Question about Tissot Watches

1 Answer

Hi I have a Tissot Seastar 17 jewels manual wind 1964 mens watch. It runs, but is looses about 1/2 hr a day. Sometimes if i leave it face up on the table. It will run on time.

When I wind it up, it feels like there is something lose between the winding stem and the cogs. Do you think it needs oiling?

From your description it could be the main spring is broken, or there is a gear and or bushing failure. You will have to give the watch to a place that can service your watch. If you contact Tossot customer support they can advise you.

You have to wind the watch till it is fully wound (significant resistance should be felt).
It doesn't matter how many times you wind it (1 or even 40) - what matters is the strength of the spring.
Do as follows:
At any time in the morning wind the watch up till you feel there is no more winding left (should be quite tough). Memorize the time you did it.
Leave the watch (or wear it) till it stops completely.
Count the hours your watch did work (from the time you wound it).
Now you know exact power reserve for your watch.
It is advised to wind the watch 2-3 hours before the power reserve is gone.

Rate me.
, please.

SOURCE: My watch no longer functions even after winding.

I have found that some of these "automatic" Fossils also contain a battery. That is how that provide an automatic watch at such a cheap price. I recommend taking it to a jeweler to have them check this. If it needs repair it will likely cost near the watche's replacement value.

SOURCE: Elgin 18s pocket watch (1908). Will not wind,

Sounds like a broken main spring.

This is a fairly easy fix and may also be due for a cleaning and service.

Find a local repairman in your area.

The tissot visodate watch is automatic not battery driven.


I would not wind the watch manually. I also have a Tissot. If you cannot wear it often enough to keep it going, you can purchase a watch box that is made for self-winding watches which will turn the watch periodically in order to keep it wound.

Hi, there. I just purchased a Tissot PRC 17158652 from Amazon.com, brand new. It is running 10 minutes slow every hour. (I have only had this watch for 2 days). Should I return it? Or is there...


Amazon is the selling place for fakes. Take it to a local Tissot dealer or jeweler for verification. It sound like it says Tissot on the outside but says 'made in China on the inside. They will do that for you for no cost. Tissot are a great Swiss timepiece and should be accurate to a minute a month. If it is a Tissot, they calibrate using a gadget that listens to the ticks. They will keep it 24 hours.

My Chinese made Rolex gained 30 minutes a day. I see a pattern :>)

Bought a 1970s tissot automatic seastar watch and was ticking for two days the just stopped. Have tried winding but won't work. What is most likely the problem?


A self winding watch will run for 2-3 days if it is not worn (they thrive on being used) and it sounds as if you have not been using it; is this the case?

It could be that the winder does not operate on the spring (some watches don't), so to wind it up you need to activate the self winding mechanism.

You can do this by gently swinging the watch from side to side for a few minutes. This will simulate the normal operation when it is being worn.

If you continue to have trouble with it stopping, it could be that it needs cleaning. I had a similar problem with a watch I had some years ago.

If it is the eta 2824-2 model. When you say the hands don't turn, I take it it does not work? its an automatic so needs wrist/ hand movement to wind the rotor. You can manually wind the watch by simply turning the crown (without pulling the crown out) Try doing this first.

Tissot is Swatch. They do not sell parts! You need to contact the company OR where you purchased the watch.
