20 Most Recent Invicta (2540) Wrist Watch Questions & Answers

There can be hundereds of causes why your watch isn't working properly, so, I'll not name them.
One is clear- without help of skilled watchmaker your watch will NEVER work properly.
NOTE: It may sound very strange, but mechanical watches do NOT like to be left without job.
Next time you decide to leave mechanical watch aside for long time- do not forget to wind it up once in a 2-3 days even if you are not wearing it.
This will help to prolong watch movements life and keep timekeeping steady and accurate.

You may have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!

Could be that you have bent the crown shaft.....easily done, see if anyone will service it for you, sadly, many eatchsmiths won't touch INVICTA

Take it to a jewelry store, they have magnifying lenses to see where the parts go but here's a YouTube video showing the proper process for changing the battery,perhaps you will see the offending part you need to locate

It's not the size that counts, but type. Take your Invicta to a jeweler who will open it, identify the battery type, and perhaps replace it.

It could be a couple of things, the second hand is not seated properly and is rubbing. May need a cleaning, or fresh battery. Unless you have taken a watch apart I would bring it to a watch repair or send it directly to Invicta USA they will give you an estimate. Should not be expensive

Battery type, not size. Take your Invicta to a jeweler who will open it, determine the battery type, and perhaps install a replacement for a reasonable fee.

Take your Invicta to a jeweler to have battery replaced.

Invicta Watches | Answered on Jul 01, 2019

Might go to a shopping mail, and ask for the battery to be replaced at a watch or jewelry store for a small fee.

I searched for Invicta stores on the internet using https://www.google.com

You may wish to call them.

Take your Invicta watch to a jeweler to have battery type identified.

Invicta Watches | Answered on May 05, 2019

It appears you will be changing the battery yourself.
If so I would suggest to unscrew the case and read the ID on the battery. The Maxell reference guide will let you choose based on voltage, size, etc.
Be careful with an O-ring that keeps moisture out.
