    Omega f300hz

    Hi to all

    this may or may not seem a stupid question, which stops first on the f300hz, the fingers or the humming when a battery change might be needed.

    Never watched as battery ran flat. Just noticed loss of time.

    I have three f300s. Just tested the Constellation and when the crown is pulled out, both the hum and the second hand gradually slow to a stop in sync.

    I hope this helps.

    Wait,
    Do you have the case back off and there is a hum but no movement of the second hand? In this case you might have a stripped index wheel (very fine teeth) or broken pawl attached to the tuning fork.

    Hi
    so are you saying that if you pull the crown out to position No 1 that you can make the watch stop, with a good battery in ?

    Hi,

    I suppose I should have elaborated. All three watches have a date, the Consternation has day and date. All watches have crown positions where the first pulled out position does not arrest the circuit and the time is kept (second hand continues to turn, keeping time) but the date/ day may be set and the second (fully pulled out) position arrests the circuit thus the tuning fork progresses to cease vibrating and the second hand reflects this by slowly coming to a halt.

    Hope this helps.

    What is it you are concerned about or are witnessing?

    Hi

    I have just bought the f300hz, bought as a perfect running watch / imported, when I opened the well packed watch I noticed the sweep hand wasn't working and thus after a few minutes confirmed the watch wasn't working full stop, but I can still hear the humming, the watch has day / date and can be set/ changed as normal, I noticed that when the crown is pulled out to position 1 the second hand will move on a few seconds then stop, push the crown home and nothing.

    The seller says the battery may just need changing, but I have my doubts about that.

    Ah.. ok. Thanks.

    May have been running but in transit a heavy knock may have ? affected the pawl.
    May not have been running prior to shipping.
    Battery, if you hear a hum.. probably not that.

    I am in Australia. I sent one of my watches to Paul at Electric-watches.uk and when I get a chance, I’ll send the other two. He was excellent. I am by far not an expert on these watches. I would email Paul for his thoughts and then decide what you’ll do from there. Contact seller for refund or have a service from Paul.

    Good luck mate.
    Thay are wonderful and unique watches.
