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 (, 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!)

Need to reset the time on my winner 24 it was given to me as a present and they lost the instrutions

If it is a genuine rolex:

  1. You twist the crown counter clockwise to unscrew it.
  2. Gently pull the crown. You should hear it click into the last position. Turn the crown to change the time.
  3. When you are finished, gently push the crown back in towards the watch case.
  4. Screw the crown back down by turning it clockwise.

The watch stopped ticking

the battery may need replacing

To start your watch remove the plastic guard from

under the crown, then press the crown in against

the case. The second hand will begin advancing in

one-second intervals.

Some deep-depth water-resistant watches require

the setting crown to be screwed in to secure

water-resistance. If your watch case has a protrusion

with screw threads, the crown must be screwed in

after setting the watch.

To screw in, push the crown firmly against the

threaded protrusion and hold in while turning the

crown clockwise. Continue to screw in the crown

until it is tight. You will need to unscrew the crown

(counter-clockwise) before pulling it out the next time
you want to set your watch

How do I pull the stem out to adjust the time on a ladies tag watch

If it doesn't come out buy pulling on it, you probably have what is called a screw down crown. It is necessary to unscrew the crown before it will pull out. This is a feature found on diver style and other watches. It helps prevent water from getting in your watch. Once you set your watch, press on the crown and turn at the same time to screw it back down against the case. Snug is tight enough!

I cannot pull out the time setting screw on the rhs of a ladies wn311 Tah Heuer.

The time setting screw is more accurately called the crown which is, in your case, a 'screw down crown'. This is done for water resistance. You must first unscrew the crown before you can pull it out. When you are finished setting the watch you must screw it back in. It may require that you press in on the crown and turn it at the same time to get the threads to catch. No need to overtighten it.

How do I remove the crown/stem to take the watch movement out of the case? thanks Marc

To remove the stem you must first loosen the set lever screw, then you can pull the stem out.
You only need to turn the set lever screw a couple turns to release the stem. Some movements use a button instead and in that case you would simply push the button down lightly with a pointed tool and while holding the button down pull the stem out.
For watches with one-piece cases where the movement comes out the dial side and the case has no removable back, you will not be able to get at the set lever screw. For this type of watch you must grasp the crown firmly and pull it out, or use plastic or soft brass tweezers to get behind the crown and pop it off. These watches have two-piece stems that have male and female ends that snap together. Then remove the bezel and let the movement come out into your hands. Then remove the hands and the dial and put the movement face down into a movement holder.

Starting a stopped automatic wrist watch

Unscrew the crown and wind it, then screw it back and twist/spin your watch. If this does not restart it going, then there is mechanical problem in movement and you will need watchmakers help.

Screw down crown wont lock

There are only two things that can cause screw down crown to malfunction. First is dirt and second is weakened/damaged thread. In first case you need to use ultrasonic cleaner by immersing the crown AND case to get rid of any dirt and grime sticking on both threads. If the matter is weakened/damaged thread - you will have to fit new crown and (possibly) new case tube on which crown is screwed onto. This can be done by decent watchmaker only.
Rate me, plz.

Screw down crown wont screw down

Either the crown or the case tube threads are stripped. Which ever part is stripped needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that both could be the problem. Be sure you don't get your watch wet until this is fixed. Your watch is NOT sealed for water resistance if the crown does not screw down.

Hope this helps.

How do I set the time on my Rolex Submariner?

First- unscrew the crown. Then pull it out to the first click. In this position you can adjust date by turning the crown. When date is set, pull the crown further out (second click). This position is for time setting. Adjust the hands to desired time.
Push the crown back in and screw it on tight.
That's all.
