SOURCE: can't get my croton watch to work.

There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:

  1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead battery in them).
  2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
  3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have lost the back of a gold ladies Geneve watch

Best bet here is to go to a dealer that carries that brand and seeing if they can order you a new caseback.
Or, you can look for the same model online or EBAY that is broken or in disrepair, then just scrap it for the caseback. (It is not always possible to find one, but i recommend trying as this is the least expensive way to obtain small parts).

SOURCE: Need a new watch movement

I am not sure which Vincente model you have but I can tell you that the movements for those are Swiss made. That may not seem like much but there's not a lot of info on them.
Chances are it's an ETA movement and if not there's an ETA movement that should fit it. ETA is one of the top Swiss movement makers around. You will find their movements in more watch over $1500 then I care to mention. You should be able to get a movement for around $150 plus installation. You will need to go to a watch repair shop so find a good one.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Need instructions on how to

Some of these can be quite a bugger to set, there are so many variates of Pulsar watches, and I'm not able to locate exact instructions for that model. However if you call Pulsar with that model number they will gladly provide a free manual for you, one you can probably even download and view, or they can email it to you directly. Please call Pulsar at 1-201-529-5730 and request the instructions.

Thanks
Tim

How to submit questions about watches


To submit correct question about any watch here on FixYa you have to give as much details of particular watch as possible. There are hundreds of people asking for help, but it makes no sense if the question, for example, is: How can I adjust my Citizen stainless steel watch? Citizen, as any other watch manufacturer produces thousands of watch models and every year few hundreds of new models are added. This makes impossible to recognize any watch by the brand name given only.
So, to make sure that you will receive proper help with your watch, please always submit:
1. Brand name;
2. Model name;
3.Type of display ( Analog or digital or both);
4.Type of movement (Mechanical, quartz, kinetic, solar e.t.c.);
5.Number of the watch (Usually written on watch's case back);
6.All the writings you can find on watch's case back.
If you are not sure what type of movement your watch has, here is a tip how to find it out: Observe watch's seconds hand. If it is moving in jumping action second after second - your watch has a quartz movement which is battery driven. If the seconds hand is moving in sweeping action - most likely your watch has mechanical movement which is driven by spring.
The more information you will submit, the better.

What does this Y148-8009A1 and 491300 mean on the back of a pulsar P watch


Y148 is the quartz movement model, 8009 is the case number.
The 491300 is the serial number, which means that the watch was produced in January of either 1994, 2004, or 2014. I have no idea what the A1 in a box is for. I hope this helps.

Any idea what a Bulova watch, 14K white gold, number on back case 962158. Any idea what it is worth?


I'd need more info. First, is it a "real" Accutron, made from '60 to '77, or is it one of the things Bulova kept calling Accutrons after they stopped making the tuning fork movement watches? The quartz so-called Accutrons are just a nice old watch, not worth anything special. The self-wind "Accutrons", which Bulova is making now, are just a nice, mid-range aurtomatic watch. On the back of Bulova watches is a date code, usually right under the serial number (SNs themselves really mean nothing where Accutrons are concerned). The code is a letter and a number. If it begins with the letter M, or if it begins with the letter N and is followed with a 0, 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. or 6, it is a "real" Accutron, and is collectible. Some with N7 (1977) are also, but it depends on the actual watch. Bulova did make some quartz so-called Accutrons in '77. If it's a '60 thru '76, and SOME '77s, it has value beyond the scrap gold price. SOME Accutrons are even worth thousands of dollars. White gold Accutrons, compared o yellow gold or stainless, are rarer. Next, WHICH Accutron is it? is it a 214, a 218, a 219, a 220, a 224, or a 230? If it's a man's watch, it is very unlikely to be a 220 or 230 series, If it does not have a winding stem on the side, it is a 214. 214s are the most valuable. If it has a setting stem at 3 o'clock or 4 o'clock, it is either a 218 or 219 (I'd have to open the back and look at the movement to say which ine). If it says "Accuquartz" on the face, it's a 224 (NOT a quartz - the 224 Accuquartz is a hybrid of tuning fork and quartz crystal). Once we know the movement series, we need the case type. Certain cases are much more valuable than others. Then there are the Spaceview, the Astronaut, and the Deep Sea, 3 specific models they made, which are more valuable than most (but not all) of the other cases. The best I can say right now is that, being white gold, there's a good chance it's one of the more desireable specific models. If it's a 214, ESPECIALLY if it's a 1960 (M0), it's worth quite a bit more than just the gold content. To be more specific, I'd have to see a picture of the watch, which I don't think can be posted here. Try looking up "Accutron" on Ebay and see if you can find one that, if yours has a stem, has it in the same place as yours, with the exact same case - same shape, and exact same lugs (the things on either end where the band or strap is attached). Read the description. The description will probably say the movement (214, 218, etc - in fact, the movement may even be in the listing title) and if it is niot just a plain round case, probbly will say the case type (Alpha, Asymmetric, Butterfly, etc.). If it's an Astronaut, a Spaceview, or a Deep Sea, it will certainly say that. Also, look at the Accutron section of the Bulova entry in Wikipedia. (Yeah, I wrote it, but it has info that just might help you pin down exactly what you have) When you find out more about which Accutron it is, post another question under Axcutron watches here. I'll check every couple of days for the next week or so, and if I see your post, I'll narrow down the value some more.

I have a pulsar watch, gold plated model number Y112-5299 570261. I need to find out what battery I need for this watch, the one that was in has been lost.


The movement for this watch is obsolete so I cannot find a spec sheet for it. From memory I think it is a 371 (SR920). If you can give me the exact measurements of the area the battery slots into (DEPTH and DIAMETER) (in milimeters) then I can tell you exactly which battery.

I have an old ladies dress Chopard watch - oval shaped gold with diamonds on the band. I inherited the watch from an estate. I wore the watch from a month and then it just stopped. Should I take it to a...


You need to first know if it is a Quartz watch or an older Wind Up type. I am guessing, since you have been wearing it and do not mention winding it, that itt is probably a Quartz movement in the watch. However, to be clear, If it is older than about 1970 then it is definitely Not Quartz. Then might be what is called an Automatic movement, which is actually a Self Winding Movement mechanism. If newer than 70, could be either Quartz or WindUp. If it is Quartz then the problem is most probably that the watch needs a New Battery. This can be done at a local jewelry shop for around $8 to $15. If it is a Wind Up style then it would need a more complex repair. But sending it to Chopard is still the Last Resort as Chopard could charge you $400 to repair it, I am not kidding, haha. But take heart, most probably you have simply got a Dead Battery and your friendly local watchmaker or jewelry store can fix it for you fast and cheap. Good Luck, W.

How do I find my serial number on my bulova watch


Serial numbers are generally on the back of the watch.

You may be able to find two or three numbers on the watch.

A case number, a movement number and a serial number.Alternatively you might find a style number (which in your case is 26B44) and a serial number.

Differentiating omega model 2561.80 and a model 2531.80


Kris,
The only way to find out what model of Omega you actually own is to open it.  This should have been done by whoever you already brought it to.  Omega only prints their model #'s on the movement inside the watch.  If you open the watch, look on the movement, you'll know what model you own.
