How do I fix the pin on a lady's Geneva watch that no longer sets the time or locks down tight?

Why won't the pin set the time after I pulled it to replace the battery for my wife

The "pin" is the stem and they can be delicate. The fix is to replace it.

I purchased a Cote d' Azur watch & necklace set on a cruise ship recently, and can't seem to set the other three functions on the watch. There is only one pin but there are three addtional...


One of the dials should be seconds so you won't be setting that, the other two should be day and date, when you pull the stem and crown all the way out you can set the time there is a halfway setting ( pull the stem halfway out) if you turn one way it's the day of the week the other way is the date. Hope this helps! Also what appears to be a second hand on the dial a lot of times is actually a stopwatch.

My wrist watch has been in a drawer for over a year. I want to wear it now. the time shows 6;13 and the date shows 8: 16. It is running correctly. How do I set it foe the correct time and date?


First you need to unscrew the crown (setting knob) of the watch. Turn dial from up to down (downwards), you will feel the knob loosen and then it will pop out gently.
Pull out the pin very gently and turn downwards to set the date. If you have a Day and Date watch, turn upwards to set the day of the week.
To set the time, pull the pin out futher and turn to set the appropriate time.
Finally push pin in and simultaneously turn upwards to screw back the pin.
Please make sure you push turn the pin tightly because most cases of Water Damaged watches are caused due to the pin being screwed up not tight enough.

I bought a Park Lane Ladies watch on ebay it says quartz and was described in working condition i set the time pushed the pin in and nothing how do I get this to work


mcdevito75 here, If when you recieved the watch from ebay you had to push the crown in to get it going, we can assume a battery wa sin the watch, thus pushing in the stem (pin) should activate or start the watch. The battery could have gotton loose during shipping, Try pulling out the stem turning the hands as though to set the time, push the stem back in and see if the watch starts, if not, visit a small watch repair shop in your area for possibly a new battery.

I have a etica watch au9101 I don't know how to set the month and if it takes a battery when i got the only thing I got was a 5 year warranty card with ( no owner manual) Thank you


As I can see from the picture here:http://www.etica.ch/banner/AU9101.jpg your watch do not need a battery as it is automatic/selfwinding mechanical watch. There are two push buttons on the side. One of them is for month setting and another one for day setting. Use small pin or ball point pen to push them. Try both and you will see which one is for the month and which for the day setting. Push repeatedly until the desired month and day is set. Date in small window can be set by winding crown. Pull out crown half way out and set the date, then pull out crown further out to the time setting position and set the correct time. Push the crown back in and wind it back and forth at least 15 times to start the watch going. Before you start any of adjustments, set the time to 5.30 (am or pm - doesn't matter). It will prevent accidental damage of day/date/month mechanism. Rate me, plz.

The pin used to set the time pulled out completely


The pin you called it is the stem and crown try this technic before you bring or send it to a service center.Put it back where you taken it out ,while puting it in wind the crown and push it gently inside so it locked it up by pushing it gently inside.Check it out if not pulled out again the stem and crown if not and still coming out there something broken inside
