Back again after long absence with a question


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone old and new. Having had 3 heart attacks I am slowly but surely getting better and feel up to the climb upstairs to the computer.

 

I do have a question though, I have a Tissot PRS 516. The watch is around 4 years old from memory and is on the original Renata battery. It keeps perfect (or near enough) time but......  The stop watch function doesn't work. I have the back off and the buttons seem to be moving the appropriate part in the movement, a 10212 V8. I can of course change the battery and see if that makes any difference. I am fairly sure,(though not positive) that I tried the stop watch function when I got the watch as you do and had it not worked it would have gone back to whence it came, too late now.

Anyone any ideas?

I'm afraid I can't help with the watch question, but I wanted to say, that after the ordeal(s) you must have been through congratulations that you are still "ticking".

Hope that things are improving and your heart is on a better footing now.

Hello.

It seems best practice to make sure you are on full power before fiddling with things. Try a battery change first.

I've had two attacks.. having a hobby like watches is a good thing. Welcome back to the community :thumbsup:

Welcome back Kev and good you are recovering

After 4 years the battery in your 516 is probably ready for a change, might be enough juice for the main hands but not be enough juice for the stopwatch
