  1. Looking for advice. Daughter (7) bought me a pocket watch from a second hand store. The hunter case crown is missing a cap to open the front. It appears to be threaded. Essinger seems to have the right replacement part. I can't figure out how to get the stem and crown out. I think this is an old Belle Suisse 8810. Help? Also I know it is posted to wrong forum but this was the only non grayed out option.
  2. I have managed to snap my winding stem whilst cleaning, I cannot seem to identify the correct stem, could anyone please help?
  3. Hi. Aftet many hours trying to fit a seagull st36 to a hamilton kahki case I think I'm done. First recieved movement and put all parts together with a pleasef smile on my face. Then the second hand stopped.... Aftet advice i took parts apart fiddled with second hand and rebuilt parts. This time the stem just doesn't engage properly and slips in and out easily. Movement is fine it seems but stem just doesn't want to play. It did when first assembled. So i am figuring i just want it working and want to send it off to someine far more experienced than I....any sugestions?
  4. Hello Everyone. I need some help with repairing my Emporio Armani ar-1922. I've watched some videos on YouTube but none of them resemble the movement of this particular watch. My first problem is removing the stem/crown. I cannot see anything which looks like it will release the stem and I don't want to poke around inside it any more for fear of creating any damage. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
  5. Hello, I have a j810 movement that needs a stem and crown. Can’t find part numbers. Citizen eco-drive j810-s088232.
  6. Hey, so I have a question. I've got an Invicta dive watch with a NH35A movement here that whenever I unthread the stem and crown as it is unthreading the date starts changing. Once its unthreaded I can change it to the 1, 2 and 3 positions and set and wind it accordingly. How can I fix this and what is causing this? Yours truly, Josh
  7. Good afternoon everyone. I have finally taken apart my wife's grandfathers Timex watch, which has a 24 movement. I have several questions: 1. The stem is really sloppy, what can cause that? 2. What is the best way to clean this movement. I do not have a machine so it will be done manually. 3. Where can I get a crystal? Is there a place to buy them if I measure it? Thank you for all of your help.
  8. Is there a proper way to remove a stem from a DG3804B so as not to booger the keyless works?. I have removed movements before, replaced crystals and replaced hands and never had an issue with stems until now. I was building my first GMT and was not able to get stem back in! I had to rebuild the keyless works a real pain. I'm hesitant to try to remove stem again. I think it should be in the 'hand setting' position and perhaps ever so gently press on the release until it just lets go. I'm guessing to much pressure allows the winding pinion to slide out of place. Any advise perha
  9. Hello I'm starting to service a vintage zenith with 2572PC movement in it. First problem is I can't seem to find a way to release the winder. This apperas to be the simplest type of relese system as a push down bolt is easily spotted. The point is it just doesn't release and this is where doubts come in... Am I missing something? In the attached image I'm trying to show what is unexpected to my unexperienced eyes. TIA Giuseppe
  10. hi guys I have the 8f56-0090 watch and it has broken crown from stem, so I need a stem, a crown and a battery. Also I need advise how to make dial stable on movement because its moving apart from the movement. Or if it cant be fixed suggest me another mechanism with dial and all staff to fit into this caliber. thank u
  11. Hello there watch fix fans. Here's (I hope) an interesting one for you. I have this beautiful small ladies 'Fero Feldmann' Swiss-made watch - it came in a bag of "used and to be repaired" watches. From what I can see, the mechanism seems in very good working order. Just a slight shake and it goes and goes. There is no strap, but that is not the issue here. The problem is the stem and/or crown. As you can see, there is definitely no crown. But I am wondering about the stem. The watch does have its case and edoes have, as you can see, a hole where the stem and/or crown will/s
  12. Hello all, I have a watch I would like to fix my self. It's made by TAWATEC, who is no longer in business. It's very similar to a Luminox and used TGS for lume. I will provide information to the best of my ability. Here is a link to some information about it. Here are a few pictures of the watch. I have had the watch since May of 2011. I had the battery replaced in Feb 2015 by a local shop. Less than a year later, I noticed that after taking a shower there was condensation under the crystal. I pulled the crown and left it sit to air out. After about
  13. Whilst trying to resolve a balance staff issue I came across this download in Cousins. It is by Ronda and after the movement info it goes on to list details of balance staffs and stems based on their stock lists. These give good info on balance staff and stem dimensions etc for many makes and calibers. It goes back to 1965 so useful for that old watch you may be working on. Once you get the hand of the way it all works it is easy to cross reference for a replacement item if an original is not available. Hope it can help. https://www.cousinsuk.com/document/search?SearchString=ronda
  14. Hello everyone am new to this thanks for the great forum , i have an IWC watch with 630/1 movement after removing the stem from the movement the watch quit working I tried to change the battery but didn’t help so please guys if anyone knows what’s going on with it help me out please . thanks in advance.
  15. Dissambled my Pobeda/Raketa 2603 movement. Looks like someone blasted it with WD-40? Oil everywhere and on everything. I cleaned it, re-oiled (only gave it one shot of WD-40) just kidding. The stem is bent right at the crown (see pictures). The stem and crown are functional and I an reluctant to try to either straighten the stem or remove the crown. I don't know if the crown is pressed into the stem or screwed in--can't tell by looking. I know that Cousins UK lists a replacement stem but they have no picture of it. Does anyone know how the crown is removed? Can I try to straight
  16. Hi everyone, I own a Victorinox which has a lose hand, it got deatached somehow, I think because of a small fall. Foyself a tool for opening the back of the case (I am really noob at this) but that is as far as I could go since I dont see any of the deataching levers shown in most of the tutorials on the internet. I attached images of the watch so you can point me which screw/lever/pin/whatever should be moved in order to remove the crown. If it is something very critical that could damage the clock I will take it to a specialized place, but I really would like to do it myself
  17. My engagement watch was a Briel, which turns out to have a 0S60 Miyota movement. I paid goldsmiths to replace the battery, boy what a mistake. When I collected it the crown came off in my hand. Goldsmith said they can't repair!!! They paid me £250. So this is when I did some research and took the back off the watch. I believe the stem is still in the watch. But I think I can repair by replacing the stem and crown. I still have the crown. Could some one advise what stem I need and how can I attach the crown, doesn't appear to have a thread but I think it should have. I can get mo
  18. I've just picked up an H801-6008 that is quite a cool and I'm trying to get it all going. The digital module seems to work fine (although the pushers seem to be full of DNA as does the rotating bezel). But the analogue section seems to be troubled as I couldn't get the hands to move after pulling the crown out to position 1. Dropped the movement out and the crown/stem joining seems to be broken. I can hold the stem still between my fingers and rotate the crown over and over in either direction. I can't seem to unscrew the crown from the stem either, and the crown appears to press down the stem
  19. Cheers mates!! Need to replace the stem on a ETA 2872 movment. Tried yesterday to screw the stem out of the crown, but it did not move a mm, dared not to take to hard on... Is this a usual thread screw in stem?? not links thread or somthing? Or just stuck after 40 years...? A good day to you all....
  20. Hi, I have a watch with ETA 2836 movement (17 jewels, day/date indicator). The crown does not go back to the 1st position, only 2 (adjust day/date) and 3 (adjust hands). From the third crown position, when turning the crown, in certain positions the whole stem comes out. I have a strong suspicion that I will have to have it serviced, unless you can advice me what might cause the problem and there is an easy fix for that. (I have found this video - but this is slightly different problem depicted (unable to move the crown to 3rd position (hands adjustment ))
  21. I am looking for a stem/crown for a Miyota quartz movement (see attached). Why does Miyota seldom write the movement's part number on the movement? Can anyone help? It goes inside a cheap Nelsonic LAX 766 watch.
  22. Hi I'm trying to solve an annoying puzzle: I have a fully functional seiko 6139A movement which I disassembled for cleaning and oiling. I placed all parts of the keyless and made sure that the stem is functioning and that it is secured by the setting lever. Nevertheless, once I reassemble the rest of the "dial side" parts, I cannot secure the stem back in again. It seems to me like the setting lever isn't pressed against the stem by the setting lever "plate", but for a reason I cannot tell. Do you have any suggestion? THANKS !
  23. Apologies if this has been asked before. What is the best way to separate a stem from a crown? The stem isnt rusted or showing any type of damage but it will not unscrew from the crown. i have tried soaking it in acetone to break any adhesive to no avail. Thanks
  24. I just serviced a 2804-2 which had the problem that when I wound the watch every once in awhile it "slipped". After some advice from a watchmaker it seemed it was a problem with the winding pinion (clutch) and the sliding pinion - their teeth were worn. So I changed them with a set from a 2842 (from a swatch auto). Under the 15x loupe they seemed identical. Also, it solved the problem, there is no more slippage. I presented the above because I want to ask your opinion for the problem that I have now: When I wind the watch the crown turns quite hard IMO. It happens in both directions (
  25. Hi everyone. A bit of a puzzle. I know there's probably a straightforward answer to this... I have a Victorinox Swiss Army Officer's 1884 - 24709. I need to understand... How do I waterproof when the crown is pushed in? It appears to have a flush post crown which the stem screws directly into. However the case tube is also flush with the case. The stem has some wiggle in it when attached as if something is missing. However looking from the inside there doesn't appear to be any evidence of a gasket. Has anyone seen this type of setup, or know what may be amiss? I would prefer t
