Question about Tag Heuer Tiger Wood Golf WAE1111 Watch
Posted by Anonymous on
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

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,
