SOURCE: 2003 deer pocket watch Al Agnew is it wind up or

Often with battery powered watches the word "Quartz" will be written on the dial. In the abscent of that you can look at the mechanism inside (typically by removing the case back).

Alternately (this may not be an absolute confirmation) with the winder in neutral position i.e. pressed all the way in, turn the crown (winding button) and if it spins freely it's probably quartz. Because unless it's broken most mechanical watches click as the watch is
wound up (except some automatics which cant be crown wound).

Plus if it's working and left unworn for a few days yet continues to run it's probably quartz.
Please rate this solution.

How to change battery -can't open case on Nouveau quartz men's watch


Take it to K-Mart jewelry dept. and ask them to take the back off to determine the battery you need. They'll do it and only charge you for the battery.

How do you wind the watch


There are no many watches these days that need 'winding. Most are either quartz timing and battery, or they are 'Automatic', which means self winding. There is a weight inside that spins on its axis and winds the watch.

If you COMMENT under my post with make and model, I will tell you.

Cant find battery


This is a wind up clock. No batteries. Wind clock wise only a couple of turns. This will need to be done once or twice a day. Do not over wind. It will break the spring.

I had my battery changed, but the hands are not working. Do I need to wind it?


did you change the battery yourself ? You might have to resett he watch to have it started up . You only need to wind automatic watches. So no you do not have to wind your watch. It could be a bad movement

I bought it new and then a few weeks later the battery seemed to stop. I did not wear it often. I heard some watches do not use battery and function with the movement of one's arm. Is this the case for...


If the watch is a self winding type, then it generally says "automatic" on the face. These will run for about 2-3 days if they are not worn, as the self winding action only works when the user is moving).

Battery driven watches should run for at least a year before needing a replacement, so if it has stopped already, it could be self winding or manually wound type. Some self winding watches can be manually wound so you could try this to see if it starts.

My watch is not moving . I want to know do I need to change the battery or it is self wind? ref. 384858.Thanks


Its easy to tell if its battery operated or self wind. Turn the crown (where you set the time) forward. Self wind watches will click as you turn the crown. If its battery operated then you will hear no clicks. Some watches have a screw down crown so if the crown wont turn forward then try turning back. Some watches have a capacitor that needs to be charged! Seiko Kinetics are charged by movement like an older automatic. Citizens are charged by light!

Good luck!

How do I open a medana pocket watch?


First -let's check out what type of watch you have. If you push the crown in and it turns freely back and forth with no resistance at all - this is battery driven watch.
If you do the same and feel and hear some clicking and resistance- this is mechanical (spring driven) watch.
Next - the case: Usually all pocket watches have snap-on casebacks. Take an eyeglass and examine the case. Even if you think there is no any grooves or gaps- try to pry it using watchmakers caseback opener (about $5 on ebay).
In case if there are no chance to open caseback - that means you have one of the cases assemblad watch glass fitted last and that means you have to take glass out first and then only to get to the movement.
As you will not be able to get the glass out without braking it, the only solution will be to visit your nearest watchmakers shop and ask for help.

Rate, please.

Opening woman's rolex


You need to go to a place that sells watch and jewelry supplies, because there is a certain tool for opening a Rolex. I am interested in knowing why you need to open it up though. If this is a Authentic Rolex ALL womans Rolex watches are automatics. Try unscrewing the crown (the part used to set the time ) counter clockwise and then clockwise turn the crown and listen to hear it winding, if it is infact an automatic, wind it 50 times. After winding, push crown in ( it is spring loaded) and screw in clockwise. It should run. If wearing every day you will not have to wind again, if wearing less frequently rewind as specified.
