Many high end quartz watches have a feature called the EOL or end of life indicator. This causes the seconds hand to jump 2, 3 or 5 seconds depending on the make of watch when the battery life is low. The watch will continue to keep accurate time until the battery dies completely. So, when you see your seconds hand jumping multiple seconds it is time to get a battery.

SOURCE: second hand movement

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.

It is a feature of this watch, it is referred to as the end of life (EOL) feature, it is a way of letting you know its time to change the battery before it dies to the point where it cannot keep time anymore

SOURCE: second hand not sweeping but jumps at 5 secs

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 not moving


If the Chronograph is running, the second hand may be paused as on of your dials is recording seconds instead of the larger second hand. You shouldn't be running the chronograph timing all the time.

Tip

How to submit questions about watches


To submit correct question about any watch here on FixYa you have to give as much details of particular watch as possible. There are hundreds of people asking for help, but it makes no sense if the question, for example, is: How can I adjust my Citizen stainless steel watch? Citizen, as any other watch manufacturer produces thousands of watch models and every year few hundreds of new models are added. This makes impossible to recognize any watch by the brand name given only.
So, to make sure that you will receive proper help with your watch, please always submit:
1. Brand name;
2. Model name;
3.Type of display ( Analog or digital or both);
4.Type of movement (Mechanical, quartz, kinetic, solar e.t.c.);
5.Number of the watch (Usually written on watch's case back);
6.All the writings you can find on watch's case back.
If you are not sure what type of movement your watch has, here is a tip how to find it out: Observe watch's seconds hand. If it is moving in jumping action second after second - your watch has a quartz movement which is battery driven. If the seconds hand is moving in sweeping action - most likely your watch has mechanical movement which is driven by spring.
The more information you will submit, the better.

How do I wind my Invicta 1805?


My very brief research shows that the Invicta 1805 watch is driven by a Japanese quartz movement. That would certainly explain why you're having trouble winding it.

The easiest check for quartz vs. mechanical is to observe the second hand. If it pulses only one time per second--i.e., jumps one second at a time--then you're looking at a quartz movement (I'm ignore the rare and expensive mechanical jump movements). If it looks like the hand takes 4 or more little jumps to get from one second to another, you have a mechanical movement.

The scond hand on my tag formula 1 has stopped and wont resest,but the watch still works with the time. What could the likely problem be? Could it be the battery? or could it need servicing?


Sean, This watch has a disposable movement(guts). That means the battery is the only part that can be replaced. The thing is glued together instead of screwed. Take it to a watchmaker that can get the replacement movement from Tag as the ordinary movements out there are different from the genuine Tag movements. Date wheels specifically are different. Anyway, a professional watchmaker, not a jeweler or store clerk please, will be able to tell you if that is the correct course of events to take. Probably looking at 200 to 250 Michael, Watchmaker to the Stars!

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.


You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.

My Wittnauer is jumping every 5 seconds


Your watch is fitted with EOL feature and let you know about insufficient battery power by moving seconds hand by 2-5-second increments. You have about two weeks time to change the battery from the EOL engagement or your watch will start to malfunction or even stop. In this case you will have to reset your watch after battery replacement. EOL = End Of Life (relates to battery only). Jumping seconds hand means it's time to change battery.
Rate me, plz.

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.
