Question about Fossil Arkitekt Watch for Men

1 Answer

I have a F ossil Arkitekt (fs-2990) that is a several years old. I removed the back and the battery to change out the battery and noticed that one of the numeral bars on the face has dislodged itself. in trying to remove the face from the watch case I cannot get past the knob that adjusts the hands of the watch. how do I remove the face to fix the loose numeral bar?

The knob that adjusts the time is called the crown, and it will have a stem attached to it. You will need to remove crown and stem together.
If it's a screw-down crown, unscrew it.
Examine the watch mechanism very carefully while pulling out the crown (as if you were adjusting the time) and pushing it back, What you are looking for is basically anything that moves. If you do see parts of the mechanism move, look very carefully around that area for an arrow mark impressed in the metal pointing to a small dip in one of the metal parts.Often, this is on a tiny lever but not all manufacturers bother with the arrow.
Ensure that the crown is pushed back to it's normal position. Put a tiny amount of pressure on the dip (a needle is ideal for this), and carefully attempt to pull out crown and stem.You may need to apply slightly more pressure to get a result, but please take care not to press too hard or you may damage the mechanism.
Hopefully, that should sort it out. To refix the numeral bar, I'd recommend super glue - but you only need a tiny, tiny amount. Apply it with the tip of a needle and you shouldn't go far wrong.
Once you're looking at reassembly, you should be able to reinsert the crown and stem without depressing the dip but do it gently and don't force it - it may need a slight turn to relocate properly before it slides back in.

I hope this was easy to follow - get back in touch if you get stuck.

SOURCE: Condensation

On most watches, if you get condensation within the face, means that there is a small crack on the glass/plastic covering. Some watches you can take apart from the back and pull out the workings and replace this casing, on others, you have to take it to the jewelers to have it replaced. Depending on how much you paid for the watch, you are better off buying a whole new one.

You will have to remove the back off the watch (cant take off the face). You MIGHT be able to access the hand from there, but you may have to adjust some of the watch inner movement and that will be risky but you can try.

Just take the watch to your nearest jeweler. They can quickly replace it for you....probably cheaper than what you would pay for the battery yourself.

I don't have the original battery to my watch, and am looking for a replacement. The watch is a Fossil Arkitekt FS-3031


<P>Thank you for contacting FixYa.</P><P>Unfortunately, unless it is stamped on the back of the watch, or it is in your manual, there is no way of knowing the battery that goes in any watch without the old one, or very accurate sizing of the area it goes in.

I have a Fossil Arkitekt wristwatch (FS-2919). on of the hands on one of the three tiny dials has come loose and is floating around the face. I probably wouldn't care, but the main watch hands get caught...

Fs 4159 sudennly stopped working


The first thing to check is the battery.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving in doing it yours
