Mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the minute hand is loose on the minute gear shaft. Look for a small watch repair shop in your araea for repair.

It sound as if the hand has been released from its mounting.

Take it to your local watch repairer, who should be able to fix it back on for you.

Sir..my casio watch second hand isnt moving suddendly and the minute hand is moving freely.


Hi Sanen

What model is your Casio watch?

For what you describe it would appear as if there is a problem with the cockwheels assembly on your Casio watch. Most likely as a result of a severe impact. hard enough to dislodge the retaining plates or break of the bottom of the minute hand spindle.
Hope this helps

On my casio edifice 4334 module and the digital works fine but the analog i can see the minutes handle trying to move but not succeeding , seems to me like it is stuck thanks in advance.


Check if the battery is still in good condition. If this doesn't solve the problem, swipe a magnet over the back of the watch in different directions until the minute hand moves. Take care not to scratch the watch with the magnet. It may be necessary to oscillate the magnet several times at the correct position and direction until the minute hand moves freely.

The minute hand spins freely. how do i fix this?


Your hands need to be reset. It is possible that you have dropped your watch or have knocked it on something to make them come loose. You need to take it into a jeweler or a watch repair person to have it fixed because they will need to open the watch up to solve the problem.

Mintues hand problem.


There are two reasons for this. First- you distorted minute hands hole and now it is not sitting tightly on pinion. Second- when you pulled off the minutes hand, you lifted cannon pinion. As the result it is loose and swings freely. I do understand you have no knowledge how the watches are build, so, visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to fix it. Please, do not take it personally - it is just because you can't do that without watchmakers knowledge, so, save your nerves, time and watch. Rate me, plz.

Watch stopped after not being used for several days


The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Press MODE until you reach H-S (e.g. A 11:00 with seconds on top)

Press and hold ADJUST for 3 seconds until H-S blinks

Press and hold SEARCH for every movement; you may wanna press LIGHT so the hands will move freely. Press ADJUST again to when desired time was reached
