SOURCE: How do I remove the stem from the automatic

mcdevito75 here, You can remove the stem from your Seiko watch fairly easiky, however if your not familiar with the inside of a watch, I wouldn"t attempt it as you can easily destroy the watch. If you are a bit familiar with the workings of a watch, at least know that this is the balnce wheel, this is the hairspring, gear train etc. when you look at the workings of your watch then you should have no problem. If you are not familiar with the watches works I wouldn"t attempt it. But here goes, Lay the watch crystal down on some paper towels, clth. etc. something to cushion the watch, after you remove the back cover, and Movement cover, note the stem and it"
s position in the watch, just about next to the stem as it goes into the watch movement you"ll see a very small screw, veery small, with Jewelers screwdriver turn that screw 1 full turn, Gently try to remove the stem, do not use any force, if the stem does not come out, give 1 more turn on that screw, try to remove stem again, if not, give half turns on that screw 1 at a time, after each half turn try to remove stem. When the stem does come out do not touch that screw anymore. DO NOT REMOVE THAT SCREW FROM THE MOVEMENT, AS THE MECHANISM HOLDING THE STEM IN THE WATCH IS UNDER THE FACE (DIAL) 1 full turn on that screw the half turns, checking after each turn to remove the stem. You should have a magnifier glass and jewelers screwdrivers to do this job, all available over ebay. If your not familiar with watches, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for repairs.

The time set(wind pin) came out of my watch and i was woundering how much the part is. also how unique are these pins from one watch to another?


The only way to know the exact amount a new stem (wind pin) is, is to find out the type of movement that is in your watch. Typically, my husband would charge the jewelry store, $10-15.00 to replace the stem, in turn the jewelry store will double that, to make their profit. These pins are unique to the type of movement you have. hope this helps!

HOW TO START YOUR AUTOMATIC WATCH


mcdevito75 here,The Automatic feature in your WATCH consists of a counter-weight attached to the MAIN SPRING by a gear that allows a SLOW but steady wind of your watch with the motion of your WRIST, ARM. Once, only in HIGH END watches, today almost all watch manufacturers have this feature in some of their models. Everyone who owns an AUTOMATIC watch knows, you can START your AUTOMATIC watch by WINDING THE STEM and you can continue to wind the stem with no end. This will at least START your AUTOMATIC watch and, this is true to some extent BUT, does this apply to my watch you ask?, Here"s how to tell if your AUTOMATIC watch will START with a few winds of the stem or not. ------- Very Simply, Hold your AUTOMATIC watch to your ear and wind the stem, if you hear a sound as though something is DRAGGING or the stem feels slightly stiff one way you wind the stem and you hear a clicking sound when you wind in the other direction, then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that will start with a few winds of the stem, approx, 20 turns or winds. If on the other hand you hear nothing when you wind the stem and the stem feels very loose when turnning then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that winds only with the motion of your wrist / arm, to start this type of AUTOMATIC watch, simply hold the watch in your hand and rock your watch back and forth, say from the 12 O"clock to the 6 O"clock, and or, Hold your watch securely in your hand a make circular motions with your hand, any movement to get your watches counter-balance to turn and thus wind your watch. Approx. 1 minute of this extra motion will start your AUTOMATIC watch, then simply wear your watch and your wrists / arm motion will keep it wound.

I do not know how to wind up my watch, while a swing to a later no.Please answer me.Model hours a Seiko Kinetic 5M62-0B40.Thank you


This watch operates on a capacitor which is charged by movement. It does not wind, but it has a weight that charges the capacitor by motion.

Take the watch in hand by placing your fingers under the caseback and your thumb on the crystal. Use a horizontal motion (landscape) to move the watch back and forth quickly approximately one foot left and right. You should feel the internal weight move.

Do this for at least five minutes. If the watch does not start to operate (the second hand does not move at one second increments) then either the capacitor must be replaced, or the movement is defective.

You may send the watch directly to Seiko for service, or I would strongly suggest visiting your local Certified Master Horologist for what is usually a free assessment and estimate of the repair.

If you are following the above directions, you have done nothing wrong, but the movement or capacitor needs to be replaced.

If you have just purchased this watch and the instructions do not resolve your situation, I would promptly return it and exchange it, as the model may have been sitting for a while, and have a bad capacitor.

Watch is new out of the box. Movement will not start. ???


mcdevito75 here, If your Wittnauer is a Quartz movement, look for a small piece of plastic, just under the crown (winder) remove this piece of plastic carefully and push the crown back down to start your watch, if it's an automatic movement, try to wind with the stem if you feel a resistance then winding will initially start yor watch by winding with 20--30 winds, if you feel no resistance when winding the simply rock your watch back and forth in your hand, you will detect something moveing inside the watch, this is the counter balance winding the watch, rock the watch back and forth for approx. 30 seconds to start an initial wind.

I have 4 seiko watches that no longer work. Most unreliable watch


mcdevito75 here, hello Diane, I'm afraid your jeweler is correct, and so are you. It is adviseable to pull the stem out to save the battery BUT, only if your not going to wear your watch for a long time, not just over night, here"s the problem!! the quartz mechanism and most of the works are plastic, and plastic while fairly flexable when new, gets hard over time, your pulling the stem to stop the watch everyday or even once a week most likely broke the switch in the mechanism that starts the watch, if so your only option is to replace the movement if you can get one. Pull the stem to stop your watch only if your not going to wear your watch for say 2 weeks toa month.

Adjusting day/date on a self winding Seiko, 7S2GB


mcdevito75 here, Your stem has 1 positions to set the date easily without haveing to cycle the watch 60 times. First pull the stem out to set the day, set the day 1 day before the day you want, next, push the crown back in, NOW! Slip a finger nail just under the crown from the back as there is more room, it may take some practice so be patiernt and gently, gently lift the crown to it"s first position, once in it"s first position turn the stem and see the DATE change, set the DATE to 1 DATE before the DATE you want, NOW pull the stem out to set the day date and time of day. Your watch is set and the day date will change on time, a little past mid nite.

Need to remove winder on mens seiko titanium so i can remove the


Ensure crown is in neutral position i.e. pressed home (not in set hands posn.) Remove back and adjacent to the winding stem on the movement there should be a small button (may be indicated with an arrow) depress this gently whilst withdrawing the crown and stem from the watch. Ensure you don't engage to set hands position in the process. You might also find a couple of screws securing the movement into the case. P.S. Usually don't need to remove from case to replace battery.
