My guess is the battery was just changed? This watch needs to be cleared when the battery is changed. I recommend seeing a watch maker/technician to have the circuit board AC'd.

My watch is keeping accurate time. The send hand holds for 3-4 seconds then moves the like amount. In other words, instead of moving every second it goes in 4 seconds at a time


It is called the "eol" or "end of life indicator" Not yours! Your battery. Notice the time is still correct. This is a feature some better watches have to tell you your battery is about to go dead.

The movement on the second hand is jumping every 5 seconds instead of every second, however the time is still correct.


Many high end quartz watches have a feature called the EOL or end of life indicator. This causes the seconds hand to jump 2, 3 or 5 seconds depending on the make of watch when the battery life is low. The watch will continue to keep accurate time until the battery dies completely. So, when you see your seconds hand jumping multiple seconds it is time to get a battery.

The second hand on my cartier santos is ticking only every 5 seconds


This will be what is called the end of life indicator.There will be 2 or so weeks of life left in the battery,it still keeps time but will soon stop.Use a quality watchmaker to change the battery and ask about its water seal.

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.


You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.

You have to change battery. 3 years was a quite long service time for one battery. After replacement your watch will work as brand new. Rate me, plz.

Changed the battery with no apparent difficulty, (second hand was skipping), now it will do nothing and I am sure the battery did not touch the coil


The 2 second beat is a visual indication the battery is nearing its life cycle.

Not uncommon for these batteries to be on the shelf for a long time.

Always test before install.

Hope this tip helps.

New watch is losing 5 to 15 minutes a day


This could be that the battery is slow. Newer swiss watches have a indicator in the movement of the watch that makes the sweep second hand skip every few seconds to indicate that the battery is slow. On regular japan made watches the watch just simply starts slowing down. Your watch could be new but the battery in it could have a long shelf life.

Second hand doesn't move for each second


Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.
