Hands cannot keep time

Somehow the hands have loosened from the base so that when the watch moves side to side, the hands swing loosely around and cannot keep time.

    The hands have come loose off of the hour and minute wheel post. The cannon pinion is not the problem. Any watch repair center can simply reallign the hands up. It's a fairly easy repair this is very common when a watch falls and lands of the floor or gets bumped. Hope this helps, gabe

There is nothing you can do yourself, because your watch has a loose cannon pinion and for tightening it the special watchmakers tool is obligatory. You have to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask watchmaker to do that. No need to go to any specific watch repair shop, as any decent watchmaker has the tool and can do the job. Rate me, plz.

Battery on m Invict Pro Diver watch replaced , now the second hand stays swinging back and forth in the same place

Do the minute and hour hands keep proper time? I've seen your problem before when the hand has come loose from the center post that turns it. You probably need someone who knows what they are doing to pull the crystal and reseat the second hand. Do this when the watch is off!

Hour hand does not move minuet hand does not move but second works

Loose cannon pinion or cannon driving wheel, depending on model of movement inside the watch.

The seconds hand represents the wheels in the back of the watch going around ok, but the power need to transfer through to the front of the watch somehow. This is done by snapping/clicking two wheels together on either side of the main plate. The one on the dial side (cannon pinion) needs to slip to be able to set the time as the minute hand is set on this pinion. From there it is one wheel to the side & then back into the centre for the hour wheel. Over time the mating surfaces wear & become loose, meaning that the two hands driven fron the front of the watch are not being carried anymore. Time to see a repair guy!

i cant get a manual for this but watches have standard mechanical function so maybe this will do.
the center crown of the watch right side of the picture, loosen the crown. Be careful, some crown have a screw function so if your bulova has this don't force to pull it to prevent damage. if you have loosen the crown, check if can be turn it, if yes pull gently the crown, first pull date adjust,second pull time adjust.
This is the proper way to adjust you day and time.
say you want to adjust your watch to (date)10th (time)10:15am
adjust your date to 9th, then move your watch hands clockwise until the date change at 12oclock this is the evening time (PM) continue moving your watch hands until you reach 10:15am.
if your crown is a screw time remember to turn it close tightly for waterproofing.

Somehow i think i chipped the face of my watch, and small chips on the inside are stopping my hands from moving. how do i get the face off?

mcdevito75 here, To get to the face of your watch is a job, you"d need a few jewelers tools and would have to be a bit handy with watches as there is a certain way to move your hands around the watches movement a wrong move of your hands in the watches movement can destroy it. First you"d have to remove the watches back cover, then you"d have to remove the stem (winder) and there"s a certain method to that with requires jewelers screwdrivers, then you"d have to lift the movement out of the case and if these chips loosed the hands you"d need another tool to re-seat them. BEST BET, Check with the repair service directory here at fixya, click on repair service directory bottom of this page, then click on watches, I am Mike D at RITE TIME BASICS and may be able to help or check with any fine watch repaire in the directory.

Mintues hand problem.

There are two reasons for this. First- you distorted minute hands hole and now it is not sitting tightly on pinion. Second- when you pulled off the minutes hand, you lifted cannon pinion. As the result it is loose and swings freely. I do understand you have no knowledge how the watches are build, so, visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to fix it. Please, do not take it personally - it is just because you can't do that without watchmakers knowledge, so, save your nerves, time and watch. Rate me, plz.

Bakelite antique mantle clock just bought, but no instructions of how to get it going. Ive got the key and pendulum but dont know how to set it up. Can you help?

First you have to wind up your clock using the key supplied. The pendulum suspension spring should start to swing quite fast. Stop it swinging with your fingers and hook up the pendulum. When done, push the pendulum to whatever side and release it to start the swing - the clock should start ticking in normal order. If there is no special bar on the back of clock movement for adjusting hands, then hands must be adjusted from the dial side by moving minute hand clockwise. Move the minute hand with your finger clockwise to the desired time, at the same time do not catch hour hand, as this may end up with the incorrect time displayed. Rate me, plz.

Battery has been replaced. watch will not work

This isnt uncommon! Depending on how long the dead battery remained in the could be that the watch is running but the hands might not be moving. Chances are thats what the issue is. The problem is that you need to find a watch repair business that has a cyclonic machine. It picks up the "beat" that the magnetic rotor makes as the wheels move inside. It most likely needs a little watch oil and a spin on the cyclonic machine.

We do this countless times everyday! Customer brings a watch in and its not running, we check the battery and its good. The watch oils loose viscosity as the watch ages and it can keep the hands from moving! Another issue is finding a repair company that wont try and sell you a new movement when its not needed! Thats common too! :-( I would check around at different places. If they are honest then they wont try to fix something that isnt broke! :-)

Good luck!!!

I have not worn my SEIKO kinetic wrist watch for a

Here is the information from the website. The link to the manual is provided below. HOW TO CHARGE AND START THE WATCH Swing the watch from side to side approximately 50 times. * Before swinging the watch, check and remember where the minute hand is so that you can tell if the start-up indicator has worked or not. First, check that the crown is at the normal position. * If the crown is pulled out and the watch is swung, the start-up indicator will not work even if the watch starts operating. * Swing rhythmically at a rate of twice a second. * No additional benefit is obtained by swinging the watch more quickly or with greater vigor. * When the watch is swung, the oscillating weight in the generating system rotates to drive the mechanism. As it rotates, it gives out a sound, which is not a malfunction. 1 2 The minute hand moves quickly and stops as the watch starts operating. (Start-up indicator) Then, it will move at 20-second intervals. 3 After checking that the minute hand has done this, pull out the crown to set the time. 4 After pushing back the crown in to the normal position, swing the watch further approximately 350 times to reserve one day of power, and then, put the watch on your wrist. Good luck, Techjoel
