Did you have the battery checked to see if it was bad a first? Take it to a Reputable watchrepair , and ask them to CHECK your battery NOT replace it. Alot of times your watch will have a mechanical problem which will make your watch look like it is o.k. once you replace the battery but, two weeks later the watch stops again because the battery has lost enough power to now stop the watch again. Also your watch may have a electrical problem which a battery will not solve the problem. The coil (the orange straight piece in the movement), or the curcit board could be bad. Always have the store check your battery because, if you ask them to change your battety they will no matter if your original battery is good or not.

SOURCE: my watch needs a new battery.

There is a tool that you need that adjusts to the three holes or openings in the back of your watch and it just screws off. If you don't have access to the tool, simply take two push pins and CAREFULLY insert them into the openings and unscrew the back cover. Remember that it unscrews counter-clockwise.This will give you access to the battery simply take it out and go to the store to buy a replacement repeat the process to install the cover back on.

SOURCE: Watch going in reverse

There is no difference in watch batteries as they are produced by the certain standards. That means you have replaced the right battery.
The simplest solution would be re-replacing the battery. Just take the battery out and leave the watch without battery for 5 minutes, then put the battery back. Make sure the battery is fitted the right way (the + side usually facing up).
If this doesn;t help - let me know.

Rate, please.

You have to wind the watch till it is fully wound (significant resistance should be felt).
It doesn't matter how many times you wind it (1 or even 40) - what matters is the strength of the spring.
Do as follows:
At any time in the morning wind the watch up till you feel there is no more winding left (should be quite tough). Memorize the time you did it.
Leave the watch (or wear it) till it stops completely.
Count the hours your watch did work (from the time you wound it).
Now you know exact power reserve for your watch.
It is advised to wind the watch 2-3 hours before the power reserve is gone.

Rate me.
, please.

I have Swiss legend challenger and it's new. How do you get the second hand moving.


Sorry...

New or not SWISS use the second hand as an early indicator of the battery state.

My memory is that it starts by skipping seconds...
Then the second hand stops...
Then the watch...

ELSE
The movement is bad.

If it is INDEED NEW... Take it back & get
yourself a fresh one.

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


cant see that model watch on the Bulova web site user manuals
http://www.manualslib.com/brand/bulova/watch.html
if unsure if it needs a battery go to a jeweler or watch or battery seller

some model Bulova Watched instructions
IF YOUR NEW WATCH IS A MECHANICAL WATCH
(no battery)
Mechanical watches differ from Quartz watches in several
respects:
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.
FOR THE AUTOMATIC SELF-WINDING
MECHANICAL WATCH
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

Does the Swiss Army Wenger Alpine 72558 Wrist Watch take a battery?


Yes, it has a Swiss Quartz movement, so a battery is what makes your watch work. Need a new battery? Take it an authorized dealer or other business that has the right tool to open the case. It's not worth ruining an expensive watch just to save a couple of dollars to change the battery.

I have a Croton watch. It is a automatic.I can't get it to run.I was informed that the watch had to be wound. The crown{stem} has four settings.I shak it and it runs for about 15 seconds


In the first position (closest to the case but not screwed down if it's a screwdown crown) wind the crown clockwise about 40 turns and it should run fine. The automatic winding system relies on wrist movement to spin a weighted rotor that winds the watch. When you're not wearing the watch or not moving much when you do have it on, it will run down and you have to manually wind it to get it going again. If you wear it everyday and are reasonably active you may never have to wind it but take it off for a day and you will.

New watch is losing 5 to 15 minutes a day


This could be that the battery is slow. Newer swiss watches have a indicator in the movement of the watch that makes the sweep second hand skip every few seconds to indicate that the battery is slow. On regular japan made watches the watch just simply starts slowing down. Your watch could be new but the battery in it could have a long shelf life.
