For removing or adding links firstly you will have to remove bracelet pins or screws. In case if there are screw on each side of bracelet - you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously. In case if there are pins - read the rest:
You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out. First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together (screw ends and pin end may look similar). Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove. Start with a tiny screwdriver and try to unscrew one. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead of screws. For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it. Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well. NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer. Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows. After a few punches check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the pin end is coming out long enough - grab it with pliers and pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting. After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet. It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin. Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times. Job done! If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

I am not familiar with this watch but if it is a mechanical escapement (which ticks), then it could be that the balance wheel has become dislodge.

Has the watch been dropped lately? If it has, then a trip to a watch repairer is needed.

How to open rado coupole


Thank you for contacting FixYa.<br /> If you are opening up the back for the battery, I would HIGHLY recommend that you have done by a certified Rado Service center.<br /> They will test for watertightness, seal it properly, change o ring and crown. <br /> If you still want to risk doing yourself then follow these instructions:<br /> <b>Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover</b>. This is the access point for removal. You can find this sometimes by running your fingernail around the back rim, as this tab or indentation can be hard to see. <br /> <li> 2<b><b class="ecxwhb">Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches</b>.</b> </li> <li> 3<b><b class="ecxwhb">Get a small flathead screwdriver</b> it needs to be a thin inflexible tip</b>. Use a kitchen knife as a last resort. Wrap the hand you are holding the watch with in a towel or protect your hand in some manner so you don't injure yourself if the screwdriver/knife slips. </li> <li> 4<i><b class="ecxwhb">Very carefully</i> slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has)</b>. Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade. </li> <li> 5<b><b class="ecxwhb">Get under the tab or recessed area</b> and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off</b>. </li> <li class="ecxsteps_li ecxfinal_li"> 6<b><b class="ecxwhb">When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch</b>.</b></li> <br /> <b>If you decide to send to Rado, then follow link:</b><br /> <a href="http://www.rado.com/stores_locator/default.htm?client_request_type=2">http://www.rado.com/stores_locator/default.htm?client_request_type=2</a><br />

I'm unable to find information anywhere on this watch, so am really hoping you can help. The watch in question is a ladies Bulova, stamped BULOVA 14K on the back of the case (at one end) and on the...


This is just a personal suggestion that I have.
It sounds like you have a vintage Bulova watch and unless there is a watchmaker near you who deals with vintage watches (they are hard to come by!) you will have to rely on the internet but it could be a time consuming project.
What I would do, is go to www.google.com , type in vintage 14 kt Bulova, or 14 kt Bulova, or similar combination, and click on the IMAGE link (second tab at the top of page) and it will bring up every image on the internet of 14 kt bulova watches, etc. Look for the one that looks like yours and then go to the site that has that photo.. It might be helpful
Whatever you do, you have a good watch, Dont get rid of it as the gold is valuable, even if the watch does not work.
Please let me know if this is helpful at all. JKN
