  1. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Sorry for not posting pictures. The showroom where I saw this watch didn’t allow cellphone use. Some minutes ago I was browsing the vintage watch selection at Monte de Piedad, a Mexican state owned pawn chain that’s actually quite reputable, unlike the rest of our government. Anyway, one watch...

    Does anyone have a way to find a stem that is entirely missing? I measured the distance but have had trouble finding the right stem and crown. Its a Hoga Oceanmaster. I did find a photo of the crown. Internally the movement has a small 55 stamped opposite the balance. I will include some pics...

    Hi guys, Probably a silly question, but is there any reason why some watches have the crown located lower down on the watch? For example: this Zelos Compared to this: Is it any reason to do with the movement they use or is it just purely aesthetic? Cheers.
  4. Seiko
    My main question: I'm wondering if someone has a link to or can point me in the direction of where to find a good diagram of the Seiko Monster's crown gasket assembly? I recently bought my first Monster (it's new, so it's their latest version of it). I really like the watch a lot. I love the...

    ....to new lengths. So at first I thought this crown was just too fiddly but after a few more operations it turns out it is not so bad. It is an unusual set up for sure. This one is better worn on the right wrist for obvious reasons Lume is so so Made this video to demonstrate...

    Hi all, When the crown of my gwg-1000 is unscrewed and pulled out, it is like the top of the crown tilts slightly to the side, just enough to be noticeable upon inspection. Further, when I push down on the other side of the crown (the one tilting up) it can be moved down slightly. It seems to...

    Hey Everyone, First post on watchuseek. Excited for it. I have a Seiko SPB143 and the crown/stem need replacement. The movement is working fine. I went to two watch repair stores and neither could source the parts. Anyone know where I can order it? If I can even order it??

  9. Orient
    Hi everyone, I recently purchased this Ray 2 and it’s a lovely watch but I have an issue with the amount the crown screws down. I have seen other people with the issue online but do you think my watch has a different issue or maybe the same one to a larger extent? Also, when hand winding the...

    Hi everyone, I am have recently gotten into watches with a bit more of an interest than previously and I have purchased a blue Ray 2. It looks and wears amazing with a blue and white line NATO but I have a question. When screwing the crown down from normal position it it only takes two turns...
  11. Glycine
    Hello, I have a Glycine Airfighter Chronograph.. and it's got one minor problem that's puzzling: The crowns (in my opinion) are low quality. They're metal, covered with rubber. The crown which locks down the 24 hour rotating bezel has fallen off. The crown used for winding has a loose...
  12. Sinn
    Hello guys, Maybe some one can give me some advise, I own a Sinn 856 UTC, and recently I was changin the time and the crown broke off from the stem. I can find the replacement stem for this movement, but no idea how to re-install it in the crown, as it seems the old one broke off without...

    Hi all, Just got an SRPF77 Seiko "Dark Manta" Turtle. I love everything about it so far. I did however notice that the crown has a small amount of wobble, and when wobbled the crown makes a sort of sticky noise. It is almost as if the gasket is "sticking" and "unsticking" from the walls when...
  14. Rolex & Tudor
    My Pelagos is the second higher end watch that Iv owned. Seamaster SMPC being the other. My question is in regards to the “finger tight” rule of thumb. Every single watch Iv owned before followed the finger tight rule very easily but somehow the Pelagos has me questioning it. Apparently it does...

    I'm letting go of my ProPilot due to lack of wrist time. Overall it runs well and is in pretty good condition. There are some light scratches on both sides of the case, buckle and inside lugs (strap changes). I tried to show them in the pics. I'm the second owner of this piece. Details: Width...

    This is about the Rolex crown logo etched or drilled at the 6 o'clock and finding it by lighting up the crystal at the 12 o'clock. I may have learned about how to do this on this forum...not sure. But when you shine light on the edge of the crystal at the 12 o'clock the light travels through the...

    Greetings, I have an early 2000s Fossil watch that had the stem removed on accident (long story) I tried to place the stem back by removing the case back and pressing the release. It is secured back in the movement. I can move the hands, adjust the date but the watch will not run. Battery is...

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to inform everybody on how Timex sizes their watches. Timex is one of the very few companies that lists their watch case sizes with the crown included! So for instance their MK1 field watches are listed as 40mm when in reality they are 38mm with a 2mm crown! Just an...

    Hi all, I changed the crown on my vostok amphibia. The process of removing the back was smooth, the problems started back when I put everything back together... The issue is the same is I put the old crown or the new crown. I had hard time putting back the crown in place. I could push it...

    I've got a CItizen Nighthawk with a stuck crown. It's screw-down. I've turned it counterclockwise with as much force as I'm able to apply with my fingertips and it won't budge. Any suggestions before I try plyers?
