    The new battery was fitted by a local jeweller who is not necessarily a knowledgable watch man!

    Thanks Crafty 1, but I`m still not sure hoe to fix it. I`ll probably try another jeweller, as you imply. Any other ideas? The watch is less than three yrs old.

    mcdevito75 here, All our friends here at fixya could be correct. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area. I myself have never heard of this problem, but is possible. The battery installed could be in backwards, as to say. Wrong polarity, flip the battery over in it:s seat in the watch. The quartz mechanism also could have gone hay wire on you, if so, the watch has had it.



It sounds like the battery might be in backwards. They do
have polarity, DOES matter how it goes in. Try opening it, and
flip the battery to see if that helps.

It would be easier to tell you more if the age of the watch was posted, but not knowing that I am going to assume it is less then 3 yrs old and in good shape. He goofed! Never be afraid of asking someones experience level when working on something that belongs to you, find out if they are just a clerk in a jewelry store and are getting paid minimum wage and care more about their paycheck then your watch, OR if they have been doing it forever and care if you come back again! "IF" the watch is older then I assumed, or in questionable condition (a few bumps and scratches) then it may have nothing to do with the fact that the battery was just replaced, it really could be it's "time" to expire, pardon the pun!

    It really sounds as though you do need to take it to someone (again), sorry. I would highly suggest that you ask others (family & friends) if any of them have had any work done on watches in your area, (word of mouth is very valuble) and when going to a retailer, ask lots of questions. ex- Do you typically work on this brand? Do you do many watch repairs? Is the person who will be working on my watch here so that I might speak directly to them? Also kep in mind that the batteries that go in watches are just like any other battery, they can die while sitting in a retail store, if you think this might be the case...go back to the place and ask that they take out the one they put in and test it! Good luck.

I have a Tissot 1853 Model No:T52148131, I want to know what battery type to use, because I lost the old one?

Sorry I can't directly answer your question.

There are a limited number of batteries that fit watches and the quality of the battery is the most important to provide a good lifespan and be less likely to leak.

Anyone who regularly replaces watch batteries will instantly know which type fits so I suggest you visit your local friendly watch and clock repairer who will fit a quality battery and replace the O ring if needed and all for a nominal fee.
If local traders aren't used they will be lost.

Does the Tissot PR516 T044.417.21.051.00 use a battery? My second hand is not moving when i start the timer and the night vision is terrible.

Yes, it does require a battery. I believe a 394 is the correct one to fit, but I'd suggest you took it to a professional rather than attempt a battery change yourself. I hope this helps.

How do I reset my tissot t touch expert

Steps to Synchronize the Hands
  1. Press the centre pusher (T). The watch should beep once.
  2. Touch the centre of the touch-sensitive face until opt appears, in opt select 24H Cm (or 12H Fft or 24H Fft or 12H Cm) is shown in the digital LCD display.
  3. Press and hold the centre pusher (T) for approximately 5 seconds. The watch will beep once and then again, a second time, after 5 seconds have passed. After the second beep, the digital LCD display should read SYNCHRO. If not, return to step one.
  4. Press the upper pusher (+) to advance the hour hand until it is positioned exactly at 12:00. (PH press T button to to switch to minute hand adjust)
  5. Press the lower pusher (-) to advance the minute hand until it is also positioned exactly at 12:00.
  6. When both hands are aligned together and pointing directly at 12:00, press the centre pusher (T) to save the setting. The hands of the watch are now synchronized

My tissot navigator does not react anymore, I touched the screen and know it stays at the chrono part and the digital keeps blinking. Is this a battery problem?

It is a battery problem. All you need is new battery for your watch. After fitting the new battery your watch will be back to normal. Rate me, plz.

I adjusted the hands when on usin the compass function and when the hands reverted back to the time it was not correct even though the digital time reads just fine..How can I get the watch hands to mimic...

The manual will tell you how to do this. To obtain a copy type "" into your search engine and this should take you to the manual page for your watch.

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.

Tissot PRS 516

Your Tissot watch is a chronograph. The large second hand is for the stop watch only. There is another second hand by the six that is for the time. To get the large second hand to move hit the top right button, that works the stop watch. If you already knew this and your large second hand is not going around then there is something wrong with the watch either a battery or needs service.
