SOURCE: how do i remove crown?

Hi, on the back of the movement there should either be a screw or a dimple in line or next to the line of the stem. If a dimple, press in with a pin or similar sturdy tool and gently withdraw the stem. If a screw, only one turn should be enough to release the stem

SOURCE: remove the winding stem/crown.

There is a tiny point (end of small metal piece called setting lever) on the left side of the stem (on watch movement, very close where the stem is entering the movement).
You have to push that point down with a metal pin or tweezers. Crown (winder) must be pushed in to normal position otherwise you will not be able to put the stem back properly.
So, do as follows:
1) Push the crown in,
2) Lay the watch down on flat surface and push on setting lever point,
3) While holding setting lever pushed in- extract the setting lever by gently pulling crown out of watch.

How to remove back to change battery in "My Wish" Collezioni watch. No notch for knife and won't screw off.


You should be able to pry it off, just follow this simple steps:
Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches.Get a small flathead screwdriver it needs to be a thin inflexible tip. Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch. These steps are listed on wikihow:

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 pulled the entire crown and stem out of my Rolex President. What is involved in fixing it?


The repair for this problem may be quick and inexpensive--or somewhat more expensive. Either way, it's considered a minor repair.
The crown and stem assembly in held in a Rolex movement by a small pressure screw. When this screw is loosened, the stem can be cleanly pulled out of the movement without damaging any parts. The movement can then be removed from its case. If the screw is too loose, it is sometimes possible to pull the crown and stem out with ordinary effort. The simple fix for this would be to have a watchmaker take the back off your Rolex (requires a special wrench) and slide the stem back into the watch while loosening and re-tightening the screw. If that's it, the repair takes about 5 minutes, most of which is spent removing and replacing the watch back.
Things can get more complicated. The set stem interacts with a thin sheet metal spring / detent that helps the stem "snap" to its various set and wind positions. Sometimes, when a stem gets pulled out, the force of that can snap the delicate little finger in this watch part. Replacing this watch part will require that the movement be removed from the case and the hands and dial be removed for access to the part. Once you get to it, the part itself can easily be replaced--it's designed to be replaced without disassembling the whole watch movement--but there's considerably more effort involved than just sliding the stem back in and tightening down the screw.

How to remove stem to get to battery in ebel ladies watch?


On my men's classic wave, the stem is removed simply by pulling it out. It feels like it's requiring a lot of force, but it is designed to have resistance so that it's not pulled out accidentally when setting the time.
So to change the battery, you remove the 5 faceplate screws, remove the crystal and gasket, pull out the stem and then the whole face/movement assembly will pull forward.
NOT positive yours is the same, but that's how my men's Classic Wave is. Good luck!

The winding stem came out when i was trying to set time formula 1


I would advise you to take it to an authorised dealer (see the Tag Heuer web site (www.tagheuer.com) ) and let them sort out why the stem came out. I feel sure that this shouldn't happen and it is likely that a repair is needed.

(It may be that something that restricts the movement of the stem has become detached. If this is so, then something may be moving about inside).

I have a ladies Philip Stein, w, double movement. Tried to buff crystal. Now neither movement is working. Batteries are OK


If the stems are in the time positon and the batteries are ok what probably happened is extreme heat. You tried to polish a mineral crystal and it got hot. The only type of crystal you can polish is acrylic. Most of these models come with mineral crystal or scratch proof sapphire crystal. I recommend going to a watch maker/technician and having the movements replaced. A reputable watch maker/technician will be pretty reasonable.

Find watch numbers, seamaster automatic


I hope you have Omega Dynamic?!

If yes, then the crown can be removed by appling slight pressure against the watch. The stem inside the watch is made of 2 pieces and the crown can be pulled out. But be careful, there are chances that the stem may break :-)

How do you open the case for a Bucherer automatic watch?


I would suggest taking this watch to your local Jeweler, a mom and pop Jeweler if there is one close to you and have them look at it. They most generally don't charge anything to look at it. Then they could give you an estimate if needed, to fix it. Without seeing this watch it's hard to say however automatic, have you tried gently rocking it back and forth, some of these watches do not wind up just wearing them with the movements of your arm keeps them ticking.
