Question about Watches

1 Answer

I have a TAG Aquaracer Automatic. Should it not compensate automatically for months with only 30 days, such as September, November, April and June? At the end of September, the date changed from 30, to 31....instead of changing to 1, for the first of October.

Your watch is a mechanical type for which there is no way of making it skip days. I have the same operation on my watch which although it has some electronic circuitry, variable month lengths is not one of the things it can compensate for.

Electronic watches can do this because they have flexible software which can be programmed to "remember" the length of the month.

Hi, I've got a automatic tag aquaracer watch that loses about 4 mins every month (about 4 yrs old). Common problem? Can this be fixed ? Or is it a lemon of a watch? Any advice welcome. Cheers.


If it's automatic and 4 years old, it's probably time for a watch overhaul. Auotmatic watches need overhauled about once every 4-5 years. It's normal for it to lose time, but 4 minutes per month may be a little extreme. So, get the watch overhauled. I would recommend Tag Heuer to overhaul it.

I have an aquaracer automatic and it gains up to 6 - 10 minutes in a day. I have had it fixed before and it was fine for 12 months and now it has started again. Is this normal?


All of the watches I have owned have run for many years without attention and when you buy one as expensive as yours, I would expect similar reliability.

I suggest that you speak to the maker (or contact them via their web site "Tag Heuer.com") and discuss your problem with them.

Battery Charge Life 10 years ago, not being able to afford a real TAG, I purchased a 'replica' Aquaracer Automatic in Bali. I am happy to say that I am now the proud owner of a real Aquaracer Automatic....


If you go to http://ww2.tagheuer.com/_documents/manuals/EI2246_en.pdf
you should arrive at the user manual for a Tag automatic watch which is similar to yours (an Aquaracer).

You will see that they claim 38 hour running when fully wound.

In view of the very small forces involved and the variations that occur in the manufacturing of the mechanism, I don't think that you should be surprised if there is a variation in running time.

If your genuine watch runs for a significantly less time thean they claim, you may have a reason to complain.

How do i adjust the date on my classic watch?? pull the pin and rotate cw or ccw no changes.i have an indigo classic watch. does date need to be adjusted every 30 day months? thanks


You have to adjust the date every February (28 or 29 days), April, June, September and November (each 30 days). Self adjusting calendars are called Perpetual Calendars and this feature is quite expensive, especially in mechanical watches. Your watch has calendar ring with 31 days printed on and the simple calendar mechanism which is changing dates from 1 to 31 inclusive,day after day, so, when the 30-day month is ending and there is no 31st date to follow, your calendar is showing 31st anyway,instead of 1st of the next month. This is when you have to adjust date. Now about the date adjusting. If you pull out crown gently, you will notice there are two clicks (positions), not just one. So the first click, when crown is not pulled out fully, is exactly for day/date adjustment. If you pull the crown further out, watch is in hand adjustment mode. Try it carefully and you will find out the right position.
Rate me, please.

Tag Heuer - Aquaracer automatic (Day/ Date)


Actually in the realm of things that is close to midnight. But if you want this changed you will have to take it to a watch repair person because the movement will have to be taken out of the watch and the hands pulled and rest to change when the calender flips over. When I set up watches i usually have the day/date flip after 2 am so that most people never see it change ( because they are asleep lol)

I am unable to return to the 0 crown Position - TAG-CAF2112


The aquaracer has a 'screw-down' crown.  This means that the crown needs to be screwed in the reset it back to the 0 position.
