Question about Watches

1 Answer

My Fossil FS4283 had been working fine since the time I bought it in 1997. It stopped working suddenly a couple of days ago and no matter what I do doesn't start back. It doesn't have a battery and charges itself by hand motion. It has a key that can be turned clockwise continuously to charge the watch. But inspite using the key for more than 5 hours I am not able to see any motion in the watch again. Highly appreciate your help.

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.

If you do not wind the watch, and if it is electronic it obviously has a battery. Very possible even with a new watch the battery has run out. This is especially if the watch was sitting for about a year in their inventory before you bought it.

I am not sure if your watch has a kinetic type movement where it charges the watch, or it is purely an electro-mechanical type movement. I did read it has a quartz referenced movement for the mechanical balance wheel. This would certainly involved a battery. If changing the battery is not the fix you would have to send the watch for service.

Why would this watch loose time and have to be reset???..........repeatedly.


I had the same problem sometime ago but with a fossil. I had the battery replaced several times in the matter of a couple of months. It seemed to have happened during the very cold months. I also found that I put my watch in the same pocket I put my Iphone in too. I'm not sure if there was a relevance but after I stopped, the watch seemed to fix itself.

I just bought a Fossil sport watch, model CH2643. I've owned it for 5 days and on 5 or 6 occasions I have found the watch had stopped. The culprit to stopping the watch is the stem. It doesn't seem to...


On some watches the winder needs to be screwed (clockwise?) after pushing it in.

If this does not solve your problem, I suggest you go to your nearest dealer (for a list see the the Fossil website and go to the bottom of the screen and click on "store locator").

It may be that the watch is faulty and needs to be returned as a claim against the warranty.
