This is the indication that the battery is getting low and should be replaced as soon as possible.

I dropped my aquaracer watch on the ground from 2 feet high. hour and minute hands not moving but the second hands working fine. please help!


You need to go to a watchmaker. Sorry, I am good but not good enough to diagnose the damage without seeing the watch. In any case you can't fix yourself unless you are a watchmaker.

Second hand not sweeping but jumps at 5 secs intervals. Appears to be keeping accurate time.


When the second hand moves in short jumps rather than a smooth sweep or a second-by-second hop, it means that the battery is about to run out. Usually, with a week or two the watch will stop working altogether. You should go and have it changed as soon as possible.

Second hand skips


This is warning: it's time to change the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature and this is how the low battery power is displayed. However, the watch will keep running correctly for about two weeks.

Rate me, please.

My tag heuer aquaracer has a problem: the second hand stops and then speeds up really quickly for about 5 seconds. any idea why/how to fix it?


Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4-5 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.

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.

Resetting GMT hand


I have CL1180 and had the same problem, pulling the winder out to position 2 (fully out) and using the buttons resets the second and 10th second hands and putting the winder in position1 and using the buttons does the same for the minute and hour hands. However finding position1 was tricky, only seems to work on the way out from fully home and not on the way back from pos 2.

Hope that helps.

My Aquaracer second hand problem


This is most likely the "battery change indicated" feature of your watch.  Change the battery, and see if the problem goes away.  If it does not, then it could be a problem with the stepper motor, which will require a watchmaker.  Of course all of this is dependent on the assumption that your watch has a quartz movement.  If it is an automatic, or mechanical you have bigger problems.
