You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: watch will not stay running

Most likely time to replace the capacitor with a new Lithium Ion battery. This is the correct way to fix this problem. No one uses the old capacitors any more. I do this repair daily as a Certified Master Horologist/watch repair man. Ron at TimelyWatchRepair.com

SOURCE: my Bulova time piece is great, but the crystal is

Moisture has probably got inside the watch. Try leaving it in a warm place for a day or two. If the problem persists, then it means taking it to a service agent for clearing (see Boluva.com, to find their nearest agant).

SOURCE: Can anyone recommend me a good firm in Toronto that deals with crystal glass awards?

For crystal glass awards, it will be the deal of Hoult hellewell that suits you more than anyone else. We are in deal with them for more than three years. I have nothing to quote about other than their excellence. It will be surely worth looking into.

The gold trim box around the day/date feature of my Seiko 5 SNZH57 has come out. It now slides around under the crystal, and the hands catch on it. can I remove the crystal? Can it be replaced so it does...


You will need to remove the back of your watch and the movement to do this, don't remove the crystal... I usually just take the surround out but it can be glued back in place. Being a divers watch its best to get it done professionally so it can be resealed to ensure its water proof

My Bulova time piece is great, but the crystal is cloudy. Looking straight at it it is clear, but on a angle it is cloudy. None of my other brands does this. Why.

I have a seiko chonograph couturo alarm. 100m


Many of the Seiko Chronographs have the same setting options (mine is the lightweight "Titanium Sports").

First off, the alarm dial must show the same time as the actual main dial. If not you must adjust this first.

Pull the knob at number 4 position on the watch face out, until you feel two distinct notches/clicks (around 0.5mm travel) and the alarm will make a shrill buzzing for about 1 second.

Now turn the #4 knob to move the small alarm dial at the #6, to be the same as the actual time displayed on the main face, and press the #4 knob fully back in. This sets the alarm and the main time to the same ....er....time. You do not need to do this again, unless you adjust for daylight saving times during summer/winter.

Now you can set the alarm chime point.

Pull the #4 knob out again, but just one click. You should hear one ping from the alarm. Now press the button at #8 position. It will move the small alarm hands by 1 minute intervals, and if you keep it held in, the dial spins around quickly. This allows you to adjust the time the alarm will chime.

When you've got the alarm time and it's chime point set, leave the #4 knob at one click out.

If you wish to switch the alarm off simply press the #4 knob back in, and the alarm dial will spin around to the same time as the main dial.To re-enable the alarm pull the #4 out one click again. It's quite simple once you get the hang of it.

SEIKO 7D48.... WATCHING SHOWING CORRECT TIME(WORKING PROPERLY).. BUT SECOND HAND NOT MOVING.


Second hand could be stuck against the crystal inside or it is slipping on the shaft. Both of these conditions can be fixed but the case back would have to be removed and the movement removed to fix this problem

Hi ! Why my Seiko automatic ( cal.7S26A ) does not respond to my time adjusting ? Balance and a spiral are in perfect condition, the watch was properly cleaned. Thanks ! Erik


Even you wind the crown the hands not moving or not responding? If this the case then the trouble is in the clutch wheel .Maybe the gear is already breaks thats why it will not respond.
Feel free to ask whatever the results.

Hope its help:
