The crown is attached to the "stem" by screwing them together. The procedure, and this is not a good do it yourself project in most cases, is to remove the crown and the stem. Hold the stem in a "pin vise" and apply a threadlock to the threads and attach the crown. Install the crown and stem in the watch and check to see if everything still works(setting, time adjustment, etc.) Might pay to have a watchmaker do this, this is more technical than it seems.

How do I set the time on a professional tag heuer ladies watch


You have to unscrew the crown once it is unscrewed can you pull it out once for the day and twice for your time. Be sure to screw the crown back in when you're finished or else you'll get moisture inside.

I HAVE AN INVICTA PROFESSIONAL AUTOMATIC MODEL 3744 GIVEN TO ME BY MY SON.HOW DO YOU SET THE TIME ON IT? DOES THE STEM PULL OUT TO SET OR DOES IT UNSCREW? THANS


I was not able find information on your specific model; only 2010 models seem to be listed on the website.

Instruction Manual for Invicta watches:

http://www.invictawatch.com/support_files/instruction_manual/Manual-HiRes.pdf

Go to page 8 of this file to identify the instructions for your watch. For most watches the crown pulls out for setting either to postion 1 or position 2.

Some Invicata watches do have Screw Down Crowns but this would be most likey on a Diver model, to help prevent water infiltration. In order to adjust the date and/or time on such a watch, you must first unscrew the crown before you can gently pull it out to its first or second click stop position. To do this, simply rotate the crown counterclockwise until it springs open. When you have finished setting the watch, the crown must then be pushed in and screwed back in tightly. Not doing so will cancel the water resistance of the watch and will void all warranties from the manufacturer.

I can unscrew the crown completely out of the tag watch but how can i set date and time


The "Normal" is unscrew the crown, then gently pull the crown out very gently until you feel the first "CLick". THis is your date adjustment. Pull gently again, and you will feel another click, this is your time adjustment.

Cannot open clasp prestige replica rolex


1)Unscrew the crown until it pops out, the same way you would unscrew the crown to change the time on the watch.
2)Place the watch case opener in the notches around the outside of the back of the watch case. You have to use a watch case opener made for Rolex watches to open the watch. Once the case opener is in place, twist it and the back will pop open.
3)Use a mini screwdriver to loosen a tiny screw on the inside of the watch located near the stem. You do not need to unscrew fully--only loosen it.
4)Pull the crown straight out. The crown and stem should come out easily.
To open the back of the watch
1)Purchase a Rolex watch back opener set, if you do not already have one. This set is able to open and close any size of Rolex case.
2)Match the size of your Rolex case with the same size of grooved metal die from the tool set.
3)Put the metal die on the grooves on the back of the watch case.
4)Turn the die to remove the case.
5)Remove the rubber gasket.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

How can i make the date of my tag heuer formula 1 change automaticaly?


To s e t t h e t i m e a n d d a t e
Your TAG Heuer chronograph is fitted
with a screw-in crown and safety seals
which guarantee it to be waterproof
to 200 m (660 ft).
Position 0: Crown is screwed in
(normal position).
Important: The crown must be
screwed in correctly to guarantee
the water-resistance of the watch.
Position 1: Crown unscrewed.
To change the hour (change of time
zone) or date quickly, unscrew the
crown, pull it out to position 2 (quick
corrector) and turn it in either
direction. This mode allows you to
change the hour and the date without
any loss of minutes.
The date changes each time the
hour-hand passes midnight.
To set the time, unscrew the crown,
pull it out to position 3 (setting the
time) and turn it in either direction.
After setting the date or the
time, push the crown back and
screw in to position 0.

I cant pull out the date/time pin on my luminox 3204. any suggestions?


On some watches - scuba usually - the crown has a rubber seal and that seal is engaged when the crown is screwed to the case. If your watch is like this, you need to unscrew the crown before you can pull out the stem. Twist the crown in a counterclockwise direction several turns. You will be able to tell when it is completely unscrewed because youwill feel spring tension. Pull out the stem to set the watch. When you finish, push the stem back in. Push against the spring tension and carefully thread the crown back onto the case. That should do it.
