I have a FOSSIL mens wristwatch model # AM3423. I recently had a watch repair person replace the battery. Battery type and charge confirmed. I received the watch used as a gift from a relative who was...


Quartz watches stop working most often for one of three reasons: (1) dead battery; (2) dirt in the gears blocking the train; and (3) a bad crystal. This is the order in which I typically troubleshoot watches.

If the watch isn't working after you change the battery, first check to see that the stem is fully pushed in. A watch movement can shift just enough inside the case that a stem sometimes looks pushed in, but isn't quite in far enough to re-engage the movement. Pull out and push in the stem a few times to see if that changes anything.

Next, assuming that the battery is indeed fine, look closely at the second hand. Is it moving at all, even a tiny bit? Hold the watch up to your ear. Is there any kind of "chunk" sound about once every second? If you can answer "yes" to either of these questions, a speck of dirt has gotten into the movement and is preventing the gears from moving freely. It doesn't take more than a a big spec of dust to cause this. Sometimes, advancing the time will move the gears enough to cause the dirt to fall out. Some watch repair places also have a special machine that spins the hands rapidly to blow out or compact any dirt in the train. It's usually not economically rational to have the movement professionally cleaned beyond this point.

Finally, if you don't hear anything coming from your watch, the battery is good, and the setting stem is pushed firmly and completely into the watch movement, you may have a bad quartz timing crystal. It does happen, and when it does, the only repair is to replace the entire watch movement. Sometimes, that's affordable; sometimes, it just doesn't make sense.

Good luck!

Second hand and battery replacement on fossil watch


Fossil watches have an 11 year warranty. Any jeweler can replace the battery. If that doesn't solve the problem and you registered the watch or still have the receipt call 1-800-TICTOC1 for repair.

Fossil AM-3539 The watch has 2 batterys. one operates the changing face the other the watch movement. I replaced both batteries and now the face doesn't change. How do I re-set it?


Please note that many Fossil kaleido watches, especially the sports variety actually have THREE batteries. Two run the animation and one runs the time. The time one lasts much longer, usually a few years, but is smaller and buried a little deeper so you could overlook it if not paying attention. The two kaleido batteries are very visible and usually placed side to side. Pay attention though as for some of the watches those two batteries are set in the same way ( both positive sides up) while others, especially the sports variety have one battery positive side up and the other negative side up. It is important to replace them the same way or the watch will not work

Swatch Irony Battery replacement will not work


mcdevito75 here, I am thinking your watch ran fine before the battery change. It sounds like the new battery is not makeing good enough contact, you can try, removeing the battery and cleaning the contacts in the watch carefully with a Q tip, dip the Q tip in anything containing alcohol cologne, rubbing alcohol, perfume wet the Q tip good, then sqeeze most out of the Q tip as not too saturate the battery contacts, also clean the battery itself, the oil on your fingers could give it a poor contact on the watch. The stop watch section doesn"t take as much battery power as the second hand. You may also be able to jump start your watch also, You"ll need a needle and a magnifier glass, With the back off your watch, right in the middle of the movement, just below where the stem (winder) goes, you"ll just see part of a little gear, this is the hour hand gear, see if you can gently move that gear just a fraction, place the needle between the teeth of the gear and try to move it as gentle as possible then se if the gear will move on it"s own., be very carefull with the movement. Swatch watches are collectables. If you don"t feel comfortable doing the above, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help.

Watch going in reverse


There is no difference in watch batteries as they are produced by the certain standards. That means you have replaced the right battery.
The simplest solution would be re-replacing the battery. Just take the battery out and leave the watch without battery for 5 minutes, then put the battery back. Make sure the battery is fitted the right way (the + side usually facing up).
If this doesn;t help - let me know.

Rate, please.
