Re: Tag Heuer Formula 1 Mens watch
This is not a cheap watch....You should send it to a qualified watchmaker or the manufacturer. This watch has to have a pressure test to insure it's water tight. This may require replacement of some or all of the gaskets in the case.I would never recommend that this is something that you should try to do yourself.You would be amazed at the money I make do to improper replacement of JUST the battery.

"EOL" means "End of Life." The battery needs to be replaced soon. I agree with other post. . . if you had the battery replaced recently, it was bad. I have had my Tag Kirium Formula One for 12 years and have only replaced the battery once.
It is located on the right side of the Tag Heuer logo on the back of the watch. It is not as deeply engraved as the rest of the markings on the back, but rather is very lightly 'tapped' into the metal.
If you have, then you will see that it can be turned off (last page), is this likely to be the case?
If you need a copy, go to their web site "tagheuer.com", select "watches", then "tag heuer formula 1", then "man", followed by "Tag Heuer F1 chronometer" and finally you will see on the right a menu, select "user manual".
This seems to be a generic manual that cover both the chronometer and alarm version of the watch.
If these are not the correct instructions for your watch, opposite the "user manual" menu is a search box, put your watch model in this and there should be a user manual with it.
If not look at a similar watch for a generic manual.
