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.
Hello and good afternoon to all.
OK, here is another little horological teaser for you to get your heads around.
I have this great OASIS lady's (?) B270 watch that I got in a set to be repaired. It actually only needed a battery and works great.
However, the strap DEFINITELY needs replacing!
AND here is my problem.
I just CANNOT figure out HOW to get the spring bar out.
Actually, I am not sure it IS a spring bar. I have tried hard with all manner of tools (spring bar removers, screwdrivers, sharp knives etc.) to get the spring to release, but no joy.
I took the strap off by hand, so you can see the photos to see what I have. I really HOPE it IS a spring bar, but if so, HOW to get it out??
And if it is NOT, then HOW to fit a new strap on other than by glue?
Also, as an aside to all this, does ANYONE know how to set the date on this watch?
But first things first eh! As far as I can tell, there are NOT two positions that you can pull out the crown to. But I could well be wrong.
Hello there watch fix fans. Here's (I hope) an interesting one for you.
I have this beautiful small ladies 'Fero Feldmann' Swiss-made watch - it came in a bag of "used and to be repaired" watches.
From what I can see, the mechanism seems in very good working order. Just a slight shake and it goes and goes. There is no strap, but that is not the issue here.
The problem is the stem and/or crown. As you can see, there is definitely no crown. But I am wondering about the stem.
The watch does have its case and edoes have, as you can see, a hole where the stem and/or crown will/should fit in.
There is something which appears to be some kind of part-stem at the 3 o'clock position.
Using tweezers I can pull it out and push it back in quite freely. A very small screw on top holds this "stem" in place. I think you can see, in ths second photo, how this "stem" attaches to the rest of the movement.
Clearly I need to attach a crown. BUT what about a stem? A stem extension? Or one of those crowns which has an extended stem-like attachment which should fix onto this current "stem" in this watch?
Yes, the watch face is somewhat scratched, and the minute hand is a little bent at the top. You may say it is not worth my while trying to get this fixed. But I just SO MUCH like this little watch and would LOVE to give it life again! It clearly IS still "alive" - though I'm not sure if it is a mechanical wind-up or an automatic. The latter of these seems to be the case - as I said earlier, a little shake and the mechanism goes and goes. PErhaps with a little oil (and lots of encouragement) it can be made good.
So my main question - what kind of stem/crown to attach and how to do it?
Hi there watch repair experts and fans! My first time here so please be gentle with me
It concerns the ladies watch you see in the pics and, in particular, its rather unusual metal bracelet strap.
I want to make the strap a few links shorter.
Normally with metal bracelets it is, of course, all about pushing out the pins, taking out the bits of the bracelet you don't need and then putting it all back together.
But THIS one has a weird-looking two-section bracelet which, as far as I can see, is held together by very small screws (?) from each side and no pins involved.
Obviously I am wondering what to do to get the pins/screws out.
Another thing of course i that I will have to take one link from either side of the bracelet.
Anyone seen a bracelet like this before. HOW to do this adjustment??
I hope you can see what you need to in these photos.
today I was working on a watch (the movement was eb8810) and after I was happy with the result I put the movement under a. glass, come back to it 2-3 hours later, still ticking so I put it back in the watch case and after about 15 seconds it stoped ticking as I started to move it around I don't know where to go from here wether or not it needs re-oiling or a new part in the balance operation, this is not the first watch I have experienced this in and didn't end up doing anything with the other watch.
thanks in advance,
p.s I am looking for an eb8800 movement in working condition so message me if you have one

Thank you, all for the friendly welcome. To answer the questions brought up; no, I am not a farrier, I interpret the blacksmith trade at the High Point Museum Historical Park, in High Point, North Carolina, USA. My smithing skills don't help much with tinkering with my watches, rather the other way around. Watchmaking has helped teach me patience. Oldhippy, I am fascinated by the history of the blacksmith/clock maker, and their involvement in early tower clock building and repair.
I'll bet you if you take a small screwdriver tip and make a small V in it, it would prevent and possibility in slipping. This will now work for pocket watches of course. Thoughts? Or do the same with a long thin piece of brass so less steel on steel contact. Sent from my GT-N5110 using Tapatalk
