It is a very very rare watch, and is an antique too. If it is in working condition, the cost price will get is unpredictable.

Hello, please could you advise me? I've bought an Ingersoll ladies' diamond watch for 30 pounds from Cash Converters and I need to have the battery replaced to see if it's working. It has a screw back

I would suggest taking your watch in to a local jeweller. They should be able to replace the battery for a few pounds or give you an opinion on other options. A Google search should find several in your area.

Hello- My mother passed away and left me some personal things which include a Cartier watch. It definately looks real. It is water resistant, swiss made with blue hand dials and the number on the back is...

Michael DeVito---PLEASE STOP telling people to take their Cartier to a "watch repair shop" !! If they do that instead of taking it to a Cartier shop, they will destroy the value of the watch. Once it is opened by a non-Cartier shop, Cartier will NOT stand behind it, won't even touch it and they can tell if it's been opened by someone non-Cartier trained. A 'regular' watch opening tool will damage a Cartier. And then pop goes the weasel, the watch is now worthless. Yes, they will destroy a fake that comes in their shop, and that is their right to do so; it protects the value of all those folks who have REAL Cartiers and paid big money for them. I'm sure you mean to help, but please, please stop saying "take it to a watch repair shop; you are advising these people to ruin their very valuable watches ! Anyone who has a Cartier can 'Google' Cartier website, click on U.S., then find a store near you & call them to discuss your watch. They'll be happy to help. A tune-up for your Cartier costs roughly $65.00 in a Cartier boutique, you should do that if you've bought a used one. No, I don't work for Cartier, but I own one and despise that so much bad information is out here about these watches. A genuine Cartier is not just an investment but a responsibility. Hoping this helps someone.

I have a very similar watch to this, except that the face has diamante style stones all the way around the outside. I cannot remove the watch from my wrist - the sales assistant did not show me how! Please...

All watches have clasps to open/release the watch at the rear of the watch look for slight indention and with your thumb and 2nd finger nail pull towatds you and this will release the clasp and to remove you take the clasp out of its gate andwall your watch is released.

Automatic watch quit working. Please advise

Try swinging if backward and forward 100-200 times to wind it up.

Winder on Rotary watch

Open the watch and lay it on the table dial down and winder facing you.
Get the hard steel needle and push down the small metal piece next to the to the place where the stem is entering the movement (on the left side). Pull out the stem while holding that piece down.
If thhat piece looks like screw cap (with the groove), then you have to unscrew it in order to get the stem out.
Do not forget to rate, please.
