1. A battery can only take a certain number of charge cycles before it fails.
2. The watch needs to be disassembled and cleaned.
3. The watch requires a new battery, which can be obtained by visiting an electric watch repair shop.

How to set pocket watch

Hi John, There are several possiblitites depending on the watch you have. If it is a battery watch you set it like most modern watches by pulling the pendant and the hands should move. If it is a vintage watch it may set the same way. If gentle pulling the crown does not work try this. Your watch may be a lever set watch. This requires removing the crystal of your watch will be screwed on. If it doesn't loosen easily try putting the watch between your palms and twist. Once the crystal and bezel loosen remove it and set it aside. Now look near the 2 o'clock position. A lever set watch will have a small metal piece sticking up that is designed to be hooked with your fingernail and pulled out. When in the out position your watch will now be in the setting position and your hands will move when you rotate the crown. After setting push the lever back in and you will now be in the winding position. Replace the crystal and carefully screw it down but not too tightly. There are other systems but I am guessing this will cover your watch. Merry Christmas

Should i pull the crown to save battery if i store my quartz watch for a few months

I don't think storing a watch with the crown out accomplishes much. That I am aware of, pulling the crown out does not break the electrical connection between the battery and the watch. At least in looking at quartz movements, I don't see any electrical apparatus that insulates the crown in any way so that it could act as a switch. I think that in quartz watches that hack, pulling the crown out mechanically disengages or interferes with the drive train, but it doesn't stop the oscillator or stepper motor from running.
With quartz movements, at least those I have seen the internals of, (most ETA and ISA designs, some Rondas, a few Seikos), pulling the crown to the setting position does one of two things:
1) On better, jeweled movements - it breaks contact between the coil and battery, thus stopping the motor. The oscilator continues to be powered, but most of the current consumption is from the motor. These pulling the crown out does save battery life. Or,

2) On cheaper non-jeweled movements - it blocks the rotation of the second hand gear, and stalls the motor. These are observable by a "twitchy" second hand when the stem is out. This method actually kills the battery faster, as a stalled electric motor draws more current.

Manuel for yacht timer 700 please. Best regards P.Hessner

Could not find a download for instructions on this watch, but I did manage to find some basic instructions for the Sector brand. I hope this helps as this is the best I can come up with.
Good luck.
Sector Chronograph Watch Instructions
  • Most chronograph watches have screw-down crowns for water resistance. You must unscrew the watch crown before you can make any changes to the watch time. After time is set screw the crown back in. To utilize the chronograph dials, use the buttons on the side of the watch. One button will be for the second timer. Press once for the second hand to start timing. Press again to stop it. Another button will be to reset the second hand timer back to zero. Sector Chronograph watches may have different dial functions (see link in References).
  • Sector Dual-Time Watch Instructions
  • Because Sector watches are known for their sports capabilities, the Dual-Time watches have screw-down crowns. For Dual-Time timepieces, unscrew the crown counterclockwise. Pull the crown to middle position to set the date. Pull the crown out to its fully extended position and rotate it to set the day of the week, hour and time. Press and hold in the crown and turn clockwise to seal the crown back in to the watch.
  • Sector Ana-Digi Watch Instructions
  • Sector Ana-Digi timepieces have analog hands plus digital timekeeping functionality. To set the time, unscrew the crown counterclockwise and then clockwise to the appropriate time. The digital functionalities are programmed by the buttons on the side of the case. Depending on the style of the Sector watch, you can set the digital time with one button, set the date display, 1/100 seconds chronograph timer, altimeter, thermometer and alarm functions.

    The timer on Pulsar watch does not line up at 12 when reset.

    To set the timer hand on these models of Pulsar watches, do the following: 
    Looking at the face of the watch, there are two buttons and a crown on the right side. The TOP button is Button "A". - The BOTTOM button is Button "B".
    There are 3 positions on the crown: IN (#1), FIRST CLICK (#2) & SECOND CLICK (#3).
    First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' position (#3) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #3!)
    Push and hold Button "A" for two (2) seconds. The dial will sweep around to the 12 O'clock position. You can advance the timer while the crown is in position #3 (second click out) to reset it back to the default position. 
    The manual says that if you pull the crown out to position #3 while the timer is measuring, the hand will reset back to the 12 o'clock position... I haven't tried that, so I can't confirm.

    RELACED WATCH BATTERY BUT WATCH STILL STOPS

    The best place to take is a jewelery store or some place that can repair watches/replace batteries that has a cyclonic quartz watch tester b2164de.jpg A cyclonic can detect if there is a pulse (the electrical signal that makes the hands move) even if the hands don't move. It can also spin the gears/hands to unstick the gears if some debris is holding them up. If there is no signal the coil or something inside the watch may have been nicked or something else is wrong with the watch and may have to go to a watchmaker/repairer or replaced.

    The battery was changed two weeks ago. A week

    Greg it sounds like you should take your watch to a propper watchmaker. (qualified) Most jewellers are not well educated in regard to watches and their servicing.
