Question about Sector 450 2653450035 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

I have 2 sector watches. BOTH lose time when I'm visiting the UK but keep accurate time when I'm in the U.S. Both have new batteries. It's really bizarre. Any ideas what the problem might be?

I have looked at their web site and cannot identify your watch from the number given, as they do not give numbers to their models.

The only thing that may change between countries is the transmission frequency of the radio timing pulses. (This assumes that your watch is an "atomic accuracy" type, which registers local transmitters.)

If this is not the case, then your watch is in the same class as those that work accurately when being worn but not when they are taken off (or vice versa). A mystery all round!

Watch loses time


If your watch is brand new, then the best course of action is to return it to where you purchased it. A modern quartz watch (even the really cheap ones) should not lose time at that rate. You paid good money and got a substandard watch - take it back.

Watch erratic. Slows suddenly between days of working well.


Sounds like a failing battery to me. Its very common for a watch to loose time when battery needs to be changed.

IT IS RUNNING SLOW EVEN THOUGH IT'S BEEN WOUND.


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.
