I have a Field & Stream Watch, Model F42GUBS. It has not worked for some time. I am assuming it needs a Battery, however, i see that it is a Quartz Battery and I am not familiar with buying and replacing these. Would this most likely be the reason it is not working? And, where can i get it fixed or can i do myself?

Re: Field & Stream Mens Watch, F42GUBS
Take the watch to a jeweller. They should have all the batteries and seals and tools necessary for the job, and it rarely takes long or costs that much. you could probably manage yourself, but getting the seals especially is easiest through a jeweller anyway.
Most likely reason for any watch to be not working is the battery, the next would be moisture inside - normally visible round the screen/face. always worth replacing the battery to see, unless the watch cost less than the battery, which it didn't.
Hope this helps :)

Olga, make sure the crown in pressed in all the way, if this doesn't get it running then you may need a new cell (battery). I am assuming it is a battery powered watch. Your description describes about a billion watches, Michael
I suggest that your watch has an oxidized contacts and electricity can not reach the movement. Do as folloes: Take out the batttery, Clean (scrape) all battery related contacts till they are shiny (use hardened steel needle for that), Use the dust blower to get rid off any tiny dust and dirt particles after cleaning, Refit the battery back. Now your watch should work again. If all written above do not help, then there is a problem with your watch and you will need the help of the watchmaker. Do not forget to rate, please.

You an change the batteries of your field and stream wrist wach by going to the back and gently getting the flip covering the backside of the wrist watch and there you will see the battery which needs replacement, you know replace the old battery with a new one recommended for field and stream F116GWBS
