Does it have a small plastic piece that should be discarded behing the crown? Remove it and push the crown in. Should start if it is a battery powered watch. If it is a windup or automatic you need to wind it first. Move the crown back and forth between between your fingers and give at least a dozen winds. If it is Seiko automatic you can't wind it. You must wave it sideways several times to wind, maybe a couple of minutes. If it is a Kinetic, do the same.

Put new battery in pulsa chronograph 100m watch how do I get it working Plz help


You might need a jump start the watch, or cleaning. I usually try using a air dust blower ball to get all the particles that is invisible to the eye, you can do this on the movement and around the battery area. Aftwards try inserting the battery again then pull out the stem and move it clockwise at least 10 times passing the 12'o clock marker. If the watch is not brough back to life you can try one last thing before buying a new movement or taking it to the watch repair shop. If you take it to watch repair shop they might charge you a few bucks to jump start the movement. I hope this helps. Marcelo

Casio not working


You need to Shortcut the battery with AC contact. AC can be found on the sides of watch movement(very tiny). You have to use pointed tweezers: one end on battery+, another on AC contact for three secs to get the watch started

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.

New watch - how to start it - battery?


mcdevito75 here, Brand new watch. If it has a stem, (winder) look for a small piece of plastic between the stem and case, remove this piece of plastic and push down the stem to start your watch. If your watch is all buttons, look for a small plastic tab on the back cover, remove this plastic tab and your watch will start.

I bought a new watch today and i cant get it to run


Watches fall into two basic categories - quartz and mechanical. If you bought a quartz watch that is battery powered you need to set the watch and push the crown in all the way to start the watch. Sometimes you need to remove a small plastic piece from the stem to push it in all the way. If you bought a mechanical watch, even if it is an automatic self-winding model, you will need to manually wind it to get it started. If you are still having problems take it back tot he dealer for a demonstration or to have the battery replaced if required. An instruction sheet and warranty card is packaged with almost all new watches. Sorry I can't be more specific but if you care to share the make and model number I may be able to help you further.

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.

First time setting


Do they have new batteries? Did you take the little plastic retainer off the crown? That is about it.
