Try these guys for a manual; http://www.timemerchants.com/catalog.htm They have the 2000 daytona manual and several older ones available. Otherwise try your local Rolex dealer; http://www.rolex.com/en/collection/rolex-gallery/cosmograph-daytona/specification.jsp#/en/xml/inside-rolex/sales-service/affiliates/index Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Wrist Watch unable to remove link

First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!

Hope it'll help.

Regards

Arthur

Hello!
Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".

WILL RUN A SHORT TIME THEN STOP


mcdevito75 here, I would imagine your Rolex is an automatic, not all Rolexes are. After 2 days not running at all your Rolex needs a very good start not just putting it on and that"s it. Sorry to say!, I would ask you to do this, With your watch close to your ear I would like you to wind the watch, listen closely, if you haer a clicking or a drag sound you know you have to give about 20 winds to your watch before you put it on, after the 20 winds the automatic takes over. If the stem just spins and no sound, Click or drag, then your rolex is fully automatic, after you put it on you"ll have to ttwist your wrist back and forth to get the automatic moveing to wind your watch somewhat. Twist your wrist back and forth maybe 20--30 times, this way your watch has an initial wind and as you wear it the winding continues with the motion of your wrist, after it"s wound pretty good if it stops and goes, have the watch serviced.

I need to know how to set my 8700 calibre watch


Hi,here is a solution to help you out:
1. Pull the crown out one click.
A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL"
2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out)
A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month)
B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move.
3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution.

However,you still have every reason to own the manual of your wrist watch for future references,so follow the link below to download the manual of your wrist watch;
http://www.citizenwatch.com/COA/English/settings.asp

There are so many aplications use of the manual will be manditory.

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.


Thanks and take care

I have a watch that is supposed to wind itself by the movement of my wrist rocking around the wheel and it has stopped.


How old is the watch? If its an older automatic watch it might need to be cleaned! There are 2 types of auto wind watches. Springs or capacitor! If its a spring then take the watch off of your wrist and while holding it in your hand gently rock it back and forth. You should feel the weight moving around inside. If its a capacitor and doesnt start to run after you gently rock it in your hand then you need to take it to a watch repair business and see if they can replace the capacitor!

Good luck!

My Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive JR3000-51F Wrist Watch has stopped running. The analog hands have stopped at 12:00 and the left digital read out is flashing UTC and the right digital read out is flashing...


I had the same issue, and was able to reset it doing the following:

1. I let it recharge for at least a day in bright sunlight
2. I turned the selector to "CHR"
3. I pulled the crown all the way out.
4. I held both buttons down for 5 seconds (don't know if this was what did it.
5. I pushed the crown back in.

It did some funky hand movements stuff and then started off working.

I have not worn my SEIKO kinetic wrist watch for a


Here is the information from the website. The link to the manual is provided below. HOW TO CHARGE AND START THE WATCH Swing the watch from side to side approximately 50 times. * Before swinging the watch, check and remember where the minute hand is so that you can tell if the start-up indicator has worked or not. First, check that the crown is at the normal position. * If the crown is pulled out and the watch is swung, the start-up indicator will not work even if the watch starts operating. * Swing rhythmically at a rate of twice a second. * No additional benefit is obtained by swinging the watch more quickly or with greater vigor. * When the watch is swung, the oscillating weight in the generating system rotates to drive the mechanism. As it rotates, it gives out a sound, which is not a malfunction. 1 2 The minute hand moves quickly and stops as the watch starts operating. (Start-up indicator) Then, it will move at 20-second intervals. 3 After checking that the minute hand has done this, pull out the crown to set the time. 4 After pushing back the crown in to the normal position, swing the watch further approximately 350 times to reserve one day of power, and then, put the watch on your wrist. http://www.seikowatches.com/support/ib/pdf/1m20_e.pdf Good luck, Techjoel

Watch stopped after not being used for several days


The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.
