Geneve Battery powered watch stops when not being worn.

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.

Thank you,

    Watch is an armitron. I also had the battery changed. If it lies on my dresser for more than a day, it stops. Works fine when I reset it and start wearing it.

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

SOURCE: Setting Day/date on Helbros wrist watch

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

SOURCE: i have an old Rolex Geneve Cellini watch gold 12

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.

Check the two connections where the battery makes contact, most likely one of the screws is loose or missing, or may have some corrosion from a battery leak..

The watch seems to stop when I wear it - fine timekeeper if not worn!


The only way that makes any sense is if there is something loose inside the watch possible the battery plate or battery are moving when you are moving. The back will need to be removed and the battery plate checked. You will need to have the watch checked at a jewelry store or watch repair shop. Thank you i hope this helps a little !!

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.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
First of all, unless it is stamped or it is in the manual, I cant tell you what size battery, nor can a watchmaker unless they take measurements of the watch area.
You have a nice watch. My BEST advice is to take to an authorized Geneve watch dealer or to send direct to them (contact them first).

My cartier tank francaise watch stopped working after I didn't wear it for a couple days. Do you know how to get it to work again?


If your watch is automatic, then it is self winding and should start if you gently shake it from side to side a few minutes.

Automatic watches do thrive on being worn every day and if left unused will stop after a few days.

If it is a quartz watch, then take it back to the vendor and ask them to fix it.

How to replace battery in men's geneve 14k gold watch must remove crystal is it tricky?


It is not usual to remove the crystal of a watch the replace the battery. All other watches I have come across need the back to be removed.

I suggest you take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.
