If the stem does not lock in, will it still be waterproof?


You need to get out your jeweler's loupe (best at 5x & 10x)... and look for the threads to "*****" (ski-rue) down your winder-stem (not a lock).

(Features a Ski-rue down crown & back case)

YOU can pretty much be assured that if the "stem" collar is malfunctioning (broken) the "water-proof" element is compromised (that's most likely the least of your troubles).

More importantly... if the STEM does not properly "tighten" it can
cause further damage against gears which MUST align with it... further it can come all the way out and be lost... Not an inexpensive part.

Best direction would be to get it serviced by an authorized agent.

The winding knob does not lock when I press and turn


That means you need a new stem. Stem problems are fairly common on Quartz Tag Heuer watches. Should not cost you more than $100.

I have a FOSSIL mens wristwatch model # AM3423. I recently had a watch repair person replace the battery. Battery type and charge confirmed. I received the watch used as a gift from a relative who was...


Quartz watches stop working most often for one of three reasons: (1) dead battery; (2) dirt in the gears blocking the train; and (3) a bad crystal. This is the order in which I typically troubleshoot watches.

If the watch isn't working after you change the battery, first check to see that the stem is fully pushed in. A watch movement can shift just enough inside the case that a stem sometimes looks pushed in, but isn't quite in far enough to re-engage the movement. Pull out and push in the stem a few times to see if that changes anything.

Next, assuming that the battery is indeed fine, look closely at the second hand. Is it moving at all, even a tiny bit? Hold the watch up to your ear. Is there any kind of "chunk" sound about once every second? If you can answer "yes" to either of these questions, a speck of dirt has gotten into the movement and is preventing the gears from moving freely. It doesn't take more than a a big spec of dust to cause this. Sometimes, advancing the time will move the gears enough to cause the dirt to fall out. Some watch repair places also have a special machine that spins the hands rapidly to blow out or compact any dirt in the train. It's usually not economically rational to have the movement professionally cleaned beyond this point.

Finally, if you don't hear anything coming from your watch, the battery is good, and the setting stem is pushed firmly and completely into the watch movement, you may have a bad quartz timing crystal. It does happen, and when it does, the only repair is to replace the entire watch movement. Sometimes, that's affordable; sometimes, it just doesn't make sense.

Good luck!

My watch keeps stoping but my battery is new


If your watch keeps time for a while, then stops and starts erratically, you most likely have one of several common problems.
1. You might have a bad battery. Sounds silly, but watch batteries have a limited shelf life, and if you installed a battery that's already been in a blister pack for a few years, the battery itself could be the problem.
2. Your "set stem" is not completely pushed in. Quartz watches are designed to stop ticking when the set stem is pulled out. They'll start up again when you push the stem completely in. There's a little finger or spring-loaded prong to keep the stem in or out. Sometimes, that little prong can break off from natural use. When that happens, the stem will work itself out enough to stop the watch from ticking. Natural movement on your hand will push it back in, and the movement will take off again. Check to see that you feel a firm "click" when you push the stem all the way in. Sometimes, when changing a battery, the movement will shift inside the case just enough that the stem doesn't quite catch in the locked, "full-in" position.
3. Your battery has a bad connection. Make sure that the positive and negative terminals of the battery are in good contact with the appropriate surfaces. I have used a tiny piece of aluminum foil at times to increase pressure on the watch battery so that it makes better contact.
4. Your watch movement has dirt in it that is jamming the gears. Modern quartz watches are amazing devices--a tiny amount of force from the pulse motor operates an intricate gear system that moves all the watch hands and day/date wheels. Even a tiny speck of dust in the wrong place on a gear can gum up the works and cause a watch to start and stop. Usually this will happen at set time intervals or at the same time every day, because that's when a particular gear tooth comes into play.
Closely related to this is an actual bent or broken gear tooth. Same symptoms.
A watchmaker can test the gear train by placing your watch in a special testing machine that spins the gears much faster than usual. If the watch hangs up from time to time, it's suggestive of problems in the gear train. Sadly, fixing the problem by cleaning the watch may cost more than replacing the entire watch.
These are the most common causes for this behavior. Hands that rub up against one another, or a defective quartz crystal are two other potential causes, but this should serve as a fairly good checklist for obvious problems.
Good luck!

Ladies quartz watch stem winder knob lost lost how to remove from another to fix it?


mcdevito75 here, Best bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for another knob. As long as the stem is in place you just need the winding knob.

The hands have come off my fossil FS3087 wrist watch. I would like to know how to take off the glass in order to fix it myself. Thank you


mcdevito75 here, In most cases the glass (crystal) come off or out thru the back of the watch which means you"ll have to remove the quartz mechanism, and that means removeing the stem, thse quartz stems are very prone to breaking while being removed form the quatrz mechanism and the cost of a repair may be more expensive then a whole new watch, shop around get a price from a small watch repair shop on repair verses a new Fossil watch.

Removing the watch stem


Hi, it depends on the watch . Look carefully ,if there is a release button , somethin you can press on or lift up. Sometimes a needle is enough to do the job. On some quartz movements (the cheap ones) you just can't remove the stem ...
hope this will be helpfull!
