SOURCE: watch second hand

I had the same problem with my Tag. Same 4 second jump. It's definitely the battery. I'm surprised at only 3 months, but maybe it sat a while in the display case. Mine was over a year and a half.

I have purchased a new Seiko kinetic SUN007 mens watch. After hours of swinging back & forth to charge the watch, the 'second' hand still moves in two-second increments. (After charging via movement,...


I have a Seiko kinetic watch and it has behaved perfectly for over two years and therefore I think that yours is faulty.

I suggest you send it to Seiko to have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

My Jacques Lemans G-190E's second arm move once every 5 seconds, is this normal? Please advice! I just take it out from the gift box. Thanks!


No worries - just replace the battery. As the battery was fitted at the time of watch assembly, it is actually already old. The seconds hand movement by 5sec increments indicates low battery power, so, next time you see that - you will know what to do.

Second hand moving in 4 second increments instead of 1 second clicks. Does this mean it needs service or just a new battery?


Hi,

This means it needs a new battery. But if your watch is about 5 years old it is best to have it serviced. The oils in the movement will be drying out and this causes the gear train to require more power from the battery to make it move. By drawing more power from the battery, the battery will not last as long. This shortening of the battery life continues until the watch is serviced or eventually a new battery will not get the watch to run.

All watches require regular service to stay working properly.

Hope this helps,

Ken

You would have to remove the movement from the case, remove the hand and reinstall it, to where you want it.

Second hand sweeping five second increments


Yes, it is sign for time to replace the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) device. This device forces the integrated circuit board to move seconds hand in 2 - 5 seconds increments when the battery power level is less than necessary for smooth running of the watch movement. At the same time the timekeeping of the watch is not affected and it will still keep good time for about 2 weeks.
