Tips & Warnings
  • Do not set the date or time between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. to avoid damage to your Geneva watch. The gears sit too close together during these times.
  • If your Geneva watch becomes wet, wipe it dry as soon as possible. Keep your watch away from saunas and hot tubs, as the extreme heat diminishes the watch's water resistance.

I pulled the entire crown and stem out of my Rolex President. What is involved in fixing it?


The repair for this problem may be quick and inexpensive--or somewhat more expensive. Either way, it's considered a minor repair.
The crown and stem assembly in held in a Rolex movement by a small pressure screw. When this screw is loosened, the stem can be cleanly pulled out of the movement without damaging any parts. The movement can then be removed from its case. If the screw is too loose, it is sometimes possible to pull the crown and stem out with ordinary effort. The simple fix for this would be to have a watchmaker take the back off your Rolex (requires a special wrench) and slide the stem back into the watch while loosening and re-tightening the screw. If that's it, the repair takes about 5 minutes, most of which is spent removing and replacing the watch back.
Things can get more complicated. The set stem interacts with a thin sheet metal spring / detent that helps the stem "snap" to its various set and wind positions. Sometimes, when a stem gets pulled out, the force of that can snap the delicate little finger in this watch part. Replacing this watch part will require that the movement be removed from the case and the hands and dial be removed for access to the part. Once you get to it, the part itself can easily be replaced--it's designed to be replaced without disassembling the whole watch movement--but there's considerably more effort involved than just sliding the stem back in and tightening down the screw.

Gossip watch, has only the stem ( no other stem or buttons) watch has small dials one with day of week, one with date, I don't how to change thEM. Thank you


If you have only the stem to set your watch, then you have very few options.

I would expect your watch crown (stem) to have three positions;-

1) The home (normal position); this is used to wind the watch.

3) Fully out; this one is usually for setting the time; clockwise to advance and anticlockwise for retarding the the hands.

2) Between 1) and 3); this setting should be for setting the day of the week and the date. You will have to experiment to find which way tor turn for date and day.

mcdevito75 here, Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for adjustment, don"t force the stem into any position, chances are it just needs an adjustment a watch maker can make.

How do I remove the stem and crown from a Skagen watch? There seems to be no set screw at the base of the stem.


First, this isn't something you should do if you are not a trained watchmaker. Many people cause more damage by trying to repair their own watch just to save a couple dollars. But the movement (insides) of a watch are very fragile and some parts can be damaged by touching them with too much force.

If you are a watchmaker you need to remember to look for the detent. That is what you need to remove the stem.

How do I adjust the time and date on my Timex Expedition watch


Hi, the upper of the two watch stems is turned counter clockwise (looking at the stem) until the desired function (i.e., format, date, time, chrono, timer) appears. To set that function, pull the upper stem out and turn CW to advance & CCW to go back. Once hours & minutes are set, the stem can be pushed in upon a mark to start at zero seconds. For the day of the week, turn the upper stem CCW until date appears. Pull out the stem, to detents or positions, and this will allow the day to be adjusted.

Take care

Crown will not push back in completely, it stays out in the first pull position


Sounds like the setting lever has disengaged from the stem detent. If you can remove the back off the case you may be able to reengage it. Look for either a small silver coloured pin or screw adjacent to the winding stem. If it's a pin use a sharpened match stick or similar and depress while pressing crown back in. If it's a screw - back the screw off about 1 1/2 to 2 turns, press crown back in and tighten screw again. Check operation of winder in all positions before replacing case back.

When I pull out the stem 1 notch I can only change the 1 to 31 date setting. When I pull out the stem to second notch this changes the hour and minute hands. I cannot figure out how to change the 1 to 24...


Try turning the stem the opposite direction. The last watch I had with that feature required a clockwise turn to advance the time or date and a counter clockwise turn to change the day of the week.

Using the stop watch feature


Dennis,
"Chronograph" is watch terminology for 'stop-watch'.
There are 3 small dials on the watch.  The main dial has a minute hand and an hour hand.  The big second hand on the main dial is not for the main time of the watch.  It is for measuring seconds for the stopwatch.
The 2 small dials at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock will give you minutes and 1/10 of a seconds.  
There are 2 buttons on the side of the watch. Top Button:  Start/Stop Bottom Button: Reset
To set the chronograph to its default position, you would pull out the stem to the first position and push the buttons.  Also, pull the stem out further to the 2nd position and push the buttons.

Need to get winder out from watch so as to remove watch face


Open the back of your watch. pull the stem ( winder) out and look for a small metal piece inside that moves as you do this. There should be a little dimple on the moving piece. The piece may be on then side next to the stem, or on the movement under the movement backing plate. Tale a tweezer or something like it and push in the dimple. DO NOT PUSH HARD!!! You want to try to pull the stem out while pushing down on the dimple( it's called the detent) as lightly as you can. If you push too hard you will mess up the whole stem assemly If you still have a problem please let me know..Good Luck!!
