Question about Watches

Tag Heuer watch. Stopped working a few weeks ago. I changed battery. Didn't work at first but then did when sufficiently tightened case. Today it stopped working again. Second hand looks 'stuck' it is 'twitching' very slightly. No obstruction, nothing is bent - it did this before as well.

This is a battery problem different brand of batteries they have the same code but they have a very small difference just portion of millimeters in the thickness. This some equipment using these batteries is not a problem however for watches this tiny difference matters since the contacts are not stable that is why fist was working and now not. So either you have to find other brand batteries same size.

    You can try first to move a little bit the battery top metal contacts and you will see that the watch will work without cover. Try put back the cover and this might work if it repeated then you should try other brand of same size battery.

I have a Tag Heuer Grand Carrera. It worked perfectly for a year. But now, it doesnt work. When I shake the watch, it starts and then stops again after few minutes. I was told to wind it. But I dont know...


If your watch is "automatic" then would I be right in thinking you took it off for a few days and it stopped?

If this is the case (since most of the Carrera range are automatic, then the spring will have run down and needs re-winding.

You were correct in thinking that shaking it will re- start it but to keep it going you need to shake it gently from side to side for some time. (One supplier quoted 500 times!) be patient and keep wearing it.

Tag Heuer Carrera CV2A10 date display changes at 3AM??


Unfortunately, there is not much you can do with this, as for fixing it you need very experienced watch repairers help. All I can do is just name all possible reasons why it happened. FIRST reason could be: the day wheel somehow has lifted and not sitting in correct position. This would be the easiest fault for watchmaker to repair, as only dismantling the movement, correcting the day wheel and re-assembling will be necessary, so, no serious repairs needed. SECOND reason can be: the star, which is friction fitted to the day wheel is getting loose. In this case, if watchmaker will not be able to fix the day wheel, you will have to buy new day wheel + all work previously explained. THIRD reason: the day wheel click spring is weak/bent/broke. In this case you have to buy new day wheel click spring + again all the work previously explained. FOURTH and last reason: day wheel positioning screws/borders became loose. In this case only the work explained in FIRST reason will be necessary. If you are so lucky and still have warranty for your watch - send it back to Tag Heuer and they will do repairs without charge, because this fault is covered by warranty. If warranty has expired, you do not need to find any particular Tag Heuer watch repair shop. As all watch movements are manufactured on identical basic principles, any reputable/decent watchmaker will do the job for you. Prepare yourself to pay quite a lot, because Tags are expensive to deal with and takes a lot of time and skill to fix. This is all help I can give. Wish you luck. Rate me, please, and/or write some testimonial if you have spare minute.

I need the manual


I can solve your problem as I had the same one on my Tag Heuer 2000 Classic Multigraph WK111A.BA0331, just recieved last week. A few minutes ago I was finally able to get the company to send me a PDF file with the instructions, and you definitely need them. Email me your address and I will send you this file with my comliments.

Tag heuer f1 2001 has stopped


Don't open it or it may not be waterproof any longer, I'd say almost certainly it's the battery, so you need to take it to a repair center to have the battery replaced

Self winding does not work


Could be its just not a good quality watch, you didn't state the make. if its an invicta, then tbh, its to be expected they can be very hit and miss. You can buy demagnetizer for about $10, £6-7. Things like speakers, computer monitors or strong electrical field can magnetize a watch making them perform very inconsistently.

Water ingress


Peter,
I am not a Tag expert, but do have quite a bit of experience with Rolex and Tudor watches. Without a shadow of a doubt, the top three water egress points are:
  1. Crown
  2. Crystal
  3. Caseback
I would check the recent service receipt to make sure they replaced the crown gasket (or o-ring). If you know for sure you have submerged or wet the watch without the crown being tightened in the past, the problem is likely a mis-aligned or missing gasket (o-ring). Also, have your watchmaker take a look at the crystal and caseback. I had a watch serviced once -- and the watchmaker forgot to tighten the caseback. Thankfully, no water got into the watch.

I hope your results are satisfactory.
Regards,
CharlieJ

Tag heuer carrera automatic wv211a


Your watch is a automatic. All automatics need to wind-up before being worn at first , or if not worn all the time. Automatics will work with-out being wound ,but will not keep time. Wind your watch at least 50 turns (using the crown) or shake about 150 times , and then try it . Automatics need that back-up power to insure it's accuracy.
