Question about Watches

The time never stays and it seems to be running fast. Is there a way to fix that? I have to set the time back every couple days in order to have the accurate time showing.

Hello, I have a Tissot Veloci-T watch, purchased about 10 days ago, and I'm not sure if there is a mechanical problem or just merely a battery issue. The hour and minute hands do not sync up on...


The list of problems is impressive and if you still have the proof of purchase, it should go back to Tissot for repair or replacement. It shouldn't matter where you bought it, so long as you can prove that it is within the warranty period.

(It sounds as though it has been dropped onto a hard surface)

If you haven't got any proof of purchase, then you will have to pay for any repairs.

Watch running fast about 5 seconds per minute. it had stopped because didn't wear it for a few days. didn't wind it at all. just set time and it started but now running way too fast. any...


mcdevito75 here, Depending on how new your IWC watch is, without running at all can be bad in the way that the oil in the movement can settle and more or less drain off the moveing parts, and without the oil distributed thru out the movement, your watch could run a bit fast. Re--starting your watch as you"ve done will help, re-distribute the oil, in the mean time switch your watches position on your wrist every couple of hours, crystal on top of wrist, then 2--3 hours later crystal turnned under the wrist, it may take a day or two for the condition to correct itself, if I'm right. Hopefully you have a warrantee with IWC on your watch. Hope this helps.

Watch has been running fine, now running fast.


HI there,

If you have an Automatic Wrist watch. Some adjustment has to do inside the watch. You better bring the unit to any local watch repair shop to adjust or correct the polarity of the energizer.

Hope this helps.

To sync the correct 12 hour with your day you need to set the date to the day before (if today is 21, then make sure the day window reads 20). Then spin the analog hands until the the date window turns to 21. At this point your watch is reading 12 AM (midnight). Then keep turning to set the correct time. If it is 9 am then stop the hands the first time you hit the 9 marker. If it is 9pm, then keep turning until the SECOND TIME your hour hand meets the 9 marker. This is now set for 9 pm.
That's how you do it. If you need more clarification let me know.

Date setting on Citizen 0510 chronograph


Try this method. Set the date until it reads a couple of days in the past and then set the correct time. Of course do not touch your date or time settings between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Wait until the next day, then move the hour hand forward until you reach the current date with the correct time.

Runs Fast


Usually when a watch with a mechanical movement is running fast its is because the adjustment on the hairspring is advanced to far. Since it wasn't running fast to begin with I can assume its because something was knocked loose. It is possible that a tiny drop of oil was on the hairspring and by knocking the watch two coils are stuck together by the oil. (this usually only happens if it has been over oiled by an amature watch repairer) Magnitization is possible but pretty unlikely, unless you play with Big coils of wire that are carrying a LOT of current. Either way, unless you know what you're doing and have the right tools, you are looking at taking it to a Tag repair center. Since a simple tune up can cost about $250, I'd expect to pay $400 to $500 for that one. Welcome to the wonderful world of high end watches.
