To bypass my ranting....skip down to Guess4....its the watch im really concerned with fixing at the moment. Thanks
Ive had for 2 around 3 yrs. Its my 4th guess watch and probably last. Ive paid 100 to 150 for my guess watches. Im no watch professional but i just noticed these watches don't seem to last long. I guess i was attracted to guess because its a known brand I've always saw far as clothes. They have some nice looking watches in my past price range. But looking at the fact i have 6 watches that are all 3 to 12 years old and its the 4 guess out of service as opposed to the 2 no names $20 watches.....
1 guess was scrapped after i guess too much water....i take the blame.
Guess2 out of service because 4 or 5 of the chrome looking minute marks fell out and look bad.
Guess3 i no longer like because it looks like a movado knock off....tho i originally bought because it looked like a movado....but being a little older wearing it i feel a little like im wearing a fake...let me know if im wrong.....regardless it functions so i bought a battery and put the movado look a like missing shiny 3 o'clock mark back in service. Not to mention it started fogging up a lot years ago....i guess something isn't sealed off because washing my hands or it being damp outside fogs it sometimes.
On to Guess4 my favorite of all my current watches. Its been out of action for over a year. Because its the nicest i have in my opinion i recently wore despite the 2nd hand movement and lack of battery.....
Basically the minutes hand moves whenever my wrist is active (if i raise arm, move wrist, shake wrist/hand, etc...) almost like the 2nd hand is loose. Looking at it....it seems to be sort of leaning downward rather than being leveled like normal hands...sorry for my description i cant think of another way to describe and i dont know proper names for parts.
Basically due to my current financial situation i have to make use with my current watch inventory for now. Id really like this watch to function properly. I changed the battery and the hand still moves all over the place. It also does it with no battery installed. If my hand doesnt make any strong movement its fine. Any idea of the cause, is the fix complicated for diy? My searching gets a bunch of results related to the 2nd hand skipping....i didnt find anything on it moving with a simple wrist turn. Thanks
