5 minutes in an ultrasonic cleaner or 30 seconds under a steam jet may be all it needs. The dullness is usually caused by body oils attracting dust and dirt. If the stone is actually scuffed it can be polished. Most jewelry stores will clean your rings for free (to get you in the store and tempt you with new baubles) and can buff it with jeweler's rouge and a buffing wheel if needed. DIY cleaners and steamers are available and handy to have if you have regular use for one. My wife has both but prefers the steam jet.

Screen is not bright like in advertising photos and the there is a line on the screen shaped a bit like an S . Screen grey one side,black the other.

The watch is brand-new, and you have every reason to expect that it would appear and function correctly. Return the item and ask for refund or replacement.

Greetings Folks. New watch, looses time by about 5 minutes a day. No mention of an adjustment for time drift and probably there is not one. So, new battery? This was new, out of the box, off the shelf at a...


I appreciate your line of thought concerning the problem of your watch.

like you rightly mentioned before, it could be a battery prob;em which is usually the commonest for this error. so please change the batteries first then if the problem persist a simple service of the watch should solve the entire problem.

all the best

Hi davejordan

Sugggest you to take your watch to your local jewellary shop.
If company retail outlet is nearby then you can take it to them also.
Actually the crystal needs to be changed.

Cannot open the battery compartment on my suunto x6 without breaking it....any ideas?

  • Turn the Suunto over to view the backside. Insert the quarter in the coin slot located on the battery compartment cover. Turn the coin counterclockwise to the "Open" position marked on the back of the case.
  • Remove the battery compartment cover. Remove the old battery from the battery compartment. Make sure the o-ring and all surfaces are clean, dry and not damaged. Do not stretch the o-ring!
  • Place the new battery into the battery compartment (negative side down, positive side up). Make sure the o-ring is in its place, as to keep the Suunto waterproof. Place the battery compartment cover back onto the backside of the watch.
  • Insert the quarter back into the coin slot and turn the coin clockwise to the "Close" position marked on the back of the case.

  • If this doesnt work take to a jeweler who has tools.

    Bought a gemstone globe-it's large (25" or so) diameter. Top layer of glass is broken in several areas. Can it be repaired?

    Thanks for contacting Fixya.
    You will have to figure out the name of the company who made the globe. There are several companies out there who make these. Then you can do a search on the internet to see if you can find the customer support for that company.
    Best I can do for you!! Best regards.

    Crystals framing my Haurex watch face are falling out.

    Hi, im a jeweller myself. The problem with jewellers and crystals is simple. Its a lot of work to replace something that doesnt cost a lot to buy (the crystals, not the watch). Swarovski are a commonly known producer of crystals, but you will probably find that simulation gemstones such as Cubic Zirconia are commonly used in newer watches.

    I specialise in gemstone setting, and can also work with simulation stones and crystals, but it takes much longer to reset stones into a stainless steel watch case than into gold or platinum so the labour costs are much higher.

    It depends how much the watch is worth as to how much you spend on repairs.

    Hope this helps

    This is more of a manufacturing than a support problem. However, if you would like to have the watch resurfaced or restored a qualified jeweler should be able to acid wash and plate it for you. It depends on the value of the watch (monetary or sentimental) and how much you're willing to spend. I wouldn't expect plating to run much more than $150 but you'll want to make sure you're clear on the end result (shiny, brushed finish, tinted, etc.).
