  1. Watchmaking, How To's and Technical Resources
    This is the only quartz watch I wear much; I really like it for its solidity, and its robust good looks. However, the battery is dying (the second hand is doing the two-step shuffle). I could take it to a jeweller or watch-repairer, but I think I'd like to do it myself. This will require...

    Hello - I am a new member on here. I have a 10-year old Victorinox XLT, (new) black rubber band, black bezel, date at 3 o'clock (not four o'clock). I like to change my own watch straps and batteries, feeling that prices charged in a jewellery shop for such tasks is too high. In addition, I don't...

    Hello all! I have a caliber 0850 eco-drive that stopped holding a charge a few weeks ago. I noticed that the run time was declining and that I was having to actually make an effort to charge the watch whereas before the process was completely transparent. Anyway, I ordered a replacement cell...

    1) Are bezel screws necessary? Do they affect the watch at all besides the fact that they secure the bezel in place (for example, does taking off the screws affect it's waterproofing or its resistance to drops)? In other words, how does taking off the bezel screws affect the watch? (To clarify...

    I recently purchased a new GX-56KG from eBay and noticed that the watch never wake up from "power saving" sleep mode during the whole day, even when the watch is sitting next to a window, next to another tough solar G Shock that wakes up every morning. I have to wake it up by tilting the watch...

    Back in 1981, I was given an Omega "Constellation Quartz" model 191.032 with a 1330 Crystal Movement by my employer. The watch performed fine but by the time the second battery died around 1990, I had another Omega [Constellation Automatic Calibre 564] and did not renew the battery. I did have...

    I've replaced the battery twice in this Ironman Triathalon and within 3 weeks it's dead. o| I'm going to replace one more time and then call it quits. When I opened the watch the first time, there was a circular metal thing that was in the back plate that cracked and fell off. I salvaged the...

    Went to a jewellry to change my GW5600 battery and they couldn´t make it work, so they only charge me the price of the battery ( 1 € ). Read somewhere that after replacing a battery on any GSHOCK it has to be reset, so I opened mine and found the "AC" sign but no button near so I can restart it...

    Hi all: My wife's Seiko quartz needs a new battery, and I was wondering if you can tell if this is a snap back or screw back? It has lugs like a screw back, but they almost look ornamental rather than functional. I don't see a tiny space anwhere though on the back where I can stick in my case...
