Hi,
You may not believe me - but I think it is You.
There are some people who stop watches from working - and affect electrical items.
These people are called SLIders - because of the original research on "Street Light Interference"
Be very careful around electrical items when you are stressed - or you could blow lightbulbs.
- Or it could be temperature this watch is responding to. If it stops when left somewhere warm - it's temperature related.

WATCH ON DESKFOR 24 HOURS KEEPS PERFECT TIME'WHEN I WEAR WATCH IT LOSES IN 1 HR. LOSES 40 MIN. BATTERY NEW. OMEGA CONSTELLATION 30 YEARS OLD CAN YOU HELP?


When a watch is on a desk, the balance wheel is vertical, when you are wearing it the balance wheel horizontal.

Has the watch been dropped onto a hard surface?

If the balance wheel bearing is worn or has suffered a large shock, then the shaft may move in its bearings or the bearings damaged, which may give the problem you decscribe.

Take it to a watch repairer to have it adjusted or repaired.

I have bought a new daytona but after every few hours it just stops anf i have to reset it again.its quite frustrating


A Rolex watch is automatic.It needs to be worn 8 hours per day to store enough power to run 36 hours off the wrist.Assuming that you are wearing the watch daily if it still stops there is a problem with the auto winding or mainspring.As a new watch it will be under the Rolex guarantee so return it to the place of purchase.If you dont have a guarantee contact www.rolexrepairs.co.uk for advice or a free estimate.

Juts got the watch, wound it, worked then stoped, wound dead


These watches are self winding (mechanical spring), so need to be worn (or gently oscillated) to wind them up.

The catalogue for this watch says it should run for 72 hours when fully wound.

Depending on when the watch was made, it could be that it needs a clean.

Try wearing it for a few days to see if it keeps going.

Getting moisture under the face of the watch just from wearing. This is not putting it in water at all


This usually happens when the watch is carried from low temperature to the room with higher temperature and it's called condensation. You need to dry out your watch and check if all the gaskets are in tact, flexible and lubricated. Don't leave it for a long, as later those tiny drops of condensate will sit down on gear wheels, causing them to rust and as a consequence will stop the watch working. Any watch repair shop will be able to help within a matter of an hour.
Rate me, plz.

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.

Problem winding a Invicta Skeloton Mechanical Stainless Watch


The Tag Heur repair center says an automatic watch must go through an "initiation" process. They recommend winding manually 40 revolution of the crown clockwise. You must wear an automatic watch at least eight hours per day. Repat the initiation if the watch is not worn for 20 hours or so.

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.

Restarting my Citizen Promaster Eco Divers 200 Watch


Since it's eco-drive you can just wear it for a few hours and it should self-wind. The problem is that when it sits still for more than a few days it winds down. It gets its power from the natural movement of your wrist as you walk around.

Once it starts ticking again you'll just have to set the time correctly.
