  1. I just got this one and of course the crystal needs to be polished out, but the question is what battery did it take and how is it supposed to stay in place? Is there a battery holder missing? I can set a 39- negative down on it and press the back on carefully and it will run since the positive contacts the case, but surely that isn’t all there is to it. Has anyone else seen one like this? Steve There is a clip in ring inside the back cover that may be part of the answer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I did one of those a year or so ago, and swore never to do it again! I held the stem with pliers and unscrewed the crown. After pulling the movement out with the stem in, I was presented with a metal plate over the underside of the movement, plus some other complications to getting the battery out that I can’t fully remember. I finally got it replaced, but then couldn’t locate a new white nylon ring for the crystal. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  3. My worst nightmare keyless works fix is on an Accutron 2182 day date. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Pull the dial off and you will find the lever that falls off if you unscrew the screw too far. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  5. It probably loses enough power from the mainspring as hours go by to allow the drag to stop the hand. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. That is usually the second hand touching the crystal at that point,creating a little drag. It could also be touching the minute hand, but that would usually cause it to stop at whatever point they coincide. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Similar movement and same battery. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. We need to see the movement or for you to get the number off of it. If it has a black frame the number will be on the frame, otherwise it will be in tiny numbers on the plate. Most of them are from the 500 family and use a 371 battery. Very common battery for Ronda’s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  9. You were right! I stuck a single edge razor into it at the 9 o’clock position and it popped right off. It uses one of those rd nylon rings for the seal. Thanks. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Does the back unscrew by placing a typical 3 pin wrench into the rounded slots on the back? For the life of me I can’t get the back to turn at all. I know they allow water into the inside in order for the barometric pressure sensor to work, and I figure that it can cause corrosion between the back and the case threads. Any suggestions?

  11. You can find a lot of history with a search on lecoultre. Jaeger joined later. I saw a good basic article on them that was mainly regarding the Reverso models and how they came to be. It was published a couple of days ago. https://www.govbergwatches.com/blog/history-jaeger-le-coultre-reverso/ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. You can buy movements on eBay, but if I were you, I would scour the area with a magnet. It is gold plated steel, usually. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I figured it out. This is a new one on me. It is supposed to run backwards! I found a manual online and the retrograde model is supposed to have the chrono hand set at the 45 mark, and it runs CCW to the 15 mark then quickly reverses back to the 45 mark. There are even 0 to 30 marks in an inner dial ring, running from 45 to 15. Very odd to have a retrograde second hand. It still has an issue though, in that the hand sometimes falters and jerks back and forth then resumes its counting,but is then off time and has to have a hand reset done again.

  15. I just got a nice sport model Tissot with retrograde subdials and the ETA G15-26 6J movement. I put a new 394 battery in it, set all of the hands. When I click the chrono button, the chrono hand either jerks back and forth or runs backwards. I can reset it to 12 with no problems. Are there any repair suggestions other than buy a movement for it? Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
