Question about Skagen 233XLTTN watch

1 Answer

The watch will not work, it is brand new. I removed the plastic under the wheel and set the time. I pushed the wheel back in, but te second hand does not move. I have another Skagen watch and I don't know if thewheel has gone in as far as it should. Have examined it under a magnifying glass and cannot see any stopage.

If you can return it you probably should . Though I would guess that it is the battery, the batteries are placed in at time of manufacturing and could have sat there for awhile before being sold. I see this a lot of times , its actually quite common. Its inexpensive to replace the battery but if you just bought and can return it I would.

Swatch diaphane second hand stuck


Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

The watch stopped ticking


the battery may need replacing
HOW TO START YOUR WATCH

To start your watch remove the plastic guard from

under the crown, then press the crown in against

the case. The second hand will begin advancing in

one-second intervals.

Some deep-depth water-resistant watches require

the setting crown to be screwed in to secure

water-resistance. If your watch case has a protrusion

with screw threads, the crown must be screwed in

after setting the watch.

To screw in, push the crown firmly against the

threaded protrusion and hold in while turning the

crown clockwise. Continue to screw in the crown

until it is tight. You will need to unscrew the crown

(counter-clockwise) before pulling it out the next time
you want to set your watch

Only second hand operates. Rest of the watch won't move.


The seconds hand is purely a 60 second timer mate! It's the small crono dial at the top which is actually the real seconds hand! To get it going you need to unscrew your top adjusting wheel and push it once.....and it will start and the watch will hold time fine!
To stop the large seconds timer hand undo the bottom adjusting wheel and push it! Boom job done!
It caught me out aswell until a watch maker told me Rolex works the same and what you think is your seconds hand is just a timer the other hands won't follow hope this helps chaps

Brand New Watch second hand won't move. won't keep time.


The watch has a problem in the timing module and the second hand won't move (a cog wheel issue) this is clearly a manufacture defect that can not be remedied and should be returned since it is under warranty.

Hour hand does not move minuet hand does not move but second works


Loose cannon pinion or cannon driving wheel, depending on model of movement inside the watch.

The seconds hand represents the wheels in the back of the watch going around ok, but the power need to transfer through to the front of the watch somehow. This is done by snapping/clicking two wheels together on either side of the main plate. The one on the dial side (cannon pinion) needs to slip to be able to set the time as the minute hand is set on this pinion. From there it is one wheel to the side & then back into the centre for the hour wheel. Over time the mating surfaces wear & become loose, meaning that the two hands driven fron the front of the watch are not being carried anymore. Time to see a repair guy!

Watch is new out of the box. Movement will not start. ???


mcdevito75 here, If your Wittnauer is a Quartz movement, look for a small piece of plastic, just under the crown (winder) remove this piece of plastic carefully and push the crown back down to start your watch, if it's an automatic movement, try to wind with the stem if you feel a resistance then winding will initially start yor watch by winding with 20--30 winds, if you feel no resistance when winding the simply rock your watch back and forth in your hand, you will detect something moveing inside the watch, this is the counter balance winding the watch, rock the watch back and forth for approx. 30 seconds to start an initial wind.
