Question about Tag Heuer Link WJF2112.BA0570 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Self winding does not work

I have had the watch for approximately 18 months. Within the first few months it kept stopping even though I wear it everyday. I sent it back and they completed maintenance - movement control - regulating spring bars and all gaskets replaced. Within a couple of months it stopped again. I sent it back and this time they informed me it stopped due to magnetic forces and they recalibrated it. After a few weeks it once again it stopped. It works okay when I wind it up but after about a week it stops. A friend also has a self winding Tag and has no problems with it. Really the only time I take it off is to go to bed. I do not work near x-ray machines or in a hospital so the magnteic interuption issue seems bizzare.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

    If ur on a computer all day and drive to and from wk the watch will not wind so as several days go by doing the same routing your watch will stop and start on you there is nothing wrong with your watch it's your life style Your watch will only wind you walk and swing your arm. U need a watch winder. Sometimes on the watch winder for one night it still might not get a full wind because it's winding is completed. So in the morning before u put it on unscrew you crown and when it pops out on its own your in winding mode don't pull on the stem just turn the crown toward the stem about 30 times. Don't worry you can't overwind an automatic watch. Push your crown back in and screw it down finger tight We're it and see how the day goes you should get a couple of days out of it before it completely unwinds. If your automatic is chrono it will run out faster it the chrono is running at the same time

Could be its just not a good quality watch, you didn't state the make. if its an invicta, then tbh, its to be expected they can be very hit and miss. You can buy demagnetizer for about $10, £6-7. Things like speakers, computer monitors or strong electrical field can magnetize a watch making them perform very inconsistently.

Your watch is a automatic. All automatics need to wind-up before being worn at first , or if not worn all the time. Automatics will work with-out being wound ,but will not keep time. Wind your watch at least 50 turns (using the crown) or shake about 150 times , and then try it . Automatics need that back-up power to insure it's accuracy.

SOURCE: Is there a battery in my tag hueer professionial

The model number quoted does not match those I found on the web site (three letters and our numbers), so I couldn't identify your watch.

If you go the the Tag web site "tagheuer.com" and examine the models shown, you should be able to identify your watch and check its details.

Watch stops after wearing for a few hours


Self winding watches need motion ( wrist twist) without they can stop. Sometimes just shake your wrist for a few seconds. I purchased a winder box for times I don't wear. ( Amazon)!
it is belt driven winder, rotates watch 5 minutes every hour.

My automatic omega watch stops after 20-24 hours eventhough i am promised it should last for 48hours if worn continuously for 48 hours.


Almost all automatic wristwatches made today have an 18-24 hour "power reserve" when fully wound. A 24 hour reserve is actually very, very good. I can't think of a modern self-winding wristwatch that has a 48-hour power reserve because that would require a super-long or much larger mainspring than would fit in a modern watch movement / case. There may be some hand-crafted or super-premium watches that can do this, but only a very select few.
Manual wind railroad pocket watches, which were some of the finest and most accurate mechanical watch movements ever made, generally had a 40-hour power reserve. That extra capacity was created by using a large mainspring to store the extra energy. These mainsprings could be used because of the much larger size of these watches, compared to modern wristwatches.
If you are concerned about keeping your watch ticking, even when you're not wearing it, you might want to look at a "watch winder"--basically, a small watch case that rotates the watch for you, keeping the automatic winding rotor moving and the watch ticking. In addition, sitting at a computer all day will wind your watch much less than walking and otherwise moving around. Even though you're wearing your watch, if you're not moving, you're not winding it.

MY INVICTA IS AN AUTOMATIC WATCH. I'VE TURNED THE CROWN SEVERAL TIMES BUT WITHIN MINUTES THE SECOND HAND STOPS


If hand winding does not work then try waving it gently from side to side for 100-200 times (yes! that is what some makers recommend).

Since self winding watches thrive on use, it is best to wear it daily to keep it functioning.

I just got the watch as a gift on x-mas it stopped working yesretday while I was wearing it mens giovanni self winding I pushed the second hand button A and nothing I didn't drop it or get it wet or...


Having read the limited instructions for this watch, it does not seem as though there are many options available!

If you haven't already done so, try pressing A again.

If nothing happens, press B

It could be that the watch has simply stopped because it needs re-winding (it depends on how long it had been running when you got it.

To wind the watch swing it gently from side to side for a few minutes. ( some makers say swing it 200-300 times!).

If you still have no joy, then contact the makers help line; go to http://www.raymond-weil.com/EN/Swiss-Watch-Company/After-Sale-Service.html to find your nearest service center.

I bought it new and then a few weeks later the battery seemed to stop. I did not wear it often. I heard some watches do not use battery and function with the movement of one's arm. Is this the case for...


If the watch is a self winding type, then it generally says "automatic" on the face. These will run for about 2-3 days if they are not worn, as the self winding action only works when the user is moving).

Battery driven watches should run for at least a year before needing a replacement, so if it has stopped already, it could be self winding or manually wound type. Some self winding watches can be manually wound so you could try this to see if it starts.

Omega constellation self winding watch stops


Omega claim that your watch will run for 40 or more hours, so stopping overnight should not happen. I doubt if you need to be particularly active to wind up the watch, otherwise this would make the problem quite common. My one experience of owning an automatic did not raise this sort of problem.

Discuss your problem with your supplier and describe your use. As you correctly say, having to hand wind i defeats the point of buying an autoamtic. (It could be that you have been sold two duff watches, however unlikely this may seem, it could happen).

Watch winding is not holding


Two words: Wind it! When any self-winding (automatic) watch runs down from not wearing it you have to manually wind it to get it going again. Once you've done that the movement of your wrist will cause the self-winding rotor mechanism to keep it running as long as you are reasonably active and wear it everyday. Just wind it about 40 turns and you'll be good to go. Oris is a great watch company and you should enjoy it for many years.

If it's a quartz watch, replace the battery. If it's a mechanical watch, even a "self-winding" model, wind it manually - unless you're very active it needs a manual winding if you don't wear it all the time. If it's more than a few years old it may need cleaning by a watchmaker.

Juts got the watch, wound it, worked then stoped, wound dead


These watches are self winding (mechanical spring), so need to be worn (or gently oscillated) to wind them up.

The catalogue for this watch says it should run for 72 hours when fully wound.

Depending on when the watch was made, it could be that it needs a clean.

Try wearing it for a few days to see if it keeps going.

Keeping 2008 breitling cockpit watch running


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.
