The item is a Kid-Riffic #3818. It is a watch sized time piece with radio transmitter from a young boys spy kit. What size and how many batteries does it use? The battery compartment is about 1/2 in diameter and appears to hold more than one battery. Thanks

These watches typically use disc batteries available at radio shack stores, among others. Take it to a radio shack store and ask them to install the batteries for you.

My atomic watch is 5 minutes slow, do not know how to change the time to the correct setting


I would suspect that your watch is not picking up the radio signal to reset itself to the correct time. There are several reasons for this - the battery might be very low, or you are in a poor reception area, or you are just too far from the transmitter, or the hands need realigning. If the watch claims to pick up multiple transmitters, then be sure that it is set to the correct one. Try taking off the watch at night and placing it face-up on a window sill to give it the best chance of a signal.
I can't offer anything other than general advice as you do not give the make/model of your timepiece. Some radio-controlled watches have a facility to realign (or 'zero') the hands - again, can't be specific without more information.

My watch no longer works because a discontinued part needs to be replaced. Can another time piece replace it as long as it fits in the time face?


Yes it can as long as it is a traditional wind up or an automatic timepiece. A watchmaker can replace the movement with another of the same size.

How do you remove JARAGAR watch links?


Most likely it is going to be with a needle press... available on both eBay & AMAZON... but unless you are planning on having a lot of wrist size changes... or a large collection of HIGH END watches...
You would be better off to take it to a serious jeweler

Can you please tell me how to remove links on my le cheatau ceramic watch?


Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.

But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
  • Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
  • Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
  • Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
  • Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
  • Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.

The plastic piece that keeps the battery in place is broken.(F16059/4) is the watch


mcdevito75 here, This is a piece of plastic is used betwen the battery and the back cover of the watch as without the plastic there is a small gap between the battery and the back cover, meaning the battery could come loose in the watch even with the back cover on the watch, replace this plastic piece with some carefully folded Scotch Tape, cut and shape the Scotch tape to Approx. the same size and thicknesss of this piece of plastic or just by sight thick enough to keep the battery in place in the watch with the back cover on.

Pins keep popping out when watch band gets snagged. What size are the pins for watch band?


mcdevito75 here, These pins may be a bit worn in the band of your watch, if so, you"d have to order a kit with various size pins for replacement. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop to fit new pins in the band.
