The minute hand is loose and just rotates with the direction u move it.how do I fix it


Well, it is time for your lesson in "watch repair, 101."
Most all watches and clocks have the hands press on the various stems that stick out from the face.
There are usually 3.
The smallest diameter is also the longest, and is for the second hand. Next largest is between the middle shaft and the outer shaft, and is for the minutes.
The largest diameter shaft, usually the shortest, is the hour hand. Usually each hand presses on the correct shaft.
You'll likely need a magnifying class and a gentle touch.
God bless your efforts.

The hour hand doesn't move


try opening the glass over the hands and pressing down on the hub of the hour hand
they are a press on fit with slots cut in the sides and will slip if the hub is loose on the hour shaft
place the minute hand and the hour hand at 12 o'clock first so that the minutes will always be in the right position on the hour.

70's Era Automatic 2686 minute hand gets stuck


It sounds as though the minute hand is not parallel to the watch face and is getting caught on the hour markers (or 'batons') - it's probably a little loose or maybe slightly bent.
It should be a relatively easy fix but it requires skill and knowledge to do it - not difficult for a watch repairer but close to impossible for your average man in the street.
If you value this watch, take it to a professional to sort it out.

The minute hand spins freely. how do i fix this?


Your hands need to be reset. It is possible that you have dropped your watch or have knocked it on something to make them come loose. You need to take it into a jeweler or a watch repair person to have it fixed because they will need to open the watch up to solve the problem.

Mk 5473 watch is loosing time


Okay, so I'd the watch dial says automatic or manual wind you should be able to wind the watch to get it to start working. If the second hand is sweeping buy the minute and hour or just minute hand does not go around properly there are different issues. One. It could be the pinion that is loose, (major repair) two, the watch needs an overhaul meaning cleaned and re oiled(less likely). If only minute hand is giving trouble, its loose(the 2nd hand) or the pinion is loose.

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!

The minute and hour hands are "out of sync"... the


The problem that you describe--misalignment of the hour and minute hands--would be fixed in the way you'd describe--the watch movement would be removed from the case, and the hands would be removed from their pinions and placed down more accurately. This is a relatively minor repair if you have the right tools, but it's not something I recommend for the average DIY person.

The first challenge is removing the watch movement from the case. Some movements drop out easily, but others are kept in place by the crown and setting stem. These must be removed in a way that they can be re-inserted. Simply pulling them out by brute force usually damages the internal set lever; different movements have different mechanisms for releasing the stem.

The second challenge is removing the hands. Attempting to "slide" the hands on their pinions runs a high risk of damaging the pinions by making one or both of them oval instead of round. Very little force is applied to the pinions, so even a slight distortion can mean that your watch will start to hang up at odd times when friction is stronger than the force being put out by the watch movement. Even worse, it's possible to break one of these little parts--they're very strong, but they're also very brittle. A tool called, naturally enough, a "hand remover" is used to pull the hands straight up off their gears; they're then pushed back into their correct place.

For a qualified watchmaker or watch repair technician, this is a simple and inexpensive repair that should take them only a few minutes once they get around to actually paying attention to your watch. Given the high risk of damage to your watch if you haven't done this before and if you don't have a hand removal tool, I would suggest that you outsource this repair instead of attempting it yourself. I have ruined more than a few watches in the course of practicing this repair; it doesn't take much force to damage these delicate parts!

The strap is buckled at one of the hinges on the stainless steel bangle this has happened before and the jeweller fixed it within minutes. does anybody know the technique of how to fix it? thanks mandy


mcdevito75 here, Hi Mandy, a special Spring bar remover / installer tool is needed then the spring bar itself, the spring bar holds the band onto the watch, best bet, return to the jeweler for repair.

Mintues hand problem.


There are two reasons for this. First- you distorted minute hands hole and now it is not sitting tightly on pinion. Second- when you pulled off the minutes hand, you lifted cannon pinion. As the result it is loose and swings freely. I do understand you have no knowledge how the watches are build, so, visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to fix it. Please, do not take it personally - it is just because you can't do that without watchmakers knowledge, so, save your nerves, time and watch. Rate me, plz.

The hour and minute hand are sliding around the face of watch every time I move my arm. The second hand is still moving correctly. Thanks.
