Fixing a Timex Electric (Dynabeat) Watch (battery) from the 1970's.....with battery will run only 3 to 5 seconds once shook. Battery compartment is clean & sanded contacts. I pulled crown / stem out & sets & moves hands (....when pushed in I can shake/rotate watch & will run for 3 to 5 seconds , ...... with stem/ crown pulled out , will not run....) I believe this is normal......The watch insides look very clean , no corrosion nor battery leakage.... Can any members give me some information on what direction I should take on this problem? I believe this is a battery conectivity within watch movement.....are there any diagrams showing the inside of the movement & how the movement works.....battery & mechanical. Thank you in advance for your help.....Dan
i won this thing yesterday on fleabay. i'll post a link to it below as it's an interesting read. it seems this particular watch was acquired from a chicago store (who acquired it back in the seventies) and was never sold. so, it is NOS. i'm a bit anxious to get it. i clicked on one of the links and it went to a website called http://electric-watches.co.uk/. i clicked on it and found that this fellow has a load of these watches. but in all of the pics, none of his watches has a red arrow on the dial. gee, maybe mine will be a one in a million. it's quite interesting in that these watches are basically more of a hybrid mechanical/electric. linky -> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Newport-R-GSell-Co-Kal-26-German-Ruhla-as-Chronoflex-Champion-or-Services-Name-/371497701774?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=FjZngieG4wFMPIkNo25NvyIrPA4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc hopefully that link will work. i'll post some pictures and give a review once it arrives.
