If it is a mechanical watch (with a balance wheel), then the wheel might be loose in its bearings (which is why it works when you take it off, since the shaft is vertical).

If you have dropped it on a hard surface, then this could be the cause of your problem.

You need to take it to a watch repairer for adjustment.

I didn't wear my Michele CSX 36 w/ diamond watch for a few days..When I went to put it on the time was wrong. So I tried to correct it and now it has not kept accurate time w/in a 24 hr period. Fo


I am pretty 100 percent sure that Michele CSX 36 diamonds only comes with a swiss quartz movement not an automatic movement.
So the problem seems to be that the battery is dying and need to be replaced. Stopping and going is usually a sign of a battery dying in a swiss quartz movement.
So it should be nothing major and just a battery.

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.

Watch has started


We had the same issue. Replaced new batteries etc. Since it was an expensive Invicta watch and less than a year old we assumed it was perfect. However, you need to take it into a upper end service center and have it "serviced" they will oil, align, etc and it will probably solve your issues.

The 24hr hand is meant to keep time in another


I too was confused at first at setting the second hand after reading the directions. I read your post in searching for a solution, then I figured it out. Check the watch face, the second hand is operating using military time. (24 hr. time) You will see 24 hour time embedded on the face.
For example: if you wanted to set both hands to be at the same time to test this. At say 10 p.m. set the second time hand to 22 for 2200 hrs. (10 p.m.) Let's say you woke up at 7 a.m. The second hand would be at 0700 (Embedded on watch face) then at noon it would say 1200 on the watch face... I now use the normal hands for local time and set the 24 hour hand for my home time.
I hope this helps.

Athletic wrist watch stuck in 24 hour mode


Maddening, isn't it? Fortunately the solution is here:

http://www.ehow.com/how_5593310_set-athletic-works-watch.html

1 There should be four buttons: mode, reset, start and light. Find the mode button and press it three times until it is in the set time mode.

2 Find the reset button, which usually is located on the bottom right side of the watch face, and hold it until the time starts blinking.

3 Press the start button to change minutes.

4 Press the reset button again to switch to hours.You will know it worked when the hour starts blinking instead of the minutes.

5 Press the start button to change the hour. The watch can handle two modes: standard and military. As you press start, the hour will change from AM to PM, noted by an "A" or a "P" in the top right. When you get through 24 hours, the watch will change to military time and an "H" will be displayed instead of "A" or "P." Keep pressing start to go through another 24-hour cycle and it will revert back to standard time.

Cannot change from 24 hour to 12 hour also did not change to daylight savings time


To change from 24 hour to 12 hour, you hold down the "Mode" button until it switches from 24 hour to 12 hour or vice versa. To change the time zone, you hold down the "Set" button until the time zone that you set it in flashes (like "LAX" on my watch). Then you press the "Receive/Start/Stop" button to choose the specified time zone you want. To set for daylight savings time ("DST" on the watch), after holding the "Set" button and having the time zone flash, you could press the "Mode" button. It will give you a few options for the daylight savings time (Auto, On, or Off). I chose the "On" option, which immediately changed for daylight savings time. If you manually want to change the time, you could hold down the "Set" button and keep pressing the "Mode" button until the time starts flashing on your watch, then pressing the "Receive/Start/Stop" button until you change it to the time that you want. You could also set the watch to beep or chime after pressing the set button if you wanted to know that piece. You hold down the "Set" button when you are done to get it to stop flashing. These instructions worked for my Timex T5G341 Universal Radio Control Watch. I hope this helps.

I have an Oris BC3 which was never a great time keeper; gaining or losing 5-10 seconds per day. Recently, it started to gain at an alarming rate and I took it to be cleaned and regulated at a watch...


Take your watch back to the watchmaker and ask to regulate the watch again. After a decent repair watch shouldn't loose or gain that much and if properly regulated and tested can keep good time. ORIS is using the same Swiss made ETA movements as Tag Heuer, Ebel, Montblanc, Tissot, Maurice Lacroix etc. These are very good mechanical movements and can be adjusted to allmost perfect timekeeping.

Military Time


Hello I have the same watch and had the same problem. You press the mode button till you get to the point to change the main time, you then press the reset button (bottom button on right side of the watch)to toggle to the hour place, you then cycle thru the time untill the "h" in the top right hand corners disappears and then the watch will be back on regular time.
