Remove the winding stem/crown.

I have a Fossil AM3982, ladies watch. The numeral 2 at the 12 position has come off and is floating around. I have removed the back and the plastic insulator exposing the battery. now how do I remove the stem to remove the works to gain access to the face?
Thanks Joe

There is a tiny point (end of small metal piece called setting lever) on the left side of the stem (on watch movement, very close where the stem is entering the movement).
You have to push that point down with a metal pin or tweezers. Crown (winder) must be pushed in to normal position otherwise you will not be able to put the stem back properly.
So, do as follows:
1) Push the crown in,
2) Lay the watch down on flat surface and push on setting lever point,
3) While holding setting lever pushed in- extract the setting lever by gently pulling crown out of watch.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Are there six indentations around the back? You'll need a special tool for that.

I sent a watch in for a warranty claim in December and have not received one back the number eight had came off inside the face and was floating inside it


You will need to contact Fossil since you sent it in to them. They will be able to help you out. Make sure you have documentation that proves you sent the watch in, or it will be difficult to get the watch back.

I have a Fossil Arkitekt wristwatch (FS-2919). on of the hands on one of the three tiny dials has come loose and is floating around the face. I probably wouldn't care, but the main watch hands get caught...


You will have to remove the back off the watch (cant take off the face). You MIGHT be able to access the hand from there, but you may have to adjust some of the watch inner movement and that will be risky but you can try.
Goood luck

I changed the battery in my Fossil ladies watch and it still will not keep time. The hands are going around but it is not keeeping up with the time


mcdevito75 here, Look for a small watcg repir shop in your area. It could be the mechanism is going bad. If you changed the battery for this problem and you have the same problem, then the quartz is ging bad, (the mechanism)

mcdevito75 here, Just had the battery changed, if the watch was running fine before the last battery died, and now with this battery change the watch can"t keep time, try another battery as any Battery can be weak just from storage.

Purchased fossil ladies watch am4183 at Macy's, stainless steel band is too big, is this band adjustable, if so how.


Check the sides of watch band and you will see the pin ends. They are holding all links together. If there are arrows inside the watch band, they are pointing the way the pins must come out.
To shorten the band you have to:
Extract the pins.
Take link(s) off.
Join the rest of band together and drive pins back.

Hi, My ladies black and siver ladies bracelet watch is not keeping time. first the plate in the face kept moving position according to the movement of my wrist. Then it stopped keeping time, so I took it...


I would send it to Fossil anyways. You say the plate is moving, I'm thinking that's the dial (the thing with the Fossil logo and # on it) That is deffinantly under a warrenty. Fossil is pretty good with helping even if you don't have the paperwork, and don't live in the United States. Look them up on the internet, and if you can call first they will give you a # so when you send the watch they already know what to do and can start fixing your watch faster. Tell me what happens , or if I can assits you further. Good Luck!!!
