I bought a lot of watches today from an auction and am going through them. There are several manual mechanical watches which cannot be wound any further -- when I tried to get them going they were already jammed as wound as they could go. The crown will click back towards me but that does nothing to power the watch. I can pull the crowns out to adjust the hands but that's it! Anyone know if there's anything that can be done for them?
There's also a Bulova that's automatic and the stem won't catch at all to wind it nor adjust the hands. It's in generally terrible condition so I will probably just put it on ebay for parts and see if anyone is interested.
On the upside, there were a couple decent Raketas and a very old Elco "Watermatic" (???) that still run. The manual Timex and pendant Craba/Slava which I quite like are unfortunately two of the ones that are jammed! :(
