How to remove crystal from Pulsar watch PF3142 chronograph to refit small seconds hand


There is usually a way to remove the crown and stem together so that the movement can be removed from the casing.
Have a good look over the movement and see if there are any identifying marks and let me know what you find. Alternatively, post a photo of the movement.

I have a diesel watch model dz-2136 I need to know how to remove stem


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
I dont know why you want to remove the stem but here you go.
To remove the stem you must first loosen the set lever screw, then you can pull the stem out.
You only need to turn the set lever screw a couple turns to release the stem. Some movements use a button instead and in that case you would simply push the button down lightly with a pointed tool and while holding the button down pull the stem out.
For watches with one-piece cases where the movement comes out the dial side and the case has no removable back, you will not be able to get at the set lever screw. For this type of watch you must grasp the crown firmly and pull it out, or use plastic or soft brass tweezers to get behind the crown and pop it off. These watches have two-piece stems that have male and female ends that snap together. Then remove the bezel and let the movement come out into your hands. Then remove the hands and the dial and put the movement face down into a movement holder. Now you can remove the stem as described above

I need spare part for my k3 submarine watch: I need Screw Down Case Pipe + Crown. Where can I find it in Australia?


Assuming that these parts are unique to your make of watch, then according to their web site there are no distributors in Austrailia.

If you go to their web site (www.vostok-europe.com/), you will see a map of the world and the countries that have distributors are shown in red.

Your nearest distributor is in Indonisia but you could just a easily order one from an English speaking country (to increase the chances of getting what you want!)

How to remove crown? [IMG]http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o189/rocejo/IMG_0115.jpg[/IMG]


Hi,
I've looked at the image you posted, and I think it's a Ronda 515 movement or something very close.

If that's the case, do the following.

Push the crown fully back to it's normal running position. If it's a screw-down crown then ensure it's unscrewed. Using the tip of a fine pair of tweezers (or similar - perhaps a needle) press lightly on the small depression that you can see in your photo (on the main metal plate of the movement, to the right, just below where the stem enters the mechanism). While pressing on that, gently pull on the crown. If it doesn't release, press a little harder on the depression but please be moderate with the force you use - if you press too hard you may damage the mechanism.
If you take enough care, you should be able to remove the crown and stem.
To replace it, make sure the movement is correctly aligned in the case and gently press in the stem. If you feel any resistance, then rotate the crown slightly and try again. Again, if you try and force it, you may damage the movement.
It is usually not necessary to place any pressure on the depression to reinsert the stem, but if all else fails it won't do any harm.
Please let me know how you get on.

Fault with a Vostok Europe Red Square watch


The crown holds in place by one little screw inside of the watch. It is a very easy fix - you just need too open the watch and tighten the screw.
Or even better solution - send it back for repair. All Vostok-Europe watches are covered by 24 months warranty.

How do i remove crown?


Hi, on the back of the movement there should either be a screw or a dimple in line or next to the line of the stem. If a dimple, press in with a pin or similar sturdy tool and gently withdraw the stem. If a screw, only one turn should be enough to release the stem
