    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.

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.

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...

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.

Watch stopped after not being used for several days

The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

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

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