Re: wrong time

You have to wind it and wear it. It will only keep running for up to 40 hours. It is an "automatic" not battery operated.

Re: wrong time

Your watch is an automatic watch which means it winds itself as long as you are wearing it. If you don't wear it for several days it will stop working. To solve this situation buy an automatic watch winder to keep your watch in while you are not wearing it and it will keep the correct time.

I didn't wear my Michele CSX 36 w/ diamond watch for a few days..When I went to put it on the time was wrong. So I tried to correct it and now it has not kept accurate time w/in a 24 hr period. Fo

I am pretty 100 percent sure that Michele CSX 36 diamonds only comes with a swiss quartz movement not an automatic movement.
So the problem seems to be that the battery is dying and need to be replaced. Stopping and going is usually a sign of a battery dying in a swiss quartz movement.
So it should be nothing major and just a battery.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
When you first receive your automatic watch, you must give the watch an initial pre-wind. If you wear it everyday, it will continue to wind itself on your wrist when you move around and walk. If you stop wearing it for more than approximately 2 days, the watch will need to be reset, but will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again. The disadvantage to this is pretty clear. Your watch does not t keep time if you do not wear it constantly. The advantages are that you will never have to replace a battery, the watch keeps great time when it is running, and most of all, this type of movement is exactly what the originals use! If your Automatic is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period the watch needs to be adjusted. All of our automatics have an adjustment screw on the movement just like the originals. Any local jeweler can service these watches.
Best regards! Jewel

Bulova Millenia 100 m,stops running,move it to wind,starts up

When you say "wave wind" do you mean you're waving it around to wind it with the self-winding mechanism? If so, that will only keep it running briefly as you're experiencing. Manually wind the crown about 40 turns clockwise to "fill the tank" and wearing it daily will keep it topped off. Anytime you don't wear it for a day, manually wind it again. As for the cleaning, the inside of the watch doesn't get real dirty but over time the lubricants wear out and thicken which makes the watch run slowly or not as long as it has to work harder to move the gears through the thickened lubricant. A watchmaker can disassemble and clean the old lube out with solvents and then reassemble the watch with fresh lubricants.

Bulova Watch Millennia Motion 96B17 - stops - needs battery????

Dude, of course it stops during the night - it's a perpetual motion / kinetic watch. It doesn't have a conventional battery. When you move your arm (while wearing it), the natural motion of your arm will 'automagically' wind the watch. There's nothing wrong with it - these types of watches always have to be re-set in the morning if you don't wear it to bed (or you don't toss and turn in bed).

Setting time/date on old Seiko

With our 10 year old grandson's help, my husband was able to figure it out. Took a while, but he is now wearing his watch again!
Thanks for the follow-up.

The user guide is wrong

I have a Theorema Parago Automatic through not wearing it regularly it sometimes stops. Winding it wouldn't solve the problem and I couldn't find a solution either on the Theorema site or online so through a series of self help efforts the following is the solution for this watch 1 Set the watch to the correct time date day etc. 2 Wind the watch using the side winder for about 40 revolutions in clockwise rotation 3 Hold the watch in your right and strike it firmly into the stiff palm of your left hand. This gives the winding mechanism a shark shock and kicks it back into life.The watch then works away without a problem.

Watch stops intermittently.

Make sure the dial that is used to set your watch is snug against the frame of the watch. Sometimes when people reset the time on their watches they don't push the dial all the way back in which will cause it to stop. If it is an intermitten problem it may be close but not all the way in. Some watches continue to run when they are being set; whereas, some stop when the dial is pulled to reset them.
