Stem/crown for this Fero Feldmann ladies watch - but WHAT exactly?

Recommended Posts

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?

The thing which you reffered to as, something which appears like....at 3 o,clock, is the remaing piece of broken stem, right next to it is a long screw going from the bottom plate to top plate, the long screw has small diameter. Unscrew that about a turn, try pulling out the broken stem, if it didn,t come out ,unscrew the long screw anoher fourth of turn, try to pull the broken piece of stem then. 

This long screw is holding the setting lever at the other end, under the dial. If you unscrew it more you may release the setting lever loose, a pain.

      Hello, 
      I have a j810 movement that needs a stem and crown. Can’t find part numbers. Citizen eco-drive j810-s088232.

      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

      So there is this timex automatic i found online from a reputable seller. I cant find much about it anywhere. Ive been looking for a timex automatic but already have a few watches that look like the marlin. This one is a little different and i like it. Any info would be greatly appreciated

      Hello everybody,

      I open this thread to archive works on Citizen 8110A Bullhead. I purchased this watch in poor condition as You can see on the photos.


      Cause I have serviced few chronographs in the past I decide to try restore this watch. Maybe is not ractional from the economical aspect but we do this because we love it So let's open it.

      Hands are in good condition (required repaint and relume) but the dial has broken legs and tachy scale is faded :/ I think it's really hard to find orginal and there is no gold aftermarket replacement - sad. Look at the movement.







       
      Gosh, what a dirty place It needs good cleaning and oiling. 
      But the biggest problems are this.


       
      Broken post on main spring bridge and missing rocking bar core and screw in gear train. I need to find replacement.

      While I'll be working on movement the case and pushers are send to renew - putting new gold plated coat

       

      Stay tuned
