The second hand will not re-set to zero. It has stopped. The watch works perfectly during the day apart from the second hand not moving, but , the watch stops at 11.15 at night. When I get up in the...


This is a symptom of what is usually several possible issues:

1) The most common is that the battery must be changed. Insist on Energizer batteries only (as they do not leak) and visit your local Certified Master Horologist for assistance in changing the battery and resetting the watch.
2) The movement must be serviced every 3-5 years by a qualified professional. Dust and debris can cause the symptom of stopping and starting the movement. If you have owned it for less time than this, remember that the watch may have been manufactured and in the retail location longer than this period of time before it was purchased.
3) The movement is defective or damaged. If the watch is under warranty, and it was purchased through an authorized dealer, Armani will take care of this issue for you at no charge.

To properly assess this issue, I recommend taking the first step, as a CMH also has the proper tools to test the movement and battery to determine the best next course of action.

We are trying to figure out if this rolex we bought was an orginal, its an ad daytona 1992


There are a few things to check..

Most reproductions/fake Daytonas have a second hand that moves.. if your second/sweep hand is moving like a standard second hand.. you have a fake.

The real Daytona's second hand remains at the 12 position as it is part of the stopwatch function and only moves when activated.

A few other things you can check.. if the three mini dials refer to months or days it's a fake.

If anything is engraved on the back of this watch.. it's a fake

Rolex engraves a serial number between the lugs.. some fakes duplicate this..but generally not very well.

Lastly if you have none of these issues.. the final way to be sure is to have the back removed and have the movement verified.

Best of luck

I have an eco drive and recently in trying to set the clock back to regular time, I must have done something wrong. The time is correct but the date, and day are one day forward. How do I correct this?


the crown of the watch has two clicks, pull it gently once and you can set the date and day, pull it gently again a second time and you can set the time. The proper way to set the time and date is to set first the day,date late at the actual date, then move the hands around the clock until the date change at 12 oclock this is evening, then moving the hands around until you reach the actual time. By doing so you will set the day, date and time in syn to 24 hrs change.

example: you want to change it to sat 12th 11am
set the day and date to fri 11th
then move the hands around clockwise until the day and date change at 12 oclock continue moving the hands until you reach 11am

Without seeing the inside works (movement) of your new (to you) watch and its parts, it's impossible to tell exactly what is going on, but no need to worry, as that's what competent watchmakers are for. Probably just needs a new spring, which wear over time due to many factors, including temperature, shock and corrosion. Basically, when you wind up any mechanical watch (whether automatic or hand-wound, regardless of age), you're tightening the spring which in turn is what powers up the watch (powering up the gears as it returns to its original position--i.e., unwinds, accuracy dependent thus on the spring among other factors). Sounds to me like it just needs a routine service, mechanical watches being no different than are automobiles, which require regular service as well. In the case of a watch, this will entail a cleaning, fresh oil and regulation, with old springs often simply swapped out for a new ones at that time by a watchmaker; routine services are a standard procedure which can be performed by any competent independent watchmaker, and don't cost a lot either. Most watch manufacturers recommend such service be carried out every 5 years or so, and while some can go longer (especially if not worn daily, same as a car when it comes to oil changes/service intervals), it's important to remember to service your mechanical time pieces which, if you do, will provide you with decades of reliable time keeping. All the best.

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,

The push button at 2 o'clock is START/STOP/RESTART button for chronograph function. Push button at 4 is for RESET (it resets chronograph hand to zero when pushed). Crown at 3 is for time and date setting. When pulled out to first click, it changes the dates by the means of turning it. When pulled out to the second click, it sets the time by turning it.

Set date on Cartier Tank Francaise Chronoflex


  1. click the top button
  2. click the bottom button to reset the timer
  3. pull the crown out all the way
  4. twist the crown forward hard and fast for a few seconds. The minute hand will start advancing very quickly.
  5. when the desired date and time is reached, push the crown back in place. If you missed the time, pull the crown back out and twist backwards. The minute hand will move slowly in reverse. If you twist hard and fast, the minute hand will start spinning in reverse again.
