Hi Tarynlarson,

Ok this can be done by GENTLY pulling out the crown till you hear or feel 2 clicks. Sometimes the crown has to unwound first, as you have not mentioned a specific model I am trying to be through.

Then you canjust rotate the crown and the hands should move and you can get it to the desired time.

When you have finished simply rescrew the crown back down.

Hope this helps?

I replaced the battery and can't get the back plate back on the watch, what am I doing wrong

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Hmmm I dont know if you are doing anything"wrong". It really is difficult to determine not knowing the watch. I would try to take to a local jeweler to have them take a look first. They may be able to assist you.

JoJo Glory watch
You can send it via instructions given above, or take to a local jeweler. They will be able to pull out the old battery to see what it takes. Usually is less then $15 to have someone else remove and replace.

What kind of battery does the watch need?

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

You have to open your watch caseback and read the numbers on old battery- these would be exactly what you are looking for.
There are plenty of watch batteries sold on ebay and you can buy the right one here: , check in watch parts and tools.
The other way is to pop into your nearest watch repair shop and ask to replace battery(this would be quicker and safer, but dearer).

Pocketwatch quit working

Pocket watches are watches the collect dust (from the pockets they sit in) very easily, so you may have an issue here with that being the cause of why your hands are not moving as they once did. Then again, it could be VERY easily that you went to a place to have them replaced and the battery you purchased was "aged" and no longer has power enough to make the watch function properly. I would suggest that if you replaced it yourself in a place where you bought the battery and went home to put it in, go to a place where they put it in for you as they will overturn the stock much quicker. If the clerk is someone of real knowledge they will even be able to tell you "we sell a 20 of that one every week" or something of that nature. As I have suggested to others this is the time of year where quality of service for a small watch battery is much less then it will be when you go in in 5 weeks when the store is happy to see someone.

To replace battery of pocket watch

My son has a Timex pocket watch-I just got the back off with a very tiny flat-head screwdriver- the niche or indent you're looking for is almost indiscernible; look very closely, the edge of the back barely deviates from where it meets the edge of the front piece. Looks more like a flaw than an intentional point of entry
