Question about Tag Heuer Link WJF2112.BA0570 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Self winding does not work

I have had the watch for approximately 18 months. Within the first few months it kept stopping even though I wear it everyday. I sent it back and they completed maintenance - movement control - regulating spring bars and all gaskets replaced. Within a couple of months it stopped again. I sent it back and this time they informed me it stopped due to magnetic forces and they recalibrated it. After a few weeks it once again it stopped. It works okay when I wind it up but after about a week it stops. A friend also has a self winding Tag and has no problems with it. Really the only time I take it off is to go to bed. I do not work near x-ray machines or in a hospital so the magnteic interuption issue seems bizzare.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

    If ur on a computer all day and drive to and from wk the watch will not wind so as several days go by doing the same routing your watch will stop and start on you there is nothing wrong with your watch it's your life style Your watch will only wind you walk and swing your arm. U need a watch winder. Sometimes on the watch winder for one night it still might not get a full wind because it's winding is completed. So in the morning before u put it on unscrew you crown and when it pops out on its own your in winding mode don't pull on the stem just turn the crown toward the stem about 30 times. Don't worry you can't overwind an automatic watch. Push your crown back in and screw it down finger tight We're it and see how the day goes you should get a couple of days out of it before it completely unwinds. If your automatic is chrono it will run out faster it the chrono is running at the same time

Could be its just not a good quality watch, you didn't state the make. if its an invicta, then tbh, its to be expected they can be very hit and miss. You can buy demagnetizer for about $10, £6-7. Things like speakers, computer monitors or strong electrical field can magnetize a watch making them perform very inconsistently.

Your watch is a automatic. All automatics need to wind-up before being worn at first , or if not worn all the time. Automatics will work with-out being wound ,but will not keep time. Wind your watch at least 50 turns (using the crown) or shake about 150 times , and then try it . Automatics need that back-up power to insure it's accuracy.

SOURCE: Is there a battery in my tag hueer professionial

The model number quoted does not match those I found on the web site (three letters and our numbers), so I couldn't identify your watch.

If you go the the Tag web site "tagheuer.com" and examine the models shown, you should be able to identify your watch and check its details.

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.

I have a 1992 Rolex DAteJust- it runs great for several weeks .. of everyday use, and then it will stop for no apparent reason. After I shake it a few times.. it runs again.. but it seems that it...


Nail on the head. Take it to a good repair/service shop that does Rolex service. Know this, it wont be cheap. But you will get the watch back in great condition and it will run perfect.

IT IS AN ORVIS AUTOMATIC AND IT STARTS AND STOPS AND DOESN'T KEEP CORRECT TIME.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
When you first receive your automatic watch, you must give the watch an initial pre-wind. If you wear it everyday, it will continue to wind itself on your wrist when you move around and walk. If you stop wearing it for more than approximately 2 days, the watch will need to be reset, but will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again. The disadvantage to this is pretty clear. Your watch does not t keep time if you do not wear it constantly. The advantages are that you will never have to replace a battery, the watch keeps great time when it is running, and most of all, this type of movement is exactly what the originals use! If your Automatic is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period the watch needs to be adjusted. All of our automatics have an adjustment screw on the movement just like the originals. Any local jeweler can service these watches.
Best regards! Jewel

My watch is 8 months old and just stopped..the screen still displays the exact time and date that it died..but because it's digital if it was the battery the screen should have gone blank?!!


Best bet is to start by replacing the battery. At 8 months it'll be due for one soon anyway and a new battery may "reboot" it so it runs again. As a battery wears out it doesn't just stop, it may still maintain the display even though it stops keeping time. Also, new "e-ink" displays require no power to maintain the display 0 only to change it.

Watch winding is not holding


Two words: Wind it! When any self-winding (automatic) watch runs down from not wearing it you have to manually wind it to get it going again. Once you've done that the movement of your wrist will cause the self-winding rotor mechanism to keep it running as long as you are reasonably active and wear it everyday. Just wind it about 40 turns and you'll be good to go. Oris is a great watch company and you should enjoy it for many years.

I have 4 seiko watches that no longer work. Most unreliable watch


mcdevito75 here, hello Diane, I'm afraid your jeweler is correct, and so are you. It is adviseable to pull the stem out to save the battery BUT, only if your not going to wear your watch for a long time, not just over night, here"s the problem!! the quartz mechanism and most of the works are plastic, and plastic while fairly flexable when new, gets hard over time, your pulling the stem to stop the watch everyday or even once a week most likely broke the switch in the mechanism that starts the watch, if so your only option is to replace the movement if you can get one. Pull the stem to stop your watch only if your not going to wear your watch for say 2 weeks toa month.

IT IS RUNNING SLOW EVEN THOUGH IT'S BEEN WOUND.


If your watch is less than 2 years old then they may service it for free, and if it is that new I would take it back to point of purchase for assistance. Even though Rolex's are Chronometers they are not known for their ability to keep near perfect time. If you are losing only 6 seconds a day then you are still over 99% accurate and it does not really get much better than that (that means you may loose a couple mninutes a month. A watch winder that you set your watch in while not wearing can keep it spinning/ winding and therefore may increase accuracy.
If your watch is loosing a lot of time (half an hour a day) or if the watch is more than 5 years old, it likely needs some servicing. Oils can harden and thicken within your watch and this will affect the performance. Rolex recommends servicing your watch every 5 years or so to keep it in peak condition. A usual service entails a cleaning, oiling and regulating; this usually costs from $350 to $700 depending on where you go and if nothing else is wrong with your watch.
But again, if you are only loosing a few minutes a day, then your watch is still in good shape and I would not recommend paying the money to get it to work only a small bit better.

Rolex watch stops only when I wear it


Kristy,
Stress won't affect your watch's timekeeping ability, but position will. When you lay the watch down at night, in which position is it? Also, during the day, is your arm in a static position for long periods of time? A Rolex chronometer (like the Datejust) should run approx. 36 hours after being fully wound -- without any movement. If the watch stops dead, then there is a problem with the movement and/or rotor. If it losses time, I'd bet on a static position problem. Let me know the answers to those questions and I'll try to help you get to the bottom of the problem.
