    Hamilton Flight Timer stuck in EOL mode

    So, the other day my Flight Timer started ticking only once every five seconds, so I took it for a battery change. After the change, from what is assumed to be a legit place, they said they noticed that it was still ticking only once every five seconds.

    Any ideas? No warranty on the watch, just so you know.

    How did it get so late so soon?

    I don't know much about the watch or movement but I once had a perpetual calendar Seiko that did something similar after a battery change until the calendar was reset. Maybe there is something that needs to be reset?

    I looked through the manual, but I couldn't find anything about a reset. I might have to email Hamilton and do that dance. I hate dealing with watch companies. It's like talking to tech support at work, but instead of telling you to restart your computer, they tell you to take it to an authorized service center.

    Putting on my fortune teller's hat... I'm getting a feeling.... something coming in.... it's a response.... a response from Hambone...no, Ham-n-eggs... no... Hamilton! Yes! A response from Hamilton.... and it's saying.... quartz is bad?!?.... no, that's not it.... it's saying that you can fix something... fix your wallet.... nope.... fix your women?!?... no, that can't be right.... fix yourrrrr.....watch!... That's it! I've got it... It's all clear now....

    It's a response coming from Hamilton that you can fix your watch by TAKING IT TO AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER!!

    They will probably want you to send it in (and lecture you for not using them in the first place). My advice would be to figure out what eta module you have and then find the manual for it. It's likely that a circuit reset is needed.

    It's an ETA E20.373, according to Hamilton's site.

    Did you try taking out the battery and putting it back again? Try to force reboot the thing before sending it back to Hamilton.

    It may sound a bit daft Raza but are the shop 100% sure that the battery they put in is good?

    Hamilton gave me a number I can call to talk about the issue and see if they can help me out. I'll give that a shot tomorrow. Otherwise, they recommended I send it to an authorized service center....
