Hi.

The primary distributor for Wittnauer parts is Bulova. They manufacture Wittnauer watches. Find the contact starting from their global page: Bulova - Bulova Homepage.

There are also several third party Wittnauer parts distributors. Here two links:

Wittnauer - WatchPart.co.uk - Quality Supply


Wittnauer : Watch Parts Supply

Sometimes parts can also be purchased used from Ebay. Here an example. At the moment I did not find parts for your Savoy listed on Ebay.

Call Bulova or one of the distributors listed above to find parts price and availability.

Regards.

I have a wittnauer wrist watch , serial number 520556. How old is it and what model.


Not every watchmaker can be as renowned for its movements as LeCoultre or as admired for its designs as Cartier. Some watchmakers get their start simply by seeing an opportunity and seizing it.

Such is the story of Albert Wittnauer, who came to America from Switzerland in 1872 at the age of 16. Even as a youth, Wittnauer knew watchmaking, which made him a useful addition to his brother-in-law J. Eugene Robert's Swiss-watch importing business. Over the next few years, two more of Wittnauer's younger brothers and a sister would join him in New York City, forming the nucleus of Robert's, and then Wittnauer's, company.

The opportunity Wittnauer identified was not technological. Rather, it was market driven. Wittnauer saw an opening for a less-expensive Swiss pocket watch in the United States. Since Robert was already importing watches from Switzerland, including Longines, it was not a large leap to add a Wittnauer-branded model to the company's offerings. The watches sold well. By 1885, Albert was running the company, importingchronographs and repeaters, and by 1890 the firm was renamed the A. Wittnauer Company.

While Wittnauer got its start with an economy model, it quickly moved into more rarefied terrain, creating highly sophisticated chronometers. The company's breakthrough came in 1907, when Wittnauer supplied a pair of watches to the Navy, which was testing its aviation capabilities. Perhaps because of this very early alignment with the budding aviation industry, Wittnauer watches would be worn by such notable explorers as Roald Amundsen and Richard E. Byrd, as well as aviators from Amelia Earhart to Wiley Post.

After Albert's death in 1916, his sister, Martha, took the firm's reins. During World War I, Wittnauer supplied new military wristwatches and precision navigational devices to American Expeditionary Forces and an aircraft clock to the forerunner of the U.S. Army Air Corps. Around the same time, Wittnauer introduced its All-Proof wristwatch-the anti-magnetic watch was water and shock proof-to the U.S. market.

In the 1920s, Wittnauer produced wristwatches that were technologically advanced as well as aesthetically beautiful. The lugs of Wittnauer wristwatches were one of many details its designers did not take for granted, and the shapes of the faces varied from squares and rectangles to circles and hexagons, as in the gold Grasshopper.

Aviation watches, though, remained a prime focus. In 1927, Wittnauer and Longines both worked with a U.S. Navy officer named Philip Van Horn Weems, whose design for a Second Setting Watch included an inner, rotating dial. The aviator would move the dial until he heard a time-tone on his radio, thus capturing any deviations from Greenwich Civil Time.

Another influence on Wittnauer timepieces of this era was Wittnauer watchmaker John Heinmuller, who was the official timekeeper of the U.S. National Aeronautical Association and became one of the country's leading authorities on U.S. air mail stamps. Because of all this attention to navigation wristwatches and devices, Clarence D. Chamberlin and Charles A. Levine used Wittnauer chronometers for their 1927 trans-Atlantic flight (they flew two weeks after Lindbergh) and Charles Collyer and John Henry Mears used two Wittnauers in 1928 when they famously raced the moon around the earth-they did it in 24 days, beating the moon by 72 hours.

More aviators, Howard Hughes among them, wore Wittnauers in the 1930s, but the company struggled during the Depression, prompting its sale, in 1936, to a pearl manufacturer, who renamed the company Longines-Wittnauer. World War II provided Wittnauer with contracts for Weems wristwatches, as well as compasses and timers, and after the war it produced wristwatches that utilized technologies created for the conflict.

In the 1950s, Wittnauer turned some of its resources to fashionable dress wristwatches. As in years past, the lugs of Wittnauer wristwatches such as the Revue were almost as important to the design as the face. By now the company was offering slimmer self-winding watches than it had in the past, and in 1957 it released its first electric wristwatch.

Westinghouse bought Longines-Wittnauer in 1969, in 1994 Longines was sold to Omega owner SMH, and in 2001 Wittnauer was sold again to Bulova.

Battery on m Invict Pro Diver watch replaced , now the second hand stays swinging back and forth in the same place


Do the minute and hour hands keep proper time? I've seen your problem before when the hand has come loose from the center post that turns it. You probably need someone who knows what they are doing to pull the crystal and reseat the second hand. Do this when the watch is off!

Well, thats a good watch. however, based on the conditions of your watch, probably, its battery is not dead. some of its mechanism were not in place or broken. Repairing it is advisable. Afterall it has no scratches like what you've said. So go for repair men!

Don't know what battery but a watchmaker will be able to help you for a very reasonable cost. He will also inspect the rest of your watch, case and band. Your watch will likely need the chronograph reset also.

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.

My Wittnauer is jumping every 5 seconds


Your watch is fitted with EOL feature and let you know about insufficient battery power by moving seconds hand by 2-5-second increments. You have about two weeks time to change the battery from the EOL engagement or your watch will start to malfunction or even stop. In this case you will have to reset your watch after battery replacement. EOL = End Of Life (relates to battery only). Jumping seconds hand means it's time to change battery.

I have a stainless steel wittnauer watch with chronograph and instead of being set on the :30 mark, it is set on the :01 mark on the stopwatch. i need it back to :30


Pull out crown and press and hold one of the pushers (depends on a movement model). Try till you see chrono hand moving and reset it by using correct pusher. Every time you try a different pusher - push crown in, then pull out and try again.

Clean a watch


Watch cases and bracelets are cleaned in ultrasonic cleaning maschine with the help of special clening liquids.
Mechanical watch movements and mechanical parts of quartz and analog watches are cleaned in special watch cleaning maschines in 3-5 cleaning stages and cleaners.
Electronic parts, circuit boards, LCD screens are cleaned by hand using specialy made cleaning solutions for each individual part.
To do all this you need a watchmakers skills as the watch must be disassembled completely.
Do not forget to rate, please.
