Stem/crown for this Fero Feldmann ladies watch - but WHAT exactly?

Recommended Posts

Hello there watch fix fans. Here's (I hope) an interesting one for you.

I have this beautiful small ladies 'Fero Feldmann' Swiss-made watch - it came in a bag of "used and to be repaired" watches.

From what I can see, the mechanism seems in very good working order. Just a slight shake and it goes and goes. There is no strap, but that is not the issue here.

The problem is the stem and/or crown. As you can see, there is definitely no crown. But I am wondering about the stem.

The watch does have its case and edoes have, as you can see, a hole where the stem and/or crown will/should fit in.

There is something which appears to be some kind of part-stem at the 3 o'clock position.

Using tweezers I can pull it out and push it back in quite freely. A very small screw on top holds this "stem" in place. I think you can see, in ths second photo, how this "stem" attaches to the rest of the movement.

Clearly I need to attach a crown. BUT what about a stem? A stem extension? Or one of those crowns which has an extended stem-like attachment which should fix onto this current "stem" in this watch?

Yes, the watch face is somewhat scratched, and the minute hand is a little bent at the top. You may say it is not worth my while trying to get this fixed. But I just SO MUCH like this little watch and would LOVE to give it life again! It clearly IS still "alive" - though I'm not sure if it is a mechanical wind-up or an automatic. The latter of these seems to be the case - as I said earlier, a little shake and the mechanism goes and goes. PErhaps with a little oil (and lots of encouragement) it can be made good.

So my main question - what kind of stem/crown to attach and how to do it?

Nobody on here would ever say that, it's a watch forum and therefore EVERY watch is worth fixing and bringing back to life, regardless of monetary value :yes:

@simon2 will be along shortly, and he will almost definitely be able to help with your problem.

Welcome to the forum by the way :thumbsup:

Good Morning Wilding, 

I would recommend a new stem (long pipe crown or stem extension wont work on this occasion) 

this is a wind up movement not automatic, 

can you send me some pictures of the back or front of the movement please 

so I can identify what stem you would need

many thanks 

simon

Hello Simon

I'm not sure I can open this up if that is what you need me to do.

I think I have identified the movement now  --   EB 133374

What stem/crown goers with this?

Thanks Simon! Yes I really like it too. But the watch face has some not so nice scratches on it, though these may not be so noticeable if the light is off them ;)

Sorry but where is the 'forum links directory'?
