Hi to everyone here, this is my first post and unfortunately I'm in need of help after opening up and dismantling my G-9100 Gulfman.
I'd never changed a battery in this watch so went about just swapping out the battery. Silly me though, thought that the opening clip for the battery was underneath, so I took most of the watch apart, but later realised this was not needed!
I fitted the new battery, but noticed a small gold spring on the table :(
After putting the watch back together including the silver case spring, the watch is keeping time from 12:00 and 01-01 date but none of the buttons work.
I've taken the watch apart again and put it back together (still minus the gold spring as I don't know where it goes) but still exactly the same result, none of the buttons work.
If somebody could give me any advice on where this gold spring goes in the watch, it would be much appreciated. I'm hoping that once the gold spring is fitted, the buttons start working. Hopefully I haven't destroyed the watch in some way.
I've added many images of the watch and the main parts, along with the gold spring (next to the case silver spring for size) in the hope that somebody can point me in the right direction.
