Mcdevito75, here, Most likely it"s simply the design of the watch itself. Best Bet, Check with a small watch repair shop in your area. -------- Generally a battery issue would affect the time keeping of the watch.

My cartie santos galbee stops every so often. It has just had a battery replaced after being left unused for a year or two - any thought


According to their web site, this model has an automatic mechanical movement and therefore has no battery!

Is the number you quoted correct?

If you go to their web site Cartier.com? or Cartier.co.uk and look up your model (it is the last one in the group - go to the furthest right) and them click on details for that model, you will see a description of the watch.


If it is this model, (it will have "automatic" on the face), then it will only run for 2-3 days before stopping. To start it shake it gently from side to side for a few minutes.

Your replacement battery is therefore very puzzling!

The second hand on my cartier santos is ticking only every 5 seconds


This will be what is called the end of life indicator.There will be 2 or so weeks of life left in the battery,it still keeps time but will soon stop.Use a quality watchmaker to change the battery and ask about its water seal.
www.rolexrepairs.co.uk can help if you need more help.

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.

Need to know how to operate Cartier Tank Francaise Chronography W


The top button is for chronograph function and puts the chronograph seconds hand in motion. The bottom button is for resetting chronograph seconds hand to zero.
Do as follows:
1) push the top button once- seconds hand starts moving,
2) push the top button once more- seconds hand stops,
3) push the bottom button once- seconds hand returns to zero.
You can repeat as many times as you like- seconds hand will allways start the countdown from zero.
Depending on what movement your watch has(mechanical or quartz), there can be more variations, but the basics are as described.
If you need more info, supply full info of your watch(make, model, numbers, etc.), please.

Have an Ebel Men's Watch: Classic Wave Two-Tone Stainless Steel Mens Watch 1255F41.0225. Bought it 2.5 years ago. Now the second hand moves only after each 4 sec. The rest of the watch appears to be...


The really nice thing about your watch is that when you need a battery, the watch gives you a 30 day notice by having the second hand do what I call " a triple step" where the watch keeps time, but youe second hand goes 3-4 steps real fast and then stops. Please take your watch to a reputable watch repairman, because your watch has a Cartier movement , and NOBODY but Cartier has the parts for your watch if somebody who dosn.t know what they are doing messes it up. If you have anymore problems feel free to ask me anytime . I LOVE EBELS!!!!
