  1. Is this a good way to clean a Quartz movement? Cleaning the a watch movement Watches accumulate over time dust and small metal debris inside the movement. All watches have a friction fit to allow you to change the time while the movement is running. If there is oil on that friction fit then the movement will not be able to drive the watch hands any more properly. The friction fit will slip and the time will be off. A quartz watch that is off by several minutes per week has usually mechanical problems, not eclectic problems. Quartz movements are more simple in their mechanical design. They have very few cog wheels and it's easy to get to them. This open design does often allow you to wash the movement in lighter fluid without taking it apart. Lighter fluid to clean watch movments. To clean a quartz watch you just take the movement out of the case, dip it in a small bowl with lighter fluid and move it a bit left and right to allow for the flow of lighter fluid through the movement. This will wash old oil, debris and dust out of the movement and you will find small particles at the bottom of the bowl. I have installed a new battery just a few month ago and now the watch needs again a new one If you are sure that the battery is was of good quality then this is probably a sign of oil in the movement getting old and sticky. The friction in the movement has increased. An easy way to fix this is to first apply a bit of very thin Moebius quartz oil. After that you wait a few days (watch running) until the oil got into all the pivot holes where it dissolved the old and sticky oil. Finally you wash the excess oil away with lighter fluid. Just wash the entire movement in lighter fluid. Traces of oil will remain in the movement and that is enough. You don't need to take the movement apart for this procedure.
  2. Have anyone used or heard of the Quartz watch analyzer 118 by Le Arsi?

  8. I got this swatch irony watch ...the watch runs fine until yesterday I was turning to the correct time and low and behold the hour hand stop turning. This watch donot suppose to be fixed...After looking at several videos on you tube..... I was able to remove the bezel, winder , and crystal........ where the calendar works swatch put some type of glue on the screws to keep from removing the plate......... in one of videos this guy used a heat gun........I guess the only solution is to throw away the movement............ I can't seem to locate : movement model number: G15 xxx, three hands, date at the 4:00 position............(help)!
  9. I own this swatch irony , was winding the correct date on this Watch and it stop working............. there are several possible solutions to fix this problem but I do not know how to get the bezel off.............. researching the problem I found that swatch watches are not intended to fix..........I did not know if this is true or not , so I decided to ask the professionals about this................ can a swatch irony be fixed and how?
  10. Yes, I forgot to include GL10 took the place of 6L12 Miyota movement."..... lesson learn use the camera for pics..".....
  11. Hello I dis assemble a GL10 movement with the date, three hands forgot how to put the calendar mechanism back together.......purchasing this movement is the best thing to do, I was just practicing , all the components are basically plastic, except for the center wheel........ Are there any videos out there on quartz movements.."..... the lower price range..........
  12. The model number is B873M, the battery capacitor is 295 5600, which goes with the model number for this watch. On the battery case is MT 920, this is the same style battery that I use in my Skyhawk........it works in the Skyhawk, but not in the Pro diver?
