Question about Fossil Watches

1 Answer

Hi, My ladies black and siver ladies bracelet watch is not keeping time. first the plate in the face kept moving position according to the movement of my wrist. Then it stopped keeping time, so I took it to have a new battery fitted. But it is still not keeping time even though the minute hand is going around slowly. So I took it back to the repairers who checked the batery and that is apparently 'full'. Unfortunatley we bought the watch in the staes about 11mths ago and I now dont have reciept or Fossils Guarentee stamp. What can I do, as Ido love the watch and dont want to get a new one. seas

I would send it to Fossil anyways. You say the plate is moving, I'm thinking that's the dial (the thing with the Fossil logo and # on it) That is deffinantly under a warrenty. Fossil is pretty good with helping even if you don't have the paperwork, and don't live in the United States. Look them up on the internet, and if you can call first they will give you a # so when you send the watch they already know what to do and can start fixing your watch faster. Tell me what happens , or if I can assits you further. Good Luck!!!

Watch glossary: C (part1)


CABOCHON
Any kind of precious stone, such as sapphire, ruby or emerald, uncut and only polished, generally of a half-spherical shape, mainly used as an ornament of the winding crown or certain elements of the case.
CALENDAR, ANNUAL
An intermediate complication between a simple calendar and a perpetual calendar. This feature displays all the months with 30 or 31 days correctly, but needs a manual correction at the end of February. Generally, date, day of the week and month, or only day and month are displayed on the dial.
CALENDAR, FULL
Displaying date, day of the week and month on the dial, but needing a manual correction at the end of a month with less than 31 days. It is often combined with the moonphase.
CALENDAR, PERPETUAL
This is the most complex horology complication related to the calendar feature, as it indicates the date, day, month and leap year and does not need manual corrections until the year 2100 (when the leap year will be ignored).
CALIBER
Originally it indicated only the size of a movement, but now this indication defines a specific movement type and shape (e.g. round caliber) and combines it with the constructor's name and identification number. Therefore the caliber identifies the movement.
CANNON
An element in the shape of a hollow cylinder, sometimes also called pipe or bush, for instance the pipe of the hour wheel bearing the hour hand.
CARAT (KARAT)
Unit of gold fineness (and gemstone weight). Pure gold is 24k. 18k gold is 75% pure.
CAROUSEL
Device similar to the tourbillon, but with the carriage not driven by the fourth wheel, but by the third wheel.
CARRIAGE or TOURBILLON CARRIAGE
Rotating frame of a tourbillon device, carrying the balance and escapement. This structural element is essential for a perfect balance of the whole system and its stability, in spite of its reduced weight. As today's tourbillon carriages make a rotation per minute, errors of rate in the vertical position are eliminated. Because of the widespread use of transparent dials, carriages became elements of aesthetic attractiveness.
CASE
Container housing and protecting the movement, usually made up of three parts: middle, bezel, and back.
CENTER SECOND HAND, see sweep second hand.
CENTER-WHEEL
The minute wheel in a going-train.
CHAMPLEVé
Hand-made treatment of the dial or case surface. The pattern is obtained by hollowing a metal sheet with a graver and subsequently filling the hollows with enamel.
CHAPTER-RING
Hour-circle, i.e. the hour numerals arranged on a dial.
CHIME
Striking-work equipped with a set of bells that may be capable of playing a complete melody. A watch provided with such a feature is called chiming watch.
CHRONOGRAPH
A watch that includes a built-in stopwatch function, i.e. a timer that can be started and stopped to time an event. There are many variations of the chronograph.
CHRONOMETER
A high-precision watch. According to the Swiss law, a manufacture may put the word "chronometer" on a model only after each individual piece has passed a series of tests and obtained a running bulletin and a chronometer certificate by an acknowledged Swiss control authority, such as the COSC.
CIRCULAR GRAINING
Superficial decoration applied to bridges, rotors and pillar-plates in the shape of numerous slightly superposed small grains, obtained by using a plain cutter and abrasives. Also called Pearlage or Pearling.
CLASP
The attachment used to connect the two ends of the watch bracelet or strap around the wrist.
- Deployment Buckle - A three-folding enclosure, which secures the two ends of the bracelet and allows enough room for placing the watch on the wrist when fully deployed. When closed, the buckle covers the two-piece folding mechanism
- Hook Lock - Two separate units each fitting on either end of the bracelet which allows the watch to be laid out. One end of the closure hooks onto the other to secure the two ends of the bracelet.
- Jeweler's Clasp - A closure that is generally used on better bracelets. Also allows it to lie flat.
- Sliding Clasp - Also a hook type method but allows for easy sizing of the bracelet by sliding up.
- Twist Lock - A closure similar to Jeweler's Clasp used on ladies jewelry bracelets.
CLOISONNé
A kind of enamel work - mainly used for the decoration of dials - in which the outlines of the drawing are formed by thin metal wires. The colored enamel fills the hollows formed in this way. After oven firing, the surface is smoothed until the gold threads appear again.
CLOUS DE PARIS
Decoration of metal parts characterized by numerous small pyramids.

Watch glossary: B


BAGUETTE
Ladies style watch with a thin, elongated face; usually rectangular in shape but may be oval.
BALANCE
Oscillating device that, together with the balance spring, makes up the movement's heart in as much as its oscillations determine the frequency of its functioning and precision.
BALANCE SPRING
Component of the regulating unit that, together with the balance, determines the movement's precision. The material used is mostly a steel alloy (e.g. Nivarox, s.), an extremely stable metal compound. In order to prevent the system's center of gravity from continuous shifts, hence differences in rate due to the watch's position, some modifications were adopted. These modifications included Breguet's overcoil (closing the terminal part of the spring partly on itself, so as to assure an almost perfect centering) and Philips curve (helping to eliminate the lateral pressure of the balance-staff pivots against their bearings). Today, thanks to the quality of materials, it is possible to assure an excellent precision of movement working even with a flat spring.
BARREL
Component of the movement containing the mainspring, whose toothed rim meshes with the pinion of the first gear of the train. Due to the fact that the whole movement - made up of barrel and mainspring - transmits the motive force, it is also considered to be the very motor. Inside the barrel, the mainspring is wound around an arbor turned by the winding crown or, in the case of automatic movements, also by the gear powered by the rotor.
BASE METAL
Any non-precious metal.
BATTERY
Device that converts chemical energy into electricity. Most watch batteries are silver oxide type delivering 1.5 volts. Much longer-lasting lithium batteries are 3 volt.
BATTERY LIFE
The minimum period of time that a battery will continue to provide power to run the watch. Life begins at the point of manufacture when the factory initially installs the battery.
BATTERY RESERVE INDICATOR
Some battery-operated watches have a feature that indicates when the battery is approaching the end of its life. This is often indicated by the second hand moving in two second intervals instead of each second.
BEARING
Part on which a pivot turns, in watches it represented mostly by jewels.
BEVELING
Chamfering of edges of levers, bridges and other elements of a movement by 45░, a treatment typically found in high-grade movements.
BEZEL
Top part of case, often in a shape of the ring surrounding the watch face, sometimes holds the crystal. It may be integrated with the case middle or may be a separate element. It is snapped or screwed on to the middle.
BRACELET
A metal band attached to the case. It is called integral if there is no apparent discontinuity between case and bracelet and the profile of attachments is similar to the first link.
BRIDGE
Structural metal element of a movement - sometimes called **** or bar - supporting the wheel train, balance, escapement and barrel. Each bridge is fastened to the plate by means of screws and locked in a specific position by pins. In high-quality movements the sight surface is finished with various types of decoration.
BRUSHED, BRUSHING
Topical finishing giving metals a line finish, a clean and uniform look.
BUCKLE
Usually matching the case, it attaches the two parts of the leather strap around the wrist.
BUTTON
Push piece controls, usually at 2 o'clock and/or 4 o'clock on the dial to control special functions such as the chronograph or the alarm.

You might look for one on ebay, but you'll probably end up with a replica instead.

How to resize the bracelet?


Without a picture of the bracelet it is a little hard to be specific but there are usually little pins on the end of each link (look at the edge of the link (not the face against your arm or the face you see). Use a push pin (something very narrow - a paper clip is too big) to push the link pins out for one link. You may have to rap it lightly with a small hammer or mallet. You may also need to try the other end of the pin if it doesn't come out.

This will allow one link to be removed. Reinsert the pins and you are all set. You may want to take out a link on the other side of the clasp if more than one link needs to be removed to keep the clasp relatively in the same place on your wrist.

Good luck.

I'm not sure how to make the time start


You have to wind the watch manually after you buy it. there should be a little knob at about 3 o'clock. Turn it clockwise about 40 times. Make sure you wear it enough (8 hours a day) or else you have to wind it every day like this

I'm not sure about this arm movement.


if the watch as not been worn for a long time it's best to wind it by hand first to get it started, just make sure the winder is pushed all the way in and then just keep winding it clockwise till it start going..

How can you get into a sovereign ladies watch to change the battery, does the back come off or the glass ? the back doesn't seem removable. its diameter is 20 mm and its 9 carat gold. bracelet and watch


You have to pull stem out of watch movement completely and then remove watch glass. Sovereign watch cases are monoblock, so, the only way to get into it is to remove the glass. Rate me, plz.
