Hi, there is a loos spring sound in my new iwc spitfire watch when I make a large motion with my hand, I am a bit worried that it is damaged. It sounds like a rattle or a loose gear almost.

HOW TO START YOUR AUTOMATIC WATCH


mcdevito75 here,The Automatic feature in your WATCH consists of a counter-weight attached to the MAIN SPRING by a gear that allows a SLOW but steady wind of your watch with the motion of your WRIST, ARM. Once, only in HIGH END watches, today almost all watch manufacturers have this feature in some of their models. Everyone who owns an AUTOMATIC watch knows, you can START your AUTOMATIC watch by WINDING THE STEM and you can continue to wind the stem with no end. This will at least START your AUTOMATIC watch and, this is true to some extent BUT, does this apply to my watch you ask?, Here"s how to tell if your AUTOMATIC watch will START with a few winds of the stem or not. ------- Very Simply, Hold your AUTOMATIC watch to your ear and wind the stem, if you hear a sound as though something is DRAGGING or the stem feels slightly stiff one way you wind the stem and you hear a clicking sound when you wind in the other direction, then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that will start with a few winds of the stem, approx, 20 turns or winds. If on the other hand you hear nothing when you wind the stem and the stem feels very loose when turnning then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that winds only with the motion of your wrist / arm, to start this type of AUTOMATIC watch, simply hold the watch in your hand and rock your watch back and forth, say from the 12 O"clock to the 6 O"clock, and or, Hold your watch securely in your hand a make circular motions with your hand, any movement to get your watches counter-balance to turn and thus wind your watch. Approx. 1 minute of this extra motion will start your AUTOMATIC watch, then simply wear your watch and your wrists / arm motion will keep it wound.

Swatch, irony, men's watch, doesn't work


the second hand, the small one at about 6 o'clock is moving which indicates your watch is working. the other large hand is not the second hand but the chronograph hand or stopwatch hand. You start it in motion by pushing the button a 2 o'clock. You also stop it this way. The button a 4 o'clock is the button than resets it to zero (12 o'clock). You didn't say what wasn't working. Does this help?

Watch running fast about 5 seconds per minute. it had stopped because didn't wear it for a few days. didn't wind it at all. just set time and it started but now running way too fast. any...


mcdevito75 here, Depending on how new your IWC watch is, without running at all can be bad in the way that the oil in the movement can settle and more or less drain off the moveing parts, and without the oil distributed thru out the movement, your watch could run a bit fast. Re--starting your watch as you"ve done will help, re-distribute the oil, in the mean time switch your watches position on your wrist every couple of hours, crystal on top of wrist, then 2--3 hours later crystal turnned under the wrist, it may take a day or two for the condition to correct itself, if I'm right. Hopefully you have a warrantee with IWC on your watch. Hope this helps.

I can't change day of week and date on my IWC Aquatimer. When I depress and turn lower knob, nothing happens.


if its fitted with a screw down crown you need unscrew it anti clock, then pull crown out to first position and turn in either direction it should change one of the functions then pull it out to the second position and turn crown to set the other functionr remember to push crown back and screw back to case side its spring loaded on some model of AQ some models you need to pull crown in and out to change date then spin hands with crown to change day. IWC have a good website.

Large second hand not running, Stop Watch function?


Hey, it sounds like your watch is just fine! A nice watch to inherit.
The small second hand on the sub-dial is your normal second hand.
The large second hand is the second timer for your chronograph feature.
It should only move when you hit the side buttons. One of them (usually the top plunger/ button) will start the Chrono timer and then hitting it again will stop it. The bottom button should reset the hand to the 12 o'clock/ zero marker.
If the large hand is not functioning at all then there may be something wrong with the watch; perhaps the buttons are not making full contact within the watch or the hand may be stuck and need repair.
Hope this answers your questions. Post more questions if need be.
Congrats on your new watch.
