    setting a polerouter watch

    Hi These may seem like some idiot questions to everybody but I need some help with a Polerouter watch I just purchased off ebay. Its A Universal Geneve Polerouter automatic. When it arrived it was almost an hour out so to adjust the time I pulled the crown out to do the adjustment but the whole thing came out, crown and long stork. I knew it had a replacement crown but surely it should not come all the way out. It also turns the hands anyway when its fully in, which i never initially noticed or am i putting it back in incorrectly. I may also be getting it wrong but even though is automatic I should b able to wind it?. When i attempt this as I said earlier it just moves the hands. Obviously I have contacted the seller but would like independent advice if someone got the time to answer. Loved it as well, first attempt at buying a nice watch. Many Thanks

    The crown should not pull out and no you can't just push it back in. You have probably discovered the first of several reasons the watch was for sale on Ebay. Unless the price was really really good and you want to spend money fixing it just follow Geoff's advice.
