Sorry Robert but it is likely you will have to accept and get used to it. The movement's seconds hand is just not calibrated to the exactness the dial is printed in. Notice as your hand moves it sometimes lands on a marker and gradually stops lining up and then as it reaches another part of the dial it will start lining up again. However it never is consistent as to what markers it lines up with. Lots going on behind the scenes (in your movement) that is inherent in battery powered movements.

    Thanks a lot.

    Robert,
    Some watches, battery watches, are self correcting. As the second hand goes around the dial the watch is capable of slowing slightly if it determines the watch is running fast. Also the watch has a train of gears that have a tolerance or slop if you will that prevents it from being as accurate as you wish. There are watches that move in 1 second increments(difficult to do what your after) and watches that move a dozen times between markers and "appear" to not even ticking as their movement is so slight and fast (1/12th of second each movement) it looks like they are continuous. Ticking is not correct terminology but I use it to describe the movement of the seconds hand. If you have a Rolex take a look at the seconds hand with a loupe. You may be able to tell it actually does tick, just so fast you can't tell. The lack of precision in the movement is the actual cause of your problem. If you need an accurate time recording watch get a chronograph or watch with a stop watch built in. If you want the most accurate chronograph go digital. Michael

Second hand doesnt move second by second it now jumps every 4 seconds


This sounds like a typical indication that the battery is running low and should be replaced soon.

Showing 6ae on my Tissot T touch. Also cannot synch properly


Press the center button marked "T". The watch should beep once;- Touch the center of the touch-sensitive face until 24H Cm appears in the digital LCD display;
- Press and hold the center button marked "T" for approx. 5 seconds. The watch will beep once and then again a second time, after 5 seconds have passed. The digital LCD display should now read SYNCHRO;
- Press the upper button marked "+" to move the minute hand until it is positioned exactly at 12:00;
- Press the lower button marked "-" to move the hour hand until it is also positioned exactly at 12:00;
- When both hands are aligned together and pointing directly at 12:00, press the center button marked "T" to save your settings.
- Your watch is now synchronized, so no expensive repair work is required!

Watch second had is not consistant on how the second hand moves - it still keeps good time is that a low battery issue


If you second hand is ticking in stutter steps, in other words it hesitates 2-3 seconds then quickly steps forward, and your watch is still keeping correct time that is an EOL (end of life) feature...your cell has become very low and it's the watchs way of telling you to replace the battery. Good luck :)

My second hand moves out of sync as well


Sometimes ticking like how you described is a sign of low cell, bad circuit board or dirty gears...or any combination of these..also in this style Luminox sometimes the second hand is a bit long and will catch or rub on the traser ring causing it to slow down, stutter or stop all together...you should take it to a reputable jeweler and have them diagnose it...good luck :)

Second hand sweeping five second increments


Yes, it is sign for time to replace the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) device. This device forces the integrated circuit board to move seconds hand in 2 - 5 seconds increments when the battery power level is less than necessary for smooth running of the watch movement. At the same time the timekeeping of the watch is not affected and it will still keep good time for about 2 weeks.

Luminox 8152 chrono


If you have your instruction manual it should tell you how to reset the chrono. i have the Luminox 8352 and it says to pull the crown out to the 3rd position. then press and hold both the start/stop and lap/reset buttons for a couple of seconds. you'll see the second hand rotate, then you can single click the start/stop button to manually move the second hand 1 second, or you can hold it and it will continue move for a longer period until time desired. if you need to adjust the other chrono hands, click the lap/reset button and then you can click the start/stop button again. repeat for the minute/hour chrono hand. when you're finished push the crown back in. it might work even though it's a different model, worth a shot? hope that helps. these are really great watches.
