Thank you for contacting FixYa.
When you first receive your automatic watch, you must give the watch an initial pre-wind. If you wear it everyday, it will continue to wind itself on your wrist when you move around and walk. If you stop wearing it for more than approximately 2 days, the watch will need to be reset, but will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again. The disadvantage to this is pretty clear. Your watch does not t keep time if you do not wear it constantly. The advantages are that you will never have to replace a battery, the watch keeps great time when it is running, and most of all, this type of movement is exactly what the originals use! If your Automatic is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period the watch needs to be adjusted. All of our automatics have an adjustment screw on the movement just like the originals. Any local jeweler can service these watches.
Best regards! Jewel

Watch will not wind and will not run or keep time. It appears to have over wound itself.


Not possible. The assumption that a watch is fully wound and then doesn't run is because the watch is over wound is invalid. The correct assumption is the watch has been fully wound and the watch has a problem. Could be anything. Automatic winding watches have a mainspring that slips or acts as a clutch when fully wound to avoid breaking from continuous winding.

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.

Hi my tag heuer monaco has stopped working but when i wind it to the correct time it starts again for a while, what is wrong with it


I'm sure its an automatic - next time it stops do not set time just shake it and see it if starts again - automatics need to be worn most of the day to last during the night

Gevril automatic watch (model AO11R5) can't hold charge


If you have had it for some time then it could be that it needs a clean.

I have seen manufacturers recommendations suggesting every two years for cleaning to maintain accuracy.

How do I adjust my time


hi friend,
i think your rolex watch must be a automatic one. this kind of watch, you don't need to put battery, after in full power, i can last 24-48 hours. if you wear it, it will not stop, but if you don't wear it for long time, it will stop automatic. to adjust the time, you just need to wind the crown counterclockwise, and then pull out the crown, and then you will hear the sound of "click" and then find the right position, and then wind the crown to change the date. please note that the date have to change from small number to big number. after adjust it, you have to screw down the crown to a good water proof capability.

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.
