SOURCE: second hand on my watch now goes in 5 second intervals

Check the instruction manual if you have one. Tag-Heuer watches move in 5 second intervals to let you know the battery needs replacing. A neat feature. Now you know that you have a real Tag!

SOURCE: second hand sweeping five second increments

Yes, it is sign for time to replace the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) device. This device forces the integrated circuit board to move seconds hand in 2 - 5 seconds increments when the battery power level is less than necessary for smooth running of the watch movement. At the same time the timekeeping of the watch is not affected and it will still keep good time for about 2 weeks.
Rate me, please.

It is a feature of this watch, it is referred to as the end of life (EOL) feature, it is a way of letting you know its time to change the battery before it dies to the point where it cannot keep time anymore

I have purchased a new Seiko kinetic SUN007 mens watch. After hours of swinging back & forth to charge the watch, the 'second' hand still moves in two-second increments. (After charging via movement,...


I have a Seiko kinetic watch and it has behaved perfectly for over two years and therefore I think that yours is faulty.

I suggest you send it to Seiko to have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

Skips time


If it is not a feature built in to the watch to save power when it needs winding, I would say it has a bad gear wheel inside.
I would go here, join, and ask in the Rolex Forum,

Has your display got a flashing display "BT" at the right hand side of the display? If it has, then it means that the battery needs replacing.

My Wittnauer is jumping every 5 seconds


Your watch is fitted with EOL feature and let you know about insufficient battery power by moving seconds hand by 2-5-second increments. You have about two weeks time to change the battery from the EOL engagement or your watch will start to malfunction or even stop. In this case you will have to reset your watch after battery replacement. EOL = End Of Life (relates to battery only). Jumping seconds hand means it's time to change battery.

Second hand skips


This is warning: it's time to change the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature and this is how the low battery power is displayed. However, the watch will keep running correctly for about two weeks.

Watch second hand


I had the same problem with my Tag. Same 4 second jump. It's definitely the battery. I'm surprised at only 3 months, but maybe it sat a while in the display case. Mine was over a year and a half.

pulling the crown out to position 2 and pressing button to zero it out one increment at a time is the way to do it do touch the watch hands. Works on fossil watches as well as tag watches
