Question about Rotary Watches

How do I fix loose hands on my rotary skeleton watch?

The watch works fine when wound, but when I move, the arms move so I can't keep track of the time.

That is a job best handled by someone in watch repair. Take it in to almost any jeweler and talk to the repair person they have there to see what he would charge for taking it apart and fixing it.

SOURCE: When the watch sits for a period of time, usually

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.

SOURCE: My Aquaracer second hand problem

This is most likely the "battery change indicated" feature of your watch.  Change the battery, and see if the problem goes away.  If it does not, then it could be a problem with the stepper motor, which will require a watchmaker.  Of course all of this is dependent on the assumption that your watch has a quartz movement.  If it is an automatic, or mechanical you have bigger problems.

SOURCE: 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".

SOURCE: Watch hands not moving after battery change.

I suspect that there is a setting up procedure that needs to befollowed when the batteries have been replaced. (I had a similarproblem when I did this with my watch - although the hands were moving,they were incorrect!)

I was unable to find any instructions on their web site but if you go to their web site (/www.sekonda.co.uk/) or your own area web site for Seconda, at the top of the page you will see a store locator tab, click on this to find your local store and ask them for some instructions.

SOURCE: Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.

The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.

I have a folio 21 jewels limited addition watch. I dont know how to wiend it. And I need to know what its worth.


I have no idea of the value.
You say that it's self-winding, but that you don't know how to wind it? Just wear it - the movement of the arm and wrist winds the watch. If the watch is fully wound down then it may take a while for the watch to have enough power to restart. Some automatics will allow you to wind the watch in the normal way with the crown.

I'm not sure about this arm movement.


if the watch as not been worn for a long time it's best to wind it by hand first to get it started, just make sure the winder is pushed all the way in and then just keep winding it clockwise till it start going..

My watch stops in the night.But works fine when i wear it.any ideas?


Yes, the Movado is a self winder, and it was designed for the sports active wearer, of which the motion of the wearer's arm provides the power to keep the watch wound. Apparently you are not active enough for the watch to be fully wound, so when you take it off, it will use up all of the stored energy in the spring and stop. many self winders will only store enough energy for 8-12 hours of use and will require constant wearing. You could try wearing it to sleep and see if this is enough to keep it wound.

If you feel that this is not the case for your watch, then you may want to have it looked at by a watch maker

I just bout my invicta skeleton ghost. Its an automatic watch and for some reason it won't work for longer than five minutes. Is there something that I did, or am doing, that u could point out to me?


If the watch has been allowed to run down, then it may need some considerable activity to wind it up again.

Hold the watch level and shake it gently from side to side for a few minutes (this should operate the self winding mechanism and wind the watch up). After this, wearing the watch should keep it wound up.

If the watch is not worn for a day, is it normal for it to stop or slow down? Vintage SS mens datejust, oyster perpetual.


mcdevito75 here, Yes it is normal, especially if your Rolex is an automatic watch. The motion of your Wrist / Hand keeps your watch wound thru the Counter balance on the movement, as the counter balance turns it winds the mainspring little by little, thus keeping your watch wound. Once you take off your watch, if long enough the mainspring simply un-winds and slows and will eventually stop your watch completely. You can keep your Rolex wound even when you take it off by means of a watch winder, a small machine that will keep your watch in motion, or by hand, by rocking the watch back and firth in your hand for about 30 seconds, say before you gpo to bed at night, this way there is always some wind to your watch.

Emporio armani 4211


mcdevito75 here, There are 2 ways to wind your Armani Emporio watch, I'm figureing it"s an automatic watch, on some automatics you can start an initial ticking by winding the stem in any direction, if when you wind the stem you feel any resistance then this is the type of automatic watch you Start with about 20--30 winds of the watch. If on the other hand when winding the stem feels very loose and free, no resistance at all, then this is the type of automatic that relize on pure wrist and arm motion to start ticking, simply hold the watch in your hand and make small circle motions, or rocking motion, you should detect something moveing inside the watch, this is the winding counter balncer it's normal, rock or circle the watch for approx. 30 seconds to get it started. In both cases, after the watch starts, the motion of your wrist / arm keeps it wound as you wear it.
