This free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live — but I receive nothing for my efforts if you buy elsewhere. I'm not NPR; I get no government hand-outs and run no pledge drives to support my research, so please always use any of these links for the best prices and service whenever you get anything. Thanks for helping me help you! Ken.


Adorama pays top dollar for your used gear.

What is a Lever-Set Watch?

Normal watches are set by pulling-up the crown. This is easy, but if you are a railroad man and accidentally move the time while winding your watch, you might have your train in the right place at the wrong time when another train is coming the other way, and people get killed.

Lever set watches are set instead by pulling out a tiny, separate lever, and then turning the crown.

Most lever set watches have a lever at the edge of the dial, and to get to it, you have to open (usually unscrew) the crystal. Remove the crystal, carefully pull-out the lever with a fingernail, and set the watch by turning the crown.

Be sure to remember to push the lever back in before you try to reattach the crystal; if you don't, you may cross-thread your crystal and you still won't get it back on.


Help me help you         top

I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

If you find this page as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.
