Quartz chronograph broken

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

Have a Carrera calibre 16 quartz chronograph  and wondering if anybody with higher and better knowledge can help. 

Watch was running completely fine in the evening, picked it up in the morning and it was dead. 

Presumed it was a dead battery or movement - as the seconds dial isn't moving at all, however the chronograph still works? So im presuming the battery is fine and its a movement issue? Watch has been on a shelf with a microwave below it which was used for around 20 mins the other day - so maybe could be magnitized? 

 

Any help is appreciated as I'm completely clueless on this type of stuff! Cheers

Change the battery, quartz are known for doing weird stuff when the battery is nearly flat
