Question about Smith & Wesson H3 Tritium Watch Blue
Help please , the second hand has fallen off and I want to repair it an easy job once I get inside it . Now I can make a tool to unscrew the back no problem but then I need to remove the knob that turns the hands . what do you reckon? If I take it to a watch repairer here in england they will charge more than a new one and as it is less than two years old I am reluctant to do that . Thanks Ray
Look at the back of the movement, as you pull out the knob ( the crown) you should see either to the left of the crown (in the movement) or one the outside of the movement (a little lower) you should see a piece of metal that moves every time you pull in and out. It also should have a little dimple on it ( it is called the detent). Take a pin(or something that small) and as you pull out the crown GENTLY push in on it, this should release the stem and crown. Then you should be able to take out the movement and fix the hands. When you are done GENTLY push the stem and crown back into the movement. If you find you have any problems PLEASE let me know, I will be glad to go over it with you as you do it. Good Luck!!!

This is so potentially dangerous to your watch and your wallet and your emotional well being that you should consider this two or three times before you attempt it!This is one of those "simple" looking jobs that can go south in a blink. You need a watchmaker to perform this repair. It is not an expensive fix but can turn into one rapidly if you make a mistake which is highly likely as your watch will be exposed to not only the environment but a totally unskilled mechanic.I am a pro and I see this as having a low percentage of success. Answers like these make me money!
