Whatever is wrong with it, you should be able to have it fixed under warranty (provided it has not been mistreated).

My CK 2247107 watch is one year old now, Suddenly the watch stopped running, Surely cannot be the battery. Do i need to change any mode. I tried setting different modes on the pushbutton to reset the...


mcdevito75 here, One year old, most likely the factory Battery and at 1 year old the battery is old, who knows how long the battery was in the watch before you bought it 1 year ago?? The battery is the first suspect. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for a new battery first.

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.

My Lady Ambassador watch stops every night between 11:45 and midnight (I do not sleep with it on.) In the morning, I reset it and it runs fine - until night time. The watch is less than a year old.


Does your watch have a date change?

The date usually changes about this time and it could be this that is stopping it working. Having it serviced could solve the problem, it it hasn't had any attention for a long time.

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 watch is 7 years old. it loses time. stops working. i put it in the sun a minimum of 24 hours a month. what is wrong? it is a ladies eco drive, does not have perpetual calendar.


After 7 years the capacitor is probably bad and wont hold the charge! Perfectly normal! :-) You need to take it to a reputable watch repair business and have them replace the capacitor. You can also send it directly to Citizen but they might be a little more expensive. Our business charges $45...that includes labor and it comes with a 1 year warranty. Just to give you an idea of what you might expect to pay. Could be more...could be less!

When we have a Citizen that needs repair beyond our capability we send to Torrance, CA location! :-)

Good luck!

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.

Watch stopped running when not worn for days. turned crown 20 times per Raymond Weil manual, did not work.


Make sure you are turning the crown clockwise and stop winding when you feel the tension increase. Also, try wearing it for a day even if it is not runninr; the motion may be enough to get it going if it is an automatic.
There may be something more wrong with your watch.
If the RW is less than 2 years old you should be covered, they have one of the best warranties in the business.
If it needs repair and is older than 2 years, I would still send it to the RW repair center in NY to see what they can do.

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.

Carrera automatic. stops with 8 hours of non wearing


Hi

I hate to be blunt be if it stops after 8 hours of wear, it may need a service! Most watches (particularly automatics which winds constitantly, when being worn).

Take it to your local watchmaker for a assessment? If it's less then 2 years old take it back to your place of purchase with reciepts as most swatch group (rado, longines, and tag etc) have a 2 year international g/t (that what we have here in australia and way, please consult your warranty card for verification!)
