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

Old pocket watch Waltham what year & what it is worth Serial no. 8085585 American Watch Co.


Your watch is a 1896 model, manufactured near the end of the production runs for that year. Check this link to verify Waltham Pocket Watch age, and manufacturing info:

http://www.pocketwatchsite.com/walthamserials.html

Get a copy of the "Complete Price Guide to Watches by Cooksey Shugart", and check out pricing for thousands of watches. I've found that many of the common Walthams and Elgins for that series will be valued between 75-250.00 for standard production runs. If the watch is rare and has a 14 k or 18K gold case, then the sky is the limit, depending upon condition and the actual weight of gold in the case, and/or movement.

Have a waltham pocket watch in an illinois case enameled dial with a recessed seconds dial at bottom with a numeric 6. seconds on face also. can't find year or pic of this watch


If you go to the web site "www.antique-pocket-watch.com/waltham-pocket-watch.html", you will find information about Waltham watches and if you read the serial number off the movement (open the back and read it off the back plate), you may be able to find out the year of manufacture.

Trying to identify an English watchmaker


No solution, but can give you information on Henry Stuart, as he is part of my family history. 1803 Liverpool - 1882 Oxton Cheshire when still described as a watchmaker. Making watches from at least 1825, in Park Lane Liverpool & later in Coventry too, but business suffered from the advent of cheap Swiss watches. Specialised in very beautiful cases, we are led to believe.

Some of the numbers on my relic pocket watch fell off.


Unfortunately you will not be able to get the watch glass off without braking it. Watch glasses usually are friction set or glued into the watch bezel using special press or special glue. Both are of such a good quality, that it is allmost impossible to remove the glass without special equipment.
You can try, of course, but it will be on your own risk.
The best way is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help.
