How to clean a twist-o-flex watchband
If you can take the band off the watch do it, if you can't that's ok you just have to be a little more careful. I take a 1/2 cup of HOT water, 1/4 cup of Mr. Clean, and 1/4 cup of ammonia. Hook you watch on a cup so it isn't able to slip into the cup, and let it sit for about 10 min. Take a tooth brush and spread open the links and brush away! Make sure after you brush it that you rinse off REALLY good because if you don't you will find that dust and whatever will stick to the band becuse it will be sticky because of the cleaner. If you find you have anymore problem please feel free to ask. I have been cleaning jewelry , watchbands, and watch cases likr this for twenty years , it works well.
Cannot re-attach back cover - WR30M
Yeah, I had this problem on a Timex Indiglo, but didn't have it on the cheap $20 watches in drug stores and discount stores. Timex puts a tighter cap on the back, probably for quality reasons, and you cannot push it together by your thumb. --This solution should work for about anyone: 1. Put the watch face down on a hard surface, but protect the crystal from scratching by putting a piece of cardboard or cloth between them. 2. Align the back and put a socket from a socket set on it that is somewhat smaller than the back cap. 3. Tap the socket with a hammer. You don't need to tap hard--even less than what would start a small nail. It may take only one tap--getting it aligned right is the key.
Hi Sir...Thanks. The Hairspring is pretty clean.
If the hairspring is perfectly clean (pretty clean is not good enough), then you have to observe it by using magnification eyeglass. Check out if the coiled parts are touching each other while the balance wheel is in motion. If that happens you need to recoil/repair hairspring and make coiling perfectly even. Also check out if the hairspring is touching balance wheel or coc;k. It must not touch anythining and must expand and retract freely. Coc;k is the bridge on which the hairspring stud and regulator (index) is fitted. When this is sorted but the problem still persists, get back to me again I'll guide you through the next stage of possible solutions.
