Sector model 31723 broken stem


An independent watch repairman (used to be one at every jewelry store) can probably replace the stem of your watch for far less money, depending the damage you describe. I suspect that the high repair price given to you by Sector means that they would simply drop a brand new movement into your watch and give it back to you. In most cases, though, a replacement stem wholesales for $7-20, and you might be looking at $30-75 in labor, depending on where you live and the type of watch repair shop you're able to find.

When looking for a repair place, I would stay away from the big chain jewelry stores--and also the "while you wait" watch battery shops. Neither of those operations typically has an in-house person with the right expertise to fix your watch.

When all is said and done, it is possible that the nature of the stem break will require more expensive repairs to your watch. A good repairman will tell you if that's the case. Even then, $400 seems very high to fix this problem. In the old days of even 10 years ago, this would be a $25 repair!

Best of luck with your quest.

Need a glass for cartier 2301 cc708177 aurtomatic watch The glass broke how much will it cost? Can I put it in myself? The watch works inspite of being bit up a lot.


NO !! You cannot do it yourself !! You will destroy the value of the watch if you attempt a DIY repair. Google Cartier website, find a store near you, call them & discuss your watch; you can ship it insured to them, they'll call you BEFORE they do any work. If you or any non-authorized Cartier person opens the watch, you will destroy it's value, and they CAN tell if a non-Cartier person has opened it, will refuse to touch it.

Where can I obtain 23mm spring pins for Luminox 6402?


Many replacement watch bands come with a set of replacement spring bars. In addition, just about any place that change watch bands for customers--whether it's a jewelry store, a watch battery & band kiosk in a shopping mall, or possibly even a department store jewelry counter--also carries an assortment of spare spring bars for those times when the person changing the band drops or breaks a spring bar. These are inexpensive components, and you should not be charged much (if anything) for a replacement spring bar if you bring your watch to one of these places.

In the jewelry supply and wholesale trade, spring bars are sold in bulk, either in one size or as part of a larger assortment. I buy my spring bars in increments of 100. I have never seen a way to buy a single spring bar (or pair of spring bars) except from a retail operation.

Installed battery in lorus musical watch and nothing.


mcdevito75 here, A quartz mechanism can go bad just like a light bulb, depending on the watches age, wear etc. If your watch was stored for a period of time with a dead battery in it, that dead battery could hve leaked, ruining the mechanism. If your watch worked fine and the battery just went dead, make sure the battery contacts inside the watch are clean, use a Q-tip dipped in Alcohol and gently clean the battery contacts, press the button for the music part of your Lorus and make sure those contacts are clean and are meeting once the button is pressed, this you can see with the back cover off the watch. Makes sure the battery is installed correctly, and that the new battery number is the same as the old battery number. 364 and 371 are popular batteries for Lorus musical watches, even though your new battery is new, it can still be dead, who knows how long it was on the store shelf?? also, double check as some Lorus Musical watches have 2 batteries, 1 battery would be rather large ans sitting just under it"s hold down bracket see, as soon as you remove the back cover, if so, that battery must also be replaced. I have an old Mickey Lorus musical useing a 397 battery just 1 but my Lorus is burnt out. If all this fails, I would look for a small watch repair shop in your area and have them look at the watch for you.

I am a Jeweler and in Nov. I changed a Movado battery whick I have done for 13 years with out a problem. The customer claims that the stem doesn't work. I had set the time and it was hard to turn. Now...


mcdevito75 here, You don"t really have to be an authorized Movado dealer or repair center to service Movado watches, specially if Movado doesn"t have a warrantee on that particular watch. Also you say the stem was hard to turn, sounds like this particular Movado watch mechanism was starting to fail. The long and short is, you replaced the battery, set the watch and all was well when the customer recieved the watch back also, a Quartz mechanism could give out at anytime, just as a light bulb can. Have the customer come back with the watch if possible, place a drop of oil on the stem, try a replacement battery. Always ley your customers know what you find, and get a history of the watch from the customer before work, Age of watch, how it"s worn and stored etc. this way your covering yourself for any watch liability. You can offer this customer the mentioned re- service or a refund just to keep the customer happy.

Bricleting watch, the second hand cathes off the


The mechanism needs to be removed from the case and the fingers gently moved appart.

Unless you are an experienced watch repairer, I would advise you to take it to one for repair.

(Sometimes opening and closing a watch case can itself be more difficult than the repair you need. It is safer not to try it yourself.)

I got a barbie watch gift for my daugter, but i couldnot find the battery? where is it and how it work?


Of course the battery is inside and you would need to remove the case back on the watch to find it. You should have someone do it for you that has the proper tool to remove the case back and to properly remove and install the new one. Believe me, even stores can "screw it up". So you should not attempt this. Pay $5 to $10 and get an experienced person to do this for you. If you bought this new, then it should be working and you should not have to replace the battery. In that case, return it to the store or have them exchange it for another one. Hope this helps, Good Luck
