I have a pulsar solar watch that I purchased in florida three years ago and it has started to stop every few days. The only way I can get it to work is by putting it under a light overnight, then it runs for a few days.
I have the same watch and the same problem. The solar battery is depleted. You need to recharge the watch like you did when it was new. The instructions can be found through the following link: www.pulsarwatches.com.au/manuals_pdf/108_1.pdf

They have a rechargeable battery in them,you'll have to go to jeweler or a watch repair store.the battery is not cheap!!! I had my wifes fixed a few years ago the battery cost $68.00,but she likes the watch so it was worth it.
If your watch is solar powered the second hand performs this characteristic when it's in need of a charge. Try placing your time piece under a bright light for short time or in direct sunlight and see if this helps you with your problem.
You'll need to go to a jeweler to get a new battery,usually they have to order it, BE PREPARED for a price shock. ihad to get one for my wife's watch a few years ago $68.00 just for the battery another $10.00 to put it in.
Some watches do have a battery inside for reserve energy if it is an older watch 10 years it may need a new battery...or the one in it is bad...it's hard to say when in doubt just replace the battery since it only costs a few dollars.
Also you can leave it in INDIRECT sunlight for a day and see if that works.
If it's a quartz watch, replace the battery. If it's a mechanical watch, even a "self-winding" model, wind it manually - unless you're very active it needs a manual winding if you don't wear it all the time. If it's more than a few years old it may need cleaning by a watchmaker.
The ECO series of Citizen's do not require battery replacement, as they are solar powered. If the watch stops due to a long period of non-use, there is a procedure in the manual as well as the Citizen website on how to get it running again. You will have to expose it to light for several hours (but not with lots of heat such as a car dash) to get it running. If you continue to have trouble, you may have a problem with the watch. I bought my wife a ladies ECO drive about 8 years ago and bought one for myself about 2 years ago and have not had a bit of problems with either. They are extremely good watches and it is nice not to have to worry about "when will the battery die?"
You need to expose this watch to sunlight for about 8 hours to let it recharge it's solar cell. Make sure that sunlight is shining directly on the face and not just "kind of" shining on the face. I put it in a window ledge where the sun beats down to make sure it gets the most sunlight possible.
Repeat this for a few days to make sure it's fully charged.
I have a similar solar modle Ive had since 1995 , about 4 years ago it started loosing time and the second hand started double ticking. I sat it down out side on a cool summer day for the hole day in the bright sun and never have had a problem since. knock on wood! It was also runover by a car last year and still works good. I wont ever get ride of it. Hopefully this helps u guys out
