Yes, this is a dead battery. Your watch will have two batteries in it. One for the time keeping and one for the animation.

When you have the one replaced it is a good idea to have the other as well.

Hope this helps,

Mk 5473 watch is loosing time

Okay, so I'd the watch dial says automatic or manual wind you should be able to wind the watch to get it to start working. If the second hand is sweeping buy the minute and hour or just minute hand does not go around properly there are different issues. One. It could be the pinion that is loose, (major repair) two, the watch needs an overhaul meaning cleaned and re oiled(less likely). If only minute hand is giving trouble, its loose(the 2nd hand) or the pinion is loose.

I have an old LED Jubilee watch made in 1978 by the Longines-Wittnauer watch company. It is not keeping time. It looses about 1 minute a day. There is a screw inside on the movement. Do you know if that is...

No, the screw you are talking about is not to set the timing. The timing for the watch looks like a small lever. If you are going to attempt to time it yourself, you are going to half to adjust it, but trial and error. My husband has been a watchmaker for over 25 years, and I know he would ask you when was the last time you had the watch to the jewelers for an overhaul. I would suggest you take it to a jewelery store and have them clean and overhaul it. This way it gets fresh oil on the gears, that may be all it needs. It's kind of unlikely that you need to adjust the timing when the watch has been closed. ALSO-this is very important... Do not touch the coil inside the watch, it will cost you ALOT more to repair the watch, IF a watchmaker can repair it.
i hope this helped!

Hi i have a seiko 4r15 00d0 watch and i have had a problem in the past with time keeping off the wrist it gains 35mins in an hour now when i wear it everyday its ok. now i am experiencing a different...

It sounds like your watch is in need of some serious attention!

I am not familar with this watch but if it has a balace wheel, the change in orientation could be the cause of the time keeping problem. When on the wrist, the balance wheel shaft is horizontal but when your put it down overnight the shaft may be vertical. If there some looseness in the bearings, then this is likely to cause the problem described.

Now that there is a crown problem as well...

If you don't know where their nearest service center is to you, go to their wbe site ( and look it up.

The light was fading on my Indiglo Timex watch but it was still keeping good time, so I had a new battery installed by a Walmart employee. The light now works on the watch but the watch stopped keeping...

mcdevito75 here, Your Timex watch is most likely an Indiglo meaning light, The battery supplies power to to Quatz mechanism for time keeping and for the light. There is a very good possibility that 1 or 2 of the contacts between the battery and the Quatrz mechanism were lost during the new battery installation. While you can"t rule out that the Quartz mechanism and or the light may be wearing down, you still have to suspect the battery even a new battery, look for a small watch repair shop in your area and try another battery, let the jewler know of your watches problem so he / she can properly install the battery and ensure the contacts between the Quartz and the battery are being made.

Watch looses time when I wear it about 5 min an

Sounds like a problem with the balance wheel.(I assume that it does have one?)

They are designed to compensate for temperature but yours does not appear to be operating correctly.

Take it to a watch repairer for adjustment.

Hands cannot keep time

There is nothing you can do yourself, because your watch has a loose cannon pinion and for tightening it the special watchmakers tool is obligatory. You have to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask watchmaker to do that. No need to go to any specific watch repair shop, as any decent watchmaker has the tool and can do the job. Rate me, plz.

If your watch is less than 2 years old then they may service it for free, and if it is that new I would take it back to point of purchase for assistance. Even though Rolex's are Chronometers they are not known for their ability to keep near perfect time. If you are losing only 6 seconds a day then you are still over 99% accurate and it does not really get much better than that (that means you may loose a couple mninutes a month. A watch winder that you set your watch in while not wearing can keep it spinning/ winding and therefore may increase accuracy.
If your watch is loosing a lot of time (half an hour a day) or if the watch is more than 5 years old, it likely needs some servicing. Oils can harden and thicken within your watch and this will affect the performance. Rolex recommends servicing your watch every 5 years or so to keep it in peak condition. A usual service entails a cleaning, oiling and regulating; this usually costs from $350 to $700 depending on where you go and if nothing else is wrong with your watch.
But again, if you are only loosing a few minutes a day, then your watch is still in good shape and I would not recommend paying the money to get it to work only a small bit better.
