I guess you never overhauled your watch.Every mechanism has it's limits - so does the watch movements. Your watch has ETA Swiss made mechanical movement which is very good and reliable, but you have to take care of it from time to time. Mechanical movements are designed to last almost forever if they are looked after and yours isn't an exception. Bring it down to the local watchmaker and ask to overhaul it. It will run as new again and will not let you down. It is recommended to overhaul mechanical watches every 4-6 years. If this will be done, your watch will happily tick-tock on your grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand children's wrist and they will remember you with a few good words and respect.

I have a Tissot Automatic PR 516 from the early 70s. Time is kept well. Date moves forward correctly but it is the wrong date. I am unable to turn back the date. I am able to turn back the day. Any...


The crown wheel (winder) should have 3 positions, (1) the normal winding position (3) fully out; at this position the watch stops and the time can be adjusted.

(2) This position is between the 1 & 2 and is used to adjust the day and date. If you wish to change the date by winding the crown backwards or forwards.

Since watches can very a little, if turning the crown when in position 2 the date does not change, pull the crown to position 3 and turn the hands until you pass the midnight position, when the date will change and then re-set the time. If you wish to advance the time more than one day, when it changes, wind the crown backwards past the midnight position and then wind it forwards again. Repeat until the correct date is showing and then re-set the time. The exact distance you need to turn the crown to change the date will have to be found by experimenting!

Can't find any information corresponding to this


Tissot is not one of the easiest site to interrogate!

If you go into the "collections" choose any watch to get all its details on screen, at the bottom of the information you will see a search box (why isn't it on the first page I hear you ask!).

Put PRS 516 into this and you will be presented with a row of watches (that row of dots can be used to move along the row).

When you find the one that looks like yours click on the picture and the details of the watch will appear and near the bottom will be "user manual" click on this.

Good luck.

I need to know if I need to purchase a watch winder for my TAGs


Use a winder if you must but I recommend just winding and setting when you want to wear them as most winders I have seen are very cheap and unreliable. Expect up to 50 hours from most watches usually not less than 30, this is if the have recent< 5 years, overhaul.

Your Tissot watch is a chronograph. The large second hand is for the stop watch only. There is another second hand by the six that is for the time. To get the large second hand to move hit the top right button, that works the stop watch. If you already knew this and your large second hand is not going around then there is something wrong with the watch either a battery or needs service.
