Your watch is draining the charge on the battery. It is possible that you have a bad coil or circuit block that is causing the battery to die. An acceptable battery should last you at least 9 months to a year. You need to send your watch in to the manufacturer to have them fix the motor.

What kind of battery does the texas instruments model 101 watch use?


I am pretty certain that this watch uses two #386 silver oxide button cells. Alkaline cells would work, too, but they'd burn out more quickly--not that batteries last all that long in this watch, anyway. I'm basing this on the slightly newer (~1976-78) plastic-bodied TI LED watch that I have in front of me that I believe contains the same time keeping module as the original model 101.

It is also possible that the earlier watch would have taken #357 batteries, which are the same diameter as #386 cells but slightly taller. Both battery types were popular in LED watches of the time. However, I would suggest starting with #386 cells, as I destroyed the case back of a plastic TI LED watch many years ago by trying to use #357 batteries instead of the slightly smaller 386s. Both batteries put out the same voltage, so the watch will light up with either. However, the case back won't close if the battery is too tall--and if you force it, you can bend, distort, or shatter (in my case) the all-but-unobtainable case back.

Have fun with this watch! Mine still lights up and keeps good time.

My Quartz sports watch works, loses time, had three months, .


Sounds like battery is failing. Time to replace it! :-) Sears stores usually have a watch repair counter...or find a reputable watch repair business. (Even if the watch is new...its still possible the battery could be failing because you have no way of knowing when it was originally installed! They typically last about 2-3 years depending on age and condition of watch!)

Good luck!

While there may be a way to modify the clock to take a larger battery, I am sure that the manufacturer is dodging his responsibility for poor performance.

Clocks should run for about year or so on a battery. I suggest you send it back and insist on a replacement because the mechanism is obviously faulty.

Don't take any disclaimers from the supplier, it is plainly not "of merchantable quality" and should be replaced free of charge.

I believe you are just outside your warranty. Its time to see a watch maker/technician about repairing the watch. Often times slowing is as easy to fix as lubricating the movement and forcing the gear train through the use of a cyclonic device. This fix takes minutes and is very cost effective. If the slowing is due t circuit board issues or a more sever gear train problem then the movement will need to be overhauled. I suggest comparing this cost to the cost of a replacement movement.

Longines watch problem


Some longines watch has built-in battery gauge. When battery is low, the second hand jumps every four seconds. If you have new battery installed and the problem persists then there is a short circuit somewhere that drinks a lot of battery juice.
