How can I changw the glass for this watch?


In order to replace the crystal on your watch you are going to have to remove the entire movement and use a watch press to remove the crystal.
this is not an easy job and should be done by a professional
First you will need to get a watch back opener to unscrew the back of your Tag. The three slots should fit into the back of the watch. tighten the opener until it is firmly on. then turn counter close wise until back of case comes off.
Next you will need to remove the watch hand and crown. Becareful doing this for pressing to hard will break your set leveler. You will need a thin pin pusher and look on the back of the movement for an arrow pointing toward a hole in the movement. Push down and at the same time pull the stem and crown out of movement. turn the watch right side up and the watch movement should fall out. Place movement on a very safe spot so not to damage movement or dial
now you will you be ready to remove crystal Since it is a friction crystal you will need to do use a watch case press . find two die that fit exactly the watch and crystal use a scooped side and place it on the bottom side of the watch press. Next use a flat die to place on top of the case press. place the watch face down. you will be pushing the watch crystal out from the top. Press down on the level and check to see if the crystal came loose, keep doing so till the crystal comes out.
finally you will need to measure the thickness and diameter of the crystal and find the exact size. I believe this watch has a sapphire crystal so you will need a sapphire crystal too.
Once you buy the proper crystal it is time to put the it in the watch. Place the watch face up in your watch press. and slip the crystal in through the top making sure its perfectly even all around. Slowly push down on the leveler until proper pressure is applied and the crystal snaps in.
Now you have new crystal . Clean crystal thoroughly and the inside of the case. Place watch upside down carefully place movement back in. slide spacer in . Now slide watch stem and crown back in push down again on the set leveler with pin pusher.
Place case cover on back and tighten properly to prevent water or moisture from entering and you are done.
This repair should be done by a professional especially on such a nice watch. Any watchmaker can do this job and will have the tools to do it properly

I went to put a new battery in a LACOSTE model or part number 2000308 ladies leather strap watch only to find that there was no movement at all ???? what movement and spacer if any do I need


A watch with no movement in it is probably a salesman's sample or display model. These are often distributed to stores as part of a larger display. In addition to missing a movement, you should also check to see whether the hands have been glued in place. This is also often done because, without a movement, the hands would just flop around instead of staying in an attractive position.
Watch movements come in a variety of standard sizes and shapes. However, a standard ladies watch movement (made by many manufacturers) would probably fit your watch case. This size movement is today used in much larger watches, too; the movement is simply anchored by an appropriate spacer.
A jeweler advertising watch repair should be able to offer you a price on this job. If the hands have been glued to the dial, it may not be worth "upgrading" the watch because of the additional expense and potential damage to the watch face from getting the hands freed up.
If you're ambitious and want to try it yourself, movements can be found online at a variety of watch supply houses like Otto Frei. You can also buy a cheap new or used watch at a flea market or thrift store and use the movement from that. You might be able to re-purpose the spacer in that watch, too, by trimming it to fit your watch case. The major stumbling point here is that watch stems--i.e., the stem on which the setting crown is located--are usually custom-cut in length to match a specific case, and the one you select may be too long or too short for your case. A watch repair place should be able to replace the stem and crown for you, if you need that service. Trimming an overly-long stem is a very simple and cheap procedure; replacing the stem requires a new stem, which will add to the cost of the repair.

How do you change the battery in a black dice flow watch


You need to open watch case back using appropriate tools. There are two batteries in this model - one for each watch movement. Unscrew/un-clip battery contact. Memorize polarity (+ and -). Take the battery to your nearest watch battery shop or watch repair shop and buy the same one. Fit new battery back in watch (remember polarity!). Fit back contact as it was. Close the watch case back. Set the time. Done.

I have a columbia womans watch cell number is CL1028. I am looking to buy a cell for it,and I do not know how to get the back off.


Watch cases are opened with multiple size, strength, and thickness blades, or by a screwback tool.

Many modern watch cases that are "snap" cases are such a tight fit that I recommend you see a Certified Master Horologist who has a crystal press to make sure that the case goes back together properly. Also, if the watch is worn in water, you will want to make sure that it is pressure tested so that the movement is not ruined by exposure to the water.

Some cases now fit so tightly that special tool and mallet must be used with direct force to open the case.

I recommend Energizer batteries only, since I have never seen them leak in a movement.

How do you remove the back to replace the battery. Does the back unscrew or does it snap off.


if its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in . Then you have to carefully force the knife inside and wiggle it up and down till it pops off. Be very careful you can cut yourself doing this or even damage the watch by slipping the blade inside and ruining the movement.

If it has a screw back you would see notches on the back of the case going around the diameter usually 6 or so notches. There you would need a special watch opener tool that fits into those holes and would unscrew it.

I would recommend taking it to a fast fix or batteryplus for about 7 dollars you can have them replace it. That way you can prevent yourself from ruining your watch or hurting yourself.

if you do open the watch up be careful not to touch the copper coil if you scratch that you will ruin the movement and need that replaced. if its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in .

My Luminox Alarm Chronograph seems to work in all respects but the alarm doesn't beep, nor do I get a beep when I set the alar. Might it be the battery??


It can be the battery if your watch model has separate battery for alarm function. If your watch originally is running on one battery, then check out if the sound transmitter spring is missing. Sound is transmitted through the coil spring or small peace of metal which is sticking upwards out of movement, so, when the case back is fitted to the case, the spring is touching sound membrane inside the case back, thus enabling transmit vibrations (sound). If there is nothing as I just described, you will need to get one and fit it to the movement. If there is such a spring, then movement has micro electric fault and should be fixed. In both cases you have to visit your nearest watchmaker and ask for help.
Rate me, plz.

Need a new watch movement


I am not sure which Vincente model you have but I can tell you that the movements for those are Swiss made. That may not seem like much but there's not a lot of info on them.
Chances are it's an ETA movement and if not there's an ETA movement that should fit it. ETA is one of the top Swiss movement makers around. You will find their movements in more watch over $1500 then I care to mention. You should be able to get a movement for around $150 plus installation. You will need to go to a watch repair shop so find a good one.
Hope this helps.

How do you open the case for a Bucherer automatic watch?


I would suggest taking this watch to your local Jeweler, a mom and pop Jeweler if there is one close to you and have them look at it. They most generally don't charge anything to look at it. Then they could give you an estimate if needed, to fix it. Without seeing this watch it's hard to say however automatic, have you tried gently rocking it back and forth, some of these watches do not wind up just wearing them with the movements of your arm keeps them ticking.
