Most likely a factory deficiency, I would suggest taking it back to the store and getting it returned.

Just bought a Longine watch L4.309.5.57 automatic, can i use it during sports e.g. Aerobics class and cycling?


I had a similar problem. I had no trouble with ordinary mechanical watches but when lcd electronic watches hit the market I tried a change and bought one which was replaced several times while all my friends had no bother at all.

These days I rarely wear a watch because mostly I no longer care what time it is and my phone has the time on it.

Longines watches are a reasonable quality but an automatic watch is really only suitable for normal everyday activity and such things as aerobics is likely to severely shorten the life of the mechanism. The original "activity" watch was the Swiss incabloc movement but the people who could afford to buy such a watch would not dream of wearing it while performing vigorous physical activity.

I imagine the only watch that would have a chance of standing up to sustained punishment would be a quality digital watch.

A fob or pocket watch would be a sensible alternative. There have been a wide variety of sports fob watches produced, many of them combining timepieces with stopwatch and timer functions.

I hope this helps.

How do I set a Danbury pocket watch with date display


If it is this pocket watch, then the crown (the bit you turn to wind the watch) has 3 positions. Position 1 is when the crown is pushed in all the way. Position 3 is when the crown is pulled out as far as it will go. In between position 1 and position 3 is a place where the crown will stop, this is position 2.
To set the day of the week, pull the crown out to position 3 to set the time. When you set the time, the bottom dial with also turn to set the hour on the 24 hour clock, if you turn the crown enough to cycle through a whole day the day of the week dial will also turn. Keep turning the crown until the time is set on the proper day of the week.
To set the date, pull the crown out to position 2, and turn it clockwise until the hand on the date dial points to the correct date.
Hope this helps!

My watch stops working, the mechanism works on motion or kinetics. However, even with a bit of a shake it works for a bit then loses time and stops altogether


It may require rather more than a bit of a shake! Some makers say that you have to swing it gently form side to side for 200-300 times to fully wind up the watch.

I bought one some years ago that didn't work well and I had it cleaned, after which it worked perfectly for years.

If giving your watch the shaking I described above it still does not work, try having it cleaned.

Automatic watches thrive on being used but should run for 2-3 days before stopping.

Tag Heuer 2000 Automatic not moving


Hi,

Sounds like your watch is in need of service. All watches need to be maintained and regular service is required. A watch is a tiny machine. So if you think about it a car needs regular maintenance to keep it running and so will any machine.

In a watch the oils dry out after about 3-5 years and they stop lubricating. Just like in a car when the oils stop lubricating the engine will stop, a watch will stop.

The reasons for this are 1) no lubrication means high friction on the moving parts. 2) the dried oils become gummy like glue and hold the gear train in place which keep the gears from moving.

The only answer is to have your watch serviced to get rid of the old lubrication, clean and replace any worn parts, then reassemble and lubricate, and finally adjust the timing.

This is something only a watchmaker should do as the parts in your watch are very small and very fragile. Improper handling can permanently damage the parts.

Hope this helps,
