Is the stem broken near the crown? Or do you think there is enough stem to take out of crown? If not you probibly will have to go to a watchmake (NOT a watch repairman) to make you the stem. If there is enough metal to take stem out of the crown you may be able to get someone to solder the stem back together. I do that reguarly with stems that are vintage, and I don't want have the time to remake the whole stem. Let me know. Good Luck!!!!

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.

I've recently found an old Elgin pocketwatch (Hunter Case, 1904?)


If you wish to return this watch to a working condition you need to find a skilled watch repairer who is willing to take on a challenge.

It could prove to be very expensive is parts have to be made to replace anything that is worn out or broken.

Good luck!

I hope you have Omega Dynamic?!

If yes, then the crown can be removed by appling slight pressure against the watch. The stem inside the watch is made of 2 pieces and the crown can be pulled out. But be careful, there are chances that the stem may break :-)

The stem of my Vicence watch seems to be broken as the hands still move after I push the stem in. Can this be easily and inexpensively repaired?


Doesn't sound like the stem is broken. Sounds more like the the setting lever is in the wrong position. If this is the case it's easily fixed and shouldn't cost too much.
