I am trying to remove the crown from my Timex indigo watch so i can replace a digit that had come loose from the face. So far I have removed the case back. The movement is now loose but is prevented from being taken from the case by the crown shaft/stem. Can anyone tell me how to remove this?

mcdevito75, Some watches are waterproof, shockproof, and so on. But, no watch is air proof, Believe it or not air is always in your watch and---all air contains water, hot air, cold air, Heat up air and you seperate the water, the air in your watch gets hot on your wrist then cools when you go outside or when you take off the watch. The condensation you see is the tempersture change of the air in your Timex, Believe it or not. It really can"t be stopped, If you can or have a small watch repir shop remove the back and put in another seal around the back cover this should help. Try to keep your watch at a constant temp.
Timex suggests that you have a watch repair person change your watch batteries. I think it would be a good idea to try and replace the battery, but if that fails to work, contact Timex for advice. If they suggest that you should replace the entire wath, keep the battery. I have no guarantee that any of that would work, though.
Hi, on the back of the movement there should either be a screw or a dimple in line or next to the line of the stem. If a dimple, press in with a pin or similar sturdy tool and gently withdraw the stem. If a screw, only one turn should be enough to release the stem
