Question about Tag Heuer Formula 1 WAC1111.BA0850 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

The second hand stops for 3 seconds, then catches up.

This is the continuous movement of the second hand. It stops moving, then after 3 sec. it catches up, stops, catches up. Do you have an idea why it would be doing this? It is a Formula 1, white face.

My seiko used to do the same when the battery was coming to the end of its useful life. Have you changed the battery recently?

I have Swiss legend challenger and it's new. How do you get the second hand moving.


Sorry...

New or not SWISS use the second hand as an early indicator of the battery state.

My memory is that it starts by skipping seconds...
Then the second hand stops...
Then the watch...

ELSE
The movement is bad.

If it is INDEED NEW... Take it back & get
yourself a fresh one.

On my Luminox 3051 BO watch, the second hand (showing seconds evolution) does not match exactly with the marks all around the watch. Regards Robert


Sorry Robert but it is likely you will have to accept and get used to it. The movement's seconds hand is just not calibrated to the exactness the dial is printed in. Notice as your hand moves it sometimes lands on a marker and gradually stops lining up and then as it reaches another part of the dial it will start lining up again. However it never is consistent as to what markers it lines up with. Lots going on behind the scenes (in your movement) that is inherent in battery powered movements.

For about a month, while the watch did keep time, the second hand only moved 4 seconds at a time. In other words, it would no move each second, just in 4 second intervals. Now it is not keeping time,...


Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life). This does not mean end of watch life, but end of battery life. Replace battery and watch will work as it should. Rate me, please.

The second hand will not re-set to zero. It has stopped. The watch works perfectly during the day apart from the second hand not moving, but , the watch stops at 11.15 at night. When I get up in the...


This is a symptom of what is usually several possible issues:

1) The most common is that the battery must be changed. Insist on Energizer batteries only (as they do not leak) and visit your local Certified Master Horologist for assistance in changing the battery and resetting the watch.
2) The movement must be serviced every 3-5 years by a qualified professional. Dust and debris can cause the symptom of stopping and starting the movement. If you have owned it for less time than this, remember that the watch may have been manufactured and in the retail location longer than this period of time before it was purchased.
3) The movement is defective or damaged. If the watch is under warranty, and it was purchased through an authorized dealer, Armani will take care of this issue for you at no charge.

To properly assess this issue, I recommend taking the first step, as a CMH also has the proper tools to test the movement and battery to determine the best next course of action.

The movement on the second hand is jumping every 5 seconds instead of every second, however the time is still correct.


Many high end quartz watches have a feature called the EOL or end of life indicator. This causes the seconds hand to jump 2, 3 or 5 seconds depending on the make of watch when the battery life is low. The watch will continue to keep accurate time until the battery dies completely. So, when you see your seconds hand jumping multiple seconds it is time to get a battery.

Second hand doesn't move for each second


Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.

Press MODE until you reach H-S (e.g. A 11:00 with seconds on top)

Press and hold ADJUST for 3 seconds until H-S blinks

Press and hold SEARCH for every movement; you may wanna press LIGHT so the hands will move freely. Press ADJUST again to when desired time was reached
