My second ever watch has developed leanings...

Post by tikkathree »

Just went to grab my only fully digital watch for a response to a post about Garmin wristwear, my 48 year old Casio, and look - the display has slipped off alignment!!

How can this happen? How serious might it be? This watch spends its life "three up" or "nine up" ; honestly I don't remember which it is. I never wear it but keep it for purely sentimental reasons.

The pushers don't function so I'm about to pop the back and I'm hoping to find that a fresh battery might set things alright but watch this space....

Lol! The movement is likely circular and has rotated- misaligning the pushers in the process. Back off, change battery, tweak the movement around, say a few hail marys, bish bash.

Misalignment issues! :thumbdown: :lol:

On a more serious note, the module has shifted and the pushers on the right are no longer making contact. Probably the upper left too. Realigning the module should fix everything right up :thumbup:

That tilt seems fishy, I hope the liquid crystal doesn’t leak out at that alarming angle. :p

My first G-Shock has a round movement. Pop it out and reseat it and you’re good to go. Just take care with the pusher tabs that they don’t get bent in the process.

Well I can't find the warranty certificate nor the receipt from buying this at the local Dixons when I was 21....

So it's perhaps as well that @thomcat00 , @rkovars and @richtel were accurate in their combined diagnoses: the circular movement had slipped rotationally.

Pushers work, time set to BST, the current battery - which is years and years old and almost as big as the case itself, is still working. Back on the shelf for another 30 years.....
