This depends on what exactly is causing the problem. If the bezel is bent from a sharp blow it would have to be replaced. It could be there is dirt under the bezel. To clean this there are two possibilities. If your bezel has screws around the outer edge they will need to be loosened or unscrewed to remove the bezel. These are small screws so be careful you don't loose them. The bezel should then lift off. Clean it with mild soap and water and dry it well. Be careful of the bezel spring. it is easy to break the little fingers. Wipe off any dirt on the case and set the bezel spring and bezel back on the case. Use Red locktite on the screws and reinstall them. If you have markers on the bezel that come off when you remove the screws be sure you keep track of them and the screws that went with them.

If your bezel does not have screws but fake ones then the bezel should be removed by a qualified watchmaker because the bezel could be bent or damaged when removed.

Hope this helps.

Whats the rotating outter ring marked 0 through 60 function on my armitron 20/4664sv


The rotating bezel can be used to measure elapsed time. For example, if the time on your watch reads 10.10, align the zero point of the bezel with the minute hand. Now, say the time is 10.40, the minute hand at 8 o'clock will point towards 30 on the bezel, indicating that 30 minutes of time has elapsed since 10.10.

My A24322 is not working. Pl let me know how to get this started. Is this an automatic watch or a winding watch?


Your watch is an automatic (self winding) watch which can be started by swinging it gently from side to side for some minutes to wind the spring up.

For details see their web site by inserting the following link into your search engine http://www.breitling.com/en/index.php#/models/navitimer/navitimer-world/.

Self winders rely on being used to keep them wound and operate best if used every day.

Invicta 3215(or similar watches). What is the name of the 'clicking' mechanism on the rotating bezel? there is a hole for it the case when bezel is lifted.


mcdevito75 here, I"m pretty sure the mechanism is called a Ratchet mechanism, most likely for all watches with rotateing Bezels.

What is the purpose of the rotating bezel on the Callaway CY2058? It has no markings, which it needs to be useful.


If you have no markings on bezel there is no practical use for this feature.
Bezels with markings are used as a tachymeter (for calculating speed of the moving object) or as a countdown timer for sporting events or diving.
In your case bezel is becoming loose and thats why it is turning as I can't see the point why the watch should be fitted with rotating bezel with no markings on it.

Rate me, please.

Watch looses time. Breitling 1884


It sounds like your either not moving enough to wind it (try winding manually) or it needs a service (gear oil gone sticky) to free it up.

Luminox bezel


Grab the knurled edge of the bezel and turn counter clockwise. It only moves in one direction- to the left, counter clockwise.

My TAG Aquaracer bezel moves counterclockwise


Yes, there are solution for that, but you will not be able to solve it yourself as the new part is needed.
That new part is called BEZEL SPRING and it is fitted underneath the bezel.
Bezel spring has special hooks pressed into it and allows to turn the bezel one way only (anticlockwise), at the same time stopping the bezel to turn clockwise.
Another cause can be that the dirt and grime are collected between the bezel and the watch case (this is where the bezel spring is located) and is stopping functionality of the bezel spring by leting the bezel slide over the hooks. This can be fixed by cleaning the watch case in ultrasonic cleaner.
Anyway- if the bezel is rotating on its own, I suggest that the bezel spring is broke and you will need to replace it.
Do not forget to rate, please.

New Aqualand promaster dive watch JP1010-01L. Temperature currently displayed in C. How do I change display to F.


Called Citizen Customer Service and was told that there is no way to change it. These watches come set with metric or imperial scales from the factory and cannot be changed.
IT SUCKS !!!!!

Rotating outer ring


It is primarily cosmetic - the bezel was originally designed for diving, military activities or similar where counting down time was critical. Before digital stopwatches etc were built into watches as a feature, what you did as a diver was turn the bezel to the time (say 30 minutes) of air you had left, then the minute hand would travel around the face to the position 0 on the bezel, telling you 30 minutes had passed. You often find compass directions, various job specific calculators etc on bezels also, but unless you need a stopwatch / time reminder and don't have that feature in the watch itself, then it is purely a tradition to include a rotating bezel. The original bezels would have the time markings going the opposite way to the watch face usually, however on many modern watches, they often go the same way, allowing you to see how much time has passed, rather than how much you have left. Hope this clears things up :)
