I have this problem too... it's for my gucci 5500M. i haven't tried replacing the battery, but i remember the second hand getting this problem when i had to change the time. i wonder if a small gear broke inside the watch, but the weird thing is that the time still stays on time.
U kno something take it to the jeweler not any but kay the,ll charge u something between ur budget i get my battery 4 my gucci 8500m 4 $$$$$15 DOLLARS, i went asking to different jewelres to compare prices zales $$$$$70 dollars, sears $$$$30 dollars for a battery just because the watch its a gucci I mean come on is just a battery does the battery says gucci on it the 1 they put on I bet if u went with a cheapy watch the'll probably charge u $$$$(3)$$$$$$ whats the difference between a battery that they put on a gucci unstead of a regular watch, they might think that if you own a gucci u have tons of $$$$$$$$$$ to buy just a battery. I recomend u by xperience go to KAY is way more economic an more professional. mine is 2nd hand too i got it at the paw shop it didn't came with the battery so i had to bought it did't get the paper work forgot to ask for it. Purchase date 2-22-09 got the battery 3-1-09.

Watches, well most quartz anyway, are programmed to alert it's wearer to the fact that the battery in the watch is growing weak and needs to be replaced. There are watches that use a 2 second split and then there are those, like my Bucherer quartz that hops at 5 second intervals. Remember, just because you put a "new in the package" battery in your watch does not guarantee that it is new by way of battery power. Some batteries go completely dead while sitting on shelves waiting to be sold. For those of you that don't know, take it from a man of experience, never... ever... ever... store loose change and opened, new or used, coin or watch batteries in the same junk drawer. They will combine chemically to cook off the battery cells like a .22 rounds and pieces can fly pretty fast. Have a great day!
If it is not a feature built in to the watch to save power when it needs winding, I would say it has a bad gear wheel inside.
I would go here, join, and ask in the Rolex Forum,
These guys are really knowledgeable.
For sure you know EcoDrive watches are powered by light and all advertisements says: you will never have to change the battery. That's right - you will never have to change the battery, because there is no battery as we know. In your watch you have CAPACITOR, and it is the cell (sort of battery), recharging itself from the light consuming plate underneath the dial. Capacitor is not timeless, so, you have to replace it anyway. Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for replacement.
This is warning: it's time to change the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature and this is how the low battery power is displayed. However, the watch will keep running correctly for about two weeks.
Yes it's the battery. Please make sure to take it to someone QUALIFIED This watch requires that all the gaskets be replaced and pressure tested at the time you have the battery replaced
