SOURCE: I have a invicta bolt zeus and it stopped working.

If you suspect the battery try some spare batteries double checking with several known good to brand new one tests to cover your bases for consistency. It is a method of trial and error eliminating any possibility of a battery problem.

Sometimes there are power drain issues where cheep batteries even new can't handle. Trial and error illumination of a power drain issue checking with high power drain capable batteries. Information can sometimes be found in the manual in the specification.

From there you have the insight information it is not the battery in your further investigations describing the problem to a dealer or manufacture.

Other options of investigation include if you have the owners manual to check if there is any special settings to instigate you may need to know about dealers and the manufacture should know as well.

Do I reuse 2 batteries for my Umbro chrono watch?


Normally the Umbro Chronograph watches having analog and digital clock works on single battery. When u put the battery inside ur digital is working fine but some times for analog hands do not move due to the loose button which is used to move the watch hands. So pull it out again and insert it agin gently till tick sound comes and u r good to go.

Let me know if ur watch is working successfully:)

Coaster model 900723 grandfather clock doesn't keep time


Everybody should know that the coaster clocks discussed here run on batteries. The timing mechanisms, the chimes as well as the pendulum all are powered by a battery. Changing the speed of the pendulum is impossible because there is no adjustment. Besides, it wouldn't matter anyway. The pendulum has now affect on the clock's ability to keep accurate time. It is purely aesthetic. This is a pretty cool looking clock and even has weights, but those are also purely aesthetic and do not move the way a classic grandfather clock weight would move. The moments with these clocks are not designed to be worked on. These clocks are relatively inexpensive (approximately $300) but do add a nice look to your home. Grandfather clocks snobs would say though; this is not a true timepiece. They're right... Sorry._1513.jpg

Watch does not work after changing the battery


mcdevito75 here, You can try, double check the battery instalation in the watch, If all is good, try to pull out the stem and move the hands as if setting the time, then push stem back in. It"s also possible you have a weak or even dead battery, even though it was bought new.

I have a Westclox battery operated wall clock with chicken on face. The battery is new. The second hand tries to move but just "clicks" How can I fix this?


Sounds like it is just worn out.
Sometimes you can replace the generic clock works in these type of clocks. Go online and do a search for battery powered clock works, and see if you can match yours. They are removed quite easily after popping off the clock hands, and removing a nut under the hands that holds the clock works in the chicken.
Here's a link to a site that sells the clock movements... http://www.clockworks.com/

I have a police chronograph watch about a year old if that and the chronograph dials have reset themselves at random points does anyone know why and if so is there a fix? many thanks david


hi,
all you need to do is pull the centre bezel out (to where you adjust the time) and by pressing the top button the chronograph needle will move round. Once it is the correct place simply push the centre bezel back in.

Hope this helps.

Tail moves but not hands


Jenny, one of the batteries is for the tail alone.
It has nothing to do with the movement.
We know that battery is good, (because the tail is wagging).
The 1st thing I would be doing is checking the other battery (s).
If the batteries are good, becase you just got the clock, take it back under warranty.

How can I start a small Quartz clock?


The first thing to try would be to test the battery. If the battery is good the problem may be the mechanical works need to be started in motion. If it has swinging parts try to get them swinging. If it has hands set the time on the clock. Hold the the clock in your hand with the face towards you and rotate it clockwise a few times to get the gears moving. Sometimes just letting it sit upright for a day or so will be enough to let the clock start working. I hope this is helpful to you.

Wall clock not working


If you are sure the hands are not touching as they pass, perhaps the minute hand and hour hand are binding together at the hub. Try this: Gently pull on the minute hand by gripping its hub with the nails of your finger and thumb. It should slide forward a little (or come off). Also the same for the hour hand, to ensure it is not binding on the face of the dial.
I don't know the particular clock, but if it has a SECONDS hand, this is often the one that needs to be freed.
If all the hands are free, all should be good. If it has a seconds hand and the clock stops when this hand is going "uphill", try a fresh battery. If this doesn't fix it, remove the seconds hand and use the clock without it. Or you could try to counterbalance the hand by adding a little weight to the opposite side... this could work, but as it increases the mass of the hand also, it still might be a problem.
Another way might be to shorten the seconds hand..!
