Hello i found this forum doing a google search. I am hoping people on this forum can help me.
I ordered this invicta marvel punisher watch model number 35165 direct from invicta and was delivered to my house august 11th of this year.
A week ago i noticed the watch stopped telling time, so no big deal i will put in a new battery. I did not have the tool to open the watch so i ordered that.
I bought and put in a new energizer battery, SR927SW or 395/399.
The issue remain the same, so i tried another battery and the handle that holds the battery in place broke off.
I was able to use some tape to hold the 3rd battery in place but still same result.
The following day i went to a battey shop and bought 3 of the 399/SR927SW renata batteries since they are better quality.
My thought was the regular energizer batteries might be duds, since i bought them from a hardware store.
I put the new renata battery in and same result. The hour and minute hand will not move by themselves.
The long hand chrongraph will move and stop and start no issues. The gage directly below the punisher skull will move when the chrongraph does a complete cycle.
The day of week and calendar number will move manually if i adjust them, so will the hour and minute hands.
What will not move on its own are the gage on the right side in the punisher skulls eye which is the seconds dial/gage.
Which i believe is stopping the hour and minute hands from not moving/working.
I am an honest person so i know that since i broke the battery holder if i send it into invicta they will send it back or charge me the full cost of repair.
I am hoping the repair will not be as bad as i think it will be, but earlier today i took it to a watch repair shop and was told its going to cost me a couple hundred dollars to repair.
I think issue is the gear that moves the seconds, and the watch is a RONDA CALIBER Z60 movement.
I have also tried recalibrating the watch a dozen times to no sucess.
I can post a video clips of the watch running if needed.
