Question about Tissot T-Touch T33159851 Wrist Watch

Tissot T-Touch-Works fine until just about the end of the warranty

Bought my T-Touch in August 05 and all was well until July 07, when the digital display went blank. Local dealer changed the battery and the watch worked for two weeks then dead again. After two more battery replacements in six weeks, the dealer put in a new movement and hey presto four weeks after that the watch has gone dead again. It starts by being unable to synchronize the watch hands with the digital display and no function of any T-Touch features, followed by the blinking of the display and then nothing. Of course, as luck would have it, the warranty is now up and the dealer's asking big bucks to fix. Not too sure I want to fix the damn thing, my cheap Seiko still keeps good time after 5 years. This is sure the last Tissot watch I will be buying. The Swiss can make crap watches after all.

Re: Tissot T-Touch-Works fine until just about the end of...

I suggest writing to Tissot in both your home country and in the head office in Switzerland. Use both email and paper letters. If you can provide documentation of the attempted fixes that will really help your case. Since you had a history of problems you have every right to ask them to stand behind their product. Perhaps there is a new warranty on the replacement movement, for example. You have nothing to lose except a bit of time, paper and postage. You could even ask your dealer to back you up with this -- he or she will still get paid for the work if Tissot agrees to extend the warranty.

Setting my Tissot touch Navigator 3000

Per the manual:
When your battery begins to die, the hands are no longer synced.
After replacing the battery, go into local time mode (pressing the center of the crystal) until "Set" appears. Press the crown. Scroll to "ECO BAT", press and hold the crown for 5 seconds until "SYNCHRO" appears. Use the "+" button to move the minute hand and the "-" to move the hour hand until they are in the upright or 12:00 position.
Either press the crown again or wait until the watch automatically leaves the Set mode. Your hands should now represent the local time.

Hi guys, my Tissot Touch watch has a non sinc problem with the digital and analog time. any solutions? thanks, Rodney

The Tissot Touch watch is expected to need "SYNCHRONIZTION" periodically. (that is, to synchronize the digital and analog portions.) The Tissot manual tells how to do this. This manual came with your watch and is available online from the Tissot website.

good luck, Rodney

BAtt flashing on digital screen although I only

Yes, the flashing battery icon tells you it's time to change the battery.
Despite of that the watches are fitted with brand new batteries when they are leaving manufacturer, there can be a significant period of time till they reach their new owners and the watch battery can be flat (or allmost flat) at the selling point.
I suggest you visit sellers shop again a.s.a.p. and ask for the brand new battery to be fitted under the warranty.

Rate me, please.

Centre Sensor no longer functioning

You are need to send it into tissot for a service. You cannot fix this problem on your own. There is a two year warranty for tissot. Hopefully you will be eligible.
