Hi, new to repairing, just getting my feet wet, so be prepared for me to use incorrect language, and have things explained like I'm 5 :)
A couple years ago, I purchased a Seiko Sportsmatic Weekdater, cal. 6619-7050.
Soon after purchase, the crown detached from the stem, and I took it in to local watchmaker for repair. It was returned in apparently good shape, but actually the problem still exists.
I'd like to learn how to fix the problem, and hopefully bring this watch back to my wrist.
It appears that the crown screws onto the stem, but that is as far as I have got.
Any assistance would be welcomed. I did find a service manual elsewhere, but I'm a bit lost as it's my first.
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.
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?
Hey guys, my name is Lorenz. I am an 18 year old electrical engineering student from Germany.
I got this Breitling chronospace a56012.1 from my granddad and I want to repair it.
Besides a slight clicking noise while turning the crown ( someone please let me know if this is normal ) it works just fine.
My main problem is that the black color on the Bezel is worn out on some positions and I dont know where to find a paint that holds on the metal nor do I know how to paint it again.
I have worked with watches already, I disassembled a mechanical movement cleaned and oiled it again so I feel pretty confident in doing this job.
And I would also like to change out the crystal, does anyone know what size crystal I need for this watch?
Thanks in regards for any advice.
Early 60's Elgin 10K Shockmaster. I suppose one of their attempts at water proofing a watch (see the crystal and gasket in the second picture). The question is how to get the crown off (Its wobbly when pulled out to the set position and I am certain it contains a gasket) so I can remove the movement? Dis-assemble the keyless works in place so I can grab the stem and unscrew the crown?? Thanks.
Take the movement out of the case. Move the minute hand manually for the warning and watch the rack drop, take note of where the gathering pallet engages the rack. The correct position for the snail should be for twelve o’clock it should be about, see red arrow. Forget the black ones. Try that first. Let me know.
Today I'm sporting a Denison cushion cased Rone Sportsmans 15 jewel with bags of character most probably from the late forties or early fifties.
This had been lying for quite a while in the to-do pile, as I had assumed that since it was locked up solid and had a distinct rattle, it would have a broken balance. Fortunately this was not the case, and all it needed was a thorough clean and now it is ticking away quietly. It is sitting around +10 sec/day, all be it with a relatively low swing around 220 degrees (a slightly tired mainspring most likely) but a more healthy beat error of 0.6ms.
The diminutive size of this Gents watch is quite a contrast with the recent trend for wrist mounted frying pans.
I had no suitable strap for it so I had to improvise from one of the straps in the scrap pile.
