Automatic watches are mechanical (spring driven) and they are wound by the gentle swinging of the arm as you walk.

If yours has stopped, then it needs to re-wound by swinging it side to side (keeping the watch face level).

You will need to do this for some time (as many as 300 times, according to one maker).

When fully would the watch should run for about 3 days if not worn.

These watches thrive on use!

Grand Carrera Chronograph Calibre 17 RS Seconds hand My GRAND CARRERA 17` HANDS RUNS FOR ABOUT 10 MINS BUT STOPS AT 12 in a cycle of 10 minutes but doesn't lose time. What is the solution if there b?


That sounds like it is on a chronograph split timing cycle. Read the manual and reset it.

When you hit the cancel or reset, all the hands will spin a circle and end up at 12.

My WAF2110 will ocassionally lose about 20 mins for no reason,also does this watch have an internal battery.


Automatic watches are spring driven and therefore do not have a battery.

Automatic watches thrive on being used and if you do not wear them sufficiently, they will run down and stop (or perhaps they run slowly before stopping).

Your watch should run for 38 hours before stopping.

My Carrera automatic does not keep time, it loses at least 2 minutes a day


2 minutes a few months is OK but 2 minutes a day is too much. Bring it to service center for clean & service.

My watch stops very often its tag heuer grand carrera calibre 17 rs2 automatic one what do i need to do for continuous running of my watch


It rather depends what you mean by "very often".

An automatic watch will run for 2-3 days before stoping if it is not used.

These watches thrive on being used and are best used every day.

It could be that your watch needs cleaning (I had one that was like that when I bought it and I had it cleaned and it ran for years after that).

I have a Tag Heuer Grand Carrera. It worked perfectly for a year. But now, it doesnt work. When I shake the watch, it starts and then stops again after few minutes. I was told to wind it. But I dont know...


If your watch is "automatic" then would I be right in thinking you took it off for a few days and it stopped?

If this is the case (since most of the Carrera range are automatic, then the spring will have run down and needs re-winding.

You were correct in thinking that shaking it will re- start it but to keep it going you need to shake it gently from side to side for some time. (One supplier quoted 500 times!) be patient and keep wearing it.

Is it good to change watch movement to a battery ?Watch was overwound.


Hi,

There is no such things as over winding a watch. If it is not an automatic watch then the watch will wind until it stops. If the watch does not run then something else is wrong.

If the watch is an automatic then about 30 winds will fully wind the watch. But, you can continue to wind the watch forever. It will never stop winding. Again, if it does not run after being wound there is something else wrong.

To fix your watch you need to have a qualified watchmaker repair it for you.

Hope this helps,

Tag Carrera CV2014 Date Keeping problem.


Lets get down to the facts.

The watch may have been serviced and may have been the beginning of this problem.

BUT is it really a problem?

Changing a 1230 or 0330 still means its on the correct date in the morning.

I have a TAG HEUER Grand Carrera and the second has stopped


Are you aware that these are automatic watches and need to be moved to keep the watch going, kinetic energy winds up the movement which allows it to keep going, if it is left off your wrist and in a drawer or sat stationary it will stop. Shake it violently (without dropping it) and it will restart.

Your watch is a automatic. All automatics need to wind-up before being worn at first , or if not worn all the time. Automatics will work with-out being wound ,but will not keep time. Wind your watch at least 50 turns (using the crown) or shake about 150 times , and then try it . Automatics need that back-up power to insure it's accuracy.
