Hello All,

I found watch I had all through high school but alas it was in a box of stuff from mum and dad and the battery died in the movement....bit of a clean...but battery gets hot and nothing happens with the watch....

I will strip it down but looks like a cheap donor is in order....

How do I get the crown out?

I have poked and prodded an pushed...confused?

I know this is a cheapie...but sentimental value...

Thanks in advance.

At the end of the "push" arrowhead, there's a hole - use some magnification to look inside and then pull the crown to different positions, in one position you'll see an arm appear - push it with a handy implement (not farming) and remove the crown and stem.
DON'T lose the contact spring!!!!!

Got crown out.

Stripped movement and cleaned out all the blue gunk from everywhere!

I assume metho is ok for cleaning quartz?

I put it all back together and AHA it works!

The alarm screen flashes a little but rest is ok...

Small spring? There wasn't one when I opened the back.

Can I substitute anything? Thankyou :)

You might be able to use a spring from a spring bar, just make sure it's not too strong that it'll cause damage. It's the alarm sounder contact.

By any chance does anyone know where to find some technical sheets on the Miyota 4800-01A movement? Looks like I got here four years too late.
