Greetings from the Bay Area!

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I've enjoyed taking things apart ever since I was a kid. As an adult, I hope that I'll be able to put them back together properly! :biggrin:

I own several watches and want to learn to do basic maintenance on my own, whenever possible. I hope my questions won't seem too basic.

Jon

Hi welcome to the forum.  This is one for JerseyMo the Timex king.  I Think its just a clip on to secure the coin cell

I tried to lift/release it but couldn't make it work, and I don't want to risk using too much force. 

I'll message JerseyMo. Thanks!

@AlamedaMike Yes, the SF one. Didn't mean to sound Silicon-centric. :lol:

Also noteworthy, @JerseyMo helped me figure out the battery clip in my Timex. Now I'm shopping for a new strap to refresh the look. 

As an aside, do you folks change out the rubber gaskets in your watches? If so, how often? The one in my Timex looked fine and it's less than 10 years old.

    • I knew that Ronda offers Swiss made movement and Swiss parts movements. Typically the gold colored movements are Swiss made and the silver are Swiss parts. Out of curiosity, I popped the back off and.... Ronda 515... Silver plates.... Swiss in spirit only, lol. Thanks again @yankeedog
    • Well  my Florida brother. I hate to burst your bubble, BUT. Your pro diver  may or may not have a swiss  movement..most likely  it is a ronda 515...which may or may not  have come from Thailand. Ronda,a swiss  company  outsources there.some 515s are swiss,some are Thai. With invicta  it is really  the luck  of the draw. I like  your kirovskie  idea. Just be aware that that watch is not shock  protected..so you can NEVER  drop it.A quick  look  at them online reveals  a movement  that I think is a poljot  2409 with  without  shock protection...these movements  run well  for  a very long time. A have a few that  came in cheapo sixties  watches,that  run as well  or better  than  my cheapo swiss  watches of  the same era.
    • I just got this one and of course the crystal needs to be polished out, but the question is what battery did it take and how is it supposed to stay in place? Is there a battery holder missing? I can set a 39- negative down on it and press the back on carefully and it will run since the positive contacts the case, but surely that isn’t all there is to it. Has anyone else seen one like this?
