    Watch stopped, I assumed battery needed replacing. After replaced, it runs for a short period of time, then stops. If you tap it, it will run again for a while

Make sure the dial that is used to set your watch is snug against the frame of the watch. Sometimes when people reset the time on their watches they don't push the dial all the way back in which will cause it to stop. If it is an intermitten problem it may be close but not all the way in. Some watches continue to run when they are being set; whereas, some stop when the dial is pulled to reset them.

My dango watch second hand stops some time

If your Dango watch's second hand stops intermittently, there are a few things that could be causing the issue. Here are some possible reasons and solutions:

1. Low Battery: If the battery in your watch is running low, it could cause the second hand to stop. You may need to replace the battery in your watch. Check your watch's manual or take it to a watch repair shop to have the battery replaced.
2. Dirt or Debris: Dirt or debris can get inside your watch and cause the gears to stop moving properly. If this is the case, you may need to have your watch cleaned and serviced by a professional watch repair person.
3. Loose Second Hand: If the second hand on your watch is loose, it could cause it to stop intermittently. A loose second hand can be caused by a damaged pinion or cannon pinion. You may need to take your watch to a professional watch repair person to have it fixed.
4. Magnetic Interference: Magnetic fields can interfere with the movement of the gears inside a watch, causing it to stop or run erratically. If you have been around strong magnets or electronic devices, it could be causing the issue. Try moving your watch away from these devices to see if that helps.
5. Mechanical Issue: There may be a mechanical issue with your watch's movement that is causing the second hand to stop. This can be caused by a worn out gear or other component. You may need to take your watch to a professional watch repair person to have it fixed.

I didn't wear my Michele CSX 36 w/ diamond watch for a few days..When I went to put it on the time was wrong. So I tried to correct it and now it has not kept accurate time w/in a 24 hr period. Fo

I am pretty 100 percent sure that Michele CSX 36 diamonds only comes with a swiss quartz movement not an automatic movement.
So the problem seems to be that the battery is dying and need to be replaced. Stopping and going is usually a sign of a battery dying in a swiss quartz movement.
So it should be nothing major and just a battery.

Watch stops intermittantly. Where can I send or take it for repair. I live in Boston.

This one has good reviews:

Thanks and good luck!

My watch stops 1-2 minutes after setting it. I pull out the knob and the second hand stops. I set the time and push the knob back in. The watch starts to tick as it is supposed to but it stops shortly...

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your Rolex needs a reular serviceing, Check with the Repair Service Directory here at fixya, bottom of this page click on Reapir Service Directory, then watches, choose a repair service that specializes in Rolex watches.

The second hand stops for 3 seconds, then catches up.

My seiko used to do the same when the battery was coming to the end of its useful life. Have you changed the battery recently?

When the watch sits for a period of time, usually overnight or longer, the second hand stops moving and it stops keeping time. When I reset the time it is fine until I let it sit again. Any ideas on this?

If this watch works while on your arm but not when it sits it is probably caused by the oils in the movement drying out. The warmth from your body heats them and allows them to become semi liquid again which in turn allows the watch to run. When the watch cools the oils become too thick and stop the watch.

A cleaning and service can correct this problem.

Hope this helps.

Guess Watch's stop watch is broken?

it's not broken.

let's call the top stopwatch button "a" and the bottom stopwatch button "b." eg, for normal stop watch function press "a" to start timing, press "a" to stop timing, and press "b" to reset.

to reset: press button "a" and "b" simultaneously and release (an easy way to do this is press and hold down "b" then press "a" and release both). this will send both hands spinning. next press "a" intermittently until the second-hand is back to it's desired reset location. then, likewise, press "b" intermittently until the minute hand is zeroed. now with both hands at the correct reset location, again press and release "a" and "b" simultaneously to save these resets and return the watch to normal function mode.

The second hand of my Tissot watch T870/970 starts and stops.

Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".
