    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...

    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...

    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?

    The other day, I noticed a sound when screwing down the crown on my cw. It sounds more like a cracking noise with some clicking that wasn’t there before. Before this, it was silent to screw in. Yesterday I brought it to a private watch repair guy that said it was just the ”spring” or “thread“...

    Hi all, I just noticed that my speedy's crown quite suddenly started recoiling when winding it. It's not fully wound, so it's not that. Can someone please explain to me, in layman's terms, why this is happening and if it's natural/OK? Is this something that goes away? Please help a new speedy...

    I have a 2017 Speedmaster Professional Hesalite that I bought second hand this year. It wasn't worn much before me but I've used it nearly daily for 5 months now. Recently the crown has become a little harder to turn and has a noticeable "squeaky" feel as I turn it. Could it already be time for...

    Update: @Archer kindly confirmed the crown PN as 069ST43059 A good friend purchased this watch and had it sent to me first to have a look over, I think it's a great find aside from the fact that the winding crown has been replaced with a bezel-adjustment crown from a Flightmaster. The watch is...

    Hello! I am looking to see if anyone here has made a watch case with their own CAD files. For the past couple months, I have been teaching myself CAD software, and attempting to create my first watch case. By viewing other technical drawings online, I am very close to being complete. The last...

    Hi, I have a watch Vulcain First Lady (ref.no. 610164N4S.BAS407) with movement Soprod A10-2 11 1/2 (Calibre Vulcain V-61). I need a winding stem with crown. I called the Vulcain factory, but they don't do it at all. Vulcain's service is disappointing. I will be grateful for any help.
