How to remove bezel and crystal on Swatch Irony Watch?


The crystal can be blown off by compressing air inside the watch. First the crown has to be removed carefully without breaking it from its shaft. This can be done by binding yarn behind the crown and pulling it while swinging the yarn around, almost like pulling a tooth. Once the crown is removed together with its shaft. Find a thin tube to fit into the crown's hole and which can fit to an air pump's adapter. A thin bicycle pump will do. Have a screen ready to catch the crystal. Once compression can be established inside the watch, gradually add more pressure until the crystal pops off. It may be necessary to hit the pump to pulse compressed air, but do it gradually and be prepared that the crystal will pop off with a bang. This is a risky process and the dial with arms may blow off if something goes wrong.

Swatch diaphane second hand stuck


Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

Water (vapor) under the crystal


Water condensation on the inside of your watch crystal means that moisture has entered your watch, most likely through the hole in which the setting crown/stem is fitted, or, possibly, through the door of your battery compartment. It's usually easier for water to enter a watch then to leave it again. Water inside a watch can quickly corrode delicate parts, causing erratic timekeeping and premature failure of the watch, so you'll want to get it out of your watch as quickly as possible.

Fortunately, it's not that difficult to get moisture out of a Swatch. Pull the crown out into the time setting position and remove the back battery hatch. Then, turn the watch face down and leave it in the sun for a few hours. If you're worried about dust and/or rain getting into your watch, leave it inside a parked car that's in the sun--that will actually speed up the drying process, as car interiors, with the windows closed, quickly heat up far beyond outside ambient temperatures (except in winter). If it's dark outside, you can accelerate the drying process by using a hair dryer set to low / medium heat and heating the crystal gently until the moisture has evaporated. You don't want to heat the crystal too much or else it may start to melt or crack.

Once the water is out of the watch, close up the battery compartment and update the time/date for your watch. You should be good to go, as long as you try to keep your watch dry when doing things like washing hands and the like. If you had been doing so, it's also time to stop wearing your watch when you shower, wash your car, or engage in other activities where the watch is exposed to a lot of water.

I have a swatch irony chrono, but when I stop the stop-watch and push the bottom button, the sweep hand ends up at the 11 o'clock and not the 12 position. My quartz Parnis does this, and its driving me...


Assuming the mechanics work ok (thay all do 360 degree turns) it's just a calibration issue: download from SWATCH support a PDf which describes how to zero the watch hands, it's simple as taking the crown out to 3rd step, the pushing the buttons repectively till they point 12 direction. Exact details in the PDF.

Watch face/knob rubbing a sore in wrist; had it adjusted twice; needs more adjusting? or is it too large for hand?


It depends. Maybe your skin is very sensible. May be the material used is't good for you. But mostly the main reason is: crown (you say knob) is too large for the wearer or have too sharp edges. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and explain what the problem is. Watchmaker will find other crown (different in shape and size, but no lesser quality) and will fit to your watch for your comfort. Rate me, plz.
