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.

My son gave me a Anne Kline watch a year ago but it has stopped running. I changed the battery twice but it still runs some and than stop. What do I need to do?


Watch might need a superior or best quality battery that hasn't been in stock for long...

Few modern watches need a new battery every year and most in my experience will last at least a couple of years so the watch is probably faulty and it is a shame you didn't return it while it was under warranty.
A decent jeweller/horologist should be able to check this and advise you.

If you have any problems with a new watch you should go first to the supplier and if they can't help, contact the maker.

Most makers have a service depot who can help you.

You can find your nearest service depot by going to the Invicta web site (http://www.invictawatch.com/) and clicking on "service " in the menu bar at the top and there is a link to instruction manuals.


The battery should be OK unless the watch has been part of a window display for a considerable time. (Most of the batteries I have used lasted 1-3 years).

Eco-drive watch stop working, after it was in jewelry box for over a year.


First, be sure that the stem is fully pressed in. Pulling out the stem to set the watch stops the action.
The Eco-Drive is still a battery watch. It just has a solar/light powered recharge system built in. The battery will run down after a year of no light. Place the Eco-Drive in bright sunlight for a couple of days in order to recharge the built-in battery. You may recharge the watch in fluorescent light as well, it just takes longer.

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.

TAG watch is running fast


You need to find a qualified watchmaker to correct this problem.

If the movement was replaced twice the same problem would not be happening again and again unless there is something you are doing that puts the watch in some kind of field to magnetize it or the place you took it to did not really do anything.

My guess is they did not do anything since you say they oiled the crystals. Just oiling a watch will not solve this problem. A qualified watchmaker would know this.

Hope this helps,

My Quartz sports watch works, loses time, had three months, .


Sounds like battery is failing. Time to replace it! :-) Sears stores usually have a watch repair counter...or find a reputable watch repair business. (Even if the watch is new...its still possible the battery could be failing because you have no way of knowing when it was originally installed! They typically last about 2-3 years depending on age and condition of watch!)

Good luck!

Internal battery seems to have no power


Battery in your watch is called ''CAPACITOR'' and it gets charged by light. The best source, of course, is sunlight and the worst is ordinary lamp.
By placing your watch for a few hours in a sunny window should keep your watch going for about 5 - 7 days.
As this is not happening, you need to replace capacitor. After doing that your watch will keep working and charging as brand new.
Capacitor replacement is not complicated job and any decent watchmaker can do it for you.
Do not forget to rate, please.

My Eco-Drive watch is 8 minutes fast.


Take it to your citizen dealer. There is probably a problem with the actual movement of the watch and unless you know how to take the watch apart and diagnose the movement then you would not be able to figure it out.

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.
