I'm going to venture to say that this watch is a counterfeit, has a quartz movement and needs the battery replaced.

Replaced watch battery on bulova millennia alarm and it skips to two second interval / I need to find out how to program it to 1 second interval


Watches, well most quartz anyway, are programmed to alert it's wearer to the fact that the battery in the watch is growing weak and needs to be replaced. There are watches that use a 2 second split and then there are those, like my Bucherer quartz that hops at 5 second intervals. Remember, just because you put a "new in the package" battery in your watch does not guarantee that it is new by way of battery power. Some batteries go completely dead while sitting on shelves waiting to be sold. For those of you that don't know, take it from a man of experience, never... ever... ever... store loose change and opened, new or used, coin or watch batteries in the same junk drawer. They will combine chemically to cook off the battery cells like a .22 rounds and pieces can fly pretty fast. Have a great day!

Your battery may indeed be dead. Watches sometimes sit on store shelves for months and even years before you get them. If you have a stuck button it may be the light button and may have prematurely drained your battery. Either way a watchmaker would be able to determine the problem.

Screen goes blank and it says chg in small letters on the right lower side


Actually, "chg" means "change" in this case. Since this is a solar watch, it is not necessary to change the battery. I let my watch sit in the dark for a few months and I came back to the same screen when I dug it out of a drawer. Simply allow the solar cells to get some light to recharge. I left the watch under a lamp overnight because I needed a stopwatch in the morning, and it was charged by the time I woke up. Also, this watch has a power saver function you can turn on and off. If the watch is left in the dark for about an hour, the screen will turn off but the normal functions will continue in order to save power..

New watch not working


I would go and get the battery replaced. Watches will run off the battery even when sitting on the shelf in the stores. Replacement are usually less than $10 at the mall or check a jewelry store.

Screen not working T Touch Titanium (Totally Useless)


I suggest you have to find the decent watchmaker and do not use dealers services anymore.In my opinion you have been overcharged in both cases.
Consider replacing touch screen if it is damaged and then sell it on ebay (anyway you do not like it). For watch in working order you have to get quite a decent money. If you gonna sell it as it is, you will get pennies only.
Later just buy another make and forget about this unlucky example. :))

Replacement watch batteries


When you buy your watch the manufacture puts in a battery that is made to last 5 years so that the watch can sit on the shelf and not need the battery changed before you have even bought it. Batteries you buy from a store or a watchrepair usually last about 1.5 years. Sometimes you can find a watchmaker who carries the five year batteries, but most people don't want to pay the $25-$30 to have it installed so most places won't carry them for rear they will never sell.I would also tell you NOT to buy your batteries from a grocery store or a Wallgreens type place because those batteries could have been sitting there for months, or even over a year. If you go to a watch repair they go through so many batteries that almost evey time you are getting a fresh battery.
