Question about Vostok Watches

Open Question

Vostok Amfibia Black Sea Automatic Watch has stopped working.

I have a Vostok Amfibia Black Sea Automatic Watch. The watch is approx. 18 months old and has stopped working. If I set the time it runs for an hour or two and then stops. I have tried moving my wrist etc. which seems to keep it running for a while but then it just stops. The watch has worked fine since I bought it albeit sometimes running a little fast. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: Tissot wrist watch goingin reverse since new battery fitted

bikie,
It would be easier to tell you more if the age of the watch was posted, but not knowing that I am going to assume it is less then 3 yrs old and in good shape. He goofed! Never be afraid of asking someones experience level when working on something that belongs to you, find out if they are just a clerk in a jewelry store and are getting paid minimum wage and care more about their paycheck then your watch, OR if they have been doing it forever and care if you come back again! "IF" the watch is older then I assumed, or in questionable condition (a few bumps and scratches) then it may have nothing to do with the fact that the battery was just replaced, it really could be it's "time" to expire, pardon the pun!

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Wrist Watch unable to remove link

First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!

Hope it'll help.

Regards

Arthur

SOURCE: watch goes slow when wearing

There is nothing wrong with your watch. Probably it's the one measuring heart rate and pulse (heart beats per second).
Use your users manual to set the watch.
By the way: Timex is one of the worst watch producers.

Hi, I've got a automatic tag aquaracer watch that loses about 4 mins every month (about 4 yrs old). Common problem? Can this be fixed ? Or is it a lemon of a watch? Any advice welcome. Cheers.


If it's automatic and 4 years old, it's probably time for a watch overhaul. Auotmatic watches need overhauled about once every 4-5 years. It's normal for it to lose time, but 4 minutes per month may be a little extreme. So, get the watch overhauled. I would recommend Tag Heuer to overhaul it.

I have a new longines automatic chronigraph watch that stops running after approx. 24 hours when not being worn. Any suggestions


The battery may be near diplition and is not unusual given the length of time it can take for a watch to sell, but at any rate it needs to be returned for a possible exchange.

MY K3 WATCH HAS STARTED TO STOP AFTER ABOUT A MINUTE AND NEEDS A SHAKE TO START IT AGAIN do you know where to contact for repairs in the uk


Since your watch is an automatic type, it will stop if it is not worn.

Shake it gently side to side for a few minutes to fully wind it up and it should work for a day or two.

This type of watch needs to be worn daily to keep it wound up.

If you still have problems, then try following this link to the UK dealer http://www.sovietwatches.co.uk/index.php?app=gbu0&ns=contact&sid=cz3i7cljnk4r1os1207uy2xqk5gz839r

I have an aquatech watch and don't know how to set it.


Thank you for contactng FixYa.
Setting the Time and Date
  • To set the time and date on your Aquatech watch, begin by pressing the "Mode" button three times to access the time setting screen. Use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the hour on your watch. Use the "Start/Stop" button to advance the numbers to reach the correct hour. When you've set the hour, use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the minutes, using the "Start/Stop" button to advance to the correct minute. Repeat the procedure to set the seconds, month, date and day of the week on your Aquatech watch.
  • Setting an Alarm
  • To set an alarm on your Aquatech watch, begin by pressing the "Mode" button two times to access the alarm setting screen. Use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the hours place, using the "Start/Stop" button to reach the correct hour. Repeat the same procedure to set the minutes for your alarm. When you have finished setting the alarm, activate it by simultaneously holding the "Lap/Reset" and "Start/Stop" buttons until the alarm icon appears. When the alarm sounds, silence it by pressing the "Lap/Reset" button.
  • Deactivating the Hourly Chime
  • Many Aquatech watch models feature an automatic hourly chime. This can be inappropriate and inconvenient in many situations. To deactivate the hourly chime on an Aquatech watch, simply press and hold the "Lap/Reset" and "Mode" buttons simultaneously. After you have correctly deactivated the hourly chime, the hourly chime indicator icon will disappear from the watch's main screen.

    Breitling Colt Kinetic Watch - not working


    I read the instructions for a similar type of watch and while the battery will keep the watch "alive" for some months when not in use, eventually the battery dies.

    Since it is a kinetic watch the instructions I read said that you should gently shake the watch about 500 times to recharge the battery!

    If you give it a good shake and then wear it for a few days, it should recharge itself, although it may have forgotten the time and may need re-setting.

    Good luck!

    I need spare part for my k3 submarine watch: I need Screw Down Case Pipe + Crown. Where can I find it in Australia?


    Assuming that these parts are unique to your make of watch, then according to their web site there are no distributors in Austrailia.

    If you go to their web site (www.vostok-europe.com/), you will see a map of the world and the countries that have distributors are shown in red.

    Your nearest distributor is in Indonisia but you could just a easily order one from an English speaking country (to increase the chances of getting what you want!)
