Question about Fossil Diesel Watch Style # DZ9018

Open Question

Diesel DZ9018 - Just purchased this automatic watch. Wound the crown/adjuster and the main watch display has started working but this watch has 2 more extra watch dials on the side of the watch for 2 extra time zones and cannot seem to get these to start working. They both have individual winding screws/time adjusters but tried winding and nothing is happening. This watch was bought new but not sure if it is faulty.

SOURCE: Display not working

If you remove the back, there is a reset button. Press the button and the display will change again. If this does not work, change the battery.

SOURCE: the watch stops instead of the chrono

On this type of watch the second should not be working unless you are in the chrono mode. The lower dial should be the only indication of the seconds when not in chrono mode. You probably need to have the chrono reset and shown how the functions work. Try a Fossil location they will be able to tell you how to work this watch. It does not sound like this is a major problem.

SOURCE: Adjusting the Band...the damn screws!

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

SOURCE: how to adjust a metal watch band

If you've got more than one watch, it's a good idea to buy the tools. Worst case, you can save them for a few years when you get a new watch, or let family and friends use them.
With the tools you simply remove the pin and take out or add links. It's a really simple process and you can easily do it in under 5 minutes. No need to pay someone to do this for you. I found a great guide here: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Size-a-Watch

The tissot visodate watch is automatic not battery driven.


I would not wind the watch manually. I also have a Tissot. If you cannot wear it often enough to keep it going, you can purchase a watch box that is made for self-winding watches which will turn the watch periodically in order to keep it wound.

I stop using mi nixon watch " THE 51-30" for a month and now it doesnt work.


Your watch is an automatic type which means that it is a mechanical self winding watch powered by a spring. It is wound up by a weight that moves when you are walking about and this watch must be worn to keep it operating.

If not worn, these watches will stop in 2 -3 days because the spring has run down.

Some automatic watches can be wound using the crown wheel (winder) but if yours cannot be wound in this way, then swing it from side to side gently for a few minutes and the watch will wind up.

These watches thrive on being used.

How do you get started to wind a BMW watch. There is no resistance when I wind the crown. There does nt seem to be any plastic or anything in the way. I ve set the date successfully. Its a BMW Chrono...


mcdevito75 here, BMW watch, nice watch, Actually there are 2 ways to start winding an automatic or self wind watch. Since you feel no resistance in the winder (crown) which if you did, would mean the automatic mechanism is attached by gear to the mainspring and winding the crown (stem) would start the winding process. Without any resistance winding the crown, your automatic mechanism is free-lance as a way of saying, in your watch which simply means your BMW watch winds solely on wrist / arm motion. First, make sure you hear the automatic mechanism moveing inside the watch when you move the watch in almost any direction, now simply hold the watch in your hand and with a rocking motion, say from 12--to 6 rock your hand back and forth for about 30 seconds. You can also make circular motions with the watch in your hand for 30 seconds, any motion that will cause the automatic movement in your watch to move will, start the winding process. After you see you watch has started, simply wear your watch to keep it wound.

Bvlgari sd 38 l 2161 is this watch battery or automatic brand new as gift not working email mailly@mweb.co.za


If the watch is automatic, it usually says so on the face of the watch.

I have looked at their web site and most of the models are automatic, although a few are manual or quartz.

If it is automatic, then you can wake it up by swinging it from side to side a large number of times. If you wear is daily, then it should keep working satisfactorily. If it is not used for 2 -3 days, then it will stop and you will have to shake it again to start it.

If it is a manual watch, then it can be wound up using the crown (winder).

If it is quartz, then these are usually working when sold (is the crown pushed in?) and if it doesn't work, it might be replaced under warranty.

If you need further help you can contact them http://en.bulgari.com/customer_service/customer_service.jsp?cat=cat00128#contactUs.jsp?cat=cat00131 and tell them your problem.

My wifes recently repaired Rolex loses about an


Is it an automatic self wind or wind up? An automatic watch has a weight that winds the main spring and if you wind it by the crown it will not stop. If its one that you wind by hand then the watch should be wound daily at the same time...like right before bed or when she wakes up. Wind gently until it stops. That costly repair should come with a warranty so if she consistently winds daily and still loses time you need to send it back!

If the watch is an automatic then she can gently hold the watch in her hand and rock it back and forth a good 20 times or so and that will give it a good winding! This is a common issue we see at our watch repair business. Some people do not move enough during the day to keep an automatic movement wound. If thats the case then there is nothing ong with the repair, just make sure it gets a good daily wind! :-)

How do I change the date on my invicta divers watch


The answer to your specific question is the 2nd instruction below...I've also included two other settings:
Here are the 3 main crown positions you need to know once you unscrew it from its locked down position:
1) unscrewed, it can be manually wound, in one direction [clockwise}...20 to 30 half-turns seems to be good to get it through the night.
2) then, pulled out one small stop, the date can be advanced by turning the crown towards you (ie, counterclockwise)
3) pulled out one more stop, the time is adjusted by turning the crown.
I hope this helps!

The watch stopped working


The Tag Heur repair center says an automatic watch must go through an "initiation" process. They recommend winding manually 40 revolution of the crown clockwise. You must wear an automatic watch at least eight hours per day. Repat the initiation if the watch is not worn for 20 hours or so.
