SOURCE: new watch not working

I would go and get the battery replaced. Watches will run off the battery even when sitting on the shelf in the stores. Replacement are usually less than $10 at the mall or check a jewelry store.

Accutime batman watch time setting


if it is the Batman watch that has a secret screen that lights up when you pushed the bottom middle of the watch face this is what worked for me.I call that secret middle button the mode button.
push and hold that secret button on the watch face until the hour side of the time starts to blink. let go when you see the hour blink and then you can keep pressing to change the hour. to change the minute I let it go back into sleep mode then press and hold the secret button on the watch face and when it starts to blink let go for half a second and then press down and hold that button again and a minute numbers should start blinking. when they start blinking let go and then push once for each minute. it seems once you start one of these cycles letting go for half a second and then pressing and holding the mode button works. you'll have to experiment with how long to let go and then push.

I suggest you talk to Rolex or thier local dealer to see if the slowness you are concerned about is outside the guaranteed accuracy for the watch.

I can't find any reference to accuracy on the Rolex site but other makers have mentioned 15 seconds per month for the accuracy of an automatic watch. This seems poor compared to the accuracy that we have become used to from electronic watches but it is a mechanical watch!

Speaking to the maker might clarify what you can expect from your watch and if it is outside their tolerances, I would expect them to put it right under their warranty.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
It seems to me to be the battery. Batteries vary from watch to watch but the norm is 2 years. But you never know how long a watch has sat on the shelf of a store, etc.
I would take to a local jeweler to have them test the battery in your watch.
Hope that helps.

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the chargeing system has gone bad in your Fossil watch, Best Bet look for a small watch repair shop in your area, have them take a look at thr watch.

I bought this watch citizen BL5334-04E year ago,


Mechanically operated date changes occur at 12 O'clock. If your watch thinks it is midnight when it is noon then it will change date.

The solution is to wind your watch on 12 hours.
