    Unhappy Watch losing time apparently only when worn?

    I received a Quartz Movement Marc Jacobs watch for Christmas, and it seems to be faulty. I wore this watch to a NYE party, and I noticed that the time was way off. I reset it to the right time, and then it lost 5 minutes in the space of 2 hours. At first I thought it was the battery, but then I reset the time again and left it in the box for over 24 hours, and it didn't lose any time. So now I'm wondering, could it possibly be because of excessive movement or something like that? There was a lot of dancing at the NYE party. What could be the problem with this watch?

    Excessive movement ? I doubt it.
    maybe the battery is fault or not placed correctly. Most batteries are kept in place by a holder. Maybe ther is so ething wrong with the holder. Anyway, you have to have a watchmaker look at it or try to get a replacement.
    Kind regards

    You shouldn't really have too many problems with a quartz movement so perhaps if the watch is still under warranty you could return it. If it was brand new it shouldn't have had a problem with the battery, only if it had run out.
