    Hi,
    I have just received an Omega Moonswatch mission to the moon and noticed the 1/10 timer function isn't working or reseting??
    Anyone experienced this? What can be done?
    Cheers Russell.

    I haven’t experienced this — both my MoonSwatches function properly without issue. If I were you, I’d go back to Swatch and have it replaced under warranty.

    The movement in these is not repairable, so the only option is replacement.

    I am curious if these watches use some form of the ETA G10.xxx movement.

    It is only my opinion but I am saddened to hear that they (Swatch Group) would attach Omega's name to a (S)watch with a non serviceable movement.

    Hi Archer,
    The 1/10th sec hand for some reason makes it's way around nearly a full revolution over say a 24hr period?? I haven't actually timed it.
    Cheers Russell.

    Think it’s been determined that the watch can’t even be opened. I get that it’s popular, people like it, good on Swatch (and omega). But it’s not exactly the kind of watch you keep for decades or generations. There’s lot of mechanicals that aren’t worth servicing, or can’t be serviced as well

    Most Quartz movements are not serviceable from what I've gathered.

    My early (maybe first?) generation Citizen Eco-Drive chronograph required the movement to be taken apart just to get to the battery. While trying to replace the cell myself I lost one of the handful of metal gears inside (possibly only 3 in total). The cell was sandwiched between the 2 PCB layers and that's also what is holding most of the gears (many plastic ones) in place.
