Question about Watches

My daughter has an opal for about 20 years, which she wears on a chain around her neck, but it suddenly turned cloudy. Could you tell me what caused this to happen, and how it can be fixed? Thank you very much for your help. Yours truly, Julie Cadieux

Cartier Women's Tank Watch


What has been the issue when the repairs have been done? My experience with Tanks is that any reputable watch shop will replace the battery for $20. I don't know why it has cost you so much, but if the model you have is an auto-winder, then there is no way to retrofit a battery - although for $600 someone may be able to change the internal watch out completely.

My 5 year old Seiko kinetic (divers') watch: beyond shaking, is there a way to wind it? I used to be able to press the power button and see the second hand advance 20 seconds. Now I never have enough...


I am going to make an assumption or two. One is you wear your watch regularly. At least every other day. Two is you are not sedentary. Try wearing the watch for three days. If the power indicator doesn't read at least 15 to 20 you have a bad cell (capacitor). If it does charge up to 15 to 20 then see if it lasts very long. Should last a couple weeks or more. If not then you still have the same problem. You can also go to a watchmaker and he will have a piece of equipment that can charge your cell in 3 1/2 hours. Then if the cell goes dead rapidly he/she will replace it. Should cost around 50 or less.

How to prevent water leaking inside,after replacing the batteries.. should i replace the gasket to? after replacing the batteries....


Normally gasket has not to be replaced after battery change.But all depends of the use.For example if you wear the watch in salt or pool water and never flash it with fresh, clean water after,it may be a cause of gasket wear.Remove the back cover.Replace all 4 batteries(be sure first that you can do this with extreme caution as all parts are tiny).Remove gasket.Check gasket condition(cracks,gasket too dry and hard).If gasket OK, apply a small amount of special silicon compound for watch gaskets,all around and to all sides of the gasket,put it back in place,carefully.Be sure that gasket is set correctly all around.Put the back cover in place and screw with much caution (not too tight-a little resistance).Your watch now normally is water resistant.But if you want to be 100% sure,take the watch to a serious repair center where it will be tested under pressure ( 3 Atm average).Then they will tell you if your watch is 100% water resistant.

I bought my relic watch last year around christmas time it claims on the back of my watch it is water resistant up to 165 meters i haven't even gone close to that depth for the past 3 months or so my...


The most common failure of a watch to be water resistant is caused by a faulty contact between the case at an opening around the glass, crown, or pushbutton and the opening's gasket. Worn or defective rubber O-rings are often a cause of failure. Condensation forming under the crystal of a watch following a sharp temperature change (a swim after a stretch in the sun, for example) tells you to have the watch checked without delay. This can be an indication of additional moisture elsewhere inside the case. It is also the only water-tightness check a consumer can perform.
Of course non-water-resistant watches don't contain the additional seals and gaskets found on water-resistant models. Consequently, moisture-laden air can easily enter the case. Once inside, a pronounced change in temperature may cause condensation to form under the crystal. Very little can be done to prevent this. A high-quality water-resistant watch, however, properly serviced and maintained, will be sealed to prevent internal water damage and will more than outlast an ordinary watch.
To keep the watch properly sealed, replace any defective parts , such as gaskets, crystals, and crowns. Water-resistant watches should be tested for case tightness at least once a year, as well as every time the watch is opened, such as when a battery is replaced.

Do you wear it daily? Sometimes a customer will put their Eco in a drawer and it will stop. First try setting it under a flourescent light for 48 hrs as close as you can get it to the light...not incandescent because it gets too hot and can damage the dial! If it still doesnt go then you probably do need a new capacitor!

Watch stopped running when not worn for days. turned crown 20 times per Raymond Weil manual, did not work.


Make sure you are turning the crown clockwise and stop winding when you feel the tension increase. Also, try wearing it for a day even if it is not runninr; the motion may be enough to get it going if it is an automatic.
There may be something more wrong with your watch.
If the RW is less than 2 years old you should be covered, they have one of the best warranties in the business.
If it needs repair and is older than 2 years, I would still send it to the RW repair center in NY to see what they can do.

Do it yourself. There is no need for any repairs - you just have to put the chain back on wheel. Take a look on another chain in the clock and put the slipped chain back on wheel exactly in the same way as another chain. Use tweezers to reach the chain.

There is no way to answer your question without my being able to see the watch and opening it up. It may or may not need a new movement, just some regular maintenance. You can email me if you want: chiefo@wbcable.net
