SOURCE: I have a replica Rolex Oyster perpetual cosmogram

There are 2 scenario's here the first being the most likely:

If your dead set on not taking it to a jewelery store then. You can attempt to remove the back off yourself, you must however be very careful not to damage yourself or the watch in the process. The backs are normaly pressed on in these replica watches and the battery is located in the back of the case. You need to get somthing flat to lever the back off like a bread knife somthing sharper may work better to get in the groove but it also increases the danger factor. Once you pry the back off you should'nt have any problems removing the battery, just be careful with the battery holder they are delicate. When you replace the battery just press the back back on.

The other scenario is that it is a clone of the perpetual movement these clones aparently exist, although I have never seen one. If it's a clone of the real movement then if you shake the watch it moves a pendulum inside and winds the unit up, these watches don't need winding hence the word perpetual. Hope this is the solution you were after.

SOURCE: how to remove back for battery replacement - 19

This is a little tricky, I think this has a screw on back. It takes a two or better a three prong tool to remove back. A new seal shoud be on hand to replace this. Watch should have a consumption test and a min run voltage test, if either of these fail a new circuit board or movement should be installed. Take it to a good watchmaker and they will clean the outside before opening and do a water resistance test after assembly.

How to set day/date on an 1968 DX automatic Seiko watch


Seiko watches from this period should have a setting stem that pull out half-way and fully. Pulling the stem out fully permits you to set the time. Pulling the stem out half-way should let you set the date by moving the crown forward/clockwise and set the day of the week by moving the crown backward/counterclockwise.

However, for this to work correctly, the watch must have the correct set stem. I have worked with a number of watches, including Seikos, where a generic stem was substituted after someone accidentally pulled out the crown and stem (Seiko replacement parts can be tough to find in the U.S., especially for discontinued models). If an incorrect stem has been installed, the day/date setting procedure I've just described may no longer work correctly. At that point, setting the date involves advancing the hands to get to the right date; day of the week may not be able to be set at all.

Good luck!

I have a diesel watch model dz-2136 I need to know how to remove stem


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
I dont know why you want to remove the stem but here you go.
To remove the stem you must first loosen the set lever screw, then you can pull the stem out.
You only need to turn the set lever screw a couple turns to release the stem. Some movements use a button instead and in that case you would simply push the button down lightly with a pointed tool and while holding the button down pull the stem out.
For watches with one-piece cases where the movement comes out the dial side and the case has no removable back, you will not be able to get at the set lever screw. For this type of watch you must grasp the crown firmly and pull it out, or use plastic or soft brass tweezers to get behind the crown and pop it off. These watches have two-piece stems that have male and female ends that snap together. Then remove the bezel and let the movement come out into your hands. Then remove the hands and the dial and put the movement face down into a movement holder. Now you can remove the stem as described above

I have 4 seiko watches that no longer work. Most unreliable watch


mcdevito75 here, hello Diane, I'm afraid your jeweler is correct, and so are you. It is adviseable to pull the stem out to save the battery BUT, only if your not going to wear your watch for a long time, not just over night, here"s the problem!! the quartz mechanism and most of the works are plastic, and plastic while fairly flexable when new, gets hard over time, your pulling the stem to stop the watch everyday or even once a week most likely broke the switch in the mechanism that starts the watch, if so your only option is to replace the movement if you can get one. Pull the stem to stop your watch only if your not going to wear your watch for say 2 weeks toa month.

Need to remove winder on mens seiko titanium so i can remove the


Ensure crown is in neutral position i.e. pressed home (not in set hands posn.) Remove back and adjacent to the winding stem on the movement there should be a small button (may be indicated with an arrow) depress this gently whilst withdrawing the crown and stem from the watch. Ensure you don't engage to set hands position in the process. You might also find a couple of screws securing the movement into the case. P.S. Usually don't need to remove from case to replace battery.

Seiko Chronograph 7T32 minute hand inactive after battery replace


you often need to do a full reset on 7T32s (& other seikos) after a battery change. there is a small reset contact in the rear of the movement which needs to be shorted to the top of the battery (the movement is engraved with wording to this effect, something like "AC reset", I can't remember exactly). you might also try pulling out the crown all the way (2 clicks) then holding both upper pushers in for a few seconds. it's unlikely to be a buggered motor unless it's one of the subdials that's failed.

How do i remove crown?


Hi, on the back of the movement there should either be a screw or a dimple in line or next to the line of the stem. If a dimple, press in with a pin or similar sturdy tool and gently withdraw the stem. If a screw, only one turn should be enough to release the stem
