It's possible you may have stripped the thread or cross-threadded it. If you have a magnifier check the condition of the thread on bothe the inside of the crown and outside of the pendant.

Assuming that these parts are unique to your make of watch, then according to their web site there are no distributors in Austrailia.

If you go to their web site (www.vostok-europe.com/), you will see a map of the world and the countries that have distributors are shown in red.

Your nearest distributor is in Indonisia but you could just a easily order one from an English speaking country (to increase the chances of getting what you want!)

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Water Resistant is a common mark stamped on the back of wrist watches to indicate how well a watch is sealed against ingress of water. It is usually accompanied by an indication of the static test pressure that a sample of newly manufactured watches was exposed to in a leakage test. The test pressure can be indicated either directly in bars, or (more commonly) as an equivalent water depth in meters (in the United States sometimes also in feet).
An indication of the test pressure in terms of water depth does not mean a water resistant watch was designed for repeated long term use in such water depths. For example, a water resistant watch marked at 30 meters depth cannot be expected to withstand activity for longer time periods in a swimming pool, let alone continue to function at 30 meters under water. This is because the test is conducted only once using static pressure on some of the newly manufactured watches. The test for qualifying a diving watch for repeated usage in a given depth includes safety margins to take factors in account like aging of the seals, rapidly changing water pressure and temperature, as well as dynamic mechanical stresses encountered by a watch. Also every diving watch has to be fully tested for water resistance.
Hope this helps.

Cannot set time for time for tag heure CL111a


You probably have a screw down crown. Turn the crown counterclockwise and unscrew the crown. Now you should be able to pull it out. When tightening it back down, don't over tighten, just snug. This is to keep moisture out of your watch. Always have it screwed down unless you are setting the watch. Nice watch, Michael

Watch is missing user guide, how do I set the Honora 3ATM watch


To set a basic wristwatch, simply pull the crown (the winder button at the 3:00 position on 99% of watches) out gently - it will click into adjusting position. Wind to send time and then push back in again.

Variations on this are: If you have a watch with date display, the crown will have 2 positions, the first click will be to set the date and the second click (fully out) is to set time. If you need to adjust the date, I suggest you wind the date to the day before you need and then use the second click to wind the hands to the correct date. This way you will be able to know if you have the hour at a.m or p.m position and avoid it have the date changing during the day instead of at night.

One last variation for wristwatches is a screw down crown. Some water resistant and sports models incorporate an added feature whereby the crown is threaded so it can be tightened down to avoid water entering - the most common place water gets into a watch! If you have one of these, you simply need to screw the crown anticlockwise until it pops out and then refer to the instructions above. Don't forget to push and screw the crown back in clockwise when you are done

I cannot pull out the time setting screw on the rhs of a ladies wn311 Tah Heuer.


The time setting screw is more accurately called the crown which is, in your case, a 'screw down crown'. This is done for water resistance. You must first unscrew the crown before you can pull it out. When you are finished setting the watch you must screw it back in. It may require that you press in on the crown and turn it at the same time to get the threads to catch. No need to overtighten it.

Im trying to adjust the time because it stopped when i took it off for a day. Im not sure how i can change it because the adjusting knob is not popping out.


mcdevito75 here, Tissot a very, very great name and watch, a you know most stems pull out to set the time, some watches have a screw down crown this adds to it"s waterproofing as there is a gasket under the crown. Maybe your Tissot has this screw down crown, simply un screw the crown then gently pull up on the crown to set the time. If this fails, see any Jewler for help, doN't mess with the watch to much a syou or anyone could wreck it, and Tissot is very expensive.

Screw down crown wont lock


There are only two things that can cause screw down crown to malfunction. First is dirt and second is weakened/damaged thread. In first case you need to use ultrasonic cleaner by immersing the crown AND case to get rid of any dirt and grime sticking on both threads. If the matter is weakened/damaged thread - you will have to fit new crown and (possibly) new case tube on which crown is screwed onto. This can be done by decent watchmaker only.
Rate me, plz.

Screw down crown wont screw down


Either the crown or the case tube threads are stripped. Which ever part is stripped needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that both could be the problem. Be sure you don't get your watch wet until this is fixed. Your watch is NOT sealed for water resistance if the crown does not screw down.

Hope this helps.
