If you plan on doing this yourself, find a nice heavy pair of needle nose pliers and put the ends in the knotches on the casing back. Have them as far apart from each other as you can and turn counter-clockwise. If you still have problems opening, put the watch in a vise with the lugs in the teeth of the vise. DO NOT tighten too hard or you will snap the lugs. It dosn't have to be tight , just enough to hold the watch while you turn the back. If you still have problems please let me know and we will find another way of doing this.Good luck!!

SOURCE: Cannot get the cover back on Fossil watch after changing battery

First open your bracelet. Then align groove in caseback with crown and press that side lightly into the case. Then using both hands(one from dial side, another from back) press as strong as you can.
If this do not work:
Get mens leather belt and place it on flat surface(table top). Lay the watch face down on that belt. Again adjust caseback as before and using your weight push caseback down with both hands.
NEVER use hammer or similar.
If none of these works- go and see your nearest watchmaker.

SOURCE: Resetting stopwatch dials - Armani AR5331

When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement.
Do as follows:
1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions)
2) push the crown in half way back (not completely)
3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done
4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in
5) pull the crown out again and set desired time
6) push the crown back in.
If all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).

Rate me, please.

SOURCE: Bulova 96R31 keeps time + date, but the chronograph does not work

The problem is in chronograph module or related gear train. To find what exactly the problem is, special tools and equipment is needed as well as watchmakers knowledge and skill. There may be just an underpowered battery, but according to your explanation, I tend to think that the first causes mentioned by me are the right ones. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to check your watch for any faults. Rate me, please.

My new eco drive watch has been charging for two days. It it keeping time but the big second hand does not move. Any advice or send it back?


Is your watch a chronograph? Many chronograph watches use the larger seconds hand only for chrono' functions such as stopwatch or countdown timer, and often have a small sub-dial for seconds.
If there are buttons on the side of your watch, you will probably find that pressing those will cause the large seconds hand to come into operation.
If it isn't a chronograph watch then send it back -it's faulty.

Can get the time to start


The watch is a chronograph. If the time hands are not working, minutes and hours, you probably need a new battery. If they are working and it is the chronograph(stopwatch) hands you can't get going then you need to push the buttons that control the chronograph.

As jimmyguru said.
1. Pull the crown to the second position (all the way out)
2. Push and hold the reset button and allow the chronograph hand to rotate near the 12 o'clock position.
3. Release the reset button.
4. Repeatedly push and release the reset button to find tune the hand position until it is right at 12 o'clock.
5. Push the crown back in.

Invicta model 3209 watch


Your watch is fitted with chronograph movement 5040D made by Ronda (Switzerland). If you take a closer look, then you will realise that the subdial at 3 o'clock is counting seconds allready. This is your seconds dial, not the big one.
The big seconds hand actually is the chronograph hand (stopwatch) and, when activated, works together with 1/10th counter.
Follow this link and see for yourself:

Find movement 5040D and click on INTERACTIVE version.

Rate me, please.

Fossil ch 2470 watch. I have no idea what the extra little dials are for on the face and how to set them. Please help


The dials are part of a Chronograph (stop watch) I assume there is a second, minute, and maybe a date function. Usually the large second hand is part of the stop watch on only moves when you start the stopwatch (top right button) push again to stop and reset back too zero is the bottom button. Usually to set or zero out those dials pull out the crown to the first click (also sets date) then push the top button to set the seconds (big hand) and the bottom button to set the other. sometimes you may need to pull the crown out to the second click (also sets hour and minutes) to set add'l dials. This is generally how you set most chronograph watches the button you push and what moves may be different.
