Question about Geneve Jubilee GW833 Wrist Watch
I have a gold Geneve battery powered wrist watch which stops when I m not wearing it.
The watch keeps perfect time if it is being worn.
I had the battery replaced 2 weeks ago; but, the problem is still there.
SOURCE: Leather wrist strap
I would scrap the strap - the odours are caused by the tanning chemicals getting wet. Retain the fastening and purchase half a meter of nylon ribbon loop it through the case pegs on one side glue them together and pierce for buckle holes. On the buckle side loop it through both case peg and buckle and fold and glue. You have a choice of colour and it cost only fraction of a new leather one- also you will have enough left to make two straps

I have that watch too, and I love it. I never had a manual, but the only way I could set the date was to pull the crown out all the way and advance the time. Each 24 hours (clockwise) will advance the date one day. Turning the time counterclockwise will advance the day. Most day/date watches have two positions when you pull out the stem, first click for day/date, all the way for time. This watch seem to have only one position.

SOURCE: watch goes slow when wearing
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.

Here is the information from the website. The link to the manual is provided below. HOW TO CHARGE AND START THE WATCH Swing the watch from side to side approximately 50 times. * Before swinging the watch, check and remember where the minute hand is so that you can tell if the start-up indicator has worked or not. First, check that the crown is at the normal position. * If the crown is pulled out and the watch is swung, the start-up indicator will not work even if the watch starts operating. * Swing rhythmically at a rate of twice a second. * No additional benefit is obtained by swinging the watch more quickly or with greater vigor. * When the watch is swung, the oscillating weight in the generating system rotates to drive the mechanism. As it rotates, it gives out a sound, which is not a malfunction. 1 2 The minute hand moves quickly and stops as the watch starts operating. (Start-up indicator) Then, it will move at 20-second intervals. 3 After checking that the minute hand has done this, pull out the crown to set the time. 4 After pushing back the crown in to the normal position, swing the watch further approximately 350 times to reserve one day of power, and then, put the watch on your wrist. http://www.seikowatches.com/support/ib/pdf/1m20_e.pdf Good luck, Techjoel

The quickest way to spot a fake Rolex is by the second hand. Is the second hand ticking or sweeping. If it's ticking it's fake. A real Rolex's second hand moves around the dial in one continuous movement.
Check for a small engraved crown on the crystal at 6 o'clock. Most fakes will have something similar. The difference is that the crown on a real one is almost impossible to see by just your eye.
Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.
Most other ways relate to newer Rolex watches.
Hope this helps and hope it's the real deal.
