You haven't said what kind or what brand of watch you have. If it is a quartz or battery watch, it may need a new battery. Watches often sit on the shelf for long enough periods the battery may be going dead. If it is a windup style, are you winding it all the way up? If it is an automatic winding watch, Have you worn the watch subtantially long enough to get it wound? If it is a kinetic, have you worn it long enough to charge the battery fully? If it is an Eco Drive have you subjected it light long enough to charge the battery? Have you called the store?

Brand new Hamilton automatic watch, but we can't get it started running.


If this is a self winding watch then you will have to rotate the pendulum inside it about 200 times before it will start. The directions should show you the proper way to rotate the watch to move the internal mechanism.

Tag Heuer watch losing time


Make sure the voltage on the new battery is correct. Just because a battery is new does not mean it is good. That is likely the problem.

yes, the problem is the battery of your watch. it is brand new but many of brand new watch sat on their selling showcases for a long time that when the time you were about to purchase it,it has low battery charged. you have to bring it back from where you bought it, and they have to change the battery. i hpoe i helped you.

My Quartz sports watch works, loses time, had three months, .


Sounds like battery is failing. Time to replace it! :-) Sears stores usually have a watch repair counter...or find a reputable watch repair business. (Even if the watch is new...its still possible the battery could be failing because you have no way of knowing when it was originally installed! They typically last about 2-3 years depending on age and condition of watch!)

Good luck!

Analog hands lose time when worn.


This is usually a indication that the minute hand is slightly loose on its pinion. This requires that the hand be tightened, so that it does not slip. Best left to a watchmaker.

New watch is losing 5 to 15 minutes a day


This could be that the battery is slow. Newer swiss watches have a indicator in the movement of the watch that makes the sweep second hand skip every few seconds to indicate that the battery is slow. On regular japan made watches the watch just simply starts slowing down. Your watch could be new but the battery in it could have a long shelf life.

Watch accuracy


it is ok for a new watch to gain or lose more seconds. it takes time for the movement to settle down.
