ok so i have this speedway that i got earlier this year from an online seller

it runs fine in the box BUT once worn -the seconds hand somehow stops and next thing you know it aint working -- bump it alittle and set it down off the wrist and it starts working again -just fine when it's off the wrist?????

so do i need to change the battery on this little dude or is it worse??

all input appreciated

Go ahead and change the battery.

See what happens.

They do some strange things when the battery gets low.

If that doesn't help the it's probably something that a watchmaker needs to look at.

Or let someone else try wearing it. Maybe it just doesn't like you. :lol

Me too. Battery is a cheap test.

I just put one in my Croton Coin and it didn't help so I packed it up and I will send it out on Monday to Croton. Second time since November 29th 2009.

I doubt that it's the battery based upon what you wrote. The erratic nature of a dying battery should be somewhat uniform whether it's on the wrist or in a box.

I guess that changing the battery is a necessary step, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not a battery issue.

Good luck!
