I have a watch that has a Miyota 2415 movement. I replaced the battery and it started only after I pulled out the crown to set the time. About an hour later it stopped, I went through the same steps again (also checked the new battery, OK) This time it ran for about 18 hours and quit again, again as I pulled out the stem it started running and is currently running also keeping Almost perfect time _2-3 sec in 18 hours. Can anyone tell me whats up. Was there a reset to be done? Or is the movement bad, which I found for less than 10 bucks. I also checked and the battery is in tight. Sorry for the crappy pics.

Now I'm realy baffeled, the watch stopped again and when I unscrewed the crown the stem broke. Now I removed the movement , set the time and it is working fine for a week. ??? I guess I'll take it to my watch man. Hopefully all it needs a new stem.

That's pretty possible.
Even if the movement is shot, a new one will only set you back around $10. It will cost more money for your watch guy to swap the hands and dial than the movement is worth :)

I un screwed the crown to check it and the stem was broken. So possibly it just needs a stem. Whenever the crown was screwed out just a slight turn the watch would work. Possibly the problem all along.

Guess in a weird way it being a broken stem is a good thing right rokwldr?! :thumb:

Hopefully that's all it is, and not anything bigger, and you can keep on enjoying that one ! :smile:

I will fix it with in reason cause I like it. It is a West Marine watch, and it is hard to find any imfo. I think it was made by Time Concepts, which I know makes Szanto watches. I checked, the movement costs $8 to buy. Hopefully the stem can be replaced reasonably.

I hope it doesn't cost too much for you to fix. Sounds like a really neat watch ! :) ..Keep us posted on what you decide, and good luck also !
