SOURCE: how do i remove crown?

Hi, on the back of the movement there should either be a screw or a dimple in line or next to the line of the stem. If a dimple, press in with a pin or similar sturdy tool and gently withdraw the stem. If a screw, only one turn should be enough to release the stem

SOURCE: remove the winding stem/crown.

There is a tiny point (end of small metal piece called setting lever) on the left side of the stem (on watch movement, very close where the stem is entering the movement).
You have to push that point down with a metal pin or tweezers. Crown (winder) must be pushed in to normal position otherwise you will not be able to put the stem back properly.
So, do as follows:
1) Push the crown in,
2) Lay the watch down on flat surface and push on setting lever point,
3) While holding setting lever pushed in- extract the setting lever by gently pulling crown out of watch.

The red bead (?) on the stem of my Michele CSX watch came off and was lost.How do I get a replacement? Thank you. Patty


I also chipped the enamel on the crown. You should take it to the place you purchased it and they will send it to Michele (actually Fossil) for repair. I had my Michele for 5 years before sending it in to have the crown repaired and have since lost the stem. Prior to that first repair, I did not have any issues with my watch. I really think that the parts used on my watch for the first repair were shotty. Very disappointing, but what do you do?

I have a F ossil Arkitekt (fs-2990) that is a several years old. I removed the back and the battery to change out the battery and noticed that one of the numeral bars on the face has dislodged itself. in...


The knob that adjusts the time is called the crown, and it will have a stem attached to it. You will need to remove crown and stem together.
If it's a screw-down crown, unscrew it.
Examine the watch mechanism very carefully while pulling out the crown (as if you were adjusting the time) and pushing it back, What you are looking for is basically anything that moves. If you do see parts of the mechanism move, look very carefully around that area for an arrow mark impressed in the metal pointing to a small dip in one of the metal parts.Often, this is on a tiny lever but not all manufacturers bother with the arrow.
Ensure that the crown is pushed back to it's normal position. Put a tiny amount of pressure on the dip (a needle is ideal for this), and carefully attempt to pull out crown and stem.You may need to apply slightly more pressure to get a result, but please take care not to press too hard or you may damage the mechanism.
Hopefully, that should sort it out. To refix the numeral bar, I'd recommend super glue - but you only need a tiny, tiny amount. Apply it with the tip of a needle and you shouldn't go far wrong.
Once you're looking at reassembly, you should be able to reinsert the crown and stem without depressing the dip but do it gently and don't force it - it may need a slight turn to relocate properly before it slides back in.

I hope this was easy to follow - get back in touch if you get stuck.

The hands have come off my fossil FS3087 wrist watch. I would like to know how to take off the glass in order to fix it myself. Thank you


mcdevito75 here, In most cases the glass (crystal) come off or out thru the back of the watch which means you"ll have to remove the quartz mechanism, and that means removeing the stem, thse quartz stems are very prone to breaking while being removed form the quatrz mechanism and the cost of a repair may be more expensive then a whole new watch, shop around get a price from a small watch repair shop on repair verses a new Fossil watch.

How do I remove the crown/stem to take the watch movement out of the case? thanks Marc


To remove the stem you must first loosen the set lever screw, then you can pull the stem out.
You only need to turn the set lever screw a couple turns to release the stem. Some movements use a button instead and in that case you would simply push the button down lightly with a pointed tool and while holding the button down pull the stem out.
For watches with one-piece cases where the movement comes out the dial side and the case has no removable back, you will not be able to get at the set lever screw. For this type of watch you must grasp the crown firmly and pull it out, or use plastic or soft brass tweezers to get behind the crown and pop it off. These watches have two-piece stems that have male and female ends that snap together. Then remove the bezel and let the movement come out into your hands. Then remove the hands and the dial and put the movement face down into a movement holder.

I hope you have Omega Dynamic?!

If yes, then the crown can be removed by appling slight pressure against the watch. The stem inside the watch is made of 2 pieces and the crown can be pulled out. But be careful, there are chances that the stem may break :-)

Missing piece?


You are not missing anything. The stem (metal bar, wich is going into movement) from the crown (you say knob) is broke. The stem is made of one piece and screws directly into crown. You've been unfortunate to brake it and the tiny end of stem still in the crown - the rest looks OK , but actually it is what's left of the stem. This is not the job you can do yourself, so, find the nearest watchmaker and ask for replacement. Do not forget to rate, please.

New watch..Jules Jurgenson day-date..the stem cap is loose.


remove the cap and put a tiny drop of locktite glue on it. spill some glue onto a piece of glass or an old plate and use a sewing needle to put a tiny drop of glue in the hole then screw it back on and wait till the remaing glue on the glass is gone hard before pushing the stem back in .. this last bit is important so as not to glue the stem to the watch. if this helps please rate me joe

Yoy have to take off the back. Does the back have notches(5 of them) around the back cover? If it does take a pair of needle nose pliers and turn counter-clockwise to loosen. If the back has no notches then there must be a little lip where you have to pry off the back. Look carefully sometimes it is hard to see.. You have to use a sharp strong knife, like a swiss army knife, something that is sharp but has a little meat to it. Once the back is off,look at the movement. Now pull out the crown ( the part for setting the watch) and as you do, look for a metal piece that is in the movement (probibly to the derect left if you are right handed) that has a little dimple and moves as you pull in and out on the crown. Once you find that, use a small pin and LIGHTY push down on the that piece as you pull out the crown. The crown and a long piece should come out (the crown and the stem which are connected) You should be able to take out the movement now. Some advice: don't use super glue, it has gasses in it that will ruin your face of the watch.Maybe a model glue would be better, I being a watchmaker usr jewelers glue. Do not put the movement back in for about a hour just in case of any gasses.When done gently push the stem and crown back in and close the back. If you have any problems,please let me know. Maybe I can walk you through it. Good Luck!!!

The pin used to set the time pulled out completely


The pin you called it is the stem and crown try this technic before you bring or send it to a service center.Put it back where you taken it out ,while puting it in wind the crown and push it gently inside so it locked it up by pushing it gently inside.Check it out if not pulled out again the stem and crown if not and still coming out there something broken inside
