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?

Re: Regulating a wristwatch

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 pay only the exact shipping costs.

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.

My automatic omega watch stops after 20-24 hours eventhough i am promised it should last for 48hours if worn continuously for 48 hours.

Almost all automatic wristwatches made today have an 18-24 hour "power reserve" when fully wound. A 24 hour reserve is actually very, very good. I can't think of a modern self-winding wristwatch that has a 48-hour power reserve because that would require a super-long or much larger mainspring than would fit in a modern watch movement / case. There may be some hand-crafted or super-premium watches that can do this, but only a very select few.
Manual wind railroad pocket watches, which were some of the finest and most accurate mechanical watch movements ever made, generally had a 40-hour power reserve. That extra capacity was created by using a large mainspring to store the extra energy. These mainsprings could be used because of the much larger size of these watches, compared to modern wristwatches.
If you are concerned about keeping your watch ticking, even when you're not wearing it, you might want to look at a "watch winder"--basically, a small watch case that rotates the watch for you, keeping the automatic winding rotor moving and the watch ticking. In addition, sitting at a computer all day will wind your watch much less than walking and otherwise moving around. Even though you're wearing your watch, if you're not moving, you're not winding it.

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.

Hi - took it off for 36 hrs - never had an issue - oyster submariner not moving now ... thanks for your help

This is a mechanical auto-wind watch. It self winds when worn. But if taken off for a couple of days it will have stopped and won't start running again unless it is wound.

Put it on and wear it for a few minutes. This will wind it enough to start it running again. Then set the time and wear it and you'll be fine.

Hope this helps.

How do take off the knob that winds the hands on a wristwatch

The knob doesn't come off. It is attached to the stem, inside the watch. The only way to remove it, is to open the watch, pull the stem out, loosen the plate and move the pawl out of the way of the stem. If you ever want to use the watch again, it's best to have a jeweler or watchmaker do it.
