Re: new watch

Just wear it for a few hours. It draws power from the natural motion of your wrist as you move around like normal. It should start up in a few hours and you'll just need to reset the time.

The second hand won't tick

On many Invicta watches, the large hand which points towards 12 o'clock is not a second hand. It is the hand used with the stopwatch function. If yours is a chronograph, the second hand, if there is one, may be one of the three small dials on the watch face. There are a number of movements used in Invicta watches and the operating instructions can differ from movement to movement. The battery also will be different depending on the movement.

My omega deville ladies prestige quartz is losing time. There is no second hand on the watch and the minute hand seems to tick every 10 secs or so. It has just had a new battery replaced by omega...

Yes. The minute hand ticking every 10 seconds is normal. Losing time is either battery or a movement malfunction. Only a trained watchmaker (or presumably Omega) can determine which. Take it back to Omega

My watch keeps stoping but my battery is new

If your watch keeps time for a while, then stops and starts erratically, you most likely have one of several common problems.
1. You might have a bad battery. Sounds silly, but watch batteries have a limited shelf life, and if you installed a battery that's already been in a blister pack for a few years, the battery itself could be the problem.
2. Your "set stem" is not completely pushed in. Quartz watches are designed to stop ticking when the set stem is pulled out. They'll start up again when you push the stem completely in. There's a little finger or spring-loaded prong to keep the stem in or out. Sometimes, that little prong can break off from natural use. When that happens, the stem will work itself out enough to stop the watch from ticking. Natural movement on your hand will push it back in, and the movement will take off again. Check to see that you feel a firm "click" when you push the stem all the way in. Sometimes, when changing a battery, the movement will shift inside the case just enough that the stem doesn't quite catch in the locked, "full-in" position.
3. Your battery has a bad connection. Make sure that the positive and negative terminals of the battery are in good contact with the appropriate surfaces. I have used a tiny piece of aluminum foil at times to increase pressure on the watch battery so that it makes better contact.
4. Your watch movement has dirt in it that is jamming the gears. Modern quartz watches are amazing devices--a tiny amount of force from the pulse motor operates an intricate gear system that moves all the watch hands and day/date wheels. Even a tiny speck of dust in the wrong place on a gear can gum up the works and cause a watch to start and stop. Usually this will happen at set time intervals or at the same time every day, because that's when a particular gear tooth comes into play.
Closely related to this is an actual bent or broken gear tooth. Same symptoms.
A watchmaker can test the gear train by placing your watch in a special testing machine that spins the gears much faster than usual. If the watch hangs up from time to time, it's suggestive of problems in the gear train. Sadly, fixing the problem by cleaning the watch may cost more than replacing the entire watch.
These are the most common causes for this behavior. Hands that rub up against one another, or a defective quartz crystal are two other potential causes, but this should serve as a fairly good checklist for obvious problems.
Good luck!

The watch keeps stopping even though seems to be wound properly.

I looked at their web site and all the Galbee models that I found (I didn't find yours) had a quartz movement.

If yours is new, then a trip to a dealer is in order. If is it not new, then a trip to the dealer to replace the battery is needed.

If you wish to examine their web site to check the type of movement that you have, go to and have a rummage around through their site.

Watch not working!... no use if i put a new battery..... the guy says i had to change the battery immediately and now my watch got spoilt by the old seems it leaked and spoilt...... now how...

mcdevito75 here, Sadly, once a battery, any battery leaks, it leaks out acid that eats away metal. Once your watch Battery leaked acid, it ate away electrical contacts, wires as thin as hairs, and tiny linkages with--in the quartz movement of your watch, ----- there is no reversal of this acid corrosion. You have 2 choices, 1 and if this is possible, have your watch repair person replace the quartz movement with a new one, if replacement movement is available, and 2 replace the entire watch. Sorry.

Can not change the date on a rolex watch it is a replica one. Not a real one. ONly brand new and the hands are not moving and is not ticking. does it require a battery?

No, Rolex replicas did not require battery and do not work quite often. Movement in your watch is very poor quality and to start it going you have to see the watch repairer. Only if he/she will accept to lay hands on replica watch, you have a 50% chance your watch will work.This is why replicas are cheap.

Tissot wristwatch model PR 516 GL

I guess you never overhauled your watch.Every mechanism has it's limits - so does the watch movements. Your watch has ETA Swiss made mechanical movement which is very good and reliable, but you have to take care of it from time to time. Mechanical movements are designed to last almost forever if they are looked after and yours isn't an exception. Bring it down to the local watchmaker and ask to overhaul it. It will run as new again and will not let you down. It is recommended to overhaul mechanical watches every 4-6 years. If this will be done, your watch will happily tick-tock on your grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand children's wrist and they will remember you with a few good words and respect.

Differentiating omega model 2561.80 and a model 2531.80

The only way to find out what model of Omega you actually own is to open it.  This should have been done by whoever you already brought it to.  Omega only prints their model #'s on the movement inside the watch.  If you open the watch, look on the movement, you'll know what model you own.

Anne Klein 10 8755svtt watch will not keep ticking

First you have to find out if your watch is (as you say) automatic. If it is, then it is NOT kinetic and you will need a proper watchmaker to get it going.
My experiance is: there are NO automatic or kinetic watches in Anne Klein range. All of them are or were battery driven. Might be you came across the one auto, but it's hard to believe.
To make sure: Try wind it up. If you don't hear the specific sound, this is not an auto watch. If the winder(crown) is easily moving back and forth- your watch is battery driven.
Do not rate me yet, as this is not a solution, just an advice.
Want your watch working again?- Let me know, I'll guide you how to do that.
