: crown and stem just came out

06-11-2013, 12:27 PM
Hi, I have just pulled the crown out of my watch to adjust the time and the crown and attached stem came out of the watch. I assume a stem must be secured into the watch somehow but I have no idea how. I pushed it back in and it feels quite secure but would prefer to explore how to fix it properly.I would appreciate ideas please unless it is a job for a watchmaker. Thanks

Hi Guys,
I have just noticed that the end of the stem has a thread and have srewed it back into watch. If I had a brain I would be dangerous. sorry for wasting your time chaps.

the end with the threads is for the crown, that end does not go back into the watch...
