It has jammed in the spline somehow. This is common though... You will need to take your watch to a Tag Heuer Watch repairer to remedy this particular problem. There is NO Home Fix, as it were. With a watch as good as this it deserves the best treatment.

Grand Carrera Chronograph Calibre 17 RS Seconds hand My GRAND CARRERA 17` HANDS RUNS FOR ABOUT 10 MINS BUT STOPS AT 12 in a cycle of 10 minutes but doesn't lose time. What is the solution if there b?


That sounds like it is on a chronograph split timing cycle. Read the manual and reset it.

When you hit the cancel or reset, all the hands will spin a circle and end up at 12.

Instruction manual


Tags have a screw down crown (winder knob) turn the knob counter clock-wise until you feel the crown unscrew (not off) then pull the crown carfully. It will pop once this is for date adjust. Then pull once more and you can now adjust the hands, set accordingly then push crown back in. After you push it back in gently compress the crown and tighten clockwise until it stops. CAUTION!!!!!!! Tags are not waterproof if the crown is not screwed back down. I hope this helps .

This sounds to me as the Oscillating weight is getting loose and touching the movement. There could be a loose screw as well. That's why your watch is stopping (not enough power to fully auto-wind the spring). There is nothing you can do, I'm afraid, but to show watch to the watchmaker for proper inspection. The longer you'll wear it as it is - the more damage will be done.

How do I wind up my tag carrera automatic using the crown??


Wow, how wrong yall are.

There are three positions for the Carrera's push-down crown. The inner position is used for normal wear and winding. To wind the crown manually, simply rotate it clockwise.

Changing the date on the Carrera is done from the middle crown position. Turn the crown clockwise to advance the date, one day at a time. Push the crown back to the inner position when finished.

The outer crown position is used for setting the time. You can turn the crown in this position either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Adjust the time forward or backwards. Setting the time backwards will not damage the watch. When the time is correct, press the crown all the way into the inner position.

I have a Tag Heuer Grand Carrera. It worked perfectly for a year. But now, it doesnt work. When I shake the watch, it starts and then stops again after few minutes. I was told to wind it. But I dont know...


If your watch is "automatic" then would I be right in thinking you took it off for a few days and it stopped?

If this is the case (since most of the Carrera range are automatic, then the spring will have run down and needs re-winding.

You were correct in thinking that shaking it will re- start it but to keep it going you need to shake it gently from side to side for some time. (One supplier quoted 500 times!) be patient and keep wearing it.

Try this.

Pull the winder out fully. Then press the top right chronograph button to move the centre seconds hand on. Then push the winder back in.

on some models you should only pull the winder half way out.

good luck

I just purchased a vintage Seiko automatic DX and I can't figure out how to change the date and day that appears on the watch.


mcdevfito75 here"s how to change the day and date on your vintage Seiko watch, Pull the stem out to the set position and simply turn the stem (winder) every second time around to the 1--2 3 O"oClock position the day will chage, once you get the day push in the stem in all the way, NOW with your fingernail just under the stem (winder) gently lift the stem up to it"s first notch or position, with the stem at this first notch or position, you can turn the stem and the hands won"t move but the date(number) will change, simply go to the correct number / date and your done, push the stem back in a your ready to go.

If you're supposed to swing it, that means it's an automatic or kinetic watch and it charges it's battery using an internal winder that moves as the watch moves. Try wearing it for a while, being mindful of moving your hand, or if that doesn't work try using a watch winder. If none of that works it probably needs a new movement. Take it to your dealer to submit for warranty.

I have a TAG HEUER Grand Carrera and the second has stopped


Are you aware that these are automatic watches and need to be moved to keep the watch going, kinetic energy winds up the movement which allows it to keep going, if it is left off your wrist and in a drawer or sat stationary it will stop. Shake it violently (without dropping it) and it will restart.
