Hi
1. You need to first set the time correctly,then wind it and see if it keeps time or not.

2. Most winding wrist watches needs winding every morning in order to keep it working perfectly,maybe you do not wind it everday that is why it does not keep time.

3.If the result is still the same then you might need to replace the winner.
GOODLUCK

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.

It stops working it will not stay on the correct time


This watch is a self winder and thrives on being used. When fully wound, they should run for 2-3 days and if they run right down then they need to be wound up and used to maintain operation.

I am not sure if this watch can be manually wound but try turning the crown in a clockwise direction. If this is not possible, to wind it up, wave it from side to side for a few minutes (200-300 times) and his should wind it sufficiently to run for a day or so.

Wearing the watch daily is sufficient to keep it going.

I don't know how to wind the watch....can you help?


WIND AT THE SAME TIME EVERY DAY. This is extremely important. In order to ensure that your watch keeps good time it must be wound at the same time every day. Most people like to do this at night before bed.
WIND ALL THE WAY. The watch must be wound all the way, or it will slowly lose the proper time and require constant resetting. Also, if not wound all the way, the watch may stop keeping time earlier than expected.
WIND IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. Most European watches wind clockwise when the face of the watch is pointing towards you. Determine which way your watch winds, and stick to that direction. To figure this out, try to turn it both ways. The wrong way will either be extremely loose, or extremely tight.
Tips & Warnings
Keeping your watch clean and free of dust and dirt will also add to its longevity.
Contact the watch's manufacturer for any special and/or specific care methods.
Don't under or over wind you watch. When you start to feel resistance, STOP.

Bulova Millenia 100 m,stops running,move it to wind,starts up


When you say "wave wind" do you mean you're waving it around to wind it with the self-winding mechanism? If so, that will only keep it running briefly as you're experiencing. Manually wind the crown about 40 turns clockwise to "fill the tank" and wearing it daily will keep it topped off. Anytime you don't wear it for a day, manually wind it again. As for the cleaning, the inside of the watch doesn't get real dirty but over time the lubricants wear out and thicken which makes the watch run slowly or not as long as it has to work harder to move the gears through the thickened lubricant. A watchmaker can disassemble and clean the old lube out with solvents and then reassemble the watch with fresh lubricants.

Leave the settings as for ordinary automatic movement. Co-axial movement has nothing to do with winding process - it was developed for more precise time keeping and friction reducing only, so, you can wind the watch in winder as usual.

My wifes recently repaired Rolex loses about an


Is it an automatic self wind or wind up? An automatic watch has a weight that winds the main spring and if you wind it by the crown it will not stop. If its one that you wind by hand then the watch should be wound daily at the same time...like right before bed or when she wakes up. Wind gently until it stops. That costly repair should come with a warranty so if she consistently winds daily and still loses time you need to send it back!

If the watch is an automatic then she can gently hold the watch in her hand and rock it back and forth a good 20 times or so and that will give it a good winding! This is a common issue we see at our watch repair business. Some people do not move enough during the day to keep an automatic movement wound. If thats the case then there is nothing ong with the repair, just make sure it gets a good daily wind! :-)

Not a problem but a question...might be a stupid one too. I just bought a new Bulova self winding BVA100 series watch. The instructions say to wind 6 times before using. I can understand why but the...


Your guess is right- watch is winding clockwise only. If you wind it anti-clockwise, the clutch weel gets disengaged and watch do not wind, so, you can do that as long as you like- nothing will happen and no harm to watch will be done.
6 times mean the movement of your thumb and forefinger with watch crown between them for 6 consecutive times. 2 times is as good as well.
And there will be no any clicks or sounds as the mainspring of watch is designed not to brake, but ease itself if overwound, so, no need for any alarming sounds.

The user guide is wrong


I have a Theorema Parago Automatic through not wearing it regularly it sometimes stops. Winding it wouldn't solve the problem and I couldn't find a solution either on the Theorema site or online so through a series of self help efforts the following is the solution for this watch 1 Set the watch to the correct time date day etc. 2 Wind the watch using the side winder for about 40 revolutions in clockwise rotation 3 Hold the watch in your right and strike it firmly into the stiff palm of your left hand. This gives the winding mechanism a shark shock and kicks it back into life.The watch then works away without a problem.

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.
