If it does not wind automatically or with the turning of the crown then something is not working in the winding mechanism. If this is a new watch it needs to be sent to the store where purchased for a replacement. If it is not new but under warranty it should be sent to the manufacturer.

If it is out of warranty it can be serviced by a watchmaker. Generally if the watch won't wind it could be a broken mainspring, a broken wheel in the winding mechanism, a broken auto wind weight or even a screw that has come loose and is blocking the weight or gear train of the winding mechanism.

There isn't an easy fix that you could do to get this running.

Hope this helps,

Have a nivada grenchen womens watch but it is not running and is missing the dial. Can it be fixed it was my mothers?


Adria it will be very difficult to find the dial and parts to get it going. YOU might be lucky if only cleaning can get it going but without a dial? Also check with manufacturer for help due to sentimental values.

I bought a Croton watch style is Croton Automatic limited edition 0202/1000, 35 jewels, I'm having a problem with it self winding, the mechanism in the back seems to be jammed, it will not spin easily...


It sounds like you have be sold a lemon!



If you have recently bought it and you have a proof of purchase (and it is still within the warranty period) then you should return it for repair/replacement.

I need to change the batteries and i cant get thhe back off


mcdevito75 here, Croton, a high quality watch, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change, these quartz movements can easily be destroyed with mis-handleing and anyway a battery lasts at least 1 year.

I have a Croton watch. It is a automatic.I can't get it to run.I was informed that the watch had to be wound. The crown{stem} has four settings.I shak it and it runs for about 15 seconds


In the first position (closest to the case but not screwed down if it's a screwdown crown) wind the crown clockwise about 40 turns and it should run fine. The automatic winding system relies on wrist movement to spin a weighted rotor that winds the watch. When you're not wearing the watch or not moving much when you do have it on, it will run down and you have to manually wind it to get it going again. If you wear it everyday and are reasonably active you may never have to wind it but take it off for a day and you will.

Can't get my croton watch to work.


There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:
  1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead battery in them).
  2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
  3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!

Croton automatic watch, band problem


Unless you have the appropriate tools for the job, it is likely that you will mark or damage the links taking them out yourself - any reasonable jeweller will be able to perform this service, normally only costing a few dollars at most. You could also return the watch to Croton to get this done if you prefer; http://www.crotonwatch.com/contact_us.aspx If you are still determined to do it yourself, then it is fundamentally just a matter of identifying the removable links (they will have a small screw head visible on the side), buy the correct size screwdriver(don't get a cheap one, it will do your watchstrap no favors) then it is simply a matter of unscrewing the link pins required, reassembling the pin where you wish to rejoin the strap - use loctite or similar to keep it from undoing, but be careful not to get this in the moving parts of the strap. if you can post a close up picture of the removable links from all sides, then i could talk you through it in more detail. Hope this helps :)
