This is a self winding watch and can be wound by gently swinging it back and forth or wearing it.

How do I set the time on an old Regina pocket watch. I can wind it and it runs well. The piece to wind the watch does not pull in or out to set the hands.


If you can wind your pocket watch using the crown, but you cannot see any way of setting the watch, you probably have a "lever-set" movement, though it's possible you might also have a "pin-set" movement. Do you see a little button you can push in, either at 1-2:00 or 10-11:00 on the watch case? If you, you have a pin set watch. Push and hold that little button in while you twist the winding crown, and that will let you set the time. End of problem.

Setting the time on a lever-set watch is a bit more complicated and will require taking off the front bezel of your pocket watch--the metal ring that holds the watch crystal in place. Pocket watch cases of this time are usually made in 3 pieces: the bezel, the main case body, and the back. The procedure used to remove your bezel depends on the type of watch case you have.

Take a close look at the front of your pocket watch. Do you see any hinges at the bottom (that is, below 6:00 and where the bezel meets the main case body)? I suspect that you won't, as double-hinged cases are usually associated with an older style of pocket watch, but it's worth checking. If you do see little hinges for the FRONT (it's more likely that the back will be hinged), then look for a little lip on the bezel that's used to pry open the front. Pull on that to open the case.

If you don't see hinges, which is what I expect, your front bezel unscrews. You can try to do this with your bare hands, but it's a lot easier if you have a bit of "gripping" rubber so your hands don't slip so badly. I have a small rectangle of shelf non-slip stuff that works perfectly for this. Turn the bezel counterclockwise. It may resist a little bit at first due to accumulated dirt, but then it should easily screw off.

Once you have the bezel away from the face, look closely at about 2:00 on the watch dial. Just at the edge of the dial, you should see a little lever or button. GENTLY pull this away from the watch face until it stops. Now, when you turn the winding crown, you should be able to set the time. Once the time is set, gently push the lever back to its prior position. Now, you should be able to wind the watch without changing the time.

Be very careful when screwing the bezel back onto the watch body. These parts typically have very fine threads, and it's easy to cross-thread the pieces. Don't force the two pieces together; once the threads catch properly, the front bezel will screw on easily without resistance.

An older style of pocket watch required the use of a little key to set the time from the back of the pocket watch movement. However, these watches were also wound by the same key, so the fact that you're able to wind this watch with a crown suggests to me that your watch doesn't use this system.

Just a quick question On my Omega Double eagle, I went to mexico for the week left my watch at home and when I return I gave it a shake to start the movement being it is a chroncile watch and for some...


A mechanical watch will tend to stop in the same place if an internal gear is slightly unbalanced and/or there's a spot of grease/dirt that makes that particular point on a gear slightly more difficult to pass. I've often seen watches with day/date indicators stop just around midnight, as it takes more energy to advance those dials than just move the hour and minute hands.
Try winding your watch with the crown as opposed to shaking it to wind it via the automatic rotor. Actual winding will bring your mainspring up to full power much faster than a whole lot of winding via automatic rotor. See if this changes the behavior of the watch. If it doesn't, you probably need to have a watchmaker take a look at the watch. He or she will probably recommend cleaning the movement to clear any dirt that might be causing the problem.

Watch is new out of the box. Movement will not start. ???


mcdevito75 here, If your Wittnauer is a Quartz movement, look for a small piece of plastic, just under the crown (winder) remove this piece of plastic carefully and push the crown back down to start your watch, if it's an automatic movement, try to wind with the stem if you feel a resistance then winding will initially start yor watch by winding with 20--30 winds, if you feel no resistance when winding the simply rock your watch back and forth in your hand, you will detect something moveing inside the watch, this is the counter balance winding the watch, rock the watch back and forth for approx. 30 seconds to start an initial wind.

I have an omega watch thats winding knob came off, now the spring is exposed and i cannot put it back on, how do i fix it?


Unfortunately you can not fix it yourself. If the spring came out, that means your winding knob (real name is CROWN) has been worned out and the friction fitting no longer can keep it in working order. AS THE CROWNS FOR ALL WATCHES ARE MADE BY MACHINES, NO WATCH REPAIRS CAN BE SUCCESSFULL. All you can do is to go to local OMEGA dealer shop and ask for replacement. Be prepaired to pay more than you think. OMEGA parts for replacemebt cost dearly.

Leave the settings as for ordinary automatic movement. Co-axial movement has nothing to do with winding process - it was developed for more precise time keeping and friction reducing only, so, you can wind the watch in winder as usual.

My watch is not moving . I want to know do I need to change the battery or it is self wind? ref. 384858.Thanks


Its easy to tell if its battery operated or self wind. Turn the crown (where you set the time) forward. Self wind watches will click as you turn the crown. If its battery operated then you will hear no clicks. Some watches have a screw down crown so if the crown wont turn forward then try turning back. Some watches have a capacitor that needs to be charged! Seiko Kinetics are charged by movement like an older automatic. Citizens are charged by light!

Good luck!

I hope you have Omega Dynamic?!

If yes, then the crown can be removed by appling slight pressure against the watch. The stem inside the watch is made of 2 pieces and the crown can be pulled out. But be careful, there are chances that the stem may break :-)

Hi, my omega seamaster planet ocean has stopped. it has the co axial movement. is this serious? How do i get it restarted as it wil not with winding etc, thanks rob


Hi Rob, Don't worry if it's a genuine Omega and hasn't been subjected to serious abuse then whatever the problem may be it won't be terminal. All mechanical watches, particularly high quality watches such as this should be serviced every two to three years and in this case ONLY by a qualified Omega service person. Cause may be a simple as lubrication however the low fiction properties of these watches are fundamental to their revolutionary design. It may have become magnetised, or any number of things may have occurred to have caused it to stop. If you cannot wind it via the crown then the mainspring is wound by movement. Try shaking it for 15 to 20mins and if it doesn't restart take it to an authorised Omega repair service. Jo

How do I manually wind my Omega Seamaster Automtic Plz


I'll make it easy and with a little fun for you!
First -lets assume that the winding crown of your watch is the one of the weels fitted on the car.
Imagine the car which is driving across your watch dial from point 6 (six o'clock) to point12 (twelve o'clock).
Which way the weel of the car is turning?
So, the winding of the watch is executed exactly in the same direction as the weel turn of that car when it goes from point 6 to point 12.
When you wind the watch in that direction, the winding pinion and the clutch wheel (both are parts of setting gear) gets engaged and through the gears turns the barrel which is housing the mainspring.
When you turn the winding crown in opposite direction, the winding pinion and the clutch weel gets disengaged due to the specially angled weel teeth and no action in the setting gear is taken. All you hear is just a rapid clicking sound when the wheel teeth are jumping over each other.
I hope this is Fixya.

Do not forget to rate, please.
