Timex Dynabeat Stem Removal


Recommended Posts

Greetings to All Members:

Just found your website today & decided to join. From what I saw on your home page looks like you carry a broad range of topics. I have been collecting watches about 2 years.  Always on the lookout for mainly wrist watches, both mechanical & electronic.......and occasionally quartz. Have no real specific brand other than mostly American Names from the 20's through 1960's. I also have several mantle clocks & several pocket watches. Just always on the lookout for any interesting examples of particular eras. I have limited skills & "eye sight" outside of working on case, dial , hands & crystal polishing/replacement.

Currently am working on a Timex Dynabeat(ElectroMechanical).....I hope your site has some people that work on these Timex Dynabeat Watches....purchased on EBay.....looks good after clean & polish but not running. Battery leaked some but not too bad......just want to remove works from case to clean leaked corrosion. But on this watch I am at a lose as to how to remove the stem from watch works.......any information or vidios on this would be appreciated.

Thank you.    Dan

..any information or videos would be appreciated

Hi if you remove the movement from the front by removing the crystal (front loader) then you have a split stem .pull the stem out to the time setting position

carefully place a pair of tweezers under the crown and gently pull evenly and the stem will pull in two pieces. Then you can place the watch on a movement pad and tip it upside down and it will separate from the  case .Make sure that you pull evenly with the tweezers .

I don't think that is quite right.:startle: See here:-

You use the tweezers to expand the retaining spring to release the stem.....In practice you usually have to do this twice as the very end part of the stem usually catches on the retaining spring and stops you pulling it all,of the way out......

Never the less --- by puting the tweezer tapers under the crown AND apply gental pressure is a good way TO FIND OUT if the watch has a 2 part stem OR NOT.   the diagram told you a timex has a special to get the mvt. out of the case.   this is the best forum for learning, videos and books,    cheers.    vin

    • so now we have the ultimate? How do we deliver it?  
    • Russia is member of the Universal Postal Union and as such their Post must accept pieces for any destination. International tariffs link https://www.pochta.ru/documents/10231/726549028/УУС+2021_.pdf/ Interstingly unlike hey do not group destinations by listing orcontinents but by distance - however measured.  Then any individual seller is free to decide where they do ship and where not. I suggest that you contact the seller and inquire, he may be just be unfamiliar with remote destinations prices. 
    • I don't get your point. If you make or maintain a measurement tool, of any kind, you need a reference for calibration or just validation. It can be more or less accurate but it has to be there, that's metrology 101. You can have all the atomic clocks and Network Time Protocol to disseminate time, the issue is how to bring that accuracy to a standalone device and know if it is reliable.  Otherwise one can get into watercolor painting or other interests that do not require that kind of approach at all. 
    • Material houses like cousins, eslinger, ofrei, julesborel do carry watch parts, though I doubt you can find a sign crown for this. Familiarize with  Dr ranfft's very popular database for good general information on most calibers, just google ETA 1260 ranfft. Good luck
    • You can use any crown of your liking and that matches the pendant tube. Since you haven't posted pictures of the case one can't tell how it should like.  Two piece stems are easily available, even on Ebay.    As answered sometime. In the past service manuals did not exist because the watchmaker was supposed to known his trade well enough.  Parts lists were issued to ease identification and ordering, very many including for the one you have can be downloaded from Cousins UK.
