How much is a ELGIN men's Diamond Base Metal Bezel FG007 017 PC21 Japan Movt stainless steel back wrist watch worth


probably not as much as you think it is worth. There are to many varibles to consider value. An item is only worth what another person is willing to give you for it. If you truly want its value, go have it appraised. That will cost you to get a qualified appraisal.

Tip

Watch glossary: E


EBAUCHE
Incomplete (jeweled or non-jeweled) watch movement without regulating organs, mainspring, dial and hands.
ECO-DRIVE
A name for a patented power mechanism found on some Citizen watches. This mechanism uses ordinary light to keep a rechargeable battery powered for watch operation. This technology is very sophisticated allowing some watch models to remain powered for up to 5 years in the dark. Watches with Eco-Drive technology will never need to have the battery replaced.
ELAPSED TIME ROTATING BEZEL
A graduated rotating bezel used to keep track of elapsed time. The bezel can be turned so the wearer can align the zero on the bezel with the watch's seconds or minutes hand. After a period of time passes, you can read the elapsed time off the bezel. This saves you having to perform the subtraction that would be necessary if you used the watch's regular dial.
ELECTROPLATING PROCESS
Process of covering metal articles with a film of other metals. The article is immersed in a chemical solution; electric current (D.C.) flows through the solution from a piece of metal (anode) to the article (cathode), depositing metal thereon by electrolysis.
ENDSTONE
Undrilled jewel, placed on the balance jewel with the tip of the balance-staff pivot resting against its flat surface, to reduce pivot friction. Sometimes used also for pallet staffs and escape wheels.
ENGINE-TURNED, see guilloché.
EQUATION OF TIME
Indication of the difference, expressed in minutes, between conventional mean time and real solar time. This difference varies from -16 to +16 seconds between one day and the other.
EQUINOX
The time when day and night are of equal length, when the sun is on the plane of the equator. Such times occur twice in a year: the vernal equinox on March 21st-22nd and the autumnal equinox on September 22nd-23rd.
ESCAPEMENT
Positioned between the train and the balance wheel and governing the rotation speed of the wheel - train wheels. In today's horology the most widespread escapement type is the lever escapement. In the past, numerous types of escapements were realized, such as: verge, cylinder, pin-pallet, detent and duplex escapements. Recently, George Daniels developed a so-called "coaxial" escapement.

The black plastic ring, w/ white markings (bezel ?), that goes on the metal (dial) which moves around, fell off. Is this part avail., and if so, for how much ?


This part is called the bezel, you are correct. They are available to buy as a separate item for certain watches, but not all. You didn't mention what type of watch it was. Most major brands, like Rolex, Omega, Tag Heuer etc all sell bezels for their watches, brands though like Diesel, Rotory, Seiko etc, do not sell bezels as a stand alone item. Should you wish to let me know the make and model of the watch, I will see if I can obtain one, or failing that I will see if I have one that will fit.

I can't pull the bezel out to change the time on this watch! Help


The bezel is metal ring surrounding the crystal. What you can not pull out is called CROWN. Unscrew it first and then pull out.

A metal jewel fell off of the watch face and is loose on the dial


I suggest you take it to a watch shop and ask them to repair it for you.

It can be more difficult than it appears to remove and replace backs particularly.

The outer dial free spins instead of clicks what is wrong with it


I think you are referring to the bezel around the crystal (glass). There is a spring under the bezel and it has broken. It can be replaced.

Hope this helps.
