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?

I have one in my drawer, that a friend gave me not working and which is waiting since a few months.
I'll try to make it work so I can give you an opinion.

Swatch branď laser seals some lines of thier product, Generally using odd calib mechanical movements in such lines, for which  producing spare parts defeats the original idea.

 If you can get your hands on two or more of such non runing watches, you got your own spare parts inventory and can repair. Providing you like this idea and decide to give a try,  look into polymer cases as they are easier to cut through to get the mivements out.and best to house your reconditioned movement in SS cases.

Cheap Asian made swiss watches for life.:lol:

Not to hijack this thread but I've looked at several Swatch models with mechanical and quartz  movements and yes, they are indeed designed to be "disposable". Either by being sealed in such a way that the watch is destroyed or damaged during disassembly or by not producing spares. What in the world could the Swiss be thinking? In today's world, sustainability is a real issue, not just political rhetoric. I'm undecided if they are being stupidly arrogant or arrogantly stupid about this matter. I wonder if the buying public truly understands that these watches are disposable when plunking down their money?

    • Hello, I'm dean I'm 24 from the UK and have a massive interest in watches since I was about 12, I am currently a hgv truck driver and play around repairing and selling watches in my spare time (while paying a mortgage and looking after 4 children)!.   My dream is do watch repair as a full time job, and I one day will have my own little shop where I can repair watches and sell them as well, but am a very long way from achieveing that dream!, anyone else have the same dream?    Does anyone know of some good books or online courses to help me along the way with understanding a bit more about repairs?  Thanks!! 
    • Thanks buddy its been the hardest thing ever but i know this is my calling one day. Its only after my dads passing i have realised how gifted my dad really  was so many of he's mates from the watch trade told me he was the one watch repairer who could do any job which was put his way i remember him servicing 6 highend swiss watches back to back for a client he had never worked on these watch before modern automatic movements but this did not put him off, i told him return them undone as the cost of these watches was eye watering he said stuff this im gona do them 8 days later all done so my dad says hey son them watches gave me a few more extra white hairs but iv cracked it bring me more of them i loved the challange.
    • @jdm thanks for the link. Interesting reading, I shall have to dig a little deeper and see if I can find something on how it works. 
    • Many people use brass or nickel tweezers for pretty much all work except where finer or more specialized tweezers are necessary. Most professionals I know use brass/nickel for majority of their work. Not only are they less prone to mark parts, they are very easy and quick to dress, and being slightly soft compared to steel, they tend to hold parts better without them flying away.
    • Hi andy! Thanks for the info mate! I’ll look more into it now! Cheers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
