Best to go to a bulova dealer to get the original fitted as its most likely the stem is sheered of inside the old crown if however it has just unscrewed from the stem any good watchmaker should be able to refit it and reseal it

My crown for my bulova precisionist watch won't screw down


It is possible a tiny gasket is inside the tread... needing to be REPLACED before proceeding.

First check to see if it is a "left-hand" or "right-hand"
threaded CROWN... Then check that there is no damage to the STEM or the CROWN... You will need at least a 10x (power) jeweler's loupe to see that.

If you have any damage... A watchmaker might be able to dress the treads and save the ORIGINAL PARTS...

Else you are probably looking at replacing both the stem & crown...

Winder for automatic watch


When you wind it manually (forward or clockwise) it winds the mainspring. Only need to watch it 5 or 6 times if it's completely stopped you wearing it will do the rest. If you going to get a automatic winder get one that will wind in both directions. It will give a few revolutions clockwise and then we'll go reverse counterclockwise.
Hope this answers your questions thank you.

Curtis and Co. Big Time 3 zone watch w/ temp gauge. What does the stem positioned at aprox 10 O'clock control? It is near the temp guage but does not seem to control anything.


Crown(stem) at 10 O'clock has air inlet for temperature, does not move. Crown at 8 O'clock is for setting 3rd time zone next to it. The two buttons on the right of the case, above and below, set 2nd time zone which is at the 6 O'clock position of the large dial. To set #2 push top button till min. hand moves 1 min., then push bottom button to move 1 min each time or hold for rapid movement. Large crown sets date and large dial. Unscrew it (counterclockwise) then pull out to first click, then set date turning crown clockwise, continue to pull out till 3rd click which is where you set the time on the large dial.

The date will not change, it will with the crown but when i advance the hands it will not change.


Try to advance hands for full circle more (12 hrs more). If this does not work, then you will have to find your nearest watch repair shop, because one of the date change gear wheels is faulty.
Rate me, plz.

I pulled on the crown and it came off the stem


Do not open the watch yet, as you do not know how to get the stem out.
Take an eyeglass and examine the crown. You will find the small hub in the centre of the crown. If the centre of this hub is hollow and you can see the thread in it- you will be able to screw it back on stem (all watch crowns are screwed on to stems, never pressed).
If the centre of that hub looks filled with metal, then the stem end is broke and you will need replace stem AND crown (the metal filling the hub is the broken end of stem).
In case if the crown still in tact, let me know by asking questions and I'll guide you through all the process HOW TO.

Rate me, please.

Broken stem off aromen gobletover 50yrs old maker bleirristall made in bavaria.germany 24% clear stem any chance of repair have broken pieces was my Mothers passed away meens the world to me please help...


Is the stem broken near the crown? Or do you think there is enough stem to take out of crown? If not you probibly will have to go to a watchmake (NOT a watch repairman) to make you the stem. If there is enough metal to take stem out of the crown you may be able to get someone to solder the stem back together. I do that reguarly with stems that are vintage, and I don't want have the time to remake the whole stem. Let me know. Good Luck!!!!

That's easy. You need to calibrate it. In normal time mode, pull the crown out all the way and then use the pushers to step it back to the zero position. When finished, push the crown back in. You can also calibrate the sub-dails in a similar fashion.
