    Anyone fancy a challenge?

    I have a watch that I foolishly took apart to get a piece of fluff off the underside of the crystal. I managed to get the crown out but then couldnít get it back in!!
    During this process the seconds hand fell off....
    As you can see from the photo all the bits are there

    Can anyone help me out and put the thing back together as I love the watch.Itís not expensive but looks great.

    Itíll be a no risk job, if it doesnít work then no problem.

    Iíll pay for your time of you fancy it

    Let me know
    Andy

    What movement?
    Possibly needs dial off to realign the keyless works.
    Is that a movement holding tab as well?

    It'll most likely be the keyless works beggared up.

    I should say that the crown does go back in but doesnít engage all the way. So the hands move when the crown is turned, there is no way to push the crown all the way in to stop the hands turning. If that makes sense.....!

    Have you tried pushing on the stem release when refitting the crown?

    Looks like youíve bent the seconds hand up a bit too
