    My Gearbox second hand sweeps in five second intervals now: I'm hoping it's just the battery. Can somebody reassure me about this please?

    A lot of movements have battery low indicators like this. They start to move differently to alert you. If it's still keeping time I would bet it's a battery warning.

    Rust is correct, that sounds like a low battery indicator.

    However, the manual for the Gearbox makes no mention of having this feature; can't confirm 100%.

    It does appear to be keeping time, so I'm hoping Rustpot is correct. I'll contact Oakley UK to see if I can find out the cost for a new battery and to put the 'gears in motion'.

    Thank you for responding.
