Question about Watches

1 Answer

Hi, my husband has a Tag watch which worked fine the first 1 1/2 years or so that we purchased it. After that time, it stopped working and won't start back up. We've changed the battery several times which hasn't solved the problem.

There are several things that could be causing this. First is that if the person replacing the battery did not know what they were doing they could have damaged the movement. One of the most common parts that get damaged is the coil. These are wound with wire thinner than a hair and so sliding anything across the coil can damage or break it.

Another common thing is the contact for the bottom side of the battery gets pushed and bent out of place. Most times this can be straightened out. But there are times when it has to be replaced.

The circuit could be bad or the whole movement may need cleaning.

Hope this helps,

Does anybody know the correct part number or provide a link where I can purchase a Bezel ratchet spring for Tag Heuer WAC1113.BA0850 Formula 1?


Hi thank you for answers but it doesn't help me given I already have the bezel off. What I actually need is the actual size of the Spring? I know they are available to buy on eBay and watches.com.uk but to not even bother to respond to you inquiries for some reason?

Does anybody know the correct size of the "friction/ ratchet bezel spring" on a Tag Heuer WAC1113.ba0850 model 2004 - 2007 ?

Hi, I've got a automatic tag aquaracer watch that loses about 4 mins every month (about 4 yrs old). Common problem? Can this be fixed ? Or is it a lemon of a watch? Any advice welcome. Cheers.


If it's automatic and 4 years old, it's probably time for a watch overhaul. Auotmatic watches need overhauled about once every 4-5 years. It's normal for it to lose time, but 4 minutes per month may be a little extreme. So, get the watch overhauled. I would recommend Tag Heuer to overhaul it.

Hi, My TAG has been in and out of service three times, the hands came off, the winding mechanism stopped working and the tertiary timing hand has come away this week. I wear it for work [in an office]...


I have this same exact watch with the same problem. In November of this year, my watch just stopped with an inability to autowind itself. I'm a little mad because I have babied this watch, while only wearing it on special occasions (10x). What's the problem?

Where can I purchase bb0316 links for women's tag heuer band?


Hi,

If your watch is older than 4 years you can't buy links unless you get real lucky and find a watchmaker that happens to have some on hand.

Swatch sold Tag Heuer about 4 years ago to Louis Vitton. LVMH did not purchase the parts for watches made prior to the sale of the company. So all those parts are no longer available.

If your watch is less than 4 years old you can contact Tag Heuer directly for the links.

Hope this helps,

Can tag heuer link bracelet be repaired? seperating in the middle


It depends.

First if the Tag watch is older then it cannot be repaired by Tag and Tag won't have any parts for it.

If it is new, Tag should have the parts and a watchmaker or Tag themselves could repair your band. Although I would suggest a watchmaker over Tag if you can find one willing to deal with Tag for the parts. Expect this to take months to get the right link parts.

If it is older then we have repaired some of these with laser welding. Although there is no guarantee as to how long the welds will last, it does seem to work out for a while.

The ones we have done have lasted several years. In fact we just had a customer send his watch back in for a battery and we had welded his Tag clasp back together about 3+ years ago and it is still working just fine.

Hope this helps,

Carrera automatic. stops with 8 hours of non wearing


Hi

I hate to be blunt be if it stops after 8 hours of wear, it may need a service! Most watches (particularly automatics which winds constitantly, when being worn).

Take it to your local watchmaker for a assessment? If it's less then 2 years old take it back to your place of purchase with reciepts as most swatch group (rado, longines, and tag etc) have a 2 year international g/t (that what we have here in australia and way, please consult your warranty card for verification!)
