What You Need To Know About the Stem & Crown of Your Watch
The stem and crown are essential components of any mechanical watch, and they play a vital role in keeping your timepiece running accurately. The stem is the small metal piece that connects the crown to the watch movement. The crown is the button used to wind and set the time on the watch. Over time, these parts can become damaged or worn, which can lead to problems with the accuracy and functionality of your watch.
How Do Stem & Crown Replacements Work?
The watch crown is used to set the time, date, and day/date function, and is connected to the watch movement by the stem. If the crown or crown and stem become detached, do not try to reattach it yourself as it may cause damage to the movement. Our certified watchmakers may need to evaluate the watch and may replace both the crown and stem if necessary.
It is important to ensure the watch remains water resistant and the crown has the right fit. In some cases, the movement may also be damaged and require replacement. Replacement crowns can usually be sourced from the manufacturer, but if not available, a generic crown can be used.
Can a Watch Be “Over Wound?”
The phrase “over wound” is a bit of a misnomer. Technically a watch could be over wound to the point of actually breaking the mainspring and other components, however, if that were the case, the damage would be catastrophic. In most instances, the watch is just old/worn and in need of service. “Overdue” is a better way to think of it.
