How do I crown a timer for Taiwan electric vintage watch and get the battery to work after replacing electric?

1. A battery can only take a certain number of charge cycles before it fails. 2. The watch needs to be disassembled and cleaned. 3. The watch requires a new battery, which can be obtained by visiting an electric watch repair shop.

Hi I have a vintage Dolce Gabbana Watch the serial number is 3719250151 wondered if you could tell me the year it was made

There are very few makers that give access to serial numbers Victoria. They are just a numerical sequence. I can do more with model numbers as far as searching goes. What you can do is contact Dolce Gabbana Customer Service direct. They actually like enquiries like that. No search data here https://www.google.com/search?q=vintage+dolce+gabbana+watch+serial+number+lookup

What battery size is needed for vintage watch, Mickey Mouse Talking Wrist Watch In Package Sealed , made by Sounds Fun

Tip & How-To about Watches Changing Watch Batteries Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10! Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

I am interested in learning watch repair, working primarily on ladies vintage watches. What do you suggest. Starting with a book, an online course, or DVD's that are available.

either method will teach you but hands on under the watchful eye of a watchmaker would be better

Came across a vintage minerva stop watch can you help price it.

ebay lists 7 search results between £30 - £190 I guess it depends on the exact age and model and providence of the particular watch. Only a valuation by someone who is familiar with this market would be able to tell you. (search on vintage Minerva stopwatch) 12.February.2015

My 14K GOLD BENRUS has a Serial # 435626. How old is this watch?

Go to this site and post the question. It's probably not worth very much - maybe less than $200 unless there's something special about it...
