You need to get out your jeweler's loupe (best at 5x & 10x)... and look for the threads to "*****" (ski-rue) down your winder-stem (not a lock).

(Features a Ski-rue down crown & back case)

YOU can pretty much be assured that if the "stem" collar is malfunctioning (broken) the "water-proof" element is compromised (that's most likely the least of your troubles).

More importantly... if the STEM does not properly "tighten" it can
cause further damage against gears which MUST align with it... further it can come all the way out and be lost... Not an inexpensive part.

Best direction would be to get it serviced by an authorized agent.

It's an old accutron 214- manufactured 1967. Of course it depends on condition,but the 214 Accutron is very popular and even not working should bring around $50.00 if it is complete, no missing parts. It could possibly bring $75 or more.

Does my watch have a battery or do i have to wind it? I tried winding it but it still isnt working I just want to be sure before i bring it to a repair shop. I thank you in advance. Thomas


mcdevito75 here, If you try to wind your watch listen for the distinctive click, click as you wind, if you haer this click, click then it"s a a windup, if the stem just turns without the distinctive sound click, click. then it"s a battery watch, also look for any word on the watch that says Quartz. ONE more thing, you may have a screw down cover on the winding stem, un screw the cover on the stem to get to (the crown, winding stem itself) Most likely you have to un-screw this cover on the stem to get to the actuall stem itself, Invicta makes watches like this to add waterproofing to the watch.

Im applying pressure in the right direction but the pin wont budge


mcdevito75 here, I'm thinking you mean the stem (winder) Make sure stem is all the way in (flat on the watch) now turn the stem a little both ways, it could be locked down, if the stem turns and doesn't seem to be locked down, simply put a fingernail just under the crown and lift to set the time. If you mean the pin or spring bar to change the band, you"ll need a special tool to remove these pins or spring bars, the tool is available on ebay called a spring bar removal tool, or you can visit a small watch repiar shop in your area.

Unable to reset brietling colt, even after ajusting stem to 1st and 2nd postions.


mcdevito75 here, Let"s hope your description of the problem with your watch is wrong. Try this sequence, First, wind your watch, the automatic continues to wind your watch when you where it but to get it started, wind it 20--30 times. 2nd, your crown locks down, turn the stem Clockwise to un-lock it (the stem) now pull the stem all the way out then back in 1/2 way to set date. Set DATE to DATE before the real date turn crown counterclockwise. Now pull out crown all the way and turn clockwise to set the DATE and time (real Date) push the crown back in and turn counterclockwise to lock the crown. If this doesn"t work, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this adjustment.

Setting day/date on kenneth cole dual time watch I have a Kenneth COle KC1336 watch with analog hands, 2 digital displays, and it is also a stopwatch. Can't figure out how to change the day/date.


first, unscrew the stem lock. Then you can pull it out to the first "click". That is the "manual wind mode" if for some reason the auto-wind is not working due it has run all the way down. Pull it out again. That is the time set mode. The next "click" (pulling it out again) is the date set mode. Once you have them set, push the stem back in (past all clicks) and then re-screw the stem back to the lock position.

Stem came out, question water resistance of watch now


Hi
The crown or winder, should have a very small o ring inside it, which seals on the watch case. Normally when replacing the stem this o ring would be replaced and lubricated with silicone grease to ensure water tightness. If this was not done there is no guarantee that it will still be waterproof (please dont forget to rate my answer, thanks)

The crown is probably a screw down style. The screw down stem is designed to keep the water out and should be screwed shut when not adjusting the watch. Look at the watch stem from the side, look from the 3 oclock to the 9 oclock, you should see the end of the stem. Now turn the stem counterclockwise. After a number of turns, the stem should pop out a bit, it is now ready to set. Most waterproof automatic day/date watches have 4 positions for the stem:

1: screwed down (locked)
2: unscrewed position A
3: unscrewed position B (stem pulled out to first "click")
4: unscrewed position C (stem pulled out all the way.)

Position A:
This is usually used to wind the watch, although some automatic watches cannot be wound by the stem.

Position B:
Used to set day/date. Turning the stem one direction will advance the day and turning it the other direction will advance the date.

Position C:
Used to set the time. Some watches will "hack," a term used to describe the ability to stop the second hand for accuracy purposes.

Be sure the watch is at least a little bit wound before starting theis procedure or it will not run when you get it set!


Unscrew the stem and pull it all the way out to position C. Now turn the stem to advance the time clockwise. Continue turning until the day/date advances, now you know you are in the AM 12 hrs of the day. It is important not to advance the day/date with the stem during the 3 hours before and the 3 hours after midnight, so go ahead and move the time to 8 am.

Now push the stem in sligthly until you are in position B. Sometimes it is easier to go to position A, the out to position B. Once in position B, advance the day/date until it is set for the current day/date.

Pull the stem out to position C. Adjust the time to one minute past the current time. Watch your reference timepiece until it matches your watch and push the stem in when they match.

Your watch is now set! Screw the crown down and wear it in good health.


Hacking. If you stop the second hand at 0 seconds, and wait for your reference timepiece to reach 0 seconds also, you can set the watch to within a second accuracy.

Movement slop. If you advance the time past the time you wish to set your watch and then "backup" to your chosen time, you will remove the slop from the geartrain and make your watch set more accuretly

Eddie Bauer watch.


these watches are waterproof so the stem is screwed down to seal out water. Try turning the stem to unscrew it somewhat , then pull out the stem to set.
