Screen is broken


If the glass or which is referred to the crystal is broken a repair from a professional is needed. The gasket that the crystal fits into may be damaged and if it is held in with a variety of adhesives this can be challenging as well. If the actual screen is damaged where the liquid quartz numbers have been compromised then it is a factory job and would have to go to the factory.

Watch glossary: N, O, P, Q.


NIVAROX
Trade name (from the producer's name) of a steel alloy, resisting magnetization, used for modern self-compensating balance springs. The quality level of this material is indicated by the numeral following the name in decreasing value from 1 to 5.
OBSERVATORY CHRONOMETER
An observatory-tested precision watch that obtained the relevant rating chronometer certificate.
OSCILLATION
Complete oscillation or rotation movement of the balance, formed by two vibrations.
PALLETS
Device of the escapement transmitting part of the motive force to the balance, in order to maintain the amplitude of oscillations unchanged by freeing a tooth of the escape wheel at one time.
PERPETUAL CALENDAR see calendar, perpetual
PILLAR-PLATE or MAIN PLATE
Supporting element of bridges and other parts of a movement.
PINION
Combines with a wheel and an arbor to form a gear. A pinion has less teeth than a wheel and transmits motive force to a wheel. Pinion teeth (normally 6 to 14) are highly polished to reduce friction to a minimum.
PIVOT
End of an arbor turning on a jewel support. As their shape and size can influence friction, the pivots of the balance-staff are particularly thin and, hence, fragile, so they are protected by a shockproof system.
PLATED
Metal, treated by a galvanizing procedure in order to apply a slight layer of gold or another precious metal (silver, chromium, rhodium or palladium) on a brass or steel base.
PLEXIGLAS
A synthetic resin used for watch crystal.
POINçON DE GENEVE
Distinction assigned by the Canton of Geneva to movements produced by watchmaker firms of the Region and complying with all the standards of high horology with respect to craftsmanship, small-scale production, working quality, accurate assembly and setting. The Geneva Seal is engraved on at least one bridge and shows the Canton's symbol, i.e. a two-field shield with an eagle and a key respectively in each field.
POLISHED FINISH
Brilliant metal surface obtained on the watch case with fine abrasive. Compare to brushed finish.
POWER RESERVE
Duration (in hours) of the residual functioning autonomy of a movement after it has reached the winding peak. The duration value is displayed by an instantaneous indicator: analog (hand on a sector) or digital (through a window). The related mechanism is made up of a series of gears linking the winding barrel and hand. Recently, specific modules were introduced which may be combined with the most popular movements.
PRECISION
Accuracy rate of a watch, a term difficult to define exactly. Usually, a precision watch is a chronometer whose accuracy-standard is certified by an official watch-rating bureau.
PULSIMETER CHRONOGRAPH
The pulsimeter scale shows, at a glance, the number of pulse beats per minute. The observer releases the chronograph hand when starting to count the beats and stops at the 30th, the 20th or the 15th beat according to the basis of calibration indicated on the dial.
PUSHER, PUSH-PIECE or PUSH-BUTTON
Mechanical element mounted on a case for the control of specific functions. Generally, pushers are used in chronographs, but also with other functions.
PVD
Abbreviation of Physical Vapor Deposition, a plating process consisting of the physical transfer of substance by bombardment of electrons.
QUARTZ
The quartz movement uses the famously stable vibration frequency of a quartz crystal subjected to electronic tension (usually 32,868 Hz) as its norm. The fact that a quartz-controlled second hand jumps to the tact of each second is a concession to the use of outside energy. This technical revolution found its way to the world's wrists in the late 1960s. This was a principally Swiss invention - the first working quartz wristwatches were manufactured by Girard-Perregaux and Piaget as the result of an early joint venture within the Swiss watch industry, but the Japanese (primarily Seiko) came to dominate the market with new technology.
QUARTZ MOVEMENT
A movement powered by a quartz crystal. Quartz crystals are very accurate. They can be mass produced which makes them less expensive than most mechanical movements which require a higher degree craftsmanship.

Tip

Watch glossary: G, H, I, J, K.


GENEVA SEAL, see poinçon de Geneve.
GLASS, see also crystal
Thin plate of glass or transparent synthetic material, for protecting the dial of the watch.
GLUCYDUR
Bronze and beryllium alloy used for high-quality balances. This alloy assures high elasticity and hardness values; it is non-magnetic, rustproof and has a very reduced dilatation coefficient, which makes the balance very stable and assures high accuracy of the movement.
GMT
Abbreviation for Greenwich Mean Time. As a feature of watches, it means that two or more time zones are displayed. In this case, the second time may be read from a hand making a full rotation in a 24-hour ring (thereby also indicating whether it is a.m. or p.m. in that zone).
GONG
Harmonic flattened bell in a steel alloy, generally positioned along the circumference of the movement and struck by hammers to indicate time by sounds. Size and thickness determine the resulting note and tone. In watches provided with minute-repeaters, there are often two gongs and the hammers strike one note to indicate hours, both notes together to indicate quarters and the other note for the remaining minutes. In more complex models, equipped also with en-passant sonnerie devices, there may be up to four gongs producing different notes and playing even simple melodies (such as the chime of London's Big Ben).
GUILLOCHE
Decoration of dials, rotors or case parts consisting of patterns made by hand or engine-turned. By the thin pattern of the resulting engravings - consisting of crossing or interlaced lines - it is possible to realize even complex drawings. Dials and rotors decorated in this way are generally in gold or in solid silver.
HAMMER
Steel or brass element used in movements provided with a repeater or alarm sonnerie. It strikes a gong or bell (s).
HAND
Indicator for the analogue visualization of hours, minutes and seconds as well as other functions. Normally made of brass (rhodium-plated, gilded or treated otherwise), but also steel or gold. Hands are available in different shapes and take part in the aesthetic result of the whole watch.
HARDLEX CRYSTAL
is Seiko's trademarked name for a hardened mineral crystal.
HEART-PIECE
Heart-shaped corn, generally used to realign the hands of chronograph counters.
HELIUM VALVE
Valve inserted in the case of some professional diving watches to discharge the helium contained in the air mixture inhaled by divers.
HEXALITE
An artificial glass made of a plastic resin. Back in the 1960's, many watches used either mineral glass or acrylic crystals. These are not difficult to scratch, but very inexpensive to replace. Now though, most all luxury watches use the highly scratch resistant synthetic sapphire crystals, there are some styles/brands that use the Hesalite (a name brand of fine acrylic crystal). The reason for this is directly related to the watch's certification for use in space or in high stress/impact situations. While sapphire crystals are less prone to scratching, they can be shattered. When shattered, they break into tiny fragments that would be hazardous in some environments. So the Hesalite crystal is maintained on some specific models as a safety feature.
HUNTER CALIBER
A caliber characterized by the seconds hand fitted on an axis perpendicular to the one of the winding stem.
INCABLOC, see shockproof.
JEWEL
Precious stone used in movements as a bearing surface. Generally speaking, the steel pivots of wheels in movements turn inside synthetic jewels (mostly rubies) lubricated with a drop of oil. The jewel's hardness reduces wear to a minimum even over long periods of time (50 to 100 years). The quality of watches is determined mainly by the shape and finishing of jewels rather than by their number (the most refined jewels have rounded holes and walls to greatly reduce the contact between pivot and stone).
JUMPING HOUR
Feature concerning the digital display of time in a window. The indication changes almost instantaneously at every hour.
KINETIC
Refers to the Seiko line of Kinetic watches. This innovative technology has a quartz movement that does not use a battery. Movement of the wrist charges a very efficient capacitor which powers the quartz movement. Once the capacitor is fully charged, men's models will store energy for 7-14 days without being worn. Ladies models store energy for 3-7 days. Of course, if the watch is worn every day the capacitor is continually recharged. The watch alerts the owner to a low capacitor charge when the seconds hand starts to move in two second intervals. Some of Seiko's Kinetic Watches have See-Thru CaseBacks, that use a clear, Hardlex crystal watch back to enable the wearer to view the kinetic movement.
KINETIC AUTO RELAY
A Seiko Kinetic Auto Relay watch is powered by human movement, however when it senses inactivity for three days, it puts itself into suspended animation to conserve energy. It can be re-activated with a few shakes of the wrist. It automatically resets itself to the exact time after to up to four years of dormancy.

Can't press the back of the watch back on after replacing the battery - Do I need a jewelers press?


A jeweler's press provides an equal amount of force around the edges of the watch back without putting that same pressure on the watch crystal (which could cause it to crack or break). If you have a flat crystal, you might have success in putting the watch between two pieces of wood and using a regular vice to very gently push the front and back together. However, you risk doing damage to your watch crystal.
Your safest bet may be to go to a jewelry store or jewelry counter in a department store and ask if they could close the back for you with the proper tool. You may have to tip them a few dollars, but that is still far cheaper than the cost of replacing a broken watch crystal.

I have an Everstar VC 356 vacuum and I need a replacement part. Where can I go to find replacement parts for this unit? Thank you! Katheryn Myers


I also have a VC 356 vacuum by Everstar. I've been happy with the performance of this little machine but the wand/pipe that conects the hose to the floor attachments is broken. I cannont seem to find the parts or a manufacturers website. I have little choice except to duct tape the wand where the two pieces fit together. The adjusting lock has broken and appears to be of poor design and materials.

How does the swiss eta g10.211 quartz chronograph work


Hello,
I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking how this particular quartz movement operates?

All Quartz movements are pretty much the same operational wise. They can vary greatly in materials used for construction and number of jewels.

At it's basic a quartz watch uses a piece of quartz crystal called a transistor oscillator to vibrate a tuning fork. This vibration is a is brought down by micro processors to a meaningful number then converted into mechanical energy trough the movement and hands.

In the case of a chronograph it means more internal gears and jewels.
Although this is a good movement it is the low side of middle of the road.

The G10.211 is an analog display of hours and measured time. These include hours, minutes and a small jumping second as 6 o'clock. Mechanical date and counters for 1/10 second, 60 seconds and 30 minutes with "ADD" and 'SPLIT" functions. Operated by 2 push buttons.
It has 6 jewels.

If you want to know something more specific please just ask.
Hope this helps.

No water comes out of the wand


First, you must be sitting on it before it will work. Their should be a separate valve for the bidet function, be sure it is turned on. Also check that the seat is installed properly and the quick release "snaps" into place. These are the most common problems if they don't fix it let me know.
