SOURCE: battery replacement in heart rate watch

Hello decksrnice & Guest, The battery should face 'IN' when placing in watch. The smaller size of the watch is the face. For Guest there is a flat type spring on the cover, carefully bend the spring to apply more pressure to the battery. Use a pencile eraser to clean the area the battery makes contact. If you bend the flat spring too far IT WILL BREAK.

SOURCE: no watch setting directions

Some of the inexpensive watches like to mimic the expensive watches and put fake dials on the face of the watch. That way you get a Breitling look alike at the price of a Timex. If there don't appear to be controls for the dials, chances are that they aren't real dials, Look closely.

Invicta watches either have screws or push pins. The one I sized yesterday had screws; it was tricky because I had to hold a flat head screwdriver on one side of the pin and then another screwdriver on the either side to unscrew it (this kept it from just spinning without loosening). If it is a push pin (you will know by looking because either a screwdriver will fit in the head or not) then you will need to get a thin steel rod about the width of a paperclip, a hammer, and a block that you can support the watch on. Push pins are pressure set and you just have to tap them out with a hammer by hitting the pin pusher/ steel rod into the pin hole to knock it out. Knock out the pins to the links you want to remove and then use a pin to resecure your watch band together.

The minute hand spins freely. how do i fix this?

Your hands need to be reset. It is possible that you have dropped your watch or have knocked it on something to make them come loose. You need to take it into a jeweler or a watch repair person to have it fixed because they will need to open the watch up to solve the problem.

The minute hand spinning freely...Jacob Jensen watch

It sound as if the hand has been released from its mounting.

Take it to your local watch repairer, who should be able to fix it back on for you.

I have an 1877 Rockford pocket watch. I can open the face and the back cover, but can't figure out how to get to the "works". There is a pushin flat lever just below the stem (when the back...

The "pin" you're describing sounds like the pin-set lever, which would be used to set the time. Pushing in the pin while turning the winding crown will move the hands forwards or backwards, depending on the direction in which you're turning the crown.
If you are trying to see the rear of the watch movement--i.e., where the balance wheel is ticking--and you can't see anything after removing or opening the back cover, you probably have a watch case with two back covers. This is not uncommon--the first cover might have engraving or a photo inside it; the second cover would serve as a dust shield. While the rear cover may screw off or be hinged, the inner cover is almost always hinged. Look for a tiny divot or imperfection in the dust cover where it does not seem to cleanly meet the rest of the case. Insert a case opening knife (or just a dull pocket knife blade) into that opening and *gently* twist. Do not get too aggressive here or you could deeply scratch the watch case and/or skitter across the face of the watch movement, significantly reducing the value of your pocket watch.
The dust cover should pop open with only a small amount of pressure. Swing it back, and admire the view of your pocket watch movement.
If none of this matches what you're seeing on your watch, follow up with any identifying language about the type of watch case that you have. Typically, the manufacturer will stamp some info inside the outer-most back cover of the watch. Note that the case maker is probably not Rockford; movements and cases were often sold separately and mated together at a jewelry store. That way, people could put a good movement in a cheap case, or a cheap movement in an expensive gold case.

How do I release the battery clip on a Timex Expedition watch to change the battery.

I just had this problem, and my 8 year old and I had to fiddle a bit to figure it out.

Just to confirm, you have removed the back cover and taken the watch guts out of the face and strap assembly and are looking at the battery which has a cover over it and maybe a sticker on the cover that says "unlatch to remove battery", with two >'s, one pointing to to each side?

On each side there are two small metal tabs, which surround a small moulded-in plastic piece with an opening in the middle.

The release is in that opening in the plastic piece. You need to fish around in that opening a little to catch the release and push it outward toward the edge of the watch (away from the battery). You need something very small to do this with, like a straight pin. If successful, the cover pops up on one side and then you do the same on the other side.

Good luck.

Polar F6 HRM keeps losing signal

I would go back to the dealer and have him exchange the watch.

There is not much inside of these watches that is servicable.

If it is not the watch that is defective, maybe there is bad reception for the the conditions where you are using the watch???
