Longines watch problem

Hi, my friend has a ladies titanium Longines watch, battery operated. It's about 9 years old, for the last year now, it works for about 4 weeks than loses about 3-4 hours quite suddenly, during this time of losing, the 2nd handle literally jumps every 5 seconds instead of going around smoothly. It has been serviced and looked at by 4 or 5 different watch repairers... all are baffled and say there is nothing wrong... but I have seen the problem and it is there!!

Das Uhr müssen Batterie. Wenn Aku fast leer dann wechseln müssen dieses. Dann springen alle 8 Sekunden Zeiger im Kreis sich drehen.

Some longines watch has built-in battery gauge. When battery is low, the second hand jumps every four seconds. If you have new battery installed and the problem persists then there is a short circuit somewhere that drinks a lot of battery juice.

I have a geneve quartz 14k gold mans watch dont no how to take apart to put battery in.


mcdevito75 here, Battery usually lasts 1 year and longer, even if you did change the battery yourself now, you"d forget for a year or even longer next time battery needeed to be changed, I know I did. Add to this you can easily destroy your watch with in-correct handleing. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery change $10--$15.00 and peace of mind.

GW-1500A Casio has to be sunlight every day otherwise it stops


Hi gregbrands,

If your watch is several years old, I would recommend sending it back to Casio for service and battery replacement. Contrary to what you may hear about solar-powered watches, the rechargeable batteries do not always last for 10-20 years. I've seen some go out in 2-3 years. This is a shorter lifespan than most standard lithium watch batteries.

You may have an authorized Casio service center near you also. If not, contact Casio at the following numbers:

For Repair support in USA at 1-800-706-2534 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00a.m. - 5:00pm EST, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.) For Technical support in USA at 1-800-435-7732 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 8:00pm EST for all products, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m)

The cost of your watch well justifies this kind of service, plus, they will assure it remains waterproof up to its specifications.

Let me know if I can help further.

Thanks, Bill

How do I ajust the time in a watch 100 years old,


I would expect that pulling out the winder and turning it will move the hands.

If it will not pull out, it could be that the winder screws in for security. Try turning the winder anticlockwise and the pulling it out.

Can I use an ordinary button cell in a seiko kinetic


I have been trained by a Master watch maker and I have worked on many Seiko Kinetic watches. Yes the original watches came with a capacitor that is charged by your arm movement. But unfortunately, they seem to only last a few years. All replacements are now done with a Lithium Ion battery that is much better and lasts longer than the original capacitor. This is the correct solution and don't try to use a battery type that is used in other quartz watches.

Carrera automatic. stops with 8 hours of non wearing


Hi

I hate to be blunt be if it stops after 8 hours of wear, it may need a service! Most watches (particularly automatics which winds constitantly, when being worn).

Take it to your local watchmaker for a assessment? If it's less then 2 years old take it back to your place of purchase with reciepts as most swatch group (rado, longines, and tag etc) have a 2 year international g/t (that what we have here in australia and way, please consult your warranty card for verification!)

Hi Murbilpov,

thank you for using fixya, you have a very fine piece of jewelry. it appears that your watch needs cleaning right on the knob and adjust mechanism. as per a service document from longines, a possible build-up or a broken first gear may cause this issue.

you may refer to their official statement when it comes to cleaning and having the watch repaired.

1) Where should I send a Longines watch that needs to be repaired, adjusted or serviced?If your Longines watch needs to be repaired, adjusted or serviced, werecommend that you bring or send it (well padded and by registereddelivery in the latter case) to your nearest Longines authorizedservice centre.

2) Is the repair of a Longines watch that is more than 20 years old still possible?Yes, we still repair vintage watches at our head workshop in St-Imier.
However, without having the watch to hand, it is impossible for us tojudge its state and to know if all the necessary spare parts for therepair are still available.
Therefore, we kindly suggest that you send your watch via the nearest Longines authorized servicecentre to the Longines head office in Switzerland. Upon receipt andafter analysis of your watch, we will send you our comments and a priceestimate for the repair of your watch.
3) How often do you recommend having a maintenance service carried out on a Longines watch?We would like to draw your attention to the fact that a watch used daily is running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week non-stop.
The frequency of the maintenance service depends on the type of watch, the climate and the care taken by the watch wearer.
In general, it is necessary to have your watch controlled andserviced at least once every 4 - 5 years, just like any other precisemechanical device. This guarantees the reliability and rate precisionof your watch.
4) Which operations are included in a complete maintenance service?The following operations should be included in the price of a complete maintenance service:
– complete dismantling of the movement, cleaning, oiling, reassembling, regulating and the checking of functions;
– repair or replacement of movement components that are either worn or faulty;
–replacement of the following parts: glass, crown, push-pieces, sealsand battery if a quartz calibre (parts included in the price of theservice, with the exception of shaped mineral glasses and sapphirecrystals);
– restoration of the water-resistance (if a water-resistant model);
– refurbishing of the case or bracelet (two-tone, gold-plated and PVD-coated cases and bracelets, cleaning only);
The above service standards are only valid for the Longines head office in Switzerland.
5) Which operations are included in a partial maintenance service?The following operations should be included in the price of a partial maintenance service:
– during each partial basic repair, Longines undertakes to check theregulation of the movement and replace the glass (if necessary), thepipe, the crown, the push-pieces, the seals and the battery in the caseof a quartz movement (these parts are included in the price, with theexception of shaped mineral glasses, sapphire crystals, and restorationservices carried out on the dial, case and bracelet. Parts made out ofnoble metals will be invoiced separately);
– restoration of the water-resistance (if a water-resistant model) and cleaning of the case and bracelet;
Any repair that necessitates the replacement of a part, or any servicementioned in point 7 automatically involves a partial basic service.

Hope this helps, should you have other questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

For sure it is time to replace that old capacitor and replace it with the latest solution that uses a Lithium Ion battery. Find a good experienced repair person to do this for you. I do this daily and I am a Certified Master Horologist/watch repairman.. Ron at TimelyWatchRepair.com
