Cracked watch fqce


Actually you have a cracked watch "crystal". The cost is typically 35 dollars or more. It may be more economical to buy a new watch. A watchmaker should be able to install a new crystal if you decide to go that route

The crystal of my wife's skagen watch popped out and the nylon ring surrounding the crystal seems too big to get back in, or perhaps I just don't have the right tools. Help!


Watch crystals are pressure fitted to their cases so that they are resistant to popping out. Think of a champagne cork, and how it expands when it comes out of its bottle.
Crystals are set into cases in one of several basic methods. First, a crystal may be installed from the back--watch cases are commonly assembled before the movement is installed. So, one potential way of reinstalling your crystal is to remove the watch movement from the case (if it isn't already) and try pushing the crystal from the back forwards. If this is indeed the way it was installed, the crystal should pop into position with a noticeable click or light thump to let you know that the other edge of the crystal has found the shallow groove in which it's supposed to sit.
Second, some crystals can be installed from the front using a tool called a "crystal lift." This tool has many little fingers that compress the edge of the watch crystal so that it can be slid into the case. Pressure is then gradually removed from the crystal, permitting it to expand into the shallow groove into which it's supposed to sit. Crystal lifts are easy to use in theory but somewhat finicky in real life; the crystal must be grabbed equally by all the lift prongs or else the crystal will have a tendency to squirt out of the tool before it's been completely set.
Looking at pictures of your wife's watch, it doesn't look to me like a crystal lift would do any good. I think instead that your crystal might have been installed using a third method. Looking at the pictures, it looks like the bezel--the metal top of the watch--separates from the watch body. If this is the case, gently pop off the bezel and push the crystal into it from behind. Then, push the bezel back onto the watch movement. It's possible that the crystal is kept in place by being squeezed between the bezel and the rest of the watch case.
If all of this sounds daunting, putting the crystal back in--assuming it's not cracked--is a minor job for a watch repair technician. It literally might only take 5-10 minutes to complete the job. If you're concerned about the appearance of the watch, it might be safest to pay someone the small amount of money to get this done right. Replacing a watch crystal with a new one usually runs about $15-25, around where I live. Replacing an undamaged crystal that's popped out should cost appreciably less, since a new crystal costs a jeweler between $5-25 for most standard sizes (diver's watches and strange specialty shapes will cost more).

Can't press the back of the watch back on after replacing the battery - Do I need a jewelers press?


A jeweler's press provides an equal amount of force around the edges of the watch back without putting that same pressure on the watch crystal (which could cause it to crack or break). If you have a flat crystal, you might have success in putting the watch between two pieces of wood and using a regular vice to very gently push the front and back together. However, you risk doing damage to your watch crystal.
Your safest bet may be to go to a jewelry store or jewelry counter in a department store and ask if they could close the back for you with the proper tool. You may have to tip them a few dollars, but that is still far cheaper than the cost of replacing a broken watch crystal.

My watch works with movement, and will work for a few seconds then stop, even thought I'm continously moving. Is it a shortage or something? I can shake the watch and it will work but only for a few...


I would take it to a watchmaker/jeweler to have them check the battery. Some watches have a battery bar that holds the battery in and it may have come loose. Or the battery is losing charge. It should not cost you anything to have them check the battery for you. Good luck

How to replace battery in men's geneve 14k gold watch must remove crystal is it tricky?


It is not usual to remove the crystal of a watch the replace the battery. All other watches I have come across need the back to be removed.

I suggest you take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

What type of battery do I need for a Rado watch (111.0322.3) - thank you.


Examine the markings on the battery. It is likely to be a 1.5-volt Silver Oxide or Alkaline battery. It doesn't matter which one you use, although the Silver Oxide battery can handle heavier energy-consuming loads, such as a multifunctional chronograph. It can be purchased from amazon, here: watch battery 1 5V silver oxide 357 SR44 SR44SW 10 pack. I hope this was helpful. Cheers

Crystals framing my Haurex watch face are falling out.


Hi, im a jeweller myself. The problem with jewellers and crystals is simple. Its a lot of work to replace something that doesnt cost a lot to buy (the crystals, not the watch). Swarovski are a commonly known producer of crystals, but you will probably find that simulation gemstones such as Cubic Zirconia are commonly used in newer watches.

I specialise in gemstone setting, and can also work with simulation stones and crystals, but it takes much longer to reset stones into a stainless steel watch case than into gold or platinum so the labour costs are much higher.

It depends how much the watch is worth as to how much you spend on repairs.

Hope this helps
