    It is not possible to fix ANY watch over the internet. All I can do is to give advise how to and where to.
    First of all try to open your watch yourself and dry it out using dust blower or hair dryer. Do not set hair dryer too warm.
    You have to do this as quick as you can as the water is damaging the movement at the lightning speed.
    For a while I'll try to find a solution how and where to get your watch fixed.

SOURCE: how to work my wrist watch

I found a solution on how to set the time digitally. what I did was got an old watch of mines that had the four push buttons two on each side and read what the four sides said on the old watch because my new watch didn't have any writing on either four sides. So basically the writing was similiar to how to work my new watch. The left button to the bottom was for the MODE, the upper left button was for the LIGHT, the upper right button was for START, and the lower right button was for RESET. I just worked with these buttons now that I had an idea and was able to set my digital part of the watch with a little effort. I hope that this may help someone who is having the similiar problem that I had.

You do not need to send your watch to FOSSIL for repairs. Just find your nearest watch repair shop and ask watchmaker to replace the coil. It will save money as well.

My Bulova wristwatch has had two batteries replaced in the last month and a half. The last one was installed this past Saturday- two days ago. The watch is no longer running.


Hi Maureen, The first thing i would have checked is the battery strap if there is one to make sure it is properly fitted over the battery. Other than that as long as the batteries were from a reputable jeweler, it seem as if you watch may need a movement cleaning and or repair it could possibly be the coil. Most of our watch cleanings run around $80.00 but we do all repairs by estimate. Thank you! Lisa

Rolex presidential second hand not working any tricks


No tricks, take it to a watchmaker. I am assuming it is a real President. The potential to do serious damage here is great. Don't risk trying to fix this yourself.

Is this watch water proof? Could I go for a swim timing myself would the watch be ok or would it destroy the watch?


mcdevito75 here, If your Timex is a quartz watch then NO, water will destroy your watch. If your Timex is a windup, it must say waterproof and even if it does, every 2 years it is adviseable to see a watch repair shop for up dateing the waterproof status of any watch. I would advise not to use your Timex in any large amount of water.

An 'overhaul' as we say in watchmaking refers to completely disassembling your watch, repairing or replacing parts as necessary, cleaning the movement in a machine designed for cleaning watches, reassembly, regulating the timekeeping to the best of the watches ability, polishing or cleaning the case and band and possibly replacing the crystal if necessary. It varies slightly from brand, watchmaker, quartz or mechanical, pocket or wrist but generally this is what an overhaul refers to. It is a complete refurbishment of your watch.

I have a Timex expedition chronograh. Every thin


The nice thing about Timex is they have a 12 month warranty that covers just about everything. If you have had the watch longer....
Get the batteries checked. Battery life is typically about 2 years.
If the battery is fine then you can try having the watch reset but in most cases the LCD board or circuit board is damaged the watch has to be replaced to have it function correctly.
