and ask to replace capacitor. Rate me, plz.

Loose hand on my watch can it be repaired ?

Take it to a jeweler, most can fix them. But you need to weigh the cost of a new watch versus what you have now and any sentimental value the watch has. If it's a Longines or a Rolex, fix it. If it's a cheapie just get another. But fixing this is not a do it youself project.

I have a citizen elegance water resistant watch with serial number 891188. I need 2 links added onto it for it to fit me.

My watch is an Elegance that is thirty years old with sentimental value. I don't know how old your watch is or how much you want to put into it. I would contact Citizen to see if they could fix you up with something if you haven't done so already. They should have these watches cataloged. You may have to send it back to them.

My watch has stopped after a long time of not being used how much will it cost to have it repaired and it also needs a new glass face as its scratched . (AR-0297)

The exact cost will vary depending on the shop you bring it to, and the overall condition of the watch. If the battery has just run out, it could be a very inexpensive fix ... but if the battery has died and corroded within the watch, it could be a much more difficult task, and cost a bunch more. If you are able to do so, I would recommend switching out the battery before you bring it anywhere as doing this yourself can save you some money and might get it running again in no time. As for replacing the face, I would recommend taking it to a repair shop for this (though once again I am not sure how much it would cost ... it depends on how much of the watch has to be taken apart to get the face off).
If your watch relies on a wound spring rather than a battery, then you would have to bring it to a professional to get the spring fixed (if that is why the watch has died). This is a delicate procedure, and requires a bit of skill and knowledge about watches to get it done right. This would be a bit more expensive to fix, but if your watch bears a lot of sentimental value, it could be worth it. If you have to wind the watch daily to keep it running, and winding it no longer works, then you are best to take it in to a repair shop and ask for an estimate.

If you have a glass face on your watch then you will probably need to get it replaced. If the face on your watch is plastic then you might be able to get it buffed and possibly smoothed out.

I purchased my second citezen watch in auburn, Massachusetts also i purchased the two year warranty. My warranty expired in february and my eco drive watch expired in july of 2008. I took the watch to get...

this does not sound indicative of citizen watches...they usually have great movements. A new watch movement might be $100 when shipped back; I had a Kenneth Cole that cost $60 to get a new watch battery and link removed. Check with them, or on the internet; there are tons of e-tailers that sell used or new movements. Buy it and take it to a GOOD watch repair shop. Most shops have the tools but little knowhow so check around. they should be able to drop it in with little hassle, otherwise my recommendation is to go to Zales and pick up a preowned watch for $60...I got a beautiful Calibre 2100 for $105!
