SOURCE: i pulled on the crown and it came off the stem

Do not open the watch yet, as you do not know how to get the stem out.
Take an eyeglass and examine the crown. You will find the small hub in the centre of the crown. If the centre of this hub is hollow and you can see the thread in it- you will be able to screw it back on stem (all watch crowns are screwed on to stems, never pressed).
If the centre of that hub looks filled with metal, then the stem end is broke and you will need replace stem AND crown (the metal filling the hub is the broken end of stem).
In case if the crown still in tact, let me know by asking questions and I'll guide you through all the process HOW TO.

Rate me, please.

The crown protector is hinged on the lower end only. The upper end can be pulled away to expose the crown for time setting.

SOURCE: My crown fell off the stem of my Gucci watch. How

If you still have the crown you may be able to put it back on yourself. However for a secure repair you would need a watchmaker to repair this.

To try yourself get some RED locktite (available at any Ace hardware store or automotive store) Put a small amount on the threads of the crown. Then screw the crown onto the stem as much as possible.

Let it sit for about 10 minutes so the locktite can cure. Then you can try using it to set the time or whatever.

If this does not work you will need a watchmaker to repair this.

Prices to fix this would vary.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I remove the crown/stem.

To remove the stem you must first loosen the set lever screw, then you can pull the stem out.
You only need to turn the set lever screw a couple turns to release the stem. Some movements use a button instead and in that case you would simply push the button down lightly with a pointed tool and while holding the button down pull the stem out.
For watches with one-piece cases where the movement comes out the dial side and the case has no removable back, you will not be able to get at the set lever screw. For this type of watch you must grasp the crown firmly and pull it out, or use plastic or soft brass tweezers to get behind the crown and pop it off. These watches have two-piece stems that have male and female ends that snap together. Then remove the bezel and let the movement come out into your hands. Then remove the hands and the dial and put the movement face down into a movement holder.

Anybody know how to pop barrel pin back in on a mondaine watch, to restart the watch. See details for more context..


Mondaine is a quality Swiss manufacturer of watches, so they will use decent quality mechanisms/movements. You don't say if it is a quartz or a mechanical movement.
I assume by 'barrel pin' you are referring to the crown. Check that the crown is not a screw-down one. Try turning the crown slightly before trying to press it back.
It's possible that there is a fault with the 'latch' that holds the crown and stem in place. Do not attempt to force the crown back in!
If gentle persuasion fails to get the crown back in, I'd suggest a trip to your preferred watch repair centre.

How do I set the day of the week dial on my Swiss Legend Chronograph?


If the day will not change when you pull the crown out to the first position (try both directions) then pull the crown out to the second position. Advance the hands until yesterday shows in the day window. Now set the date by putting the crown in the first position and set it to yesterdays date. Now advance the hands (position 2 until the date and day change and then set the time. Done

Stem of watch won't return to its original position


The winding crown is loose on the stem. Get the stem completely out of watch and while holding in vice or pair of pliers screw the crown back on tight. Do not overscrew it, as the stem may brake. Even better would be to unscrew the crown first, dip the threaded stem end in to the Superglue and then screw the crown back. It will prevent from the same problem in future.

Rate, please.

Wenger Swiss Military Watch: small set-time handle fell off.


That small gizmo is called CROWN or WINDING CROWN. It is not possible to obtain it online, so, you have to shop around for it. Find your nearest watchmakers shop and ask for replacement. You may need stem as well.
Rate, please.
