If your watch is an 'automatic winding' watch try this. Wind the watch by hand(yes, it can be wound by hand as well) for about 30 winds. Now see if it makes it through the night. If not it need attention by a watchmaker.If it is a quartz watch, the same applies if you have a new battery and it still stops periodically, it is time for a watchmaker.If you experience this problem and have a mechanical watch that you only wear occasionally here is another scenario. Your watch is automatically wound so you put it on assuming it will wind itself. It will eventually, maybe tomorrow. Meanwhile it is running but only on very little winding as the autoprocess is generally a slow process. The solution is that when you put on an automatic that has run down to lack of movement, you need to wind it by hand. Once you wind it up(30 turns) the automatic winding feature will keep it wound up fully. The answer to your next question is no. No you can't 'overwind' your automatic watch. It is made to 'slip' once fully wound. Watches run best when fully wound versus half or less wound. Michael

Hi,

An automatic watch needs to be worn, wound daily or placed on a watch winder to keep it going. It is not like a quartz watch that has a battery and can keep going when not worn. A modern automatic watch will run for about 36 - 48 hours on a full wind.

A quartz watch that stops like you describe is in need of a cleaning by a professional watchmaker. When this stopping occurs it is an indication the oils have dried out and the warmth from your body heats them so they are semi liquid again and the watch runs. but when the watch cools again the oils harden and the watch stops.

Hope this helps,

Does t. woods watch require pressure testing w/ battery replcmt?


As long as they don't charge you $40, it should be free. Having said that my machine for testing water resistance cost almost $5000. I have to recoup that somewhere. Now you know why it cost so much. Does it require testing, no. But kon't come crying to me your watch leaked and I was the last to open it. I told you it needed to be tested but you didn't want to spend the $40. That is the view from the other side of the bench.

Does the tag heuer wk1113 wrist watch have a serial number on the back case ?


Yes. Its always under the Model Number. Some model numbers were etched, instead of stamped or engaved, on the case and over time may be worn off but on a newer watch it should be visible.

Tag Heuer Tiger Woods watch stops regularly


You should go back to the watch repair shop and ask for complete check-out of your watch. No watchmaker can return the watch to the customer without properly checking all the gearwork, timekeeping, battery power and all the features the watch has.
As your watch was serviced and the battery replacement took place, the executives of all the work done are responsible for all the faults your watch is having right now.
As watch repairs are quite expensive and time consuming, they (probably) will argue with you about this issue, but DO NOT give up, as these are YOUR consumer rights to ask for the job to be properly done (under warranty or paid by you). In case if you will be turned down, ask for FULL refund and find another shop.
If the repair shop is ready to undertake the job again, do not rush them, as the complete watch overhaul and check may take up to 6 weeks (this MUST be done at no any cost to you if you have the warranty or allready paid for the job).
P.S. I suspect that there is some fault in your watch geartrain, because if it is shooked or moved, the watch works, but when idle-it stops. That means the service of your watch was NOT DONE properly, and some failure or even dirt in geartrain was missed by the watchmaker (sometimes it happens- nobody is perfect!). This doesn't mean you have to agree with it, so, go and get your watch properly serviced and checked out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Tag tiger woods runs down over night


I have a couple of questions. Do you wear the watch all day? How is your activity level ? If the answers to these is yes and good, then the problem lies in the self winding mechanism.
Without seeing the watch it is imposable to give you a complete estimate of the work needed.
We offer free estimates and all our work is guaranteed.
