This sort of behaviour indicates that the battery needs replacing.

Yes, weak battery was the cause. New battery fixed the problem.

I just bought a Gucci 8905 YA089303 and the second hand jumps about every 4 seconds. Is this fixable?


You are witnessing what is called the EOL or end of life indicator. Relax, it's your battery not you! Better watches have this feature. You will notice the time remains correct even if the seconds hand jumps 4 seconds. Some watches it is 2, some 3 seconds.

My seiko is keeping good time but the second hand jumps two seconds then hesitates for what seems to be a second then skips two seconds again


There are three solutions for this problem, contingent upon the model:

With both instances, this is a power saving / low charge / low battery feature of the timepiece.

1) Is your Seiko watch a Kinetic / Solar model? If so, your watch contains a capacitor. The capacitor may be bad, OR if you have not been wearing it on as regular a basis, wind the watch (Kinetic) vigorously for 5 minutes, and if the second hand returns to normal function, the capacitor is most likely fine. If is is a Solar model, expose it to sunlight for 4-6 hours or incandescent light for 24 hours and see if this resolves the problem.

2) Else: if this is a standard battery operated watch, take your watch to an authorized Seiko repair center, or Certified Master Horologist. Make sure that the Seiko Repair Center is using Seiko batteries, else make sure they are installing Energizer only - these two batteries will not leak in your movement. Avoid other batteries at all cost, many of them will leak and ruin your movement.

3). If these solutions do not work, and you have not had your watch serviced in the last 3 to 5 years, you need to service the movement. See the aforementioned parties to begin the process.

4) If your watch is water resistant, and/or you plan on wearing it in the water, make sure to have your watch water tested by the appropriate aforementioned professional to ensure it will withstand proper dynamic and static pressure at the appropriate depths.

Hi I've had my Tango for approximately 8 years and never experienced a problem with it, yesterday I noticed that the second hand moves in five second bursts but still maintains the time well. Any...


Usually a delay in the second hand means a low battery. If you have not had a battery changed in awhile, then thats my best guess. RW suggests a routine maintenence about every 3 years. They have an awesome website. You can read more and get instructions if needed at following link:

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

Second hand doesn't move for each second


Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4 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.

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.
