Bulova 17

Bulova wristwatch M4 won't run HELP!?

I have a Bulova men's wristwatch which looks in great shape. I removed the back and it is 17 jeweled winding watch M4. I wound the stem counterclockwise and it does not watch to run. The stem does not want to move in the clockwise motion-it seems tight. Is there something I can do or need to do? Any help or guidance would be much appreciated. I really do not want to take it to a watch repair place.

You probably will have to take it to a watch repair place. My guess is the stem and crown has been stripped and will need to be replaced. Depending on the damage the movement might be toast as well as a new stem will not fit in it properly. You can open up the caseback to look, but doing so yourself can void the warranty if there still is one

Plus, anytime you open up the caseback, you want to be sure to replace the rubber gasket on the back to the watch remains sealed and water resistant.

If you do take it to a shop, I recommend Precision Time. They have 85 stores across the country and a mail-in repair shop.

Good luck!
