Question about Field and Stream Magnum F42GUBS Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Field & Stream Mens Watch, F42GUBS

I have a Field & Stream Watch, Model F42GUBS. It has not worked for some time. I am assuming it needs a Battery, however, i see that it is a Quartz Battery and I am not familiar with buying and replacing these. Would this most likely be the reason it is not working? And, where can i get it fixed or can i do myself?

Take the watch to a jeweller. They should have all the batteries and seals and tools necessary for the job, and it rarely takes long or costs that much. you could probably manage yourself, but getting the seals especially is easiest through a jeweller anyway. Most likely reason for any watch to be not working is the battery, the next would be moisture inside - normally visible round the screen/face. always worth replacing the battery to see, unless the watch cost less than the battery, which it didn't. Hope this helps :)

No work quartz


This watch is kinetic, in that a moving rotor inside the watch powers a rechargeable battery that runs the quartz mechanism. You should not need to attempt to open the watch! It may be that the battery is flat (especially if it's not been worn for a while) - you can try swinging the watch back and forth to charge it (check online for charging instructions for Seiko or Pulsar kinetic watches). If that fails, take it to a reputable establishment for repair.

I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...


If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.

I just replaced the battery on a fossil watch and it won't work. How to you reset it? or what else needs to be done? Please help me. thanks.


mcdevito75 here, Your Fossil watch should work with the battery change, of course it will need to be re-set. You"ll have to double check the battery install, make sure the battery contacts are clean, use a piece of paper towel and carefully clean the battery contacts. Hopefully your new battery is not dead. Another thing to check for, is that the buttons contacts are lined up with the quartz movement. While you double check your battery install, carefully press 1 button at a time, and make sure each button is making contact with the quartz mechanism, many times during a battery change to quartz movement may move just slightly but enough to keep the buttons from contacting the movement, this will keep the watch from working. Hopefully 1 or all of these is the answer for your Fossil watch.

I bought a Park Lane Ladies watch on ebay it says quartz and was described in working condition i set the time pushed the pin in and nothing how do I get this to work


mcdevito75 here, If when you recieved the watch from ebay you had to push the crown in to get it going, we can assume a battery wa sin the watch, thus pushing in the stem (pin) should activate or start the watch. The battery could have gotton loose during shipping, Try pulling out the stem turning the hands as though to set the time, push the stem back in and see if the watch starts, if not, visit a small watch repair shop in your area for possibly a new battery.

Compass dial turned opposite direction


you might be able to reverse the poles back to normal with a magnet but be careful not to scratch face or get it closer than you need to to the insides of the watch.
