I have no idea of the value.
You say that it's self-winding, but that you don't know how to wind it? Just wear it - the movement of the arm and wrist winds the watch. If the watch is fully wound down then it may take a while for the watch to have enough power to restart. Some automatics will allow you to wind the watch in the normal way with the crown.

I would not recommend that you regulate the watch yourself. The risk of damage is too great.I would be happy to regulate it for you. This is a service that I offer my customers free of charge.you pay only the exact shipping costs.

SOURCE: Invicta watch has loud self winding

Sorry for your Rolex....
In any case you will not be able to to repair watch yourself as it takes skilled man and special tools to do the job.
It is NOT common that the winding rotor is making a noticeable noise, unless you bought second hand watch.
1st cause can be that the rotor fixing screw is loosened and the rotor is touching caseback whilst in move. Then you are the lucky one as the only thing to do is to tighten it properly.
2nd cause can be that the ball bearing is too worn, bridge screwws are loose, rotor axis worn and so on and so on. In this case you may need some part replacement and much more complicated work must be done. As the outcome it will take more time to repair and you will pay more money.

until it begins to feel just slightly taunt,Do NOT over wind a wind-up wrist watch, if its a self winding you should just have to walk in it to wind it. here is a link to a pdf of your manual which has winding procedures, Good luck Jon click here

How do I fix loose hands on my rotary skeleton watch?


That is a job best handled by someone in watch repair. Take it in to almost any jeweler and talk to the repair person they have there to see what he would charge for taking it apart and fixing it.

I'm not sure about this arm movement.


if the watch as not been worn for a long time it's best to wind it by hand first to get it started, just make sure the winder is pushed all the way in and then just keep winding it clockwise till it start going..

I need to know how much my watch is worth


What kind of watch is it? Is there a model # ? What are it's features & what's it made of? Try a jeweler, watch dealer or possibly a pawn shop for an estimate of the value - a jeweler who sells higher end watches is probably your best bet.

Watch lens scratches... Solutions to repairing?


If you have a plastic crystal, you can use plastic polish (I like Novus #2, myself) to buff out small scratches. In a pinch, white toothpaste (not the gel kind) contains gentle grit and also will buff out some imperfections in a plastic watch crystal. Toothpaste is harsher than plastic polish, however, and may remove deeper scratches at the cost of creating some additional fine scratches.
If your watch crystal is made of mineral glass, scratches cannot be easily polished out. In that case, your best solution would be to take it to a jeweler or watch repair facility to have the crystal replaced. Depending on the style of the watch, replacing a crystal can be as little as $15--or run to well over $100 for some diver's watches. If you're not comfortable with the estimate, get another one elsewhere. Crystal replacement is a high profit margin job for many jewelers. Not everyone is equally greedy.

Helloi have an Elgin watch I am trying to sale I am not trying to get lowballed on the price..if you could help me out and tell me how much it is worth the info is b.w. Raymond Elgin 571 u-s-a V531181 8...


mcdevito75 here, Elgin, a fine, fine watch, If the name on the dial says Lady Elgin it could be worth more, but the fact it"s an Elgin counts alot also. Older Elgins are also worth more as they are collectables, Let"s say your Elgin is 20 years old and in fine . fine shape, no scratches, tarnishing and is keeping great time it"s worth could be $100.00 -- $150.00 Of course this depends on many factors as mentioned. If your Elgin is say only 5--10 years ols it"s value in my opinion is approx.$75.00 -- $100.00 Bset Bet, visit a few jewelers in your area, many will give a free apraisel on the value of your Elgin.

Rolex watch


Hi tia

If it is a geniune Rolex... dont even think about it!! Take it to a jewellers for repair. Even if it is not, and you wish the watch to remain water resistant, then the casings and seals should be cleaned and serviced, even sometimes replaced when put back together. It is worth it to maintain the integrity of the watch... and make it last:) Jewellers dont charge much for this service
