Go and see watchmaker as soon as possible or you will have to bin your watch very soon. That foggyness (condensate) in watch will soon disappear, but the movement of the watch is affected anyway and the rust works amazingly quick.
Rush in to your nearest watch repair shop and ask to dry out your watch. Unfortunately you can't do it yourself as the specific skills are needed.

Rate me, please.

I put my 1962 Omega Seamaster (leather band, dress watch) through the washing machine... any ideas?

If you wear it and do not see condensation on the crystal then it is likely OK. Many watches are at least water resistant which may keep water out for shallow immersion. You should not attempt to open these watches yourself as they are a bit trick from what I can find.

My watch face has suddenly become watery and foggy - I don't remember letting it get wet - please help

You need to remove the back plate and leave it sit in a warm, dry area for 24 hours to allow the moisture inside the watch to evaporate.

I have several old art deco watches that run but the dial faces have yellow spots. Can I do any type of cleaning to fix this safely.

Do not even try to clean. Any physical touch will destroy original colours and laquer. I'd advise to go to your nearest watch repair shop and do the estimate first. Then you will know what the each piece is worth. Only after estimate you can decide witch is the right one to clean. If the estimate is lower than $10 - you can put it in to your washing machine and just laugh about the struggle. Hope the rest of your watches have some value. :))) Rate me, plz.

My problem is my Citzen Eco Drive works but the WR100 seems to be off. I under the theory of WR as opposed to water proof but, should it really be getting foggy under the crystal after i wash my hand? On a...

These water proof watches are only water proof if the knob for setting the time is pushed all the way in. Try to call your Citizen dealer, if you read them the numbers on the back yhey can see if there is warranty to check the problem for free.
If you need to know more about your Eco Drive, look for detail tech manuals for all types here:

I have a Fossil JR8103 woman watch with leather strap and the face of watch is held on by two silver dots. I can't figure out how to get the face off so I can change the battery. Help!

DONT try to change a watch battery yourself unless you have crystal press to close it and thats if the case back pops off...if it screws on then you need a case wrench to open and close it! Better to seek out a local watch repair business and avoid Walmart! :-P They arent trained to repair watches...Ive fixed a lot of their mistakes!

HELP !! can't snap armitron watch cover back on

Take a small thin piece of cloth or paper towel, fold it and use to cover the watch face.  Put one quarter (coin) on top and one quarter (coin) on the bottom.  Place the sandwich in a pair of pliers, center thhe pliers and press, when you hear the snap, the back is on.  Do not use on a watch with a domed crystal, or at least use a lot more padding over the face.  Takes 10 seconds.

Glass foggy or has film on inside

The film is moisture, you may have to remove the back and let if evaporate. You need new seals as it is your sweat that is causing it.
