I actually have a couple problems I could use some help with. I’ll start with the more serious one I guess. I don’t have any trouble getting the back off my watches or changing the battery, but every time I use my tool to snap the back back on, something happens to the crown pin. It just lets go and comes out. I thought it was a strange occurrence the first time but I tried another one this week and got the same results. I’ve done this same thing on hundreds of other watches of different types and brands but never ran into this problem before. Can someone please help me figure out what I’m doing wrong?
Also, a couple of my watches don’t seem to be able to adjust to my teeny tiny wrist size. In my Monarch, the majority of the links don’t have holes to remove the pins. Is there any other way to remove a couple links. Any advice would be appreciated immensely!!!
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?
Yours truly, Josh
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.

does the hairspring always need to be shaped where it rests against the regulator pin? Or is it ok if the hairspring touches the boot side with the screw slot instead? Seems to me it wouldnt make a difference as long as it touches one side or the other
Well. It seems it can not be take out unless you have a jewelling machine. That's why I'm asking
something like that but it doesn't have anything screw to release it. It's the jewel of train of wheels，not balance
