    Default Miyota stem removal

    I think I have mentioned previously that I volunteered to check clocks and watches given to our local Hospice Shop before they are offered for sale, hopefully reducing the number of returns! A large number of specimens are ladies basic quartz "department store watches". Also one of the more popular movements is a Miyota basic movement. From time to time I would like to replace a failed movement in a good case with a working specimen which requires the removal of the winding stem. With most other movements I can locate an arrow depicting a "pusher" point but the Miyota has no indication whatever on how to disengage the stem. I have tried to determine this by dismantling faulty movements but have failed to solve the problem. This movement is metal not black plastic.
    I would welcome help on this query to enable me to match up a few good movements and cases which I now have to hand.

    Usually with a pusher like others, just not marked on their basic movements. Look for a small hole near the stem. Look in the hole as you pull stem to setting position. If you see a part move into position push on it as you pull stem gently. Some movements have a metal "yoke" with a dimple to indicate where to push.

    Hi Whizzer Thank you for your very rapid response. I will look at the movement again with your comments but I am not hopeful as a thought I had "pushed" just about all likely holes and moving parts around the stem!!
    I had already looked at the Watch School site but it is not helpful on my query. It does show a Miyota movement but this has clearly marked pusher points.

    Can you post a picture or two of your particular watch?

    Ouchie,
    Post the movement model number so we can see if someone has the same one. Some of the metal movements may have a retaining screw near the stem. loosen the screw a half turn at a time and try to remove the stem. Don/t loosen more than 2 turns or you will never get it back together.

    I am attaching a photo of the Miyota movement. It has no identifying marks other than the name Miyota Co. on the plate. It is an exteremly common basic quartz movement found in many low priced watches. Sorry for the quality, my camera is also pretty basic!

    thats an easy one.. is a very common movement, there should be a little dot on the setting lever, just press it down with the tweezers. I borrowed your pic and modifided, hope you dont mind. its where the arrow points.

    It is not actually a hole, it is just a little dimple. Press it with the stem in the winding position and pull on the stem.

    Hi,
    I got the stem out, thanks to your help. Now, how to get it back in? It doesn't just push in, keeps coming back out when I try to set the time.
