Re: Tag watch second hand skips
Yes it's the battery. Please make sure to take it to someone QUALIFIED This watch requires that all the gaskets be replaced and pressure tested at the time you have the battery replaced

If the second is ticking as normally it is not the battery. If the battery is low the second hand will advance only at 5 second intervals meaning for four seconds the second does not move and on the 5th second it will advance by five seconds. This is a feature unique to Tag Heuer.
This is warning: it's time to change the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature and this is how the low battery power is displayed. However, the watch will keep running correctly for about two weeks.
Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of
that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating
the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by
this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p. Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.
Don't whatever you do allow the watch to be sent to Tag, as they are very likely to state that the watch needs a service at a cost of £125 after having your watch for 8 weeks (they charge £40 for a new battery which is bad enough) . This they do all the time and seems a bit if a scam. They state that the internals need cleaning by their specialists. Lets just think about this. A hermetically sealed watch to 200 meters has got dirty inside! They said this to me and so I asked for the watch back. They had removed the back of the watch, so I had a look inside and in the intervening weeks the run down battery had corroded. Luckily the terminals are gold and resistant, so I replaced the insulating disk which had corroded with a disc of thin plastic from a water bottle label and bought a battery for £1.36 and all has been dandy ever since. If you are concerned to do the same, an independent watch specialist will change the battery and repressurise for between £25-35
