Question about Al Agnew Al Ag 3 Piece Pocket Watch Collection
I bought an Al Agnew pocket watch used on ebay. When I received it I put a new battery in it right away. It would not hold time and the second hand stops in one spot and clicks for a while then moves on. Now it will not move at all. Is there a fix for this? Or should I replace the clock, and if so where do I find a replacement? Thank you
Often with battery powered watches the word "Quartz" will be written on the dial. In the abscent of that you can look at the mechanism inside (typically by removing the case back).
Alternately (this may not be an absolute confirmation) with the winder in neutral position i.e. pressed all the way in, turn the crown (winding button) and if it spins freely it's probably quartz. Because unless it's broken most mechanical watches click as the watch is
wound up (except some automatics which cant be crown wound).
Plus if it's working and left unworn for a few days yet continues to run it's probably quartz.
Please rate this solution.
