    I would like to ask if folks here can give some advice on servicing a Seiko Prosper LX. The original owner purchased the watch from an AD in US in February this year and I bought it from him in the summer. The watch was in mint condition and it came with original box and paper. I enjoy every...

    Hello, and thank you for the add! Newbie here with watch building in general. It's my first time putting together a watch with 2824 clone, and am having issues with stem reinsertion.

    Hi all, I have a Seiko V736-7A10, which appears to have no stem seal. Can anyone tell me where the seal should be? Does it sit in the crown or in the stem tube? A drawing would be big help! Best to all, Gerry

    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, I am wondering whether someone here may have the knowledge how to, or a link to a resource that can show me if there is some trick to re-insert the stem into a Miyota movement. I got an older quartz watch that runs on a very common Diamond shape Miyota movement which has text on it...

    Hi folks, I've received a new SKX. I've found that the time changing mechanism for the watch doesn't always engage the first time. Is there a DIY fix for this or should I send the watch to Seiko for a repair? Thanks very much guys. Clément

    Our design has a "vertical" face, taller than wide. "Portrait" mode? ))) We are looking for a quality quartz movement, 3-hand, with its stem at the 6:00 position. So far, we see only the Miyota 5Y30 - 5.5 x 6.75' ' '. Can any of the seasoned folks here suggest another option? Regards, Jay

    I hope this is the proper forum for my post. If not, I apologize. Back in the day--when I was not as educated nor discerning when purchasing vintage watches--I bought what I believe is a 6139-6002 Seiko Pogue (I do realize the 6005 is considered the actual Pogue). One of my issues regards what...

    Hi, recently I purchased a broken Alpinist 4S15-6000, I got it working again but the stem is broken and I'm having no luck trying to source a replacement. It is one of those with spring, for the screw down crown, so the part should be the complete stem plus crown. The part number seems to be...

    Hello all. Thanks for looking in. I bought a homage watch from WUS F29 last Aug, and I have run into a problem. I tried to wind it this morning, and the stem appears to have an issue now. It no longer winds, set the time and refuses to go back in. It is stuck in the open position. I found on...

    Good Day WUS'ers! I have an Orange Monster that has been running wonderfully without a bit of an issue for the past year, but in the last month I have noticed that the stem is extremely difficult to pull out to set the watch. I can unscrew the crown with no issues, wind the watch with no...

    I am looking for a stem/crown for a Miyota quartz movement (see attached). Why does Miyota seldom write the movement's part number on the movement? Can anyone help? It goes inside a cheap Nelsonic LAX 766 watch.

    It's partly help with the watch and help with the wife;-) I just spent $300 today getting a grade 227 watch repaired at a local shop, which had a number of highly positive high end watch reviews, but a few things concern me. I was wiping the inside of the case cover, wiping off fingerprints...

    Hello I have a quartz swiss made 5 jewel movement watch and it has a screw down crown. I tried googling and watching youtube videos but still confused about how to remove the crown from my watch? I'm guessing I need a pointy needle to push in one of these holes or do I need to pry up that gold...
