Hi

There are different types of battery which are in the market. those battery you replace on your watch are inferior, less quality and cheap.

So i will advice you meet those selling the battery to you and tell them you want a battery of good quality although it is more expensive but it will solve the problem.

Thanks.

My watch delayed every day


Looks to me it needs service when it can't store enough energy to tun through the night.
Sure it is not a battery powered watch? because then it could be the battery needs to be replaced. The colder battery can't deliver enough power to keep the watch running. Within a little time it even won't work even when warm or moving.

My watch keeps stoping but my battery is new


If your watch keeps time for a while, then stops and starts erratically, you most likely have one of several common problems.
1. You might have a bad battery. Sounds silly, but watch batteries have a limited shelf life, and if you installed a battery that's already been in a blister pack for a few years, the battery itself could be the problem.
2. Your "set stem" is not completely pushed in. Quartz watches are designed to stop ticking when the set stem is pulled out. They'll start up again when you push the stem completely in. There's a little finger or spring-loaded prong to keep the stem in or out. Sometimes, that little prong can break off from natural use. When that happens, the stem will work itself out enough to stop the watch from ticking. Natural movement on your hand will push it back in, and the movement will take off again. Check to see that you feel a firm "click" when you push the stem all the way in. Sometimes, when changing a battery, the movement will shift inside the case just enough that the stem doesn't quite catch in the locked, "full-in" position.
3. Your battery has a bad connection. Make sure that the positive and negative terminals of the battery are in good contact with the appropriate surfaces. I have used a tiny piece of aluminum foil at times to increase pressure on the watch battery so that it makes better contact.
4. Your watch movement has dirt in it that is jamming the gears. Modern quartz watches are amazing devices--a tiny amount of force from the pulse motor operates an intricate gear system that moves all the watch hands and day/date wheels. Even a tiny speck of dust in the wrong place on a gear can gum up the works and cause a watch to start and stop. Usually this will happen at set time intervals or at the same time every day, because that's when a particular gear tooth comes into play.
Closely related to this is an actual bent or broken gear tooth. Same symptoms.
A watchmaker can test the gear train by placing your watch in a special testing machine that spins the gears much faster than usual. If the watch hangs up from time to time, it's suggestive of problems in the gear train. Sadly, fixing the problem by cleaning the watch may cost more than replacing the entire watch.
These are the most common causes for this behavior. Hands that rub up against one another, or a defective quartz crystal are two other potential causes, but this should serve as a fairly good checklist for obvious problems.
Good luck!

I didn't wear my Michele CSX 36 w/ diamond watch for a few days..When I went to put it on the time was wrong. So I tried to correct it and now it has not kept accurate time w/in a 24 hr period. Fo


I am pretty 100 percent sure that Michele CSX 36 diamonds only comes with a swiss quartz movement not an automatic movement.
So the problem seems to be that the battery is dying and need to be replaced. Stopping and going is usually a sign of a battery dying in a swiss quartz movement.
So it should be nothing major and just a battery.

I have a sportura when i dont wear it the time stops but the alarm clock keeps correct time had battey checked it is fine


I have a Seiko arctura and it stops after three days if it is not used. This is done to preseve the life of the battery.

When I pick it up and shake it gently for a few seconds, it returns to the correct time.

I think it is likely that you should do the same.

My prc 200 is not working maybe its the battery?


These watches are "automatic" which means that the are self winding.

They will run for 1 -2 days before stopping. Shake the watchgently from side to side for a few minutes and it should start again.

(These watches need to be constantly used to keep them working).

My husband's watch keeps resetting to 1/1/05 Eastern time. I've reset it a few times and its good for a few days then back to 1/1/05 Eastern. We live in the West and it's 2010 (so he can look at his watch...


Hi,the problem is either from a weak battery or a mechanical fault in the engine of the watch,
i think you should replace the battery,if the problem persists afterwards,then it's time to give him a wrist watch as a birthday gift.

Be cool.

Do Carrera automatic watch need a battery to run? because it stop me alot that why it just run for a few mins and stop forever until i move again


Automatic watches are mechanical (spring driven) and they are wound by the gentle swinging of the arm as you walk.

If yours has stopped, then it needs to re-wound by swinging it side to side (keeping the watch face level).

You will need to do this for some time (as many as 300 times, according to one maker).

When fully would the watch should run for about 3 days if not worn.

These watches thrive on use!

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.

Internal battery seems to have no power


Battery in your watch is called ''CAPACITOR'' and it gets charged by light. The best source, of course, is sunlight and the worst is ordinary lamp.
By placing your watch for a few hours in a sunny window should keep your watch going for about 5 - 7 days.
As this is not happening, you need to replace capacitor. After doing that your watch will keep working and charging as brand new.
Capacitor replacement is not complicated job and any decent watchmaker can do it for you.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Wrong time


Your watch is an automatic watch which means it winds itself as long as you are wearing it. If you don't wear it for several days it will stop working. To solve this situation buy an automatic watch winder to keep your watch in while you are not wearing it and it will keep the correct time.
