Removing crown and reattaching arms

The hands have come unattached on my Boluva quartz watch. I am hoping to re-attach them. But when I remove the back I cannot get to the arms because I cannot remove the crown.

    I do not have the directions anymore and I doubt they had advice on this sort of repair.

    The reason I applied to FixYa was to avoid the expense of taking it somewhere. It is an old watch.

    I see some sort of washer or pin on the stem between the watch case and the crown. Is this what needs to be removed?

    I do not understand. How can a latch be holding the arms in place?

    I have to remove the crown so I can lift out the works to get to the watch face and the arms.

    It helped much more than the previous two. Thank you. My challenge now is to get the hands re-installed correct.

I dont think you have to remove the crown to get to the arms. If you observe cleanly you will notice that the arms are held in place by a latch on the side. That is what you have to remove to replace the arms. Good Luck!

On most watches there is a very tiny screw next to the crown that you can turn to remove the crown.

Here is a tutorial on how to take apart watches with pictures to help you as well.

Hope this helps!

Generally an LCD watch is not affected by magnetism. A mechanical or quartz watch will be effected. My advice is to set a magnet on the watch and see what happens. A mechanical and quartz(or any watch with analog hands) will stop. Michael

Should i pull the crown to save battery if i store my quartz watch for a few months


I don't think storing a watch with the crown out accomplishes much. That I am aware of, pulling the crown out does not break the electrical connection between the battery and the watch. At least in looking at quartz movements, I don't see any electrical apparatus that insulates the crown in any way so that it could act as a switch. I think that in quartz watches that hack, pulling the crown out mechanically disengages or interferes with the drive train, but it doesn't stop the oscillator or stepper motor from running.
With quartz movements, at least those I have seen the internals of, (most ETA and ISA designs, some Rondas, a few Seikos), pulling the crown to the setting position does one of two things:
1) On better, jeweled movements - it breaks contact between the coil and battery, thus stopping the motor. The oscilator continues to be powered, but most of the current consumption is from the motor. These pulling the crown out does save battery life. Or,

2) On cheaper non-jeweled movements - it blocks the rotation of the second hand gear, and stalls the motor. These are observable by a "twitchy" second hand when the stem is out. This method actually kills the battery faster, as a stalled electric motor draws more current.

Reset tank franchase cartier


Not completely sure what is being asked.

If what is being asked is how to reset chronograph hands to their zero point on a quartz watch then do the following:

1) Pull the crown out to the setting position.

2) press the chronograph buttons. Each one will move a different hand.

3) Once the hands are set push the crown back in.

Normally the zero point needs to be reset after a battery change or if the battery in the watch is getting weak.

Hope this helps.

2003 deer pocket watch Al Agnew is it wind up or Battery


Often with battery powered watches the word "Quartz" will be written on the dial. In the abscent of that you can look at the mechanism inside (typically by removing the case back).

Alternately (this may not be an absolute confirmation) with the winder in neutral position i.e. pressed all the way in, turn the crown (winding button) and if it spins freely it's probably quartz. Because unless it's broken most mechanical watches click as the watch is
wound up (except some automatics which cant be crown wound).

Plus if it's working and left unworn for a few days yet continues to run it's probably quartz.
Please rate this solution.

Actually the sweep arm can be set to 0 and will probably have to be every time you have the battery replaced. To set the sweep arm pull the stem and crown out to the first or second set position then press and hold down the start button. The sweep arm will move into position and you can let go of the button when it is where you want it. Make sure to set the right time and replace the crown in the time position.

Great watch!!

Can't get my croton watch to work.


There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:
  1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead battery in them).
  2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
  3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!

How do I change the date on a Colibri Pocket Watch?


Usually all quartz watches are supplied with calendar setting mechanism and it is very simple-
try to pull out crown and you will notice that there are two clicks,so, when the crown is pulled out to the first click, the date can be adjusted by the turn of the crown. When crown is pulled further out (second click)- the watch is in hand setting position and you can adjust time.

Re-set quartz chronograph sweeping second hand


Easy Soultion worked for me. Believe Me I was worried only had the Seiko Sportura for a week now. My second dial for the stopwatch was re-setting to 5 seconds instead of zero. The Solution is
1. pull the Crown all the way out ( In the position you take the crown to set the time , second click ).
2. To set the minute face of stop watch , keep pressing the top button untill it is zero. To set the second needle to zero keep pressing the bottom button untill it reaches zero or where you like it to re-set each time. Depend on you.
3. Once all neddles of stopwatch are at resting postions ( usually zero) secure the crown back to its normal postion. Test your stop watch , hopefully it will go back to zero when you press the reset button. C
