Question about Ernst Benz ChronoJewel Mid-size 40mm Leather Watch - Black Dial GC8000

1 Answer

Hi there - my 4 year old Ernst Benz Chronolunar has recently started to gain about 1.5 minutes per day. There is no damage, and I keep the watch on a winder when not wearing it. Any thoughts on what might be wrong, and how a non-Benz repair person would adjust it? thanks!

Hi.

If the Chronolunar is gaining 1 minute per day, then there is a fault. Just ensure that the Winding Crown is set into its normal position. That is the only maintenance operation that you can do at user level when such a problem occurs, the rest must be done by a technician.

The only thing to do is contacting Ernst Benz at the number listed on this page (click). They will give you a quote and instructions to have the Chronograph fixed.
This kind of repair is usually not too expensive. I suggest giving the manufacturer a call first , then getting back to us.

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.

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

Yes, it is quite difficult to get the replacement parts from Switzerland and sometimes takes very long time. In my experience the longest was 9 months for the balance wheel.

Watch goes slow when wearing it but keeps time when not wearing it Because I started having a problem with an old reliable Acqua quartz analog watch running slow,  I replaced it with a new Timex quartz...


There is nothing wrong with your watch. Probably it's the one measuring heart rate and pulse (heart beats per second).
Use your users manual to set the watch.
By the way: Timex is one of the worst watch producers.

I have an Oris BC3 which was never a great time keeper; gaining or losing 5-10 seconds per day. Recently, it started to gain at an alarming rate and I took it to be cleaned and regulated at a watch...


Take your watch back to the watchmaker and ask to regulate the watch again. After a decent repair watch shouldn't loose or gain that much and if properly regulated and tested can keep good time. ORIS is using the same Swiss made ETA movements as Tag Heuer, Ebel, Montblanc, Tissot, Maurice Lacroix etc. These are very good mechanical movements and can be adjusted to allmost perfect timekeeping.

Watch gains time (at least 5 minutes per day); also Chronometer registers don't work


Nice watch!

Really worth it to bring it in to GOOD watch tech center (or mail it to Rolex in NYC) - expect to spend 'bout $200 for a cleaning and adjustment. This needs to be done every 5 years or so - the price of owning a fine mechanical watch.

Drop into any Rolex retailer for help with using the buttons.....

Good luck!
