Question about Tag Heuer Automatic Chronograph Series Carrera watch

1 Answer

My problem is all of a sudden I have to wind up my watch every morning after it sits on my bedside table over night. It is meant to last over 24 hours without having to wind it up but this all of a sudden has stopped happening. Anyone know what the problem may be?

Your watch might have to be serviced. If you are manually winding your watch thats not good at all because it puts unnecessary rapid stress on the sensitive auto reverser wheels possibly damaging the tiny internal clicks. The torque pressure resulting from manual winding of automatic watches is not made for, day-in day-out, manual winding, especially if the watch is not in a pristine new or overhauled condition. It is better to buy a watch winder to keep your watch running.

You should get it looked at by a watch maker who is very qualified or send it to Tag Heuer to get serviced they will give you a quote on how much it will cost before repairing watch so you may decide if you want to go through with it or not.

Sometimes its simple things such as needing lubrication or cleaning. An automatic watch should be serviced every 5 years anyways. So best advice is to get it checked by a well trained professional. My watch guy is great and really cheap . I would ask around make sure you are dealing with a master watch maker though.

My Casio wave ceptor EQW-M100D has started to show the wrong time, it started with a couple of minutes slow but this has now esculated to 12 minutes slow. This normally happens when the watch is left off...


Instruction book page E-23. To turn auto receive on or off. In Timekeeping mode press D (Lower right) to display last Signal screen. It should say GET at the bottom and show the last time it updated. (Or ERR) Hold down A until the receiving indicator and current auto receive setting (ON or OFF) start to flash. Press D to toggle auto receive on. A again to end.
If you tried to make it receive manually this will be turned off. If the GET screen said ERR then it did not update and auto receive would still be off. I had to do the manual thing about 20 times before it updated. A upper left C lower left D lower right A upper right (light)

My automatic omega watch stops after 20-24 hours eventhough i am promised it should last for 48hours if worn continuously for 48 hours.


Almost all automatic wristwatches made today have an 18-24 hour "power reserve" when fully wound. A 24 hour reserve is actually very, very good. I can't think of a modern self-winding wristwatch that has a 48-hour power reserve because that would require a super-long or much larger mainspring than would fit in a modern watch movement / case. There may be some hand-crafted or super-premium watches that can do this, but only a very select few.
Manual wind railroad pocket watches, which were some of the finest and most accurate mechanical watch movements ever made, generally had a 40-hour power reserve. That extra capacity was created by using a large mainspring to store the extra energy. These mainsprings could be used because of the much larger size of these watches, compared to modern wristwatches.
If you are concerned about keeping your watch ticking, even when you're not wearing it, you might want to look at a "watch winder"--basically, a small watch case that rotates the watch for you, keeping the automatic winding rotor moving and the watch ticking. In addition, sitting at a computer all day will wind your watch much less than walking and otherwise moving around. Even though you're wearing your watch, if you're not moving, you're not winding it.

Hi, I was playing with Chronometer and now ended up with date messing. whenever i set a date it changes at around 12 in the morning. so how can i fix it?


The watch has a mechanism that changes the date once every 24 hours and it is 12 hours out.

This can be fixed by winding the watch forward 12 hours.

If the watch is not worn for a day, is it normal for it to stop or slow down? Vintage SS mens datejust, oyster perpetual.


mcdevito75 here, Yes it is normal, especially if your Rolex is an automatic watch. The motion of your Wrist / Hand keeps your watch wound thru the Counter balance on the movement, as the counter balance turns it winds the mainspring little by little, thus keeping your watch wound. Once you take off your watch, if long enough the mainspring simply un-winds and slows and will eventually stop your watch completely. You can keep your Rolex wound even when you take it off by means of a watch winder, a small machine that will keep your watch in motion, or by hand, by rocking the watch back and firth in your hand for about 30 seconds, say before you gpo to bed at night, this way there is always some wind to your watch.

Omega constellation self winding watch stops


Omega claim that your watch will run for 40 or more hours, so stopping overnight should not happen. I doubt if you need to be particularly active to wind up the watch, otherwise this would make the problem quite common. My one experience of owning an automatic did not raise this sort of problem.

Discuss your problem with your supplier and describe your use. As you correctly say, having to hand wind i defeats the point of buying an autoamtic. (It could be that you have been sold two duff watches, however unlikely this may seem, it could happen).

Just bought a Fossil FS4446 sports chrono but it looks like the hour on the chrono is stuck just after 19 on the small dial on the right i just want to check that this is indeed the hour dial. and if it...


The small dial on the right is 24 hour counter and it does one full circle in 24 hours. The purpose of this counter is to tell the wearer what part of day or night is exactly (p.m. or a.m.). There are some places on our planet where the night/day lasts for months and it would be difficult to realise it's morning or evening without 24 hour counter. Try to advance watch hands forward/backward for few hours and you will see this counter hand moving. If it does not move, your watch has faulty/broken wheel and needs to be sent back for replacement/repairs.

My carrera keeps stopping at random points during the day. When I take it off at night it does not hold a charge for very long and I usually have to reset it in the morning. Sometimes the weight suddenly...


This maybe as simple as the swing weight not being secured properly or as complicated as main spring attachment or gear drive problems. Go to a watch maker / technician familiar with the TAG and have a quick inspection done. I would also consider having a full service done on the watch to save money and prevent problems.

Bulova Watch Millennia Motion 96B17 - stops - needs battery????


Dude, of course it stops during the night - it's a perpetual motion / kinetic watch. It doesn't have a conventional battery. When you move your arm (while wearing it), the natural motion of your arm will 'automagically' wind the watch. There's nothing wrong with it - these types of watches always have to be re-set in the morning if you don't wear it to bed (or you don't toss and turn in bed).
