Question about Watches

1 Answer

The watch runs perfectly when it's not on, but the minute I put it on, it resets itself. I think the buttons in the back must be too sensitive and when they come in contact with the skin, the watch resets. What can I do? I bought it at a duty free shop in Madrid and I live in the U.S.

You can take the back off of the watch and there should be a felt on the back of the watch inside. Either the felt has moved and letting the battery short, or the battery is not seated good.

TW Steel unable to reset minute chronograph hand (small upper left dial) I know how to reset second hand crown out push upper button etc but how do I rest minute recording hand


If the reset procedure still fails on time and date set crown positions together with chronograph buttons, and the minute counter doesn't move even when the stopwatch runs, the following can be tried:
The minute counter's motor may be stuck. Swipe a magnet hence and forth in different directions close to the back of the watch until the minute counter moves. The other hands may also move, but they can be reset later. Continue swiping several times to loosen the motor. A sheet should be placed behind the back of the watch to avoid scratches. Once the motor is loose enough, it can be further loosened by using its reset button which will spin it around when depressed.

After I changed a battery on R0614ZM TERNER watch, the display went berzerck and then blank altogether. Any ideas at all?


Some watches have a "reset" button or combination of buttons that must be pushed to clear all the electronic registries on the watch's little computer after you replace the battery. You might try taking off the watch back and seeing if your watch has this requirement. Even then, it's not always a perfect solution. Last week, I replaced the battery in a watch that had been dead for some time. The watch appeared to come alive again when I put the new battery in, but when I pushed the reset pin (on this movement, it was on the watch movement itself, next to the battery), the entire watch went dead. Nothing I did would wake it up. I removed the battery, waited 30 seconds, then re-inserted the battery. Problem solved; the watch powered up, and I was able to set the time and access all functions again.
On some digital watches from the 1980s, after replacing the batteries, you were supposed to push and hold all the external buttons for a few seconds to reset the watch. I don't think manufacturers still make watches that respond to this, but it is easier to try than taking off the back and re-installing the battery.

My Timex Indeglo watch does not have any means of opening the watch so I can replace the battery. It kept perfect time when it ran, but now it does not run at all. Is it supposed to be a disposable watch...


  • If you don't already know what size battery you need, you can find this information on the back plate of your watch. Once you have your replacement battery, you will need to open the back of the watch to gain access to the battery compartment. Depending on the watch, the back plate will either screw off or be attached by a few small screws. If attached with screws, you will need a set of precision screwdrivers such as a jewelry or eyeglass kit.

    Inside the battery compartment, you will see the battery is held down by a clip. Carefully remove the clip and eject the battery. Insert the new battery and replace the clip. If the battery clamp indicates you should do so, quickly press the reset button twice. Then reattach the back of the watch. If the watch display remains off after replacing the battery, press all buttons at the same time to reset the display.

    Suunto watch keeps resetting itself. Changed battery a few weeks ago and now in the last week, it will reset itself. After you set it to the right time it could be fine for hours or minutes before it...


    You wouldnt think a whole lot could go wrong with a Suunto battery change. If they had trouble getting the coin access back off and unscrewed the case then the button contacts might be out of line causing your problem. You might also check to be sure that they put the right battery in and that there are no pry marks as sometimes there are problems getting the battery out. If any excessive pressure was placed on the circuit board and it cracked it will need to be replaced.

    The minute counter on my chrono won't reset to zero.


    Do as follows:
    1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions)
    2) push the crown in half way back (not completely)
    3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done
    4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in
    5) pull the crown out again and set desired time
    6) push the crown back in.
    If all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).

    Rate me, please.

    When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement.
    Do as follows:
    1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions)
    2) push the crown in half way back (not completely)
    3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done
    4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in
    5) pull the crown out again and set desired time
    6) push the crown back in.

    SECTOR CHRONOGRAPH 200 WATCH


    That's easy. You need to calibrate it. In normal time mode, pull the crown out all the way and then use the pushers to step it back to the zero position. When finished, push the crown back in. You can also calibrate the sub-dails in a similar fashion.
