I have an automatic raymond weil geneve watch with the yellow chrono, that is less than 2 years old which has stopped working. I wind and wind and nothing. Help please.


this sounds like one of the wheels of the watch movement is broken or else the movement itself needs to be cleaned and oiled up.

There is no display on the watch at all, like the battery is dead but it is less than a year old. Is there some combination of buttons to push?


mcdevito75 here, Sorry, but a watch battery that is less than 1 year old can still be weak or dead, You have to try a new battery first. Battery could have gotton loose, or have dirty contacts. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area. It"s possible you shut the watch off also, Press and hold the MODE button 2-3 seconds see if the display comes back.

My Rolex simply quit running a year or so ago. Is there anything besides a complete overhaul that I can do to try and get it running again? What should a typical "tuneup" cost?


First, try manually winding it about 50 turns. If that doesn't get it started it may need cleaning if it's a few years old. In addition to the authorized repair centers there are many fine independent watchmakers who can service it for less money. Depending on the problem it could cost $200 to $500 for repair. It's unusual for the watch to just quit unless it's been damaged somehow, that's why I suggest winding it fully first.

IT IS RUNNING SLOW EVEN THOUGH IT'S BEEN WOUND.


If your watch is less than 2 years old then they may service it for free, and if it is that new I would take it back to point of purchase for assistance. Even though Rolex's are Chronometers they are not known for their ability to keep near perfect time. If you are losing only 6 seconds a day then you are still over 99% accurate and it does not really get much better than that (that means you may loose a couple mninutes a month. A watch winder that you set your watch in while not wearing can keep it spinning/ winding and therefore may increase accuracy.
If your watch is loosing a lot of time (half an hour a day) or if the watch is more than 5 years old, it likely needs some servicing. Oils can harden and thicken within your watch and this will affect the performance. Rolex recommends servicing your watch every 5 years or so to keep it in peak condition. A usual service entails a cleaning, oiling and regulating; this usually costs from $350 to $700 depending on where you go and if nothing else is wrong with your watch.
But again, if you are only loosing a few minutes a day, then your watch is still in good shape and I would not recommend paying the money to get it to work only a small bit better.

How much is the capacitor problem in Seiko SNL001 or similar model watches as I get to read reviews abt' capacitor problems appearing in Seiko kinetic watches after 3-4 years and the repair also happens to...


Can be fixed in less than one week and cost is less than $80. See web site for Timelywatch repar.com. They guarantee their work. And yes, the old capacitors are only good for 3-4 years. All replacements are now with a much better, long lasting Lithium Ion battery.

My watch the bezel that you change the time / date with, when pulled out comes all the way out, can not change time. Watch less than a year old, can not find the warrenty, not the end of the world, do not...


There are two possible causes: settting lever in your watch is broke/out of engagement or stem is broke. Not a big deal, but watchmakers skills are needed to fix it, as watch must be dismantled.
Any decent watchmaker can do it, so, just find your nearest watch repair shop and ask to fix it. Prices may vary, but no more than 25% of the cost of watch itself.
P.S. It is called Crown or Winding Crown (you say bezel).

Rate me, please.

6 year old Casio no. 2271 has ceased responding to buttons


Hi, If you buy some new batteries - i.e. from ebay (very cheap) and replace the old ones - or take tyhe watch into a jewellers and get them replaced (appx. £15) this should do the trick. The batteries should be replaced every 2 years.
