You could try removing the back and allow it to dry out but you may still have the loose stem problem.

I advise you to take it to a watch repairer and let them dry it out and sort out the loose stem.

Hi, bulova accutron watch with 2182 movement,how can i remove the stem? if possible,would you send me some relevent pictures? eg. the screw which case ease out the stem. coz I try few screws, but not sure...


any screw in the watch are not holding the stem you only have to find where you will push it to unlock the stem. mostly you have to use pointed tools on this. it is always located beside the entry hole of the stem. push it and pull the stem. i hope i had been helped you.

I want to remove my quartz movement to dry moisture from inside my watch. How can I remove crown, so that I can remove movement? Watch is old Gruen. Not worth shop repair.


Thanks for contacting FixYa.
It is WAY too risky to remove crown/fixture. Try this instead;
  • Step 2 Lay the watch in a dry place in sunlight and see if the water evaporates on its own. Put a piece of soft, absorbent cloth such as a towel under the watch. If the water inside the watch face is only a fine film of condensation that clears on its own after a short time, you probably do not need to do anything else.
  • Step 3 Seal the watch in a plastic bag filled with unopened packets of silica gel desiccant. These are the packets that come in shoe boxes and other packaged items. You can also use dry rice instead of the silica gel packets. Leave the bag somewhere warm and dry for a few days. The silica gel packets or rice can help draw out the water from inside the watch.
  • Step 4 Direct a fan at the watch or use a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting to blow air on the watch. Alternatively, if you can safely leave the watch on top of a low heat source such as a floor vent or radiator, this can help evaporate the water from inside the watch.
  • Step 5 Obtain the appropriate watch repair supplies. If you need to purchase tools, look for these at a watch repair shop or at a jewelry store. You can also find watch repair tools online. You may need small, fine-tipped screwdrivers and watch openers and closers.
  • Step 6 Take off the back of the watch, as if you were changing the battery. Use care not to scratch or damage any of the mechanisms such as the coil or stem. Let the watch dry thoroughly in the open air until there is no trace of moisture. Reassemble the watch once it is dry and press the seal firmly back into place. If the seal does not fit tightly, you may need to replace it
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });
    Best regards. Jewel

    Emporio armani 4211


    mcdevito75 here, There are 2 ways to wind your Armani Emporio watch, I'm figureing it"s an automatic watch, on some automatics you can start an initial ticking by winding the stem in any direction, if when you wind the stem you feel any resistance then this is the type of automatic watch you Start with about 20--30 winds of the watch. If on the other hand when winding the stem feels very loose and free, no resistance at all, then this is the type of automatic that relize on pure wrist and arm motion to start ticking, simply hold the watch in your hand and make small circle motions, or rocking motion, you should detect something moveing inside the watch, this is the winding counter balncer it's normal, rock or circle the watch for approx. 30 seconds to get it started. In both cases, after the watch starts, the motion of your wrist / arm keeps it wound as you wear it.

    I've recently found an old Elgin pocketwatch (Hunter Case, 1904?)


    If you wish to return this watch to a working condition you need to find a skilled watch repairer who is willing to take on a challenge.

    It could prove to be very expensive is parts have to be made to replace anything that is worn out or broken.

    Good luck!

    Stem was not staying down and know the stem is


    the 3200 model was one of the sturdiest models Luminox has ever made...the crown is not too expensive to replace and unless the threads on the case tube are bad or there is water damage it would be worth repairing IMHO

    Stem of watch won't return to its original position


    The winding crown is loose on the stem. Get the stem completely out of watch and while holding in vice or pair of pliers screw the crown back on tight. Do not overscrew it, as the stem may brake. Even better would be to unscrew the crown first, dip the threaded stem end in to the Superglue and then screw the crown back. It will prevent from the same problem in future.

    Rate, please.

    Stem came out, question water resistance of watch now


    Hi
    The crown or winder, should have a very small o ring inside it, which seals on the watch case. Normally when replacing the stem this o ring would be replaced and lubricated with silicone grease to ensure water tightness. If this was not done there is no guarantee that it will still be waterproof (please dont forget to rate my answer, thanks)

    New watch..Jules Jurgenson day-date..the stem cap is loose.


    remove the cap and put a tiny drop of locktite glue on it. spill some glue onto a piece of glass or an old plate and use a sewing needle to put a tiny drop of glue in the hole then screw it back on and wait till the remaing glue on the glass is gone hard before pushing the stem back in .. this last bit is important so as not to glue the stem to the watch. if this helps please rate me joe

    Eddie Bauer watch.


    these watches are waterproof so the stem is screwed down to seal out water. Try turning the stem to unscrew it somewhat , then pull out the stem to set.

    How do i remove crown?


    Hi, on the back of the movement there should either be a screw or a dimple in line or next to the line of the stem. If a dimple, press in with a pin or similar sturdy tool and gently withdraw the stem. If a screw, only one turn should be enough to release the stem
