Question about Vicence Rectangular Case Strap Watch

1 Answer

Watch literally came completely apart..I'm told that the stem broke inside the watch and it's not repairable..IS that true? I paid more for this watch than any othe watch I have ever purchased and it lasted the shortest amount of time..I bought this from QVC and they tell me there was just a 1 year warranty and I puchased it 3 years ago wore it maybe 3-5 times a month during that time. I hate to throw this watch out..would like to get it repaired if it doesn't cost too much. Do you know anywhere in Dallas, Tx that can repair Vicence watches

If there is any damage to the mechanism, then it is best sent back to the maker. It seems strange that the watch has broken after such short service; if you tell them your story they may look kindly on any repair charges.

I suggest you go to their web site and contact them about your problem

push it inside while you were turning it until you feel something in inside locks, but if not effective, yur watch must be opened to pus the lock inside while you are inserting the stem. if still not effective, your watch module has to be replaced by a new one. i hope this thing will helped you a lot.

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

    I need a Crown for my nike watch

    mcdevito75 here, Best bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for a replacement crown. If the crown broke off however, you need a new crown and stem.

    I pulled the stem out completely trying to reset time.

    if you broke the stem and its left a peice inside the movement then i would ask your repairer for a module exchange this is cheaper than servicing and a new crown 55.00 or send it back to seiko they are very good with there wont have the tools you need to replace it yourself..

    Stem is loose and water got inside

    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.

    My watch the bezel that you change the time / date with, when pulled out comes all the way out, can not change time. Watch less than a year old, can not find the warrenty, not the end of the world, do not...

    There are two possible causes: settting lever in your watch is broke/out of engagement or stem is broke. Not a big deal, but watchmakers skills are needed to fix it, as watch must be dismantled.
    Any decent watchmaker can do it, so, just find your nearest watch repair shop and ask to fix it. Prices may vary, but no more than 25% of the cost of watch itself.
    P.S. It is called Crown or Winding Crown (you say bezel).

    Rate me, please.

    Moisture in watch

    try this: remove the stem (I assume you got the stem back on). borrow a strong shop vacuum and literally suck the moisture out the hole using your hand or duct tape tightly wrapped to funnel the vacuum from the tiny hole.
