Mcdevito75 here, Sometimes not useing a watch is just as bad as over use. Try to set the time and move the hands around a bit, the mechanism is most likely a little stiff, you can also try to tap the watch with something that won"t hurt the finish, (Handle of a Steak knife) at the 2--and 4 O"clock position on the watch and at the 9 O"clock position on the watch caseing not the crystal (glass)

I have a Gucci watch which cost £630.00 and the battery lasted 17 months, is that the usual life span for a battery


it can be--their is no definite life span of a battery because everything has a different draw of power a simple watch can last years while more complex such as date/stop watch /backlight etc will draw and kill battery quicker

I have a DKNY NY-1251 but i need the instruction to work it because it not working with new batteries. it was working but keeps on stopping


If it is an analog watch and the second hand moves a few time then stops and sort of twitches then the watch battery (even though new) may be bad. If not the the watch is dead and needs repair.

Gucci 8400m watch not working. I haven't used it for years and it only ticks when i shake it. As soon as i stop shaking it it stops working.


This watch is a swiss quartz model and runs on a small battery located inside the case.

These batteries normally only last approximately 2-3 years and then must be replaced.

You can bring the watch into any decent jewellery store and they will probably be able to replace the battery for you for less than $20 inclusive.

Here are some links to a few short videos which demonstrate the basic process of changing the battery in a watch:

Just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and videos indicated.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Bell Caribiner stopwatch - Does it use one battery or two. It was packaged with one battery in the unit and one separate???


It is most likely just to be used as a spare. If the stop watch is working than I am certain it was packaged to be used as a spare. If you open the watch is there a place for another battery? If so, look to see where it is marked + and - and install the battery/s accordingly.

My CK 2247107 watch is one year old now, Suddenly the watch stopped running, Surely cannot be the battery. Do i need to change any mode. I tried setting different modes on the pushbutton to reset the...


mcdevito75 here, One year old, most likely the factory Battery and at 1 year old the battery is old, who knows how long the battery was in the watch before you bought it 1 year ago?? The battery is the first suspect. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for a new battery first.

There is no display on the watch at all, like the battery is dead but it is less than a year old. Is there some combination of buttons to push?


mcdevito75 here, Sorry, but a watch battery that is less than 1 year old can still be weak or dead, You have to try a new battery first. Battery could have gotton loose, or have dirty contacts. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area. It"s possible you shut the watch off also, Press and hold the MODE button 2-3 seconds see if the display comes back.

Watch Stopped Working


The battery is empty, replace it yourself or take it to a local watch repairer / dealer, he or she will probably charge you around 5 $ for the new battery and replacing it.

New watch not working


I would go and get the battery replaced. Watches will run off the battery even when sitting on the shelf in the stores. Replacement are usually less than $10 at the mall or check a jewelry store.

My watch just stopped working, i take get care of it, never even wet...is it worth trying to fix, its only about 2 years old


It definitely is worth to fix. But I suspect that all you need is just a battery replacement. Don't forget, that before you purchased your watch, it was laying on dealers shelf for no one knows how long. Battery originally is fitted at Tag Heuer's workshop in Switzerland, and nobody was replacing battery when you bought the watch, so, it may have been in the watch for a year or even more before watch was sold to you.
Rate me, plz.
