    Sorry, I failed to mention that it is a Kinetic Watch and should therefore recharge by movement?

    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. Rate me, please.

Some Seiko kinetic watches and other self charging watches do this when the battery is low. If it relies on you moving to keep it charged that may explain why it stopped in hospital. Try giving it a good shake and see if it starts moving smoothly again

If you want to avoid this annoying problem with your Seiko then buy a rotating devices that keeps your watch fully charged. But probably it's time to get the capacitor replaced with a Lithium Ion battery. They seem to only last about 3 to 4 years. If you need more info here is my site; Timelywatchrepair.com

Swatch diaphane second hand stuck


Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

10 year old Seiko Kinetic (model5M62-0B00) blue face. Last week stopped and after some shaking started again but seconds moved in 2 sec intervals for a few hours. Went OK for a week and again last night...


After 10 years it will be likely that the Kinetic capacitor will need upgrading. Your watch is designed to tick in two second intervals to tell you the power is very low. The power button will work again when it has some power to show. Yorkshire Watches www,yorkshirewatches.co.uk can do the upgrade for you if your in the UK. Give them a ring.

Why isn't the second hand on my Wenger Commando SR not working? The red seconds hand is not moving. The small seconds counter of the chronograph works and the minute and hour hands work.


The large seconds hand will remain at 12 unless you press the upper right button to start it. Pres again to stop it and press the lower button to reset it. The small seconds hand that always runs is the seconds for the time. The large seconds hand is for the stopwatch function. If you like to have it running all the time just start it and leave it running - it won't harm the watch.

Second hand not sweeping but jumps at 5 secs intervals. Appears to be keeping accurate time.


When the second hand moves in short jumps rather than a smooth sweep or a second-by-second hop, it means that the battery is about to run out. Usually, with a week or two the watch will stop working altogether. You should go and have it changed as soon as possible.

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.

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!

The second hand is not moving


Got the same problem guys. i have one of the new electronic diving eco drives.
First time i managed to get it going again, by forcing all the hands to the top for diving mode, then back to normal, this action ´nudged´the minute hand back into motion, but a little later it stuck again at the same spot.
I guess mines going back to the factory, and i´m gonna b watchless for a few weeks :(
