Hi folks, I was wondering if anyone knows how to remove a watch face off an Emporio Armani AR-2432. I was able to remove the back case, stem, and push pins but to my shock and horror, found out that the watch face was bigger than the case so I can't pull it from the back. The only thing I can think of is to pop open the front bezel by sticking a stanley knife or razor between the bezel and case. However, before I do that and wreck the watch, I thought it might be best to check with the pros. Reason why I need to get to the front face is to re-position the two chronograph arms that's come loose and jangling around the crystal area. I've attached pictures on how it looks and where I want to pop it open If anyone can offer a tip or two please let me know. Thank you in advance. Jesse House of George
Got quite a peculiar one at the moment, and it's something that I've never personally encountered before. The clients watch is an Armani AR5905; he thought he needed a new battery and so here I am, Upon taking the case-back off and placing a new battery in, I heard the circuit do the all so familiar whirring noise like it was springing back to life, however when I flipped it over it wasn't ticking. So I pulled the battery out and again put it back in, but what I noticed was that the whirring noise was only happening when the battery was halfway seated and thus not making full contact, and as soon as the battery was fully seated everything ceased. This time I put the battery in halfway and then flipped over the watch to see it working, and to my surprise the seconds sub-dial at the 6 position was spinning around wildly. However again stopped when the battery was fully inserted. Anybody have any ideas as to what is going on? I could upload a video if that would help.
Hi all, I recently acquired a very busted up AR1798 with all the hands unseated. Initially I assumed that the repair would be as simple as popping off the back of the case, flipping the dial out and reseating the hands. However, much to my dismay it appears that the dial is slightly larger than the opening and cannot be pulled out the back of the watch. I then looked towards the bezel and hoped that popping that off would grant me access to the front of the dial but alas that too proved futile. Though the bezel did indeed come off, there still appears to be no way of prying off the front of the watch - looks like the bezel was just glued on for decoration... Any ideas before I throw this into a draw and forget about it? Cheers!

Hi, I am new to this forum, so if I have posted in the incorrect section my apologies and please feel free to direct me elsewhere.. I am looking for a local reputable watch repair service (independant or national business), I live in Halifax, West Yorkshire UK. I have two watches that I am looking for help with: 1) Fossil watch (similar in appearance to this) the pin has snapped and the small spring section which goes watch body is still in place. I believe it may need to be drilled out? Other wise the strap and watch is in perfect working order. 2) Emporio Armani watch (similar in appearance to this) I have had the watch sometime and I now need a new link adding back in, but I am not able to find the link. Can new links be obtained, or must the strap be replaced? (The strap looks the same as this). Thank you in advance. Gareth
