Question about Watches

Open Question

Hello... I just want to ask about eta g10.211. I bought watches, which contains this quartz movement. When I start timer, the hand, which counts seconds does not move accurate. It does not hit the little stripes, which are seconds. For example, when I stop timer, the hand which count second stops between 22th and 23th second, not accurately on 22th or 23th second. Is that ok? Thanks for your soon answer

SOURCE: 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.

Yes it's the battery. Please make sure to take it to someone QUALIFIED This watch requires that all the gaskets be replaced and pressure tested at the time you have the battery replaced

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.

Hello!
Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".

I just bought an Emporio Armani AR2020 wrist watch and when I received it, the hands on the watch wouldn't move. Do I need a battery for the watch? Is it broken?


That specific watch has a quartz movement, and it does not have a sweeping hand that moves to count the seconds. If the hour and minute hands are not moving there is a possibiliy that the battery has died. If after the battery is replaced and the hands still do not move then it's an issue with the quartz movement.

Tip

Watch glossary: N, O, P, Q.


NIVAROX
Trade name (from the producer's name) of a steel alloy, resisting magnetization, used for modern self-compensating balance springs. The quality level of this material is indicated by the numeral following the name in decreasing value from 1 to 5.
OBSERVATORY CHRONOMETER
An observatory-tested precision watch that obtained the relevant rating chronometer certificate.
OSCILLATION
Complete oscillation or rotation movement of the balance, formed by two vibrations.
PALLETS
Device of the escapement transmitting part of the motive force to the balance, in order to maintain the amplitude of oscillations unchanged by freeing a tooth of the escape wheel at one time.
PERPETUAL CALENDAR see calendar, perpetual
PILLAR-PLATE or MAIN PLATE
Supporting element of bridges and other parts of a movement.
PINION
Combines with a wheel and an arbor to form a gear. A pinion has less teeth than a wheel and transmits motive force to a wheel. Pinion teeth (normally 6 to 14) are highly polished to reduce friction to a minimum.
PIVOT
End of an arbor turning on a jewel support. As their shape and size can influence friction, the pivots of the balance-staff are particularly thin and, hence, fragile, so they are protected by a shockproof system.
PLATED
Metal, treated by a galvanizing procedure in order to apply a slight layer of gold or another precious metal (silver, chromium, rhodium or palladium) on a brass or steel base.
PLEXIGLAS
A synthetic resin used for watch crystal.
POINçON DE GENEVE
Distinction assigned by the Canton of Geneva to movements produced by watchmaker firms of the Region and complying with all the standards of high horology with respect to craftsmanship, small-scale production, working quality, accurate assembly and setting. The Geneva Seal is engraved on at least one bridge and shows the Canton's symbol, i.e. a two-field shield with an eagle and a key respectively in each field.
POLISHED FINISH
Brilliant metal surface obtained on the watch case with fine abrasive. Compare to brushed finish.
POWER RESERVE
Duration (in hours) of the residual functioning autonomy of a movement after it has reached the winding peak. The duration value is displayed by an instantaneous indicator: analog (hand on a sector) or digital (through a window). The related mechanism is made up of a series of gears linking the winding barrel and hand. Recently, specific modules were introduced which may be combined with the most popular movements.
PRECISION
Accuracy rate of a watch, a term difficult to define exactly. Usually, a precision watch is a chronometer whose accuracy-standard is certified by an official watch-rating bureau.
PULSIMETER CHRONOGRAPH
The pulsimeter scale shows, at a glance, the number of pulse beats per minute. The observer releases the chronograph hand when starting to count the beats and stops at the 30th, the 20th or the 15th beat according to the basis of calibration indicated on the dial.
PUSHER, PUSH-PIECE or PUSH-BUTTON
Mechanical element mounted on a case for the control of specific functions. Generally, pushers are used in chronographs, but also with other functions.
PVD
Abbreviation of Physical Vapor Deposition, a plating process consisting of the physical transfer of substance by bombardment of electrons.
QUARTZ
The quartz movement uses the famously stable vibration frequency of a quartz crystal subjected to electronic tension (usually 32,868 Hz) as its norm. The fact that a quartz-controlled second hand jumps to the tact of each second is a concession to the use of outside energy. This technical revolution found its way to the world's wrists in the late 1960s. This was a principally Swiss invention - the first working quartz wristwatches were manufactured by Girard-Perregaux and Piaget as the result of an early joint venture within the Swiss watch industry, but the Japanese (primarily Seiko) came to dominate the market with new technology.
QUARTZ MOVEMENT
A movement powered by a quartz crystal. Quartz crystals are very accurate. They can be mass produced which makes them less expensive than most mechanical movements which require a higher degree craftsmanship.

Should i pull the crown to save battery if i store my quartz watch for a few months


I don't think storing a watch with the crown out accomplishes much. That I am aware of, pulling the crown out does not break the electrical connection between the battery and the watch. At least in looking at quartz movements, I don't see any electrical apparatus that insulates the crown in any way so that it could act as a switch. I think that in quartz watches that hack, pulling the crown out mechanically disengages or interferes with the drive train, but it doesn't stop the oscillator or stepper motor from running.
With quartz movements, at least those I have seen the internals of, (most ETA and ISA designs, some Rondas, a few Seikos), pulling the crown to the setting position does one of two things:
1) On better, jeweled movements - it breaks contact between the coil and battery, thus stopping the motor. The oscilator continues to be powered, but most of the current consumption is from the motor. These pulling the crown out does save battery life. Or,

2) On cheaper non-jeweled movements - it blocks the rotation of the second hand gear, and stalls the motor. These are observable by a "twitchy" second hand when the stem is out. This method actually kills the battery faster, as a stalled electric motor draws more current.

HOW TO SET NEW PIRELLI YACHT TIMER WATCH? MANUAL NOT SENT WITH WATCH. IS THERE A FREE MANUL POSTED ON INTERNET? MODEL 41008, S# 7951903215 Many thanks for the help.


This information comes from the movement manufacture and helps figure out what does what. I also have a yacht timer with no instructions.....hope this helps

A combination of design and technology, ISA 8270 is a precise racing timer developed especially for yachting races, displaying count-down during regatta departures with audible signals, followed by cumulated time during races. The dimensions (25.60mm, H 4.60mm) offer a large variety of opportunities for watch designs. It is suitable for the manufacture of models for gents and ladies watches.

This new calibre is an analogue quartz timer fitted with an alarm function. It displays the hours, minutes, seconds (small jumping seconds at 2 o’clock counter), and date shown by a date window at 6 o’clock. In addition, it allows count-down and race timing. The small hand at 10 o’clock counter and the central hand facilitate the display of count-down and time measurement clearly visible.

Count-down, Racing Timer and Alarm features

ISA 8270 yachting movement not only provides the traditional count-down at 10, 6 and 5 minutes, but also the versatility of setting count-downs at any minute from 10 to 1 minute.

One special feature is that it allows the possibility of recalibrating the count-down at every minute up to the last minute before departure. This latter function allows the navigators to readjust the watch at any time during the count-down to the closest full minute in order to be in line with the official procedure announced by the racing committee (RC) boat so as to get off the best possible start. Audible signals are emitted every minute to alert the progress of count-down. To give higher accuracy, every-second audible signals are emitted during the last 10 seconds count-down to ensure knife-sharp precision. Immediately after the departure, the count-down automatically shifts to the racing timer mode to measure the time of the race event for a maximum of 96 hours. Setting, start/stop and recalibration of count-down and race timing are facilitated by the pushers (at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock), which are easier to operate.

Thanks to an oversized counter hand and a highly visible flange on the dial that our customers may design, the navigators can best monitor the time remaining before departure and during the entire procedure.

The alarm time is displayed in an analogue mode. Alarm start/stop is enabled by a pusher at 8 o’clock and is displayed by a central alarm hand (12 hours).

Superb performance

Born of precision, accuracy and innovation, ISA 8270 offers excellent quality and performance. Intended for yachting races, this movement gives answer to sports watches requiring indispensable qualities: strength, endurance, agility and outstanding speed.
When the trend of sportive and fashionable quartz watches prevails, this new Swiss Made ISA 8270 priced competitively with outstanding performance answers the expectations of an increasing market demand and customers, who wish to add a number of value-added exceptional designs to their next collections with strong sporting character.

How does the swiss eta g10.211 quartz chronograph work


Hello,
I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking how this particular quartz movement operates?

All Quartz movements are pretty much the same operational wise. They can vary greatly in materials used for construction and number of jewels.

At it's basic a quartz watch uses a piece of quartz crystal called a transistor oscillator to vibrate a tuning fork. This vibration is a is brought down by micro processors to a meaningful number then converted into mechanical energy trough the movement and hands.

In the case of a chronograph it means more internal gears and jewels.
Although this is a good movement it is the low side of middle of the road.

The G10.211 is an analog display of hours and measured time. These include hours, minutes and a small jumping second as 6 o'clock. Mechanical date and counters for 1/10 second, 60 seconds and 30 minutes with "ADD" and 'SPLIT" functions. Operated by 2 push buttons.
It has 6 jewels.

If you want to know something more specific please just ask.
Hope this helps.

Differentiating omega model 2561.80 and a model 2531.80


Kris,
The only way to find out what model of Omega you actually own is to open it.  This should have been done by whoever you already brought it to.  Omega only prints their model #'s on the movement inside the watch.  If you open the watch, look on the movement, you'll know what model you own.

Need a new stem. Can I purchase on and get it put on myself


You have to open your watch and find movement number. Use an eyeglass as the numbers are very tiny. Number is pressed onto one of movement plates and shoud be letters ETA+number.
When this is done, visit your nearest watchmaker shop and ask for stem for movement ETA+number. Do not tell this is for Ebel or you will be charged accordingly to brand name.
There should be no problems for supplying ETA stem.

Fake or not


Generally you have to open the watch to see the movement but a lot of fakes are plain workmanship flaws.
A real Cartier will not be made from base metal. It will be made from stainless steel or precious metal.
A real Cartier will most likely be built with screws in the band instead of cotter pins.
When you pull the crown to set there will be no play in the set lever. In other words when you spin it, it will begin to turn the hand immediately and there will be a slight resistance. It will not feel loose.
As stated, the best way to tell is to look at the movement. Cartier uses a high grade Swiss movement most likely marked ETA.
