You are right- crowns(stem caps) are usually just screw-on type, but you will need to find your nearest watchmaker anyway as crowns vary in thread, diameter and tube sizes. Depths, types and shapes are numerous as well. All these measurements MUST be very correct otherwise the crown simply will not fit and function.

How do I find the serial number on my Polar FT4 watch


Turn the watch over and look on the back of the watch near the wrist band. The serial number is the rather long set of numbers you will see there. You can't miss it. If you see what look like zeros or letter O's, they are zeros, not O's. I have the same watch, and that is your serial number.

Does my watch have a battery or do i have to wind it? I tried winding it but it still isnt working I just want to be sure before i bring it to a repair shop. I thank you in advance. Thomas


mcdevito75 here, If you try to wind your watch listen for the distinctive click, click as you wind, if you haer this click, click then it"s a a windup, if the stem just turns without the distinctive sound click, click. then it"s a battery watch, also look for any word on the watch that says Quartz. ONE more thing, you may have a screw down cover on the winding stem, un screw the cover on the stem to get to (the crown, winding stem itself) Most likely you have to un-screw this cover on the stem to get to the actuall stem itself, Invicta makes watches like this to add waterproofing to the watch.

I pulled on the crown and it came off the stem


Do not open the watch yet, as you do not know how to get the stem out.
Take an eyeglass and examine the crown. You will find the small hub in the centre of the crown. If the centre of this hub is hollow and you can see the thread in it- you will be able to screw it back on stem (all watch crowns are screwed on to stems, never pressed).
If the centre of that hub looks filled with metal, then the stem end is broke and you will need replace stem AND crown (the metal filling the hub is the broken end of stem).
In case if the crown still in tact, let me know by asking questions and I'll guide you through all the process HOW TO.

Rate me, please.

Missing piece?


You are not missing anything. The stem (metal bar, wich is going into movement) from the crown (you say knob) is broke. The stem is made of one piece and screws directly into crown. You've been unfortunate to brake it and the tiny end of stem still in the crown - the rest looks OK , but actually it is what's left of the stem. This is not the job you can do yourself, so, find the nearest watchmaker and ask for replacement. Do not forget to rate, please.

Winder on Rotary watch


Open the watch and lay it on the table dial down and winder facing you.
Get the hard steel needle and push down the small metal piece next to the to the place where the stem is entering the movement (on the left side). Pull out the stem while holding that piece down.
If thhat piece looks like screw cap (with the groove), then you have to unscrew it in order to get the stem out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

New watch..Jules Jurgenson day-date..the stem cap is loose.


remove the cap and put a tiny drop of locktite glue on it. spill some glue onto a piece of glass or an old plate and use a sewing needle to put a tiny drop of glue in the hole then screw it back on and wait till the remaing glue on the glass is gone hard before pushing the stem back in .. this last bit is important so as not to glue the stem to the watch. if this helps please rate me joe

The crown is probably a screw down style. The screw down stem is designed to keep the water out and should be screwed shut when not adjusting the watch. Look at the watch stem from the side, look from the 3 oclock to the 9 oclock, you should see the end of the stem. Now turn the stem counterclockwise. After a number of turns, the stem should pop out a bit, it is now ready to set. Most waterproof automatic day/date watches have 4 positions for the stem:

1: screwed down (locked)
2: unscrewed position A
3: unscrewed position B (stem pulled out to first "click")
4: unscrewed position C (stem pulled out all the way.)

Position A:
This is usually used to wind the watch, although some automatic watches cannot be wound by the stem.

Position B:
Used to set day/date. Turning the stem one direction will advance the day and turning it the other direction will advance the date.

Position C:
Used to set the time. Some watches will "hack," a term used to describe the ability to stop the second hand for accuracy purposes.

Be sure the watch is at least a little bit wound before starting theis procedure or it will not run when you get it set!


Unscrew the stem and pull it all the way out to position C. Now turn the stem to advance the time clockwise. Continue turning until the day/date advances, now you know you are in the AM 12 hrs of the day. It is important not to advance the day/date with the stem during the 3 hours before and the 3 hours after midnight, so go ahead and move the time to 8 am.

Now push the stem in sligthly until you are in position B. Sometimes it is easier to go to position A, the out to position B. Once in position B, advance the day/date until it is set for the current day/date.

Pull the stem out to position C. Adjust the time to one minute past the current time. Watch your reference timepiece until it matches your watch and push the stem in when they match.

Your watch is now set! Screw the crown down and wear it in good health.


Hacking. If you stop the second hand at 0 seconds, and wait for your reference timepiece to reach 0 seconds also, you can set the watch to within a second accuracy.

Movement slop. If you advance the time past the time you wish to set your watch and then "backup" to your chosen time, you will remove the slop from the geartrain and make your watch set more accuretly

Illinois pocket watch stem removal.


First you must say what type as there are differences depending on the mfg and model.Be the following basics apply.
1- Put the stem in the setting position (usually pulled out if stem set).
2 Them open cover to expose the movement. ( Screw off or snap open).
3- Remove the movement (Usually held in place with 2 screws at the outer edge.
4-Then if there is a screw in the part that holds the stem loosen that.
5- The stem can be held with a pair of pliers on the flat and the crown unscrewed. Be careful not to damage the square (FLATS), with the pliers. A rag or other safety measure should be taken.
6- then inside the stem hole, looking from the ouside the is an annular area around the stem that has a ferrule screwed into the case this has to be unscrewed and will bring out the stem and the ferrule.
This siounds complicated but the steps are more involved to write than they are to perform.
There are many variations to this process, and each type should be understood before proceeding.
