Question about Field and Stream Magnum F42GUBS Wrist Watch

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 :)

Hello, I have bought a black dial mens watch and understand how to set the time, but how do you get it going? Please help.Thanks.

Olga, make sure the crown in pressed in all the way, if this doesn't get it running then you may need a new cell (battery). I am assuming it is a battery powered watch. Your description describes about a billion watches, Michael

Mens Relic watch stopped working after battry change

I suggest that your watch has an oxidized contacts and electricity can not reach the movement.
Do as folloes:
Take out the batttery,
Clean (scrape) all battery related contacts till they are shiny (use hardened steel needle for that),
Use the dust blower to get rid off any tiny dust and dirt particles after cleaning,
Refit the battery back.
Now your watch should work again.
If all written above do not help, then there is a problem with your watch and you will need the help of the watchmaker.
Do not forget to rate, please.

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.
