It could be the battery. You dont know how long the watch has been on the shelf for.Get the battery checked or send it back under warranty so you dont have to pay if it is major.

I have a remington pocket watch from my great great grandfather and I don't know what battery it takes please help.


If its that old, it may not use a battery. Older watches usually use a wind up knob. Yours is on top, try winding it clockwise. You should hear some clicks if its working. good luck!

I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...


If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.

Fossil blue bq9307 Watch stopped, how do I get it running again? I'm told it winds automatically with wrist movement, no battery? Thanks for any help you can give


If it an automatic watch, it usually marked as such on the front or back.

To wind a self winding watch, shake it gently from side to side for a few minutes.

This type of watch thrives on use and if left off for more than 2-3 days it will stop.

I have an automatic raymond weil geneve watch with the yellow chrono, that is less than 2 years old which has stopped working. I wind and wind and nothing. Help please.


this sounds like one of the wheels of the watch movement is broken or else the movement itself needs to be cleaned and oiled up.

I bought it new and then a few weeks later the battery seemed to stop. I did not wear it often. I heard some watches do not use battery and function with the movement of one's arm. Is this the case for...


If the watch is a self winding type, then it generally says "automatic" on the face. These will run for about 2-3 days if they are not worn, as the self winding action only works when the user is moving).

Battery driven watches should run for at least a year before needing a replacement, so if it has stopped already, it could be self winding or manually wound type. Some self winding watches can be manually wound so you could try this to see if it starts.

When I started wearing the watch it would stop at least once a day and I would have to pull out the reset time button, fix the time and push the button back in again to get it started. It happened 4 days...


If it's a quartz watch, replace the battery. If it's a mechanical watch, even a "self-winding" model, wind it manually - unless you're very active it needs a manual winding if you don't wear it all the time. If it's more than a few years old it may need cleaning by a watchmaker.

Breitling Colt Kinetic Watch - not working


I read the instructions for a similar type of watch and while the battery will keep the watch "alive" for some months when not in use, eventually the battery dies.

Since it is a kinetic watch the instructions I read said that you should gently shake the watch about 500 times to recharge the battery!

If you give it a good shake and then wear it for a few days, it should recharge itself, although it may have forgotten the time and may need re-setting.

Good luck!

Juts got the watch, wound it, worked then stoped, wound dead


These watches are self winding (mechanical spring), so need to be worn (or gently oscillated) to wind them up.

The catalogue for this watch says it should run for 72 hours when fully wound.

Depending on when the watch was made, it could be that it needs a clean.

Try wearing it for a few days to see if it keeps going.

My watch no longer functions even after winding.


I have found that some of these "automatic" Fossils also contain a battery. That is how that provide an automatic watch at such a cheap price. I recommend taking it to a jeweler to have them check this. If it needs repair it will likely cost near the watche's replacement value.
