Question about Tissot T-Touch T33159851 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Tissot T-Touch-Works fine until just about the end of the warranty

Bought my T-Touch in August 05 and all was well until July 07, when the digital display went blank. Local dealer changed the battery and the watch worked for two weeks then dead again. After two more battery replacements in six weeks, the dealer put in a new movement and hey presto four weeks after that the watch has gone dead again. It starts by being unable to synchronize the watch hands with the digital display and no function of any T-Touch features, followed by the blinking of the display and then nothing. Of course, as luck would have it, the warranty is now up and the dealer's asking big bucks to fix. Not too sure I want to fix the damn thing, my cheap Seiko still keeps good time after 5 years. This is sure the last Tissot watch I will be buying. The Swiss can make crap watches after all.

I suggest writing to Tissot in both your home country and in the head office in Switzerland. Use both email and paper letters. If you can provide documentation of the attempted fixes that will really help your case. Since you had a history of problems you have every right to ask them to stand behind their product. Perhaps there is a new warranty on the replacement movement, for example. You have nothing to lose except a bit of time, paper and postage. You could even ask your dealer to back you up with this -- he or she will still get paid for the work if Tissot agrees to extend the warranty.

How do I reset my tissot t touch expert


Steps to Synchronize the Hands
  1. Press the centre pusher (T). The watch should beep once.
  2. Touch the centre of the touch-sensitive face until opt appears, in opt select 24H Cm (or 12H Fft or 24H Fft or 12H Cm) is shown in the digital LCD display.
  3. Press and hold the centre pusher (T) for approximately 5 seconds. The watch will beep once and then again, a second time, after 5 seconds have passed. After the second beep, the digital LCD display should read SYNCHRO. If not, return to step one.
  4. Press the upper pusher (+) to advance the hour hand until it is positioned exactly at 12:00. (PH press T button to to switch to minute hand adjust)
  5. Press the lower pusher (-) to advance the minute hand until it is also positioned exactly at 12:00.

The display went blank, changing battery didn't bring it back to life. I have 2 of these watches and have successfully changed batteries before, despite the tricky process. is this watch dead?


Unless the new battery is dead that would explain it, but assuming the battery is good it indicates a failure in the electronic module and should be considered done.

Invicta pro diver 4469 under guarantee stopped working bought 10th July 2009 can i get this repaired in the UK with sending back to Florida thanks chris malone


I have looked too and can only find their Florida address.

This is unusual, as most makers have authorised dealers throughout the world.

Perhaps a local dealer may be able to locate an authorised repair agent.

Setting my Tissot touch Navigator 3000


Per the manual: http://support.tissot.ch/usersmanual/140-en.pdf
When your battery begins to die, the hands are no longer synced.
After replacing the battery, go into local time mode (pressing the center of the crystal) until "Set" appears. Press the crown. Scroll to "ECO BAT", press and hold the crown for 5 seconds until "SYNCHRO" appears. Use the "+" button to move the minute hand and the "-" to move the hour hand until they are in the upright or 12:00 position.
Either press the crown again or wait until the watch automatically leaves the Set mode. Your hands should now represent the local time.

Analogue hands don't correspode to digital clock


Hi,

Sometimes a watch will be off center due to shock, dead battery etc. Symptoms are; hands don’t line up, digital and analog time doesn’t match, Compass function doesn’t have the hands exactly opposite etc. This can all be fixed. The Synchronization function can be used:

1. Activate Crystal
2. Tap center until you are the unit’s screen (12h or 24h, F ft or C m).
3. Push and hold (at least five seconds) the center crown
4. Watch will beep and word (SYNCHRO) will appear in the display.
5. Use the top + button to line up the minute hand right on the 12.
6. Use the bottom – button to line up the hour hand right on the 12.
7. When finished, press crown and you will go back to time.

I am trying to reset my T Touch watch from Tissot and can not find book. need to reset time and also how to convert from metric to US standards, like ferinhit and from meters to feet.


SET TIME:
1. Activate Crystal
2. Tap center of screen until digital time comes up
3. Press and hold top button (+) until watch beeps, display will be flashing
4. Use + and – key to adjust time. If several hours off, hold appropriate key and
after first hour passes, only the hour hand will move.
5. Make sure the digital display shows A or P for AM or PM
6. When finished, touch center of screen again.

SET DATE:
1. Activate Crystal
2. Tap center of screen until date appears
3. Press and hold top + button until watch beeps and display flashes.
4. Use + and – buttons to change date to correct one.
5. Make sure to set time first, if you set date first, you run the risk of the date
changing at noon rather than midnight.
