SOURCE: I am trying to set the time zone for Adelaide

Set watch to CHR mode, pull out crown, all dials will return to 0 posn. HR shoul be displayed on left digital panel. Move hour hand by turning crown to posn half way between 12 and one, press top button (MIN should appear in left panel), set min to 6 o'clock posn. Push crown back in and set time for timezone nearest to where you are that is offset by one hour.

The 60-second counter hand shakes slightly when watch is tilted.

I don't think it is normal for hand to move when tilted. what about the warranty? Tissot must cover your watch under the warranty. Mind you I had a similar experience with Samsonite luggage and despite International guarantee, they did not honor. I have lost faith in some brand names.

Cartier Women's Tank Watch

What has been the issue when the repairs have been done? My experience with Tanks is that any reputable watch shop will replace the battery for $20. I don't know why it has cost you so much, but if the model you have is an auto-winder, then there is no way to retrofit a battery - although for $600 someone may be able to change the internal watch out completely.

I have bought a new daytona but after every few hours it just stops anf i have to reset it again.its quite frustrating

A Rolex watch is automatic.It needs to be worn 8 hours per day to store enough power to run 36 hours off the wrist.Assuming that you are wearing the watch daily if it still stops there is a problem with the auto winding or mainspring.As a new watch it will be under the Rolex guarantee so return it to the place of purchase.If you dont have a guarantee contact for advice or a free estimate.

After setting year to 2010, keeps resetting to 2016.

who set set it these have a 5yr guarantee so send it back to citizen ,it may need a new capacitor this is like a battery but it stores the power from solar panel on the face of your watch these always need replacing at sometime within the 5yrs. because it can cause the functions of the watch to malfunction. if you not got the guarantee try a good repairer they may be cheaper then sending bk without guarantee

How much is the capacitor problem in Seiko SNL001 or similar model watches as I get to read reviews abt' capacitor problems appearing in Seiko kinetic watches after 3-4 years and the repair also happens to...

Can be fixed in less than one week and cost is less than $80. See web site for Timelywatch They guarantee their work. And yes, the old capacitors are only good for 3-4 years. All replacements are now with a much better, long lasting Lithium Ion battery.

How to replaced a eco drive battery

The ECO series of Citizen's do not require battery replacement, as they are solar powered. If the watch stops due to a long period of non-use, there is a procedure in the manual as well as the Citizen website on how to get it running again. You will have to expose it to light for several hours (but not with lots of heat such as a car dash) to get it running. If you continue to have trouble, you may have a problem with the watch. I bought my wife a ladies ECO drive about 8 years ago and bought one for myself about 2 years ago and have not had a bit of problems with either. They are extremely good watches and it is nice not to have to worry about "when will the battery die?"

Omega Seamaster gaining about 10 minutes per hour

Hi honestfunguy. Take it back! Omega watches are usually guaranteed for 2 years or even 3 years (Co-axial escapement), so you should not have a problem getting it repaired under warrantee. No way should it be be gaining (or losing) 10 minutes per day, let alone 10 minutes per hour. Could be any number of things, from a broken mainspring to problems with the timing regulator, but they are very complex watches and should not be looked at by anyone apart from Omega whilst in warrantee, otherwise you'll probably void the warrantee. Hope this helps; Eagle58

Phillipe Stark PH1079 watch - Can't get back off to replace bat

There is nothing wrong with your watch. The problem is in tools the jewellers are using for opening the watch.
Despite being under one roof, watchmaking and jewellery are completely different trades and are miles apart. Jewellers usually are equipped with very basic watch repair tools and the case openers are no exeption.
You have to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for watchmaker, not jeweller. Any decent watchmaker will have the right tool to open your watch and replace the battery in a matter of minutes.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Screen not working T Touch Titanium (Totally Useless)

I suggest you have to find the decent watchmaker and do not use dealers services anymore.In my opinion you have been overcharged in both cases.
Consider replacing touch screen if it is damaged and then sell it on ebay (anyway you do not like it). For watch in working order you have to get quite a decent money. If you gonna sell it as it is, you will get pennies only.
Later just buy another make and forget about this unlucky example. :))
