Regulating a wristwatch

My Sekonda self-winding watch is running slow. There seem to be two adjusters - a larger one with jewel in centre and a much smaller one - both seeming to point to a (+ -) scale. Do you move both levers, or what?

I would not recommend that you regulate the watch yourself. The risk of damage is too great.I would be happy to regulate it for you. This is a service that I offer my customers free of charge.you pay only the exact shipping costs.

I have a folio 21 jewels limited addition watch. I dont know how to wiend it. And I need to know what its worth.


I have no idea of the value.
You say that it's self-winding, but that you don't know how to wind it? Just wear it - the movement of the arm and wrist winds the watch. If the watch is fully wound down then it may take a while for the watch to have enough power to restart. Some automatics will allow you to wind the watch in the normal way with the crown.

The practical answer is to take your watch to a jeweler who will not only open it but probably will install a replacement battery for a reasonable charge.

IT IS AN ORVIS AUTOMATIC AND IT STARTS AND STOPS AND DOESN'T KEEP CORRECT TIME.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
When you first receive your automatic watch, you must give the watch an initial pre-wind. If you wear it everyday, it will continue to wind itself on your wrist when you move around and walk. If you stop wearing it for more than approximately 2 days, the watch will need to be reset, but will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again. The disadvantage to this is pretty clear. Your watch does not t keep time if you do not wear it constantly. The advantages are that you will never have to replace a battery, the watch keeps great time when it is running, and most of all, this type of movement is exactly what the originals use! If your Automatic is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period the watch needs to be adjusted. All of our automatics have an adjustment screw on the movement just like the originals. Any local jeweler can service these watches.
Best regards! Jewel

How do i remove the back on my sekonda mens watch


mcdevito75 here, Generally thr back is simply pryed off useing a sharp knife (steak) or with a case opener, or at times the back is screwed on, little square holes around the back of the watch require a special tool, or there may be 4 screws holding down the back to the case, even if you get the back off you may need Jewelers screwdrivers to remove / replace the battery. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area.

Vintage Caravelle runs fast


A quick look at ebay shows plenty of Bulova watches and only a few looking for a worthwhile price.

I think if you have it repaired for sale it probably won't be worth the effort or expense. If the watch has sentimental or nostalgia value to you I think that is what would make it worth getting a good watchmaker to look at it.
