    Is the watch an automatic winding or hand winding or both? Is the watch a Replica or a real Reverso? If you didn't pay for it or it was a gift, would the person giving it to you buy a several thousand dollar watch and give it to you. I am trying to determine if the watch is real or replica. The solution is different for each. Thanx for your patience here.

  • Tony Riches Oct 27, 2011

    All good questions. I was sold the watch by an individual I deem to be reputable, in a JLC box and with the papers. It's a hand wound mechanical watch, and I paid a price I deemed reasonable given its age (10 years old). I might possibly discover I've bought a fake when I put it in for service, although I suspect not. The Duoface is an intricate little beast from a cosmetic perspective, and it does look kosher to me. I'm pretty sure it's real.

  • Tony Riches Oct 27, 2011

    One other comment - I've had the watch for two months and it kept pretty good time - accurate to about 20 seconds a day (as much as one can tell on a watch with a second hand that's no size at all).

    I would suggest you ask a watchmaker to look at the watch and determine if it is real. Not a jeweler but rather someone that knows what they're looking at. This is an exceptional watch and you don't need advice from someone like the person below that suggested a loose battery. The watch, if fully wound should have a "power reserve" of around 40 hours. If you wind it fully, in other words until it stops winding, and it stops when worn, you have a problem only a watchmaker will be able to solve. I don't know if you are near a big city, but try and find a watchmaker that is either "wostep" certified or "CW21" certified. Best of luck

The only way that makes any sense is if there is something loose inside the watch possible the battery plate or battery are moving when you are moving. The back will need to be removed and the battery plate checked. You will need to have the watch checked at a jewelry store or watch repair shop. Thank you i hope this helps a little !!

Seconds hand not moving


The roles haven't been reversed. The seconds hand for normal timekeeping is the small one and the chronograph timer seconds hand is the large one. The reason for that is that it is much easier to determine the precise second with the larger hand. It working exactly as it should. If you like having the large second hand moving all the time you will not hurt the watch by leaving it running. All chronographs work this way. Nice watch - wear it well!

I have an old ladies bulava watch serial #7895084. Is it worth anything?


Bulova is well known brand and your watch definitely have some value. Unfortunately, it is impossible to make valuation over the internet even if the serial No. is supplied. There are very many things to consider: level of wear, age, movements wear, glass, appearance, timekeeping, case, e.t.c. So, without seeing and inspecting it, I can't name any figures. Visit your nearest watch dealer and ask to do an estimate. You may be charged for that, but at least you will know exactly what your watch is worth.
Rate me, plz.

Hi - took it off for 36 hrs - never had an issue - oyster submariner not moving now ... thanks for your help


This is a mechanical auto-wind watch. It self winds when worn. But if taken off for a couple of days it will have stopped and won't start running again unless it is wound.

Put it on and wear it for a few minutes. This will wind it enough to start it running again. Then set the time and wear it and you'll be fine.

Hope this helps.

I have rolex datejust that looses time, i do not wear it to bed.


Hi Sggann. You shouldn't need to wear a Rolex automatic watch all the time for it to be kept wound, and you can in any event manually wind it 30 times to top-up the mainspring. You don't say how long you've had the watch, or when or if you've serviced it, but it sounds like it might need a clean and service; this replaces the oils which can thin out over time and effect the timekeeping of the watch, and the watch will be tested to ensure it runs well. Get Rolex to do it, unless you know a capable and accredited watchmaker - it's not cheap (around £250), but then again the watches cost a lot! All the best; Eagle58

Automatic Watch Stops


There can be hundereds of causes why your watch isn't working properly, so, I'll not name them.
One is clear- without help of skilled watchmaker your watch will NEVER work properly.
NOTE: It may sound very strange, but mechanical watches do NOT like to be left without job.
Next time you decide to leave mechanical watch aside for long time- do not forget to wind it up once in a 2-3 days even if you are not wearing it.
This will help to prolong watch movements life and keep timekeeping steady and accurate.

Rolex watch


Hello Kristy

You need to add this underneath the the person you are talking to by clicking COMMENT below their post. Fixya gets 7 million posts a year, so the chance of the person seeing it are non existent. Your original post is in the link.

I have a Chinese Rolex Submariner clone. It gained 5 minutes a day when I first got it. Your body's electrical energy and magnetism can affect timekeeping and you can have the watch demagnetised.

Rolex watch stops only when wear it

Rolex watch stops only when I wear it


Kristy,
Stress won't affect your watch's timekeeping ability, but position will. When you lay the watch down at night, in which position is it? Also, during the day, is your arm in a static position for long periods of time? A Rolex chronometer (like the Datejust) should run approx. 36 hours after being fully wound -- without any movement. If the watch stops dead, then there is a problem with the movement and/or rotor. If it losses time, I'd bet on a static position problem. Let me know the answers to those questions and I'll try to help you get to the bottom of the problem.

The watch stopped working


The Tag Heur repair center says an automatic watch must go through an "initiation" process. They recommend winding manually 40 revolution of the crown clockwise. You must wear an automatic watch at least eight hours per day. Repat the initiation if the watch is not worn for 20 hours or so.
