Open the back of your watch. pull the stem ( winder) out and look for a small metal piece inside that moves as you do this. There should be a little dimple on the moving piece. The piece may be on then side next to the stem, or on the movement under the movement backing plate. Tale a tweezer or something like it and push in the dimple. DO NOT PUSH HARD!!! You want to try to pull the stem out while pushing down on the dimple( it's called the detent) as lightly as you can. If you push too hard you will mess up the whole stem assemly If you still have a problem please let me know..Good Luck!!

Open the watch and lay it on the table dial down and winder facing you.
Get the hard steel needle and push down the small metal piece next to the to the place where the stem is entering the movement (on the left side). Pull out the stem while holding that piece down.
If thhat piece looks like screw cap (with the groove), then you have to unscrew it in order to get the stem out.

The watch should last 36 hours from fully wound. If your wearing the watch and using a watch winder and its still stopping, you have a problem with the mechanism. Get it serviced. (its probably just a clean and oil req'd)

Better get it dried up and serviced asap, as the moisture might have got into the movement. You dont want rust to be your next problem. But, some screw some dont....most people bring in the crown in one hand and the timepeice in the other-broken. If I'm thinking of the right watch, there is a release point inside the case that releases the stem.

My cerruti watch always stop at 11:30


It sounds as if the watch has taken a knock, and the hands are no longer properly aligned (that is, no longer at right angles to the stem, so that they rise up and down with respect to the watch face as they rotate, and typically try to 'cross' at a particular time of day).
If this is the case you might be able to see it if you first pull out the winder to the time adjustment position, then look closely across the watch face as you rotate the winder.
If I'm right, it's not a big job to correct it, but not one for the enthusiastic amateur. If you value your watch then take it to a reputable watch repairer.
I hope this helps.

What kind of watch winder do I need for this watch


You have selected a wonderful watch... Heuer and TAG/Heuer should be gently wound by the motion of the human wrist and the falling of a centrally pivoting weight (there is no ideal direction).

AUTO-WIND function is NOT at all unique to your watch...

After a couple of CHEAPER "winders" failed me... and after I figured about 4 watches was more than enough to keep wound... I found the greatest BASIC watch winder... to run year over year (efficiently and quietly)

MTE watch winder (their very basic WTS-4).

Good luck: I WILL try to include the URL (see page 6)

I have a new, purchased ar an auction so no paperwork a Cartier pasha woman's wristwatch. I don't know how to wind it. Please tell me


There are several models of this watch and you don't say which one you have but thi range are either automatic (which means that it is self winding) or quartz (battery driven).

If it is not going it could be
(1) (for a quartz watch) the winder has been pulled out (push it back in) or the battery has expired. (Do you know how old the watch is?).

(2) If the watch says "automatic" on the face, then it haas probably just run down (they run for 2-3 days if they are not used). If this is the case, holding the watch horizontally, swing it gently from side it side for a few minutes (this will operate the self winding mechanism) and the watch should then start. To keep an autimatic watch operating it needs to be worn daily or placed on a winder when not in use.

Somehow i think i chipped the face of my watch, and small chips on the inside are stopping my hands from moving. how do i get the face off?


mcdevito75 here, To get to the face of your watch is a job, you"d need a few jewelers tools and would have to be a bit handy with watches as there is a certain way to move your hands around the watches movement a wrong move of your hands in the watches movement can destroy it. First you"d have to remove the watches back cover, then you"d have to remove the stem (winder) and there"s a certain method to that with requires jewelers screwdrivers, then you"d have to lift the movement out of the case and if these chips loosed the hands you"d need another tool to re-seat them. BEST BET, Check with the repair service directory here at fixya, click on repair service directory bottom of this page, then click on watches, I am Mike D at RITE TIME BASICS and may be able to help or check with any fine watch repaire in the directory.

Condensation has just developed on the inside of my watch face, How can i get rid of it (It is a Giorgio Armani)


It is sometimes possible to get rid of moisture by putting the watch in a warm place and leaving it there overnight.

If this has not effect, then the watch needs to be opened to dry it out.

As moisture has entered the watch, then it would appear that the seal in the back or the winder is no longer effective and it may need replacing.

Need to remove winder on mens seiko titanium so i can remove the


Ensure crown is in neutral position i.e. pressed home (not in set hands posn.) Remove back and adjacent to the winding stem on the movement there should be a small button (may be indicated with an arrow) depress this gently whilst withdrawing the crown and stem from the watch. Ensure you don't engage to set hands position in the process. You might also find a couple of screws securing the movement into the case. P.S. Usually don't need to remove from case to replace battery.

I have a Rado DiaStar watch (with digital display), and the hands are out of synch with the digital display. Is there a way of adjusting the hands independently of the display? or must it be sent back to...


Hears how i do my watch, i have the same watch as you.Just make sure nothing is displayed on the clock face by turning the winder, ie NO digital time, NO daul time, NO alarm, NO stop watch etc, Pull out the winder(crown) and adjust the hands to the time you require by spinning the winder.(Gentley for mins and fast for hours) The digital clock will display wilst doing this, but not change the time.handy if you want to sync both clocks.Push the winder back in at the time to sync and the digital display will go out, then spin the winder again if you want to display the digital features. I hope this helps, please post if it does, Maurice Chevalier- Herts
