I recently bought myself a cheap repair kit and I successfully changed the battery on this watch that was dormant in a drawer for about 4 years!
However, the problem is I haven't done something right as the day sub dial is ticking away same as the second hand sub dial!, I'm sure it isn't meant to do that.
I'm obviously putting it back together incorrectly and also the two little white plastic cogs you can see in the pics, I can't remember where they go?! If someone please can talk me through the process it would be massively appreciated or any pointers, advice would be great. Thank you
I would like to thank AndyHull, as well as, another member (at this moment I can't remember who it was) for graciously allowing others to rummage in what appears to be their own PDF libraries for the benefit of all and would encourage others to do the same. If there aren't any issues in developing a communal library/depository, I would also like to encourage this as well. If one does exist please direct us all to it.
I have recently found a great program for managing PDFs, https://calibre-ebook.com, give it a try.
Thanks for all the great information I've gleaned from here/you so far.
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?
I offered to switch out the battery on my friends quartz watch since it had died (the seconds hand was ticking in place)
I replaced the battery and still nothing. So i thought I'd take out the movement to get a closer look. so I tug on it a little and it pops out, and the watch face stays in place. Now I have loose hands stuck between glass and the face with no way to get the dial off.
after 2 hours of internet searching I found only 1 post with the same problem. And their solution doesn't help.
This isn't my watch but It's the exact same problem. There is some sort of retaining ring holding the face from coming out of the back. I cannot pry it out, I've tried. Do I have to remove the crystal? heat?
I've got basic repair tools for my Seiko 5, but don't have a crystal press. Is this cheap Chinese watch toast?
I honestly just wanted to know how much it would cost me to fix my meylan stopwatch no. 214 if I were to send it to meylan to fix. I feel i should because on the inside the bezel case said to. And if I choose to send it to meylan then do i just send it or can I set up something online because on meylan's website I can't find anything about repairs or my stopwatch in particular. If you can help with some answers I would greatly appreciate it.
I have a Quartz Marathon Navigator with a Rotating Bezel that is frozen. I would like to remove the bezel, clean it up and hopefully get it working again. Having never worked on one, I'm not sure how the bezel is removed. Can anyone advise me on how to remove the bezel.
